I HAVE A 2001 DODGE RAM PURCHASED USED IN 2006. IT HAD 1 OR 2 SMALL CRACKS IN THE DASH AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE. I WASN'T TOO CONCERNED ABOUT THEM, BUT THEN WITHIN A YEAR OR 2 THE CRACKS MULTIPLIED. I THEN BEGAN TO HAVE ISSUES WITH LARGE PIECES OF THE DASH COMPLETELY BREAKING AND FALLING OUT. I NOW HAVE MULTIPLE GIANT HOLES IN THE DASH. I DIDN'T REALIZE THIS WAS AN ACTUAL ISSUE WITH OTHER DODGE RAMS UNTIL I SEARCHED OUT TO REPLACE IT. I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT 1000'S OF PEOPLE ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE, FAR FROM BEING LABELED "ISOLATED". THIS ISSUE SHOULD HAVE BEEN HANDLED VIA A RECALL YEARS AGO.

MY 2001 DODGE RAM 1500 HAS HAD THE DASHBOARD DISINTEGRATING SINCE 30,000 MILES AS I WAS INFORMED BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER. IT ONLY HAD CRACKS BUT SINCE I HAVE OWNED IT THE DASH HAS LITERALLY DISINTEGRATED WITH SHARP OBJECTS FLYING ABOUT THE CAB WHEN WINDOWS ARE DOWN. MY RESEARCH SUGGEST THAT CHRYSLER USED INFERIOR PRODUCTS AS A COST REDUCTION, DID NOT ACQUIRE THE PROPER MANUFACTURING TEMPERATURES WHICH RESULTS IN CRACKING, AND THE DASH IS INADEQUATELY MOUNTED CAUSING FLEXING. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.........AND NOT A COSMETIC ISSUE AS DODGE HAS HIDDEN BEHIND!! WHEN THE DASH BREAKS, SHARP OBJECTS ARE IN FLIGHT THROUGHOUT THE CAB. WHEN IT BREAKS NEAR THE AIR BAGS, I BELIEVE THEY WILL DEPLOY THEMSELVES AND THAT ALONE IS A SERIOUS EVENT WHILE DRIVING IN TRAFFIC! DODGE HAS A HISTORY ALL THE WAY BACK TO MY FIRST PURCHASE OF A BRAND NEW 1973 DODGE RAM, IGNORING WARRANTY AND MAKING EXCUSES OF WHY THINGS AREN'T THEIR FAULT! IT'S HIGH TIME THIS COMPANY ASSUMES IT'S RESPONSIBILITY ESPECIALLY AFTER TAX PAYERS BAILED THEM OUT!!!! I HAVE FOUGHT MANY BATTLES WITH THIS COMPANY CONCERNING WARRANTY ISSUES AS WELL WHERE A BRAND NEW 1976 DODGE RAM I PURCHASED SPUN THE RACES IN THE REARS AS A RESULT OF DEFECTIVE MANUFACTURING!!! THE TIME FOR MAKING EXCUSES IS OLD, IT'S TIME FOR ACTION AND ASSUMING RESPONSIBILITY FOR AN INFERIOR PRODUCT!!!

WHEELS

2/12/2013 - ST. PETER, MN
JUST PURCHASE MY 2001 DODGE RAM THE DAY BEFORE, TOOK IT FOR A DRIVE TO NEIGHBORING TOWN. WAS GOING 45 MPH AND THE ROAD WAS SOMEWHAT BUMPY, THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY AND VERY BOUNCY. THE TOWN WAS 10 MILES AWAY. ARRIVED, TURNED VEHICLE OFF AND WENT INTO MARKET FOR APPROXIMATELY 20 MINUTES. DROVE BACK HOME WITH THE SAME THING HAPPENING(VIOLENT SHAKING AND VERY, VERY BOUNCY) ALL THE WAY BACK. VERY SCARY AND DEFINITELY NOT RIGHT. STEERING WAS DIFFICULT DUE TO THE BOUNCE AND SHAKE. INTERESTINGLY MY FATHER DROVE THIS VEHICLE 300 MILES TO BRING IT TO ME THE PREVIOUS DAY WITH NO INCIDENT OF THE SHAKING OR BOUNCING. A FRIEND TOLD ME ABOUT THE "DEATH WOBBLE" AND AFTER LOOKING IT UP ON THE INTERNET, I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS ISSUE HAS NOT BEEN RESOLVED, EITHER BY A RECALL OR DODGE! NOT EVEN A CONCRETE FIX FOR THE PROBLEM? I AM A SINGLE MOTHER WITHOUT A LARGE SUM OF MONEY TO PURCHASE A VEHICLE, LET ALONE FIX MAJOR REPAIRS. I NEED A SAFE VEHICLE FOR MYSELF AND MY CHILDREN. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE BEEN SCAMMED BY THE DEALER, DODGE, THE PREVIOUS OWNER, AND THE NHTSA. THIS IS NOT AN ISOLATED PROBLEM IN MY VEHICLE!
