Dodge is knowingly installing 18' spare tires and wheels on hd pickups where the vehicle actually has 20 wheels even though the customer is paying for a full size spare tire. This is dangerous, especially on a heavy duty pick up but also amount to fraud in that customers are paying for 20" wheels spare and getting an 18"

After buying this vehicle I noticed that the plastic trim around instrument cluster is cocked to the point where it is very noticeable. Is it a safety issue no but it is an appearance issue. Took it to the dealer where I purchased it on 1/21/19. They said it was fixed it's not fixed. Was told nothing can be done about it. Took it in on 3/7/19 said they adjusted the steering wheel cover. That's not what is cocked.

I'm having issue with constant weather alert pop ups on the screen in the center of the cab. This is very distracting while driving and it forces you to manually close the pop up to return to the screen. These alerts happen while the car is in motion and will happen several times during a 15 minute commute. This may seem inconsequential but it is no different then talking on the phone as it requires you to take your eyes off the road,

The fca based uconnect system with the 5 year siriusxm travel link subscription has a fatal software error with no solution. It forces persistent "weather updates", every couple of minutes, which are a full screen blocking notifications requiring the driver to physically interact with the screen to regain acess. These appear on any screen: Gps, radio, backup camera etc. And will not stop. There is no menu control to affect the problem, no ability for dealer to affect, sirius xm will not cancel under any circumstances or demands. This flaw causes terrible distraction from driving randomly and persistently and renders otherwise important systems useless.
