Here in Ohio, it does not state it needs to be safety or other. It can be anything that keeps the car in the shop.I'd suspect you can't lemon law the vehicle as it isn't a safety defect, but state laws vary. I'd be happy to be having a free rental. Admittedly, I'd be upset about my not so new vehicle. Give them a chance to rectify the situation. Also, consider opening a case with Dodge, and maybe a goodwill offering like a new car or lifetime factory extended warranty will come your way. Most of all, be nice.
In the first year or first 18,000 miles, whichever occurs first:
• Have three or more attempts been made to repair one problem and then the problem either continues to exist or occurs again?
• Has the vehicle been in the shop for a cumulative total of 30 days or more during its first year or 18,000 miles, whichever occurs first?
• Have eight or more attempts been made to fix different problems?
• Has one unsuccessful attempt been made to fix a problem that could cause death or serious injury?
You need to look up your states lemon laws. I would be demanding they pay my monthly payment at the very least or as he said, a lifetime factory. Mention the words BBB and State Attorney and you will get somewhere.
I love mopar and dodge as much as the next person and want to see them succeed but they need to step up and take care of the issues people are having on their vehicles if they want to compete with the big boys like Toyota. I have a brand new SRT and its in the shop now as we speak (second time). Love the car.. but its testing my patience as its my daily at the moment.
