My 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 has a cracked dashboard. I did not know that there are several more with the same problem.

It also does not want to change gears when you take it out of over drive. Two different techs from the same dealership have told me two different things to be wrong with it.

My 2004 Jeep has an A/C problem. Dealer did not find a problem when it was under warranty. Not til the warranty went out did they find the problem, then wanted to charge me $630.00.
