2013 Dodge Journey Owner Comments

problem #4

  • 50,000 miles


I own a 2013 Dodge Journey. On October 5th many electrical issues began and continue even after the recalls here addressed. ABS light came on, traction control disabled, cruise control function quit working dash displays/touchscreen began to flicker, bluetooth/uconnect/voice systems became non-responsive, ambient lighting on the passenger side flickers on and off, and the climate control system turned on after being set to the off position. The vehicle cabin is being contaminated by fumes and by the fiberglass soundproofing that is somehow entering the cabin. Dealership claims the recalls were addressed abut the ABS and traction control issues are due to a speed control sensor, wants to charge me the $227 for this sensor, the voice system is due to another module (still awaiting pricing), can't figure out why the various other electrical issues are occurring, nor how the fiberglass and fumes are getting in and that none of this is covered by the recalls nor by my manufacturer powertrain warranty, and he knows many people that haven't wrecked driving without the traction control and ABS systems so we can pick it up and drive it until we are ready to order the parts and pay for the repair. Fiberglass contamination is a pretty serious issue that causes cancer and various other health issues, the traction control, dashboard display, and antilock breaking systems are a serious safety concern and the recall stated loss of control could result in a crash and the vehicle should be fixed immediately

I was driving down the highway going about 48 miles per hour with my baby in the car and I tried to slow the vehicle down for a yellow light my breaks would not stop it took a hard stomp to come to a complete stop. Also my car will not shift gears it jerks when done and takes off very slowly hardly picking up speed. It also makes a knocking sound and vibration when you drive and after you turn the ignition off

The contact owns a 2013 Dodge Journey. The contact stated that while attempting to accelerate, the vehicle hesitated. Additionally, the contact stated that the accelerator pedal seized for several seconds causing the vehicle to fail to decelerate. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the failure was unable to be replicated. The manufacturer was made aware of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 8,300.
