ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING: COOLING SYSTEM: FAN

10/26/2007 - DAPHNE, AL
TL CONTACT OWNS A 2007 DODGE CHARGER. ON NOVEMBER 1, 2006, THE VEHICLE WAS SERVICED FOR A BASIC OIL CHANGE AND FILTER AT 3,600 MILES. ON JANUARY 2, 2007, THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER FOR BASIC MAINTENANCE, IN WHICH THE CONTACT REQUESTED A TIRE ROTATION BECAUSE THE TIRES WERE WEARING VERY QUICKLY. HE WAS INFORMED THAT THE TIRES WERE ROTATED, BALANCED, AND THAT THE OIL WAS CHANGED. TWO MONTHS LATER, THE CONTACT NOTICED THAT THE TIRES CONTINUED TO WEAR VERY QUICKLY AND THE BRAKES WERE NOT STOPPING THE VEHICLE PROPERLY. HE WENT TO A LOCAL TIRE STORE AND WAS INFORMED THAT THE TIRES WERE PLACED ON THE VEHICLE INCORRECTLY AND THAT TWO DIFFERENT SIZED TIRES SHOULD HAVE BEEN INSTALLED. THE CONTACT RETURNED TO THE DEALER AND THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO PROVIDE NEW TIRES AND BRAKES. THEY PROVIDED THE TIRES AND NEW FRONT BRAKES, BUT NO REAR BRAKES. THE DEALER ALSO FAILED TO REPAIR A RATTLING NOISE IN THE FAN UNDER THE HOOD; HOWEVER, THEY DID NOT. CURRENTLY, THE BRAKES LOCK SOMETIMES AND THE FAN STILL MAKES A NOISE AS IF LEAVES AND STICKS ARE UNDER THE HOOD. THE CONTACT HAS A 100,000 MILE WARRANTY, BUT WAS ADVISED TO TAKE HIS VEHICLE TO ANOTHER DEALER. THE POWERTRAIN WAS UNKNOWN. THE CURRENT MILEAGE WAS 32,000 AND FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 10,044. UPDATED 01-16-08. UPDATED

SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC: ANTILOCK: CONTROL UNIT/MODULE

10/15/2007 - WESTON, FL
FAILURE OF THE ANTILOCK BRAKES AND POWER STEERING RESULTING IN AN ACCIDENT WHERE ANOTHER VEHICLE GOT HIT FROM BEHIND. THE GAUGE CLUSTER DIED UPON IMPACT. THIS WAS A RENTAL CAR FROM ENTERPRISE AND THE CUSTOMER BEFORE HAD JUST TURNED IN THE VEHICLE BECAUSE SHE WAS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE BRAKES AND STEERING. ENTERPRISE REFUSED TO DOCUMENT THE INCIDENT AS PER THAT CUSTOMER AND THEN PROCEEDED TO GIVE THE VEHICLE TO MY SON FIVE MINUTES LATER. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN RECALLED FOR ABS CONTROL MODULE SOFTWARE ISSUES THAT MAY CAUSE REAR BRAKES TO LOCK UP. CHRYSLER SAYS THAT NOT THIS VIN NUMBER.

10/4/2007 - TRABUCO CANYON, CA
I HAVE HAD MY CAR FOR 4 MONTHS NOW AND HAVE ALREADY HAD THE ROTORS CUT AND THE PADS REPLACED. THE SQUEALING WAS MORE THAN A NUISANCE AND THE ROTORS WOULD OVERHEAT AND WARP. I HAD THIS WORK DONE AT 8200 MILES. I NOW HAVE 9800 MILES AND THE PADS ARE ALREADY MAKING NOISE AND THE ROTORS OVERHEAT AFTER SEMI HARD BRAKING.

SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

9/4/2007 - BURNSVILLE, MN
I PURCHASED A 2006 DODGE CHARGER DAYTONA OVER THREE MONTHS AGO. I TOOK THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE DEALER FOR ITS FIRST OIL CHANGE. SINCE THE DAY I PURCHASED IT WITH 70 MILES ON IT, THE BRAKES HAVE SQUEALED BADLY. I TOLD THE DEALER ABOUT IT AND THEY WERE GOING TO CHECK IT OUT. THEY CALLED ME TO SAY THAT THEY COULD NOT HEAR ANY NOISE, BUT IF THERE WAS A SQUEAL IT IS TYPICAL ON ALL CHARGER DAYTONA'S. IT IS SOMETHING I JUST HAVE TO LIVE WITH. WHEN I PICKED UP THE CAR I DROVE IT 100 FEET AND APPLIED THE BRAKES. A LOUD SQUEAL CAME FROM THE BRAKES, BUT THEY STILL REFUSE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. WHY IS THIS? WHY DON'T THEY DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT?
