problem #4

Feb 262010

Ram 2500 Lariat

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,292 miles


I understand mechanical failures happen, my issue is with a company like Dartmouth Dodge and Chrysler who both provided the worst service I have ever experienced. The policy is no compensation for rental vehicle of any kind unless you buy the "extended warranty". It was a battle to get the issue covered in the first place, the repair took over 4 weeks. Communication was terrible. When the truck was finally picked up it ALMOST got me home (4 km) before needing to be towed back, for another transmission issue that was another week to repair. I was compensated $300 for this rental not the $1100 for the prior rental.

Ram 2500 Lariat

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,710 miles

Transmission was repaired under warranty 4 months ago. Since that repair I returned on 2 occaisions complaining of rough shifting N slipping, to be told it was functioning properly by Dartmouth Dodge. Transmission failed completely while driving. Truck would not move.

This is the second complete failure of the tranny in 4 months and 3 weeks in with no repairs done to the vehicle, and broken promises from Chrysler on parts availability. Despite their failure to supply parts to the dealer going on 4 weeks, they will not authorize compensation for a rental vehicle of any kind.

I'm paying for a vehicle that I bought from a Chrysler dealer that I cant drive, or get them to fix. Chrysler seems uninterested in fixing it, the dealer I bought it from has proven incapable of fixing it, the current dealer can get the oem parts or aftermarket parts with warranty. Any suggestions, please share.

At 53000 if went out completely. and dodge denied the coverage as a prior problem. I have 2 dodge diesels and will be trading for something else this week

problem #1

Ram 2500 5.7L Turbo Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35 miles

Dodge will not stand by their product. Having to replace a transmission on a 2006 with only 35K is unsat! Will not buy a dodge again.
