Car started miss firing one cold morning. Shakes at low RPM and throws a cel. Barely over 100K miles and it ticking very loudly which makes me believe it is the rocker arms. Now instead of being covered the cost to repair I have to pay out of pocket on a car I am still financing. Simply ridiculous, never owning a Chrysler ever again.

Timing chain failure. Caused major engine damage and failure. I was driving on the highway at 55mph and the car suddenly stalled and would not start. Had it towed to the mechanic and learned that the timing chain had broken and caused catastrophic failure/damage in the engine. I had to replace the engine, costing nearly $7K.

"takata recall" the check engine light continues to come on intermittently. There does not seem to be an actual problem. The light may come on and stay on for a few hours or a few days.

There is a recall on my car for alternators failing/over heating effecting circuitry, that can stop the car while in motion or end up in flames. This is extremely dangerous I was notified 3 months ago and still no remedy I want my car fixed. I am scared to drive my car.. my car trunk has opened while driving. Part of the same problem?
