My car will die while driving or puts itself in neutral while on the hwy. We have almost been in 5 or more accidents becasue the car behind us has no idea my car has stopped while going 65 mph and car just dies. We have been in touch with the dealer they have tried fixing this car at least 5 times as of now we have has their rental for car for over 35 days my vehicle has 19,000 we bought it brand new. Also would like to go on record if anything happens to me or my children because of this defect I gave the dealership many chances to fix they have even called someone from out of town to fix and I'm still waiting I do not want to die or get injured due to this problem also the problem started at 306 miles and has not been fixed yet

Vehicle lost power while pulling into traffic. 2016 Chrysler 200 S with 2614 miles...engine was warm. I stepped on the gas and lost all power (electrical), followed by engine stall behavior, power loss, stall behavior, then transmission knob light flashes "D" and instrument cluster says to select gear again. Was nearly rear ended and/or T-boned by oncoming traffic. Dealer performed 4 flash updates today.

Bought this 2016 Chrysler 200 S 4 cyclinder in July 2016 with only 4900 miles on it. Car was a dealer program car still under factory warranty. Today, 8/22/2016 at 6157 miles the car stalled while my teenage sons (3 of them) were driving on city streets to school (this is the car they drive everyday). The car stalled while driving three separate times losing all power with a message in the dash reading "shift to P". once shifted to park the car did start but only after making an odd noise while pushing in the ignition button. Needless to say this is extremely dangerous to have a car lose power while on the road especially with new teenage drivers. Bought this car in large part because of its safety ratings but this clearly is the exact opposite of safe. I will take to dealer in the morning to see what they say. Lots of other complaints about same issue although most seem to be with the 2015 not 2016. Nonetheless, how can one feel safe again putting their children behind the wheel? no idea what caused this issue. The drivetrain does not shift smoothly either particularly when transitioning from reverse to drive when coming to complete stop.
