STEERING

2/5/2016 - BOLIVAR, OH
WE HAVE A 2010 DODGE CARAVAN THAT WAS BUILT IN JUNE OF 2010. IT HAS 39,711 MILES ON IT AND THREE TIMES THIS WEEK, 02/03&04/2016, THE ENGINE SHUT OFF INADVERTENTLY WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING IT AT SPEEDS UP TO 40 MPH. THE POWER STEERING AND POWER BRAKES DID NOT WORK AND SHE LET IT COAST TOP A STOP, WHILE BREAKING, PULLING OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. THIS WAS ON A STATE ROUTE SHE PUT IT IN PARK AND THE CAR STARTED ALL THREE TIMES. TWO OF THESE INCIDENTS HAPPENED WHILE OUR 2 MIDDLE SCHOOL CHILDREN WERE IN THE CAR. I CALLED THE CHRYSLER COMPLAINT BUREAU AND THEY CHECKED MY VIN NUMBER AND TOLD ME MY VEHICLE WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THEIR RECENT RECALL INVOLVING THEIR WIN IGNITION KEY FOB PROBLEMS EVEN THOUGH OUR VEHICLE IS EXPERIENCING THE SAME ENGINE SHUT DOWN AS IN THEIR RECALL. I HAD THE CAR CHECKED WITH A COMPUTER AND THERE ARE NO CODE PROBLEMS WITH THE VEHICLE. THE DEALER I WENT TO TOLD ME OUR VEHICLE WAS MANUFACTURED 6 DAYS OUT OF THE JUNE 17TH. 2010 RECALL DATE. ON CHECKING MY STICKER ON THE DRIVER DOOR, IT ONLY GIVES 06/2010 AS A MFG DATE. IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY FOR MY WIFE AND CHILDREN IT WILL BE COSTING ME JUST OVER $600.00 TO HAVE THIS FIXED WITH THE SAME PARTS AS IN THE RECALL. ITS HARD FOR ME TO BELIEVE THAT BACK IN 2010 AS CHRYSLER WAS USING THESE DEFECTIVE PARTS THAT AFTER JUNE THEY QUIT USING THEM SINCE THE RECALL DIDN'T TAKE EFFECT TILL JUNE 26, 2014.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

2/4/2016 - TURNERSVILLE, NJ
OCTOBER 2014. THE TIPM MALFUNCTIONED CAUSING AN ELECTRICAL FIRE THAT MELTED THE FUSE BOX AND ALL OF THE WIRE HARNESSES. THE ENTIRE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM HAD TO BE REPLACED AND COST $6,000 OUT OF POCKET. THE HORN, RADIO, LOSS OF LIGHTS, AND WIPER FLUID ACTIVATED CAUSING ME TO BE UNABLE TO SEE AT 50MPH. THEN I LOST ALL POWER AS SMOKE CAME INTO THE VEHICLE. I PUT THE VAN IN NEUTRAL AND TURNED OFF THE IGNITION KEY AND COASTED TO A SAFE AREA. I WAS UNABLE TO GET INTO MY WHEELCHAIR FROM THE DRIVERS SEAT AND WAS FORCED TO EXIT THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR. I HAVE A WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE VAN WITH A FOLDING RAMP OUT OF PASSENGER SLIDING DOOR. MY DRIVERS SEAT IS A 6 WAY POWER SEAT THE SLIDES BACK AND TURNS. I TRANSFER FROM MY WHEELCHAIR TO THE DRIVERS SEAT. LUCKILY I HAD SOMEONE WITH ME WHO COULD GET MY WHEELCHAIR AND BRING IT TO THE DRIVERS SIDE DOOR SO I COULD GET OUT OF THE VAN. WE WERE EVEN LUCKIER THAT THE VAN DIDN'T BURST INTO FLAMES. WOODBURY DODGE OF NJ REFUSED TO WORK ON MY VAN MADE FALSE STATEMENTS, AND HAD ME TAKE IT ELSEWHERE. THE SAME ISSUE HAPPENED AGAIN ON 1/19/16 - SEE THAT POST
