SEAT BELTS

1/4/2018 - MCDONOUGH, GA
I WAS FORCED TO PAY $589.96 TO HAVE THE SEAT BELT LATCHES REPLACED BECAUSE EITHER OF THE FRONT SEAT BELTS WOULD FASTEN. THE VEHICLE IS A 2011 CHARGER R/T. THERE WAS A RECALL ON THIS PARTICULAR MODEL RELATED TO THE SEAT BELTS. I HAVE OWNED OTHER VEHICLES WELL BEYOND 10 YEARS AND NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE SEAT BELTS. THIS IS A MANUFACTURERS PROBLEM AND I SHOULD BE REIMBURSED. WORK WAS COMPLETED AT A DODGE DEALERSHIP. IN ADDITION, I HAD TO GET A RENTAL FOR FOUR DAYS, FOR THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE
