Hmmm...wonder why Chrysler is struggling...

My new 3 day old van is in the service department as I type. NOT HAPPY AT ALL! Tuesday morning Paul went out to start it and it wouldn't start. He actually had to jump it. Since then we haven't had any problems with it starting. Yesterday I noticed that the passenger door looked like it was open. I opened it, closed it again and there it was...a nice gap in the door. WHAT THE HELL! So, this morning we took it in to be looked at. Did I mention I am not happy AT ALL?? The service guy called me and said that there is nothing wrong and can't see what would cause it to die. They also alligned the door. I really can't believe that I had to take my brand new van in already. It is so wrong and makes me nervous. If this happened within 3 days, what should I expect in the next 3 months?? Hopefully nothing...I'll think positive!

Update:We picked up the van and the door looks much better. They told me I should have no problems. Knock on wood!! Now I can relax and enjoy my new ride~

oh isnt that the worst? I wonder if the door being ajar ran down the battery?? so maybe since they fixed the door now you will be good! crossing my fingers for you!
