I was driving in light traffic and the engine suddenly cut off. I was traveling at about 40mph. Fortunately there was no wreck. This has happened a total of 4 times now in the few months that I have owned the vehicle. I bought the vehicle on October 3, 2014.

The engine just shuts off without warning. Sometimes it will restart immediately, sometimes it just cranks for a min, then kicks over and runs rough eventually smoothing out. We have noticed the key is rotating out of the on position, sometimes fully into acc, sometimes just a little out of on. 2 dealers have looked at it, but the computer doesn't log any codes and they cant replicate the issue, so the mechanics can't fix anything. This falls inline with the L25 recall issues. This van was built 2 weeks after the L25 recall stops. I have found the parts online for under $20 but cannot replace them as the computer needs programmed. This vehicle is dangerous to us and everyone else on the road around us as we have no power steering or power brakes.

This incident has happened several times. Car stalls while driving at any speed. It will then restart immediately. This is a dangerous situation and almost caused a couple of wrecks. Chrysler says there are no recalls on this vehicle and hard to diagnose. Yet on other 2010S 4.0 vehicles there are recalls for the exact same problem.

Vehicle ignition turns off while slowing down (I.e. 15-30 mph). Power steering and power brakes become inoperable almost causing multiple rear end collisions. Car must come to a stop - be put in park - and restarted. This has happened 9 times in the last two months - twice in the last two days. Chrysler dealer could not find any issues and did routine transmission and fuel injection maintenance just over a week ago. Problem has only gotten worse.

Vehicle shuts off without warning during operation. After driving for about 3.5 miles vehicle shut off in the middle of a left hand turn through an intersection. Radio remains on, but engine, power steering, power brakes stop working, traction control dash light illuminates. Electronic key appears to still be in the run position, and the vehicle can be restarted by shifting to neutral and turning key to off position and back to start. Has happen multiple times, taken to dealership and they were unable to identify a problem. Chrysler also refused to mention or acknowledge existing recall for what appears to be this exact problem because this vehicle was manufactured a few days outside the effective dates of the recall.

Town & Country

Van engine will randomly stall when in drive and in motion which leaves the driver unexpectedly without power steering and power brakes (and perhaps without active airbags?). this has happened several times within the past month. The local Chrysler dealer is unable to duplicate or find the issue. No active or any relevant codes (dtc's) stored in the PCM. Observations: Has only happened on a gravel road (luckily - with low speeds). Traction control light is illuminated every time. Upon coming to a stop and once the van is put back into park or neutral, it will immediately restart.

Hose and tube, heater return, heater supply and return asm Chrysler pn 04677603al has 2 plastic Y-connectors(going to front seat heater, rear seat heater and transmission) that splits at the seam and antifreeze sprays onto hot engine causing steam that impairs vision of the road.the one that split on ours was the Y-connector closest to the engine block(probably gets the hottest antifreeze).the local Chrysler dealer parts person says they probably sell 3 of these $105 plus tax asm per week so he knew what I needed before I finished telling him all the details.he just needed my VIN no. To get the right pn as there is yet another pn for the 3.8 litre engine that has the same issue (and maybe other pns for other engine sizes.the dealer says there is no recall for this common failure on the 2008-2012 models.
