On our way home from a 10 week trip, we found ourselves this morning at Jim Cogdill Dodge in Knoxville, TN, due to an engine power loss issue which stemmed from a "turbo resonator problem". This was apparently due to a design flaw in the Mercedes-Benz diesel engine in our 06 Interstate. (This information courtesy of Steve (TinLoaf), whose assistance this am was invaluable--thank you again, Steve. I owe you cookies or brownies, your choice.)
Dodge computer records showed our Dodge/Sprinter warranties commenced in 2005 although we are an 06 Interstate and our original-owner purchase was not until April 2007, at which time we were told warranties began. Repairs with expired warranties were going to cost $1,000.00.
After a call from us, Jim Parrett at AS Customer Service got on the phone with Samantha at Chrysler/Dodge and emailed her our original purchase information. He/she rectified the problem and reissued accurate warranty information while repairs were occurring.
Repairs are completed and we are back on the road with minimal out of pocket expense. Note to self: camping on beaches=dirty air filter.
Kudos to Airstream Customer Service, Chrysler/Dodge and Jim Cogdill Dodge in Knoxville, TN. Four stars for Customer Service, all the way around.
