On Friday, March 18, 2011 I rented a Dodge Magnum from Enterprise which I am returning on Monday, March 21, 2011. They did not have much left on their lot and it was a really cute car. Within a half an hour into my trip from Philadelphia, PA to North Carolina for a funeral I knew I had made a horrible mistake.
That was the worse riding vehicle I have ever driven or ridden in during my years of driving. I thought I would have to stop at a pharmacy to purchase medication for motion sickness. It felt like I was in a row boat in the middle of the ocean. Riding over even the smallest bump in the road sent waves of discomfort through my body. If there had been any place or way to return that car at 3 A.M. I would have done just that. I am alerting ALL of my family and friends when you see that Dodge Magnum, walk the other way. Actually run.
SYRACUSE, NEW YORK -- My two day old Magnum, with only 70 miles on it, developed serious electrical problems. In addition to the Electronic Stability Program light going on, and the Brake Assist Light going on, the following items no longer worked. These include the directionals, the high beam headlights, the horn and the cruise control. Dodge says they have experienced similar problems before, and are working on trying to fix these problems.
However, after paying a good deal of money and trading in a perfectly good car with no known problems, I am now using a rental car, with no date when I can expect my new Magnum to be fixed. Anyone else having similar problems? If so, what was the action taken to correct the problem?
