Just my water pump so far, after just 4 days of ownership. The new pump came in today but when they went to install it they discovered the pump is OK but there was a pinched O-ring in the cooling or by-pass tube beside or behind the water pump. They ordered the O-ring and hopefully it will be installed tomorrow. Frustrating....I wish they had removed and discovered the source of the leak a week ago.

Wow that sucks, they at least give you a loaner?

There was a transmission issue. But it's a small recall.


Basically... anything happening so far is just normal manufacturing junk. Build a 1000 trucks a day... and there is liable to be a few with something wrong.

Check engine light with a loss of communication between some of the operating systems.

My head liner rattles. I want to kill the guy who installed it!! I haven't taken the truck in yet but its defienlty coming from the rear drivers side area. What a dumb defect to complain about but it will drive you insane if you want a peaceful drive.

I am still waiting to find out what's wrong with mine. Waiting on a new starter still but not sure that is the real problem. Diagnostics gave over a page and a half of error codes. 3 days on the road, 8 days broke down and counting!
