How was the process? Smooth? I'm about to jump on the lemon ordering myself.I have a megacab that has been in D1 status since August. It was a sold order and "hot tagged" since it is a lemon replacement.
I was told recently that there was a hold on all Megacabs until 11/11, but have started seeing them delivered.
Anyone know what the deal is with this?
Horrid. I had to hire a lawyer and it took a long time. Truck had cronic death shake and would ruin transmissions putting itself into first gear randomly at highway speeds. After about the 10th time it attempted to kill me I hired a lawyer.How was the process? Smooth? I'm about to jump on the lemon ordering myself.
Thanks for the reply.Horrid. I had to hire a lawyer and it took a long time. Truck had cronic death shake and would ruin transmissions putting itself into first gear randomly at highway speeds. After about the 10th time it attempted to kill me I hired a lawyer.
Dodge agreed that it was to dangerous to drive so they lemoned it... But then asked me to keep driving it on a daily basis until the new truck arrives...:confused013:
Turn tow/haul on. I don't even use my brakes till the last 10 feet or so, the transmission downshifts just fine keeping the exhaust brake on until you almost stopWorn out or not, it shifted better at 260,000 miles when I sold it than this one does! I just need to hook up to my 10k tractor and teach it a few lessons! 3-4 trips up and down the shop driveway and it'll be crying!!!
But seriously, the Ally would downshift as you slowed, helping to brake. The Aisin just seems go to sleep when slowing down, and leaves it all to the engine brake. Problem is, the rpm's need to be above 1k or so for it to work- if the tranny doesn't downshift with decreasing speed, thus increasing rpm's, the engine brake quits as well!! I sure hope I don't have to manually hit the shift lever button all the time. That will get old, real fast!! It wouldn't be bad if when you hit the button to downshift it started at the gear you are in, but it starts at 6, and if you are in 3, you have to press it 4 times before anything happens.
Like I said, it ain't an Allison!!
Oh well, let the beatin's , er lessons begin!!
