two primary safety related issues and many less important quality issues have plagued this vehicle. the problems began to mount immediately after the warranty lapsed. the most critical issue has been the corrosion and subsequent failure of the brake line that supplies the pressure needed for the rear brakes to operate. this issue rendered the rear brakes on the vehicle useless. dodge corporate and two local dodge dealerships refused to address the issue, except by offering to sell a replacement brake line. the failure of the metal after only 5 years is unacceptable. the second major safety issue is that the nipples on the original fuel sending unit were made of metal and corroded through and began to spray fuel onto the exhaust system and the entire underside of the vehicle. this results is very poor mileage and a potentially fatal fuel leak. between these two safety issues and the blatant dismissal of any responsibility of the dodge corporation i think something needs to be done. i have corrected the issue on my vehicle, but what if someone was towing a large trailer with a similar vehicle and the brakes failed? people could be killed. additionally the fuel leak doesn't seem to be an issue that should ever happen. i believe that in systems as critical as fuel and brakes the material should be designed to last longer than 4 or 5 years regardless of the warranty. we have the technology to prevent this, its a simple material choice issue. the brakes and fuel lines could have easily and inexpensively been made of stainless steel or brass or any number of other non corrosive materials. *jb

i own a 2004.5 dodge cummins diesel. at 7000 miles the truck burned up 6 fuel injectors. dodge claimed it was contaminated fuel. i only buy fuel in one place so i had az dept. of weights and measures check the station. their fuel was fine. i later ($5000.00 dollars later)found that the top of the fuel tank has a recess that fills with water and has an air inlet that is lower that the water line. when driving in the rain the fuel tank will pull water in as fast as you burn fuel which in turn will burn up the injectors. dodge knows about this problem and lies to customers about the fuel being contaminated. this is costing hundreds of truck owners thousands of dollars! dodge needs to take responsibility for this problem. the sad part is that .25 cents of rubber hose will fix the problem. any help would be greatly appreciated. *jb
