1 week after I bought my van the car started vibrating when the vehicle was stopped (waiting at the light). I went to the dealer to ask them if there was a recall for this problem they first say that there was no problem and then I read that there was a recall for some vehicles having debris on the engines, so they replaced half of the heads in the engine. The vehicle stopped vibrating, but then I notice that when speeding or slowing down the vehicle does not responds to the change in gears or isn’t accelerating like it should. Also while coming to a stop the transmission would not downshift causing the car to lunge forward. It would vibrate when coming to stop.

Faulty transmission. Constantly hard shifts everywhere. Feels like the transmission is going to fall out of the vehicle every time you shift from reverse to drive ,or drive to park, or park to reverse. This is the second transmission on this vehicle. .

We have had many mechanical concerns with our new t&c 2011. We have taken our vehicle in many times to cerritos Dodge Chrysler dealership. After a failed attempt to fix something within the transmission, they completely replaced the transmission. There were still concerns and a week later the vehicle had belts and the water pump replaced. To date, many of our initial concerns still exist and are not being fixed. Concerns include: 1. Noises from under the hood. 2. Shudder/ shake while the vehicle is in reverse. 3. Keyless start malfunctions, it continues to read "defected key", after the keys have been reset, 4. While using keyless, the vehicle shuts off when putting the car into reverse/drive. 5. Rough idle, the vehicle seems to struggle to stay running. 6. When changing gears, the shift makes a clunking/grinding noise. The only consistent thing about this vehicle is its inconsistency. The dealership states that the noises are "normal". The regional area service manager has been contacted, and has sided with the dealership. Corporate has also been contacted, and they are investigating the current situation.

Vehicle has a shuddering effect while driving between 38-55 mph. The trans-axle has been rebuilt multiple times and lasts apprx. 12000 miles and then has to be rebuilt again. As the miles progress up from the rebuild the shuddering increases and the vehicle becomes a danger to drive. Chrysler position is that they fixed the issue and it is our problem.

When going up hill (driveway) vehicle does not pull like normal, it hesitates and stutters. I must put it into low in order to pull the hill. Also, when reversing vehicle vibrates and moves very slowly. Vehicle drives fine in normal conditions, the only problem is pulling up hill after a stop and reversing at any time.
