I have a 2013 Dodge Charger RT with 28k miles, I bought new in 12/2012. Brought in to dealer for shimmy and vibration in steering wheel when braking mostly at low speeds. Diagnosis was front brake pads need to be replaced and front rotors had hairline cracks and also need replacing. I was surprised that none of this work was covered by my warranty and I had to pay for everything. They claimed I braked the car too hard causing the issue. My argument is why put all that HP in a car if they don't expect people to use it. Brembo's are placed in SRT's but an RT with 5.7 liter has same brakes as a 6 cylinder. The current Dodge commercial has the Dodge Brothers racing each other in different Dodge vehicles, they give the aura of High Performance but don't expect people to stop their car. I wrote a letter to Chrysler about two weeks ago but have not heard back, must have feel on deaf ears. I understand the pads would be my responsibility but does anyone know if the rotors could be covered under the 3 year 36k mile warranty? Thanks.
