Own a 2007-2009 Dodge Ram DPF Problem?

by MYCARLADY

Chrysler – Dodge Vs. Ram 2500-3500 6.7l Diesel owners!

The case against Chrysler over the faulty Ram trucks equipped with DPF emissions systems on the 2007-2009 Dodge Cummins Diesel 6.7L continue in recent court filings at the hands of Honorable Judge J. Michelle Childs.

While the Judge denied the motion by Chrysler to dismiss the complaint against them, the next step is an official certification of the case as a class-action which would embrace thousands of current and maybe former owners around the country.  Many unsuspecting owners purchased these trucks a pre-owned, used trade-ins from Dodge dealers who took them in trade and knowingly sold them again or sent them to auction, sans BUYBACK status. Buyback status would have alerted some to the previous owners problems leading to an official LEMON-LAW or BUYBACK issue.

Many Dodge Ram 2500-3500 6.7L owners have suffered huge financial losses, as small business owners lost work while their trucks sat in dealership service departments waiting for repairs, computer updates or replacement turbos. This blog has seen letters about owners being charged thousands of dollars for repairs due to disavowed warranty claims for everything from bad fuel to inappropriate driving.

If you have a story to tell and want your voice heard, you may elect to send a letter or post a complaint on the NHTSA-sponsored website: www.safecar.gov  link shown below.

While many of you have repeated your stories here, and shared your experiences in the hopes of being heard, you may also elect to volunteer your information to the Judge, showing support for her decision to deny Chrysler’s attempt at a dismissal.  I would imagine the dollar value in damages to owners of these trucks is in the tens of millions of dollars, not to mention the millions of dollars Chrysler has already spent on buybacks and replacement attempts to mitigate the problem.

If you elect to write a letter to the Judge, send it in c/o the Clerk of Court.

I don’t know if it will make a difference in the final opinion of the class action status, but at least you will put your voice out there and MAYBE NHTSA will make a move too!
