Not even making my first payment yet, my car has seen the shop several times and still not fixed. My brake line was "cross treaded" in the assembly line. There for I had very little brake fluid left (only 2 weeks after buying the car) and the fluid leaked on my rim which now has to be replaced but is on back order till "whenever". I was with out my new car for over a week for this problem. Then I have to get the bumper replaced due to fading which the service dept says has happened to several Durango's and PT CRUISER. This will be a 2-3 day process once Chrysler figures out how they are going to repair since they have stopped replacing. (this will be more time with out my new car.) then it was in the shop because the radiator cap was not put on correctly during assembly and it loosened. All the coolent leaked and caused the car to overheat. Last but not least the air bag light came on and they said that they have to replace the impact sensor switch...which you guessed it... is on backorder. This might or might not be the problem but they can't go any further until this is changed out. So once again I will be with out my car. I have talked to another service department and they warned me that I shouldn't be driving this car because with out the impact sensor switch, the airbags won't deploy on imact. This car has been too much trouble and not worth the hassle.this is my first Dodge and I would never recommend buying one. I understand that sometimes there are just bad apples in the bunch, but Chrysler and the dealership hasn't made efforts to fix problems. I just get the typical run around.
