Another American brand of automobile, Dodge has a long history, dating back to 1900. Based in Michigan, the company brought the term “dependability” to the car lexicon and even invented the first winterized car. Known for specializing in workhorse trucks, it has won several of the prestigious Consumer Guide for Automotive awards.
Yet, even with these accolades, Dodge is still subject to a faulty product. If your Dodge vehicle is not operating properly, even after repair attempts, you may have purchased a lemon.
