i have a 1998 dodge van caravan. intermittently the cruise control star to fail, some time would turn on other times would not work at all and then died then the horn quit working and then e few weeks later the air bag light came on and stayed on. few weeks after that the van at parked would start then shut off; start shut off. it does that five times and then it dies. 20 minutes later it would start just fine. a friend of mine call to my attention that there were a few recalls on this van. one of them was the clock spring and the rear sound barrier/outboard seat belts. the clock spring was replaced. the horn and the air bag light stats off but the cruise control light comes on by it self and the shuts off by it self. the cruise control still no engaging. the other problem with engine not stating, it was good for a while after the clock spring was replaced but after four weeks is doing it again along with when i am driving it wont be no function on the panel. it blacks out and no gauges activity ( speedometer,rpm :panel light: temp;gas;etc;etc. please let me know if these problems are related to any recalls. thank you so much for your time. *tr

our belts sips off during wet weather"five times we replaced the "s" belt and the tensioners,waterpump,overheating our 2nd yr of owership.now the 3rd yr of transmissions leaking,the abs light came on while driving at 35mph w/children in car ,starting to brake causing to slow way down in traffic and made a chime sound,the horn went off and it got hot fast causing the car to shut down. thank god there was room to get over. all the lights were flickering all over the dashboard. the car just leaks everywhere,water,oil,trans. something needs to be done about these cars. i cant even get mine smog because i have to keep unplugging my battery because now we have a short in the electrical system somewhere. i brought a lemon.....oh yeah! i called the dealer, they cant replace the cruise control unless the abs light stays on. i hope i don't die cause the airbags wont work because i have a electrical shortage. 2 batteries were replaced,alternator too. the clockspring wont work for my car only the cruise control so said the dealer. i would feel bad selling this car to a family ,cause what if they were killed. i couldn't deal with that. the day that happened was on my daughter 16th birthday. i had to stop everywhere all day to put water in the radiator just to keep it cool enough not to ruin her day. i hate hot days,i fear the rainy days, i cant see at night cause my headlights on the left side burned out and the covers has a glass over them. *tr

radio was replaced. intermittent failure of electrical system while driving started after replacement. the only pattern to events is they start with application of the brakes. all of the gauges gyrate post to post, the radio shuts off and restarts and the dash lights and headlights flicker. the car eventually dies and will not restart until several minutes have past. after restarting , the dash lights continue to flicker for a period of time. i have taken the van to the radio installer, two independent mechanics and a dodge dealer. no one can duplicate or fix the problem. the last time this happened my wife was on the freeway when an incident started. it created a dangerous situation as she tried to exit the freeway in rush hour traffic. she was able to exit, but the van died on the offramp and blocked traffic. after several attempts the van started and she was able to complete exiting the freeway. *tr

i own the 2005 dodge magnum. ion january 15, 2005 at approximately 5:20 p.m i was driving at a rate of 35 mph. i was about to come to a stoplight when i applied the brakes. the car did not respond and it accelerated in speed. i tried to apply emergency brakes but it sounded as if it was dragging tires.. i had to swerve in order not to hit the car in front of me. i immediately pulled over to the side of the road where i put my car in park, it then idled all the way up to the 5 mark. it steadily idled at this rate for about 5 minutes. i did not think it was going to stop so i shut the engine ff. i was very scared at that point and did not know i should continue to drive it. it felt like someone else took over my car. it was a very frightening incident. if i hadn't taken advanced drivers course i wouldn't have known what to do and could have seriously injured someone. *tr

when driving the vehicle through a left hand turn, does not matter what speed you are driving the esp/tcs indicator light comes on the dash and the anti-lock brake system engages causing loss of power and sometimes steering until you are thru the turn. i went to the dealership,they said they took the vehicle for a test drive and nothing happened. they also informed me that since "no code" showed up on the computer that there was nothing they could do about the problem. what can i do as a consumer to get this problem rectified. my vehicle has a 36,000mile warranty and i have 35,000 miles to date on the vehicle. i feel the dealership should take a little more responsibility towards my situation but they do not want to be bothered. what course of action does a consumer have under these conditions? *tr

Dodge Caliber 2007

Safety incident date:
Mar 15, 2008
Location:
Napanoch, NY

i own a 2007 dodge caliber r/t witch i purchased new. after the first 4 months of owning this vehicle. i noticed that every bump i hit, the car would sway back and forth on the road and noticed the stability was not good at all, even though i have the stability system program feature. i proceeded to take it in to the dealer and have it looked at. they assured me that it was fine. i just needed tires. i replaced all 4 tires and still had the same problem. so i brought the car in again and they then replaced the sway bar links and struts. i still have the same problem so i brought it in again and the dealer said it was fine. it is not fine! it is very dangerous and hard to control on a road that is not perfectly paved especially in rainy weather and winter months this vehicle has very bad traction and could cause an accident if unable to control, which i am trying to prevent from happening. i have spoken to other dodge caliber owners and they seem to have the same problem. now i'm experiencing water running into my car every time i turn on the ac or heat and hot water running on my foot while driving whenever i turn a corner. i would greatly appreciate if this matter is investigated and resolved. thank you *tr

2003 dodge dakota, 2wd, 5 spd manual, v6. at speeds from 15 mph and up the brake system seems to fail as the truck jumps and skids very rapidly. the first time this happened i was on the freeway, traffic came to a halt quickly, i applied the brakes and almost lost control and hit the car in front of me as this jumping and skidding occured. all parts on the truck are factory and have not been modified. i am concerned and wondering if this has anything to do with the front suspension clunking. *tr

i purchased a 2009 dodge journey. at 22,000 miles the brakes failed. the front brake pads had completely worn to the metal. the rotors where gouged terribly. the rear were ok?...the dealer stated "they must be using soft pads"????....unsafe to drive, brake failure could occur at any moment. the 19' tires do not match the very small brake assembly...and dodge's "bumper to bumper" warranty is a lie. *tr

details: uneven brake wear. rear brake calipers,do not retract evenly. caliper piston hangs up on one side. one side will be worn down all the way to metal and the pads on the opposite wheel will be barely touched. dealer says nothing is wrong. parts department says they are replacing many calipers due to this problem. stability control masks the problem so it goes undetected until the sound of metal to metal contact is heard. vehicle is inspected every 3 months and pads replaced when necessary. this is a manufacturing defect and should be covered under warranty. the dealer says after 12,000 miles they are not responsible. *tr
