problem #4

200 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


no heat, smells like antifreeze coolant through the vent

I bough this Chrysler 200 thinking it was awesome, it has had nothing but problems from day1.

I am seeing endless complaints of same problems, Chrysler doesn't want to fix them, which are caused by poor manufacturing. A law suit will help. My 2012 200 died on the freeway , I was stranded in the cold.

the engine blew a head gasket, from overheating. I replaced the engine. Next the transmission started jerking and almost through me through the windshield. It is in the shop getting the transmission swapped out now, because it is bad the dealership said. The remote start doesn't work, had that fixed too and is bad again. The blend door actuator is bad on the passenger side, which is a know problem. The problems are getting to be more and more and more expensive. Please comment on all your problems here so Chrysler takes care of business.

200 Touring V6

air conditioner went out no warning. one side blows warmer than other side. not enough force (blowing force) from dash vent as opposed to other vehicles, no a/c air felt in back seat of vehicle. perhaps with all 2012 chrysler 200's sold nationwide. other problems: delay when switching from low to high beam after dark, possible electrical problem. vehicle was purchased new. visors seem to lose their screws and fall off. doors are not air sealed when closed, possible insulation problem has whistling noise after a certain speed is attained.

makes a clicking sound

Paid over $120 for an estimate, the guy said it did not make the noise long then the a/c started working. He "said" he recharged it. But as soon as I got in the vehicle, it instantly started back making the annoying azz "click, click, click" clicking noise. Now they want me to pay almost $700 bucks ($674.01 to be exact) to get the damn thing fixed. They are not even 100% sure it will resolve the problem!!!!

problem #1

Oct 292012

200 Limited 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles

blows cool air when heat is on then gradually warms

The problem was never fixed by Chrysler. ON GOING PROBLEM TIL PRESENT. There are other major issues with this vehicle. Extreme vibration, pulls to the right constantly, water pump went bad at 12000 miles trans not shifting correctly, fuel mileage is below vehicle specs, vehicle been align several times and it chrysler is unable to correct the issue. Steering has been straightened several times but it as well is the same unable to be fixed by chrysler. Referring back to the pulling to the right when driving regardless of roads keeps a constant strain on my arms and hands. I have hired an attorney from Chicago but he states Chrysler will not take the vehicle back or give me my money back. The attorney states the case is only worth 4000 dollars which would be my settlement after attorney fees. I gave 32k for the vehicle plus a trade in. I feel this is unjust and is not fair business practice. My expert that the attorney said we needed cost me 250 dollars and he stated that the vehicle was unsafe to drive. But it is the only vehicle I have to drive because I am disabled single mother with one daughter. I dont have the money to rent or buy another vehicle. With the attorney saying one thing and I experiencing the problems which I feel would be ongoing if I even settle. If I settle for this amount then I am stuck with a vehicle that is unable to fix according to Chrysler.

Anyone have any suggestions of what I should do or contact regarding these issue? Additionally, other problems are occurring that I have notice and reported to Chrysler but no resolutions on those as well.
