i have had ongoing problems with my 1996 dodge neon sport, it has been inoperable for the last year or so, due to electrical problems and stalling which i believe stem from the wiring harness. i have had the brakes replaced a few times, the a/c replaced, fuel injection acts up and the fuel gauge fluctuates, my transmission has started slipping, power steering and exhaust are leaking, numerous oil leaks, rear lights/ brake lights have not worked in over a year, driverside window broke along the extending arm inside of the door frame, trunk release is broken and my cruise control is broken! for the last 4months my car has been sitting at atlanta dodge llc! just after leaving it with their service department, i received a call saying i needed a new battery and until it was replaced for $180 they could not do a diagnostic check for any other problems!! the battery was not even a year old and worked fine when i left the car at the dealership!! but in hopes of any decent service i bought another battery from advanced auto parts $40 and took it in myself. during this visit i reminded them that my make and model car was under a recall, they informed me that it was not!! i gave them the nhtsa recall documentation and was told that it didn't apply to my car, only to the neons from the plant in new mexico!! just after thanksgiving i decided to call them to find out what has been going on. i spoke with brian the cs rep. and he informed me that the mechanics could not figure out what was wrong with my car and refused to research any further unless i agreed to spend no less than $250 towards the repairs!! it's not a coincidence that the same parts are in need of repairs as 15,000 other neons -- regardless of which plant the vehicles were assemblied, the defects lie in the placement and/or manufacturing of the faulty parts and should be covered under any relating recalls! *nm updated 12/1505. *jb

output shaft in transmission has broke twice, once when i bought the car and the whole transmission was replaced, no more than a few hundred miles later the shaft snapped again. the shop that replaced everything the first time stated that the shaft is very weak under pressure. the vehicle has been babied and taken well care of, never driven very hard, but a few times of taking off and the shaft has broken on me 2 times. this time, the car has been sitting for months because i cant afford to buy another $4000 dollar transmission, which would probably break again. its not much cheaper to install a performance output shaft, which costs around $600 for the shaft alone. *nm

we had the recall(ball joints) done on our jeep liberty back in 03. then on 10/03/06 we had it back in the shop for stiffness in the steering; we were told the ball joints were fine, and that it could be the power steering pump and rack and pinion. on 10/31/06, the ball joints broke off while driving resulting in major mechanical damage to our jeep!!! if this is a recall on the first recall, why should we feel safe driving this vehicle after we get it back? how do we know its not going to happen again? please give us some input. *nm

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

resonator failure on a 2006 dodge sprinter (winnebago view). when the resonator breaks, it poses a significant danger of an accident occurring due to the sudden and complete loss of engine power. this sudden rapid deceleration without any warning sign of any kind causes a serious and unacceptable safety hazard not only to us but also to any other person on the road. it has broken down on may 17, 2007, may 27, 2009 and august 17, 2010. repair was made by replacing the resonator. *tr

i've had 2 sets of cooper tires (cooper cs4-215/50r17 95 vput ) on my car in the past 3 years, plus 1 tire replaced in 9 months from date-of-purchase after the original tire from the 2nd set was destroyed, blown-out, from weakness in the tire. total of 9 tires in the past 3 years. each and every tire has been shown to be weak and frequently leak air; they also wear down quickly. the 1st set lasted me 47k miles before needing to be replaced. the 2nd set has been on my car a year( feb '10-mar '11), and i've had nothing but problems with them since they were installed. i have made frequent trips back to the tire retailer that installed them (blain's farm & fleet) for tire repairs. i believe these tires are too expensive ($145/tire) and are very defective. this indeed is a safety hazard, and a money waster. *tr

premature brake wear due to inadequate brake system to the weight of car. 12k miles brake calibers locked up; 14,500 miles replaced from brake pads and rotors so bad had to be replaced; 26k miles again front rotors had to be turned. now 3 months later 28k miles i need front and back brake pads and all 4 rotors turned. can't handle the car on road for excessive grabbing of brakes and steering unable to hold onto when brakes applied. dodge has had many complaints and law suits filed in nj. they just recently extended the brake warranty to 36k without no notification however, since i had already been told unwarranted and had to get brakes repaired on a weekend stranded and didn't use mopar parts they will not warranty and now telling me that the rotors are warped due to excessive heat. yes excessive heat because their is a law suit due to inadequate brakes for the weight of the vehicle. please help dodge journey owners and anyone on the road near them. unsafe conditions, it is the new toyota. how many people need to die before corp. are held accountable they know. the service mgr even acknowledge but states "he didn't design it, didn't build it or broke it". *tr

this complaint pertains to a limited supply chain problem with the 2010 dodge journey tire and wheel combination which may lead to accidents. my 2010 journey has a custom tire size of 225/55/19, which is how dodge designed it. kuhmo is the only tire mfg that supplies this tire size. in may of 2011 i had one tire failure and it took approx. 12 days to locate a tire due to a national back order. that resulted in me riding on my smaller spare tire during that time. on july 4th 2011 we had another tire fail and again there is no replacement available due to the custom tire size and kuhmo's national tire shortage. i am now riding on my spare again while my mechanic searches nationally for a tire. my recommendation is that you alert dodge/chrysler of this issue and have them find an alternate supplier of this custom tire size. *tr
