My Dodge has shut off on me while driving twice and each time we take it to the dealership they say they cannot find anything wrong with it. The first time it happened was August 6, 2018 the second time was August 29, 2018. Both times it shut off on us while we were on the freeway

My wife and I were driving down the road to our house. There was no traffic in front of us, nor was any oncoming traffic in the opposite lanes. There were no people around on the sidewalks. We were traveling approximately 40 mph and slowing down to make a right hand turn towards our house, our sunroof exploded from the inside out. There was no impact of any kind. I wasn't sure what happened exactly, but we pulled over to check what might have hit us. There was nothing that would indicate an impact of any kind, yet the sunroof was shattered and bowed upwards instead of down towards the inside of the vehicle which would be more indicative of some kind of impact to the sunroof. It almost looked like a blow out from inside out like pressure had caused it. We contacted the dealership to tell them what happened (this car is brand new, it was bought on 5/13/18), they are telling us it had to be an impact. I believe this to be disingenuous. I have no reason to lie about this incident. I was the passenger in the car and I was paying attention when it happened. I believe this to be a safety risk for drivers. If we had not had the slider below the sunroof closed, broken glass would have rained down inside of the vehicle and potentially distracted my wife and caused an accident. Just the sound of the sunroof popping was extremely loud and caused a lot of immediate confusion. I have seen similar stories online about exploding sunroofs, and I believe it to be a legitimate safety concern.

At around 400-600 miles the car started having issues. Every time I press the brakes you can hear a noise as if the brakes have been wearing out, also when I turn the wheel left or right there is a ticking clicking noise.

2018 Dodge Charger with 8.4 U-connect radio system with sirius radio option. Sirius has weather/traffic updates which continually pop up on screen. I've documented pop-ups numerous times on short trips. I've created a log showing as many as three in a 20 minute drive.additionally, the warning reports are for areas outside my zip code (they are for another state). A driver have to take their eyes off the roadway and look at the radio display to cancel the alert. Sirius and Dodge are aware of this issue but there has been no patch to cure the issue or cancel and turn off the alerts. I just spoke to a service representative at sirius and they ware aware of many complaints. Dodge has been made aware of this situation. This is a common complaint listed on Dodge forums. I am a traffic school and dui instructor for the city of las vegas. I can tell you this is a serious distraction that can cause traffic accidents by drivers diverting their attention from driving to cancelling the pop up notices.
