    I did,FCA reps are about useless and tell you each time you call that they will expedite the case and a manager will call you in 3-4 days and it goes on and on. Next time will be lawyer time.Once you finally do talk to a mgr things work pretty fast with the refund anyway.I've dealt with GM and Ford and never will I deal with FCA idiots again.They lie to you every chance they get.

    Can't blame you at all for feeling the way you do. Once someone treats you that way, it is no going back.

    I'm surprised we have not heard more of this over the past years.

    I wonder if they have any idea what percentage of the cars, in the range of years, could be affected by this problem.? I suppose they wouldn't know. Only that the potential problem exists.
    I've had my 2011 Dodge Charger for 6 1/2 years with no signs of a problem that I'm aware of.

    I hear 1.3 million FCA vehicles with electro-hydraulic steering have alternator problems because of electrical load.Cheap diodes in alternator is all it is

    440,000+ vehicles is the figure being posted most places.

    Paid a visit to my dealership today, customer service rep. said it will be March or April before parts are available, I told him I am starting to loose faith in Dodge, he said all the manufacturers use one supplier, I don"t believe that. I will call an alternator shop that I use and see what he thinks about replacing the diodes.

    It sucks and I am in the same situation. I don't really blame Dodge, they didn't build the alternators. I'm sure their is only a couple of suppliers. Look at the airbag recall, they supplied lots od manufactures. I blame it on Chinese crap.
