Sorry tcup that beyond sucksSo arbitration of course did not find in my favor. Chrysler is claiming that the 3.5 yr long running issue of the van mysteriously going into hobble mode, usually at higher elevation, is probably bc of the camper build. Even though it started doing it before the build started. Even though it got way worse after it got an engine replacement. Even though in 3.5 years of service visits and SIX MONTHS in the shop just for that one issue, and the problem being escalated to the highest level of tech support at Chrysler, not one single person has suggested that any aspect of the camper build might be affecting the vehicle's many mechanical problems.
And CO lemon law only applies for 1 yr after purchase. And I stupidly waited until I was past the initial 3 yr warranty to even try to get any compensation.
Apparently in CA you can file lemon law for up to 4 years after purchase. Maybe I just need to move the van there....
In the meantime, the van is in the shop (shocker) and needs a $550 replacement of the brake cable. Even though I have been telling the service people since last summer (have proof in writing) that I was getting brake fluid errors, and the diesel is known for getting water in and wearing down the brake cable, which also gets more wear and tear since it doesn't have a P gear. But it didn't get looked at the many x I asked about it to begin with (probably bc they were always busy with the other issues) and now it's past the initial full warranty and I have to shell out for it.
Anyone have any suggestions for next steps?
