Chrysler LLC My 2007 Dodge Dakota jumped out of gear and ran over me. Auburn Hills Michigan!!
On March 1, 2008, I pulled my 2007 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4×4 into my driveway. I left the truck running and the lights on while I let my little dog out and unloaded some supplies. When I was through I reached in and turned off the key. At that point the truck started rolling backwards. I couldn’t get away from the door and it drug me about 12 feet down my driveway then ran over my left arm. I also had abrasions on both knees, the knuckles of my right hand and a 12 inch bruise across both hips. I am still receiving treatment on my arm for nerve and muscle damage. I contacted Chrysler and they sent a mechanic to check my truck but told us nothing was wrong with it. The service manager where we bought the truck said the parking pawl didn’t go all the way into park, it stopped between park and reverse. With the truck running it had enough forward pull to keep it from rolling but when I turned the key off it lost that pull and began rolling. The service manager said my truck has the same transmission, the 42 RLE, as the 2005 Dakota that was recalled but was supposed to be fixed. It is not fixed and has been a on going problem. How many people has to be injured or killed before they fix the problem? I believe that Chrysler is responsible for my injuries because they have a unsafe product. Freda Williford, ArkansasU.S.A.
