I have a buddy who just got a new 2007 6.7, anyways he put almost 400 miles on it and when he was pulling a horse trailer and lost his breaks... has anyone heard of this happening to anyone else?
Brake fade has nothing to do with the brake fluid (big rigs don't even have brake fluid). It is when the pads and rotors or shoes and drums get so hot that they cannot create enough friction to be effective. This is why big rigs (and newer CTDs) have engine brakes of some kind.He may have had what is called brake fade which is when the fluid overheats
Well he spoke to his lawer and since they sold the truck to him as USED he can only try and sue the dealer, if it were still NEW then it would go threw Chrysler.... Now this is what he told me that his lawer said, so i dont know the law for which one he can actually do without me trying to call lawer's and what not...Sue them to cover court and lawyer fees. Bieng that the truck is so new this is a safety issue and should be paid directly by Chrysler. Know your laws people and don't be afraid of intimidation.
