problems with tire equipment on 2003 dodge diesel 3500 truck.*mr the vehicle was delivered to the consumer's ten pounds below the minimum pressure for a safe ride. the consumer's test drove one 3500, but didn't like the roughness of the ride. the second 3500, the vehicle in question rode much smoother. they had the vehicle serviced at the dealership to insure it was ready for a long trip. after being driven 3000 miles, the vehicle handled very bad on wet and muddy roads. consumer had the tires checked and realized it rode smooth at first because it was 10 pounds under pressure. when inflated to the proper pressure (55) it rode rough even at 40 mph or less. *ph

2005 dodge durango slt 4x4 tire pressure warning light i purchased this vehicle new with approximately 35 miles on it. we test drove the vehicle and noticed the tire pressure warning light was on. it was taken to the service department as we were in discussing financing. it was brought out to us to take home and the light was still on. it was taken back to the service department to be checked again. one hour later it was brought back out and the light was still on. we were told that we would have to exactly duplicate the speed that caused the warning light to go on and maintain that exact speed for 15 to 20 miles for the system to reset and the light to go off. mission impossible if you ask me. we now have 800 miles on the durango and the tire pressure warning light is still on. i am told by my dealer that they have checked the tires and nothing is wrong they do not know what else to do. he offered to see if they can disable the light, but then what safety am i getting for this feature? i am beginning to think this is a material defect of some sort in the technology. my sister has a 2005 ford expedition 4x4 and is experiencing the same problem. *nm

a few days after i purchased the vehicle i began hearing a tapping noise in the engine sounds like knocking (bad gas or rod). dealer claims to not hear anything. took to another dealer which heard the noise, kept the car to inspect and repair stating they thought they knew what the problem was. car wasn't fixed i complained because the second dealer admitted to speaking with the first dealer thus the car wasn't fixed. they lied to me and told me it was a federally regulated emissions system that made the car sound that way. dealer #1 offered to set up an appointment with a chrysler rep. then he called back and stated that the rep wouldn't be local for 4-6 weeks. the rep called me and basically stated that it sounded like i just didn't like the car. the dealer would not take the car back, and were rude about repairs. i never saw the rep. now the car is making a rubbing noise in the steering column and the power steering pump sounds like it is going out. i have done everything to try to replace the car but the dealers have put me off so long without repairs that i am stuck with the car. less than 6 months after i owned the car i began seeing commercials for the car only the price was more than $5,000 less than what i was charged. therefore, the bank wants an enormous amount of money in order to put me in another vehicle. the ignition rolls over several times before starting. sometimes i have to attempt starting the vehicle three times. the cd player does not work, it over heats and will burn your hand if you touch the digital display. i have had friends in the community to call me and tell me that my car sounded awful when they saw me in town. additionally i am paying 430 a month for the payment when the girl across the road is having the same problems with her new avenger yet she only pays 279 a month at 11% interest. with all of the problems and the miserable ride this car offers, i can easily compare it to a bicycle " a used bicycle" at best. *tr

2-3 times a week my car's electrical just shuts down while driving. a/c everything. it started with just the tpm gauge going off saying it was a flat but has now escalated to all the electrical in the car. i purchased this car in april 2008 even though it is an 2007 model , i have taken it about 3 times to the dealership, no one has been able to find the problem. i have had witnesses in the car when this has occurred. i am worried this could be a safety issue as it is a distraction and also i feel this could lead to the whole car shutting off. please help *tr

one days after driving from salt lake city airport to park city, utah, the dodge avenger's tire pressure warning light came on. fearing that the tire(s) were low, i stopped at a gas station and filled two tires. as soon as i put the pump on the third tire, the valve cracked off and all the air came out of the tire. i replaced the tire with the utility spare. i took the car to a tire shop, and the gentleman at the tire shop told me the valves on these cars break easily. the tire shop had to replace the valve by ordering one from the dodge dealer, and the part did not arrive for two days. the approximate cost for replacing the valve was $90. for the two days during the repair, the car could not be taken on the expressway. i kept the broken part of the valve. *tr

erratic windshield wiper performance followed by complete failure of the wipers. wipers stalled in the center of the windshield in a thunderstorm while towing a 24,000 lb trailer on interstate 65 with semi truck/trailers on 3 sides. this was the 2nd incident of wiper failure. the first failure occurred about 6 months earlier. after leaving the truck parked overnite, the wiper operation returned to normal. i took the truck to my local dodge dealer after both occurrences. they could not find any problems with the wipers after the 1st occurrence while the truck was under warranty. after the 2nd occurrence i was told that the total integrated power module (tipm)had failed and needed to be replaced and since the truck was now out of warranty that i would have to pay for the replacement. i have not yet replaced the tipm. during both wiper failures, the driving situation was very dangerous because road spray covered the windshield and severely cut down visibility. *tr phone interview update (10/01/09): owner took the vehicle in for repairs after tipm (total integrated power module )was diagnosed to be the cause of the wiper failure mode. owner states that the tipm was replaced and had multiple failure modes occur including : inoperable wipers, flipped turn signals, and inoperable cruise control. the owner took the vehicle back for repairs and the multifunction swithc was replaced. owner states no further problems.

on 12/6/06 i purchased a sears tire 185 80s13 for my 68 dodge dart and got charged for a new valve. this tire was placed in the trunk as spare. on 4/10/07 i purchased another 3 of the same tires, including valves, at sears at 95668 miles odometer reading and had the tires, including the earlier purchased spare, mounted on my car. on 11/14/07 while driving on the freeway, my left front tire blew out and i discovered that the valve was cracked at the base. the same day i paid sears to replace the valve. the odometer reading was 96382. on 7/4/09 i discovered that the right front tire lost all air while sitting in the garage with an odometer reading of 97561. an inspection of the valve revealed that it too was cracked. note that i drive this care very little and mostly in the city. the valve stems do not stick out of the wheel covers and could not have been damaged from parking. now i have to convince sears to take all wheels off and inspect and replace all valves before an accident happens. and i should not have to pay for it. why is a recall not done on these defective valves? *tr

i purchased a 2008 dodge avenger last april, brand new. i have taken care of the vehicle, the lighting on the dash is always coming on, so i am constantly taking it to the shop and they run the diagnostics and they tell me nothing is ever wrong. i had to take the it in for a warranty problem on top of all of that. then this last time i thought it was making a funny noise with the brakes. i took it in and they said i have a leak in my transmission and oil tank, of course the only thing on the dash lighting this time says "tire problem". it is such an unsafe vehicle, i ran out of gas in the middle of making a turn in an intersection and my gas light wasn't on and the gage showed i had quarter of a tank. the car has caused me nothing but problems. then to top it off, i got in my car to go home from work and it wouldn't move out of gear and i had to call a tow truck. i have only had the car a year, if i wanted problems with a car i wouldn't have bought it brand new. *tr

tire sensor light went on in our 2008 dodge caravan. went to put air in tires and found 2 of the 4 valves stems broken off towards the end of the stem. the pieces were still there being held in place by the cap. we purchased this vehicle used in june 2009. these are the tpms stems. i went online and found that this is a very common problem. why hasn't there been a recall on these type of stems? *tr

i am a mechanic of 25 years experience and feel the need to report a possible defect that exists on 2008 dodge caravans. during the last five months i have replaced three tire pressure monitor system pressure sensors. what make this problem alarming is that all three failed in the same manor. the failure occurs when the portion of the sensor called the valve stem fractures and detaches from the rest of the sensor causing a sudden loss of air pressure in the tire. i have photographs and have saved two of the sensors that have failed. i believe the problem is either a corrosion issue or a weak material used in the manufacture of the product causing it to fracture easily in ice and snow. *tr

i have a 2008 dodge caravan and just touched the tire valve stem. the top of the cap came off and the tire deflated in less than 8 seconds. i called the dealer and they said it's not covered. i asked the repair shop and they said the tire pressure monitoring sensor stems on the chrysler/dodge commonly break off and they have had many. it's a common problem. on the dodge/chrysler forums this happens many time. it ended up costing me 82 and i had to take the tire off. just by brushing the stem it cracked off is a major safety concern. with snow, or something else brushing across the stem this could lead to an instant tire deflation and los of control a lethal design!! *tr
