this is a corrected complaint from odi#759939. we purchesd the van with 38,600 miles. we believed we had a 3,000 mile or 3 month warranty. the driver's side seat heater shorted and caused the seat to catch fire. not a smolder, a real fire with flame and smoke etc. my 4 children were in the vehicle. fortunately my wife was standing near the van and was able to put the fire out with snow. we notified scott morris at morris motors and he said he would check into the situation. we have waited patiently and only called every couple of weeks. he kept telling us chrysler would call us. no-one ever called. today scott said he will do nothing and should have let the van burn up. no kidding, he said that. we called chrysler ourselves. they told us they would do nothing and not to call back and that we could not speak with any supervisors. what if the van burned with my children in the vehicle and we couldn't put the fire out? what if the van burns while parked in my garage and causes a huge catastrophe? we need help and no-one is willing to help us. they are, in fact, rude and sarcastic. all we are asking is for a new seat that is working properly and safely. that is all we want. please help. thank you. nlm

driver side seat heater shorted and caught the driver's seat on fire. our children were in the van. fortunately my wife was present, standing outside the van and used snow to put out the fire. not just a smolder...a very real fire with flame and smoke. the dealer told us he was checking on the situation and chrysler would call us. no-one ever called. the dealer finally, after 3 months told us no-one was going to even check into the problem he told us to let the vehicle burn up next time. we called the manufacturer. they also said they would not do anything at all and not to call again. all we want is a new seat that is not a hazard to catching my van on fire. we were lucky this time. what if my children were injured or killed? what if the van catches fire in my garage? we need help. nlm

2000 chrysler town& country (limited) owed for 2 years 11 months, 57300 miles -i went to my vehicle to run an errand. while sitting in my driveway, i turned on the seat heater to warm it up due to the severe cold. the seat began to smoke and burned through the leather seat. i immediately turned off the seat heater and saw glowing embers around the hole that was created from a high heat source. i turned seat heater back on to confirm the source of the glowing embers. sparks began to shot out of hole in burnt leather seat. my thoughts are that something in the heater caused the smoke and glowing embers. although, this car has high mileage, the leather seats are in excellent condition. i would expect that the seat heater would be reasonably durable. this car has the chrysler basic warranty, but the issue of safety/hazard cannot be denied. if this had been the passengers seat with a child, instead of an adult, the outcome may have been completely different. also, if i had been driving in heavy traffic on the interstate (my route to work is va interstate 66 and is usually very heavily traveled) i might not have been able to get to the side of the road safely. note, during this event, no fuses burned out to my knowledge.
