I’m the original owner of a 2016 eco diesel- matter a fact I loved it so much I bought the lease out.. never had any problems till after the emissions fix at about 80k miles.. service electronic throttle control code came on and truck went into limp mode- (with 1/4 tank of gas) pulled over sat for a minute cuz now it wouldn’t start then it starts up no problem, I fill fuel up and the code goes away so I think nothing of it.. next time I’m down to 1/4 of a tank, same thing happens.. after fill up code goes away, and truck drives fine.. so for the next few months being real busy with work ans family and not having time to bri g it to the dealer I make sure I keep the fuel topped off regularly and haven’t had any issues till last week.. all in the same week.. egr cooler starts leaking , throws a po 428 catalyst code, then exhaust filter 100% full service required see dealer.. so I call dealer, they can’t get me in till March 3 but tell me I shouldn’t drive it!! I also noticed in the egr cooler recall it says truck could catch fire!! Been on phone with ram customer service trying to get rental covered with no luck and I’ve missed a week of work already.. so my question is— should I just drive the truck and if it catches fire or the motor is damaged the warranty and recalls should cover damages, no?? I’ve got a $60k brick sitting in my driveway now !!
