Instrument panel lights and gauges flicker and moves simultaneous without any warning, transmission gave out at 97,528 miles. From what we were told it is a defect that those cars have. Also I'd point out I know a few people with same problem and they will document their complaints as well.car turns on and only moves in reverse, once you try to place it in drive it shuts off. Defective transmission. This happened to us while we were coming out of the highway and going to a red light stop. While we came to a complete stop the car shook real hard as if we hit something and shut off. We turned on car without a problem but as soon as we placed it in drive the same thing happened a big hit in engine and it shut off. Also aibag lights are on which ive heard means that they are faulty

We where driving in Florida on vacation on June 12, 2017 when our 2009 Chrysler Town and country started to have electrical problems. The wipers wouldn't shut off until the wiper motor burned up, the drivers seat wouldn't stop moving forward and back, the windows wouldn't go down, ac went out, the entire dash board light up and all the lights stayed on, the speedometer was dead, the gas gauge was dead, the turn signals didn't work, the dvd players didn't work. We took it to a dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. It then did it again and it went back to the same dealership and again they couldn't find anything. On the way home on I-95 it started again. When we got home we took it to a garage that deals with electrical problems and he found out it was a dvd player in the front that was making it go nuts. He disconnected it and its ok but now nothing works, like the 3 dvd players, the heated mirrors, the remote start. This issue needs to be fixed before some one gets killed on the highway.

I was traveling on the highway in my 2009 Town and country when a vehicle crossed the center line at a high rate of speed and struck me head on. The impact from collision left me seriously injured and I was transported by helicopter to the nearest trauma center. Neither my front of side airbags deployed in the collision. I suffered a broken arm from the side impact and a dislocated hip, pelvic fracture, and patella injuries from the front impact. I am unsure about whether or not my vehicle contained defective takata airbags, but to my knowledge, I had not received a recall. I would like answers regarding why the airbags failed to deploy.
