ENGINE

12/16/2014 - CLIFTON, NJ
WHILE DRIVING, THE CAR SOUNDS AN AUDIBLE ALERT, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT GOES ON, AND DISPLAYS "SERVICE TRANSMISSION" ON THE CAR'S DASH/DISPLAY. WHEN THIS HAPPENS, THE CAR DROPS INTO NEUTRAL AND I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ANY GEARS. ATTEMPTING TO SHIFT INTO NEUTRAL AND BACK INTO DRIVE DISPLAYS A "GEAR NOT AVAILABLE" MESSAGE ON THE CAR'S DASH/DISPLAY. THE CAR HAD TO BE TOWED TO THE DEALER, OR IF I POWER THE CAR DOWN AND START IT BACK UP, I CAN GET THE GEARS BACK, BUT THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT REMAINS ON AND THE CAR DOES NOT SHIFT PROPERLY AND THE CAR IS SLUGGISH. THIS CAR IS THE 1.4L TURBO WITH A DUAL DRY CLUTCH TRANSMISSION. THIS PROBLEM HAS HAPPENED THREE TIMES NOW WITHIN THE LAST 1.5 MONTHS. THE FIRST TIME, THE DEALER DID A "REFRESH" ON THE COMPUTER AND STATED THAT THE COMPUTER HAD TO "RELEARN" THE TRANSMISSION. THE SECOND TIME (12/09/2014) THE DEALER SAID THE TRANSMISSION CONTROL MODULE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE THIRD TIME OCCURRED TODAY (12/16/2014) AND IT IS AT THE DEALER NOW WAITING ON SOMEONE TO LOOK AT IT. TODAY WHEN THIS HAPPENED, IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO GET MY CAR ACROSS THREE LANES OF TRAFFIC AND ONTO THE SHOULDER OF A MAJOR HIGHWAY IN NEW JERSEY. THIS ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT WHICH WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN SERIOUS INJURY AS IT WOULD HAVE INVOLVED A MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT WITH AN 18-WHEELER SEMI-TRUCK.

POWER TRAIN

12/10/2014 - OAK HARBOR, OH
TO ADD TO A LONG LIST OF ISSUES WITH THIS VEHICLE WE NOW HAVE A VERY SERIOUS ONE THAT CHRYSLER DOES NOT COVER IN THE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY. ON THANKSGIVING WHEN GETTING READY TO LEAVE A STORE MY WIFE PUT THE VEHICLE INTO WHAT SHE THOUGHT WAS 1ST ONLY TO BEGIN GOING INTO REVERSE. THANKFULLY THERE WAS NOTHING BEHIND AT THE TIME. WE DISCOVERED THAT YOU CAN PUT THE VEHICLE INTO REVERSE AT ANY SPEED OR ANYTIME WITHOUT THE USE OF THE SHIFT RELEASE. UPON TAKING THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALER THEY STATED THAT THE SHIFTER NEEDS REPLACED AS THE CABLE BROKE FREE. THEY ALSO DISCOVER THAT THE REVERSE SHIFT SENSOR HAD GONE BAD AS WELL WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSING THE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT TO COME ON AND THE CRUISE CONTROL TO STOP WORKING. THIS IS BUT ANOTHER ISSUE THAT THERE WHERE NO WARNING LIGHTS, BELLS OR WHISTLES YET EVERYTHING IS OK BECAUSE THE COMPUTER SAY'S IT IS. THIS VEHICLE IS A DEATH TRAP, THEY WILL NOT FIX EVEN THOUGH IT IS A KNOWN ISSUE SINCE 2012 WHEN THEY FIRST RELEASE THE VEHICLE. APPARENTLY SOMEONE NEEDS TO DIE FOR IT TO BE A SERIOUS ENOUGH ISSUE.. CHRYSLER NEEDS TO BE MADE TO STEP UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR SHODDY PRODUCTS. OUR HEATER CORE IS LEAKING, TURBO INTERMITTENT, ENGINE SURGES (RPM'S) ETC.

WHEN TRYING TO LIFT UP THE METAL RING ON THE GEAR SHIFT TO PUT THE CAR IN REVERSE, I HEARD A SNAP, AND COULD NOT ENGAGE REVERSE. LUCKILY I WAS BACKING OUT OF A PARKING SPACE THAT WAS ON A SLIGHT INCLINE. THE METAL RING IS NOW LOOSE AND THE CAR WILL NOT GO IN REVERSE.

11/24/2014 - SAN JOSE, CA
THE FIRST TIME MY VEHICLE DIDN'T GO INTO REVERSE WAS WHEN I WAS LEAVING WORK. I ATTEMPTED TO BACK OUT OF MY PARKING SPOT AND THE SHIFT MECHANISM TO ENGAGE THE REVERSE IN MY CAR WOULD NOT COME UP LIKE IT HAS TO FOR REVERSE TO TAKE HOLD. I TRIED TWICE AND TURNED MY CAR OFF. I WAITED ABOUT 5 MINUTES AND TRIED AGAIN AND THE CAR ENGAGED REVERSE LIKE NORMAL. FOR ABOUT TWO WEEKS THE CAR SHIFTED FINE UNTIL ON 11/23/2014 AFTER STARTING MY CAR AND LETTING IT WARM UP, I ATTEMPTED TO PLACE MY CAR IN REVERSE AND HALFWAY THROUGH THE SHIFT INTO REVERSE ON MY MANUAL CAR I HEARD A POP AND MY CAR JERKED. I THEN LET GO OF MY SHIFTER KNOB AND IT RETURNED INTO THE NUETRAL POSITION. THEN I TRIED TO PUT IT IN TO REVERSE ONCE MORE AND THE SHIFTER KNOB WAS LIMP AND RETURNED TO NUETRAL BY ITS SELF. I TURNED MY CAR OFF AND SINCE I AM MECHANICALLY INCLINED I REMOVED THE LEATHER COVER FROM THE SHIFTER KNOB TO SEE MY REVERSE CABLE HAD SNAPPED CLOSE TO THE BASE OF THE HOUSING.
