  1. Flimsy steering

    Wheels/Tires/Brakes/Suspension (2011 +)
    Hello, just bought 2013 Charger (manufactured 12/2012) RT Plus, 5-speed auto, 30k miles. I noticed the steering wheel can be operated by a pinky if I so desired, it's very friction-less. I'm in Europe and I'm not very used to US cars, most cars here have some heft to the steering wheel, you...

  3. Steering Wheel Trim Ring Issue

    Interior Discussion/Modifications
    Hi all I've had an issue now twice with the chrome trim ring on my steering wheel peeling. We have other dodge vehicles without this issue and i only use Adam's on them to clean. Has anyone else had this issue?? I'm thinking of just swapping it out for a rebadge design one but am kind of...
  4. Dag Nammit - Thanks Daimler-Chrysler ...!

    General Charger Discussion
    Well I guess it had to happen at some point, but seriously!!! It would appear that the pulley to the power steering pump sometimes fails to stay correctly secured to the drive of the pump..... So there I was blasting up the M1 with SWMBO when curiously the 'charge' and 'battery' light...

    Charger Problems/Assistance (2011 +)
    Ladies and Gents, I was backing into my garage at a funky angle, and cranked the wheel to straighten it up into my space. I turned it till lock and my power steering went POOF! EVIC lit up saying "Service Power Steering" and of course....backing up took a little more effort than usual. So, I...
  6. Front Steering Shaft Disconnect (help!)

    Charger Problems/Assistance (2011 +)
    Well, tonight dropped and inch of snow, and it seemed to be the perfect time to practice some snow recovery maneuvers. (Being 18 and very foolish) The vehicle is a 2014 Dodge Charger R/T AWD I found out that the AWD system is rear biased. I hit a curb sideways at 3-5 mph, and a couple things...

  8. 11-13 Steering Wheel on 07

    Would it be possible to add a 11-13 steering wheel to the 07? What problems could this cause? Or would it be just a simple swap?
  9. 2008 R/T Power Steering Pump Noise

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    I have a 2008 Charger R/T with 47,000 miles. Lately I've noticed that my power steering pump is making a whining noise at around 2500 RPM that gets more noticable as the RPMs increases. It's really noticable if I have the car in park, give it some gas and turn the wheel back and forth. Let me...
  10. Steering Directed Lights

    General Charger Discussion
    I read through the owner's manual today for the 2011 Dodge Charger and notice the steering directed lights feature (Page 307). Dodge states when this feature is selected, the headlights turn relative to a change in direction of the steering wheel. This feature is not advertised on its official...

    My cruise control is not working and I've had 2 full diagnostics from different mechanics confirming that it's the cruise stalk (actual control lever) not working. Well, we ordered the switch and have now found that it's the part that the switch plugs into that is not working and the switch is...

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    My '08 Charger R/T AWD bought new has always drifted to the right. I returned to the dealer at 3000 miles and after he realigned it, not only was the steering dangerously light and twitchy, but there was no center-on spot and the car still drifted (though noticeably less than before). Fed up...
  13. Thinking About Changing Power Steering Fluid to Synthetic

    General Charger Discussion
    Like the title says - are there any particular brands I should stick with? What type should I get? I've noticed with the colder weather here (around 35 degrees in the morning) that my steering seems rather sluggish. Please don't make me read the manual :biggrinjester: What would you recommend...
  14. Suspension/Steering noises

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    '06 Charger R/T, bought used @ 28K miles, had it a few weeks now. In the past week, it's developed intermittent steering and, I think, suspension noise. Steering: SOMEtimes, (seems to be when at operating temp, not cold), I get a creak or groan in the steering & floorboards when turning the...
