My car have been given me problems for about 6months. Engine light is on. Car keep cutting off in the middle of traffic. I have taken the vehicle to the dealer, I know six times before my factory warranty ran out, and they could never fix it. Took it today and they told me my warranty is out, and now I have to start doing random work to it to find out what's wrong. The employee of Chrysler checked the car to see if it was as giving a code for what is wrong. She said it was not showing a code. The waited until warranty ran out, to make me pay for it. Congratulations hey could never find out what was wrong with it. I don┐T know what to do. I still owe $19000 on it. Please help.

Takata recall. After I reached 64,000 miles may vehicle turned off while driving to work. It took at least 5 times for the motor to turn over. As soon as power was restored battery light came on. Now the battery light is off but the check engine light is on. Since then I have taken the car to my local mechanic and was told it was the battery. I┐ve had my battery tested and that's not the problem. There now S a major electrical issue that is wrong. I have tried to drive my car since and it continues to turn off. This is only not a hazard to myself but to others that are driving because it abruptly stops in the middle of traffic. Chrysler I need you to investigate this issue.

A couple weeks ago, I was at stop light my car stalled, I put in park it restarted. I couldn┐T put on my hazards or anything to warn the car behind. It happened again on this Saturday on the highway in the fast lane the dashboard was blank, the radio stopped playing, so merged in the slow lane without using the brake then everything came back on the speed gauge was trying to get my current speed. It doesn┐T happen all the time but it's scary feeling because everything on dashboard is computerized.

My car suddenly turned off as I was making a turn. I have fixed the car 2 times from the same thing and this will be the 3rd. I want to see if there's something associated with a recall about the computer module. It stalls to turn on, and when it does it won┐T go as far as a mile

I've been into the service department over 6 times for the same issues. This car is so unsafe to drive. I believe this is a transmission issue. My car creates a very hard jerking when switching gears or speeding up. It also shakes when the air conditioning is on and I am only getting about 15 mi to the gallon when it should be 27. I've left multiple complaints since I have had this vehicle, worked with the device department, worked with Chrysler and the situation and safety concern is still not rectified. Please look into this. It's my only transportation and I would like to keep myself, my 3 babies, and other drivers safe. Thank you!

Takata recall, my vehical was completely still, outside of my family home getting into the car with my 1yo. I have had problems with my key fob before so I didnt think anything of it. Tried to go and start my car and my speedometer read ┐key fob not detected┐ but my car crank any way and let me drive 20 minutes out to visit a family member. Once we got back in the car to go home, my car would not crank, due to a computer failure to ready my key fob, had to get it towed to the dealership where I found this out and is costing me around $500 to pay for.

I purchased my vehicle in 6/19/17 and immediately after a few rides I fault with the dealer about my airbag light coming on. I went to the dealership and they told me it was my airbag wiring harness and it would need to be replaced under both seats but it was not covered under warranty. There is no way I was paying for this when the car was practically new only approximately 42502 miles and I was having ongoing issues with my airbag light coming on. Well now I am really feeling like this recall is larger than it is presented. Also, the vehicle has electrical problems when I get things done to my vehicle. Such as my transmission needing service, the malfunction indicator light, the ABS, the traction, and electronic park brake failure. All these lights came on just from replacing a hub (bearings) on my passenger side. My main complaint is on the air bag issue. I just want to voice my frustration when multiple people tell me they do not know why my vehicle is giving me these notifications.

Oil consumption and electric wiring problems causing the air conditioner to go out and blow hot air. The oil consumption will need entire engine replaced. Oil consumption almost caused wreck because car will throw car in park at unexplained times because oil is low even when oil was changed. Very very dangerous. Oil light does not come on either even oil is dangerously low. Driver is unaware.

My wife [xxx]. (Michigan state police metro South post #22, [xxx]) -oil changed at Suburban Chrysler in novi before leaving for the approximately 1000 mile trip and week in fl. -during stay, the car smelled hot so she took it to sunset Chrysler ([xxx]) in sarasota, fl. Personnel at dealership were rude, and told her her car's state of cleanliness was causing the smell. -my wife needed to drive home in a couple of days and was still concerned. One thing that I had her check was coolant which was low and had not been noticed by sunset. She then took the car to a second dealership (douglas Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram, fl ([xxx]) for inspection. Douglas, while more polite, conducted coolant system and other checks, but determined there was no issue with the vehicle. The service department guaranteed my wife that the vehicle was safe to drive back to Michigan and even went on to say that they would not let an unsafe vehicle leave the shop. -that same night I contacted Chrysler who initiated their own investigation. ([xxx])fca refused to comment on the source of the fire or to honor the warranty on the car. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

While driving the hole system will shut down at random times. All the screens all things that light up. Not every time, but sometimes. Then when you go to switch gears to back up the back up camera doesn't always switch to back up. It will stay on the same screen or go black. This part actually happens a few times a week.

My car stalls when I start to drive. If I don't let it idle in park for a good 15 minutes it will stall and tells me to put it in park. Once it stalls it is difficult to restart. Also the airbag light keeps coming on. If I hit the smallest pothole the airbag light comes on and it gives me a message stating service airbags. Also the driverside seat came untracked and cannot move it forward or backwards without it making a weird noise.

My car was driving just fine until I went to reverse out of the parking spot I was parked in. I pushed the brake down to release the emergency brake and all of a sudden my brake got harder to push down. It displays on my screen the ┐brake┐ is on but it's not. It almost feels like my brakes went out but it's so hard to push them down. Luckily it happened while I was in a parking lot rather then on a main road or even the highway. I took it to the dealership and was told it was my brake booster. It's no way after two years of having this car that anything this serious with my brakes should┐ve happened at all.
