car   Engine Stall problem 1
Failure Date: 11/01/2018

The engine stalled while driving down the road at 10mph. Just out of blue the engine stopped and I get a move shifter to park and restart engine message on the screen. (that itself is dangerous to move the shifter to park in a moving car). This happened a few months ago at a red light and I had reported it. Clearly Chrysler hasn�t fixed this issue and it�s causing for very dangerous driving conditions. These people only started after the recall from Chrysler for a software update to fix this issue.

car   Engine Stall problem 2
Failure Date: 10/15/2018

I had my 2017 Pacifica fixed as part of the recall for the engine stalling issue a few months ago (18v049000). It stalled at an intersection, actually almost twice. The first time, it shuddered and *almost* stalled at an intersection when I accelerated on a green light, but then at the last second it picked up and started moving. A few intersections later, this time on a slight slope, the light turns green, I step on the accelerator, it shudders and stalls. I get the "move shifter to park" and have to restart the car. After restarting it's been working fine since. Obviously they haven't fixed the engine stalling issue.

car   Engine Stall problem 3
Failure Date: 05/08/2018

Engine stalled when attempting to accelerate from a complete stop. Lost all control of electrical, and the car would not shift into park or neutral. Windows would not close or open. Navigation screen was still on. No other dash warning lights were illuminated. Attempted to turn the car off and on, but nothing happened. After 5 minutes of attempting to restart the car, it restarted. I was able to drive the car to a safe location and have it towed.

car   Engine Stall problem 4
Failure Date: 12/01/2017

Car unexpectedly cut out and engine stalled whilst making a turn on to a busy 4 lane street. Took to the dealership and no issues found. I�ve redently discovered this happening to other vehicles of the same make, model and and year.

car   Engine Stall problem 5
Failure Date: 08/15/2017

I purchased my 2017 Chrysler Pacifica touring l on 7/22/2017, everything was going great until mid August. My uconnect radio kept freezing, the engine ticked (stopped itself within a few weeks), the tailgate got stuck half way a few times trying to automatically close. It�s just stop midway and I�ll have to manually push it shut close. Within later months (beginning around October) my began to jerk back every so often (about twice a week) while driving. It�s happened at both high and low speeds so I�m not sure what the problem is. I�ve took it to the dealership service center multiple times but they don�t have a solution or �fix� for the problem. Since they don�t have a solution they won�t do anything about it. Recent month (December/January) the jerking is getting worse. It�s beginning to jerk almost everyday, sometimes more than three times a day! I�ve been continuing to pay my lease for a car I�m terrified of driving. I�ve read so many horror stories of people Pacifica�s stalling while on the freeway. I refuse to have my family ride in what suppose to be a safe vehicle. I took the vehicle in for repair last week for the engine stalling and they still don�t have a resolution to the fix. The day after I picked up my vehicle, while driving home that night it jerked back while going down a city main street. A few minutes later it gave me this message on the dash (image attached).

car   Engine Stall problem 7
Failure Date: 05/21/2017

Purchased a brand new Chrysler Pacifica vehicle 3 wks ago on may 18 2017. We headed out on vacation on the 20th of may. May 21 was the first incident on the interstate in chicago we stalled in the middle of traffic for approximately 10 minutes. May 27 we pulled up to a stoplight and the engine stalled out on us that lasted approximately 3 minutes, the same day at a tollbooth we stalled out which lasted about 25 minutes before the car would start again we ended up calling for a towing service but the car we started and we canceled the tow service. May 30 we left the grocery store the screen switch to the app page and would not switch back, the brakes locked and we lost engine power. That lasted 20 mins before car would start. June 7 car would not start after coming out of the grocery store waited 20 minutes then tried again car started 30 seconds after the ignition button has been pressed by itself. June 11 car stalled out pulling into the driveway. Took less then a minute to restart this time. We have taken the car into the dealer and the could find nothing and could not replicate. We now have to drive back from PA to nd with a vehicle I am afraid to drive with 6 kids. I am so upset and disappointed in this Chrysler product.
