According to the shop who is working on my airconditioning, the hose is on backorder nationwide. They said the dealer said it is almost a recall because the air cond hoses are failing so often that they can't get them in stock.

Blown head gasket after only around 54,000 miles - mechanic said that the car shouldn't suffer from such problems at such a young age. Chrysler corporation notified but refused to help saying the car is out of warranty. In addition, the car suffers from significant engine noise when idling and the air conditioner just went out. While I understand that the car is out of warranty, I am very disapointed in the quality of Chrysler's product and the company's unwillingness to stand by their automobiles.

- Costa Mesa, CA, USA

Took car in to 3 different dealers to have them fix water leaks & air whistling and none could fix it. They said there was a flaw in the design of the top. They tried spraying foam on edge, adding an elastic strap (#8894 part), tried adjusting top - none of these exercises worked. Now yet another dealer in joplin too tells us there's nothing that can be done as it's a flaw in the design/construction. There is also a whistling in the A/C system or vents when A/C is on and driving 40+ miles an hour. Several times while driving in "D" the transmission doesn't shift out of low gear.

- Joplin, MO, USA
