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.

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 wouldn┐T fix the problem. I have read where the Chrysler 200 had recalled for this exact problem but haven┐T received a recall notice. The vehicle was in park and came on when I started the car.

"takata recall". my airbag light sensor on the dash of my vehicle lit up along with the seatbelt light while I was driving by myself with the seatbelt on correctly and nothing sitting in any of the passenger seats. The dash displays a message of "service airbag system". when coming to a stop, the dash displays"driver seatbelt unbuckled" while my seatbelt is buckled. I have checked the vehicle for recalls and none are currently listed with the NHTSA or the dealership under my particular VIN. I have had the vehicle diagnosed at a Chrysler dealership/service center and was notified that the orc ("occupant restraint controller") was non responsive. They (Chrysler service center employee) informed me that I was responsible for the care and maintenance of the safety device that is defective in my vehicle. While sitting in park with the vehicle motor running in a parking lot there were three loud pops in my vehicle and a smelly smoky substance throughout the vehicle. I did not see any air bags visibly deploy.

Parking brake sensor is faulty. Dashboard says parking brake is on. However I reset the park and light on dash should go off. Doesn't. seat belts alarm stays on when seat belts are all clicked closed. Faulty. Air bag for passenger seat always says broken & not working, therefore if in a accident I can sue Chrysler for injuries because air bag won't deploy. Transmission shifting is jerky and not smooth. Faulty needs to be recalled for these 4 items.

I was involved in a 3car accident yesterday 10-10-16 Thursday where I was the middle car on a city street approaching a red light to stop. I'm not sure if my veh was completely at a stand still of it I was still in motion at about 3mph or less but another car ran into me forcing me into the van in front of me. Although my car filled with smoke and I could smell rubber, and the icon on my dash shows the air bags came out- but they did not. I didnt realise the my car assumed the airbags came out until I got in the car to drive away and the seatbelt was and still is locked as if im not suppose to be driving because my car believe the airbags are out at this time and im unable to drive it and they are not which leads me to believe there may be a faulty parts issue going on with my car.I have contacted my manufacturer but have heard notanything so far except it was moved up to their legal dept.
