i have two wheels on this vehicle that kept going flat with no aparent reason. investigation revealed it was corrosion around the valve stem. this was originaly blamed on salt corrosion. this vehicle hasn't been in salt as i am a snow bird and go south for the winter. further investigation revealed savere corrosion around the safety and sealing bead. in the inner section of the wheel where it is only .150 inch thick the corrosion is .110 inch deep. i feel this is a serious defect and have replaced the two defective wheels. one of the wheels when removed contained about 1/2 cup of what appeared to be water.*ak

i have had continuous problems with air pressure loss in my tires. every tire on my vehicle has been serviced at least once and one tire has been serviced three times for the same problem. the dealer indicates that it is a problem of corrosion around the valve stem causing leak down. the dealer also indicated that they have seen this problem repeatedly on the lhs and 300m. i asked if chrysler has a fix for this problem and the dealer indicated that there is not a fix. meanwhile, my vehicle is now out of warranty and i have had to pay to have 3 valve stems replaced for a problem that will eventually reoccur. this last time almost resulted in a loss of control of the vehicle with my wife and 3 children in the car as the tire almost came off of the rim. now, after the first 3 failures i have made it a habit to reinflate my tires at every fueling and did so not less than 3 days prior to this latest failure. i am concerned that this continual inaction on the part of chrysler will result in the harm of one of my family members or someone else and this correspondence serves as notice of my concern. please contact me as soon as possible with your response.*ak

while starting to fill the front passenger tire with air, the valve stem portion of the tire monitoring system broke at a point where the tire deflated. luckily we were parked. the valve stem appears corroded. all chrysler vehicles with this type of valve stem should be recalled and a replacement (more durable) valve stem installed before the stem breaks off while driving resulting in a severe accident. *kb

sometime in the beginning of october 2011 while checking/ adjusting the air pressure in my tires the rh front valve stem snapped off just below where the valve core threads in causing a complete loss of pressure. this seemed like a fluke problem, so the stem was replaced at my own cost. today, 12/1/2011, while checking/ adjusting the air pressure again the rh rear valve stem snapped off just like the previous one did approx. 2 months ago. some fluke occurrence? not twice. once again the part was replaced at my own cost/ time so we weren't down a vehicle. in my opinion it appears that the metal valve stems for the tpms are made of a faulty grade metal, and or the valve cores were over torqued, causing a fracture/ stress crack in the stem. after doing some research on the internet this seems to be quite a problem with at least several hundred dodge/ chrysler owners. in a way this makes me feel better being it's not just me that this is happening to, but it's definitely not an isolated incident. now i still have two tires that have not had this problem yet, but when time allows i will be replacing all the valve stems with rubber ones and just dealing with the tpms idiot light being on in the dash. so much for new/ easier to use technology! this wont cause an issue with me, living in michigan because we don't have vehicle inspections, but there are several states that will fail an inspection if the tpms light is on. in closing, luckily these valve stems failed while servicing the vehicle, and not driving down the road at 55+ mph, otherwise the results might not have been the same. i've worked in quality control for the automotive manufacturing industry for 20+ years producing and inspecting tight tolerance/ safety related parts, and feel that this really needs to be looked into further. it is a definite safety concern. *tr
