was going down the interstate doing approximately 65-70mph when the truck starts shaking and then looses power. within one to two miles it will go back to normal. this problem has occurred at least 7 times within the last month and half. the truck has 39,000 miles on it. took it to the dealer and they said there were no error codes recorded and there is nothing they can do. this is a very dangerous situation on the interstate because the last time it happened a semi was running at 70mph behind me when the truck started shaking and loosing power and he had to slam on his brakes because of my reduced speed. i almost got run over by the semi. *tr

i was backing out of my garage on my way to a job interview, when i realized i forgot something . i drove back in the garage, put the shifter in park and i stepped out of the truck. no sooner had i gotten around the truck door when the truck just started backing up by itself. i attempted to jump back in to stop it because i did not want the truck to hit somebody . but the momentum was to quick and the door slammed against me hitting the left side of my body,both my knees were knocked together,causing bruising and some swelling. i also had a small cut on my right index finger when the door hit me,it pushed my arm back and my finger hit my front teeth. i have found out that there is a recall for this very same problem(park-to-reverse). this is the first time since i've had the vehicle in my possession that this has happened. i called a dodge dealership in b.r. and they told me this vin number was not included in the recall. the truck was bought used so i do not know if the previous owner had a problem with the park-to-reverse. since the accident, i have not been able to work and have been suffering with a lot of back, leg, and knee pain. *tr
