have had an ongoing problem with hesitation upon acceleration esp. uphill. dealer finally (after warranty was up and we have had it in for the same problem at least three times now within the warranty period) found that there was an airleak some where. also performed a tune up. straps on back of console are both broke, scratch legs when sitting in back seat. ran out of gas twice on 1/8 of a tank, then ran out at 1/4 tank. they replace the "sending unit"? at a cost of 170.00 approx. (no longer under warranty by 3000 miles)

when parking on a steep incline two weeks ago, i noticed the smell of gas. i looked at the gas tank and saw significant leakage. i took the vehicle to the chrysler dealer where i have my service done. i was told by bob leland that the cause of the lead was the rollover valve on top of the tank, and that the only remedy was a complete gas tank replacement at a cost of $809, plus tax. he said there is another rollover valve on this vehicle that was subject to a recall, but that this is a different rollover valve. i contacted two persons at daimler-chrysler customer service (using the number that bob leland gave me). both person, ryan and jule at 800 992 1997 indicated that the part was not subject to recall, was not under warranty, and therefore they would not pay for repair--or contribute to the expense of repair. i was told by bob leland that there was no good reason for the rollover valve to crack, i.e. there was no sign of any trauma to vehicle or any indications of an accident. i had the vehicle inspected by renton chrysler before i purchased it from the orignal owner, and they confirmed that it had never been in a wreck. i have had no wrecks since owning the vehicle. i took the vehicle to a goodyear service center in town (new concepts auto at 509.747.2164). they pulled up the technical service bulletin, showing numerous problems with the fuel tank, rollover valve, and fuel lines. they were unsure whether the tsb referred specifically to the top valve. because they had a lower estimate to repair ($720 including tax), i gave them the go ahead to repair today. i cannot drive the van with a fuel leak, especially with my infant and toddler iusing car seats. this is a serious hazard, and i believe that chrysler should pay for the repair. i have instructed the goodyear shop to inspect for any trauma to the tank and car, and i am sure they will find none. i will also have them keep the tank so that it can be inspected asap. leland aware of 2 similar cases.

Location:
Milpitas, CA

dodge manufactured my vehicle with a 20 gallon tank, though it was built for the spec of a 22 gallon tank and and all the electronics were set to a 22 gallon tank. when i noticed the erroneous output from the computer i asked my dealer to investigate. this is when they discovered that i had a 20 gallon tank and that my model would not accept a 22 gallon tank. they also mentioned that they had others on their lot at the time with the same problem which dodge has printed new window stickers for since then. the only thing they could do is adjust the computer to be correct. my complaint revolves around the trucks that were sold with this condition, i believe a tsb should be issued to correct the computers to 20 gallon tanks and to notify the owners of the potential problem. since bringing this issue to dodges attention, they have been very evasive in their response when i asked what they are going to do for all the owners affected by this. i believe it poses a potential safety problem in that if an owner relies on the computer, they could run out of gas at an inoppurtune time. like in the middle of a freeway.*ak

i have a problem with the gas tank on my full size van. after coming to a stop a thud can be felt coming from under the van. it only happens when the fuel level reaches 3/4 to 1/2. the dealer told me there are no baffles in the tank and replacing the tank may not cure the problem. i am concerned that this may become worse.
