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.

I have brought my car to the dealership repair shop 18 times about something is wrong with my transmission. I have all paperwork to back it up that these technicians and Chrysler's star keep telling me that either they don't hear anything or no it's normal. Well today my check engine light came on and the screen said service transmission. But there's nothing wrong with it I thought. To make matters more upsetting to me on Wednesday the 23rd of September I got a call from the dealership if the tech can take it home overnight 9 miles away to see if what I feel or hear (hesitation, rattling, and jerking) is true. Normal yet again! by the way the airbag light is still on waiting for them to call because they are waiting to get a new wiring harness to fix the issue. The airbag part has been in the shop 7 times going on 8 and has been repaired that many times. Oh and the airbag a so called safety issue isn't really a safety issue according to the dealership and Chrysler. They sent me home with it. The same tech that said the car tranny is normal. I have children and yet they keep telling me the 2015 Chrysler 200 is suppose to be this way. Someone even had the nerve to guarantee me that if I'm involved in an accident it will deploy. Chrysler and the techs that go through all this training still can not fix a car with issues. Even with my car having stayed over the 30 day mark with the same issues that can not be resolved Chrysler will not buy back my car. Please someone look into it.

My airbag light was going on and off throughout the day. I brought it to the dealer and they didn't find any codes but the light was off. I went down the road and it turned back on so I went back. They found the same code that's been giving me issues regarding the passenger seat. 7 times for the same issue. I had brought my car back and forth since March 2015 for the tranny issue. It jerks, hesitates, and rattles. On a serious note my neck hurts cause it causes me to jerk forward. All Chrysler keeps doing is reprogramming my computer on the tranny but it doesn't work. I have over 17 work orders, over 30 days of staying in the shop, and all they do is reprogram it per Chrysler star orders. Recently I went to reverse the vehicle and it shot forward then knocked into reverse. The buyback program is a lie. Please do not purchase the Chrysler 200. It's just a headache and a waste of money.

I was at a stop sign with my spouse and I was taking a right hand turn. The car didn't move at all then all of a sudden it lunged forward causing us to jerk back and forth. I still have lower back pain because of this and my spouse neck was hurting for a couple of weeks. Other than that I have several issues that had yet to be resolved. There is a rattling sound coming from the engine compartment. They told me it was a knock and I have tried different brands of gas and it 's still there. The car still lunges forward from a stop even though it has had an update on its system multiple times. When you put the car in park it rolls forward quite a bit. 2 times it jumped out of park and into reverse. I have had an airbag issue 5 times and today it is at the dealership to be repaired again. It is the right side airbag. Connectors were changed and wiring 4 times. Car hesitates a lot especially from a stand still. I have almost gotten into accidents due to the fact that when I was taking a left on a major road from a complete stop the car rolled a little and didn't go. It hesitated jerked hard and went really slow. A grinding noise came from the tranny. Another issue I have is that my car vibrates. I don't have no ac nor radio on and it just vibrates. The tech told me that Chrysler star will not do anything for my vehicle just updates. I'm paying for a car that spends about a week in the shop once a month since April. No one can figure it but they can hear the rattling and feel the sound. I even had one tech told me that I should deal with it that I am not the only one complaining but star isn't going to do anything about it. Yet again it is at the shop today getting an update and the airbag being repaired.

My Chrysler 200 was impacted on the driver's side most of the damage was to the left fender and driver's door. The impact was hard enough in my opinion for the side airbags to release but nothing happen my wife's head hit against the driver's door. I have pictures but do not see a place to upload. Thanks
