while passing a van on 4 lane highway was hit by another van that ran stop sign and pushed front end of 1998 dodge club cab p/u into the front seat area. my vehicle was totalled resulting in injuries to myself and step son. neither air bag deployed. informed chrysler of accident and the results(injuries) and they more or less laughed at me because the insurance company had already sold my vehicle for scrap. without the vehicle they said they could do nothing for me. i'm not the only one who has had problems with air bags on this chrysler product. i informed chrysler that i had pictures of the truck but that wasn't sufficient for them. they are sorry people if ths is the way they treat customers and do business.

i have had to purchase at least 3 gas fuel pumps for my 94 dodge dakota for three years in a row. i've taken it to the dodge dealer each time an it seems to be the same problem every time. i only use one gas station when i'm not traveling and just in my neighborhood . i have used the same type of gas 1993 premium and gas station amoco since ownership of the vehicle. the dealer has been very helpful and has not charged me this time for the work. but they can't seem to find out why i'm having this problem with the vehicle. how can i find out if there is some other defective part that might be causing the problem, or find out if there is a defect with the gas fuel pumps for that vehicle. i couldn't find anything on your site.*ak

i own a 2002 dodge caravan se 3.3 liter engine. since i have had this vehicle,(bought in august 2003) i have had to buy new tires, had to have the tires rotated & balanced 4 times and because of the popping noise have to have the sway bar bushings replaced and have a new rotor and brakes replaced. the vibration due to the brakes wearing and rotors is unreal and know i am not the only person having the brake and rotor problem. there has been only 15,000 miles put on these brakes and are having to have them replaced again. something is not right and this needs to be checked into. thank you. *la

the serpentine belt falls off and the vehicle must be towed. this is even after we paid to have a bracket installed & tensioner per tsb to prevent this from reoccurring. this is the second time the belt has fallen off. chrysler should not provide a product in which the vehicle must be towed due to a design defect. chrysler should not provide a service which would lead the consumer to believe that the design defect is remedied. ( is this not fraud?) also, this failure mode causes a situation in which the vehicle must be towed - how is this not a safety issue?*ak

flat tire requiring need for use of compact spare tire. the instructions for the spare tire removal do not show a release mechanism that is critical for lowering of the spare tire. the release mechanism is required to lower a nylon fixture that secures the compact spare tire to the underside of the vehicle. because the instructions did not mention the release mechanism, and the release mechanism was not visible, i had to cut the nylon fixture (suggested by the service department of a dodge dealership i contacted), which then caused the spare tire to fall down. i was slightly injured but if someone had their head underneath the spare tire when it dropped down, they could be seriously injured. the nylon fixture is now ruined. the original design is poor and the instructions are clearly lacking in the use of the release mechanism. *jb

the brakes on my 2006 durango seem to slip at times. i have gone to stop on several occasions, and the brakes seem to take a second to kick in. i have thought before i wasn't going to stop. this is a great concern to me, especially when i have my grandchildren with me. i feel there is something wrong, and i am not safe at times in this car. it isn't everytime , but it happens too often to feel worry free. *tr

power steering on 1992 dodge 230 xplorer m.h. van. had van taken to hemet chrysler in hemet calif. and "they" determined that the steering gear box needed replacement. the service manager and service writer adamantly state there is absolutely nothing wrong with the vehicle after they stated they replaced the box....yet....the steering is exactly the same as when i had the vehicle taken to them. i have since researched several sites with much information that chrysler has known for years that dodge cars (did not mention my van) have had steering problems and those problems have caused many accidents and some deaths. the wandering and looseness and very slow to return continues plus an added problem noted when they returned the van, a screaming of the steering wheel. checked the fluid and found it continuously leaks from day one of the vehicle returned to me. the vehicle was at their shop four times total. this dealership has adamantly refused to acknowledge the steering problem and denies the destruction of the roof assembly. i would like to know if your agency has any reports such as mine concerning the dodge steering problems and in particular the dealership of hemet chrysler in hemet california. i am seeking clear information relative to the steering of all chrysler/dodge products with emphasis on the vans used for motor homes in and since 1992, thank you. *tr

i am writing to you to express my concerns and also complaints regarding daytona dodge. my husband and i purchased a 2007 dodge nitro on july 7, 2008. we brought it back the very next day, because it wasn't running correctly, and also a check engine light was on. between july 8th and january 1, 2009, that vehicle has been in the service department of daytona dodge 11 or 12 times. they have had to drop the transmission on this vehicle 3 times; they brought in a corporate representative from dodge over in orlando. he test drove the vehicle with us, and did identify that there was a problem. however, after inducting the vehicle back in for service, the problem was still not fixed. i was finally told by the service manager that daytona dodges service department has done everything they were told to do, and that the vehicle is just suppose to run that way. i find it very difficult to believe that any corporation would manufacture a vehicle to run the way this nitro does. i have done some investigating, and found that there are various problems that have been associated with the dodge nitro. the nitro i have both shudders at around 40 mph and also has a problem idling, it tries to shut off periodically whilst at a red light. i feel that this is a terrible way to treat customers. please understand that i am writing to you in the hopes that perhaps you can get someone to address the issue. *tr updated 03/06/09.*jb
