2018 R/T Plus

Does anyone know why my taillights always have moisture in them? I just bought the car last month so maybe covered under the dealer warranty?

The housing has a leak allowing rain or car wash moisture to intrude, and will likely need to be removed and checked thoroughly for hairline cracks and such to find all such entry points. Once identified, the cracks and such can be sealed with any number of silicone caulks or sealants.

The factory bumper to bumper warranty would cover this I believe, but whether or not it is still in effect is the question. If the car is a 2018, it should be still covered unless it has exceeded the mileage part of the coverage.

How many miles does the car have on it?

I can’t remember the mileage for the bumper to bumper, but I think it’s definitely more than 19K...something like 36K it seems like.

Make an appointment and take it in, they should be able to tell you if it’s still under warranty at the local Dodge dealership service Dept

3-year or 36,000-mile basic warranty, 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty, roadside assistance for five years or 100,000 miles, and rust-through coverage for five years or 100,000 miles

FYI, it's good to message @DodgeCares if any dealer issues arise.
