Brake disc fell out of vehicle, contacted Dodge. Dodge said too bad, contacted kendall karns service manager at dealership. His comment was "this is normal for the brake disc to fall out" too bad its not our fault, but we will repair it at your cost. Dodge seams to think that brake discs just fall out of vehicles. Please be careful with your loved ones in your Dodge vehicle you might not have brakes the next time you stop. But this would be your fault not Dodge.
