Safety incident date:
Mar 21, 2003
Location:
Acworth, GA

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

Waynesville, MO

while traveling down a city street in heavy mid-day traffic, my 1999 dodge ram 2500 4x4 pick-up truck stopped running. i had no warning. one second the vehicle was running fine and the next second it was dead. since it is a cummins turbo diesel equipped truck, i lost power steering and power brake assist. luckily, i was able to wrestle the steering wheel and guide the truck into a mostly empty parking lot with the vehicle's momentum. i had to apply great force to the brake pedal to bring the vehicle to a stop. my biggest concern is, if my wife had been driving instead of me, the loss of power steering and brake assist would have greatly enhanced the chance of a crash and/or personal injury. the problem which caused the engine to stop running turned out to be the inoperative bosch vp-44 injection pump. a re-manufactured pump is the only form of repair available for these vehicles. after much internet research, i have found that the vp-44 injection pump is notoriously unreliable and extremely failure-prone. i feel that daimler-chrysler should be held responsible for repairing these vehicles with a more reliable injection pump and/or refunding money spent by owners on repairing this issue. this is a very serious safety issue that the nhtsa should become involved in. *jb

at approximately 14 miles north of town on a remote stretch of mountain roadway the 2000 dodge/cummins ram 2500; with only 57,000 miles, shut down as if i had turned off the key. i know several dodge/cummins truck owners and many have had experiences with the fuel injector pumps going bad on low mileage, late model trucks. ended up having the vehicle towed. two days later put the truck on the ferry headed back to juneau. i made contact with daimler/chrysler corporation customer assistance. i described the above incident. i also stated that i was aware of the ongoing problems and numerous failures with the dodge/cummins fuel injection pumps. daimler/chrysler stated that the vehicles warranty period had expired but that the company would entertain the prospect of assisting me with the repair since the mileage was so low and acknowledge that the corporation was aware of the fuel injection pump problems. daimler/chrysler told me to get a diagnosis from a dodge dealership before they would proceed with any assistance. i promptly delivered the truck to the dealership that morning. i had to sign an agreement for a minimum of 1 hour labor at $100.00/hr. they confirmed my diagnosis of the fuel injection pump and quoted $2700.00 for the repair. i called the next morning and relayed this information to daimler/chrysler. they stated they would contact the dealership and get back in touch with me. daimler/chrysler has not made any attempt to contact me. *nm

i have a 2004 dodge ram cummins turbo diesel truck. around aug 14 2006 i had a fuel injector fail. the result is a crankcase full of fuel which exits the engine out of the overflow at the rear of the engine, this in turn causes fuel to cover the rear of the engine and underside of the truck. again last weekend sept 17th i had another failure. i believe that the combination of fuel and hot exhaust is a fire waiting to happen. the dealer other than a warranty repair denies that there is a problem but on various web sites i keep hearing about others having the same problem. i think this is a time bomb waiting to happen that could kill or severely hurt someone from a resulting fire. *nm

2004 dodge ram 2500 diesel pickup all six injectors have went out twice and chrysler has refused t do anything about it. the first time they went out the pickup naturally died and the power steering went out at 75 mph on a curve in north dakota causing a near accident . as a result when the injectors went out it filled my crankcase with fuel which poses a possible explosion factor. chryser blamed it on my chip but it happened again with out the chip leading me to believe there is an obvious design flaw that could lead to the possible death of the operator. *jb
