 In october of 2005 i was at a red light and when the light turned green i took my foot of the brake and onto the gas and the truck was dead. i had to put it in neutral and it started back up. about a week went by and i again had the vehicle and was at the grocery store and it would not start at all. we called the dealership and stated to them truck doesnt start stalls in drive. we dropped off the vehicle on 11/22/05. they had it for a day and told us that they could not find anything wrong with it it wasnt throwing and codes so there was nothing they could do. brought truck back again on 11/28/05 same problem they hooked it up to computer no codes couldnt fix anything it started fine for them, since its not ever single time you start the truck. drove truck for sometime no problems in the beginning of the year. had some more times it didnt start talked to service manager in november of 2006 stated that vehicle had been stalling and not starting again over the past month. we brought the vehicle to dealership on november 14th, 2006 and told them to keep the vehicle til they find something wrong with it. the service manager stated he would drive vehicle as if it was his own. upon entering vehicle the truck did not start for service manager. he stated it still didnt throw any codes but they would keep til they could find something wrong with it. they replaced the pcm and stated this should hopefully fix the problem. we got the vehicle back on nov 30th, 2006. friday december 1st the truck did not start for us in the morning. we contacted dealership on monday decemeber 4th and was told that they would have to keep the vehicle til it didnt start so they could connect it back to computer but thats all they can do. since we have already been inconvenieced at this point for over a year and a half now we are opting to keep the truck and contact the manufacturer with a letter of notice of final opportunity and contacted the attorney general to file complaint. *nm

 I bought my 2005 dodge ram 2500 4x4 quad cab with the cummins engine in febuary 2005since then the vehicle has been in the shop 6 times for a high pitched squiking sound from the engine, at first the belt tensiner was replaced, proglem persisted, second time the serpertine belt was replaced, still persisted, third time the water pump was replaced, problem still exists, fourth time the cam shaft was replased, no avail,fith the harmonic balace was changed but its still there, so on the six atempt the dealer gave it back to me and said we cant fix it, file for lemmon law this hasbeen a nightmear for me the manufacturer has not been cooperative and we went to arbitration and the representarive of the manufacturer admited al my complaints but wanted to dismiss the charges on a technicality that the lemmon law form was e- mailed to the wrong address which was provided by a customer service rep of dodge, as to say the problem persists, the case was extended to a final repair and now the truck is miss firering and the check engine light is on..... a new problem on a truck that only has 6000 miles.

 My 2005 dodge grand caravan would not start one evening. i called a tow truck after several attempts to start the van. the van had less than 15000 miles on it. i had it delivered to landers dodge located in southaven, ms. this was on a sunday, so i went up there on the following monday to see what was wrong with my van. i was told nothing was wrong with it, and one of the employees said they watched the van while it was driven off of the tow truck, which was not the truth. my husband helped the tow truck driver push it off the day before. they claimed it started right up, and nothing was wrong with it. so i took it home. a week later it did the same thing, so i waited ten minutes and tried to start it again. it was reluctant, but it did finally start. *ak

 2005 dodge ram 3500 st reg cab 4x2 (this make not available under vehicle information) truck jumped out of gear into reverse while in park at a gas station and hit a pole by the gas pump causing damage to the rear bumper and tailgate. it then shifted gear into drive and went forward hitting a pole by the front door of the store damaging the front bumper, hood, and air conditioner compressor. the park light now does not light up when in the park position. the truck was brought to the dealership for inspection, but was told there was nothing wrong with the truck, it was in drivable condition, and that i must file a claim with my insurance company to get the damages repaired. complaints filed with the manufacturer and other related parties. *nm
POWER TRAIN - AXLE ASSEMBLY
06/21/20059400212/31/2004
 I was driving home from work when the front right tire appeared to blowout causing the car to skid in the curb. my husband came and put the little spare on and i was to take it a dodge dealer the next morning for them to inspect the tire for abnormalities, etc. about a half block from the original blowout the car suddenly swerved into the center lane and the front end appeared to drop and i gained control of the car and got it to the right lane and the car stopped without me putting it in park. i then put it in park and got out to see what it was and found that the spare tire had broken off the axel and was pushed into the wheel well and the front end of the car was actually sitting on the ground with all the fluids draining out into the street. i heard and felt a loud crunch sound thinking someone had either hit me or i hit somebody else. unfortunately, that was not the case. i had the car towed and it will arrive at the dealership in the morning for them to assess the damage to the engine, transmission, frame and and wheel axels. i have had no other complaint with my car except for the radio/cd player which was replaced with a new player.....the radio however is still not working right. i was not hurt during either incident, but, i do believe seeing the damage to the car was some kind of defect in order to create that sort of damage. i would appreciate any help that someone may be able to offer or at least investigate the car. thank you very much for timely attention into this matter.

 Our 2005 neon srt/4 is a high performance car with a manual transmission. they made 8,000 in 2005. 5,000 cars came equipped with the t-304 manual transmission. the third gear in this transmission locked up while driving in traffic. the car revved to 8,000rpm and stalled, breaking parts. a definite safety issue. online, ( i'll include the info) out of 1,544 2005 srt/4 owners polled, 1,195 had issues with this 3rd gear. they included: it does not go into gear first try, it goes but grinds( damages clutch), it tries to kick out of gear, it grinds under wot shifting, can't shift into 3rd when wot(wide open throttle). it appears all these transmission are defective & dangerous to the public. i was a former tool engineer for gm truck steering, etc., for american axle. i asked for my old parts from the $2,200.00 repair when i picked up our car on 7/29/09. upon examining the broken /damaged parts, the forks appeared to be made of a soft brass! the northtown dodge service manager& mechanic mentioned that the replacement parts had been upgraded( the bearings and forks). when i asked if it was steel replacement parts they would not answer. i then explained to them that dodge would not spend $100,000's to upgrade parts for no reason. i got no where. when i called dodge, some idiots in india answered the phone. these are defective parts that should be recalled. my son had taken the car to transitown dodge about 3 months before to have this problem checked, and they could not find anything. *tr

 I have been locked-out of gear in my 2005 srt-4 multiple times. even with the clutch pedal is fully and properly pressed, the transmission refuses to shift and engage a gear. this has happened to me in first, second, and third gear. when it occurs, i am stuck in neutral, unable to accelerate. this has happened in traffic many times. just today i was unable to engage third gear while going down an on-ramp, so i was stuck coasting down into rapidly moving traffic. though i was eventually able to get into gear, it was quite harrowing. dodge needs to perform a recall on this transmission before it does cause someone to become seriously injured in an accident. *nm

SUSPENSION - AUTOMATIC STABILITY CONTROL (ASC)
07/19/20051
 My 18 year old son bought a new dodge srt-4 and 3 weeks later lost his life in an accident while driving this vehicle. it is a very fast and unsafe car. the car was not made well enough for such high speed that it was capable off. it should have never been made ,and especially sold to such a young person. everyone needs to be informed about this vehicle and the terrible consequences that occur when driving it the way dodge presented it to the public. our lives have been ruined due to this, and we do not want anyone else to have to go through what we did. i contacted the dodge corporation and spoke to an attorney, and asked them how many people had lost their lives in this particular vehicle, and she answered, we have no way of knowing that. i know that was not true. *ak

TIRES
06/21/20059400212/31/2004
 I was driving home from work when the front right tire appeared to blowout causing the car to skid in the curb. my husband came and put the little spare on and i was to take it a dodge dealer the next morning for them to inspect the tire for abnormalities, etc. about a half block from the original blowout the car suddenly swerved into the center lane and the front end appeared to drop and i gained control of the car and got it to the right lane and the car stopped without me putting it in park. i then put it in park and got out to see what it was and found that the spare tire had broken off the axel and was pushed into the wheel well and the front end of the car was actually sitting on the ground with all the fluids draining out into the street. i heard and felt a loud crunch sound thinking someone had either hit me or i hit somebody else. unfortunately, that was not the case. i had the car towed and it will arrive at the dealership in the morning for them to assess the damage to the engine, transmission, frame and and wheel axels. i have had no other complaint with my car except for the radio/cd player which was replaced with a new player.....the radio however is still not working right. i was not hurt during either incident, but, i do believe seeing the damage to the car was some kind of defect in order to create that sort of damage. i would appreciate any help that someone may be able to offer or at least investigate the car. thank you very much for timely attention into this matter.
TIRES - BEAD
05/25/2006118001
 My 2005 dodge neon with 11k miles was purchased exactly one year ago new by me. the car came equipped with bf goodrich g-force t/a kdw 225/45zr16 tires. in moderately heavy traffic on rt 495n in haverhill, ma this afternoon, commuting home from my business, the car started shuddering and shimmying on the right hand front side. thinking i had a flat, i pulled off at the next exit and examined the tire. while still inflated, the tire bead had separated from tire itself as if almost delaminating. there was no observable damage to the rim, tire or any foreign object penetrations. i checked the tire pressure hot and it was 38 psi, (now 34.5 psi cold), well within manufacturer's specification. had this tire deflated at highway speed, i would have likely been injured if not killed and incurred significant property damage. i believe this tire has a manufacturing defect that needs to be investigated. i have taken several digital photos of the damage that i can submit. i have attempted to contact bfg and their website was unable to process my complaint due to a server error. *nm
TIRES - VALVE
07/15/2005507/09/2005
 Wheel wells are cut to high letting water and road grime into my engine and electric. i have taken my durango back to the dealer every other week since i bought it,for steering,tv screen,valve stems,and once for i don't know, it just sat in back for one and a half hours. this last time it was for knocking in the front end. i have only had the durango for 8 weeks!!!the rack and pinion steering is out. *nm
VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL - CRUISE CONTROL
03/24/200623000312/12/2004
 When using cruise control on my 2005 dodge caravan the cruise control sometimes will not disengage by touching the brake when under full acceleration going up a hill. this is extremely dangerous, especially when a car in front hits its brake. it requires full force pressure on the brake to disengage the cruise control. *nm
