Occasionally when putting driver side window down, all gauges go up and down, and there is a loud chimming noise. Transmission went @ 50,000 mi. Chrysler paid half at dealerships request, after car was serviced, I sent Chrysler a letter explaining all of my problems, and response was: Dealership handled the transmission problem and Chrysler was not willing to help me, and they also informed me that the dealership told them that I never reported the problem with the gauges (this is because I lived in another location and took my car to a 5 star dealership in ct, and they could not find the problem). Oil leaking, (was first informed of this when the dealership was fixing the transmission problem) there is now a puddle of oil resting in the lower part of the engine, car stalled at light, very strong fumes upon starting and while driving, and car seems to be shifting late...contacted dealership and made appt. For 8-15-02. Also, rear brakes seem to lock up and make alot of noise, front brakes squeal. Thank you.
