i have a long history of reporting serious major safety component problems and failures to chrysler on both of my vehicles. my vehicles have been in three accidents resulting from failed safety components. each time after the accident, the dealer was able to find the problem and correct it. however, this has never happened before the accident. in the case of the brake line failure it involves every 1195 br2500 hd pickup truck. chrysler found and corrected the problem at some point because the replacement part is designed to reduce the bends which cause the line to rub against the wheel rim on turns. i have experienced thousands of dollars in damages that were caused by chrysler. how do i get my money back?

Dodge Ram 1998

Safety incident date:
Aug 01, 2000
Location:
Sandwich, IL

the ring and pinion gear as well as both outer bearings in the rear axle failed at 50000 miles with scheduled maintainance. i had the vehicle repaired at a local driveline shop because the dealer told me that they would not cover the repair. i was told by the repair shop that they were doing as many as four dozen rear end repairs a month on dodge trucks and full size vans for the same above mentioned dealer. the only reason they are not doing them any longer is because dodge decided to start replacing the entire rear axle assembly instead. i was also told that this could have lead to a locking of the rear axle assembly while driving which could have proved fatal. *ak

mechanics all said vehicle is a danger to drive injury could result, it cannot be repaired. it has been worked on for this bucking problem about 15+ times. new shocks, clutch assbly, tires, stab shocks, drive lines, drive lines balanced, carrier bearings, rear end, entire rear axle, springs, etc., and many other stabs at the problem have been done. the rear wheels will still buck so bad the wheels come off the pavement at times. chrysler said that personal safety was not a concern, only the bottom line dollar in them buying this vehicle back. at least 2 mechanics, a service mgr. and the customer relations lady at montana dodge have said this pickup is unsafe for me to be driving. the rear end is now going out, the transmission is leaking now and it is an accident waiting to happen. chrysler said they would buy it back, penalizing me dearly on mileage even though the truck has had problems since it was new. montana dodge has told chrysler they will not work on it anymore, that it is unsafe to drive. my extended warranty is still good for another 25,000 miles or 2 more years. the "laison" paid by chrysler is who told me that safety had nothing to do with the price chrysler paid me, it was just a bottom line dollar they were concerned about. chrysler troubleshooter techs sent a vib machine to pinpoint the problem, it showed to be the output shaft of the transfer case. a used transfer case was installed, it still bucked. used parts were traded out for the entire rear axle assembly and it still bucked. this bucking is so violent, that stuff off the dash will go into the back seat area if i allow it to stay in this bucking mode. someone would 100% without doubt be injured seriously or killed if this vehicle were to remain on the highway. chrysler doesn't seem to really care and said as much through their laison. thank you very much for listening. i either sell it back to chrysler at a great money loss or drive a dangerous vehicle.
