Re: Potential first problems with New SRT8s...

4-wheel drive problem has legs

Kingmonkey had the truck in today for service; not good news at all!

They found out that the transfer case has to be replace completely because they said it was a sealed unit 2012 SRT8 used only and requires a entire unit with solenoids.They said the rear wheels are not unlocking on turns which creates a clicking sound in the rear end.Lets hope it doesnt take long.

Re: Potential first problems with New SRT8s...

Case #3 verified
Another guy on red site, believe he is in PA because his went through the same rail yard as my dealer's. Same issue as Kingmonkey.
Quote:
FUG!!!!! Mine arrived this morning...just went up to see it. Drove it and it does exactly what KM's does...feel like the hubs are locked when making slow 90 degree turns in forward or reverse. It has 12 miles on it and someone had to notice it....I thought I ran something over when first going in reverse....wtf!!!!
In addition, another gent who was trying to get to the bottom of the hold issues was working it through his dealer's GM. GM got some info and passed along they are being held due to a "knocking defect" as well.

needing your entire transfer case replaced on a $60k+ vehicle with 12 miles is NOT a little problem.

Re: Potential first problems with New SRT8s...

it is to me...because NONE of the owners will have to pay for it. And I have replaced a transfer case in my neighbors 2007 GC...it was cheap and easy. Like I said above...it happens with ALL makes.

don't know of one GTO in '04, '05, '06 that had a diff blow, engine blow, or tranny blow.

I don't care if I have to pay for it or not, there shouldn't be an issue like this on a $60k+ product that Chrysler has marketed as such a wonderful vehicle that they raised the price $13,000+

LOL......3 second bing search on gto blown motor

http://www.gtoforum.com/f37/2005-blown-motor-4720/

as soon as he drove it off the lot.....


Point is NO matter what you pay for a vehicle...that is mass produced, hand made or one of a kind.....$10000-$10,000,000....someone, somewhere is gonna have a problem. Sux for the owner.....but its just reality. $60K is not a lot for a vehcile nowadays. Hell....Kia's and Hyundais are getting in that range.....
