The contact owns a 2015 Dodge Challenger. While operating the vehicle, the contact noticed an extreme odor inside the vehicle. The contact had to open the windows because the odor impacted the contact's breathing. The dealer was notified several times, but was unable to diagnose the cause of the failure. The contact waited for months to determine if the manufacturer could provide a remedy. The failure mileage was not available.

The motor was making a groaning noise, it was taken to the dealership for diagnosis. The dealer claimed the water pump was defective but the car was still able to be driven. The dealer reported a back order on the replacement part and allowed me to take the car and continue driving until the part came in. Within 200 miles, the motor developed a squeaking noise and the engine would surge uncontrollably. The car was returned to the dealer. The dealer determined the squealing and surging as the water pump had failed and the car was determined not safe to drive. The part has been on back order in excess of one month.

I own a 2015 Dodge Challenger. While driving various speeds the vehicle will randomly stall and display "come to a complete stop and select the appropriate gear." This has happened 10-15 times. I have taken the vehicle to a Dodge dealership 3 times. On the second visit they replaced the transmission and valve body. I left the dealership and was only 4 blocks away and the vehicle stalled and displayed the same error. The vehicle is currently at the dealership and they say they cannot duplicate what is happening, so they don't know how to troubleshoot the problem. This started happening at approximately 16,000 miles.

The contact owns a 2015 Dodge Challenger. While driving various speeds from a completed stop, the vehicle stalled. A message appeared on the instrument panel to come to a complete stop and to select the appropriate gear.

The contact stated that the failure occurred five times and the vehicle was taken back to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The dealer gave the contact a data recorder to record issues in the vehicle. The dealer determined that the failure occurred due to a fuel pump.

On September 30th, I drove home from work which is a 22 mile commute. I arrived at home at approx 8pm and parked my car in the garage. At about 8:40 I heard a loud boom but was unsure where it came from. About 10 or 15 minutes later I heard the fire trucks and a neighbor banging on my door. Black smoke was coming through the locked garage door. The fireman unlocked and opened the door, the engine and structure was on fire. It took about 20 minutes to put it out.
