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.

Most of the time the car is stationary and upon cold start. Car has an "extended start" and then stalls. Car sometimes runs ruff and has stalled while in gear. Once while I was driving all of the electrical on the console (A/C, touch screen and all knobs) stopped working. Had to pull over, turn car off and on then drive home with stereo and ac blasting because none of the controls worked. Not on the console or steering wheel. Vehicle has been back to the dealer a dozen time for the same problem with no fix. I have filed complaints with Chrysler. Right now their solution is "the next time it does it, don't try to restart it. Just call and have it towed." Your options below ask when this happed. It has happened every few days since I bought the car on 3/13/2015 but you only give me the option of picking one date.

Car was running beautifully on September 22nd. It was parked in the garage overnight. When I started it the morning of the 23rd, the check engine light flashed and the car was idling very roughly. I drove slowly to the dealer, doug smith Chrysler in american fork, ut. They diagnosed the problem as being a cart and horse concern: Apparently the coil on the #6 cylinder had failed and also the coil driver in the PCM had also failed. They don't know which occurred first and then likely caused the other problem. My concern is that the car was nearly undriveable as it was; what if the PCM had suffered a cascading damage of some sort" especially, what if this had happened while I was traveling 70mph on the freeway? I just think that a component of such importance as the PCM should not fail after only 11000 miles. I now have concerns about the replacement: Will it be brand new or rebuilt? if rebuilt, how reliable will that end up being" I also feel that a spark plug coil should be more robust than to fail at only 11000 miles. I believe this failure could represent a severe danger to myself and possibly to others if it happened while the car was being driven.

When I put my car in drive it bucks, hesitate and pulls off terribly rough, I have took car back to dealer 3 times and they can't seem to find anything wrong, I went to Chicago which is about 3 hrs from my home. I parked went shopping for about 2hrs. Came back hit locks nothing happened, walked closer to car hit locks nothing happened, tried trunk nothing for about 20 min I'm locked out of my car, the car seemed to have lost power.after standing there trying to locks finally it powered on the car had a bad ride at take off I heard noises under hood I continue to drive after the second stop I came back to car no problem it opened, I'm not happy with this car from day one it has been something this is the worst car I have ever had, on;Y had the car for 7months, it was thrown together not manufactured for perfection. This car has a problem with stalling and not wanting to pull off it just sits there then it jumps in gear the take off is very slow. I really need my car I hope there is something that can be done about this, I had a blow out on my front driver side tire hit a small hole on highway the tire instantly burst I was about 300miles from home the tires seem to have been dry rotten. The power lost just happened on 09/19/2015. The other happened stating 03/15.

The car stalled without warning. The car completely locked up and went into park slamming the car stopped. The car was towed to star Dodge in abilene. Pins were repaired. Again at 14172 miles the car stalled without warning on the highway going 65 mph. This time it did not go automatically into park (thank god). Near accident as this was in rush hour traffic. After coasting to the shoulder, the car did start again. This time it was taken to allen samuels Chrysler in fort worth. They found nothing wrong and tightened the pins again. No one with Chrysler can assure us this will not happen again. According to lemmonauto.com there are no replacement parts available for this known issue with Chrysler 200's. Chrysler Corp case manager dawn (214)689-7958 will only say take it to the dealer for repair. I've explained that it's been to the dealer 2X now, no repairs can be made. I have children that I will not let in this car because it's a death trap. This is a ticking time bomb. Who know when it will stall again, because there is no warning, and who know what could happen, not if, but when this occurs. Chrysler is thus far refusing to do anything about this issue. We just need them to trade this car. We need the public to know that this is a known issue that thousands of 200 owner's are having.

I was on my way home from work when at a red light my check engine light goes on, transmission and park break service lights go on and as the light turned green my car did not accelerate. I put my car on park turned my emergency lights and then shifted to drive. My car then kept changing shifts. As an attempt to get my car home which is only 7 min from work I drove it slowly and every stop I made my car would take at least 2-3 minutes to accelerate. As I arrived home the steering wheel got hard and displayed a warning to put emergency break to prevent from rolling.it then displayed service transmission, service park break, service engine. The next day I took my car to the dealership but was told nothing about a recall for my car.
