FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

7/20/2014 - LAPLACE, LA
MY 2006 DODGE CHARGER STALLS AND DIES WHEN I AM DRIVING AT LOW SPEEDS OR WHEN I STOP. THIS USUALLY OCCURS AFTER I HAVE REFUELED MY CAR. ON THE LAST OCCURRENCE MY CAR DIED IN AN INTERSECTION. THE CAR USUALLY RESTARTS AFTER I TURN THE KEY. HOWEVER, THE OTHER DAY IT TOOK SEVERAL TRIES TO RESTART IT AGAIN.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

7/19/2014 - PADUCAH, KY
JUST AN UPDATE SINCE MY FIRST COMPLAINT IN JUNE 2014. THE CAR CONTINUES TO STALL SEVERAL TIMES AFTER EVERY FILL UP. TODAY, IT DIED IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION TWICE (WITH ONCOMING TRAFFIC) AND THEN DIED A THIRD TIME WHEN I WAS PAST THE INTERSECTION BUT WITHIN THE SAME BLOCK. I WISH MY HUSBAND HAD NEVER PURCHASED THIS CAR.

ENGINE

ENGINE OVERHEATED, IMMEDIATELY SHUT OFF AND, I NOW NEED A NEW ENGINE. THERE WERE RECALLS FOR SOME OF THE ENGINE COOLING FANS IN MY CAR YEAR AND MODEL (06 DODGE CHARGER), BUT I AM BEING TOLD THAT IT DOES NOT APPLY TO ME.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

7/14/2014 - ROANOKE, VA
I WAS SITTING AT A STOP LIGHT, THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN. I PROCEEDED TO GO THROUGH THE LIGHT AND INTERSECTION (4-WAY VERY BUSY HIGHWAY) AND THE CAR STALLED LOCKING UP THE STEERING WHEEL, LIGHTING UP THE DASH. I MANAGED TO MANEUVER JUST ENOUGH TO GET TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD BEFORE SOMEONE REAR ENDED ME. THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED BUT THIS WAS ONE OF THE TIMES MY CHILD WAS WITH ME DURING A VERY HECTIC DAY AND IT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN A MAJOR CRASH. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THE FUEL CUTTING OFF OR WHATEVER IS CAUSING THE CAR TO CUT OFF AFTER FILLING UP THE CAR, IT HAPPENS EVERY TIME WE PUT GAS IN THE CAR.

ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

7/9/2014 - COMBINE, TX
I HAD A 2006 CHARGER (RECENTLY SOLD) WITH THE WELL DOCUMENTED STALLING ISSUES AFTER FILLING UP THE FUEL TANK. THE FIRST TIME THE CAR DIED I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A VERY BUSY INTERSECTION. I MANAGED TO GET THE CAR TO A NEARBY PARKING LOT AFTER 2 ADDITIONAL STALLS. I TOOK THE CAR TO A DODGE DEALER WHO COULD NOT REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM & SOLD ME A NEW GAS CAP. GAS CAP DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. FOR THE NEXT 18 MONTHS I COULD ONLY FILL THE TANK 3/4 FULL TO ENABLE ME TO USE MY CAR SAFELY. I REPLACED THE FUEL TANK AND OTHER COMPONENTS IN 2012 TO THE TUNE OF $1.8K. NOW CHRYSLER/DODGE TELLS ME THAT EVEN THOUGH MY CHARGER FITS ALL THE CRITERIA FOR THE LIFETIME WARRANTY, MY CAR IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THE WARRANTY. I WILL NOT BE REIMBURSED NOW AND POSSIBLY NOT EVER, ALL BECAUSE OF A LETTER BEHIND THE 3 DIGIT SALES CODE. NONE OF THE DOCUMENTATION I RECEIVED WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR CONTAINS THE SALES CODE SO I HAVE TO RECOURSE TO PROVE ME RIGHT AND THEM WRONG.
