I have the exact same problem twice. The first one was at 29000 miles and transmission was overhauled and oxygene sensor was replaced. Then, at 64000 miles the exact same thing happened. Talked to exteneded warranty company and they said the problems are not realated. Talked to dealership, and they said that the problems were "peculiar". called diamler-Chrysler, and they said that the two systems were not related. But the problems were exactly the same both times.

It would be next to impossible to describe each problem. All problems that I have listed are completely true. I can say with complete certainty that the problems occurred after the 75000 mile waranty I bought was over with the exception of the egr valve which the dealer replaced just to have it fail again. Also the dealer replaced the O2 sensor which again is failing again. The horn/airbag sensor was also replaced by the dealer. Please note that all repaires by the dealer was (a) before the waranty had expired, and (B) I had to call Chrysler and complain just to have those things fixed. I have had the car checked by an authorized dealer so I know these problems to exist. The dealer, instead of fixing my car, which they won't do, they tried to get me to trade it in on another new vehicle. My wife and I could not be more dissatisfied with a "new car" than we are with this one. Believe me, if we were to have known about this car's track record, we would have never have purchased it. I guess thats all I have, thank you.R( dot number: Tire size: P1856014 )

Vehicle stalling continually, replacement of faulty oxygen sensor did not rectify engine stalling.
