My wife had just filled up the van with gas and, while driving down the road, she said she heard some "chimes"...then all power to the van shut off. No power steering, traffic in front and behind her. I see that others on this site have had the same problem after getting gas. The van only has 56,000 miles. I'll be calling Chrysler tomorrow. I did get the lifetime powertrain warranty back in 2007 when purchased. I was not pleased to read that the ntsb would not require a recall from Chrysler until more evidence ( ie motor vehicle accidents and/or fatalities) occur. My wife no longer feels safe driving the van with our two youngs boys.

After green light, I made the right turn from a small road to main road. When the car was half way into the main road (about 45 degree), the engine just dead, and a lot of symbols lighted up on the panel. I have to completely turn the key to off position, and re-ignite the car. When this incident happened, there is nothing attached to the key. Only car key itself was inside the ignition hole. I contacted Chrysler a few month back, reported the same issue happened twice while I called them last time. They told us they were aware this issue and were reviewing it, and suggested us to remove all other keys from key chain. This time I'm just reporting the incident on the government website, so others can see and hopeful Chrysler will recall the car for this issue.

On several occasions within the past 2 years our van has stalled within 1-2 miles of leaving a gas station. On each of those occurrences the auto shutoff function of the gas pump was used to terminated fueling. On one specific occasion the van stalled in the middle of an intersection. If it had been rush hour it would have presented a significant safety issue for everyone around. On other occasions when manually terminating fueling the van has stalled. The problem apparently occurs at a certain level in the tank when it is approaching full.

Vehicle has a shuddering effect while driving between 38-55 mph. The trans-axle has been rebuilt multiple times and lasts apprx. 12000 miles and then has to be rebuilt again. As the miles progress up from the rebuild the shuddering increases and the vehicle becomes a danger to drive. Chrysler position is that they fixed the issue and it is our problem. We are currently involved in a warranty suit against Chrysler, our attorney is krohn & moss. The case is scheduled for trial in Feb. 2013.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Town and country. When the contact places the vehicle into drive without depressing the accelerator pedal, the vehicle accelerates on its own. The failure is intermittent and also occurs when the vehicle is placed into reverse. The vehicle had to be towed to the dealer, but was not diagnosed. The current mileage was 7,000 and failure mileage was 3,000.

Vehicle unable to go in reverse up an inclined driveway without difficulty and shuttering in the drivvetrain. Chyrstler engineers and dealer service manger told me this is normal state for this vehicle and I should go up the driveway faster and without slowing or sopping to avoid the shutter. This is a safety issue when you have many children in the neighborhood, you have to go slow up the driveway to make sure you do not run anyone over or hit an object. I am not a trained reverse race car driver. All of the other vehicles I have had in my driveway did not have this issue. We also have reported hard shifting at slow speeds where the vehicle actually lurches forward. This is dangerous when you are in areas where crosswalks are present such as the park, shopping areas, shool zones etc. Chrysler stated this too was normal.
