when i purchased this truck (jan. 99) the tow rating was 6400 lbs. recently, diamler chrysler corp. sent me a card to insert into my owners manual that says 2000# is all this vehicle will tow safely. what they don't explain is why the tow rating is decreased! it seems to me if dc is concerned with the safety aspect of this issue than this should have been discovered during their own testing before release to the consumer. this is the second model year that this truck has been in production and they just now realized there is a safety problem with there original advertised towing figure? what's wrong with this truck that dc doesn't want to tell it's loyal customers about? i haven't tried to contact the manufacturer but several people with the same model truck have and dc is being very tight lipped concerning the reduced towing issue, basically they would rather "buyback" the vehicle than say anything about the cause for the weight reduction.

you want to make all these laws, but yet you are only taking into account an average size child. what happens when you have a two year that is over 40 pounds that has to travel for 12-14 hours. ts first of all, he no longer fits into the five point harness. secondly, booster seats have no padding. i would not want to seat in one of those seats for 12-14 hours, so why should i put my child thru such pain. yes, i am worried about my childs saftey. do you know how distracting it is to drive with a screaming child because he is so miserable? thirdly, has any one done any studies on the effect of the childs neck muscles as a result of the way he has to sleep in a booster seat with his head hanging down. yes i have bought him a neck pillow. no this does not help. my son had problems with a tight muscle in his neck from birth. i had to get therapy. who is responsible is the carseat causes this condition to return???? yes, i would like someone to respond by mail to this question!!! afterall, isn't your organization concerned about saftey? and if my son's stiff muscle returns, causing his head to grow abnormally which can cause other things like brain damage, wouldn't you call this a saftey issue????????? maybe your organization hasn't looked at all the safety issues involve in carseats!!

i recently had my front-end ball joints replaced on my 1998 dodge avenger at ken nelson auto plaza in dixon, il. this problem was a recall i had done already in may of 2001. recall #967 from nhtsa. they were suppose to put newly designed lateral arm ball joints on my vehicle at that time. the "new" ball joints didn't last one year and 8 months. i was told i had to pay for the repair this time, for which i did. the cost was $312.60. i do not believe i should be paying for the material defects that were under the original recall work which failed in such a short time.

from the day i saw that 96 dodge truck rolling down the street i fell in love. i saved every way possible to purchase the big bad 1500 4x4 5.9(98)with every option avail. had everything and from week 1 had problems. front windshield cracked while driving "due to frame stress" it about 2 weeks into it. brake failure cause serious assault on guard rail, and dodge said i must have been driving to fast (@ 30 mph). they refused any warranty because "nothing can touch the wheel" and since the incident occurred after 93 days lemon laws did not apply so after (2) $900 brake jobs two weeks apart everything was fine. not to mention damage to body i paid for out of pocket. now i just go through an entire set of brakes every 6 months. but i stop until then.. i replaced the transmission at 38 k miles, note the warranty on that is 36 k miles. i have had steering linkage become so loose instantaneously (or 3 separate occasions) that it felt like i was running over my own axle, which is another $1000 each time. for the past three emissions inspections the on board computer fails so i have to take it to the dealer while they charge $200 to fix it, but will not give straight answer to what is problem. and to night as i type, i spread the grime of engine crud across my keyboard as i try to figure out why the fuel filter suddenly stopped. amazingly i have had this truck for 5 years because it has kept me too broke to buy something else. any "legal" suggestions on what can be done would be appreciated. i recognize i have spent more than $15,000 trying to keep this thing running right, and that is too much for a "late model" truck. i would love to blame a dealer but i have been to just about all of them around here and with the smiles on there faces i hear "that will be another $950 sir".. good grief. *nlm
