A Truck With Problems
CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA -- I leased a 2006 Dodge Ram from Country Club Chrysler-Dodge Rt 19 South Clarksburg WV 26302 with the intent of buying after the lease was done, But w/all the problems I have had I don't trust the truck. I have had problems with or they have repaired: wiper blades, battery, speed sensor, brake rotor vibration, cruise control, transmission, computer, front seat cover, refinish hood @ cab of truck because of paint coming off, towed in[stuck in 4WD] 4WD shift motor. Recalls: Air bags, seat belts, front wheel bearings. Vibration problem: replaced front drive shaft, changed oil in transfer case, said it had water from where it was built in Louisiana when Katrina happened. Then replaced the complete transfer case assembly. The last attempt at repair was on 1/29/08 w/ 7,616 miles and the vibration is still there! I was asked to bring the truck vack for the Chrysler Rep To check but, he didn't know what the problem is so 2 or 3 weeks later took it back for Chrysler Engineer to drive. He told me that this was not the first one that he had driven with this problem. He said that he would put me on a VIP list, so if Chrysler found out what the problem was, I would be the first to know.
This is Chrysler's problem NOT mine I don't see why I have to put up with it They Should take the truck back, then sell it when it is fixed. As many times as I have the truck back to the dealer ship @about 70 miles round trip, it has been very expensive for me. I have a small garage and body shop, so every time I have to take the truck back I have to shut down my business. I joined Business Link w/Chrysler I was to have a free rental, so far I have never had one, even though it was in there for over 2 weeks for the paint work.
They did loan me an old car w/100,000 miles on it 2 other times. Seems to me that I have been shafted!!!! If you are in the market for a new vehicle, for your sake please LOOK ELSEWHERE!~!!!
