The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500. The contact stated that the vehicle was making a loud noise, which progressively grew louder while driving 40 mph. He took the vehicle to the repair shop and the mechanic stated that the front suspension wheel bearing failed. A report was filed with the manufacturer and they stated that the VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 07V038000 (suspension: Front: Wheel bearing). The contact will have the vehicle repaired. The current and failure mileages were 54,000.

  • 34,500 miles
My 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 had bad tie rods, track bar and steering damper with less than 36000 miles on it. At the point it became apparent, the truck became very unstable and hard to keep on the road. I took it to modica brothers in my town to have it fixed because any dealerships were at least an hour from me and I felt I needed my vehicle fixed as soon as possible. After getting the truck repaired it was brought to my attention that the truck was still covered under warranty. I have contacted Dodge concerning this and was denied coverage because I did not have the truck towed and go to a Dodge dealership to have the truck repaired.
