  1. They fix all kinds of rattles under warranty. That letter is there fix unless you force them. They know what’s wrong and at least one way to fix it. It’s a numbers game now, they know very few will push the issue. Those that do will get compensated. Say 10k trucks effected, they know 90 percent will accept the dealers claim nothing is wrong. So that leaves 1000. Of those 80 percent will take the warranty, that leaves 200 to buy back or repair. So what’s cheaper to fix at 3k per truck? 1000 repairs at 3000 ea. Or 200 at 3k? 3 million vs 600k. Of the 600k, they just resell the returned truck with no warranty and reduce there cost to only the difference between their cost to build a new truck vs resale of the returned truck.
  2. Yes, it’s a short drive to the Jeep dealer
  3. Maybe it’s more of a geometry issue that the lift kit fixes.
  4. Remember, they were fixing them or at least trying. That is clear cut proof there is a problem. It is evidence in your favor. If it is true that the GM stuff is fine, it tells you two things. 1. The AAD stuff is defective in some way. 2. GM will never fix the issue because they already have the fix in hand. They are just stringing you out until they don’t have to pay. You have an easy case, but, you will never get anything unless you go the lemon law and hire attorney for that. GM choose to use an outside vendor and they are responsible. They already admitted a problem and have a fix for it. They can make all the excuses they want, facts are in.

  6. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Cooling-Off Rule allows you to cancel a contract when you purchase something at your home or at a location that is not the permanent place of business for the seller. But not all sales can be canceled under this rule. Exemptions include sales that are under $25, goods or services that are not designed for use in the home, sales made by mail or over the phone, a sale that is arranged from prior discussions at the seller's permanent place of business, goods or services needed for an emergency, and repairs to personal property that are solicited by the buyer. The Cooling-Off Rule does not cover transactions that involve real estate, securities or insurance, automobiles sold at a temporary location (as long as the seller has a permanent place of business) and arts and crafts sold at fairs
  7. Personally, I think GM boxed themselves in. They were repairing them because it was defective and now nothing. It’s going to be hard to say nothing is wrong and don’t need repaired at some point. Unless you get some spoon fed arbitrator or judge that never mowed their own lawn, they will see it. It’s a numbers game now. GM sells what 180k in trucks, let’s say 1% is effected. That’s 1800 jingles, maybe 5% of those go thru the hassle. So they make 90 people whole by upgrading them to a new unit vs spending 2-3k on 1800 trucks. Hire an attorney, you will get a new truck
  8. Hind site is 20-20, but damm you should have returned the truck the same day. You have 72 hrs to back out of a contract.
  9. What choice do you have? GM refuses to fix it. So, .......
  10. I never said easy. The only recourse is a good attorney. GM will not spend thousands of dollars on these trucks without a fight. GM has clearly taken a calculated risk that these units will hold up through the warranty period.
  11. The manufacturer is required to pay for the attorney fees. A good attorney will review your case and only take it if they think they have a good chance at winning so they get paid. Those of you that have this issue have a great case. Ask for the engineering data that proves that this 10 lb of axle bouncing about an inch will not destroy the bearing and or diff housing. It was not designed to do this.
  12. Grounding post question.

    Looks like a set screw on the side
