  • 17,000 miles


The contact owns a 2012 Chrysler 200. The contact stated that the ABS warning light illuminated as the front end exhibited a loud metallic noise. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where a diagnostic was performed, which located the failure at the driver's side front wheel bearing. In addition, the ABS system was faulty. The dealer disconnected the ABS system. The driver's side front wheel bearing was not repaired. The contact also wanted to add that the water pump was replaced due to loud noises that were emitted while driving. The failure mileage was 17,000 and the approximate current mileage was 21,000.

The brakes have a high pitched squeal either in reverse or forward for the first mile of driving, but on occasion it has happened while driving for a while to. I took to the dealership and they said there is nothing they can do because they are steel brakes with metal on metal and it is normal. They said it replaces the abestoes brakes. I know other people with new cars and do not have this issue.

Driving vehicle to investigate symptoms and during regular casual driving the car stalled, hydraulic brakes went and steering locked while slowing through a school zone. I'm a certified tech with H-D, kawasaki, BMW, and have never had a service manager deny a request that involved serious systems like this until today. That is why I'm filing this complaint on your site, I was told by the S.M. that they couldn't get my 29 day old 200 in before next week Monday! this is not a safe car, anyone reading this please do not buy this car!!!! mdm.

When slowing down almost to a stop, the vehicle downshifts hard. It cause a shutter or jerk and you can feel even in the brakes. Feels awful and cannot be normal. Also, when accelerating, the vehicle pulls hard to the right.
