I was driving normally about 20 mph and I made a sharp turn and the engine shut off the power steering shut down there was a chime and the oil light turned on. I put the car in park and was able to start it up again. I hear and read that is a constant problem among consumers.

From the time we bought this car, it feels like the front end is going to come out from underneath it. At 65 mph its shakes voilently. Replaced both outer tie rods. Replaced all 4 tires due to uneaven wear. Going back to the shop this week to see whats next to fix. For the longest time, I thought the dealership sold me a totalled car. But after reading all the complaints abought the 2010 Dodge Chargers, looks like Dodge put out a piece of crap car for that year. I would not suggest anyone buying one of these, unless you have the money to feed the shop.

In 2011 I purchased this 2010 Dodge Charger from a dealer located in paramus NJ. The vehicle was purchased as a certified used vehicle. After about 2 weeks of ownership, I began to notice a slight pull of the steering wheel in the vehicle to the right. I had to maintain constant left pressure on the wheel in order to keep the vehicle traveling straight. I then noticed that when I depressed the break at approximately 60 mph the vehicle violently shook. I also noticed a noisy that was coming from the right front wheel area as if there was a part that was rubbing and would fall off. I immediately contacted the dealer and advised them of the issue. They did set an appointment up for me to address the issue. After taking the vehicle to the dealer they advised me that they found nothing wrong with the suspension and that the vehicle was fine. I took the vehicle and returned it to my garaging area. Later on in the month, I noticed that the same issue was occurring once again and I then decided that I needed to call the dealer again. They told me that there was nothing wrong and looked at the car again. About 2 months later I began noticing the issue once again, only this time to find that there was also an issue with noise coming from the steering column, the noise sounded as a windshield wiper against a dry glass. I decided that I would take the car to my personal mechanic. My mechanic advised me that there was an issue with the tie rod ends and that they were a known problem. He stated that the steering column as well and that they both required replacement. I had the tie rod ends replaced in November of 2012 we are now in 2013 and I am once again being told that the tie rod ends are bad and require replacement. I am constantly forced to maintain left pressure on the steering wheel. This is a problem that needs to be recalled. Please investigate.

I have had the car for 2 years and already have replaced both outer tie rod ends. When is it considered a lemon?

While driving I began to experience hearing a knocking noise coming from the right front passenger side of car. This problem was first noted several days after purchasing from dealer. Dealer was notified and advised the problem would be taken care of. Received the vehicle back and no noise. Several months later same noise vehicle was taken back to dealer because along with the noise the tires on vehicle was worn irregularly. The dealer refused to repair issue. Goodyear inspected vehicle and advised that the tires and alignment was severly off. I was advised by Goodyear that vehicle appears to be ok but is known to have suspension issue. Recently I took vehicle for tire rotation and was advised that outer tie rod ends are loose and required immediate repair. This explained my inability to steer effectively and knocking noise which returns.

Charger 8-cyl

This December 2011, I have owned the car for two years. It has stalled in traffic three times while turning to the left and once while turning to the right. It felt like the vehicle had run out of gasoline, however there was plenty of gasoline. I have avoided three collisions, the last two because I was able to restart the vehicle quickly, due to experience. I have taken the vehicle to the dealer ("redlands Dodge" California) however they say the computer has no record and of the problem and they can't recreate the problem. I have found on the "internet" several sites of owners of the same vehicle and year with the same problem. This problem is not being addressed by Dodge because the dealership told me there is no fix at this time or recall.

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Charger. The contact received a voluntary recall notification from the manufacturer associated with the power steering hose. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where they informed the contact that the part needed to make repairs was on a massive backorder. The manufacturer and dealer were unable to provide an approximate date for the availability of the recalled part. The contact had not experienced a failure.
