Was in an accident and the front air bag did not activate. The horn did not work. If the horn worked I could have stopped vehicle from hitting me.

I have had nothing but problems out of this car!! the car was purchased in charlotte, but I live in spartanburg, so all service and maintenance had been performed at quality Chrysler (1030 N. church St., spartanburg, SC 29303; phone: 864/596-4550). The transmission was not shifting correctly in 11/98, but they couldn't find anything wrong with it at the dealership. It would not move when put into reverse or drive. They finally found the problem in 6/98. Started having additional problems in 11/99, and they stated once again that there was not a problem. - the door panels have come off of both doors on numerous occasions. Blew a tire while driving approximately 25mph. Rim appears to have cut through side wall. - horn on right side of steering wheel does not work. This is a safety issue in that I couldn't alert a vehicle that was about to shift into my lane. I had to drive onto the shoulder of the road to avoid an accident. - I have had other problems that are not safety issues, including : spots in paint on spoiler, alarm sounding when unlocking passenger door with key, spots on back window. I am very unhappy with the quality of this car, especially since it is my very first new car.
