The contact waited approximately 30 minutes to restart the vehicle. Afterwards, the vehicle operated normally.

The engine stalls when coming to a stop such as a stop light or stop sign. The engine also stalls and shuts off when accelerating after stopping. It stopped in the middle of an intersection while turning out of my apartment complex into a busy main road. I was able to coast off of the road and tried to restart. Upon trying to restart it hesitated to turn over and start. It took about 2 minutes before it finally started and it didn't want to accelerate. There was no warning that it was getting ready to stall. After it started up again a message came up saying that the electronic throttle needed to be serviced. This makes the 3rd time it had stalled but the 1st time it has given me any kind of indication why.

My Chrysler 200 started shutting itself off while driving. The lights and radio stay on but the brakes and steering are manual. The dealership informed me that I was low on oil and that the car is equipped with a safety feature to shut the car off when oil is low. This car is 10 mths old and only 11K miles. It continued after that visit and after shaming Chrysler on twitter, they opted to replace the motor. The problem is this car shuts off while driving. The engines are the same and this problem will kill someone. The auto is not equipped with a low oil light and I have been told to check oil every month! I am picking the car up today with an engine that is new to this car but, I am petrified to drive it. If it shuts off on the freeway, how am I to get over before I get hit. Chrysler states that is no problem if this engine is faulty because they will cover under warranty. What will it take-someone dying? I do not want to be that person. Since I am going to get this death trap I called to make sure they fixed the cruise control. Dealership stated that the car is not on recall. From all my research all 200's are on recall. So, now I have a car that will turn off when the oil gets low (with no warning light to tell you oil is low) and I cannot use the cruise control.
