2008 Dodge Ram 2500 ProblemsWater Leak Due to Faulty Rear Window Seal
On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.
A vibration or shimmy felt in the steering wheel when driving over rough roads may be caused by a worn steering damper and tie rod ends. Also be sure the tires are correctly inflated, alignment is within specification and suspension components are tightened properly.
The thermostat may fail to close completely, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This problem will prevent the engine from reaching normal operating temperature; a new thermostat should be installed.

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
