2011 Chrysler 200 Owner Comments

In 2011, I purchased a new Chrysler 200S. The list price was $27, 835. In 2015, the heat in my vehicle stopped working and only blew out cold air. I was told by the Chrysler mechanic that I needed to replace the heating core. I went to lloyd's automotive and paid $300 for a heating flush as lloyd's informed me that a car that is only 4 years old should not have issues with the heating core. Later in 2015 my heat went out again. I took my car back to lloyd's auto and was informed that I should have the heating core replaced. The parts were on back order because other owners of this car were also having issues with the heating core. I did some research online and found that this was accurate but Chrysler had not ordered a recall. Owners of this car were having to have the heating core replaced. I reside in Minnesota where the temperature drops below zero. I could not get my car repaired. This limited my social outings as I have a child and could not have him driving around in a cold car. I feel that Chrysler should recall this vehicle to fix the heating core.

Continued problems with heating system on Chrysler 200, year 2011, touring model, V6 pen star engine: Lack of heat on passenger side, & side windows fogging up. Little to no heat on driver's side. I have taken the car to the Chrysler dealership 4 X and each time, they flush and check the heating lines and say there is nothing wrong, that I have heat. The heat seems a little better for a short while, then the same thing happens again, I lose heat and only cold air is blowing out of vents with heat setting on max. I paid for an extended warranty when the vehicle was purchased new. I am told each time there is nothing wrong. There has to be something wrong! I never owned a vehicle with this problem and am very disappointed. What am I to do with no heat and subzero temps.?? now the driver's side has little to no heat and windows are fogging up. There must be a manufacturer defect in the heating system on these vehicles.
