I drive a dodge, and i understand dodge's reputation. They are getting better, and working on this reputation problem. As far as the axle problem that was commented on. The same company makes Hummer, GM, and many other axles. We are talking millions of vehicles, with few failures. Sounds like a bad lot of axles got out there. Same exact thing with the valve springs. Vendor problems. I am by know means defending dodge cause i work for them. There front wheel cars got junk transmissions. I would never buy a front wheel drive chrysler product. Plus there is a lemon in every bunch, and all makes will have them also.
