Recall the u-connect system on this nice vehicle

The u connect system is not working properly. It should be recalled. Company should replace the system it control too many in the vehicle. Control bouncing all over the place. For the dealer to look at the truck it's almost $200. And $1300_$1400 to replace. Beautiful truck but awful system. For the price we pay it a shameful to pay for this repair

Beautiful But Rough Ride

I bought this truck with 100000 miles already. Beautiful truck! I only have a couple of complaints. The ride, one can feel every pebble in the road! Shocks and better tires may help. 2x4. Need to add more things like memory seats and adjustable pedals, to the Lonestar truck and it would be perfect.
