problem #3

Challenger 8-cyl

  • 18,300 miles
My 2009 Dodge Challenger stalls while driving and mostly happens while making turns. It happens randomly and you never know when it is going to happen. You lose all power and there is no power steering when this happens. It is very unsafe and this has been happening to a lot of Challenger owners. At this time Chrysler hasn't released a fix for this problem.
