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.

2007 Chrysler Pacifica Owner Comments

problem #9

My husband was driving the car 2 days after we purchased it. He was coming down a slight incline and trying to yield and turn at an intersection. The power steering went out and the brakes locked up so he could not stop or control the direction of the vehicle. It was very scary with young children in the back seats! no warning lights or sounds alerted him to the failure of the steering or brakes.

Bought in 2007 used, 16000 miles. Last two years, stalls sometimes at low speeds. Loses all power, will not steer, cannot brake. Occurs too randomly to predict. Very dangerous when making turns to join traffic flow as cannot stop or steer car while rolling. Latest example 12/7/15 - nearly at a stop on slight decline, ready to merge with street traffic from parking lot. Suddenly lost power and brake stopped responding and locked up. Steering locked up. Was slowly rolling into oncoming traffic.

The vehicle was turning into parking space, acted like the traction control engaged, power steering function was lost. Vehicle was put in park, engine turned off. Restarted at that time. Owner assumed incident resulted from a slip on fresh rain concrete and resulted in traction control engagement due to sensitivity of traction control feature. This is really not necessary at < 10 mph. Second incident: One week later to the day on July 10, 2015, the vehicle rolled to a stop on residential road. The vehicle passed over an insignificant, small pile of dead loosed grass on right side of vehicle during its rolling to a stop mode. Vehicle steering locked up and engine stalled. Owner made numerous attempts to restart but had to wait 10 minutes before vehicle would restart and park it. Dealership has been notified-appointment scheduled to diagnose.

This is not the first time that my car has stalled out while going under 40 mph, also when making a turn it will stall and I have no brakes or power steering! it is very scary. I almost got hit because of this issue!! I have researched it and found that there are numerous complaints about the Chrysler Pacifica's stalling under the same conditions as mine. There needs to be a recall or something needs to be done. Especially since it is my family car and I have two daughters under the age of 3. I do not want or need a fatality wreck to occur before they do something! I am extremely scared to drive now and it is our only vehicle!

On September 15th I was taking my son to school when all of my idiot lights came on and stayed on. Once I got back home and turned the car off I noticed that something was still running. After opening the hood I realized it was my ABS system that want shutting off. I was able to disconnect the sensor but have been too fearful to drive it since then. My father ran a code checker and nothing was showing up except the fuel cap (which was replaced but still showing that warning light). He drove the car and noticed that the speedometer wasn't working.

When driving, our 07 Pacifica will randomly lose power and there will be no brakes and no steering. I have to put it in neutral and restart the engine while the car is still in motion. This has occurred on the freeway and also around town. It is most noticeable when I am approaching a corner or stop light/ stop sign and slowing down to turn or to stop. On the freeway, I was not slowing down or preparing to stop when it happened. The check engine light and etc light (electronic throttle control light) come on when it happens. We have taken our car to non-Chrysler dealerships/auto shops over the summer because it's less expensive to scan. The car was in the shop three times this summer, and the problem was not corrected. This is a frightening occurrence and we may have to take it in to our Chrysler dealership anyway.

Pacifica 6-cyl

  • 95,000 miles
The vehicle dies--especially when coasting toward a stop sign or light, or down hills--usually at lower speeds, though several times at speeds of 40 mph. The power brakes and power steering cease. The only option is to shift into neutral and restart the car. Going around corners at speeds higher that 25 is difficult, this car has been in the shop several times for the same thing; they can't really find anything wrong but have charged me over $2500 this year alone. I'm afraid to drive this as this has been happening on nearly a daily basis. And taking it to the dealer seems futile. Is this part of the recall? I'd hate to see my wife or someone else injured or killed because the safety systems on the vehicle stopped working at the same time--such as happened with the GM products. Updated 3/3/2015

While driving, the engine just stopped/stalled. Steering, brake and gas pedals stopped functioning. I have to wait until the car fully stopped. Scary and feels so helpless in the middle of the road!
