'00 Dodge Neon, Brake Squeals and water Leaks
I own a 2000 Dodge Neon. I have two problems that I was wondering if you
ever heard of: 1. The brakes squeal very loud when I come to a stop, after
the car has set for about 3 hours or so. 2. Water leaks to the rear passenger
floor. I have taken it to the dealer multiple times and was told nothing
could be done. Any advice would be appreciated.
love that answer, "Nothing can be done". If a dealer is telling
you that nothing can be done, they're telling you they don't care. With
an answer like that the first thing I'd do is no business with that shop.
Brake noise can be torture at times to get rid of but there is a solution.
Water leaking into the passenger compartment is just not acceptable! Water
leaking into the vehicle will cause to vehicle to rot/rust from the inside
out. Not to mention the mold spores that will grow. With that in mind
and many visits to the dealer that says nothing can be done, you must
have lemon! If you have a lemon then it is time to check on your state's
lemon law. You didn't buy a swimming pool you bought a car, so they should
buy it back.
