**** happens. When I bought my first Wrangler, much to my surprise every lift was full of Rams, Jeeps and ****. It happens. I know many people with GM trucks, and never had issues, and people with Rams that had or never had issues.

just broke 94000 miles on my 16 f150, nothing but two oil changes so far, and one set of tires at 81000 if memory is correct. trying to decide if I should get an oil change or buy a new one.

that's because they're all burnt out for being constantly on.

Don't sweat it....My Canyon did it last year at about 18k...they did the fix, special flush and fill with new type fluid and presto better than new...I have 26k on mine now nary a peep ffrom the transmission. Shifts really smooth...better than my c7 did lol... It only takes a couple hours they have the stuff and the fix works perfectly... you're good.


When my lease is up I may go with the Denali Canyon now that they have the fix...Other than that hiccup and the wrong wheel inserts on two wheels my truck has been jelly...

Bummer deal. Getting an issue like that fixed is going to be a pain unless there is a TSB on it since it doesn't reproduce on demand. What you should do is drive that SOB right through the showroom floor window and tell them to go **** themselves. Then buy the F-450 with the 7.3l V8 when it comes out.

it'll be good they have special fittings so they get it done right...When it firs popped up they were flushing and refilling each one four times...it was a gravity deal. I waited to be one of the first with the new procedure...my service guy knew it was coming and they've done 50 or so at my dealer since the new procedure and not one return. Now they force it through and does it much more thorough and the new fluid doesn't have the defect so the shudder won't be back....(I'm hard to please too lol)

It's the same process for vettes, you'll be fine. Ping me on PM if you're thinking about getting a Range device, I have a current new one from my '17 Grand Sport with an A8 that I traded in that I'm looking to sell.
