I have a 2011 Chrysler Town & Country van with adjustable pedals. Per the manual ¿the pedals cannot be adjusted when the vehicle is in reverse or when the electronic speed control system (escs) is on¿¿ implying some type of interaction between the two systems. From time to time the escs will not come on or will stop responding to inputs, including not disengaging the escs when the cancel button is pushed (though it will disengage by depressing the brake pedal). However, if I toggle the adjustable pedal switch (in any direction) the escs immediately becomes responsive again. There seems to be some type of interaction between the adjustable pedal switch and the escs causing this problem. I¿ve been to the dealer with no assistance. Due to the escs intermittently not disengaging via the cancel button this can be a serious safety issue.

When on the road in warmer weather everything is fine and then all electrical components stop working windows, air conditioner, speed control, radio, not sure what else. All idiot lights come on, wipers come on and wont stop until key is in off position or if you keep driving it will eventuality come to normal but until it does, no windows, no ac makes it a hazard in traffic at temps around 100 degrees. Makes one wonder what will happen next because it gets real hot in the car real fast and it works on your mind. When the weather is cool it hardly ever happens but when it does occur its for a shorter time. Headlites say on but I'm not sure about the brake lites and turn signals.

Failure Date: 04/17/2016

While driving down highway at about 60 mph with wife and 3 children, suddenly with no warning, all power to vehicle was completely lost. This made it very difficult to safely move vehicle to shoulder. If traffic would have been heavy this could have caused a serious accident. Once vehicle was parked it would not restart and had to be towed 20 miles to dealer. Once at dealer electrical system seemed to fail further. Power windows, locks and doors would no longer work. Clearly some sort of serious electrical problem this is the 4th time something like this happened, but with the previous incidents the car always started once it was stopped and put into park and key was turned.

Failure Date: 01/20/2016

After filling up with fuel, the car was started, and driven out of the gas station, but less than 50 feet out onto the road, the car lost power then regained power then lost it cycling rapidly through this where rpm would come up to idle speed than drop to near zero up and down. No ability to move out of traffic, etc. , eventually completely stalled. The car started hard, but restarted and I could drive out of harms way. The car drove for about 2 blocks and acted up again for a few moments and then performed fine. This problem also occurred for another driver in the family about 2 weeks (4 fuel fills) earlier.

Vehicle stalled (highly dangerous, loss of power steering at high speeds): 2nd time in less than 1 week vehicle has stalled while driving in motion on highway between speeds of 25mph (1st time) and 45 mph (2nd time). No turns involved. Weather conditions were favorable with no rain or inclement weather, both were at night 7-8pm timeframe @ approx 50 degrees f outside air temp both times. Vehicle is a 2010 Chrysler tc with 4. 0 liter engine. 119,875 miles when it happened a second time. 1st time esp light came on, cannot confirm this occurred the 2nd time. No prior indications, no prior reported problems that I am aware of . Second owner, purchased car under warranty @ approx. 44,000 miles. Very hard to understand how this has not been diagnosed given the amount of complaints. I am an experienced mechanic in the aviation field, had this been an aircraft, the fleet would be grounded.

Failure Date: 12/03/2015

I was driving up hill in the city of muscatine and my automobile started roaring and accelerating near a stop sign and I could not get the auto to stop. I ended up hitting a curb and crashed into two trees and was knocked unconscious. The airbags in the front and the side did not deploy. Both sides of the car were impacted and the front also. The car was still roaring when emergency personal arrived to assist me. This caused me to have seizures and was taken to emergency room and admitted to hospital. The ups driver heard the car roaring and me crashing into the trees.

As we were driving at about 30 mph the van started to accelerate on its own. It revved up to 70 mph then to 50 then to 20 then back up to 70. We couldn't control the speed with gas pedal or the brake pedal. We were just gliding. I told my wife to put it into nuetral and tap on brake pedal till we finally slowed down. We then turned van off and let it sit. We then called are mechanics as we just had a transmission flush done. Of course they found nothing wrong with it because it wasn't doing it for them. We trust our mechanics as we have been using them for years now on all our vehicles and have never had a problem until this van. The next day we are sitting at a light and the van is jumping like it wants to go and a loud clunk noise happens like its shifting gears. Then the following morning my wife is getting in van to take kids to school and turns on van and it turns itself off. Our mechanics had this van for 2 days and have drove it with there computers hooked up to it and no red flags. The main mechanic says it's probably the computer. After further research on this van I now have found this is a very common problem with this make,model,year. Yet nothing has been done to resolve it. This is a major safety issue that apparently Chrysler is aware of but would rather make $1200 off consumers then fix on there own. Clearly my safety and my families safety isn't a concern for them. We drive almost an hour on the highway every other week. Now I have to be worried this van won't drive my family into another vehicle because its taking over and we have no way of stopping it.

The vehicle was parked in the garage when the driver entered the vehicle. The driver pressed the ignition button to turn the vehicle, keeping her foot on the brake. As the vehicle started, the wipers came on at high speed without having been turned on at the time or previously. At the same time, the engine revved and began to accelerate in reverse despite being in park with the driver's foot on the brake. The driver's door was open and crashed against the side of the garage door, ejecting the driver who had not even had time to put her on seat belt. The van continued to reverse down the driveway where it completed (almost) a 180 degree turn. The van finally came to a stop rolling up against a sidewalk curb with a couple more engine revs. A person other than the driver was the first to the vehicle after it came to a stop. He noted that the vehicle was in park. He shut the vehicle off by pressing the ignition button. The owner of the van and driver are very concerned about the vehicle's and their safety after having experienced this incident.

Filled up our van with gas. Left the gas station to cut across oncoming traffic. The lane was clear so I went. As I accelerated the van shuddered and cut off in the middle of traffic!. Lost all power, steering wheel locked up, and the engine cut off. Luckily we were not in a head on collision or were t-boned in the side. My wife and 1 year old were in the car and could have easily been killed. Immediately I went and started doing some research on what happened. Come to find it a lot of people are having this problem with these vans. The problem is a design flaw in the gas system of these vans. I found multiple people who are experiencing the same thing. To date there have been no recalls on this issue. . Read more...

Notice loud clunking noise shift from park to drive, or park to reverse. Not every time, but often enough. Also shift to/from to her gears is noticeable and gives the feel of hesitation. This is most often noticed around 37 mph or 30 mph. Went is cold the car act up . It is having troubles also getting hot the engine and I have the car for 5 month and I had to fill the coolant twice. I brought the car 5 time to the place where I bought the car 4 times to report the problem with the transmission they send me to one of the Chrysler dealer for service and did not show nothing on the diagnosis. I am frustrated because I research online iand I am not the only one complaining about the same problem. Aslo the suspension feels very weak.

Failure Date: 04/30/2015

The town and country van that we own continues to have multiple issues with intermittent stalling and various speeds. The van usually has problems most after refilling with gasoline. This problem has been happening for a few months and continues despite efforts to remedy the problem. I feel this is a safety issue that needs to be addressed by Chrysler and the NHTSA to avoid a major casualty incident since these vans are having documented problems at all speeds including highway driving at 70 plus mph. We are not sure if the problem exists due to electrical issues, fuel pump issues or evap system issues due to the fact that no reportable codes are being thrown when the vehicle has this problem.

Out of nowhere vehicle stops running, no check engine lights, but van shuts off. This has happened a dozen or so times in the last few weeks. Took the van to local shop for diagnostic test. No codes appeared, tested fuel pump and egr value, not problems there. Mechanic unable to detect issue. I've noticed other complaints online and a recall for 2010 Chrysler t&c vans, but not my vehicle (built on 9/26/2012).
