Driver side front window/locks/mirror controls don't work. Rear window controls do work on driver side. Locks and passenger window controls work on passenger side. All is exactly as in safety recall k07-front door wiring harness (stopped with model year 2009) so why is my exact problem (2010) shared by so many other 2010s on the internet, too? I am frustrated. Mechanic cannot find problem. Considering buying a new master switch for driver door-others say replacing it didn't work! it's a known problem-symptoms exact and to the "t". . . Recall window cutoff too soon!!! was notified of ignition/key fobick recall, thankfully! car occasionally almost dies, chugs, and keeps running. Car starts and runs great-intermittent almost dying thing always out of the blue! not notified about high pressure power steering hose leaking problem-just paid to have that replaced. Power steering makes terrible noise when turned to right. Suspension rattles like a box of bones! what next? I'm getting the sense that this vehicle isn't safe to drive (esp. W/my son in the car)! diagnostics and repair bills and quotes really starting to stack up-the more I look into this 2010 Dodge Journey regarding my problems, seeing so many others with same exact problems-really surprised that the recall list isn't more than it is! how many people have to live through the same poor quality issues before the manufacturer takes care of these sometimes seemingly pandemic problems??? started before 116,000 miles - now 120,115 miles.

Tl- the contact owns a 2012 Dodge Journey. The contact stated that the abs and the traction control warning lights intermittently illuminated. The vehicle was taken to a dealer (ville platte Dodge,1320 w main st, ville platte, la 70586, (337) 363-6627) who indicated that they serviced the vehicle for a manufacturer recall concerning the brakes and within a week the contact noticed an abnormal noise and the brakes had failed to function properly when applied. The vehicle as taken to the dealer more than twice and they had been unable to replicate and diagnose the vehicle after several test drives. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign numbers: 15v675000 (electronic stability control, service brakes, hydraulic), 15v431000 (engine and engine cooling) but was uncertain if the dealer remedied the recall repairs which was very unacceptable for the contact because the brakes had not functioned properly. The manufacturer was notified of the failure to determine if they may be able to provide a repair solution to the dealer. The approximate failure mileage was not available. Parts distribution disconnect. Dyd.

The Dodge Journey has a history of transmission faults, loud and noisy and rough transmission shifts. While shifting into a great it will make a loud thud and the car will jerk. We started to get used to this as it has happened since day 1. We let Chrysler know about this and apparently this is "normal. " I have never had a similar issue with any other car so to me it is not normal. So fast forward to this past weekend. We were going to tow a few items and drop them off. So everything is loaded and ready to tow, we are on a flat surface with no incline at all, start the car up and put it into drive and bam! a loud noise while we tried to put it into gear. The car was still running while this happened and we started to roll backwards, while in drive. I tried to hit the gas but it just revved a few thousand rpms. I hit the brakes and put it into park and then drive again, but the transmission was still not engaging. Something happened causing the loud bang and no throttle response to the drivetrain. After I put it in park, walked around and then got back in starting the car up again; the car engaged gear this time. Everything ran perfect and then I took it to the Chrysler dealership, they said they could find no evidence what happened or what was wrong, but reassured me again that the loud transmission shifts are normal. So this could be potentially dangerous if this was to happen while on the road or at a stop somewhere.

Since I purchased this vehicle in September of 2011 i¿ve had problems from the radio not working, power outlets not working, bad cylinder heads, have random loss of acceleration, bad gas tank and fuel pump. According to the technician at the dealer the Journey has a problem with the cylinder going bed within the first year. The fuel pump had to be replaced twice. The first time they replaced it I broke down in the middle of the freeway 3 days later with my family in the vehicle. The brakes and steering wheel locked up and the vehicle shutoff. I was a sitting duck waiting to be hit be oncoming vehicles. I had the vehicle towed back to the dealer and 3 days later i¿m told that the vehicle is fixed but I need to replace the brakes because they were at 0%. First of all I just had to replace the tires 2 months prior and my brakes were fine now I have no brakes at all. Secondly they said they road tested the vehicle the first time they should have fixed the issue but yet they didn¿t tell me I needed new brakes. I couldn¿t fuel my vehicle to full. It generally stop around 3/4. They have replaced everything there is to replace and the car still doesn¿t work. After the second time the fuel pump was replaced I was told my vehicle was fixed I picked it up and it was worse than when I drop it off. The vehicle was making loud noises, vibrating, and I still couldn¿t tell how much gas was in the tank. On top of all of that they tried to charge me 20 dollars for gas and when I refused to pay they took the gas out the vehicle and left it on the line next to the e. I had enough gas to make it to the gas station. Needless to say i¿m still without a vehicle.
