problem #3

Aug 152003


  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,000 miles


I was driving 70 mph down the highway when the car shuddered. I took an off ramp by the time I reached the end of the off ramp the car had died and would not restart. The extended warranty I purchased is no good, due to bankrupty. The dealer insisted I tow it to them and they would work with me to help pay for the repair. They then blamed me completely and refused to help me at all. This is the second major repair to this car. First bushings and then bolts coming out the powersteering housing. If I had not been near an off ramp I could have been in a major accident.

  • Automatic transmission

My engine started making a noise on July 4, 2003. When I had it towed to a dealership they said there was sludge in the engine and it was on us, we had also purchased an extended warranty and they denied our claim and the dealership we purchased the vehicle did to, we have all oil receipts and I've done alot of research on the 2.7L engines and there are alot of the these engines with this same problem (sludge build up) the quote to repair my car is $9500 and I cannot afford this, it has been almost 7 months and my car is just sitting in my drive way, I'm making monthly payments on this car and it is no good. Please help all of us to do something about Chrysler. It's us little people against the big corporations and we have no chance at all.
