We stopped to eat at a restaurant. I was in the front passenger seat. My husband unlocked the car and I pulled on the door handle, but the door wouldn't open. We tried a few times and still couldn't open it. My husband tried from outside of the car and couldn't open it that way either. I was stuck in the car. Fortunately I am a limber person and was able to climb out through the 2nd row. However, if a passenger were disabled or too large to climb to the back, they would be trapped in the car.

On 4/5/14 my passenger side automatic sliding car door closed on me while I was putting my daughter in her car seat. When I pushed against it to trigger it to open itself up again, it began closing again on me without any buttons being pressed. I then sat in the driver's seat, without the keys in the ignition, and watched the door open and close all by itself. I pressed the lock button on the driver┐'s side door and within a few seconds the same passenger side slider opened on its own. When I put the keys in the ignition and started the car it stopped and we drove away. When we reached our destination and turned off the car, the door started opening and closing again. After a few minutes, it stopped and didn't happen again for almost a month. On 5/3/14, the same passenger side sliding door began opening and closing on its own while I was getting my children and stroller out of the car. Once I locked the car door and walked away, it stopped. It did not happen again until 5/16/14, when it closed on my 4 year old daughter┐'s right middle finger while she had her hand on the door frame about to climb into the car. The automatic safety feature also malfunctioned and the door completely latched closed on her finger. We immediately got her ice from the establishment we were parked in front of, and drove her to urgent care. She was diagnosed with a possible fracture and given a finger brace. She continues to wear the brace a week later and still has bruising, swelling and limited mobility with the finger. We took the car to the dealer 5/17/14 and after having the car for the entire day, they couldn't replicated the problem and therefore couldn't fix it. We dropped it off again 5/20/14 and they've had it ever since and are unable to find the problem and fix it. This car is unsafe for me and my family and this problem needs to be resolved immediately!

Drivers side sliding door opens randomly by itself after the car is parked. It opens and closes even when the doors have been locked by the key fob or manually. Luckily it hasn't opened while driving yet. Had to disconnect the battery until we could have it checked. Called the local Chrysler dealer and they had never heard of the problem. They were no help at all and seemed to be impositioned by the question. Checking on line, there seems to be others with the same problem.

Sliding passenger door fails to work properly opens and closes at will. Has caught several children with out reopening upon contact. Continue to stall after recall as did before recall fix. Battery caused corrosion to eat away cables. Even when serviced like supposed to. Leather seats ripped within 2 mths of purchase was purchased brand new. Electrically gas mileage fluctuates all the time example 410 on fill up then 2 miles dn road it says 60 miles left etc. Yet Chrysler dealer claims all the time no dx on anything. Just shut completely down today as was turning ended up half in road thank god car behind paying attention and dump truck was coming also paid attention or else daughter and I could have been hurt severely. Never buy a Chrysler that's my response. Then had towed dealer said was relay switch they changed it brought me the vehicle then I went to drive out and it died again so I guess not.

Purchased brand new, never owned 2010 Chrysler Town and country, second day of owning vehicle noticed over sensitive obstruction detection in the driver side rear power sliding door. Have had vehicle for 4 months and problem has gotten worse. Have come out from stores to find the door open because it had not shut properly. It attempts to close then reopens then tries to close and goes through this process about 10 times before having to manually shut door. Researched online and see its a constant problems for others as well. Door also opened on me while pumping gas, and while I was quick enough to remove the gas before hitting, the door did hit the gas cap and shove it into the van causing a dent from the pressure of the door..
