power locks....locks you in, cannot open the doors. locks you out, cannot open the doors. does not lock all the doors at once, usually leaves passenger side sliding door unlocked. have had system replaced, is now worse than original. also, sets off alarm unnecessarily. ...... - windshield wipers come one intermittently when turning corner, turning on turning signals, or without any justification. very startling, and extremely distracting when driving and the wipers just come on. thank you for your work. *ak

automatic transmission occasionally would not shift into overdrive. often occurred after deceleration from highway speeds. only way to know was to observe engine rpm. sometimes could reset by pulling off to side of road and turning engine off for a few minutes, then re-start. first remanufactured transmission also had problems. second has been okay. wipers on intermittent settings would wipe several times in a row, then not wipe for an extended period. created visibility problems. first repair replaced multifunction switch. this didn't solve problem. second repair replaced wiper motor. noticed that the heater was not working. shop determined the evaporator was not working correctly due to leaks. only way to replace evaporator is to remove instrument panel; very expensive and time consuming.*ak

a one week ago, my left turn signal would not shut off after making a left turn. i have to shut it off manually. within a couple of days it started making a clicking noise before i could get it in to be fixed. tonight i was driving the car, making a left turn and as the steering wheel was returning to the straight position (before the wheels were straight) it locked in a left turn position and would not release. the car kept turning to the left and i had to force the steering wheel to the right. finally after jerking the steering wheel to the right it released and went back to a straight position. something in the turn signal locked it up and would not allow the steering wheel to fully release after making a left turn. after that the right turn signal will not shut off. luckily nobody was in the lane to my left or else i could have hit them. i am now afraid to drive the car until i get it fixed. *nm

pt cruiser 2003 fog lights came on without warning, battery ran dead, cost over $200 to replaces the turn signal stalk. chrysler mechanics were aware of this issue and clearly were enjoying the profits. they refused to cover the repair or participate in any way. i submitted a request for consideration to chrysler, which they rejected because the car has 70,000 miles on it. reference number: 16043282, email case number: 1688956. obviously, the number of miles on the car have nothing to do with the turn signal stalk wearing out! this was obviously a poorly-designed part, judging by the number of other owners who have complained about the same problem. while i appreciated that my warranty was up, problems of this nature should receive active consideration for compensation. this was not going to make or break chrysler, although it has a significant impact on me. i would think you would be interested in having me tell people how impressed i am with your support for such a situation, rather than tell them they should avoid chrysler products because they could easily find themselves in my situation. i plan to make good on my statement to pursue other avenues of satisfaction. was there anything you could do to help? *ak
