Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE IN THE FALL OF 2013. I HAVE HAD MULTIPLE OCCASIONS WHERE THE CAR FISHTAILS IN WET OR SNOWY CONDITIONS. I TRANSPORT 4 CHILDREN ON A DAILY BASIS, AND THIS CAR SCARES ME. I HAVE DRIVEN IN WINTER CONDITIONS FOR MANY YEARS, AND I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THE TERROR THIS CAR CAUSES. I HAVE TO DRIVE 25-35 MPH ANYWHERE I GO ON WET OR EVEN MILDLY SNOWY ROADS OR LOSE CONTROL OF THIS CAR. I ALSO KNOW A FEW OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE SAME ISSUES I HAVE, WITH THE SAME CAR. I HAVE ALSO FOUND MANY SIMILAR COMPLAINTS ONLINE WITH THIS VEHICLE AS WELL AS ITS SISTER VEHICLE THE CHRYSLER 200. I DO BELIEVE A SERIOUS INVESTIGATION NEEDS TO BE DONE ON THIS VEHICLE BEFORE ANYONE IS SERIOUSLY HURT OR KILLED IN AN ACCIDENT BECAUSE OF THIS ISSUE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

CAR HAS NO HEAT ON PASSENGER SIDE AND A LITTLE ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. IN MY INVESTIGATION THE HEATER CORE FROM THE FACTORY HAS SOME BAD SPOTS ON THE INSIDE THAT CAUSE METAL TO BUILD UP INSIDE HEATER CORE CAUSING THIS ISSUE. IN THE WINTER MAKES IT SOMETIMES IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE OUT THE FRONT WINDSHIELD BECAUSE IT WILL NOT DEFROST THE WINSHIELD. I THINK THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE THAT SHOULD BE COVERED UNDER A RECALL BY DODGE. IT HAPPENS WHEN THE CAR IS DRIVING ON ANY ROAD. THIS IS AN ISSUE KNOWN BY DODGE AND THEY DONT WANT TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

ON 7/24/2020 I WAS INVOLVED IN AN A FRONT END ACCIDENT. AFTER TAKING IT TO A COLLISION CENTER THEY WENT DIRECTLY THROUGH THE INSURANCE COMPANY. THE INSURANCE SOMPANY AGENT INDICATED THEY TOTALED OUT THE CAR DUE TO AN AIR BAG ISSUE. THE CLOCK SPRING IN THE STEERING WHEEL CAUSED THE AIR BAG LIGHT TO TURN ON, THEY ALSO INDICATED THE THE AIR BAG CONTROL MODULE WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED AND A SEATBELT MODULE. THE AGENT SAID THAT WOULD BE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO REPLACE AND IT'S NOT SAFE FOR THE ROADS SO THEY TOTALED THE CAR OUT.

WORTH A LAWSUIT. DASH LIGHTS UP, ENGINE SHUTS OFF, STEERING WHEEL LOCKS, CAR SOMETIMES STARTS AGAIN BUT NOT ALWAYS. WE PAID THE DEALER TO FULLY REPLACE THE CRANK SENSOR BUT THAT ISN'T FIXING IT. TPM SENSOR WARNING APPEARED AND ISN'T GOING AWAY DESPITE DEALER STATING IT SHOULD. REPLACING PSI SENSOR DID NOT CORRECT THIS SYSTEM WARNING EITHER. DEALER SAID WARNING APPEARED 518 MILES BEFORE WE TOOK IT IN BUT THE ERROR OCCURRED ON 5/12/19 AND WE TOOK IT IN ON 5/14/19, ONLY DRIVING ABOUT 15 MILES FROM 5/12 - 5/12/19. EITHER DEALER LIED OR INFO ISN'T BEING HELD ON COMPUTER'S MEMORY. TIRED OF ALMOST GETTING CRASHED INTO BECAUSE THE CAR RANDOMLY DIES.

Summary of Complaint

FOR THE 3RD OR 4TH TIME MY CAR HAS SUDDENLY LURCHED/JERKED FORWARD FOR UNKNOWN REASONS. THE FIRST TWO TIMES I WAS AT A RED LIGHT INTERSECTION AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN THE CAR UNEXPECTEDLY JERKED FORWARD WITHOUT WARNING OR EXPLANATION. I RESEARCHED IT ONLINE AND FOUND SIMILAR ISSUES WITH OTHER DODGE OWNERS. SOME MENTIONING THE THROTTLE POSITIONING SENSOR. I'M NOT A MECHANIC SO I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE AS TO WHAT IS OCCURRING. THIS LATEST OCCURRENCE CAUSED A MINOR SLOW SPEED 'BUMPER TAG' BUMP TO THE CAR AHEAD OF ME TO THE CAR AHEAD. MY DASHCAM CAPTURED THE INCIDENT. THE DASHCAM VIDEO IS *.MOV FORMAT BUT IS VERY CLEAR IN 1080P WITH SPEED, DATE, AND TIME STAMPED. IF YOU WOULD LIKE THAT I WOULD NEED TO EMAIL THAT OTHER THAN THIS WEBSITE PLATFORM. YOU WILL SEE THE BUMPER COLLISION OCCURRED AT 3MPH. NO MARKS WERE LEFT ON EITHER VEHICLES.
