2006 Dodge Charger Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 032008

Charger 6-cyl

  • 31,876 miles


06 Dodge Charger with 33,000 miles. Car has began to violently shake and engine light will begin blinking while almost stopped at a stop light or fully stopped. I have to shut the car off stopped at an intersection for a short time and then restart to get out of the intersection. I do not see how this can possible be safe for my passengers(3 & 7 yr old), myself or other cars. This has occurred 4 times since May 2008. The dealership has replaced oxygen sensor, flashed the powertrain control module (saying lost communication with steering control module), and on July 29th replaced the powertrain control module. Had car back a few days and backed out of a parking space, put car in drive and pushing the accelerator did nothing. After a few seconds the accelerator worked & I moved about 10 feet. The car started shaking violently/engine light began blinking and I had to shut the car off. Fortunately, no one was around me this time. When I restarted the car, the engine light stayed on constant(not blinking), which I have been told over & over by the dealership is safe to drive. I was able to drive the 2 miles home. Took car into dealership again on Aug 4, 2008. Was told this time that there is a tsb & they have to order parts. But to pick it up until the parts come in that it is safe to drive. The consumer was told the vehicle had an evaporation leak. There were times when the vehicle would not accelerate, the engine light and esp/bas light illuminated. The dealer then stated the cause of the problem was a multi-cylinder misfire at cylinders 2-4. updated 10/09/08.
