SERVICE BRAKES

10/18/2014 - ISANTI, MN
WITHIN 2 DAYS OF PURCHASING THIS VEHICLE, REAR BRAKES WERE SQUEALING LIKE THEY WOULD DO IF THEY WERE DUE TO BE REPLACED. I BROUGHT IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SUPPOSEDLY INSPECTED THEM AND TOLD ME "ITS JUST RUST FROM SITTING ON THE LOT AND IT WILL CLEAR UP AFTER YOU DRIVE IT A WHILE", IT CONTINUED AND A COUPLE MONTHS FOLLOWING THE FIRST VISIT I RETURNED WITH THE VEHICLE AND TOLD THEM IT STILL WAS MAKING THE NOISE AND THEY CHECKED IT OUT AGAIN AND SAID "OH, ITS JUST DUST ON THE BRAKES AND IF YOU STEP ON YOUR BRAKES HARD AT ABOUT 40 MPH THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM". HERE WE ARE 2 YEARS LATER AND THE REAR BRAKES STILL MAKE THE SQUEALING NOISE. ABOUT JUNE/JULY OF THIS YEAR TIMEFRAME I BROUGHT MY VEHICLE IN TO THE DEALERSHIP BECAUSE I HAVE ABOUT 5 DIFFERENT SPOTS ON THE HOOD AND GRILL OF THE VEHICLE HAS THE PAINT "BLISTERING" AND RUST UNDERNEATH. THE DEALERSHIP DIDN'T CALL ME AND TELL ME WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT SO I CALLED THEM ABOUT A MONTH LATER. THE WARRANTY GUY AT THE DEALERSHIP TOLD ME THAT CHRYSLER WAS GOING TO "SEND A WHOLE NEW HOOD" WHICH I GUESS DIDN'T MAKE MUCH SENSE TO ME BUT WHATEVER. TO DATE I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM THE DEALERSHIP ANY FURTHER ON THIS MATTER AND THE VEHICLE IS NEARING THE LIMITS ON THE WARRANTY PERIOD FOR MILEAGE. THE DEALERSHIP I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH IS JOHN HIRSCH'S MOTORS IN CAMBRIDGE, MN.

EXTERIOR LIGHTING

10/17/2014 - CLOVIS, CA
I HAVE A 2012 CHRYSLER 200 TOURING V6 BOUGHT IT BRAND NEW. WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY TAKING THE OFF RAMP I ENGAGE MY BRAKES BEFORE I GET TO THE TRAFFIC LIGHT ALSO ENGAGING MY TURN SIGNAL. AS SOON AS THE TURN SIGNAL IS ENGAGED ALL MY LIGHTS FLICKER OFF AND ON THIS INCLUDED THE DASH LIGHTS, STEREO AND THE CENTER CONSOLE EVERYTHING EXCEPT MY HEADLIGHT FLICKER. ON A FEW OCCASIONS THE LIGHTS HAVE TOTALLY WENT OFF AND WOULD ONLY COME BACK ON WHEN THE TURN SIGNAL WAS DISENGAGED. I HAD TAKEN THE VEHICLE TO A MECHANIC WHO TESTED MY BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR ALSO CHECKING ALL THE FUSSES. HE WAS AT A LOSE TO EXPLAIN WHY THE CECIL WAS DOING THIS. I ALSO CONTACT THE DEALER WHO SOLD ME THE VEHICLE AND GAVE ME THE RUN AROUND STATING THAT THEY HAD NOT HEARD OF ANY OTHER VEHICLES DOING THIS AND DISMISSED MY WORRIES WITH SAYING ITS IS YOUR BATTERY AND OR ALTERNATOR.

UNKNOWN OR OTHER

8/27/2014 - LAKE HAVASU CITY , AZ
WHILE DRIVING, ATTEMPTED TURN WAS MADE GOING APPROX. 10MPH AND THE VEHICLE COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN WITHOUT WARNING LIGHTS OR ANYTHING. ONCE SHUT DOWN I AM ABLE TO RESTART BUT HAVING THIS ISSUE REMAIN IS FRUSTRATING. THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN TAKEN TO THE DEALERSHIP SEVERAL TIMES AND EACH TIME NO CODE IS FOUND AND NOTHING IS ABLE TO BE DONE. HAVING THIS ISSUE CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE AND IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ESPECIALLY SINCE I HAVE CHILDREN AND I FEAR FOR OUR SAFETY.
