I BROUGHT A 2008 DODGE AVENGER IN MARCH 2016 AND SHORTLY AFTER PURCHASING IT, THE VEHICLE STALLED WHILE I WAS DRIVING. IT DID IT SEVERAL TIMES WHILE DRIVING TRYING TO START IT AND WHILE IN REVERSE. I NOTICE THAT WHEN IM DRIVING AND I SLOW DOWN OR COMING TO A STOP IT WOULD KINDA SHAKE AND I NOTICE THAT THE RPM SIDE DROPPED BELOW 0 AND THE CAR STALLED. IF I CAN FEEL IT IN TIME I WOULD TAKE MY FOOT OF THE BRAKE AND LET IT GO UP TO 1 AND HIT THE BRAKE AGAIN AND SOMETIMES THAT WOULD HELP. I HAVE BEEN TO MECHANIC SHOPS AND BECAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WASNT ON IT WAS NOT READING ANYTHING AND IVE CONTACT THE DEALERSHIP TO SEE IF MY VEHICLE WAS RECALLED WHICH IT SHOULD BE BECAUSE I HAVE A NEW BORN AND IT STALL ON ME IN TRAFFIC ON THE FREEWAY WHILE AN 18 WHEELER WAS BEHIND ME SO YOU CAN IMAGINE MY NERVES. THIS VEHICLE IS NOT SAFE AND I CAN'T SPEND A LOT OF MONEY PAYING FOR THE NONE EXISTING PROBLEM AS I AM TOLD. BECAUSE I CANT AFFORD IT PLEASE HELP!!! THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND I DONT FEEL SAFE DRIVING MY CAR. SOMETHING IS WRONG AND I CAN'T KEEP PAYING PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING ABOUT THIS SITUATION. THIS IS SCARY, THANKS IN ADVANCE

I STARTED THE CAR TO LEAVE WORK, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. AS I WAS DRIVING I LOST THE ABILITY TO ACCELERATE ABOVE 40MPH. WHILE DRIVING 30MPH THE RPM WERE AT 4,000. I TOOK THE CAR TO MY MECHANIC. MAP SENSOR WAS REPLACE AND ALSO TRANSMISSION SELINOID. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS STILL ON, THEY WENT THROUGH ALL TROUBLE SHOOTING. PCM NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. ACCORDING TO DODGE DEALERSHIP THE PART IS ON BACK ORDER WITH NO ETA ON SHIPPING. WAS ALSO TOLD THERE ARE OVER 200 ORDERS WAITING TO BE FILLED, PEOPLE ARE WAITING 4 MONTHS TO RECEIVE THE PART. MY CAR HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP NOW FOR ALMOST 3 WEEKS. THE DEALERSHIP MY MECHANIC CALLED DIDN'T INFORM THEM OF THE BACK ORDER, WE WERE TOLD BY ANOTHER DEALERSHIP WHEN TRYING TO FIND THE PART ELSEWHERE.
