The car is falling apart, interior is falling apart, example seat belts on the driver's side is not in tact, the passenger chair on the right side frame is broken, air conditioner has gone out and we needed to install a new airconditioner, the brakes have been replaced twice already, I guess every nine months the car needs a new brake change, the Chrysler credit Corp has never given us a receipt on how much more to pay and when we call them up, they would not tell us how much more to go for the payments, they also know that since we purchased this car from the very first day this vehicle has been in and out of the shop for repairs. Then they would change constantly where the payment should go. I just wished they would stop that. It is like a house loan, we have changed mortagager four times and this is getting very stressful. Can you please help us with this matter.
