    I have a 2004 as well and I have been reading on the internet that there is a problem with the cowling on the hood where when it rains really hard, it leaks down into the engine and rusts things and causes the engine to fail it starts out ticking, the check engine light comes on and then you will experience stalling, just be driving down the road and it will stall and disable the power steering and brakes. Chrysler knows about this but refuses to recall it. Kinda like GM. I was driving down the street, made a turn and was almost hit by the guy in back of me because my car just stalled and I could not steer it or brake contact Dodge, they are saying not enough people are reporting it and that is why they have not recalled. Eventually, the engine will let out a large bang when you go to start it and then it will never start again. The end. Sorry. I'm pissed too.
