Cars Mechanics Hate – Car Pro News

Mechanics just hate some cars, says Web2Carz — vehicles that vex even masterful technicians and do it repeatedly.

The online magazine compiled a list of cars that it says mechanics see too often.
Here are the first five:

1997-2010 Chrysler Town & Country minivans: Problems include transmission failures, steering and water pump failures, leaking radiators and malfunctioning electric door locks.

2002-09 Ford Explorer: Problems include slipping transmissions, cracking body panels, leaking radiators and engine stalls while idling.

2006-08 Pontiac G6 Coupe: Problems include faulty power steering and interior headliners that fall down.

2002-03 Chevrolet Impala: Problems include the electrical system and faulty intake manifolds.

2001-03 Dodge Ram: Problems include cracking dashboards, engine seizures because of oil sludge, leaking radiators and faulty head gaskets.

    I own a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad-Cab pickup that I bought new. About 2009 the dashboard started cracking and has continued to deteriorate since then. I contacted Dodge and other dealerships and checked websites about other people having the same problem. They all say Dodge refuses to recall and/or admit there is a problem. Why won’t Dodge honor and admit they produced/installed a defective product and do the right thing by their customers?

      I cannot tell you why unfortunately. But a couple of thoughts are that the Chrysler that exists today is not the same company that it was when your truck was made a dozen years ago. Sounds like you had the truck 7 years before you started to have a problem, and depending on where you live, that sounds pretty reasonable if your truck sits in the sun a lot.

      Honestly, I don’t know of any automaker that would cover something after that much time.

      Thanks for listening to the show!
