iPhone users never mind, just take lotsa Benjamins to the dealer.
First off it's not a rant, second if you have noting positive to add then why comment.
My son is a tech at an MBZ dealer, if I wanted the code read I would ask him but that's not the point. The point is the truck is 2 months old and has thrown codes and was delivered with a leaky power steering pump. The dealer says make an appointment too busy, it's under warranty and really difficult to make appointments for when a truck throws codes. To me it's a faulty sensor giving the PCM bad info and it throws the code they should fix it no questions asked. I'm a bit amazed at how the dealer seems to shrug off things but then my other cars are euro brands so am I expecting too much for the dealer to actually look into it, have not owned American in 20 years? I'm 100% positive there's stored codes and 100% positive when the service writer scanned the truck to write it up he saw the codes but failed to note them down. I'll take it back to the dealer that sold the truck and go from there.
Mods please close the thread.
