Cleaner/Disinfectant Issued to Address Musty Odor in AC System

Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

Locked up WCM may cause engine cranking problems

If the engine does not crank (or cranks but won't start), the wireless control module (WCM) may have locked up. This is due to static discharge through the ignition key. A revised model should be installed, but simply disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for thirty seconds will temporarily reset the module so you can start the car.

Multifunction Turn Signal Switch May Fail

A defective turn signal lever (multifunction switch) can cause erratic operation of the turn signals and other exterior lights. Depending on the fault, a dead battery could result. Our technicians recommend replacing the failed switch.

At 62000 miles no real problems. Replaced 2 tail lights, the plastic cover on the left side of the drivers seat replaced 2 times. the worst is gas mileage. local driving around 20. long trips the most 27 per gallon. I also have a Neon and it gets 26 around town and up to 38 on long trips. Same engine type. It must be the design or body style.
I've had the front brakes done twice....excuse given to me was because I drive in the city alot on hills. I replaced all four tires and had them rotated once. Oil change every 3000 miles. Now I have a shimmy in the front end so that is my next fix it job. The car has been reliable. Had a check engine light on once, took it to the dealer, nothing found.....reset it and I was on my way again....
