Upon returning to the sales office I was informed that because of the backlog in paperwork there is a discrepancy in dates of when the work was completed. A salesperson advised me the the tipm and battery need to be replaced and the cost is $1153 plus tax. October 24, 2014 a recall for (p54) was put into effect.

While driving along the highway, with cruse control on, the vehicle lost power and decelerated. The etc and traction control lights came on on the dash. After pulling to the side of the road the vehicle was restarted. After being restarted the vehicle drove normally. This scenario has happened three times at highway speeds and once during acceleration. Around the same time of onset with the power loss issue the vehicle will not start intermittently. Sometimes it starts after several minutes, sometimes it does not start for several hours.

Three to four days per week the car will not start. Turn the key and you get nothing but a click. I have only owned the vehicle for 2 months and it has done it since the very beginning. Have had the dealership and a private mechanic look it over and they have found nothing. It sounds very similar to the issue being corrected by recall now. Although this vehicle, so far, has not stalled while driving thank god. Am not happy that my "new to me" car is so unreliable.

Just like many 2009 and 2010 Journey owners, I too have experienced the vehicle not turning over to start. It has happened approximately 2 dozen times in the past 2 months at random. Sometimes the vehicle will not start 3 times in one day and then the problem will not occur for another week. Once the key is in the ignition and I turn it, I have battery power, it simply will not push through to actually start the vehicle. This is very irritating and I have not been able to duplicate for the dealer so of course they will do nothing for me. I also have noticed that on the freeway, when getting above 60 the steering wheel feels shaking which is quite terrifying and then if I go to break, it feels very wobbly. Again, not something that I can reproduce at the dealer and therefore cannot be fixed. I loved my car for the first couple years I owned it, but lately it is not up to par and worries me to drive with my 2 kids in fear of the unpredictable steering issue or being stranded if it decides to not start at all.

The vehicle will fail to start initially. After several attempts the vehicle will start and the check engine light will appear. Also sometimes while driving the vehicle will cut out and the dash will go blank and have all of the warning lights illuminated, I. E. Abs, airbags, esc, tpms, engine mil, and service awd. The wipers will turn on by themselves and the blinkers or hazard lights wont work. This is concerning due to the lack of availability to warn other drivers on the road.

The vehicle would not start after sitting for a few hours. We had driven the vehicle all day. We have had this issue before but when using the backup key. Thought maybe this was the issue it was not. I used the keys my wife uses every day. This is becoming a big issue now. When it was intermittent and would start it was ok but it is becoming more frequent. We live in a rural area and my wife drives 40 minutes to work every day. If this issue happens when she is at work there will be nothing we can do about it. I am paying alot of money for this vehicle and need Chrysler to figure out what this problem is and issue a recall as I can see that I am not the only one with this issue. It is gonna end up costing me alot of money I dont have. I will be honest if they cant fix the issue I will not be able to pay for towing and will not be able to make the payments if this issue is not resolved and I have to pay to have it looked at. I have an extended warranty on the vehicle which is up in 3000 miles. At 200 miles back and forth to work and running 2 teenage kids around that will not be long, Chrysler needs to figure out this issue now before someone gets killed. Where my wife works is not the best part of town and it is all expressway driving at high speeds. If this issue turns into the stalling on the highway she could easily be killed in rush hour driving. I am not the only one with this problem. Fyi had the brakes done too. Funny since it is all highway driving.
