The parts falling off this car are of the finest American manufacturer
2nd to the worst vehicle I have ever owned, the k-car (not by choice) still holds that top honor.
Rear ABS didn't work since new, dealer won't fix under warranty, Chrysler's 5 star customer service is deplorable.
Been involved in three rear end accidents, front brakes have been replaced three times (not under warranty, dealer maintains there is nothing wrong) as they warp after about 300 miles. The brake failures result in uneven tirewear after about 2000 miles.
The transmission started leaking at 25000 miles. Dealer still claims no problems. Have replaced the transmission at 60k, the new one now leaks.
The fuel pump has not worked since new, Dealer claims no problems.
The rear window stopped working. Dealer got the window in the up position but did not have the parts to fix. When they did, they looked at my mileage (now out of warranty) and refused to fix it under warranty. Invoice from the first repair did not have mileage on it.
The oil pump failed at 45k miles.
The manifold gaskets needed replacement at 59k.
The oil pan gasket needed replacement at 84k.
The fan still roars and running the heater in winter has always felt like sitting naked in a frozen meat locker with your right foot on fire.
Dealer has managed to fix the rattling cigarette lighter.
Chrysler customer service offered their condolences, but nothing else.
Will not drive this vehicle with passengers. I drive it as little as possible, never in the rain!
Chrysler, if you're listening...
I have swayed the decisions of a lot of people to buy other SUV's rather than any of yours. I have swayed the decisions of people buying Chrysler products in general. I will keep my children, spouse, parents, in-laws, friends, co-workers, relatives, grandchildren (when I have them), and even people on the street from buying the crud you're peddling to the American people...
Have a nice day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
