Unfortunately I ran into a driver whom was in front of me due to low visibility & bad brakes. My headlights are extremely dull & foggy. Also, whomever own the car before me had the brake vacuum replaced due to recall & ever since I've purchased the car there's been a brake problem. Such as needing a new master cylinder, new propositioning, new brake shoes, and wheel cylinder. I have receipts of all work completed. I have a one year old whom ride along and I'm highly concerned about his safety. I love the car but if it continues I will junk out my car and look to sue Dodge Chrysler and whomever else associated with the making of the vehicle.

There has been smoke coming from behind the multiswitch on the steering column. The smell of burnt electrical components is noticed when the headlights are on. The low beam lights eventually quit and then the high beams went out while driving. The electrical wires were jiggled now giving me low beams, and no high beams. The electrical wires connecting to the multiswitch was replaced four years before because it had burned the connection in half. Now the multiswitch has been replaced and upon replacement the connection was examined, noticing that it was melted.
