problem #3

Nov 142003

Ram 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


Dealer replaced at 20,000 miles the left wheel bearing, and at 40,000 miles the right wheel bearing needed to be replaced. Consumer stated normally wheel bearings were replaced at 85,000 miles. Dealer stated that consumer should have bought an extended warranty and won't have this problem. Left wheel bearing failure occured at 20,000 miles. Dodge refused to talk to consumer's wife about the wheel bearing failure. Finally dealership replaced the wheel bearing at the cost of $100. Consumer feels that it is premature for the wheel bearing to have failed for a front end truck that is female driven.

Our fleet is having numerous failures of the front wheel bearings, I'd like to discuss this before the failure causes an accident.
