Did you purchase your car "AS IS"?????

I think this may be driven by fluid, take the back seat out as shown in the video. if the 2005 is electric I think it is mounted in the same location and should be any easy fix. You can pick one up in a junk yard.

So, you did purchase this car "as is" with no warranty?? I'm surprised that Car Max would sell a car in that kind of condition, therefore,. I would not even consider them reliable.. how much did you pay??

In general, Chrysler cars are not reliable.... Next time, look at an Asian car like Honda, Toyota, or Subaru.
