The vehicle has died four times at higway speed leaving the vehicle without steeringand brakes. The dealer is unable to reproduce the defect and guesses that the vehicle has a problem with the fuel pump. The problem started at 38K or right out of the warranty and they do not know what has caused it. I have a two year old boy and have had him with me when it broke down inthe the winter. Chrysler says their records are proprietary and will not tell me if they have had problems with their fuel pumps.
