Re: About to pull the trigger need some last minute advice
I bought my RL the beginning of December. A friend recommended I join this site. I kept hearing these horror stories and thought what am I getting into. Apparently nothing because I have had none of the issues described.
Mine was beyond the wiring harness issue. That little cable thingy you need for towing was in the glove box. No odd sounds, nothing, I love this truck as much or more than the day we drove it home. Every machine has the ability to have something go wrong but remember for every one person who says they have this issue or that, there are probably hundreds that will never have those issues or any issues at all.
I can say my RL has never hesitated but I do have the AWD.
Ditto #2. Mine did have a strange wind noise above 70 mph, but the dealer identified the cause and fixed it immediately. As far as the shake after stopping, if mine has it I'm unaware of its presence. Now have ~3800 miles on odometer and have zero regrets, including color choice. I plan to keep this truck for 20 years. My only complaint stems from growing up at a time of rotary phones and black & white TV sets, I'm still trying to figure out how to use the infotainment and navigation systems. Intend on hiring a teenager to ride around with me
PS-like you I read all the posts on ROC.com and watched the videos. As a result I had pre-purchased a screen saver, but delayed putting in on. The first couple of weeks my screen had tons of fingerprints all over it, but I found as I mastered more of the steering wheel controls I touched the screen far, far less and now am unlikely to use the screen saver. Fingerprints are easily removed with microfiber cloth.
