We compalined to our local service dealer, croton Dodge in croton NY of a water leak from the car wash, the dealer discovered that the arm supporting convertible roof had cracked completely all the way through. Dodge says that because it is a frame problem and because of the mileage they are not responsible. Since when does a vehicle owner have to protect himself from metal failure of a car frame" isn't it reasonable to expect a car frame to last the life of a car" croton Dodge has estimated this job to cost well in excess of $2500. Your assistancew is greatky appreciated.

Consumer has had several problems with vehicle. Brakes do not work, they grind and the pads keep wearing and have to be replaced, dealer stated the problem was with the calipers. Water is leaking into the vehicle due to sunroof being cut too short during recall 99I004, consumer feels there might have been previous problems with water leaking due to a rusted fuse. Speedometer does not work. There is a transmission leak. Air conditioner does not work. Engine light is illuminated. Windows still don't work properly. Mirrors do not work properly after recall 97V015. Vehicle gets poor gas mileage, dealer stated the spark plugs were burnt and fouled, spark plug wires were breaking down and arcing in tubes causing a build up in the throttle body.

Problems with the left front locking device of the convertible top. Threads of hold down bolt stripped, causing the top to come loose. Replacement unit purchase from Chrysler looked a lot sturdier than the original, so they must have experienced more problems with this device.
