VISIBILITY/WIPER

10/7/2013 - WORCESTER, MA
I WAS GOING DOWN A SIDE STREET BY MY HOUSE AND I WENT OVER A LITTLE BUMP IN THE ROAD AND SURPRISINGLY MY WINDSHIELDS WENT ON! I PULLED OVER WITH MY HUSBAND AND WE COULDN'T SHUT THEM OFF! HE LOOKED IT UP IN THE DRIVERS MANUAL TO NO AVAIL SO WE DROVE IT OVER TO OUR LOCAL GARAGE ON A BEAUTIFUL DAY WITH THE WIPERS GOING. THE GUYS SAID THE ONLY THING THEY COULD DO IS GO ON THE TOP ON THE BATTERY AND PULL THE FUSE..SO THAT'S WHAT I HAD TO DO TO USE THEM. ONCE YOU PUT THE FUSE IN, THEY DO NOT STOP. I GOT A DIAGNOSTIC, RIP OFF THERE, CHARGED WAY TO MUCH,, THEY SAID THE WIPER MOTOR HAD TO BE REPLACED..IT WAS AND NOTHING GOT FIXED..SO I WENT TO A CHRYSLER DEALERSHIP WHERE I KNEW I'D BE PAYING $$$ BUT IT HAD TO BE DONE...PAID FOR ANOTHER DIAGNOSTIC, THEY SAID IT WAS SOMETHING THAT STARTED WITH A TI? WISH I HAD THE PAPER WITH ME...SO THEY CHARGED $547 TO DO 3 HOURS OR WORK AND ONLY HALF FIXED IT..BELIEVE IT OR NOT IT IS NOW 10/2013! STILL NOT FIXED...CHRYSLER NOW SAID THEY'D HAVE TO PULL OUT THE DASHBOARD AND IT MAY COST ANOTHER $400 AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT WILL BE?! A $20 RELAY SWITCH I BET! BOY I GOT BURNED ON THIS LEMON..OH THERE'S MORE LET ME MAKE ANOTHER COMPLAINT!

MY CAR HAS BEEN CUTTING OFF WHILE DRIVING. IT HAPPENED ABOUT 5 TIMES THIS YEAR. THE MOST RECENT INCIDENT WAS A WAKE UP CALL THAT I COULD NOT IGNORE. I WAS GOING ABOUT 15MPH MAKING A LEFT TURN ON TO A BUSY STREET FROM ANOTHER BUSY STREET AND BEFORE I COULD COMPLETE THE TURN IT CUT OFF WITH CARS BEHIND ME AND TO MY LEFT AND RIGHT. I HAD NO CONTROL OVER THE CAR AND STARTED TO VEER INTO THE OCCUPIED RIGHT LANE. I HAD MY TOO YOUNG DAUGHTERS WITH ME AND IT WAS VERY SCARY. I WAS ABLE TO CUT THE CAR BACK ON IMMEDIATELY BUT THIS WAS UNSAFE. THE OTHER TIMES I WAS DRIVING STRAIGHT AND DID NOT HAVE TO USE THE WHEEL TO STEER. I HAD NO IDEA THAT IF THE CAR CUTS OFF THE STEERING GOES WITH IT. WE TOOK THE CAR TO CHRYSLER WHO COULD NOT DIAGNOSE IT, I THEN TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC WHO COULD NOT DIAGNOSE IT. HE KEPT THE CAR FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS TO SEE IF HE COULD REPLICATE THE ISSUE - HE COULDN'T. THERE WAS ANOTHER CHRYSLER 300 MY MECHANIC SAID JUST GOT DROPPED OFF WITH THE VERY SAME ISSUE. I CALLED CHRYSLER WHO SAID TO TAKE IT BACK IN AND THEY WILL WORK WITH US TO SEE WHAT THE ISSUE IS. I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW BECAUSE I AM NOT CONFIDENT IT WILL GET FIXED AND I BELIEVE THIS POSES A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE FOR THE PUBLIC. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS BECAUSE OTHERS MAY IGNORE IT AT FIRST LIKE I DID. BUT WHEN MY YOUNG GIRLS WHERE IN THE CAR AND I HAD NO CONTROL, I HAD TO TAKE ACTION.

8/9/2013 - PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL
MY VEHICLE WOULD NOT START ON 8/6/13. IT WAS TAKEN TO THE CHRYSLER DEALERSHIP ON NORTHLAKE BLVD IN LAKE PARK, FL. ON 8/9/13 I WAS TOLD THE CAR NEEDED A WIN MODULE AND IT WOULD TAKE APPPROX. TWO WEEKS TO COME IN, THAT IT WAS ON BACK ORDER. I ASKED IF IT WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE REPLACING SO MANY AND WAS TOLD NO, IT WAS BECAUSE "TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE REPLACING THEM UNNECESSARILY", I ASKED IF THEY HAD A LOANER CAR SINCE IT WAS NOT OUR FAULT THAT IT WOULD TAKE SO LONG TO GET THE PART AND WE COULD NOT AFFORD A RENTAL, THAT WE WERE A THREE CAR FAMILY DOWN TO ONLY ONE CAR. I WAS TOLD NO THEY DO NOT SUPPLY LOANER CARS OR REIMBURSEMENT ON A RENTAL CAR. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IF A PART IS TAKING THAT LONG TO GET IT MUST BE BECAUSE THEY ARE HAVING TO REPLACE SO MANY. I SEE ANOTHER COMPLAINT ON HERE FOR THE EXACT SAME THING!!! I ALSO GOOGLED IT AND THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN TO FILE A COMPLAINT IF A FRIEND HADN'T TOLD ME ABOUT THIS SO CHANCES ARE THE OTHERS THAT ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM DON'T KNOW TO FILE A COMPLAINT.
