    Fingers Crossed...Brake Squeal Resolved

    Work for a FCA dealership. I had my pads and rotors replaced at 9,000 miles for the squeal of death, under warranty. Now I am at 17,000 miles and it does it every humid or damp morning for the first 1/2 miles I drive. It is incredible that FCA says they are designed to do this, but it is pure...

    Radio update Android Auto not working

    Found the solution, it will clear out how you have your android phone set up. Mainly how the icons are laid out and the background images. You must go into google play and clear cache and force stop, and it will then allow you to re-setup android auto and work. Might take a few minutes, but it...

    Order Tracking

    I wanted to say to everyone in here. If you order a truck with available options. On the 10th of every month is when the factory accepts submitted orders. That being said. I sell Chrysler vehicles. My order was sucked up by the factory the 10th. By the 12th I had a VIN. Yesterday I got my ship...

    22 Inch rims......How do they ride?

    They ride nice. But you cannot fully tell due to the fact that the Limited comes with Air Ride. I drive both 18s 20s and 22s most days working at the dealership. Is their a difference. Yes, going from 18 to 20 there is not much, but you can tell a handling difference with the 22s, but the air...

    Help me understand this one!

    The purpose is in hopes of Chrysler being nice enough to overlook your credit score, you will become brand loyal to them, for their kind favor. And interest is complex.

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    Are many of any of you serious purchasers? the $1,000 rebate lasts until the end of May, and if anyone is actually serious in purchasing, I am all ears to listen, and possibly give out my info, but I am not pulling EP numbers for anyone, unless they bring them to me. To get $1,000 in rebate, and...

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    One thing I would like to say, their are two types of dealerships. One pay a great base salary, and still give bonuses, and others will allow you to make great money, but you have to really hit sales goals, and 2/3 of your monthly pay comes from bonuses. So, please be patient with salesmen, as...

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    I would post paperwork, but I do not know the legality I signed to do such with Chrysler. I will say, on a 2019 1500, higher levels, their is close to $2,000 left in negotiations, even with Employee Pricing.

    Start/Stop Technology

    All I can add is, I have driven 5 2019 Ram 1500s, 1 Big Horn, 1 Limited, 1 Longhorn Laramie, and 2 Laramies. And none have had start stop in them. None have a place for a button to turn it off. And from what I have read. If you get a 5.7 Hemi, without eTorque, there is NO stop/start on it. And...
