Unknown Or Other problem #1

On 3 occasions, when I turn off the ignition and remove the key from my 2010 Chrysler town and country, the car continues to run as if the key was still in the car. It takes over an hour of fiddling with reinserting the key to get it to actually turn off. This is dangerous because I cannot park and leave my car while it is still running without a key even in the ignition. Someone could get inside and drive away without needing a key. . . . Not to mention carbon monoxide poisoning in a garage. I have brought the car to the dealer twice for the problem, but they have been unable to find a cause.

Unknown Or Other problem #2

Rear sliding doors on both sides have on several occasions shut on their own after being opened by me either with remote or using the door handle. Me and grandkids have gotten struck by door as it is coming back. Door will not sense that someone or something is in the opening. This is a serious issue that I can't let go on any longer.

Unknown Or Other problem #3

I took my 2010 Chrysler Town & Country limited Mini van to the dealer to have the ignition switch modified based on a recall notice from Chrysler. When the car was returned the switch was so difficult to turn I called to complain. My husband returned with the van on 8/2/2011 and was told that was the recall repair. When my husband left the dealer the switch prevented the turn signals from functioning because it is difficult to get the switch off of the "start" position and on to the "on" position. There was also no radio function. In the "start" postion this causes electrical issues with the function of the car, which the recall was suppose to fix. The dealer stated that in order to do the recall this is they way the switch has to work and that this is the way the switches are installed in the 2011 models as well. He stated that the design of the key prevents any standard type of ignition switch from being installed and that Chrysler does not offer the push button ignition for this model van. I must either accept this recall repair or risk that my car may shut itself off during operation. I had the recall repair done because I began having an electrical problem with my radio going off for no apparent reason.

Unknown Or Other problem #4

Traveling in marked 70mph zone in number two lane of westbound traffic. Engine suddenly cut off. Luckily could coast through two lanes to side of freeway. Car started up and got home. Next day, took to dealer who could not find any problems in car's computer. Nor, could find problem when test driving. Dealer said they couldn't do anything more unless there was a recall. I was almost rear ended when engine failed. I also lost steering and brakes, and car was difficult to control until restarted.

Unknown Or Other problem #5

Purchased a used 2010 Chrysler Town & Country March 19,2011. . On the second day March 20, 2011 with 17823 miles the car shut off while driving. At that time wasnt sure what was happening. It occurred 2 more times in the next week. Still unsure what was happening. Then on April 5 it occured again while making a right hand turn. We then realized it was actually shutting off in drive. When it happens everything shuts off (losing power steering etc) making it very difficult to pull over and restart vehicle. We took it to the dealer the next day and they were unable to duplicate the problem and there was no dtcs occuring. Left it at dealer another day and still no duplication. Have had car back for two more days with dealer and still no duplication. So at this point they are unable to do anything for us. The part that is failing we believe is the win module. It is very scary and dangerous. It appears that a recall may be coming out but not sure if it will include our vehicle. Spoke with Chrysler many times and they can not confirm that also they agreed that there is nothing they can do. Will not provide loaner or rental car because of no duplication of problem at dealers. We are very concerned and not sure what to do. Just don't drive very much.

Unknown Or Other problem #6

Sliding passenger door fails to work properly opens and closes at will. Has caught several children with out reopening upon contact. Continue to stall after recall as did before recall fix. Battery caused corrosion to eat away cables. Even when serviced like supposed to. Leather seats ripped within 2 mths of purchase was purchased brand new. Electrically gas mileage fluctuates all the time example 410 on fill up then 2 miles dn road it says 60 miles left etc. Yet Chrysler dealer claims all the time no dx on anything. Just shut completely down today as was turning ended up half in road thank god car behind paying attention and dump truck was coming also paid attention or else daughter and I could have been hurt severely. Never buy a Chrysler that's my response. Then had towed dealer said was relay switch they changed it brought me the vehicle then I went to drive out and it died again so I guess not. ## VIN passed ## 2010 Chrysler town and country ##.

Unknown Or Other problem #7

Purchased brand new, never owned 2010 Chrysler town and country, second day of owning vehicle noticed over sensitive obsturction detection in the driver side rear power sliding door. Have had vehicle for 4 months and problem has gotten wrose. Have come out from stores to find the door open because it had not shut properly. It attempts to close then reopens then tries to close and goes through this process about 10 times before having to manually shut door. Reserached online and see its a constant problems for others as well. Door also opened on me while pumping gas, and while I was quick enough to remove the gas before hitting, the door did hit the gas cap and shove it into the van causing a dent from the pressure of the door. .

Unknown Or Other problem #8

In April, my wife & I purchased our first Chrysler product, a new 2010 Town & Country (walter Chrysler edition). Unfortunately, driving this vehicle on a daily basis has become a safety issue for my family. On four complete random occurrences, the vehicle has completed shut down (stalled). All four times we experienced this issue was when we the driver was making a slight turn (right or left). Three times it stalled/shutdown at lower speeds. Once at 40 miles per/hour. When it stalled at a higher speed, my wife was driving on a major road way and this could have caused a major accident. I have taken the vehicle three time to our local dealership, armory Chrysler in albany, NY. Since they are unable to duplicate the problem, they have made no repairs on the vehicle. I have discussed this matter further with Chrysler representatives and to date these conversation have produced no results.
