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.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

If a Check Engine Light illuminates indicating leak detection pump (LDP) failure, the cause is often pinched or disconnected vacuum lines to the pump. Vacuum lines should be inspected before replacing the leak detection pump. Contamination (carbon or debris) in the pump can cause failure and any hoses should be cleared before a new pump is installed.

Brakes -- Verified

There was a recall to replace the vacuum hose for the brake booster. In the presence of oil, the original hose could swell and become disconnected. The brakes would function but power assist would be lost and the pedal would feel very hard.

Engine -- Verified

There was a problem with porous cylinder head castings that allowed oil to leak into the coolant. The low oil pressure light would come on intermittently due to low oil level and excessive oil could be found in the coolant reservoir. A new cylinder head would be needed.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The sunroof may open only to the vent position and close, or it may open to the vent position and get stuck. This may occur after the sunroof was operated at high freeway speeds, which applies excessive force to the sunroof mechanism. The sunroof mechanism will need to be disassembled and reassembled, replacing mechanism parts as needed.
