The first time that it happened this is what the workorder said "Caliper sticking, left brake pull under hard braking, replaced caliper and bled system". After I got it back and it did it again the work order said "brake pads and rotors, replaced front brake pads and rotors, seated pads". During this time it took them forever to diagnose the issue. They worked with the engineers at chrysler and i am pretty sure that they had them swap the left rotor and pads to the right side and vice versa. When i took the truck out with the mechanic it went hard to the right. They then put new rotors and pads on it. ever since then the vehicle drifts to the right. Here is the video.



I have not noticed a fuel problem so far haha I will probobly look into that and see if mine does the same.

as a old aircraft mechanic , i would look closer to the hyd part not rotors or pads, we fought anti-skid problems for years due to module pressure differences and anti skid control units.

If you have problems and they are not corrected check your State lemon laws. Where I am they get three chances to fix the same issue then you can start the lemon law process. I had no problems with my 05 and to many to list with my 11 left me stranded several times. But no problems yet with the 13 Longhorn other than the fact that the battery can not keep up with the gadget load if you only drive short drives.

I have already submitted my paperwork at three attempts to chrysler, never never replied back to me in writing. I had to call them to get the info on what was going on. At that time I found out that they were denying my claim stating that the repairs do not effect the value of the truck....well at 31 buisness days I got an attorney and he wrote them a letter stating it was a Lemon, they wanted to give me a very measily amount (i.e. less than one truck payment) for my inconvienience and me still keep the truck as is and continue paying...obviously I did not accept the deal, they asked for one more repair chance and I gave it to them however the Chysler reps just basically said no issue to everything because there were no codes even though you see the videos that something is going on. get my truck back after they look at it and 5 days later, more electrical issues and another stereo. now I am at 38 days in the shop, 5 brake visits, 3 radio visits and a handfull of other problems. Ill let ya know what happens at the beginning of this next week when my attorney submits my new repair order to dodge asking them one last time to repurchase or I go a different route

hahaha that is the first thing I said to them when they went to replace all those components. The new dodges have an emergency brake booster that is connected to the abs, traction control, stability control and main computer. It changes braking pressure while the breaks are applied. It makes sense to me that if something is wrong with the electronics of the computer that it could be telling the module to increase pressure to one side, or on the other side of the coin if one side is not applying enough pressure it could try to componsate and make the other side "catch up"

They hate doing buy backs especially under lemon laws as then they have to list the vehicle as a buy back if they try and resale it. Basically the vehicle is useless to them if they do a buy back that is why they fight it so hard. Stick to your guns through the process and make sure your attorney goes for his fees from them in the process. Nothing against Dodge/Fiat the same applies to any manufacturer they should stand behind their product and make it right when they can not figure out what is wrong with a vehicle.

I have waited & waited for the original poster to come back with whatever happened with their situation

Was it repaired, buy back, set on fire, or whatever ??

I wish the people that have issues would follow through with a Thread once they start it
then we all could have that bit of information stored in our brains or at least on the RamforumZ servers for reference

Have you had the displeasure of speaking with the Customer I don't care center yet? I have been dealing with those people for 4 months now and all they seem to be able to offer is an oil change.

I will definately follow through with the outcome of my situation. I agree that it is rather frustrating when you start a good thread then all the sudden it stops. The more people that are informed the better
