With over a century of manufacturing automobiles, the Dodge brand is a ubiquitous presence in the auto industry, selling hundreds of thousands of vehicles in the U.S. every year. Although they maintain an image of tough, resilient automobiles, not all come off the assembly line that way. Over the years, there’s been news of a few Dodge recalls, like the Ram truck recall. And we’ve seen more than a few clients with Dodge lemons. If you’re experiencing persistent issues with your Dodge, you may have a lemon and could qualify for a Dodge buyback or other form of compensation.
While Dodge lemon laws may differ from state to state, the bottom line remains clear: if a Dodge manufacturer is unable to honor their warranty, the consumer deserves compensation. Your car could be covered under a Dodge recall list, like the Ram recall, or it could be a lemon we’ll help you figure out the best course of action for your Dodge so you can get the settlement you deserve.
We’ve seen some similar issues across Dodge lemon law cases, which we’ve noted below. There’s a chance your car could also be part of a Dodge recall, like the Dodge Ram recall. Most recently, recalled Ram trucks have had problems that could cause the tailgate to pop open while on the road. If your Dodge is a lemon, the issues you’re experiencing could include:
Even if your Dodge meets the criteria needed to be considered a lemon, a Dodge manufacturer may still argue against this, which is why it’s important not to pursue your case alone. Here at Lemon Law Now, we have a team of highly experienced attorneys who have successfully settled hundreds of cases like yours. Remember, you’ll never pay out-of-pocket legal fees when you work with us, so there’s no reason not to contact us today.
In Dodge lemon law, the Dodge manufacturer has the opportunity to make a reasonable number of repairs before your vehicle is deemed a lemon. This helps ensure that the Dodge manufacturer doesn’t take an unlimited amount of time or attempts at fixing your Dodge at a certain point you need to be able to take action and get the Dodge lemon buyback or compensation you deserve. While Dodge lemon laws differ from state to state, in California a reasonable number of attempts have been made if:
If this criterion has been met, you may have a lemon and are eligible for a Dodge lemon buyback.
The realities of a recall notice are that, while many may overlook, cast aside and view them as a burden, they’re designed to protect drivers from known automobile manufacturer faults and can mitigate the risk of injury for drivers and passengers alike. Sure, finding the time to take your Dodge into the dealership and have the issue taken care of can seem like a hassle, but it’s time well spent to ensure the safety of your Dodge and your family.
How exactly does a recall even work? When a Dodge is brought into the dealership with a faulty piece of equipment with issues beyond normal wear and tear, dealerships record these issues in their log. Dodge Manufacturers track these problems to spot patterns across vehicle makes and models. When something appears abnormal, they investigate extremely detailed manufacturing logs to identify when and where the problem may have stemmed from. Once they determine precisely what vehicles are affected and how to resolve the faulty equipment, they issue a recall to owners of vehicles from the specified time period and typically send notice by mail to affected customers.
Dodge Manufacturers will typically resolve recall issues free of charge, but they’re not always able to reach out to customers, particularly when the customer is not the original owner of the Dodge. This places a premium on Dodge owners to stay as up to date as possible on pending recalls and have their Dodge serviced immediately. Manufacturer websites will often post recalls direct on their page, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration frequently posts recall information as well; all you need is your VIN to track pertinent info related to your Dodge.
If you’re the owner of a Dodge truck, car, or SUV, some recent recalls to consider for your utmost safety include:
The company announced in September 2018 that upwards of 4,200 Dodge Ram 1,500 trucks may have left their manufacturing plants with an insufficient level of rear axle fluid. Dodge dealerships have been informed of the recall and mechanics have been instructed to measure the level of fluid in the rear axle and, if inadequate, replace the entire rear axle assembly at no cost to the Dodge owner.
Dodge & FCA claimed that upon investigating 11 warranty claims filed the previous month from Ram 1500 owners, they became aware of the issue. Of the nearly 4,200 Dodge Rams being recalled, it is expected that less than fifty will require a full rear axle reassembly.
2018 Dodge Journey’s manufactured between April 12 and June 14, as well as 2018-2019 Dodge Grand Caravan’s manufactured between April 11 and June 14 are being recalled. An issue related to the rear brake-caliper pistons could lead to reduced performance and cause a potential safety problem with the Dodge. To correct the issue, dealers will drain and refill the brake fluid system at no charge to customers.

I spoke directly to Mr. Shainfeld who helped guide me through the lemon law process. He was always responsive to me both via phone and emails. He was prompt and professional. Hopefully I do not have any further issues with my car in the future, but if I do I will contact Shainfeld Law.

Brett and his team was truly amazing to work with. From my very first contact through their chat capabilities on their website to the very last conversation with Brett. Being our first lemon claim for our 2018 Audi e-tron we were intimidated by what the process could be and didn’t know what to expect. Brett and his team made everything so easy to understand and seamless.

Brett was truly amazing to work with. Everything was so easy — from our initial call to the very last conversation. This was our very first lemon claim (2018 Audi e-tron) and was slightly intimidated by what the process could be and didn’t know what to expect. Brett and his team made everything so easy to understand and seamless. He’s quick, efficient, very reliable. He is super clear up front with the process and quickly answers any questions you have. I would highly recommend Brett if you are looking for lemon law attorney. We couldn’t have done it without him.
Everything Was So Easy
After the torture we went through with our dealership on our Lemon Law car and the subsequent challenge of trying to find a responsive, knowledgeable attorney to represent our case, we were at our wit’s end and highly skeptical when we found Brett Shainfeld. However, we found Brett to be clear, communicative, immediately responsive and confident. He adapted quickly to our preferred mode of communication (electronic or voicemail, rather than live discussions), and consistently kept us informed as to what was happening with our case, as well as what to expect next. And the best part is that he successfully negotiated our case with the manufacturer.
Brett was the best attorney we’ve had the opportunity to work with. If we ever need a Lemon Law attorney again, we won’t hesitate to use Brett. He’s very conscientious, keeping us appraised of what’s going on. If we leave a message or e-mail for him, he’d respond to is in a very timely manner.
