Summary of Complaint

THE ENGINE OF MY VEHICLE HAS A BAD VIBRATION BETWEEN 1000-1500 RPM. THE DEALER HAS REPLACED THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS AFTER THREE SEPERATE VISITS: FAN CLUTCH, TORQUE CONVERTER, FLEX PLATE, HARMONIC BALANCER, TRANSMISSION MOUNT TO CROSSMEMBER, AND CHANGED THE ENTIRE EXHAUST SYSTEM TO A 1997 VERSION. I FILED A LEMON LAW CLAIM WITH THE MANUFACTURER, HOWEVER THEY NOW STATE IT IS A NORMAL PROBLEM. A MOTOR VIBRATION WILL CAUSE THE ENGINE TO FAIL PREMATURELY IE; BROKEN CRANKSHAFT, OR OTHER INTERNAL COMPONENTS RENDERING THE VEHICLE UNSAFE TO OPERATE AND UNDRIVABLE. THE PROBLEM OCCURS WHEN DRIVING, IN NEUTRAL, AND PARK. REPAIRS ATTEMPTED BY THE DEALER HAVE NOT CORRECTED THE PROBLEM. *AK

Summary of Complaint

THE SPARE TIRE IS LOCATED UNDER THE CAR AND HELD UP WITH A STEEL CABLE VIA A WINCH HOIST. OVER TIME THE STEEL CABLE SHEERED OFF SO AT ONE POINT RECENTLY I LOST THE SPARE TIRE WHILE DRIVING AND I HAVE NOT NOTICED IT. THIS IS A SAFETY PROBLEM AS IT MAY HAVE DAMAGED A VEHICLE FOLLOWING ME. I CERTAINLY DON'T WANT TO BE DRIVING BEHIND ANOTHER PICKUP TRUCK AND SUDDENLY ITS SPARE TIRE FALLS OUT FROM UNDERNEATH IT. ATTACHED IS A PHOTO OF THE SPARE TIRE WINCH HOIST SHOWING THE SHEERED STEEL CABLE. THIS APPEARS NOT TO BE AN ISOLATED CASE AS CERTAINLY THERE ARE VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE AVAILABLE WHERE OTHERS ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE. I DON'T KNOW WHEN EXACTLY I LOST THE SPARE TIRE, I DO KNOW THAT I CHECKED ITS AIR PRESSURE ABOUT 6 MONTHS BEFORE WRITING THIS REPORT, HENCE I AM PICKING BELOW TODAY'S DATE.

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING MY VEHICLE DOWN A CITY STREET I STARTED TO APPROACH A STOP SIGN. AS THE VEHICLE CAME ALMOST TO A STOP I HEARD A SCRAPING NOISE AND THEN THE VEHICLE ABRUPTLY STOPPED. WHEN I PRESSED THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL THE ENGINE WOULD REV AND THE TRUCK WOULD ACT LIKE IT WAS IN PARK WHILE IN "D". I GOT OUT OF THE TRUCK TO INSPECT AND FOUND MY DRIVESHAFT WAS NO LONGER ATTACHED AT THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE, TO THE TRANSFER CASE. NO ABNORMAL NOISES WERE HEARD PRIOR TO THIS, OR ANY RUNNING ISSUES THAT WOULD HAVE INDICATED A PROBLEM. THE TRUCK WILL NOT MOVE IN FORWARD POSITION, BUT WILL ROLL BACKWARDS IN NEUTRAL. ONCE I WAS ABLE TO REMOVE THE DRIVESHAFT FROM THE TRANSFER CASE AND INSPECT, I FOUND THAT THE PINION NUT HAD BACKED OFF AND WAS STILL ENCASED INSIDE THE REAR FLANGE ATTACHED TO THE DRIVESHAFT & U-JOINT. FLUID HAD BEEN BLOWN OUT AND COVERED ALL OF THE REAR AXLE AND DIFFERENTIAL. I WAS ABLE TO ROLL MY VEHICLE IN NEUTRAL BACKWARDS OUT OF THE ROADWAY. WE HAULED VEHICLE HOME USING ONE OF OUR OTHER VEHICLES AND A TRAILER WITH A COME-A-LONG WENCH. VEHICLE IS STILL NOT REPAIRED AT THIS TIME. I HAVE CONTACTED DODGE DIRECTLY AT THE DEALER AS WELL AS THROUGH THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE CHAT. BOTH INSTRUCTED ME THAT NOTHING COULD BE DONE AT THIS TIME. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT I FIX THE VEHICLE AND THAT IF A RECALL WAS RELEASED AT A LATER DATE THEN REIMBURSEMENT COULD POTENTIALLY BE ISSUED. THE REASON I CONTACTED DODGE WAS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH MODEL YEARS THAT ARE SLIGHTLY NEWER THAN MY VEHICLE. A RECALL WAS ISSUED FOR ALMOST 300K VEHICLES FOR THIS EXACT SAME COMPLAINT. I FEEL DODGE SHOULD HAVE DONE FURTHER INVESTIGATION INTO HOW LONG THEY HAD BEEN USING THIS PARTICULAR DESIGN FOR THEIR REAR DIFFERENTIAL PINION NUT AND EXTENDED THE RECALL FURTHER.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE I WAS DRIVING ON A CITY ROAD, THE VEHICLE JUST SHUT OFF. ALMOST LIKE I TURNED THE IGNITION OFF. ALL GAUGES WORKED AS NORMAL, STEREO, A/C, ETC(AUX POWER COMPONENTS) . NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON OR ANYTHING. PULLED TO SIDE OFF ROAD AND TURNED HAZARDS ON. I TRIED TO RESTART VEHICLE IT WOULD TURN OVER BUT WOULD NOT START, I THEN NOTICED IN THE ODOMETER THAT IT STATED "NO BUS" . THINKING IT MAY HAVE BEEN AN ELECTRONIC SYSTEM ISSUE WITH FUEL SYSTEM I CHECKED FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD. I PULLED THE FUEL SYSTEM RELAY OUT THEN REINSTALLED. TRUCK STARTED UP ( ALL THIS TOOK ABOUT 5-10 MIN). SO I PURCHASED A NEW RELAY BUT WAITED TO HAVE SEE IF ISSUE WAS RESOLVED. SITTING IN A PARKING LOT A FEW DAYS LATER I STARTED VEHICLE AND STARTED TO LOAD GROCERIES , THE VEHICLE SHIFT OFF AGAIN, I TRIED TO RESTART AND SAME THING, LOOKED AT ODOMETER AND AGAIN IT STATED 'NO BUS" SO I INSTALLED NEW RELAY. PUT IN OFF POSITION AND TRIED AGAIN. STILL NO LUCK. WAITED A FEW MIN AND TRIED TO START VEHICLE AGAIN AND IT STARTED UP. LOOKED UP ON FORUMS TO FIND POSSIBLE SOLUTION AND THE NEXT STEP WAS TO TRY THE COIL. I HAVE INSTALLED NEW COIL ON 06/05/2018 AND AM CURRENTLY WAITING FOR ISSUE TO COME AGAIN. TO DAY IS 06/06/2018. THINKING BACK THE VEHICLE HAS HAD SOME JERKING MOTIONS THAT ALMOST RESEMBLE THE SAME SYMPTOMS BUT NEVER FULLY DIED , JUST JERKED REALLY BAD BUT CONTINUED TO DRIVE. THIS IS UNSAFE FOR IF I WAS ON A HIGHWAY IT KILLS POWER TO THE POWER STEERING PUMP AND COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. *TR

I COULD HAVE IT REPLACED FOR APPRX 600 USD. ITS NOW 2016 AND I FINALLY HAD MY DASH REPLACED WITH A NEW AFTERMARKET PIECE THAT IS MADE WITH PLASTICS THST ARE DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND SUNLIGHT AND HEAT. WHY IS DODGE ALLOWED TO PRODUCE A PRODUCT THAT FAILS SO EASILY AND NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE? THERE SHOULD BE RELEIF FOR THE OWNERS !!

Summary of Complaint

I'VE ONLY OWNED THE TRUCK FOR ABOUT 8 MONTHS AT THIS TIME. ABOUT 1 MONTH AGO I EXPERIENCED WHAT MY RESEARCH HAS SHOWN TO BE THE DODGE DEATH WOBBLE, THIS IS WHERE ONE OF THE FRONT WHEELS HITS A BUMP IN THE ROAD AT FREEWAY SPEED AND THE FRONT END OSCILLATES VIOLENTLY AND WILL NOT STOP WITHOUT SLOWING THE VEHICLE DOWN AND RADICALLY MOVING THE STEERING WHEEL FROM CENTER (STRAIGHT LINE). IF LEFT TO "WOBBLE" IT SEEMS THAT THE VEHICLE WOULD SHAKE ITSELF TO DEATH!! MAYBE EVEN BREAK A STEERING/SUSPENSION COMPONENT. I DID TRY INSTALLING THE ENHANCED BRACE THAT TIES THE SWAY BAR MOUNTS/ANCHOR POINTS TO A NEW BEARING SUPPORTING AN EXTENSION ON THE PITTMAN ARM SHAFT AND I ALSO HAD THE FRONT END COMPONENTS CHECKED, ALIGNED AND TIRES BALANCED TO NO AVAIL, THOUGH THE BRACE KIT SEEMED TO HELP. IT IS HARD TO PREDICT WHEN A BUMP IN THE ROAD WILL SET IT OFF BUT THE LAST TIME IT HAPPENED I BARELY KEPT IT FROM PULLING INTO THE NEXT LANE BEFORE I GOT IT SLOWED AND CONTROLLED. I NOW TRY TO MINIMIZE MY TIME ON THE FREEWAY IN MY COMMUTE TO/FROM WORK.

I HAVE PLACED PHOTOS OF WHY IT IS A SAFETY CONCERN IN THIS REPORT. THEY HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THIS ISSUE FOR 16 YEARS NOW AND HAVE DONE NOTHING TO FIX IT. IT IS OBVIOUSLY MADE OF DEFECTIVE SUB-STANDARD MATERIAL AND HAS AFFECTED A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WITH THIS MAKE AND MODEL OF PICKUP. THE HUGE CONCERN IS THAT A DASHBOARD OF THIS STANDARD CAN IF NOT ALREADY KILLED OR CAUSED TRAUMATIC INJURIES TO FACE OR HEAD TO PEOPLE IN A COLLISION DUE TO AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT OR EVEN FAILURE TO DEPLOY FOR PASSENGER SIDE. PLEASE TAKE ACTION ON THE MATTER BEFORE STATISTICS TAKE PLACE.

Summary of Complaint

SHORTLY AFTER WE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE BACK IN 2000 THE DASHBOARD STARTED TO CRACK. THROUGHOUT THE YEARS THE PLASTIC DASH HAS BECOME MORE BRITTLE AND THE BROKEN PIECES HAVE THE STRENGTH AND TEXTURE OF PEANUT BRITTLE BUT ARE RATHER SHARP. WE WOULD FIND PIECES ALL OVER THE CAB OF THE TRUCK AND IF YOU DROPPED SOMETHING DOWN IN THE DASH AND TRIED TO RETRIEVE IT, YOU WOULD OFTEN COME IN CONTACT WITH THE SHARP EDGES OF THE PLASTIC THAT WAS STILL ATTACHED TO THE REST OF THE DASH ASSEMBLY. HERE RECENTLY THE INNER-FRAME THAT IS ALSO MADE OF THE SAME FAULTY PLASTIC WHICH HOLDS THE RADIO, TEMPERATURE CONTROLS, HEADLIGHT SWITCH, AIRBAG CONTROL SWITCH, INSTRUMENT PANEL, ETC HAS ALSO STARTED TO CRACK AND THE COMPONENTS ARE BEGINNING TO DETACH FROM THE REST OF THE DASH ASSEMBLY. THE MAIN CONCERN THAT WE HAVE RECENTLY NOTICED IS HOW THE PASSENGER AIR-BAG COVER SNAPS ONTO THE CRACKING DASHBOARD PLASTIC, IF THE AIR-BAG WERE TO DEPLOY SHARP PLASTIC SHARDS WOULD BE SENT TOWARDS THE PASSENGER WITH THE AIRBAG. WE HAVE FILED MULTIPLE COMPLAINTS WITH OUR LOCAL DODGE DEALER AND THE DODGE CORPORATION DIRECTLY AND THEY SIMPLY TELL US THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY AND THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO AND OFFER FOR US TO PAY FOR THE DASHBOARD TO BE REPLACED. WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THE MISTAKE OF THE COMPANY DUE TO THEM USING DEFECTIVE PLASTIC TO MOLD THE DASHBOARD ASSEMBLY. *JS

I AM AFRAID THAT THE AIRBAGS WILL BE ACTIVATED OR THE DASH WILL FALL TO MY LAP WHILE DRIVING . *TR

Summary of Complaint

WHILE WARMING MY TRUCK UP ON A COLD MORNING I TURNED ON THE WINDSHIELD DEFROST ONCE THE TRUCK WAS WARM. I HEARD CRACKING AND POPPING. WHEN I TURNED THE DEFROST FAN OFF I NOTICED THE DASH HAD CRACKED INTO APPROX 24 PIECES CAUSING THE DASH TO FALL ONTO THE WIRES. WHEN I CONTACTED DODGE I WAS TOLD THAT THEY WERE AWARE OF THE ISSUE HOWEVER THERE HAD BEEN NO RECALL BUT THEY COULD REPLACE THE DASH FOR $900. I LOOKED AT MOLDED DASH OVERLAYS TO REPAIR THE PROBLEM BUT THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO ADHERE IT TO. *TR
