In two weeks I have my lemon law arbitrator session against DM. Main issue is the right pull and tire wear that 7 alignments and two sets of tires in 16,000 miles have not solved. DM blames on the Conti's and is sticking by their "normal crown sensitivity" defense. I would sincerely appreciate hearing from anyone who has filed for lemon law for the same problems. Did you win the case and , if not, what was the reason given....what happened after you lost... any other details are greatly appreciated. If their are any readers that DM "did the right thing" and gave a new vehicle without a fight I would love to hear from you also. Thanks for your help.

I wish I could offer more than support, no info here. Blame the Contis? Who evaluated and selected the Contis for this car. I have learned to live with crown sensitivity but not happy with it. How could they have missed the right pull, really how is that possible. I seriously doubt anyone in a decision making position drove this car pre production, if they did they are clearly oblivious or plain stupid.

II kings 9:20,

Trust me, "they are clearly oblivious and plain stupid". I also have a pre-ordered 2003 Nissan 350Z. Almost all of these cars (2003 thru 2005) eat the front tires and Nissan seems to be unwilling to fix the problem. So it just isn't Chrysler that has all of the "oblivious and plain stupid" people working for them.

I wonder if anyone has successfully gotten a replacement set under OEM mileage warranties.

I have read numerous statements wheras people have recieved new tires as a result of premature wear. The key is to go to a Conti dealer. If you read the warranty, it will give you the details. If I'm not mistaken, the tires are warrranteed for 60000 miles.

That was actually one of the points i brought up during my arbitration meeting. I whipped out the TSB, and asked what was going on with Toyota's Quality assurance, when they have to release a general TSB to cover all of their cars and light trucks for the last 5 yrs. She didn't respond and pretty much sunk herself after that when she asked to test drive the truck to feel the "So called drift". She couldn't get it to drive straight on the road as i imagined would happen. Then during closing arguments, she said although there is a very "SLIGHT" drift it's not severe enough to cause a safety concern. NO! But it is slight enough to be a manufacturers concern and possibly a defect, which i as a consumer shouldn't have to deal with....
