I've been waiting since the recall was first announced. Make several calls to local dealers and coperate offices. I've still have not heard back from anyone in reference to this matter. Unable to use my truck on a daily basis due to fear of a incident.

Received a recall notification September 2015. Local Dodge dealer said we will have to wait until spring 2016 to have airbag defect repaired since parts are not available. We are #300 on waiting list for the repair. 6 month wait is not a timely resolution to a safety concern.

I received a notice of recall on the air bag inflator months ago. This notice also advised that no parts are currently available and I would be notified when available. Yesterday, having heard nothing, I called the dealer and they advised they would put me on a list and I might get a call in ~ 4 months when parts arrive. NHTSA keeps telling me I am in danger but the car manufacturer doesn't seem to want to respond with any urgency. How do we speed this up?

Both left and right tie rods failed at 3 years old and 4 years old and we replaced them out of pocket. All 4 O2 sensors failed at 5 years old but dealer failed to diagnose this correctly while the truck was still under warranty and we had to replace these and the PCM, which burnt out because of the defective O2 sensors, after the truck was not under warranty any more. The airbags are defective and Chrysler does not have the parts to fix it and we can't sell the vehicle as it is. Chrysler states it is not part of the buyback and now we are stuck with an unsafe vehicle that we can't sell.

I was just notified for a problem with my air bag. I had another recall about my gas filler tube, repaired by Dodge. I was not notified about any of the front suspension recalls or problems with the wheel bearing. This part failed about two years ago and I had it replaced but never received a recall. I still have the original wheel bearing part that was given me at replacement. What is going on" is my front end going to fail while my family is driving it" I only have 89,000 miles on my truck. I would like an answer.
