While driving the vehicle, the engine stopped while making a right turn. The vehicle could not be steered and braking was difficult. Once the vehicle was brought to a stop, the engine was restarted and continued without fail. This is the second time in two weeks that this failure has occurred. It is related to the recent recall notice. I am very unhappy with Chrysler as, after calling them, we were told that there is no plan yet for the fix. We can certainly do the fix ourselves, but at our cost. When calling the dealership to get the new ignition switch, we were told that there is only one in the entire state and it may be difficult to get that part. This is a safety issue and could easily have caused an accident, had another car been coming around the corner.

Position). This is a family van used for many short trips, including starts and stops. Unexpectedly being unable to start the engine, and being unable to turn the vehicle off, remove the key, or lock the vehicle is a serious security issue and a hazard in some situations.
