The vehicle appears to be stalling while in motion. The steering wheel, brakes, and gas pedal all lock up leaving the driver unable to control the vehicle in any way. This has happened on at least 10 occasions. The local Chrysler dealership attempted to fix the vehicle, but was unable. Corporate was notified and sent out a corporate mechanic who was also unable to fix the vehicle. The vehicle has locked three additional times (since the last attempted repair) and both the dealership (who is now refusing to service the vehicle) and corporate (who have not returned calls or emails) have been notified. After conducting an internet search I see that this is not an isolated issue--it has been reported multiple times to the NHTSA as well as on other websites. This is a dangerous and defective vehicle. Chrysler has been notified of this defect on multiple occasions and is not doing enough to protect the safety of its consumers.

This had happened several times since we bought this from the dealer. I would be driving and have no control over the van, I had to come to a stop and put it in park and then start it up again.very dangerous. My second complaint is a tire went flat less then a year of having the vehicle. I was told by the tire repair mechanic that there was a plug and these are 2008 tires and 2007 rims and that tube where the air goes in was brass and it should not be.he seemed to think they gave us used tire and rims on our vehicle. He said he has seen this where a dealer puts the newer rims and tires on another vechicle to sell it and us unsuspecting customers did not know they had been replaced.

This is a rented vehicle from advantage rent a car phx. Model is 2010 Chrysler Town and country van with AZ plate [xxx] (I did not get the VIN). I was driving on a surface street at approximately 30-35 mph when the van suddenly lost all power. The engine shut down, the instrument panel went completely dead (speedometer dropped to zero and all gauges went dark), the radio went dead, and power steering and braking were non-functional. I did not attempt to restart the vehicle while moving because the shifter positions are unmarked and the gear indicator along with the entire dash panel went dark. I was able to pull the vehicle on coasting power into a parking lot with great difficulty due to the lack of power steering and braking. Once I was safely stopped. I put the gear shift back into park, removed the electronic key fob, reinserted it and restarted the vehicle. The vehicle returned back to working order - the engine started and the all dash panel controls returned to normal operation. I consider this a very serious and potentially life threatening safety problem. If this same thing had happened to me the prior evening when I was driving down a steep winding mountain road at 70 mph at night with no road lighting, the consequences could have been deadly since I would have lost all vehicle lighting, instrumentation, and power controls. Because of the suddenness of the failure, I suspect this was an electronic failure and not a mechanical failure - akin to your computer crashing. However, you computer does not crash while you are going down the road at 70 mph. Please investigate this advantage rent a car at phx rental terminal.

The contact owns a 2010 Chrysler Town and country. While driving at various speeds the alignment needed to be adjusted. The vehicle pulled to the left each time the vehicle was driven. The vehicle was taken to the dealer at least three times for to be repaired and they could not duplicate the problem. The manufacturer was called and a representative also inspected the vehicle and found no problem with the alignment. He stated that was the way the vehicle should be driven. The failure mileage was 16,052.
