When using overhead console button or key fob to open the rear lift gate when the vehicle is in park, engine running or not - no difference- the automatic gate will open fully and then close immediately on anyone standing under it trying to access the cargo area. When opening the lift gate manually it will open fully but will not remain open without someone holding it open or putting some type of block in the mechanism. The lift gate malfunction is quite hazardous as it will come down on top of a person and will not stop if anything is in the way, such as an appendage or a child.

1 August 2015 I had an oil change and was notified that my spare tire was dangling underneath the car. Efforts to crank up the tire to seat properly failed. I don't ever recall lowering the spare tire since I've had the van. Today I had the spare tire winch mechanism replaced for $265.57. My concern was safety, since the continuous wobbling of the tire might eventually fray the cable to the point where it could break. If the tire broke loose, particularly while on a high-speed interstate highway, its impact on the fuel tank could be catastrophic.....updated 11/13/15

The rear evaporator on the a.C. unit has failed. Chrysler has not addressed this on-going problem.

Driving on road at 50 mph. The engine just just off. Drove off the road into woods luckily no accident. The car then started back up right away. I had to reverse into on coming traffic. I had 3 young kids in car at the time as well. Put me in a scary situation. Had work done on ignition system, tune up, belt changes and a few valve sensors replaced. Had this issue occur before with my wife.
