My vehicle is having the same issue as the recall. I contacted Chrysler on July 30 2014. And was told that my VIN was not apart of the recall. I told them my vehicle is stalling as im going over 50mph my gas tank goes from half full to empty and the e light turns on. If I don't rush to the gas station my car will die as if it had no fuel left. ( leaving me stranded on the side of the road. With my children ). When I do put gas in its very slow and I have to hold the bar back on the gas pump itself or my car will turn the pump handle off. My rmp jumps up and down as im accelerating. It feels like my engine is hesitating. My gas pedal gets stuck while driving and I have to tap it with my foot to unstick it. How is this even safe. To recall some and not others. I'm a stay at home mother to 3 boys under the age of 5 years old. I read online the horror stories of people with the same problem and year make model everything and Chrysler is not doing anything to fix the problem. Please help me fix this problem before me and my children and everyone else before a serious accident is to happen. As of right now my car is state inspected. But I do not feel safe driving it anymore I so not want to risk the safety of my children's lives.
My car failed on us as we were on our trip towards brownsville texas. The electrical in my car started flickering and the motor kept accelerating itself. . Then the gas indicator went from showing half tank full to 10 miles to empty. . We were in the deserted part of the checkpoint ranch so we had about 30 miles until a gas station we thought we couldn't possibly just run out of gas, but as we continued 5 minutes later our car electrical just sounded a spark and our car starting shutting off, hard steering to pull on side of road. . But thank god we had no vehicles behind us so that prevented an accident from happening. . We called family member to go help us haul our car to a nearest gas station or mechanic. . Something I never want to experience with my children 3 and 1 in my car and the hot summer. . I have searched for my car if it falls in the recall category but it shows nothing. . Yet it showed to have similar defects as the ones being recalled.

When I bought it I drove it 20 feet to gas station. The gas tank said I had half a tank of gas. Once I was done I turned the car back on and it said I had no gas! I called the guy who sold it to me and he said it just takes time for it to regrister that I filled it up so I drove it back to him to show him what I was talking about when he got there it said I had half a tank and he told me to drive it home I would be fine! well on the way home it said I had 20 mile till empty but the last thing it showed on gas tank was that I still was at half take so I filled it up agin. I took the car to my brothers which is 35 miles from fargo to have him see if he could fix the pumps but he couldn't so I got back on interstate goin 75 mph to go home and the gas light flickered and the car went from 75 to 0 in like 2 seconds. Resulting in myself bashing my head on steering wheel and no air bags went off either! my husband came to get me and brought gas cans to get me enough gas to make it to a gas station! it took us 58 min exactly to fill the tank completely full so I could make it back home. So the next day I called back and they eventually had me take it to lundes in fargo to fix the gas tank which took 1 month almost 2, so when I got it back multiple times in between that time it was still happening! finally they fix it except the fact that a year later it's happening all over agin! which was 5 days ago on my way to jamestown with my children in the car! I have called many of places and nobody knows how to fix it. If I go back to lundes they said they had no idea why it would happen agin! and how long it would take them to figure it out! it would have happened earlier if I actually drove the car more but ever since the accident when I drive that car I can't stop checking how full the tank is! something needs to be done before someone gets into a serious accident with that car!.
Gas gauge drops to empty when it reaches 1/2 tank. Have to "trickle" gas in during refill and will only hold 7-8 gallons. After gauge drops to empty vehicle runs out of gas even though it shows over 200 miles to empty at time the gauge drops.

I am continuously having problems with the fuel system. It constantly runs out of gas even though I may have recently put gas in. The gauge is always floating between empty and full, but within driving for a few minutes it will drop down on "e" and the gas light comes on. I've had the fuel line and tank checked for blockage, but the certified mechanic says that there's nothing blocking either. I must make frequent stops to put gas in again, but at no time will it allow me to pump more than $10-$15 worth of gas (regardless of the gas prices). Knowing that I've just put gas in, I'll continue to drive a while, but then the car will begin to slow down because it has shut down and the low fuel light will either come on or be on. I was told that there was or maybe a recall that effects my vehicle and I don't know what else to do to get help on this problem.
There is a very strong fuel smell that is seeping into the passenger compartment of the car. It seems to appear around 40 to 50 mph and is very strong in the last week. At 125,000 mi the abs sensors turns on and off constantly. When you first press the brakes it does not grab the rotors and continues to not stop until the abs light comes on and the brakes perform normal. This is very scary because the car almost went thru several intersections without stopping. The fuel indicator drops to almost empty when it falls below half a tank for about 6 months.

While turning into the bank parking lot at 10mph the car just stalled. I was unable to brake or steer out the way. When gas gauge reads empty I am unable to fill the tank with gas as it begins to spill back out. Gas gauge reads 1/2 full when it is really empty? miles to empty sensor incorrect therefore I have no idea when I need gas. Driver side exterior headlamp seems dimmer than the other lamp. After repairing the entire front end(suspension) still sounds like the front end is going to fall apart when driving on ohio roads. Felt it was necessary to document as I do not feel safe in this car.
