Challenger 8-cyl

  • 1,622 miles


I just purchased a 2010 Dodge Challenger srt8, it has 1324 miles on it. Today as I was turning in a road the car engine stalls! I had to put my car in park and restart it. After looking on car forums this seems to be very common with these cars. My question is, why hasn't a recall been issued for this problem by Dodge. The dealership said it had not heard of this problem, I told him to go google it on the internet and he would find that it was a common problem.

My 2010 Dodge Challenger has randomly shut off four times in my past year of ownership. Twice in braking situations coming to a redlight, and twice in parking lots at low speeds, thank god! until the vehicle has come to a stop power steering and brakes are not functioning properly so evasion of other cars, pedestrians, property becomes extremely limited. I am lucky this has not happened at higher speeds on faster roads, however I am aware of other consumers who have had this happen, and are now afraid to drive similar cars.

2 incidents in 2010 srt Challenger of vehicle shutting off for no apparent reason. 1st incident was after stopping at stoplight; oil light flashed briefly then engine shut off. 2nd incident was during a right turn into a shopping center; engine shut off just as pulled off the main road; did not notice any indicator lights as was concerned about vehicles behind me. Both times car was able to be started (keyless pushbutton start) within one or two presses of start button. I have 1760 miles on the car and it has happened twice now. Incidents separated by about 2 months (car purchased 2/2010). Have read on forums about this happening to many other Challengers. Report to NHTSA was recommended to another owner by dealer.

Normal driving, pulling up to a stop sign to make a right hand turn and the engine just stalls while still moving. Power steering goes out and the check engine light came on. Had to restart the car before driving off. After restarting the car, no issues and no warning lights. This has happened two times.
