Takata recall when ignition turned off keep getting alert saying that key is still in ignition causing my electrical system to fail. It is not allowing me to readjust mirrors or anything. Any electrical connection isn't working due to error message saying key is still in ignition. I locked my keys in the car several times due to this issue and I am afraid to drive far due to the electrical failure please look into this. The vehicle was running when the electrical failure began and I was over 300 miles away from home.

The contact owns a 2014 Chrysler 200. The contact stated that the power steering failed and the vehicle stalled. The contact took the vehicle to the elkgrove Dodge dealer where it was diagnosed that the power steering failed. The vehicle was repaired, but the contact was unsure of the exact repair.

The contact had the vehicle towed to the dealer. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired a third time. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and opened several cases regarding the matter.

After only 3 years the totally integrated power module failed on my 2014 Chrysler 200. It's a $1,400 fix. For a major system to go in 3 years has to be a manufacturer defect and they should held liable for it.

My car had a issue with one of the ignition coils malfunctioning causing the part to melt completely melt through the valve cover in Dec. 2016. This caused the car to stop while in motion and once I steered it off road, it smoked badly. At this time the car had about 52000 miles on it. As of June 2017, the recall dealing with the seatbelts and airbags have not been fixed nor looked at. I allowed the car to be returned via repo because I was out of nearly $1000 dollars paying the dealer to fix the car and pay for my own rental for two weeks while the Corp. Office send the ok for it to be fixed!!

Takata recall...I haven't experienced any accident's and I pray I don't, however I do not feel safe at driving this car knowing the defects that can possibly go wrong in it. I have kids that are my main priority always in the car with me and I'll hate to be in an accident and these defects take place this is not a chance I'm willing to take since I've found out these issues. As of now I'm showing that there is no resolution for the issues so I'm wanting to see about trading this vehicle in asap.

The tire sensor (TPMS light) for my passenger side, rear tire always says the tire pressure is low as well. It will say the tire is low, and it's always only this tire. I check the pressure with a hand gauge and all is fine. This vehicle obviously has some sort of electrical issue. I have had mulitipule issues with this car in the 19 months I have had it!

I have taken my car into the dealership to address the constant squealing of the brakes and the emergency brake indicator light randomly turning on. The dealership said there was nothing wrong with the brakes or the electrical system. The brakes are so loud and noisy that people can hear my car coming from far off, they sound like I own an old beat-up vehicle that has never been serviced. This car is brand new and should not be so embarrassingly loud each time I hit the brakes whether it's at a slow creep or on the highway. The emergency brake indicator light on the dash is also very concerning. At first the indicator light for the emergency brake would come on at the top of any hill or incline, like at the top of a ramp to enter the freeway. Now, the indicator light for the emergency brake randomly comes on at least once a day. I am afraid that one day the vehicle will try to engage the brake itself, or that my car will lock up while I am driving fast down the highway. The emergency brake has never been engaged manually by me except when I park at locations where I use the E-brake as a safety precaution. This should not happen while driving and especially if I haven't touched it. The dealership says there is nothing wrong, I beg to differ. The tire sensor for my passenger side, rear tire always says the tire pressure is low as well. It will say the tire is low about once a month, and it's always only this tire. I check the pressure with a hand gauge and all is fine. This vehicle obviously has some sort of electrical issue and the brakes are just horrid!! I would love to get rid of this vehicle but unfortunately with it being so new I am far from being able to do so. What a disappointment Chrysler!!

While driving down the highway, I had my check engine light and then a short time later my ABS light come one. My car lost power and even though you press gas pedal the engine decelerates like it is trying to shift into super low gear but not sending any power to transmission which acts like it is totally slipping (it is electronic too)! I almost got hit 4 times before getting to side of road. I shut it down. It then re-started after 5 minutes and ran fine for 5 minutes before starting the cycle again but luckily I was on the back streets and not the highway. Chrysler needs to address this before someone gets killed!

An electrical fire severely damaged my vehicle. The fire started while the vehicle was being driven. At the time of the fire no accessories were plugged in to the 12V power port. To the best of my knowledge the only accessories that were being used at the time of the incident were the A/C and the radio. The fire was extinguished by a homeowner, but the vehicle sustained heavy damage to the instrument cluster between the front seats. The car is still covered under the full manufacturers warranty, but at this point I am being told that this is not considered a warranty issue because they can not prove that the fire wasn't started by a device plugged into the 12V power port.
