ENGINE

3/15/2018 - INDIANAPOLIS, IN
I PURCHASED MY 2012 CHRYSLER 200 IN 2013. AFTER DRIVING MY 200 FOR A COUPLE YEARS,I NOTICE IN THE WINTERTIME ,THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE WINDSHIELD WAS VERY SLOW TO DEFROST. FAST FORWARD TO 2017 I NOTICE THE PASSENGER SIDE WAS BLOWING COLD AIR,THE DRIVER SIDE WAS SLIGHTLY WARM.AFTER DOING A LITTLE RESEARCH I FOUND THAT THE CHRYSLER HAS PROBLEMS WITH 2012 MODEL HEATER CORES. CHRYSLER NEEDS TO RECALLED THIS MODEL YEAR DUE TO THE FACT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH HEAT TO DEFROST THE WINDSHIELD.

POWER TRAIN

2/14/2018 - SUMMERVILLE, SC
NO HEAT ON PASSENGER SIDE OF VEHICLE, BLOWS COLD AIR. HOWEVER, THERE IS HEAT ON DRIVER'S SIDE. I TOOK IT TO DEALERSHIP BROKE HEATER DOOR/ACTUATOR. I GET TO THE PART THAT NEEDS REPAIR I WAS GIVEN A QUOTE OF $650 TO REMOVE DASHBOARD- LABOR COST., REPAIR/REPLACE COST IS NOT PART OF THE $650. REVIEWS SHOW THERE HAVE BEEN NUMEROUS COMPLAINT WITH THIS SAME PROBLEM FOR 2012 200 CHRYSLER. IT 'S A SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE PASSENGER SIDE WINDSHIELD DOES NOT DEFROST BECAUSE OF COLD AIR BEING BLOWN OUT . . . DOESN'T CLEAR THE WINDSHIELD IN COLD WEATHER NOR DOES IT KEEP WINDSHIELD CLEAR IN RAINY WEATHER. WHY HASN'T A MANDATORY RECALL BEEN ISSUED TO TO MANUFACTURER TO CORRECT/REPLACE PART. CAR HAS APPROXIMATELY 75,000 MILES. BLOWS COLD AIR BOTH WHEN STATIONARY AND WHILE IN MOTION ON ALL, ROAD WAYS, ALL THE TIME NO MATTER IF I AM TURNING, BRAKING OR DRIVING STRAIGHT --- NO HEAT ON PASSENGER SIDE.

BOUGHT THE CAR NEW, ON DAY 2 AT AROUND 80 MIIES, THE FRONT BRAKE WARPED THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT ROTOR ,CAR COULD BARELY STOP.TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD IT WAS A FAULTY ROTOR, DEALER REPLACED AT NO CHARGE, APPROX 3 MONTHS LATER THE SAME THING HAPPENED, THE DEALER REPLACED BOTH FRONT ROTORS AND SAID THAT CHRYSLER HAD A BUNCH OF FAULTY ROTORS. TRIED TO AVOID DRIVING THE CAR ANYWHERE THAT HAD ANY LARGE HILLS OR MOUNTAINS. MOVED TO FLORIDA SHORTLY AFTER THE LAST REPAIR AND THOUGHT THE DEALER HAD ACTUALLY FIXED THE PROBLEM, BUT IN 2016 I WENT BACK TO PA. FOR A VACATION AND THE FIRST TIME I DROVE IN THE MOUNTAINS, I HAD THE SAME BRAKE PROBLEM, I HAD TO AVOID THE MOUNTAINS. GOT HOME, I REPLACED EVERYTHING IN THE FRONT BRAKES BUT THE MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS SYSTEM., THOUGHT THIS TIME IT HAD TO BE FIXED. THEN IN THE FALL OF 2017 WE HAD TO EVACUATE THE STATE OF FLORIDA DUE TO A HURRICANE AND WE WENT TO NORTH CAROLINA TO STAY FOR 5 DAYS. THE FIRST BIG HILL WE ENCOUNTERED ON THE FREEWAY THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENED, THE FRONT OF THE CAR VIBRATED BADLY AND THE BRAKES COULDN'T HOLD THE CAR BACK. STILL NOT WORKING PROPERLY VERY WORRIED ABOUT THE BRAKES AND STILL HAVE TO AVOID MOUNTAINOUS AREAS. WAS QUOTED A PRICE OF APPROX. $750-$800 TO FIX. HAVE ALREADY SPENT $350 TO FIX IT.
