Hey hey !!! New here ! .. glad to know I am not alone in the problems I have been facing with my beloved car. I, like so many others have noticed the bubble that formed in the top left corner of my radio, which has now spread over the majority of my screen.. and of course here comes the phantom touches and other issues that make u wanna punch tf out of it.. but of course I refrain because I really love this car .. now to add insult to injury of course.. the door panel on the front passenger side I guess felt the need to wave as it is now detached at the top and has a huge gap between itself and the door Frame... I'm guessing the had a fight (forgive me.. corny jokes ..tryna keep from crying by smiling)... well often it scratches people when hanging arm out the door.. I know dangerous right? Lol ..or myself when I'm cleaning the car .. recently contacted dodge and was told I have exceeded past my warranty and there for to fix it myself but to save my receipts just in case they develop a warranty ... in case ... they .. develop a warranty .. which by looks of it isnt going to happen . I say we start a petition to get these things fixed .. these are issues that are not inflicted by negligence or normal wear and tear ... why should we be responsible for something that is clearly a default in their manufacturing process? .. my warranty was out when I bought the car and don't see how this isn't being covered ..especially if these issues aren't occurring till after the warranty goes out .. I was so proud to have my charger .. its more than just a car to me it's my safe place..where I go when I'm stressed.. when u think of dodge u don't think of cheaply made cars.. u think of super bad ass muscle car .. I may not been able to get the srt my heart was set on but im proud of what I could get .. and to have these issues is problematic and embarrassing.. so I'm curious.. how many people are having these same issues and is willing to help me if I start a petition .. if we get enough people to actually speak up they have no choice but to hear us and hopefully make a change and fix these problems.. these by far are not cheap cars and surely not cheap to fix .. why be held responsible for something that isn't caused by us ? .. im done rambling hope I have made it bearable and hope I can get as many of u to stand up with me !

WELCOME from North-Central Florida. Call FCA at 1-800-992-1997 and see what they're willing to do for you. Be firm, but "try" to be nice!:devilish:

Thank you so much! u responding and helping me in reaching them is soo appreciated.. but.... as the same with the response from the email I received from them .. no luck and no help... they claim not enough people have reported the issue and the warranty being expired and so forth nothing they can do for me...though nice and completely stern with what I had to say it seemed more like a joke to them and they don't care .. so wondering if the petition will help .. if I get enough people

I don't have a lot of faith in them either. They almost sound like a glorified escort service! Your petition just might be your only resort other than forking out some cash from your own pocket.

I was thinking the same thing... but given I haven't gotten much reaction or opinions from others on this post ... doesn't look like I'll get far if I start one .. I really appreciate all ur help and encouragement.. finding people to share the same passion for this car has been hard out here

Yes, don't bother with dealers, just file a formal complaint with FCA.
I called them yesterday..filed a complaint but was told nothing they can do because my car is out of warranty .. but it was when I got it ...and was told to save receipts in case of a recall in the future :(

Hey cupcake welcome to the lower rungs of hell where multinational corporations pretend they don't know anything about certain issues. As far as the screen delamination and the ghosting issue I've had the same problem since just about the time my car was new I have an 18 SXT also. There's a class action suit active for this issue in pacificas the Chrysler minivan made by Dodge. I have heard of your other issue on other threads not necessarily the 2018 charger thread there's other ones and just general charger ones where I've heard about the delamination of the door plastic by the window that seems to be a common issue too. keep calling them and mention the words class action lawsuit that will get people's attention let me know how it works out for you good luck.

Thanks so much.. when I called them the other day she listened to everything I had to say but in the nicest way possible basically was like this is your problem since it's past your warranty.. which was already expired when I got this car ... but that it was good I called in the complaint ..and that any out of pocket expenses for these issues I should save my receipts just in case of a recall .. the only thing I think is going to get them moving on this is if enough people call them with the same complaints or maybe as I mentioned if I can get enough people with the same issues to sign a petition..but even then seems like a far shot of them caring enough to do anything
