Since 11/2017, have had ongoing issue with sensation of a very hard shift occurring when accelerating especially if I have been driving in heavy traffic for some time. This has been on both highways and on local streets. Sensation is so hard, it feels like vehicle has been rear ended. This has occurred both before and after recall work was done. Have requested evaluation twice at dealer and each time nothing able to be found as cause. The event does not occur all of the time so service techs most likely did not experience it. Starting the week of 4/30, van has started to be slow in acceleration when pulling away from red lights, intersections and merging onto highways. Feel van is becoming increasingly unsafe to drive. Also had check engine light come on and found to be fuel pressure sensor. When first replaced at dealer, fuel pressure sensor worked for a few days and then van would not start and approx. 1/4 tank of gas lost on parking lot surface. Required towing and when checked o-ring had crimped and burst on new sensor.

Fuel gauge shows inaccurate reading. I filled the tank halfway and after driving for 30 minutes or so the gauge drops to an 1/8 tank while driving. After I shut it off for a few minutes it will go back up sometimes higher sometimes lower. It's happening more frequently. I have small children and would hate for it to leave my wife and children stranded in the middle of nowhere.

The engine shuts off while driving causing the vehicle to come to a sudden stop because of loss of power. The vehicle had to be changed to park before it could be started. This issue happened would happen on a full tank of gas and continuously until the fuel level was ran down.
While going down the highway at 70mph to pick up my son from school the vehicle stopped accelerating (just after putting a half a tank of gas in) and sputtered a bit like it was running out of gas. It would not start back up again and after my husband inspected it and tested the fuel system, says it is not getting fuel to the motor! if I weren't driving where I was and able to pull off on the side of the road I could have killed someone else (like my small child or someone else) or been killed myself. Very scary and awful!.

My wife was driving the car in stop and go traffic on the highway when it stalled out. She lost all power steering and power braking. She had to stop the car completely and put it in park before being able to restart. The problem kept recurring and she was only able to go a short distance each time. Luckily she was able to nurse the car off the highway and onto a side street to park it. I went back to the car the following week after it was parked and had the same problem only it seemed even worse. I would start the car, it would drive only a few feet and shut down completely. This happened repeatedly (maybe 5 times) until I decided to park it and call Chrysler. Called Chrysler and they said it had to be towed to the nearest dealer. It was picked up about 3 hours later. They called me about 3 days later and told me that the gas tank had been overfilled and it caused something to malfunction. This seems very hard to believe would be the cause of such a catastrophic failure. They said they needed to replace the fuel tank. About 2 weeks later, they had replaced the fuel tank, canister, valve, fuel cover and fuel module. I picked the car up and had no incidents driving home. That said, I am scared to drive this car or put my family in this car - particularly on the highway. I want Chrysler to buy this car back from me. I don�t want to be scared driving it every day.

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!.
