2014 Chrysler 300 Owner Comments

problem #3

  • miles


The contact owns a 2014 Chrysler 300. Upon coming to a complete stop with the brake pedal depressed, the vehicle surged forward several times without warning. The contact had to apply force to the brake pedal and, in some instances, both feet were applied to the brake pedal to prevent the failure. The vehicle was taken to the dealer more than once and they were not able to replicate and diagnose the failure. The vehicle was parked at the contact's residence due to the fact that the failure could recur without warning. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was not available.

Vehicle was in cruise control mode set at 70mph. Vehicle in front of mine was going slower my vehicle slowed down automatically as it is designed to do. I proceeded to left lane to pass the other vehicle (truck) as I began passing my vehicle accelerated to a speed of over 85mph without my touching either the gas pedal or the res button of the cruise feature. I then had to cancel the cruise control feature and brake the car to slow down. It was terrifying. This happened more then once during my trip. I had the vehicle into Chrysler before because the computer turned the heated seat feature and heated steering wheel feature on without my touching the buttons. The car was reprogrammed to correct this problem and I am wondering if the reprogramming affected the cruise control feature.
