These are obviously not original tires for my vehicle. And honestly I don't even know if these are the appropriate tires for my vehicle.

Only the left side is not working, I replaced the bulb and the fuse and its still not working!

It's been 2 years in 2014, my passenger side window/lock just stop working.. I guess it's just me and never cared but when friends sit in back it would be nice to let them have window down.. Is this a issue wth Nitro's? I own it .. I guess I should get it fixed took to Firestone tech worked on truck 2 hours couldn't find problem I guess now I'm go have to bite he bullet an pay $125.. So dodge can check it out I have replaced my 2 front struts/brakes rotors/muffler/sway link bar/serpentine belt 3 times/and just had water pump put ok Friday 7/29/16.. Now check engine light came on , it's an 07 basic model 3.7 engine, I got it when they 1st came out.. Do not have larger engine .. Had 3 recalls just one issue after another.. What could be the issue now catalytic converter?.. So sick of all these issues, truck paid off may have to just get a newer vehicle and advice?

Had belt replaced twice within about 6 months still get noise sick of so many issues with this truck one after another but it is a 07 with 197,000 so I guess it's time to replace or is this a problem that all Nitro's have?

I recently purchased this vehicle. Drove it home from the dealership when attempting to start it the next day, it had little to no power, started misfiring, so I turned it around and parked it. It had to be towed back to the dealership where are they check it out. And I was told it was due to misfiring spark plugs which two of them were replaced. Drove get home. Took it 2 an appointment the next morning where I can be check engine light came on. So I took it back to the dealership. So I took it back to the dealership. They told me I could use one of their vehicles and they would do a thorough check. 3 days later I picked up the vehicle and was told they replace the catalytic converter and gave me a blank warranty slip. My vehicle still runs extremely rough and sounds and feels as if it wants to stall. I told the dealership it still smells like rotten eggs and they told me it was a gas I was putting in. I've only put gas in this vehicle twice and it has been premium both times.

doors will not lock and the back gate a stays open/unlocked all the time

I brought the vehicle to my mechanics 3 times in the past month and a half for this issue. The first time they repaired the gas cap and something (i forget what) and the issue was seemingly fixed. However, the ABS ESP BAS and Engine lights came back on a week or two later. I took it back to the shop and told nothing was wrong with the car. The guy indicated that i may have slipped on ice and stated that all the lights were off in the car. Approximately one day later the engine light comes on and the odometer said gas cap again. Two weeks after that the ABS BAS ESP Engine and Break are illuminated on the dashboard. I took back in and this time informed that i needed a new control module (??) The mechanic said the lights will remain on but that the car is drivable for now. Additionally, i was told that the estimated cost to replace the control module is $3,000 :-o

Does this sound right??? I know nothing about cars.....

Any feedback on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
