engine stops unpredictably, resulting in loss of power steering and brakes. there is absolutely no warning that this is about to occur. no "idiot lights" are lit, and the engine does not lurch or hesitate -- it simply quits. this has resulted in some near mishaps when this occurs in heavy traffic. sudden deceleration without warning, and very sluggish handling until the engine can be restarted, represents a significant hazard to myself, my passengers, and other drivers. input-output sensors were replaced 90 days ago. this eliminated the problem until september 16, 2003 when it began to recur. *jb

vin: 1j4fy19p1sp298474 1995. i was notified of a recall on the brake assembly for my 1995 jeep wrangler. on october 8, 2003 i took it to the faricy boys chrysler jeep in colorado springs for repair. on november 21, 2003 my car while warming up in the driveway rolled out of the place across the street and into the neighbors fence. the brake pedal released and was to the floor when my daughter pulled it back into the driveway. we called faricy and let them know the brake pedal failed and that we would be bringing it in. upon our arrival i told the service rep chris rose what had happened. he turned me over to the service manager dan durfee. he explained that after inspection the brake cables had failed and that this was part of the recall. i asked why this was not replaced when they performed the recall. he stated the cables probably appeared in working order when they replaced the brake pedal. again he said it was covered under the recall but he would have to contact the daimlerchrysler rep since there was damage to the vehicle and my neighbors fence. i was lead to believe this was going to be resolved and repaired by faricy. when we returned from vacation mr. durfee had yet to get an answer from daimlerchrysler so he made some calls which resulted in an investigator hired by daimlerchrysler a mr. bernie lattin from ea associates came to my house and inspected my car. he stated that clearly the break was not in working order and that i should have nothing to worry about. dec 23rd chyrsler told me i should go back to the dealer who performed the recall. the dealer told me that was not what they were told by daimlerchrysler and i am left in the middle. on 1/10/04 i paid $428.55 to have the bake assembly repaired since faricy refused to perform or warranty their original work. i also have $2000 damage to my car and $40 in fence repair. *ak *sc *jb

each year the air bag light comes on in my 2002 chrysler town & country since the purchase date. originally, dealer repaired at no charge. dealer last replaced the clockspring in june 2004 at liccardi auto group in green brook, nj for $135.00. i am now in ohio and the light is on again. it appears there is now a recall on 2000 models for the same problem but when i called, the recall dept said it does not apply to my car. i am concerned that it may cause accidental deployment of the air bag. *nm

my 2003 chrysler pt cruiser, gt model, has had problems since i have had it. first, the engine light came on and they replaced a hose, then it came on again, and they said they didn't know what was wrong with, and they would have to wait until it went completely out. it did, at 28,000 miles, it was the turbo charger. secondly, the airbag malfunctioned, they had to replace the seat, took three times to get the right seat. third, now, i would put the car in drive or reverse, and it just sit there, then jerks into gear. sometimes if you give it gas it would just rev up. they said it was the pump in the transmission, they took 4 plus days to replace it. when i picked it up i heard a noise and smell something burning. when i took it out there they didn't hear or smell anything so i was sent on my way. then it started doing the same thing it did when you put it in reverse or drive. i took it in, he said it needed a battery. i put a diehard battery in it, but sears said that was not the problem. then the check the engine light came on, they said it was the evac pump. they fixed that. they claimed that was not covered under the warranty i had when i brought it in two weeks before. now, i hear a grinding when i start the car up, someone said it sounds like the flywheel and they didn't assemble the transmission correctly, and that was probably where the burning smell was coming from. i am taking it in to the shop today for this. *nm

i bought this car on 3/2002. since i bought it i have replaced the starter three times; had a full front end replacement; new engine put in; new transmission; studs broke from the front tire and while the tire was rolling down the road my card was skidding down the road with my 2 month old granddaughter in the car. now the electronic system is completely screwed up and the car is not even running. i have all my paperwork where the repairs were done. i believe that chrysler needs to replace this vehicle "no questions asked" because we have spent over $6,000 fixing this piece of junk. *jb

i was informed by service advisor james quinn at brunswick auto mall in brunswick, ohio (330-273-3300) that the rear control arm(rubber bushings on my 2002 chrysler pt cruiser were worn out and need to be replaced at 44,971 miles. i did a web search and found numerous pt cruiser user forums and found references to chrysler changing the supplier of the bushings sometime after my vehicle was built. chrysler changed the bushings supplier due to very early failure and also upgraded the quality of the bushings. my bushings failed due to having the older style bushings. 45k miles is very early for control arm bushings to wear out. i contacted chrylser warranty at 800-992-1997 to complain and was assigned reference number 14736996. after explaining the situation, the chrylser representative informed me that chrysler would offer no customer good-will assistance with paying for the repairs since i was 1 year and 4 months out of warranty. the chrysler service representative also informed me that i should have bought the chrysler extended warranty in anticipation of unanticipated vehicle repair problems like my bushings. the "unanticipated" early failure of rear control arm bushings on older model pt cruiser bushings is a severe safety threat to consumers who expect quality parts in their vehicles that should normally last at least 100,000 miles. the unanticipated failure of the pt cruiser bushing can easily result in loss of control of the vehicle, accidents, or much worse. thank you for taking the time to read my complaint. best regards. *jb

while driving down i-75, my 1999 concorde began making noise that sounded similar to an object touching a moving fan. when i got to first exit, vehicle died, and at that point oil light flickered. i restarted and before i could get across 1 lane of traffic to the side of the road i thought that from the sound my whole engine would fall out of my vehicle. car died again,as i managed to reach the side of the road. had it towed to dealer and was told that the engine had "thrown a rod", and needed to be replaced. i asked what would cause it and was told "everyday wear and tear", it has only 70,000 miles on it. it will cost $5,000.00 to replace, which i don't have!!! i have spoken to very reliable auto parts dealer about a replacement engine. he told me that the engine has a reputation for being the worst you could have, and that he would not put another 2.7 liter engine back in the car. (didn't make me feel any better!!) now i find this website and i read 64 complaints with the same issue. is there a place or phone number to someone who can help with this problem. as it stands now, i have a car that i can't drive, but still have to pay $7,000 on, and no prospects of being able to afford alternate transportation. *jb

my 2002 jeep liberty had a re call in 2003 for ball joints, i had them replaced in march 2004. on april 2, 2006 at 4:00 p.m. i was traveling east bound on i-465 doing 55-60 mph, when a loud noise was coming from the front of the vehicle and then the jeep was starting to loose control as i tried to slow down and proceed to the side of the interstate. i got out of my vehicle and call roadside assistance, during my wait a gentleman stopped to see if i needed help, and i informed him that i thought i had blown a tire, he looked under my car to notice that my ball joint had broke along with my axle and rim, i had it towed to crossroads lincoln/jeep mercury, where on monday the service department examined the car and came to the conclusion that the ball joint had broke along with the axle and the rim of the tire. i had already contacted my insurance company along with filing a complaint to chrysler, they sent out an "inspector" and after his review came to the conclusion that the ball joints separated "due to impact", there was no impact, i controlled the vehicle to the best of my ability so that there would be no impact, causing injury. it has been 24 days now without my vehicle and i am in a rental vehicle, american family is refusing to pay for the repair of the ball joints and so is chrysler. i do not want to file a law suit against chrysler, but they are leaving me no choice, as this was a costly repair, what can i do???????????*jb

we were returning home to canada from a holiday in california through the redwood forest and several other mountainous/cliff side highways. while driving on the highway in washington state we heard a thump and then the left front tire blew out. the truck was very difficult to steer off the road. when we tried to jack up the truck, to change the tire, we realized it was something far more serious. the left ball joint stem was stuck through the aluminum rim. the control arm was also broken. there was over 200 feet of rubber laid while trying to stop and corkscrews of aluminum from the wheel all over the highway. this all happened with 22,377km driven. the ball joints were then replaced again with the recall in nov/2003. on may 4/06 the ball joint separated again while pulling onto the street from a parking lot. this time we are out of warranty @145,534km. the repairs/towing amounted to approx. $700. the bills have been forwarded to daimler chrysler canada for reimbursement. this is an obvious manufacturing defect this truck has never been driven off road. *jb
