Charger 6-cyl

  • 30,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Charger. While driving in the fall of 2008, the vehicle suddenly accelerated and slowed down when he depressed the brake pedal. He took the vehicle to the dealership but the dealer could not duplicate the failure. On another occasion while driving, he tried to stop at a traffic light yet the brakes did not respond; instead the vehicle began to accelerate. He pulled the vehicle to the right and continued to press on the brake pedal and after several attempts the vehicle stopped. He took the vehicle to the dealership and expressed his concerns. Once again, the dealer could not find the cause. He has not called the manufacturer to-date. The vehicle has not been repaired at the time of the complaint. The current mileage was approximately 44,500. The failure mileage was approximately 30,000. Updated 03/01/10 the consumer stated the vehicle would go N O faster than 10 mph. Updated 09/02/10

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger, purchased in cleveland oh in October/November 2005. I had issues with my vehicle starting in the beginning of 2006. I initially noticed that my transmission clutch was slipping and that my vehicle would not shift into gear. I took the vehicle into the dealership in September 2006 O find that the transmission clip had to be replaced. Then another issue, that has yet to be resolved, began to emerge in early 2007. I noticed that the vehicle would rumble as if was preparing to shut off, usually when I was coming to a stop. Additionally, my vehicle would at times seem to be stuck in idle when I was trying to accelerate. My vehicle has been in the dealership repair shop 5 different times for this issue. I was told twice that the computer chip needed to be reprogrammed. Two other times I was told the issue was related to brake issues and that my brakes needed to be replaced. I am filing this complaint because my vehicle is currently not under warranty, meaning a service charge everytime I take it in, and once again the issue has gone to the point where I need to take it one more time. I have contacted the manufacturer twice on this issue, once in 2007 and again recently, to no resolve. I have talked to one other Charger (2007)owner who indicated they have a similar issue. The issue only occurs periodically, but prevents me from traveling long distances in my vehicle for fear of irreparable damage. I feel as my last option is to file this complaint.
