Notes: The 2015 Chrysler 200 carries the torch of "never buy the 1st year of a new vehicle generation" with pride.

The 2015 model year is the first year of the Chrysler 200's 2nd generation. It has been plagued by problems from the start. Transmission failure at extremely low mileage, many recalls, problems stalling while driving... the list goes on. Maybe Chrysler should have stuck with the 1st generation.

First problem: The car stalls and/or dies while driving. It did this while my daughter was driving and she had to pull over on the highway. I managed to get it started and drive it home but it would not go over 25 mph. The check engine light, the electronic throttle control light, and the traction control light (?) were all on. Second problem: There is a message to service airbag system comes on. I did some research and found other people wit the same problem. On the yellow wire box under the passenger seat, there was a black latch (?) that clicked when I squeezed. The message went away.

Vehicle looses power while driving; both on the interstate and country roads. Turns itself off. Transmission freezes between 4th and 6th gears. And won't shift, causing loss of power.

12/20/18 car won't start, used 3 newly model vehicles to jump still nothing. Basic mechanical work was preformed still nothing. Car accelerates but no physical mobility, I can drive vehicle with all doors open this model doesn't allow that because of a safety sensor. Car has over 13 codes you tube shows more.

My vehicle jerks when first starting off, engine on and airbag light been on over a year when I first purchase this vehicle they had to shampoo driver seat. After 2 or 3 months I took car for oil change and report the car jerking sometimes when taking off the mechanic took me I didn't need an oil change, and the car jerking was because it was I believe him. They changed my oil for a year and randomly I told them it still would jerk in the city on my job and on interstate.

My airbag light comes on and off, most of the time it stays on though. Also, the car will die after driving and will stall while driving. It also appears that there are some sort of electrical issues with the car and the gears shift strange, sometimes throwing me forward while driving.

The car stalls and shuts off any time the gas tank is filled up. The type of gas does not prevent the situation. The only way to avoid the issue is to not fill the tank completely. It doesn't happen right away 100% of the time. It's happened after I've pulled away from the gas pump and reentered the highway. When this happens, I have to place vehicle in park and restart it. Again this is 100% of the time when I fill my gas tank. Today, I was almost hit by oncoming traffic when my car stalled. I"M very afraid. I'm using today's date but this has been a reoccurring problem.

I can be driving it down the road it will shut it’'s self off. Will not start for about 15 to 20 minutes. This happend last night and when it did I was rear ended. When it does this the breaks lock up no matter how hard U push on them they won’T budge. Also it will try to start but the engine cranks at a really low speed but after awhile takes off. Also if you let it warm up it runs jus fine sometimes. Had it put on machine was told it was a map sensor replaced it and still got the same problem. Changed battery in key fob and car battery and still doing the same thing. Seen numerous people on here having the same issue. After replacing all that took to put back on a machine and was told I can’T help you cause it’'s not throwing any codes what do I do I got a car that I still owe almost 14,000 dollars on that is unsafe to be driving. The car does this when it’'s being driven can let set for hours and stays running but I can’T even make it 3 blocks without it dying and not starting back up for awhile. It’'s pathetic as for the date at the bottom that says when did this happen I’ll put it like this it happens every time I try to go anywhere it should be recalled and properly fixed.

The transmission sensor clusters may have insufficient crimps in the transmission wire harness, and as a result, the transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral. The car is shaking right after I refilled the gas to full. I have been to the dealer to have the same problem fixed over 5 times. However, the same problem occured the next day after I was told the problem was fixed. I was driving the vehicle on the high way. All of a sudden, the transmission broke down and the car lost its power.

I was driving to work one morning and my check engine light came on. So I waited a few days and took it to collierville Chrysler service department on May 30,2017, this is what was done. "cel: Drivability/ check engine light perform dtc inspection, smoke test, tightened gas cap and ran pressure test, passed" and I was good to go. Then in September the check engine light an gas cap light can on again so I went back to the collierville Chrysler service department on 9-12-2017, they did the same check as above except they said I needed to replace the gas cap so I paid for a new gas cap. Then 2 days later the same thing happen again so I called them and got the run around. So after riding around with the lights on for weeks I decided to go back on 10-09-2017 to see if they get this resolved. Collierville Chrysler service department took the car and said they fixed the problem. Then 2 days later it happen again the gas cap light and check engine light. It must be a problem with the car. I don't know what to do. My car was always in motion every time the check engine light/ gas cap light came onw.

Car hesitates while driving. You can feel it hard shift in 5th gear. Check engine light comes randomly on showing code for a mis-fire in cylinder 5. took to dealership and had fixed (supposedly) and not covered by warranty. Car still continues to misfire and surge in 5th gear. Had mechanic change out all spark plugs but the computer still reads misfire. Every other gear seems fine. Car idles rough while stopped and if you let foot off the brake it shakes like its going to fall to pieces. I've owned the car for just over a year and its spent more time in the shop or sitting than I've been able to drive.

My car seems like it wants to die (and does die when I use the fob to start it) when it is started and when it is running....last Sunday (2-26-17) my car began to sputter and vibrate. My car barely had any acceleration and it was hesitating as if it was trying to shift gears. I took it to a mechanic shop the next day and they replace 4 sparkplugs. Another test was redone, the engine light stayed off and all seemed well. After about 30 miles began to sputter yet the vibrating was not as bad; still hesitation and not wanting to accelerate. Wednesday, my fob would not start my car. Sometimes it will start the car but the car shuts itself off before I can get in. My engine light is back on and I am not sure what is wrong. The mechanic wants to start replacing one coil at a time. He also said this type of problem should not be happening with a 2015. (my car flooded in August 2016 and I purchased this Chrysler on September 17, 2016)
