Decatur, GA

the driver's side rear view mirror and the passenger side rear view mirror vibrate when a speed od 35 mph or higher is reached. it constantly vibrates from that speed on, and vibrates to the point that it is essentially useless - you cannot see in it. i've taken it to the original dealership (palmer dodge) approximately 4 times, and also to south towne dodge. each dealership has replaced the mirror and retightened all nuts, bolts, screws, etc., but the vibration will not go away. the dealerships have told us that it occurs on all trucks from 1994 to the present, and that they don't have a solution yet. please help me be able to see behind me when i drive. thanks for your time.

Dodge Stratus 1997
Chrysler Group Llc
Safety incident date:
Feb 05, 1999
Location:
Newton, IA

the moving steering shaft between the steering wheel and floor of the passenger compartment is exposed. a clamp on the steering shaft caught the floor mat and made it almost impossible to steer the car. i talked to the dealer and was told all stratus are made this way. the steering shaft needs a shield. if chrysler doesn't fix this, i may sell the car. i have had numerous other problems, including timing belts/iginition key/ head rests/body, electric mirrors,etc.. this may be the last straw. i am a mechanical engineer with 20 years experience and i have worked on cars since grade school. a design flaw like this borders on criminal!!! if there is an accident caused by this design, i would be glad to testify. it would be an open and shut case!!! i would appreciate a reply to this message if possible. *ak

the side mirrors on the dodge durango plus are 6x9 inches and are placed on the vehicle so that the driver's vision is severly impeded. cars at the left of the vehicle disappear from sight. when turning left the driver of the durango may not be able to see a car in the oncoming lane without leaning up to look out the front windshield. these mirrors are also a hazard when trying to use them to change lanes. i contacted my dealer that told me they can put a smaller mirror on the truck for two hundred dollars each! placement is as attributable to the problem as much as size.

Syracuse, NY

1. the passenger side mirror glass on this vehicle, ram 2500 series, has cracked due to the extreme cold conditions in my location. presents an even more and distorted view of the roadway. the product is inferior glass. 2. excessive pinging in the 5.9l engine. the manual states that you can use an 87 octane rated fuel in this engine. if you do even without a "load" in the vehicle the engine will constantly "ping." using a higher octane rating the pinging noise is still noticeable. also this engine from the start uses approximately 1/2 - 3/4 of a quart of oil between oil changes. very bad for a new product. 3. the same door on the 2500 series (quad cab) ram truck is used on the type of truck that i own, the extended or club cab. however, where there is weatherstripping on the quad cab door on the lower running board sides, (both doors) there is absolutely no stripping on the extended cab doors (club cab). this allows for the infiltration of dirt and water to actually come up and sit or reside on the top plate. this makes for a bad situation not only for the cleanliness of the truck on those panels but for corrosive qualities as well.
