Failure Date: 09/07/2018

The transmission is slipping and causing unexpected deceleration. (loud whining noise from the trans module area. My wife and kids were in traffic on the way to school when the vehicle/van lost power and high revved the engine due to issues with the transmission. She was able to coast off the highway into a parking lot to avoid collision. It appears there are recalls due to bad hydraulic pump in trans but the somehow my vehicle is not included according to the dealer. (recall s44/NHTSA 16v-461) I have no way of validating the production date of my vehicle. Please compile and see if other consumers have been exposed to this hazard. Perhaps the recall needs to be extended to include additional make dates.

Failure Date: 02/03/2017

I had a 2005 town and country but had to purchase another car because someone hit my car and totaled it. I purchased the subject vehicle in late 2012. I had to replace the transmission in 2015 and not quite 2 years later, the new rebuilt transmission is slipping. The transmission was replaced by a Chrysler dealership. I was on my way to pick up my son. As I increased speed the engine started making a loud whistling noise (kind of). The rpm indicator was going back and forth. Going 25 mph it was almost at three. It took a very hard effort to get the car to go 40 mph.

Failure Date: 01/14/2013

My car is a 2009 Chrysler Town & Country with just over 60000 miles on it. The transmission is slipping and according to the dealer will have to be replaced now as it is failing fast. His recommendation is that I don't drive it very far. There is no reason why a 3 year old car with 60000 miles on it should have the transmission failing. I have been reading up on this and there are apparently quite a few complaints regarding this specific year and model. Many people have complained about the transmission failing. Apparently, Chrysler's warranty only covers 3 years or 36,000 miles unless you buy the extended. Since I bought this car from my parents it is technically used and that option was not available to me. Regardless, obviously the shoddy workmanship and parts of this car have contributed to the failure of my transmission along with that of many other owners.

Failure Date: 01/20/2011

My 2007 Chrysler Town & Country is having a transmission failure problem. Without warning my vehicle's transmission will slip then the check engine light will come on and the vehicle will no longer shift into it's third range. Even after I shut off my vehicle and restart it the check engine light will remain on and the computer codes all set hard. Once taken to a transmission shop everything can be reset with the mechanic resetting the computer codes. At this point the check engine light goes off and the transmission shifts properly. I have been advised by a Chrysler dealership that my vehicle is not covered under their powertrain warranty and they have not had any other reported events such as mine. My vehicle only has 35,000 miles on it and I don't feel that this is a usual failure. Something has to be wrong with the way the transmission was built.

Failure Date: 08/01/2007

The first time this happened I almost had a head on collision while trying to pass. When pushing the gas pedal to the floor to pass, the van would not accelerate. Not only can I not accelerate to pass, I cannot accelerate to avoid an emergency situation. Apparently the transmission is slipping. While the dealer has replaced parts in the transmission it has not fixed the problem. The vehicle is under warranty, but Chrysler does not know how to fix it.

Failure Date: 12/07/2005

We have a 2003 Chrysler town and country lxi. For over a year now, we have had problems with the transmission slipping and jerking. We have taken the van in on numerous occasions but have not had the problem fixed. We supposedly have two files open with Chrysler and have been promised for a month now to be contacted by a Chrysler representative. The dealer has no idea of what is wrong or even how to solve the problem. My concern is that I will be trying to merge into traffic or start a turn or something and the transmission not work properly causing an accident.
