POWER TRAIN

7/6/2014 - HERCULES, CA
2 MONTHS AGO I WAS LEAVING WORK AND GOT IN MY CAR TO GO HOME. MY CAR WOULD NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK. I HAD IT TOWED TO A DEALER AND WAS CHARGED 1500 TO REPAIR!! AFTER LEARNING OF ALL THE GO RECALLS, I'VE COME ACROSS MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM. I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT SOME CARS WERE RECALLED AND SOME NOT, FOR THE EXACT SAME ISSUE! HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE? I AM REQUESTING THIS ISSUE BE INVESTIGATED AND GO TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! SOME ARE BEING TOLD IT WASN'T RECALLED DUE TO NOT BEING A SAFETY ISSUE??? HOW IS IT NOT A SAFETY ISSUE IF YOU CAN'T MOVE YOUR CAR? I COULD HAVE BEEN ANYWHERE IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION WHERE I HAD TO LEAVE. FURTHERMORE, EVEN IF IT'S NOT CONSIDERED A SAFETY ISSUE, HOW IS THE CONSUMER TO BE HELD LIABLE FOR AN OBVIOUS MANUFACTURER DEFECT?? PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS MATTER.

ENGINE

7/2/2014 - RICHMOND, VA
IN MAY 2014 I RECIEVED A LETTER FROM CHRYSLER IN REGARDS TO THE FAULTY FUEL TANK IN MY 2006 DODGE CHARGER RT. THEY WROTE TO LET ME KNOW THAT THEY ARE AWARE OF A FAULTY FUEL SHUT-OFF FLOAT IN MY GAS TANK THAT WILL CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO STALL. I CALLED TO SCHEDULE THE REPAIR AND WAS TOLD THAT CHRYSLER IS ONLY SENDING OUT ONE FUEL TANK PER DEALERSHIP PER WEEK AND THAT I WAS 7TH IN LINE TO HAVE MY WORK PERFORMED. SO THAT MEANT THAT I WOULD HAVE TO DRIVE A VEHICLE THAT WAS CONTINUALLY CUTTING OFF FOR 2 MONTHS EVEN BEFORE THEY WOULD FIX IT. I CALLED CHRYSLER TO INQUIRE WHY IT WOULD TAKE SO LONG TO FIX A PROBLEM THAT THEY KNOW IS CAUSING NUMEROUS VEHICLES TO CUT OFF AND THEY SAID THAT THE PARTS ARE ON BACKORDER. I INDICATED TO THEM THAT I HAD COME CLOSE TO HAVING NUMEROUS ACCIDENTS BECAUSE MY VEHICLE WAS STALLING IN TRAFFIC AND YET THEY DIDNT SEEM TO CARE ONE IOTA. AFTER WAITING 2 MONTHS FOR MY TIME IN LINE TO COME AROUND I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP TO SEE WHEN THE WORK WOULD BE ABLE TO BE DONE AND WAS TOLD THAT I WAS NEXT IN LINE BUT THE PART WAS STILL ON BACKORDER AND COULD NOT HAVE MY VEHICLE FIXED YET. THEY COULD NOT GIVE ME AN ESTIMATE AS TO WHEN THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO GET THE PARTS IN. I FIND IT VERY HARD TO FATHOM THAT A MAJOR AUTOMAKER SUCH AS CHRYSLER/DODGE, KNOWING ABOUT A PROBLEM WITH THEIR VEHICLES THAT ARE CAUSING THEM TO SHUT OFF IN TRAFFIC AND ARE NOT EXPEDITING THE PROCESS OF HAVING THOSE VEHICLES FIXED. I HAVE BEEN VERY LUCKY THUS FAR BY NOT HAVING A VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT DUE TO MY CAR STALLING BUT I FEAR THAT SOMEONE ELSE MAY NOT BE SO LUCKY AND THAT SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE SERIOUSLY HURT. THERE ARE NUMEROUS VEHICLES LIKE MINE ON THE ROAD WITH THE SAME PROBLEM AND ITS A SHAME THAT SOMEONE HAS TO RISK SERIOUS INJURY DUE TO CHRYSLER'S INABILITY TO DO WHATS RIGHT.
