problem #2

Journey 4-cyl

  • 39,000 miles


While driving vehicle at highway speeds right rear wheel locked up due to rear caliper failing to release. Caused large amount of smoke to pour from rear tire. Brakes were checked numerous times for noise under warranty. No faults were found according to the service department. Previously vehicle has had two sets of front rotors, three sets of front pads.rear pads replaced at just over 31K miles. Now at 39K rear calipers are seized which caused damage to the rear rotors and pads. Dealership paid for the rear calipers. Chrysler refuses to answer my concerns.just had to shell out $416 for rear pads and rotors. Should have been taken care of while under warranty when it was first noted. Clearly this is a safety issue which should be investigated.

Bought a brand new 2010 Dodge Journey and it needed new brake pads and rotors at just 19,000 miles, worried brakes may fail at some point or are not sufficient enough for the vehicle. Dealership billed me $50 to get them repaired, stated Chrysler/Dodge company put a "participation fee" and if my car was over 24,000 miles it would be $100. Dodge seems well aware of this issue with the brakes on these vehicles but are not doing anything about it, brakes are a top safety concern for any vehicle, and I feel I am driving a ticking time bomb especially with my children in the vehicle.
