New Jersey & Pennsylvania Dodge Lemon Law Attorney

Although the quality of Fiat Chrysler’s Dodge vehicles has improved over the years, many models are still prone to defects that lead to technical service bulletins and recalls. If you own or lease a Dodge Charger, Challenger, Dart, Viper, Journey, Durango, Grand Caravan, or Ram pickup that has been in for multiple repairs while it was under a manufacturer’s warranty, you may have a valid Lemon Law claim.

Timothy Abeel & Associates, P.C. routinely represents Dodge customers in Lemon Law claims throughout all of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Trenton. Our experienced consumer law attorneys are well versed in applicable state lemon laws and federal warranty law and can help you obtain significant compensation.

Dodge Recalls

Dodge customers have complained about a wide range of defects such as faulty brake pads and rotors, acceleration problems, vibrating axles, brakes and steering columns, cruise control malfunctions, transmission and engine leaks, electrical issues and many others. Fiat Chrysler  has issued numerous recalls of Dodge sedans, SUVS and pickup trucks over the years.

  • In May 2017, more than 1.25 million Ram pickup trucks were recalled worldwide due to  a software glitch that can cause airbags and seatbelts to fail during rollover crashes. The recall includes 1.02 million 2013-2016 Ram 1500 and 2500 pickups and 2014-2016 Ram 355 trucks sold in the United States. To resolve the problem, dealers have been instructed to reprogram the onboard sensors.
  • In July 2015, Fiat Chrysler announced a buyback of about 578,000 Dodge Ram pickup trucks and Dodge SUVs that went unrepaired after multiple recalls during which which some owners waited more than 18 months for repairs related to steering issues.
  • In May 2015, 2003 model-year Ram 1500, 2,500 and 3500 pickup trucks were recalled due to a safety defect in the passenger-side front airbag inflator which produced excessive internal pressure, causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment, sending dangerous fragments into the cabin that could lead to injury and death.

Other Complaints about Dodge Vehicles

Currently, the problems continue to mount as there have been numerous ongoing complaints. One of the most  common, for example, is with the exterior accessories of the Dodge Durango and Charger, in addition to problems with the air conditioning/heating units.

Problems have also been reported with the 2017 Challenger drivetrain while the Dodge Dart has been prone to engine failures. Meanwhile the Journey has had longstanding problems with the fuel systems, cooling systems, steering, transmission and other malfunctions while the Grand Caravan has been prone to electrical problems, transmission issues and fuel system problems.
