Dodge Charger Problems

Rough Idle, shuttering.

I purchased a 2010 dodge charger sxt with 42k miles.. after a week of owning it, it developed a rough idle and occasional shutter and hesitation during acceleration and braking. Rough Idle upon leaving the brakes from a stop, and slow down from fast speeds. Rough Idle around 550RPMs until about 900,1000 RPMs. Have had brakes, throttle body, idle valve, engine mounts, brakes checked, rotors and discs all checked and resulted in no concern on t...

PCM/TCM Software Updates Will Address Shifting Problems

If you experience rough shift and/or shuddering during gear shifting, software updates to the powertrain control and transmission control modules (PCM and TCM) are available which may address these problems. On higher mileage vehicles, a mechanical failure may exhibit similar symptoms. Proper diagnoses should be performed before any repairs or software upgrades are attempted.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Thermostat

The thermostat may fail to close completely, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This problem will prevent the engine from reaching normal operating temperature; a new thermostat should be installed.

Vehicle Does Not Notify When Not In Park With The Door Open

The vehicle may not notify the occupants that the vehicle is not shifted to the park position when a door is opened, resulting in an occupant not knowing that the vehicle is not secured in park, the vehicle possibly rolling away and risking injury. Dealers will update the vehicle software to mitigate the risk of vehicle roll-away free of charge to resolve the concern.

Vehicle May Fall Using Supplied Tire Jack

When using the supplied tire jack without chocking the wheels, the vehicle's body side sill may give out and cause the tire jack to fail and the car to fall. Dealers will provide owners with wheel chocks free of charge to resolve the concern.

Side Air Bag Curtains And Seat Air Bags May Deploy Unintentionally

The side air bag curtains and seat air bags may deploy unintentionally due to the side impact sensors being calibrated improperly. Dealers will update the occupant restraint control module calibration free of charge to resolve the problem.

I have a 2007 Dodge Charger, it's been half a year they can't fix my car or can't find the problem to it. First the car wouldn't move nothing, so we took it to a mechanic guy who said it was the transmission. So we got the transmission, but then later the car wouldn't run more then 40. Long story short they put a new computer that probably that was the issue. Once again the same, we had changed...

I have the SXT model with the 6-cylinder 3.5L HO (High Output) engine with the 4-speed 42RLE Chrysler transmission. This car is really fun to drive. Lots of power (250h, which really is impressive for a 6cyl) engine has a nice subtle "purr" to it during normal driving, but at a quick acceleration and WOT (wide open throttle) you can definitely here the engine growl. strong brakes make for a ...
