problem #1

Nov 132017


  • 20,000 miles
My car is 16 months old, leased for 3 years. Electrical malfunctions such as camera not working properly, lights not turning off inside the car, software in the car malfunctioning and creating random error messages on the screen, and turn signals burning out within the first year of the life of the car happened very often. Were reported 2-3 times to the same dealership but no record was made for us at the dealership, although mechanics showed us how to manually reset the computer ourselves, so we didn't have to keep coming back in for it. This time the car came to a dead stop a few seconds after making a left turn. Wheels locked up at about 20mph speed. The impact of the stop caused me and my two toddlers to fly forward since the seatbelts did not lock. My 3 year old was in a convertible car seat, she scoot forward a little bit, but my son was in a toddler booster and flew forward down the middle isle all the way to my front seat. All the lights in the car flashed on and off repeatedly. Car was beeping for a good 2-3 minutes straight. None of the buttons worked! doors were locked and would not open, the windows locked and would not react to the buttons. Took me a good few minutes to get the car back to functioning, and I drove it immediately down the street to the dealership where I got this car. After 2 days of the car being there, we were told that they had found nothing, replicated nothing, and that the computer recorded no codes. We contacted Dodge corporate, but were told that nothing will be done for us (besides pay the 2 days of rental car fee while they looked at our car). Dodge told us car was "functioning as designed" although they can not guarantee its safe to drive, they don't see anything wrong with it. Told us that we would have to go through this 2 more times before they can open a claim again. Refused to swap the car out, told us nothing they can do.
