Dash board is cracking into pieces actually disinegrating. If by chance cuts any wiring it could cut my lights out or something else I am not that familiar with the electronics of an automoblbile. Thank you

The contact owns a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500. The contact drove the vehicle to a local repair shop for a routine tire rotation. The mechanic informed her that the front driver's and passenger side tires were cut. The tires were rotated and she continued driving the vehicle. All four tires were rotated during two routine inspections, but, after the last rotation, the mechanic informed her that the "a" frame bolt was rubbing the tires and puncturing the front tires. The manufacturer stated that there were no complaints regarding the "a" frame bolt and to call the dealer. The dealer has not been notified. The current mileage was 70,000 and failure mileage was 35,000.

Ram 1500 8-cyl

Last November on my way to school, I was involved in a rollover accident while getting onto the highway. The roads were bad and extremely icy. However, I lost control of the truck while getting onto the highway, put it into 4X4 and corrected myself, then the 4X4 went out (which commonly happened), lost control, hit the median sideways, and rolled the truck. The problem was during the rollover, 1. I had to push myself back into the seat to engage my seatbelt, and 2. the back two in roof roll guards broke. I was only going about 20 - 25mph when I rolled and the back window smashed down several inches. The collapsing of the roof should not have happened as bad. The median had over 6" of snow in it. If a person was sitting in the back seat, he/she would have been seriously injured. Truck is considered totaled. Model is a 2001 Dodge 1500 4X4 quad cab short box slt/laramie w/the 5.2L magnum V8.

Left rear of quad cab not welded completely. Quad cab door and drivers' side door do not close completely. You can hear them rattle when driving. This was reported to two separate dealers and the factory representative and Chrysler corporation. They offered $500 for the defect. This is a safety defect as well as a value defect. We fear the drivers' side door may open, as well as the quad cab door, in an accident.
