Model Year Affected: 2007

Average Mileage: 68,301 mi (20,200 mi - 195,000 mi)


The front of the roof rack may begin lifting from the roof. Replacing the adhesive tape at the front of the side rails should correct this concern.

    Roof rack lifting and broken. Called my local Dodge dealer and is going to cost $350 for parts and labor..Should have had a recall on this to be replaced! Now it is passed on to the consumer to take care of.. Double back tape to hold down a roof rack.?? Really!! Come on Dodge can't you do better than that.. This will be the last Dodge I own..
