on 2/22/10 i took my dodge nitro slt in for the windshield washer recall to the dealership. every since the wiper washer (t.i.p.m) was replaced i've had the mil light come on three times, stalling and the panic alarm going off when i use the remote to unlock the car. the dealership has taken the nitro on the road to reset the mil light, intermittently the panic alarm still goes out, they're replaced the t.i.p.m on 5/19/10; suggesting that i got a bad one a day later the panic alarm went off again. the only way it stopped was to drive it. *tr

car alarm key for dodge durango malfunctioning. the past month my alarm key has failed to unlock/lock the doors, and i immediately thought to replace the battery. a well known electronics store opened the key to replace the battery and found that the bracket that holds the battery had broken off. i then had them check my spare key, and found that it also had a broken bracket. i called my local dodge dealer, where i purchased my car, and was told that it would cost over $200 to replace and reprogram one of the keys. i explained that this was a defect of their product, and they should fix it for nominal fees or for free. i was told it that they were not informed that it was a defect. i've researched the subject online, and there are a number of owners with the same problem with the bracket breaking inside the key. if i lock all the doors using the inside lock feature, and due to my alarm key not working to disarm the alarm when i open the door with the key, the alarm will sound. i then have to rush into the car and put the key into the ignition to disarm the alarm. due to it being such a nuisance when i leave each morning of the alarm sounding off, the consequences are that i leave the driver's side door unlocked, so as to not arm the alarm. there are a lot of owners with this issue, or they have paid dodge for replacement keys for a defect that i feel dodge should fix with the alarm key, and the broken bracket. either a new design of key or bracket that will work, and isn't going to break. their customers should not be responsible for the payment of $150-250 for each key replacement for a defect in their product. *tr

i bought a 2010 dodge journey and have had many issue. first the alignment has always gone towards the right and has been in the shop twice and they said it was fine. i have always had problems with the nav and computer music system. the newest and worst issue is in less than 2 weeks has stopped while i was driving. i took it in the first time and the service said they rebooted the computer and it was fine. few days later i was going 40 down the road and the car shut off again. both times the car is in drive and the key is in. it is now back in the shop and i am afraid the airbags are not going to work. i am afraid that i will be hit and injured. i have 4 year old twin boys. dodge/chrysler is not helpful at all. i am afraid to drive the car. it is back in the shop and for a car less than a year old, i feel it should work. i don't know what to do. *tr
