While driving on a highway at high-speed, all the electrical instruments began flashing on/off. The airbag light began flashing and a chime could be heard. This occurs intermittently (3-5 times per year) and Chrysler cannot properly diagnose the problem. With this latest incident, the dealership told me it would cost $800 for a new power control module. I researched online only to learn there are thousands of people with identical complaints about their Chrysler vehicles, while NHTSA refuses to order a recall. I refuse to allow Chrysler to perform work on this vehicle unless they can guarantee the repair and cap the cost. I purchased this vehicle new and Chrysler failed to disclose two auto body repairs performed prior to sale - I discovered this on the Chrysler website and since spent over $1,500 to repair it because Chrysler refused to accept any responsibility after the lemon laws expired.

Driving down a normal traffic filled street, car all of a sudden shakes and, wont go passed 20 mph and the electronic throttle control light comes on. Its happened before but if I turn off the car and restart, the car would return to normal. This particular day it didnt. Took it to tire plus, they said I need a fuel line cleaning or something like that. Fixed the problem for about a week and today as I was driving from work doing about 45 mph the electronic throttle control light comes on again, 3 times in under fice mins. Each time had to restart my car. Its dangerous when youre in traffic and late at night, having to pull over and restart.
Having continual issues with lights on dash flickering: 2 repairs completed in last 18 months and still broke. Cosmetically, the car is crappy since the day I bought it; paint flaking off, tire rims have pitted, inside door handles flaking off paint too, among a few others. However, my heated seats burning through is what has me very irate! I was driving and had two adult passengers with me. Both of us in the front had the heated seats turned on returning home from running errands in the city 45 miles away. My passenger is 8 months pregnant and I have low lumbar issues, so heated seats are always used. We had both complained that we found it weird that if we made quick stops during our running, when we got back into the car and turned the heated seats on, it felt warmer than usual. However, if we were somewhere for a longer period of time, the seats didn't get terribly hot right away. The car sat for 48 hours before it was time for me to pack up and head back to my own home, when I noticed what I thought to be a stain on my seat (from my daughters dog thinking he was going with me). After trying to clean it and nothing happening, I touched it with my finger tip, only to find that it was a burn spot. If that would have caught fire while driving, I could have crashed! I could have killed my pregnant passenger, her hubby and her unborn baby! since today is a holiday, you can bet that I will be calling the dealership first thing tomorrow. I am the first and only owner of this car.
I was driving my vehicle at 55 mph when my electronic throttle control light came on and my speed drop down to a stuttering 35 mph which almost cause the car behind me to rear end me. I have the bumper to bumper power train warranty but I was told that the part my not be covered.
I was crossing 4 lanes of oncoming traffic and my car stalled and died. This was the first time it had happened so I was unsure what to do. Thank goodness I put my car in p and restarted it in enough time to get out of the way before I was hit. This has again happened many times over the last 10+ years of ownership. Funnily enough, as I pulled up to my bank to make my final car payment, the car also stalled. It was too ironic. I have taken it to the dealership which is such a hassle and of course, they can find nothing wrong. Now, my check engine light comes on and then goes off with no apparent reason. Please issue some sort of recall so no one is hurt because of this issue.

Ignition does not stay in position. It can move to acc or on position when car is started. Since it can be freely movable if the car is involved in an accident chances are the air bags may not deploy if key ignition not kept in on position. I called local dealer since this particular model is not on recall then I would have to pay to have it fixed. Other models from Chrysler are already on recall and this model needs to be added to it for the consumers.

When it began, the car sometimes would not catch when I turned the ignition. Then one day it was raining and I pulled up to a red light and the car cut off. It eventually progressed to the car randomly slowing down and/or not going over 20 mph. When it first started I could turn the car off and back on and it would be fine, now the car must sit for hours before it begins to work properly again.

The electrical in the dash started flickering on and off without warning. Eventually it stopped working all together. I took it to a service dept I work at and they told me I needed to take it back to the dealer because they would have to rip the whole dash apart and replace it. That would cost me around $600. Seems like other people have had the same problem. Has this ever been a recall?.
