I should have bought a bike as it would have been far more reliable.
Shortly after I bought this car, the transmission went out. Fortunately, this car was still under dealer warranty, so the four times I had to bring the vehicle to the service department, I did not have to pay for the repairs (or lack thereof).
Next, both rear axles went out (at 40,000 miles) and had to be replaced. It only took three trips to the service department to get this one fixed.
Then the resistor blew in the blower motor. After the third trip in for another resistor, the mechanics finally located an electrical short. However, this problem is currently ongoing, though the blower motor has been replaced.
Next, the front driver's side axle went out (at 45,000 miles) and had to be brought to them twice for replacement and repair.
Also, the brake lines were found to be rubbing on the tires (at 55,000 miles). More importantly, as the wheel weight came around it was actually rubbing a hole into both the left and right side of my brake lines. The dealer took no responsibility and dismissed this problem as a single occurrance.
Finally, at 56,000 miles, my air conditioner is now shutting itself off. Lucky me!
The only positive thing I can say about this car is that the seats were very comfortable.
This car was definitely not a good purchase and it has become very clear that the Chrysler Corporation does not care about customer satisfaction or problem resolution. The 800 customer service line is a joke!
I will never buy a Dodge vehicle again and will work very hard to ensure I warn others before they make the same mistake.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
