Wheel lugs: Studs are of defective material. In the last 6 months, there have been 6 failures where the lugs had to be replaced. The lugs and nuts sieze and cannot be removed and replaced without an air wrench. These replacements are documented. The "merchants tire" dealer says it is widespread among Chrysler. This is a safety issue since it makes the spare tire useless (lugs cannot be removed with manual lug wrench). I use the car to get to remote areas and being stranded by a flat tire is dangerous. I hope that a recall can be issued for this defect. Please advise.
