vehicle started leaking fluid on the ground, i had it checked out and the result was power steering hoses leaking fluid. manufacturer is having me replace the part. old part is still on vehicle, due to i heard they had faulty hoses on their mini vans and i feel mines should be replaced at no cost to me by dealer! also steering wheel is not leather and melts. it has been replaced once by the dealer and they refuse to replace it again as it has melted again due to them saying its the cream in my hands. the seats have not melted and i also own a 1993 jeep grand cherokee with leather steering wheel that has not melted and it has 180k miles on it, so its not any cream i am using!

on july 7, 2004, i had an coming out of a parking lot when all of a sudden my steering wheel became very hard to turn and i hit a pole on the right side of my vehicle. *ak when i informed daimler chrysler of the accident, they had an investigator tow my car to mancari's chrysler jeep in crestwood, illinois on july 15, 2004 to inpect the damages. when finished, the investigator called me and told me that chrysler would contact me regarding the damages. after the investigator contacted me, i called daimler chrysler about two times a week asking for a status and would get put on hold for a long time only to be told that my file is still under review. when i asked for a manager, they would tell me no one is available. in addition, i sent emails to get to chrysler to get a response. one response was about contacting chrysler financial. i called and spoke to a mr. lambert and he gave me an extension on my car payment until september 2004. i told mr. lambert i do not feel safe in the pt cruiser due to my accident and articles that i found. the articles are explaining defects of the pt cruiser (www.theautochannel.com and www.daimlerchryslervehicleproblems.com). therefore, mr. lambert told me that he would review the lemon law to see if i can get a new car. mr. lambert has not informed me of a decision about a new car but i have obtained a copy of the lemon law statutes to protect myself. according to magnuson-moss warranty act, i have a right to demand a new vehicle if i find that my current vehicle is defective. as of now, my insurance company is paying to have my car fixed. my car is currently at mancari's chrysler auto body shop in oak lawn, illinois. mancari's has supposedly been fixing my car since the end of july 2004 and they still have my car. thanksfatimah r. muhammad

prior to receiving a recall notice on the power steering hose. on 2 separate occasions i had my oil changed the mechanic said he topped off my power steering fliud it was a little low. when i received the recall notice i arranged to have the hose repaired (serra crysler,jeep etc). i was told by the mechanic that the hose was damaged and must be replaced. the check engine light came on after diagonistic checking i was told that the power steering switch was bad and needed replacing. this cost $68.00. my question is if the powering steering assist hose,piping & connections are bad, did that contribute to the power steering switch going bad? the manager jay jordon said that one had nothing to do with the other. so i paid for the switch & labor. could someone let me know if this is a contributing factor so others will be prepared to pay the extra cost.

currently this vehicle has approx. 18,000 miles. has been to the dealer 4 times with a 5th visit coming soon. chrysler should give away complementary cots and pillows to new car customers so that they can sleep at the service departments at dealerships, especially the union shops that don't work on saturdays (and seem not to care about the vehicle in the first place). 1. broken forward engine mount, 2. loose sway bar/sway bar mounts replaced, 3. high pitched grinding noise on cold startup (maybe the starter but since it never does it at the dealership i'll never know for sure), 4. cruise control does what it wants to (set it to 55 mph, it can actually go down to 51 or up to 59 depending on the terrain, dealer says it's normal), 5. power steering (red) fluid is leaking, now there's a surprise! and finally 6. the driver's side window makes creaking noises when it's going up, i know it's not a safety issue but it is annoying. i should have forked over the extra cash for a sienna or odyssey minivan, you get what you pay for. this is my first and last chrysler. *jb

dt*: the contact stated while starting the vehicle and turning the steering wheel a loud noise was observed. there were no warning lights illuminated. after driving at no particular speed the noise was intermittently present and the steering wheel became hard to operate. the vehicle was taken to the dealership several times, however the problem could not be duplicated. when the warranty terminated the dealership determined the steering rack had to be replaced at the contact expenses. a recall letter # 04v386000 was received and the dealership performed the required replacement of the hoses, piping and fittings indicated in the letter. after a year the defect intermittently recurred with the same symptoms as before but this time the air bag warning light illuminated consistently. the dealership determined that the steering rack had to be replaced again but later advised to replace the entire steering system. the manufacturer was contacted who open a case, however a call back has not been received. the contact was very concern for the safety risk entailed in the vehicle's operation.
