Did you get the recall taken care of? I had mine done and they didn't blead the brakes properly and the peddle dropped to the floor. Turned around and they took care of things.

Well, that's what they give us a warranty for, not! It would be nice to know that we'd never have to go back to the dealership except for basic service, but...
I've had key issues but found a quick fix here on the site that seemed to take care of the intermittent issues I was having. By popping the fob apart and ckeaning the contact patch on the battery and snapping it back together, all seems well.
Good luck as you get things checked out.

My 2010 1500 hemi does the same thing. I can hit the brakes and the pedal is almost stiff and most of the time they work great. The other day a Deer ran out in front of me and I had to do some stunt driving to miss it and they worked great. At my driveway when I went to slow down the pedal felt like it was locked up. The dealer has no Idea about the problem. One of the guys on this site said it sounds like a brake booster to him. If I pump them they work again.
