CAR WOULD START AND RUN FOR A BOUT 3SEC THE ETC LIGHT AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WOULD COME ON. SOMETIMES IT WOULD START RIGHT BACK UP OTHER TIMES IT TOOK MULTIPLE STARTS TO STAY RUNNING...SOMETIMES IT DIDNT DO IT AT ALL AND WOULD RUN AND START FINE FOR WEEKS. TOOK THE CAR TO AN INDEPENDENT SHOP. THEY COULDNT GET ANY CODES OFF THE CAR AND COULDNT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM. CAR WAS REPAIRED WITH NEW SPARK PLUGS, NEW AIR FILTER, AND A THROTTLE BODY CLEANING. PROBLEM PERSISTED THE SAME DAY DAY IT WAS "FIXED". DROVE THE CAR FOR A ABOUT 2-3WEEKS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM INTERMITTENTLY THEN WHILE DRIVING ABOUT 40MPH THE CAR LOST RPMS ALTHOUGH THE PEDDLE WAS BEING PRESSED AND CAR EVENTUALLY STALLED AND SHUT OFF LEAVING THE ABS AND POWER STEARING INOP SO THE CAR WAS DIFFICULT TO TURN AND STOP AND ALMOST RESULTED IN AN ACCIDENT. THE CAR WAS MOVED TO A PARKING LOT AND LEFT OFF FOR ABOUT 10MINS. TRIED STARTING IT BUT IT WOULD START AND STALL AND IDLE ROUGH BEFORE IT STALLED OUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WITH THE ETC LIGHT CAME WERE ON. TOOK ABOUT 10MINS AND ABOUT 7 TRIES TO GET THE CAR RUNNING AND THE CAR WAS DROPPED OFF AT A REPAIR SHOP. LOOKS LIKE A COMMON PROBLEM WITHIN THE THROTTLE BODY WITH THE THROTTLE POSITIONS SENSOR WITH 2008-2010 MODEL. THIS NEEDS TO BE RECALLED!!!

CAR WAS HAVING TROUBLE STARTING BUT WOULD ALWAYS GO, THEN ONE DAY NEEDED TO HAVE IT JUMPED SINCE BATTERY DIED. ASSUMED IT NEEDED A NEW BATTERY. NEXT DAY DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN CAR STARTED ACCELERATING SLUGGISHLY WAS STRUGGLING TO REACH 60MPH AND RPMS WERE ABOUT 7-800 HIGHER THAN WHEN NORMALLY AT THAT SPEED. CALLED LOCAL DODGE DEALERSHIP TO SCHEDULE REPAIR AND THE SERVICE TECH STATED THAT THEY HAD NUMEROUS PROBLEMS WITH THROTTLE BODY. AFTER CHECKING THIS WEBSITES COMPLAINTS AND RECALLS SECTION I SEE DOZENS OF SIMILAR COMPLAINTS WHERE THE THROTTLE BODY WAS THE CORE ISSUE. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL SINCE FAILURES ARE NEARLY IDENTICAL WITH THIS MODEL.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

3/18/2014 - ROCKHOLDS, KY
THE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE LIGHT CAME ON AND THE CAR WOULD NOT GO OVER 15 MILES PER HOUR. I PULLED OVER, TURNED THE CAR OFF AND IT RESTARTED. THE LIGHT EVENTUALLY WENT OFF AND KEPT COMING BACK ON WITH THE CAR NOT BEING ABLE TO ACCELERATE OVER 15 MPH. I TOOK IT TO THE DODGE DEALERSHIP TODAY AND THEY STATED THAT THE THROTTLE BODY NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. THE COST OF THE PART ALONE IS $257.00 WHICH IS ON BACK ORDER. THERE ARE OVER 1200 ON BACK ORDER AT THIS TIME. THEY ALSO CHECKED TO SEE IF THIS PART WOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE 100,000 MILE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY WHICH IT IS NOT. THIS IS PART OF THE POWERTRAIN AND SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE WARRANTY THROUGH DODGE. THERE SHOULD ALSO BE A RECALL ON THIS PART. EVIDENTLY THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM SINCE THERE ARE 1200 ON BACK ORDER.
