I've got a brand new, three week old 2011 DC 4X4 Sport, and today I noticed something weird. As I was sitting in the driver's seat, I looked out over the hood and I noticed that on the back left and right hand corners of the hood scoop there seemed to be a slight crimp in the hood. Then, when I opened the hood, I noticed that the skin of the hood had come loose from the reinforcement cross-members beneath the hood in the exact same area where the crimps are. Has anyone else seen this? The only thing I've done is open and closed the hood a few times since I've owned the truck. What the heck gives?
Also, another issue I'm having is that sometimes when I start the truck up, it makes a grinding like sound whenever the AC compressor kicks in. It only does it once in a while, particularly like when the truck has been parked for a while (for 12 hours or so) and it only does it for a couple of seconds, then it stops. After it does it, I can switch the truck off and start it again and it will only repeat the noise once. After that, when I start it, it acts normal. Again, does anyone have any ideas what it going on here. Sure do hope I haven't bought a lemon.
