my wife bought her 1998 dodge neon in august of 2000. we recently passed 60,000 miles on the car and it began to leak oil. the leak was gradual at first and i assumed that the oil pan bolt had been put in incorrectly by the servicemen at the lube shop. however, on further review, the car was found to have a head gasket leak (approx. an $800 repair). further research has led me to find that this problem is common to all dodge vehicles using this engine. the dealer, in conjunction with dodge, has offered to cover the repair, minus a $250 deductible and a $105 fee for a coolant flush/oil change that they say is necessary when dealing with a head gasket repair. so, in review, dodge's product is faulty and they know it. nevertheless they will not assume full responsibility for a flawed design that they conceived. this practice of selling a product with known flaws, and subsequently refusing to assume responsibility is, at best, dishonest.

car blew the engine on december 13th. was told back in june i had major engine problem due to oil sludge in the engine. when i produced all my oil changes i was told i should have bought the extended warranty. chrysler offered 50/50 which still has cost me $3600+ to replace my engine. i had taken my car in when it was under warranty for "ticking noises under the hoods". they recentered the transmission and motor mounts, replaced the idler pulley, but it still existed. they claim i could not have driven my car for 3 years with this problem. the #6 bering finally blew out. very upsetting. i was driving the car when it happened.

my name is jovan j. mathews, and i am a twenty-four year old father of three who is currently receiving social security. i am writing this letter today because i am having some problems with my 1996 dodge stratus (vin# 13ej46x5tn118925). the types of problems that i am having consists of air conditioning leaks, electrical circuits that malfunction, transmission troubles, premature brake wear, head gasket problems, and poor driveability. chrysler motor corporation prides itself as representing value, quality, durability and reliability, but i cant seem to see that as a true statement with all of my current problems. i could not believe all the problems that i am having with this vehicle at one given time so i decided to research my difficulties on the internet and i found that i am not the only one with these same issues. i feel that daimlerchrysler corp should be held responsible for my repairs due to circumstances caused by shoddy parts and quality. so far i have replaced the timing belt, hydraulic tensioner, water pump, alternator, alternator belt, rotors, bake shoes, rear wheel cylinders, pcv valve, dryer, ac compressor, tires, all filters, and fluids. i am in dyer need of a exhaust manifold, windshield, struts, shocks, steering wheel, head gasket. also, i am experiencing steering wheel oscillation/vibration above 50 mph, rough ride on road with irregular surface & bottoming out on pothole, erratic idle, performance loss, overheats in traffic &/or a/c becomes inoperative, warm-up sag, hesitation & driveway die out, rear grid defogger indicator light malfunctions, inside lights work improperly, erratic, late or harsh automatic transmission shifts , frequency rumble or gear noise from front between 50 & 70 mph , musty odor and defroster fails to clear glass. as it appears i need a lot of work and being low income i need help.*ak

dear sir: my dodge intrepid engine seized up on me while driving on 5/27/04 in the middle of a busy road and someone almost hit me as my car stopped sudennly, plus cars started to pass me on a one lane road which was a dangerous situation. i took the car to my mechanic, who diagnosed a blown engine with sludge but it had a full oil pan. he said the car had full oil but the engine was not getting oil so it blew so it is a defective product. it is a dangerous product as well. i bought this car about a year ago thinking it had a life of about 10 more years and it was in great condition. i maintained the car as recommended per the owners manual and had it in for service including oil changes every 3000 miles or 3 months. i took care of this car but dodge did not take care of me by selling a car with a defective engine. i will do whatever i can to punish dodge for what they did to me and to recoup my losses. i would appreciate any help you could offer me. thanks, keith barnes. *ak
