The dash board on my 2000 Dodge Ram 2400 has cracked in numerous places and is caving in. I am concerned that if the air bags deployed, passengers could injured by the sharp pieces of plastic.

Consumer states that the seal on her vehicle's windshield was broken which caused the rain to leak into the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the mechanic who replaced the seal. The consumer was told that this was a manufacturer's defect.

The main problem with this 2000 Ram 2500 4 whdr cummins diesel, quad cab, truck is the Chrysler design defective front end. In my case, the trac-bar. This, in my area is a $439 plus tax item, the dealer steals another $75 plus taxes for installation. Two bolts hold this device in place and is only a 15 min repair. The trouble is in 30,000 km the new trac-bar has failed making it a chore to keep the truck between the lines. You dart all over in your lane depending on the pavement ruts and general pavement condition. I can see this design defect causing added stress and problems to the ball joints. This defect is a Chrysler problem and all costs to cover repairs should be covered by the manufacture and not the customer. This, and the other many, Dodge front end problems I feel is just cause for a recall order.

Had a short block placed on engine due to making a pecking noise. Also, transmission would make a whinning sound when shifting into gear. This happens anytime when either stopping or starting off. Air conditioner and heater are inoperable. Vibration is felt at 48-60 mph. Dealer replaced engine, however problem is still present, dealer told consumer to use 30 weight oil, consumer wants dealer to buy back vehicle, he feels he has a lemon.
