Purchased As New
We have now had this car for a whole year. We bought it because it was a seven passenger vehicle and we needed more space for all five of us. We also got it because we thought it would last a while and we want to have one more child eventually. That was not the case. As i stated we have had the car a whole year and as soon as we passed the one year mark it started acting up. First there was a leak in the transmission and the part had to be ordered. Once the dealership got the part they found out it was not the same as the one off our car. So they had to take one of another journey to fix the car cause they had already had it for a week. July has been great. We had it towed because the engine was over heating, there was already a recall out for the not starting all the time issue. Chrysler Group only covered 10 miles so they took it to a different dealer then where we bought it. When the dealership got it they said it was because of a freon leak in the dash that was causing the coolent to dump out the overflow tube. They fixed the freon and about one thousand later we get the car back. Two weeks later the car is dumping coolant like crazy, and the engine overheats again. We stop and i have to walk my daughters, ages 2 and 1, the five blocks left to their school/daycare. Call the dealer we bought it from and they are going out of business so they wont tow. Call Chrslyer but we are over 36,000 miles so they wont tow. Call another dealer and they will work on the car but we have to find our own way there. So USAA to save the day. Got a tow and a discounted rental while our only vehicle is in the shop. Sad thing is we have been wanting to get a second vehicle and we had finnally saved enough to do it and out brand new car keeps breaking down. In July alone we have had to pay over $2000 in repairs and rental fees. Are the car companys purposely building vehicles that fall apart after one year? I want it gone and i think i will stay away from Dodge!
