 Description of the problemAfter reading many of the same complaints i have, i'm beginning to wonder if dodge/chrysler/fiat did the same as gm. That is, intentionally put customers in harms way for profit during the economic downturn. I have a "08" 4x4 ext. Cab truck, that has a clunking noise coming from the rear end. This has happened when i first put this truck in "d", or go through the gears. I have experienced the engine shutting off when i bumped it accidently with my knee. Realize i only have one key on my key ring, so it's not a weight issue similar to gm's ignition problems. I do have a recall for the airbags that i'm sure won't be addressed by dodge or the local dealers because it does have over 100,000 miles and is a used vehicle. I also have experienced a bounce in the front end when i make a sharp turn. Yes, with 100,000 miles, i prolly need new shocks/struts, but it could very well also be a mechanical/wear issue with the ball joints/tie rod ends. I have also experienced a hard shift in the 5 speed transmission my truck has, even though i've changed out the transmission oil twice since owning this truck. The one nice thing about the ford products i owned prior, a recall was just that and they honored it even if i wasn't the original owner/mileage issue/etc. That's what safety recalls should be about--safety first! Then again, what difference does it make to a manufacturer like dodge?? To the employee's that want mega monies? To the corporate mgr's that make big bucks, they all hold the consumer as a prisoner per se by putting out a product that doesn't hold up and yet will not honor their mistakes by fixing the product as needed in a timely manner. By the way, i baby my vehicles, i'm not rough on them at all. So mileage should not matter with reasonable wear/tear on any vehicle.
