Failure Date: 02/15/2010

At 11k miles I had to have front brakes replaced. Shortly after that my back brakes had to be replaced and my back rotors were warped. The dealer told me I had exceeded the 12k manufacturer warranty and had to pay for repair. After researching consumer reviews and having read of numerous complaints on brakes / rotors I sent a letter to Chrysler along with complaints. I did not receive any letter, not a phone call, just a check for repayment of brake work. Since then I have had my censor light come on twice for the tires and up until now, after reading from this website was I unaware this vehicle appears to have problems with tires as well. My vehicle is currently in the shop. I had taken in twice for a noise that was coming from the front passenger side. The first time I was told they could not find anything. The 2nd I was told it was a computer chip that needed adjusting and it would be "fine". It wasn't fine. The noise got worse. My power locks on driver door and my remote key would not work. I took my vehicle in for both the noise and the power locks/key not working. I have been without a vehicle since Monday (it is Friday) and it is due to having to replace a wiring system and alternator. An alternator? my vehicle has 25k miles!! please help. . . . . There are almost 200 complaints for all the same problems I am having. This is not right.
