After purchasing this car new for over $40,000 and then fighting for 3 long years for justice, owners Joe and Kate were DONE with their unreliable, unsave Dodge Journey.
They couldn’t trust it to transport their family safely, but couldn’t bring themselves to sell it to another unsuspecting customer, so the RAN A TANK OVER IT! The importer, Fiat Chrysler Australia tried all the dirty tricks to make this go away, including writing to the media and some politicians, telling them that the vehicle had not been inspected.
We confirmed that they had the vehicle 3 months before this event to inspect it and at the time all they offered was to fix the DVD player and replace an engine mount! (seriously!) The owners suddenly got a call offering another inspection 3 days before the event (after pleading with them for 3 years), we suspect they were just trying a stalling tactic to stop the event from happening.
Australia needs lemon laws, please share this far and wide to help raise awareness for the need for stronger laws in Australia to protect the consumer and stop the games that some importers and dealers try. via
