Now, as a disclaimer, I did purchase my truck pre-owned in April 2020 but still under full factory warranty. It was a one owner with 12k+/- miles. Shouldn’t matter. Still only a 3 year old truck with less than 20k miles.

I was bringing my truck in for a separate warranty issue, and removing my infant car seat base, when I found water and mold under the seat.

The common culprit, 3rd brake light, leaked when I got it. I fixed it with marine silicone because the dealer did a crap job on my last Ram, I ended up doing that on my own as well because it stained my headliner again.
This time, the headliner wasn’t stained and was dry, the cargo light was completely sealed. Also, lol, on my truck the third brake light was poorly repaired by another dealer in 2019, and leaked anyway. I found ANOTHER water leak from the vents behind cab. It pours in. Judging by the rust and corrosion on the seats, it had been leaking for some time.
The dealership the truck is currently at states the truck is 4 months out of warranty, and I should open a case with Ram. Ram “customer service” if you’d call it that, called me today to tell me it wouldn’t be covered. Out of warranty #sorry What?
This is pretty ridiculous and a known issue. For Ram to not take care of Cab leak issues is a complete lack of customer appreciation. I can’t believe this thing even made it past the QC. Mold under my baby on a 3 year old truck? I love my truck and I’m pretty loyal to the Ram brand, but this about does it for me. I fully expected a “no problem” and a goodwill repair. Now I’ve got moldy storage areas, rusty seats, and no doubt moldy wet insulation. If Ram isn’t going to build quality trucks then they better have customer service if you’re going to sell 50k base model trucks.

Here’s a link to the video I made of the leak
