Williamsville, NY

i am extremely dissatisfied with a particular quality of my 2002 sebring. this is the second time i am bringing this to the attention of chrysler and i am demanding further inquiry and resolution be offered on my request. i am very adamant about this request as it has put my children in a very dangerous situation and could cause harm or even death to others. the problem itself is rather simply to understand but can have very dangerous ramifications. the driver side door lock does not have a safety feature preventing the driver door to be locked while the keys are in the ignition or in the vehicle. on every other manufacturer vehicle i've owned there was a feature that prevented this from happening - whether the car was running or not. in this particular situation, my 1 1/2 son was in his car seat as my wife parked our sebring in friends drive way. she accidentally depressed the car lock while closing the door. the car was locked, with the engine running and my child inside the car. it took over a 1/2 hour for me to drive to the location with the spare keys to unlock the car. this was extremely dangerous and nerve racking and could have been worse in extreme heat or winter conditions without proper ventilation. i would very surprised if chrysler has not be notified of this complaint and will be extremely dissatisfied if i don't receive resolution to fix the problem or at the very least a compensation for the situation, frustration, time and money spent. unfortunately to date, chrysler has not done anything other than to guide me to this site. this series of events (if unresolved) will seriously sway my decision of chrysler products in the future. *jb

randomly, the power locks on my newly purchased 2005 chrysler town & country touring edition (3.8l v6) decided to stop working. research online told us to just remove the fuse labeled iod and then put it back. this does stop the problem but it's temporary and in my case it stopped working. after further research it appears the vehicle needs a computer update which i'm expected to pay for. this update, in my case, would require me to lose my car for at least a week. seeing that i am in a high risk pregnancy i don't think it would be a good idea to not have my car. chrysler knows this is a problem cause they made the update to correct it. i think this is a safety issue. i leave my car, hit the lock button, hear the honk telling me it's locked but it's not. someone can easily get into my car. as well, i have a 2 year old. i have the child locks on but if they malfunction as well or she is outside of the car and manages to open the door when they should be locked she could get her fingers stuck in the heavy door. i also live in bear country. it's not completely unusual for bears to manipulate vehicles and get inside when they are left unlocked. we always lock our cars. we always rely on the car's power lock option that you pay extra for to operate properly. i think the update should at least be offered, rapidly at a chrysler service shop free of charge and the same day you make your appointment as it is a safety hazard. *tr
