problem #8

I will describe the ┐problem┐ to the best of my ability: At completely random times if the car hasn┐T warmed up extensively it loses power and the feeling is as if you have been rear-ended by another car. Your foot is still on the gas and the car doesn┐T rev it just has nothing. I was almost hit many times. I actually had to pull out of traffic and put my flashers on to let it warm up another 7-10 minutes. This seemed to solve it, yet I still asked many people if they thought this was common with such a new vehicle.. I brought it in on March 14 at 7pm. By 9 am the next morning I got a call from the dealership and they had found nothing wrong with my car? there were ┐no codes and no warning lights, so they couldn┐T fix what they didn┐T see.┐ I picked up the vehicle and drove home. 2 days later I drove a mile from my house to cvs pharmacy and had ┐the problem┐ occur while I was going about 45 miles per hour. Again, I was almost hit by a car behind me because the car immediately stops with no warning, no braking, etc... it is the scariest feeling! it was completely odd to me because it was not cold this day. I looked the temp gauge in the car and it was 53 degrees. My husband told me to not drive it the rest of the day. When he got home he followed me to the dealership. They had the car over a month and finally called me. They claim it was a loose wire, but gave me such vague info.. I talked to the service manager and he still said they didn't know 100% accuracy what was wrong with this car. He said he would not deem it 100% safe. I chose to turn the lease in early because I will not risk my life or my family's life in this car. I don't want another person to buy this car not knowing the condition it is in! it only has 8345 miles on it and is a beautiful car, but dangerous!

I have recieved 3 recalls and all of them the manufacturer just says to contact dealer for vehicle inspection and part repair. Its been 3 mos and poway Dodge dealer said to wait till I got another recall notice that parts have been distributed. I am wondering if I need to have the accident before the company accepts responsability for repairs or worst deaths in my family. I have a two year old and an 8 year old to protect Mr. CEO/vp. First it was the breaks, then seat belt, now navigation system. I also have not been able to use one of the air condition vents in front seat cause its never circulated since I bought it. Was my car made on a Friday before happy hour?

This is a rental car, therefore not positive if it's a 2015 model. While driving on the expressway, I shifted in my seat and my foot accidentally touched the hood release. The hood opened while driving, although not completely since it has a secondary hood latch release. The hood was bouncing until I could safely pull over at the next exit.

Was driving outt of state in a 5 month old vehicle. We then stopped at a food place for about 25 minutes. When I tried to start the car, brake pedal was hard and would not give way, dash lights lit up run light as well but vehicle did not start. On several occassions the same thing happened with no results. After 5 attempts, the vehicle finally started and the check engine light lit up. Light stayed on for 4 days and then went off. Contacted dealership, after inspection determined crankshaft sensor message was recorded. Part was ordered and replaced. Hope this fixes the problem. Have seen all older models have similar issues. Hope Dodge addresses ant exsisting issues on new models.
