Complaints involving idler pulley and brake system. On June 4, 2017, while driving on the interstate, my steering wheel locked up. I was able to pull to the side of the road and then the car started malfunctioning. It completely died and would not start. I found out from the dealership on June 5, 2017 that the issue was related to the idler pulley crumbling which in-turn caused the serpentine belt to break. On July 9, 2017, I was at a stop light on the I-10 frontage road. When the light turned green, I could not go because the brakes locked up. I had to put the car in park, turn it off and then turn it back on in order for the brakes to loosen up. To say I'm frustrated with Dodge is an understatement. During both instances, my 8-yr old daughter was in the car with me. I've only had this car for three years, it isn't paid off and I'm having these problems that could potentially be life threatening. A recall needs to happen with this vehicle!!!

My tires are leaking air and completely balled, my car has 27,000. I think since we've done all the proper maintenance they should have lasted a lot longer.

While accelerating onto freeway last night, rear tire blew out. Vehicle has oem kumho solus KH16 225/65R17 tires with just under 36K miles. The side wall shows a perfect separation (see attached image). Issue appears to be same as reason for recall of another kumho solus tire model. I have included a photo of the tire that blew out. Was able to safely pull to side of entrance ramp and replace tire with compact spare. There are an alarming amount of safety complaints on NHTSA regarding this tire...over 1/2 are for the Dodge Journey.
