STEERING

3/26/2015 - BARDSTOWN, KY
MY STEERING STARTED TO VIBRATE EXCESSIVELY AND THEN THE BRAKES STARTED TO GET HOT, IT SOUNDED AS IF I WAS RUNNING OVER THE BUMPS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD THAT WARN DRIVERS THEY ARE ABOUT TO LEAVE THE ROAD; HOWEVER, I WAS NO WHERE CLOSE TO THEM. THEY EVENTUALLY STUCK AND BEGAN TO SMOKE. I STOPPED THE CAR AND LEFT IT IN A PARKING LOT SO THAT IT WOULD NOT BURN TO THE GROUND IF I DECIDED TO DRIVE IT. BOTH DRIVER AND PASSENGER SIDE ROTOR AND CALIBER WERE CHANGED AND I AM STILL HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE BRAKES STICKING.

3/23/2015 - FARMINGTON HILLS, MI
AFTER DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 10 - 20 MILES, I SHUT THE VEHICLE OFF AND WHEN I WENT BACK TO START IT ABOUT 1 HOUR LATER, IT WOULD NOT START. THERE WAS A CLICK AND NOTHING. AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS AND MAYBE 5 MINUTES LATER, THE VEHICLE STARTED. I HAD NO FURTHER ISSUES UNTIL MARCH 17, 2015 WHEN I WENT TO START MY VEHICLE AND AGAIN NOTHING HAPPENED. THINKING IT WAS A BATTERY, I HAD IT CHECKED OUT AND WAS TOLD AT THAT TIME THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON 2010 JOURNEY IGNITION SWITCHES. THE RECALL STATES THAT IT IS ON VEHICLES THAT WERE BUILT PRIOR TO JUNE 2010. EVEN THOUGH MY VEHICLE WAS BUILT IN MAY 2010, IT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL. I DON'T THINK I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY $700 OUT OF POCKET TO FIX AN OBVIOUS DEFECTIVE PART. PLEASE, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY MY VEHICLE WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL.

UNKNOWN OR OTHER

3/19/2015 - MACON, GA
IN JUNE OF 2013 MY CAR ALARM STARTED TO COME ON RADOMLY. FIRST WHILE CAR WAS IN PARKED POSITION. DAYS AFTER IT THEN STARTED SOUNDING WHILE DRIVING, LEAVING MY THEN 6 YEAR OLDS HESTIRICAL. IT WAS HAPPENING SO MUCH THAT WE TOOK OUT THE FUSES. IN NOV 2014, WHILE ENTERING THE INTERSTATE EXIT MY CAR SHUT OFF GOING 35MPH AROUND A DEEP CURVE. I LOST ALL CONTROL OF STEERING AND ACCELERATION, BRAKES LOCKED UP. I WAS ABLE TO FORCE STEER TO SHOULDER AND TURN CAR OFF AND BACK ON. IT RAN OK UNTIL A COUPLE WEEKS LATER IT DID IT AGAIN. COMING HOME OFF INTERSTATE W/ KIDS IN CAR, CAR SHUT OFF WHILE GOING 40 MPH IN MID CURVE! NOW BEGINNING FEB 2015, MY BATTERY GOES DEAD REPEATEDLY. I'VE HAD TO HAVE IT JUMPED OFF ALMOST EVERY MORNING FOR LAST MONTH. I TOOK IT TO AUTO STORE AND BATTERY TESTED GOOD. MARCH 2015, BATTRRY GOING DEAD AGAIN. IVE HAD ACCREDITED MECHANIC LOOK AT IT WHO TESTED EVERYTHING ALONG W/ RELAYS. HE STATED BATTERY WAS GOOD BUT BASICALLY ALARM, ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT HEARD, ITS STILL WAKING UP AND DRAIN BATTERY. HE COULDN'T GO BEYOND THIS POINT TO FIX BECAUSE HE BELIEVED IT'S SOMETHING IN COMPUTER SYSTEM? I TOOK TO DEALER AND AFTER I EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO THEM & BEEN WITHOUT A CAR FOR WEEK, THEY INSISTED IT BATTERY WAS BAD. SO WE HAVE REPLACED BATTERY, YET THEY DID NOT ADDRESS RADOM ALARM/HORN. SO I TOOK BACK SAME DAT TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE B/C IT WILL CONTINUE. THEY NOW ARE SUGGESTING TO REPLACE HORN SWITCH OF WHICH AFTER LOOKING AT OTHER CONSUMERS I DON'T THINK WILL FIX THE PROBLEM. THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE CARS COMPUTER TRIGGERING THE ALARM BUT FOR SOME REASON THEY REFUSE TO CHECK THAT. I'M NOT SURE IF IT'S JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN'T GET AS MUCH MONEY FROM RESETTING COMPUTER OR NOT. I KNOW I DON'T HAVE MONEY TO THROW AWAY ON TRAIL & ERROR. WITH ALL THE COMPLAINTS ON THIS I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW THE DEALERS/COMPANY CHRYSLER DODGE JEEP DOESN'T HAVE A SOLUTION.

I WENT TO THE STORE GOT WHAT I NEEDED CAME OUT AND THE JOURNEY WOULD NOT START. I HAD IT TOWED TO THE DODGE DEALERSHIP AND THEY TOLD ME THE TIPM WAS BAD.THEY REPLACED IT AND HAS BEEN WORKING SO FAR. IT COST 900.00 DOLLARS TO FIX WITH ONLY 37424 MILES ON IT.THE OTHER PROBLEM WAS THE BRAKES ALL HAD TO BE REPLACED WITH JUST OVER 20000 MILES ON THE CAR. THE DEALERSHIP COVERED THE FRONT BRAKES BUT WITH A DEDUCTABLE OF 100.00 DOLLARS BUT I HAD TO PAY FOR THE BACK BRAKES.
