driving on interstate my dash lights/gauges went crazy (on/off,on/off). finally went back to normal. then in dec. i went out to start it & nothing, tried to jump it & nothing...end up buying new battery & it started right up. this month (may 10 2012) was driving to an appt. & dash lights all came on & then engine quit, pulled off road, turned key to off & back on (car started right up), no more trouble that day. may 13 2012 driving & dash lights would all come on & then go off several times, the engine didn't stop this time. what if i am on interstate again & it does this, injuring someone. i'm not happy with chrysler, there is no recall. mileage is 71, 200. apparently problem seems to be in the steering column, you just shake it or turn key off/on it quits. don't kav the money to fix & mechanic can't get it to this when he has car. *js

Chrysler 300c 2006

Safety incident date:
Feb 01, 2012
Location:
Palm Harbor, FL

the engine will stall after every fill-up. it stalls within 15 seconds after starting it up at the gas station. it will then stall repeatedly at intersections and every time the car comes to a stop. in addition, it has stalled while making right hand turns and misfires and stumbles while at speed. the stalling/misfiring episodes do not occur once 2-3 gallons of gas have been consumed. this situation is extremely dangerous as i have been nearly rear ended as traffic started to pull away from a green light, and also stalled at intersections while making right turns. the chrysler dealer said nothing was wrong since they didn't find any codes or tsb's regarding this problem. i have taken the car to an independent garage and they found a lot of chatter on their mechanic help websites. they think it might be the emission control that sits on top of the gas tank. the top gas in the tank is flooding over to the engine and stalling it out. since chrysler nor anyone else can say what definitively is going on i have cautiously not been filling the tank. this car is dangerous since the next owner may not be aware of this issue.

on numerous occasions i will be driving my car and it will just stall out completely. i have no control over my car. there is no inclination that it is even going to happen. i have almost wrecked my car. at higher speeds my car jerks and stutters and will randomly shut off too. i will be stopping to make a right or left turn and my car will stall out and i have almost wrecked my car with my four children in the car!!!!!!! i see there is a recall on some chrysler pacifica's for this exact problem, but for some reason it is not on mine and it is a major issue!!! i am very concerned with my family's safety when driving my car.

our 2011 chrysler 200 has about 8000 miles and has been stalling, surging idle speeds when stopped, and downshifting hard (jolting) for the last 2000 miles or so. tomorrow is the first time taking it in specifically for this reason after having the dealer annotate these symptoms during the last oil change. it is not save to have a car's idle jump while at a stop light or intersection nor is it safe to have a car stall out when slowing down. furthermore, it's a brand new car so this is completely unacceptable to pay for a defective product. if it does not get fixed i will be contacting my insurance company to let them know what is going on as i am fearful that one of these lunges will result in a crash. *tr

this car was bought new with approx 300 miles brought from a dealer's inventory in kokomo, in to one in northern kentucky, where it was bought 11 may ,2012..it had been on the previous dealer's lot, as part of inventory, i believe since sep,2011. in total it has stalled while stopped at a light 2 separate times..twice it has either quit while slowing or downshifted causing quite a violent throw forward of persons in their seats while at a relatively slow speed coming to a stop...in the old days it would be the jerk you get while popping a clutch to get a car started with a bad battery.. the third time it stalled was backing out of our driveway...we are now approaching 1000 total miles on the car with less than a month of ownership...made first visit to a dealer service 30 may 2012,..pcm code was updated,but could not duplicate problem..have had one jerky downshift since then ..this has been the recurring theme of many of these instances written up on blogs concerning this model over last 2 years.. side note..this car has remote start capability on the key fob..i noticed a recall last year for some vehicles where they noticed the circuit board inside a fob had vibrated loose, and somehow was sending signals to some component in the car which was causing it to stop...ie. no codes associated with a malfunction like that...might be something to look at too. twice also, the hint of an electrical smell has been detected...same smell i experienced when the pcm on my 1993 ford van cooked itself a couple years ago..at first i wrote it off as a new car thing..but combine that with present and past experiences...well, the connection may not be coincidental. *tr
