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: I hope I can stop you from buying this vehicle before you find out that it won't be able to stop you.

Journey

Intermittent non-function of power windows, interior dome lights and dash lights cannot be activated or controlled with steering column controls, rear wiper washer motor activates when rear wiper is turned on, but turns off when the controls are advanced to the spray function. Keyless unlock intermittently non-functional. Took vehicle to dealership and was diagnosed as a faulty totally integrated power module (timp). Unfortunately the Journey was omitted from the timp recall campaign leaving the customer on the hook for the repairs. This vehicle should be added to the recall list as it poses a safety risk of lack of wipers and other possible safety issues while driving.

Journey 6-cyl

  • 78,000 miles
Driving down the interstate, all of a sudden my heating/cooling would shut off along with my radio. Then it would come on. It did this several times. Shortly after that, my turn signals no longer worked and it caused me to almost get in an accident. I was driving approximately 65-70 mph. It continued to do this even after stopping. A week later, as I got up to go to work in the morning, it wouldn't start. It would just click when attempting. It wasn't sending the signal to the starter to get it going. I was stranded. I feel like my vehicle is possessed and it's really scary.

My vehicle has an ignition issue. The key will turn back to acc mode while trying to start or going down the road. This has been reviewed by beaman auto in murfreesboro, tn and they agree that the ignition is the issue. The dealer/Chrysler refuse to deal with this under the ignition switch recall.

Vehicle has intermittent problem where, when starting, only a "click" sound is heard, and engine does not start. Told originally, that the battery was bad. It was replaced. Problem recurred. Then told the alternator and starter were bad, so they were replaced. The problem recurred. Service department told us that software on the "computer" needed to be updated, so that was done. The problem continues to recur. When vehicle won't start, jumping it won't help. We have to just try over and over again. Sometimes it starts after a few tries, sometimes we have to wait 20-30 minutes before engine finally starts. One instance, the vehicle didn't start for an hour. The last communication with the dealer, after having this problem for a number of years, was that they can't fix it because they have no idea what is wrong. This was after spending hundreds of dollars on what turned out to be unnecessary repairs

The horn goes off intermittently sometimes just sitting in the driveway. This is dangerous as fellow motorists or pedestrians think that I am blowing my horn at them.

Horn beeps at random times, while parked in driveway, while driving, etc. This causes a severe issue when your horn beeps at others for no reason when driving down road. This seems to be a known issue with this model, however it appears Chrysler doesn't fully understand the cause or fix.

problem #313

Aug 132016

Journey

  • 65,000 miles
The horn randomly honks without pushing the horn button. This happen both while sitting unattended as well as while driving. Very distracting to both driver and others driving near by. We had to pull the fuse's disabling the horn to be able to drive the car. Dealer has been unable to resolve. It appears to be a common problem as you can find videos online of the make and model doing the exact same thing our car does. Why isn't there a recall on this unsafe condition?
