My 2006 Dodge Charger keep stalling while driving. I was sitting at a light getting to ready to turn and the car stopped in the middle of the turn. Thankful it was a turn signal or I would have been hit. Also the engine light come on and the car just stalls then - you can wait about 5 min. And it will start back up. Upon doing my research I am unsure to why their has not been a recall. I was on the highway and it starts to stall then I hit the gas and it keeps going.

My car will stall when stopped or coming to a stop. Starts right back up. This is a concern for safety for myself and other vehicles on the road. I have seen so many other complaints about this on the internet, I don't understand why it has not been recalled and taken care of.

My vehicle has a problem with the MINIcatalytic converter. There is recalls for other VIN # but my VIN # is not part of the recall since my vehicle was build after March 2006. Even though its the same vehicle problem the recall doesn't cover my vehicle. I will like an investigation regarding this matter.

I was leaving a store and started my car. Everything seemed normal, but the car would not shift out of park. I had to leave the car and came home and found a multitude of information on this problem with this particular model car. I also found out how to take the console apart to get in and shift the car without the shifting lever, so I was able to get it home and drive it to the dealership. The dealership told me that this VIN is not included in the recall for this exact problem for "certain 2005-2007 Dodge Chargers, magnums, and 300S." I had them repair it for $155. The dealership shared with me that they service 4-5 vehicles a week with this identical problem that were not included in the recall for this problem. That is in greensboro nc, which is not a super-large market but is not a tiny market either. I would like for someone to explain to me in detail why my specific car was not included in the recall.

My car was stuck in park.upon reviewing my problems online I realized there is a known recall for this make/model of my car :customer satisfaction notification K39transmission shifter interlock lever. I called the dealership to have the repair and was told my vehicle was not included. Advised to call Chrysler and was told the same thing. My car was repaired by the dealership at my expense for the exact recall work. This is unacceptable. Chrysler need to expand the recall to included all Dodge Chargers from 2005-2007 not "some" models.

My vehicle began shutting off while idle about about a year ago. It started back up immediately and I was able to continue driving. Initially there were no check engine lights that came up. It soon happened again and this time the check engine light came on. I took it to Firestone and they pulled some codes that they said the dealer had to repair. By the time I got to the dealer the lights went off and I shared the other diagnostic with them but they were unable to determine what was really wrong. It started happening again months later and I took it to yet another mechanic. This mechanic 'reset the computer" and made the check engine lights turn off. It stopped for a time but the problem came back. This time (140,000 miles) the engine shut off on the highway! I was slightly tapped on the rear by the driver behind me. Another time a semi truck was behind me and I stalled. Luckily we were in slow moving traffic. Again at high speeds the engine would turn back on but this is very dangerous. I am afraid to drive my baby in this vehicle. There are a ton of similar complaints on Dodge forums with these vehicles. Dodge needs to fix this before someone gets hurt or dies!!!

Luckily the freeway was empty, but from 70mph I went to about 20 mph I had to call a tow truck took it in and couldnt find anything wrong with it. It did it again last month on a country rd, I've been lucky that I haven't been in an accident! it also turns off at stops but will restart immediately. No engine light is on I've paid for 3 diagnostic checks and nothing.

Charger 8-cyl

  • 110,000 miles
Filled vehicle with 10% ethanol 87 octane gasoline at self-service station on September 19, 2014. Drove away and vehicle stalled at first intersection. I put the vehicle in neutral and started it with no further problems until I filled tank again after about 250 miles. (I was driving a 1500 mile trip from one state to another.) every time I refilled the tank, the vehicle would stall within a few hundred feet of filling station. This stalling has continued through yesterday, September 29, 2014, and I am concerned it will happen again when I refill the tank. If the vehicle stalls at the wrong time, someone could be seriously hurt or killed.

2 months ago I was leaving work and got in my car to go home. My car would not shift out of park. I had it towed to a dealer and was charged 1500 to repair!! after learning of all the go recalls, I've come across many people who have experienced the same problem. I also understand that some cars were recalled and some not, for the exact same issue! how is that even possible" I am requesting this issue be investigated and go to be held accountable! some are being told it wasn't recalled due to not being a safety issue??? how is it not a safety issue if you can't move your car? I could have been anywhere in an emergency situation where I had to leave. Furthermore, even if it's not considered a safety issue, how is the consumer to be held liable for an obvious manufacturer defect?" please investigate this matter.

My car was recalled for the cooling fans letting my car overheat. The dealer replaces the fans and the asks if I want him to fix my overheating issue. I thought that was why my cooling fans were the issue. It stopped overheating for a month maybe at most the I had to have a new radiator, T-stat, and water pump. Within a couple weeks on my way to my doctor the temperature gauge dropped to 140 and died. I started it up and it has a quick knocking noise that seem to tick too quickly to be a rod plus the car doesn't die. I turned it off after hearing the knocking and had it towed home. Now my brother is letting me drive his car and mine is a yard ornament.

The shifter stuck in park and we had to take the car to the dealership where the shifter assembly had to be replaced. Upon are arrival the technician stated that there were 3 other Dodge auto's were there for the same reason. Our neighbor has a Chrysler sebring which had to have the same repair just last year. As the Chrysler had a recall on it and we feel that the Dodge should also have a recall. Our car is not 5 years old and according to the dealership should not have had this type of repair at this time.

Gear shift stuck in "park". there was a recall for some Chargers for this problem but not mine. Obviously, the same part is defective on mine as the part in the vehicles involved in the recall.

I have taken my car to the dealership 5 times to have issues fixed. Each time I got the car back, it was worse. I had 13 issues originally with the car. I ended up suing, and got a very small settlement- Dodge refused to cooperate. I still have each and every problem, and do not know what else to do. My car dies while in reverse, the brakes malfunction constantly, the window panel remains broken due to their inept work, the radio cuts off, the dash lights die @ night, etc. I would truly appreciate it if someone could actually help me. I do not know what else to do. I love my car dearly, but something needs to be done. The date I put as date of incident is when this all started.

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger and noticed on the recall stats I get sent on the E-mail that several others have had trouble with their Chargers hesitating or stalling on take off. I have had the hesitation every since I bought the car in March of 2006. I had it into the shop once in midland, Texas where I bought the car right after I bought it and they told me that it was how that particular car did and it was nothing to worry about. Seems like it may be a problem after all. I have right at 30,000 miles on the car now. It has continued to happen almost every time I accelerate. Sometimes it is worse than others.
