Tamara recall. Ok I have a problem with the heater core in my 2013 Dodge Avenger. I've taken it to the dealership and they tell me that the heater core is plugged after further investigation on the internet I learned I'm not the only consumer with this problem. The dealership tells me it a defect in the manufacturing of the heater core from the factory but no recall has been issued at this time and there is several complaints about this. I have heat on the drivers side but blows cold on the passanger side not allowing the defrost to melt the ice on the windshield. This is a very dangerous situation and could cause traffic accidents. Upon your investigation you will find its not just one make and model it's several and the manufacturer and the dealership know it a problem but will not correct it. I'm sending this message to see if there's something that can be done. Thank you in advance for your time. Tim

Avenger 6-cyl

  • 7,500 miles
I bought the 2013 Dodge Avenger in Jan. 2013. March 2013 came and my windshield wipers would start wiping do to the over cast and shadows. When I took it to Dodge they told me there was nothing they can do because it wasn't happening then in front of them. Then at 7500 miles in July 2013 my brakes started making loud noises. At first it was only when I backed up then come August it was all the time. After 5 visits of scuffing the roaders up they said if it happened again they said they would replace everything in the brake system cause there was a large amount of complaints in the 300 models, darts, and Avengers. First trip to the service department they said they replaced the whole brake system... brakes, roaders, and pads...(they stated their was scares in the roaders and it shouldn't of been that way with only 7500 miles) to the front and rear. They also stated they left my account open incase that didn't work. However that was a lie they only did the rear and that same day the front was so bad I couldn't drive it. 3 days later they got it back in to the service department and did the whole front system of the brakes. That worked for 1 week and I'm really mad. I have called 17 times left voicemails for the dealer ship manager and service department. My brakes now are sticking and still loud as ever. They still have not returned my call. I only have 18000. Miles on this car. I would like to have it fixed. This is not only me having this issue. Help us be safe recall for fix the problem please.

Avenger 6-cyl

  • 7,000 miles
Purchased car 7/11/2013: (the 7,000 miles is a guesstimate) 11/21/2013 while in wv for my mothers funeral, parked in gas station, car running, in park, L/R turn signals started flashing independently then the flashers started going off, stopped by themselves. This has continued, took to dealership, they couldn't find any codes, all connections looked ok. Started keeping a log of milage when this happens, starting on 1/4/2014 mileage 10,254 and has continued to current date 4/30/2014. This may happen only once but then again it may happen several times within the same milage. Can not count the times it happens while car is parked in the driveway with keys in the house and no one touching them. I believe it's the cluster in the steering column. Also, I could not get my wipers to spray/wipe until I turned the turn signals on. Has anyone else had this happen?
