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.

Driver received recall notice R24 for Chrysler (nhsta 15V-470)in the mail during the week of 9/28/15 - 10/2/15. On 10/5/15, while driving at 65mph, car jerked and check engine light came on. Approximately 2 miles later at 65mph, car jerked again, shifted to neutral, and "service transmission" message flashed on the screen next to speedometer. The electrical problem (concerning the recalled part) caused power to the vehicle to cease and driver was forced to coast to shoulder of interstate highway (in rush hour traffic and through weigh station entrance ramp). Car was completely off with no battery power after shifting to neutral. While stopped, driver attempted to restart the vehicle (immediately after pulling over) with no success. After 10 minutes and a few phone calls to figure out what to do, driver was able to restart the vehicle. The check engine light was still illuminated, and the car would not accelerate as usual (max 45mph, still on interstate, still rush hour). The driver was able to slowly drive the car to the dealership, almost being rear-ended twice. The service manager stated driver would be eligible for a complimentary rental only if they were able to diagnose it as a recall defect. The manufacturer's "rep" was able to determine that the problem was in fact due to the recalled part, and a rental was obtained. The car has been in the dealership's car repair parking lot for over two weeks, with no replacement part/repair on its way.

This is a recurring problem. It has happened more than 5 times. While increasing or decreasing speed on the adaptive cruise control system using the steering wheel buttons, the adaptive cruise control is disabled and the car screen alerts the driver that adaptive cruise control is unavailable. The dealership has looked at the car twice. The second time, they replaced the computer module for the acc. This did not fix the problem. This can happen on highway, on city roads, while going fast, while going slow. Vehicle is always going straight, not turning, as it is unsafe to adjust the controls in a turn.

My engine turned off while driving. I was on a one lane ramp, going about 25 or 30 miles per hour around a bend. The transmission was in drive, not park or neutral. I could not restart my engine. Additional safety features such as forward collision warning, lane sense, and park sense were disabled. I was blocking traffic - the only way to get around me was to go up onto the sidewalk, which is not safe. People behind me tried to help by pushing the car, but could not. I had to call the police to send incident response to push me out of the way. The incident response truck also could not push me out of the way, but after rocking my car several times in an attempt to push the car, the engine would start. The check engine light came on and the screen showed a message saying to service transmisison. I drove to a parking lot and called a tow truck to take me to a dealership. I have found many cases of this happening to other 2015 Chrysler 200 owners, and I think there needs to be an investigation and possibly a recall. The dealership cannot tell me what caused the issue, only that their service manual says reflashing the transmission control module should solve the problem. Chrysler coporate also cannot tell me what caused the issue. Several testimonies online say that their car was not fixed by reflashing the tcm. Having your new car die on the road while driving with absolutely no warning is an unacceptable, possibly fatal risk. I only hope if this happens again, I won't be in an intersection or in front of a semi-truck on the highway.
