Chronic Misfiring and loss of power, in a 2005 Dodge Neon.Submitted 2007-11-08
Defendant: Daimler Chrysler (2.7 litre engine failure)
We have lost several days of work, shelled out $80 in towing twice, 2 $100 deductibles for the extended warranty. The problem started before the manufacturer warranty was up, and has still not been resolved. It is in the shop as we speak. Dodge refuses to accept any fault, and each time they say it is a new problem even though the car does the same thing everytime. I found on the internet yesterday, that we are not the only ones with this problem. There are several Neons on the road with the same issue, that started at or near the same mileage that our problem started. For a year now, I thought it was just our car. I now know that it is a faulty product and there should be repercussions for putting lives at risk. Each time we go in, we are told a different story or dumb excuse. There was a problem before the warranty expired, and they refused to see it stating they "can't duplicate the issue" or that "there is no check engine light on so the car is fine". At one point in time we were even told that the car had power surged and blew out a sensor. The car loses power going down the road, and we worry about getting hit when it does that. There really needs to be a class-action lawsuit, large enough to shut Dodge down or wake them up!
