problem #2

Avenger 4-cyl

  • 42,000 miles
When brakes are applied the front end shakes and the steering wheel shakes so bad that you have to hold it tightly with both hands to control the car. New brakes 3 times, rotors and wheels have been put on car in the past year. Nothing has fixed it. Dodge has not done anything to remedy the issue. Dodge case#20420793 and dealer has replaced and turned rotors several times nothing works.

We purchased a 2009 Dodge Avenger in April or may of last year and immediately had trouble with thumping when using brakes. Took to delearship and was told no problem found with brakes. Months later brake pedal started feeling spongy would go to floor with very little brakes. Took to dealership and told no problems found with brakes..
