I parked my car on Sunday mid-day. I tried to leave on Monday morning for the store and it will not move out of park. Nothing has been done other than my researching the net and finding that you've had hundreds of complaints as well as Chrysler's 'partial recall K39' that they're saying will only cover certain VIN's. that is crap! if the spring is broken it's broken. Don't matter where they made it or what stamp is on my dashboard. As a 37 year old medical biller, that has a husband whom works out of town Monday through Friday, with a child at home (12) and my currently having a broken foot....I'm pretty mad that I had to follow Chrysler instructions to their mechanics of how to remedy this problem on their select cars that they are willing to take care of. I took my laptop to the car, sat crunched up in it because there is a heat index out of the roof here so I needed the A/C on, followed their instructions and well what do ya know.... that piece of crap junk spring is broken off the front left pink pulley thing. Now, I get to sit and wait for them to 'decide' at the case management senior escalation team, if they are going to adopt my VIN into this recall coverage. Wth! are you kidding me" I did not make the car. I did not break the car. Their crappy, cheap behinds made a faulty shifter and now we have to take the brunt of it. It is to an extent a safety issue because 'what if' there was an emergency that I had to go to" this is crazy! I tell ya what if... I'd have to hire a taxi to take me to the emergency or call ems to take me a 1/2 block down he street if my sons asthma flared out of control. I'd get stuck not only with a hefty bill tow it, bill to the dealer to repair, but a bill to fix it and ems bill. This is crazy! and I'm not stopping until we get some idiot higher up at Chrysler attention.
