During the summer or winter time the remote control don't work. Also the front planel show me some blinker lights when I use the directional light. The remote control issues in very unsafety because this car have just a door with the key access. If you have some emergency inside or fire, you can't open the doors. If you have children this issue will be a potential fatality because the others door are locked to access from outside. Please put attention in issue because I read more electrical problems in other websites in the same way. For this reason I started this petition.

Was driving and was flagged down and told my right and left tail light was not working. The middle brake light comes on but the right and left do not work. I have had the brake light switch replaced, checked the fuses and replaced both tail light circuit boards with nothing working.

Interior door handles keep breaking easily. Would result in fatality in case of fire. Brake lights keep going out with new bulbs. It's electrical problem. Very dangerous to other drivers on road as well as passengers.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Nitro. The contact stated that both rear brake lights malfunctioned. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who diagnosed that the bake light assembly had overheated causing the wiring to melt. The light assembly needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 87,107.

(1) the brake light on top of my tail gate is out. The cost of this light is $79.50. The cost of the other 2 side brake lights is $2.50 each. I will go to jail for having a light out before I pay $80. For this 3rd light. What do I do? (2) the front amber marker lights have gone out. These lights are only $2.50 each but it will cost me $95 to change one of them because the front of the car has to come off to change it. This should be illegal. What do I do? (3) the door mounted rear view mirrors are too big and mounted too high. The mirror along with the windshield post creates a huge blind spot when looking for traffic coming from the right or when turning to the left. At least once a month I almost pull out into a car in that blind spot. Very dangerous and poor engineering. What do I do?
