My vehicle has been subjected to the NHTSA 14V-234 recall for the rear quarter vent window switch since the end of 2014. Both my local deal and Chrysler have been unable to provide replacement parts to repair the vehicle for five months. My local dealer has no timeline on when parts will be available. Per the letter I received, I am filing a written complaint because Chrysler has been unable to remedy this defect within a reasonable time.

I was driving down the road and the van stalled as I was driving. I had no power steering, no power brakes, etc. Luckily there was no one behind me and was able to muscle the van to the side of the road. This is the 3rd time this has happened to my wife and I in the last month. We have not had this issue before. After I parked the car, I was able to restart the engine and drive it. Upon further investigation while driving I noted that I could turn the key fob from the "on" position to the "acc" position as I was driving with very little effort! I did some research and found that there is a recall for 2010 T&cs for ignition switch issues similar to mine. When I called Chrysler, however, they informed me that my 2010 was not covered under the L25 recall. Please help. This is obviously extremely dangerous and I have to drive my 2 kids and my pregnant wife in this thing.

Van was parked in driveway when smoke was witnessed coming out of the window. When door was opened, it revealed an open flame near the rear quarter vent window switch. Fortunately, damage by the flame was minimal. The switch practically melted. A second witness quickly pulled out the switch and cut the wire to stop the shorted circuit. This event occurred around August 2014. The dealership was notified of the need to replace the part. As of the time of this posting on May 20, 2015, Chrysler has not replaced the part despite the recall issued sometime around June 2014. A call to Chrysler revealed that it is unlikely any dealership has the part. This is, by far, an unreasonable time to remedy the problem which still is uncertain of a repair date.

The car was warming up, in park, while I got my husband into the passenger side. Moments later, our dr appointment was canceled so I told my husband to turn the car engine off and give me the keys so I could get him back into the house without having to go to the driver's side. When he turned the engine off and handed me the keys, the car jumped into reverse. With the passenger door opened I tried physically to stop it. My fingers became impaled in a 4X4 post. My husband pushed the shifter straight up into park and the car stopped. I had my phone in my pocket and called a neighbor to back the car up to release my fingers. I needed 13 stitches between two fingers. I can't remember the exact date in Jan 2013 so had to fill in an incorrect day number so that the form would accept the year and month. My husband was in a wheelchair at the time and life was hard. However, I called the dealership in salisbury, md where the car had been purchased and told them what happened. I am sure they never reported this and now that I have found this form, I decided to make an official report. I have also had numerous electrical problems with my car that the dealership could never find. They finally found a short but it was not until my car was acting crazily by the time I got it to the dealership. I don't know what failed so I put down electrical because I have had nothing but problems with the electrical system from the sliding doors found open upon my return to the windshield wipers going on and the car dashboard lighting up and slowing down--that is when the dealership finally found a short. After that, I became paranoid and the back seats wouldn't go into the stow position but it was because I had some trash that I couldn't see that obstructed the seats from going into the stow position.

All of a sudden the buttons on the driver door that controls everything stopped working. It's hard to position the mirrors an is hard to see out of them because I can't control them with the nine working buttons an have to do it manually outside of the vehicle since the window won't go down either. I have been trying to get this recall fixed an have my name in at a couple places that say they are waiting for parts to come in from Chrysler. It's been almost a year maybe now an I still have not heard anything from anyone on getting this recall fixed. I'm very frustrated with this whole recall situation.
