Failure Date: 07/29/2015

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...

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).

For the past several months the car will not start and takes several tries to successfully start the car. It hesitates at around 35 mph and tries to stall. I have been waiting for Chrysler to follow up with a second (l-25) recall notice. Yesterday, 12/14/14 while going around a round-about it died completely and I lost power steering, and all power to the car. I was able to restart the car and return it home. This is my main form of transportation, used to take the kids to school and activities. I was told by the dealer today they have been advised not to touch it by Chrysler and told to contact Chrysler. The representative at Chrysler said I needed to take it up with the dealer as it is not a matter of having a part, but that Chrysler does not have a solution. This is very concerning, as it poses a serious safety to concern to me, my kids, and other drivers. Please let me know what recourse I have in getting Chrysler to complete the full repair to my satisfaction. * mopar website says parts are available. It would seem a huge liability that Chrysler would not make driver and passenger safety priority.

Chrysler town and country 2007- shortly after refueling the vehicle, with no warning the rpm's will drop and the engine will stall. This event usually happens as I am merging into traffic from the gas station. This is a very dangerous situation because the power brakes and steering assist is lost during a stall!.

Upon accelerating from a green light, the rpms jumped as if I pushed the peddle to the floor. As soon as I touch the accelerator this happened so I let go of the peddle and the rpm continued to rise and the car continued to accelerate. I slammed the breaks and for a few moments I was using the breaks to fight the acceleration of the vehicle. After about 20 seconds of this accelerating the the problem stopped on its own and I could take over control again. This same thing happened again on November 15th and on this day it occurred multiple times.

My headlights, odometer & prnd21 began flickering intermittently. Condition worsened and gauges would turn off and back on, warning lights would flicker off & on, radio cuts out. Condition has progressed - now van has stalled out while driving three times. Battery is good, grounds are connected. This complaint seems to be common, yet dealerships do not seem to have repair information from Chrysler. Stalling while driving is dangerous - Chrysler should help identify a solution and issue a service bulletin.

Just purchased a used 2008 Chrysler Town & Country. It was taken to the shop for extensive maintenance, including the replacement of the hub bearing - front right with oem parts. Upon further inspection we ascertained that there is a recall for this part for the 2008 model year. Chrysler notification k19 states: "the front wheel bearings on your vehicle (VIN: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) may develop a growling or grinding noise. The bearing noise may increase or decrease during turning maneuvers. What your dealer will Chrysler will service your vehicle free of charge (parts and labor) well, it turns out that my vehicle VIN number is not included in the recall. Is there a reason for this? can you look into this? thank you.

•last March I was driving on highway in rush hour, 60 – 65 mph. Van shuts off, breaks do not work, and steering wheel is locked. All I could do is wait until the van coasted to a stop; I put it in park and then started it back up again in order to exit the expressway. •took the van in. They kept it for over a week and then told me that they replaced something with the brakes and now it is working fine. •(11/04/14), I was on vacation in ohio. Going 40 mph and the same thing happened. Again, I was lucky and no accident. •took the van to nearest dealership. They charged me $79 to check out the car – and they did not find anything. I would have thought that would have been a covered charge. •Chrysler “escalated my ticket to corporate” and they also asked me if I felt safe driving my van home. I did not feel safe – but really did not see a choice because all the dealership and the surrounding car rental places had to offer me was a small car and I had 3 people, luggage and a wheelchair to get home. •I drove side roads home – the total trip took me an additional 9 hours instead of 4. 5. (11/06/14) the car shut down again on me – no one was on the road at the time. •(11/07/14) ray laetham dealership in grosse pointe, michigan. •11/12/14 dealership asked several questions about the car and said the engineers at Chrysler have given them additional things to try •11/14/14 dealership tells me I can pick up my van. Engineers have decided that it must have been the e85 gas that I had been using "which has been known to cause problems" even though that is the gas that I was told to use. Hopefully I will survive the last 6 months of my lease. I have a van that I cannot drive my family in.

As I was driving down the highway at approximately 70mph, my vehicle lost all power. It was so abrupt that it felt as if I had been rear ended. I had no power steering, and all electrical components of my van shut off. I attempted to steer towards the shoulder, and my van regained power. The dash lights flashed twice and then I had full power. The van then again had all lights shut off and it shut off. This second occurrence was quicker than the first, and the power flashed back on after a few seconds. I exited with the van off the highway and had it towed. The dealership drove the vehicle, but was unable to replicate the problem so they could not repair it. They do not know why it happened or if/when it will happen again, but they are unwilling to purchase the car back from me.

We have had several issues that vehicle will not start. Key turns but ignition seems to not acknowledge and fails to start vehicle. Happened even on a ferry one day. So far, no towing has been necessary. Very worried that if its an ignition issues, what if while driving it fails to keep car moving? we drive a lot of miles to and from FL and it is very concerning. My local mechanics cannot find any issues and I feel Chrysler has not addressed properly.

Many, many , many times this has happened. I will either be slowing down for a red light, to make a turn, or hit a bump and the car shuts off. No particular reason, no idiot lights come on indicating a problem. If I didn't pay attention to the heating/cooling fan, it shuts off, I wouldn't know this has happened. Twice I have been driving on the freeway, hit a bump and the car shuts off. 65 mph with children and pets in the car!. A couple of times the car has just shut off at a stop, no bump, nothing apparent. I have been in to the dealership three times, spending large amounts of money and all they can say to me is I'm sorry we could not duplicate the situation. I received a recall notice on 09-15-2014 about the problem and as of this date, 01-16-2015 I have not been notified that it is my turn to get the ignition fixed. My husband and I both called the dealership two times each and all they can say is that the part hasn't been manufactured or that they haven't heard anything from Chrysler.

While driving on the freeway, going uphill at about 55mph, my engine suddenly began revving and the van sped up, then, I was unable to get it to accelerate. I pushed the gas pedal, but it wasn't engaging the engine. The rpm's would go up, but there was no affect on the van speed. The terrain changed, so then I began going downhill and I continued trying to get the van to accelerate to avoid being rear-ended. Finally, the engine engaged and I was able to speed up. This happened one more time during that trip. It has happened a couple of other times since then, briefly, but yesterday, it happened, and I again, was nearly rear-ended, and I had to coast into a parking lot to get out of the way of traffic. (the "check engine" light has never come on while this was happening. ) I went to a mechanic who then test-drove the van, but was "unable to duplicate the problem. " I drove the van home and the problem happened throughout my trip (speeds ranging from 30-45 mph. ) it wasn't until I finally made it home and was parking the van in front of my house that the "check engine" light finally came on. I then took the van to a local auto parts store that will run codes after the engine light comes on. It gave a code for several possible causes, which included electrical issues. Unfortunately, the guy cleared the code, and I am not able to drive the van in order to see if the engine light will come back on. (he did, however, write down what the code could be an indication of - 4 different issues to choose from. ) this is a very dangerous issue, and I have read of numerous other complaints similar to this. Please, look into this matter and do a recall of these vehicles before tragedy strikes!.

I was driving to the store at approx. 40 mph when all of a sudden I noticed my dashboard and my fuel gage went down , my speed dropped I didnt know what was happening . My car was slowing down but since I was going downhill I coasted. I realized my engine had shut off. I panicked but thankfully thought to turn the ignition switch and the car turned back on. I thought it was a fluke. But this issue has occurred several times while driving. The same scenario. I realized by just bumping the key it turns off the engine. If I turn my ignition and if I don't hold it long enough, it will move back to off position. I mean I barely bump it and it can turn off. It has happened while driving at least 4 times. I have not gone to my Chrysler dealership because I didnt want to pay an out of pocket expense and I no longer have the warranty on it.

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.
