2008 Dodge Avenger R/T Front Brake Issues
I have a 2008 Dodge Avenger R/T . I wanted to post my problems with this car since i had it now 2 years 22,000 miles. The brakes are having major problems in the front... The rotors were cut by the dealer at 12,000 miles for shaking and loud vibration/grind. My pads were checked and ok'd, The rotors were worped and need to be cut, they covered it luckly with a arguement. about 16-17,000 miles i got the shake back and loud noise again, went to the dealer and they said i need pads and rotors cut, They wanted $300+ to do this and they even billed me $99 to look at the brakes, i was pissed after being there for brake light sensor on, and also tire pressure light on, also other recalls. The problem is now i had another shop to replace the pads and cut the rotors for way less, problem is after 2 weeks they started to make clicking noise and weird clanks at slow stops. I brought it back and he put different pads and cut rotors again, didnt help becouse the noise came back. I couldnt deal with it anymore and today brought it to the dealer. The dealer said i need front and back rotors and pads. The price is $1250! I also had a airbag light on which is covered under warranty. I cant believe after having the pads replace and rotors cut they said i need all the brake rotors and pads. The back brakes they said were fine a few weeks ago, all of a sudden they need to be replaced? lol Sounds like a good salesman trying to make commision of me. Well i said do the front for $625 and thats it, also i got some funny rubberband click in the steering wheel turning or accelerate which is annoying and its there being checked at the dealer as we speak. I am sooo mad as this is a lease and all ive had was problems and spending money for things! The only reason i brought it back to the dealer is to get the brake warranty for one yearif they do it so i can take it back to them 10 more times. Its $625 for the front brakes but 1 more year my lease is up and im giving the car in. This is my 3rd lease through chrysler. Ive had jeeps and problems with brakes and engines as well and took a chance at a dodge. I love my avenger but im fed up with the problems.
