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.

I have been having issues with this car since day 1 and nobody will do anything about it. First it act like it wants to cut off while I'm driving, then it went to acting like it didn't want to start and now my car has been sitting up for months and will not start at all. It's reading airbag systems and warming engine wait to start. When I wait it still won't start. I'm still paying american car center my money for something I can't even drive and they keep telling me someone will get back with me and never do.

Air bag sensor, cooling thermostat and hosing. Shocks headlight issues electrical. I have put two thermostat and changed hosing twice. There are sever recalls listed on the same make year and model and under my VIN there's no recalls yet I'm experiencing the same issues that were recalled on the same year make and model. This does not make since why isn't my car covered for the recalls. I took my car to Chrysler dealer and called cooperate and they said my car isn't covered but there's recalls with the same issues for the same year make and model.

Current airbag light is on and dealer says it isn't covered under warranty but that it may or may not malfunction. Total cost for repair is $2500. They say it's an issue with closed loop feedback

I was involved in an accident with my car. A car turned in front of me while I had the right of way. I did not have time to even hit the brakes. So the front of my car hit the vehicle. I was going about 40 mph. The whole front bumper came off and the steel support bar and the frame was twisted. My airbags never deployed. I did sustain injuries! this was not the first issue I had with this car. I bought it in 2017 and a week later the car started downshifting as I was driving all the time. It would stall and the transmission light would come on. I brought it to Chrysler and was told that the original owner had S6arted the recall process on the transmission!! I was infuriated that I was not told. After rental cars because I couldnt use it while the recall stuff was being done. And me bringing it back and forth 3 times with the problem still persisting! yet again the car downshifted in traffic and was forced to go off the road. Finally they replaced the transmission. A year later and my car still does not switch gears right and the check engine light never goes off!!! I am now gonna sue the hell out of Chrysler!!

Airbag light comes on intermittently and I had it to the dealer once who stated it was a seat wiring issue and fixed it... so I thought, now 3 months later the light is back on intermittently and the estimate to fix it is over $ 3,000 because 2 airbags need to be replaced/fix. My understanding is that there are older 2015 Chrysler 200 models that have a recall to fix this same problem but Chrysler hasn't and won't extend it through all the 2015 Chrysler 200 models. It is a safety issue and if it is happening still in the same year later models, don't you think they never resolved the issue and kept building cars knowingly?? hmmmm

My husband got was leaving work today 6/12/19 and pull out from his job to enter traffic but once he was straight in the lane the car began to slow down so he had to pull into a gas station to try and get back started which took about 5 mins of the car winding before it started. So when he got home I had to take my daughter to summer camp and as soon as I made a right turn onto the street and acceralted the car began to shut down again and took about 15 mins in a highly traffic area before it restarted but now the air bag light is stuck on and a warning engine wait light also came on before the car started

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.

A few days after I bought the car the air bag sensor came on. The dealership said it had something to do with the wiring and seats. They wouldnżT fix the problem. I have read where the Chrysler 200 had recalled for this exact problem but havenżT received a recall notice. The vehicle was in park and came on when I started the car.
