The seal around the driver side and passenger side windows leak continuously when it rains or going through the automatic car wash! I've had the seal replaced at least 4 times and it still leaks!

The paint is chipping on the edge of the doors, all up and down the edge of the doors. This is happening on all the doors. We do not hit other cars with the doors. Have always bought Chrysler but this is the first time encountering this.

Was rear ended by a car traveling at 60mph and was pushed under a truck. The engine popped up and the back was pushed up into backseat. I wrote twice but never heard nothing back. I go to court for my accident since the owner of truck suing me and driver behind me June 30, 2014. My car was totaled with cost of repair $21000 on a car I had for approx 8 months. Date of accident was 6/9/12 not one air bag came out/ deployed. I was taken to hospital in ambulance on a stretcher. What can I do?

After minimal rain, the driver's side headlight assembly fogged up and accumulated drops of water inside the sealed unit. Took vehicle to dealer, technician said seal around unit is cracked and needed to be replaced. Dealer charges over $500 dollars for replacement. Nighttime visibility is drastically reduced. Repair is not covered under any warranty. This is an issue Chrysler knows about but has not issued a recall.
