Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2015 model year is the first of the sedan's 2nd generation. Maybe they should have stuck with the 1st generation.

As with last report car stop suddenly and console said to place car in park. Glided off road and had to re-start. Took car in to dealer and they told me it was because the oil was old. Car has 3900 miles. What happened was exactly the problem in R24/NHTSA 15V-470. Service rep took me aside and told a story all should hear. Chrysler knows of this issue and is fighting complaints under warranty if owners are not changing oil at "reasonable" intervals. It already happened at their dealership with a client that wanted the engine replaced. So word to the wise...he knows that changing the oil is not the issue, but was giving us a heads up about changing the oil so not to void the warranty. Sounds like Chrysler may not play nice on the issue they know they have with the 200. So change your oil and keep a record of it!

Same issue again as reported on 2/13/2016. Car shut down. Complete loss of power. Engine light comes on and message says to place gear shift in park and start the car. After a period of time the car re-starts. This is a common tread with owners of this car model. There is a recall for the same model built earlier in 2014.

A followup on complaint #10826086. The loss of power to the Chrysler 200 model is already in effect for earlier made models under R24/15V-470. Look at Jeep recalls 13V-175 and 14V-438 for the Jeep commander and Cherokee. It's the exact same issue.

The 200 has 3500 miles and will loose power without explanation. Driving at a low speed on city street and the car lost power. The engine light will come on and stay on. I did see that manufacturing dates of between 1/7/2014 through 9/23/2014 have been recalled for electrical issues with the power distribution center (pdc) per R24/NHTSA 15V-470. My car was not manufactured during that period, but seems to have the same type of problems that have been reported on this site.

I was driving my brand new Chrysler 200 that I bought 4 months prior and it was completely shutting off in the middle of the road... I lost control of steering until it shut completely off so I could restart it. Very scary when you have your newborn baby and 10 year old in that back seat. Not once did a check engine light come on or any sensor come on to tell me that my vehicle had no oil in it. So I believe the engine, electrical, and sensors are all messed on this vehicle. I do not feel like I should be stuck with it because in the back of my head I no longer feel safe in this vehicle. I am reaching out for help because Chrysler won't and I have owned this care since August and it was in shop for 17 days in January, I have it back but I still don't think it's running correctly.

In January 2015, I purchased a 2015 Chrysler 200S from reedman toll auto world. I owned the vehicle for approximately 3 months and in March, 2015 during a snowstorm I was driving in the vehicle with my fiance and 5 year old son. I was traveling at approx 30mph in bensalem, pa. The vehicle locked up. The parking brake engaged, no power steering, no ABS, no traction control, transmission stopped engaging. I hit the brakes and slide into an intersection. I had my fiance get into the drivers seat and I push the car off the roadway into a side street. At that time I walked my fiance and son home approximately 1 mile to our apartment. I then walked back to the disabled car. I waited for approximately 2 hours for a tow truck to arrive from Chrysler roadside assistance. The vehicle was towed into reedman toll auto world. When the car was looked over it was deem to be fine and I was told to pick it up. I did not do that. I told them I didnt feel safe driving that vehicle any longer. So then I spoke with the general manager of reedman's and they told me they could get me into a different vehicle. I was poorly educated with my options back then and I wanted to just get a safe vehicle for my family. So I purchased a 2015 Chrysler 200C. On January 23th, 2016 I was driving my 2015 Chrysler 200C with my fiance. I was driving at approximately 20mph and the identical situation occurred again. It was 10 months after my last incident and with a totally different vehicle. This time I contacted Chrysler directly. I still havent heard anything from Chrysler. Reedman's told me that there was some snow in there and they removed that and re flashed the computer system and now its "perfect". I find this to be really unacceptable and unsafe. More information including pictures and videos can be provided.
