Additional Notes

Complaint: My $50,000 new vehicle is under a ***** ordered safety recall for faulty airbags. I have made repeated attempts to have the vehicle repaired even going to the extent of just leaving it there one day due to the safety nature of this issue. The local dealership refuses to repair the car in a timely manner. They have used every excuse from the need to diagnosis the recall to they had an extremely busy day with some technicians being out for training. I have contacted Dodge Customer Relations only to be referred back to the dealership. The part only requires an hour to replace so I want an appointment to bring the vehicle in a get it back within a reasonable time frame say two hours. If not then they need to provide another vehicle either temporarily or replace the one they are unable to fix per the *****. This is a major safety issue with this car and it is unsafe to drive therefore it needs to be fix now not when they can get around to it.

Desired Settlement: Repair or replace

Consumer Response:

Please provide the VIN of the vehicle

VIN: *****************

•Please provide the name and contact information of the dealership you refer to in your complaint

Case #: ******** **** at the Customer Assistance Center
