 Description of the problemI purchased a used 2012 dodge journey in september 2015 from lakeshore chrysler dodge and jeep of slidell, louisiana. We have had nothing but problems since driving off the lot. Found out after purchase that the car was not inspected prior to dealership reselling it. Before i even got home the check engine light came on. I called the dealership and reported issues. They did the oil change and inspected the car and said everything was fine it was "normal noises" however after complaining and complaining the were able to locate and fix the issue with the shifting noises and jolting. We are still experiencing the "normal noise" of three clicks when the engine turns off. We have numerous electrical/computer issues. The air, radio, touch screen, lights, all got off randomly. The system will not respond even if the vehicle is turned off and back on. It works when it wants to. We have issues where the car accelerates faster on its own have to break while car still tries to accelerate. We have had this vehicle in the shop numerous times since the purchase and they "can not duplicate the issue" so they can not fix it. I have provided numerous videos showing and proving the electrical/computer issues we are having. Dodge refuses to do anything to fix the situation. Everything is at our expense. Wants us to pay 150 diagnostic fee on top of having to get rent-a-car for the duration of time the vehicle is in the shop. The dealership has had my car on numerous occasions. One time they had it for over 18 days and said "normal noise" and "could not duplicate" however out of the 18 days they only drove the car 35 miles. I no longer feel safe driving this car. It scares me just to drive to the local grocery which we gotten stuck and had to have towed to dealership. I am so scared & trapped in this car with no way out. Contacting a lawyer this can not be legal to sell defects.
