the truck has continually had an intermitten problem with a resistence sensation, as if thy parking brake was on. i thought at the time it was an engine problem because of excessive raw fuel smell at the tailpipe. dealer shop found nothing wrong at 3,218 miles (12/01/05). at 18,000 miles (5/2/05) there was a complete brake faliure, lose of brake pressure. brake light came on and i believe the anti-lock braking sysetem froze and shorted out, because the unit was humming very loud and was getting very hot after the key was removed.i called on the evening of 5/3/05 and asked to have the defective part given to me. they said they would.

i currenty own a 2003 dodge durango, which i purchased new in nov 2003. this vehicle has been trouble from day 1. i've had the brakes replace 3 times, due to pulsating and pulling from the front end. it has been in the shop twice for clicking & popping noises coming from the front end which dealer claimed on both occassions they could not find. dealer keeps stating normal wear and tear, when it comes to brakes which i don't comprehend since i've owned new veh before and have never had to replace the brakes 3 times within a year. i've paid for 2 high speed wheel balances, and the dealer had the nerve to threaten me with the fact that if vehicle was returned again for brakes i would have to pay. also recently the windshield wipers malfunctioned and woud not come on or shut off on command. ofcourse at the time i needed them to visually see the road since it was raining. i clicked on my right signal in order to get off the road once i saw the malfunction occuring only to have the windhshield wipers make an attempt to start working. i've kept a log of every repair shop visit and lack of repair finding based on dealer ends. chrsyler needs to recall this vehicle i've never owned a vehicle with so many problems.

going down a slight grade and front left brake locked up slightly pulling me to the left, with nowhere to pull off i had to go a mile or more to get stopped, the rotor was very hot and had to wait close to an hour before they broke off, changed brakes sanded rotors at angle and almost did it again. apparently on auto beef, there are 15 other complaints on this same thing. i know it sucks but dodge needs to suck this one up and not lose their loyalty to their customers. thank you. *tr

the abs valve on the driver side is closing causing brakes to grab while driving. several mechanics with diagnostic equipment agree this should not be happening and recommended i check to see if it was recalled. it is, but not for my year and model. mechanics also noted that the dashlight should have indicated a problem and did not, nor were their machines able to detect the exact problem. *tr

i purchased a 2006 dodge charger brand new in march 2006. ever since then there has been problems. i have taken the car to the local dodge dealership where the car was purchased. i had been experiencing problems with the brakes not stopping and squeaking and the fact that i could be accelerating up to about 20-30mph and the car would not go any further. the car is showing signs of transmission problems. these problems lead me to the dealership which was where the car was purchased. the service department said i needed brake pads and nothing else was wrong, which i got brake pads from a different business. the car still continues to do the same thing with the problems with the transmission and the brakes. i see there was no results with going to the dealer so i contacted the corporate chrysler customer assistance # and they advised me to take the car back for a diagnosis, i advised them that i previously done that and there was nothing found. they told me there was nothing they could do because the dealer would need to recognize the problem. *tr

i purchased a 2007 dodge caliber august 2006. at approximately 43k miles june 2008, two warning lights triggered: esp bass and traction control. upon contacting the dealer, david dodge, and delivering my vehicle for inspection, i was informed that the rear braking system was the problem and it must be replaced; of course, at my expense of $258. again, july 22, 2008 these two lights triggered. this action prompted me to pursue the nhtsa website in search of recall. surprisingly, there were two recalls for this particular vehicle. amazingly, the first referenced the rear braking system. i have received no notification from dodge chrysler or the dealer. all i know is that i had to pay out of my pocket for the rear braking system that was for the most part on the recall list. *tr

the brake light on my truck had come on. i had taken the truck into the dealership to investigate the cause. this week while hauling a trailer behind the truck, the whole break caliper fell off of the truck. the bolts had not broken, but were simply gone. i had no brakes at all, almost causing a wreck. the dealership and chrysler were both contacted regarding the problem. the response was that brakes are not covered past 18,000 miles. the issue with the truck is not due to normal wear and tear. the brake shoes are in good condition. the brake mechanism simple fell off of the truck. this also was explained and the company said that it would not be covered under warranty. *tr

two years ago i purchased a 1999 dodge dakota 4wd pick up truck with approx. 63k miles. at 68,500 miles i replaced the brake rotors, pads and calipers. the caliper bolts pulled out of the spindle on each wheel and allowed the caliper to drop down onto the rotor causing the brakes to pull to the left side and overheat. when i removed the calipers the bolts were removable by hand and the threading in the spindle was rusted out and would not hold new caliper bolts. i contacted two dodge dealers (parts dept) and they stated they knew of no problems with the spindles. i checked on the internet and it seems that there has been an ongoing problem with the bolts pulling out of the spindles on this model of dakota's and durango's. this is clear cut safety problem that should be the responsibility of dodge and the nhtsa should be forcing them to make the repair or at least provide the parts for a solution. please note that the left front wheel did begin to overheat and actually began to catch on fire which required me to stop the vehicle and allow it to cool down and temporarily adjust the caliper in order to get home. *tr

the brakes drag very badly on this car, presumably due to some failure of the anti lock braking system. this brakes are badly overheated all the time, which is a safety defect, and, even with disc brakes can cause failure. the master brain for the brake system is located where it's guaranteed to be splashed by water and where any leakage from the transmission or engine is gong to foul the connections. *tr

i have a 2006 dodge ram 1500 with aprox. 54,000. the rotor and brakes went out on the left side only, when i took it to the dealership they stated my caliper was bad, thus causing the rotor and brakes, the caliper is covered by warranty not the rotor & brakes, a check shows the abs module was recalled on 2006 dodge rams, my vin is in the range for the recall, but mine is not in the recall (according to them), however they have no explanation of why so much damage at so little miles. a review of complaints shows several issues with rotor, pads & calipers on these vehicles all with low mileage. *tr

got my truck feb.14,2000 and in 2001 i had to start replacing front driver side brakes. i did this approximately 2 times a year. it always seemed to be the ones on drivers front wore out others where fine. on oct.12,2004 a rainy night going home the truck started to shimmy when i used brakes. when i was going to turn right the brakes locked up on front and threw truck into embankment now wife messed up her neck due to impact. i did not file report cause no one else was at fault. the problem became more frequent. i continued replacing pads until recently. on july 28,2008 i changed everything except brake boost and master cylinder. the shimmying is back after 3 months. the vehicle pulls when i use the brakes and will throw you into other lane or off the road. i have had several close calls with other vehicles on the road through the years as i tried to repair the trouble. i have not received any recalls on this problem, but am tired of replacing pads. i have not fixed body damage from 2004 till i get this problem fixed. i have had others tell me of similar problems with their dodge trucks. what can be done to fix this? *tr

the abs sensor wire was damaged by contact with the right wheel. this caused the abs system to believe that the wheel was not turning and engaged the abs system making it impossible to engage the brakes. speed was approximately 10 mph. this resulted in having to quickly engage the 2001 ram 2500 into park. the truck crashed into the my garage door. if this happened in a traffic situation the results could have been very bad. if one of my children had been in the driveway this problem would have probably received more attention. this wire should not ever be able to come in contact with the wheel and the route is poorly planned. *tr
