2019 Issues?

Dealers in my area have a large amount of leftover 2019's 3500's & 2500's that have been sitting on the lot for close to and over a year. Any well known issues with the 2019 6.7's?

Recall for fire risk. Tranny dipstick can spit fluid on the turbo and catch fire. Waiting for parts for them to get fixed. I think there is a stop sale on 2019s due to this. This doesn’t apply to 3500s with the High Output Cummins.

They did issue a stop sale. The dealers lot is a sea of yellow windshield decals

Fire risk is only for the 68 equipped trucks so saying it’s an HD wide truck issue is not correct.


Here is a summary of things;
Hoods being effected by wind
TCM and ECM updates have been had
No solid recalls but plenty of TSBs
Body mounts issues
DEF consumption
One had their motor replaced for a ticking noise


So


Nothing that unusual and if you are comparing a 2020 to a 2019 get a 2019 and save the money. Nothing on the 2019s have been addressed on the 2020s so any warm and fuzzy of getting “a model year” later is literally just throwing money at a feel good scenario.

Also, if you’re looking at GM and Ford, they ALL released new and updates trucks around the same time so take a look at the issues they begin to have once they get some sales under em.

HVAC/AC temp control issues
Accessory drive (serpentine belt) clicking/squeaking issues

Interior clunking noise (body mounts?)
Ford & the General have operational, whiz bang camera systems and TTPMS. Ram has offered platitudes...

Haven't used the A/C much, being winter (although not that cold in the south) but my heat seems to be all over the place. I set the temperature around 66-68 and one minute I'm getting piping hot air and the next freezing cold air.

Does this sound like what you're referring to? Is this documented anywhere? TSB maybe?

Yep, that's it. Some threads here on the problem but more over at HD Rams. I'm not aware of a any related TSBs or a definitive fix for the issue.
