rear hatch would lock - but not be secured. several times, during acceleration, rear hatch would open - exposing occupants to outside - as well as forcing driver to stop vehicle in high speed areas (especially freeway on-ramps). two previous notifications to the dealership were of no help. finally fixed end december 2004. driver's power window failed completely. two trips to dealership (for what was intermittent at time) gave me a silicone grease that i am still wiping off the window every time that i use. finally fixed december 2004. also, experiencing the much mentioned noises from the front end. the power steering noise (dealer says normal) and a crunching / clicking sound that sounds like a bad cv joint or at least a broken suspension piece. unresolved as of picking up from dealer today. chrysler service is not very impressive. i have never dealt with a car company that could explain away so many abnormalities as being normal. *jb

at about 6:00 pm on wednesday, may 31, 2006, our 2005 chrysler pacifica was parked in our driveway. it had been driven to and from my work place (about 44 miles round trip) that day, without any problems. weather was about 72 degrees with sun and low humidity. the car's two front windows and the sunroof were open to let in air. while we were in the house, we heard a noise. upon investigation, we found that the glass portion of the pacifica's rear liftgate had a hole about the size of a soccer ball in it and that the surrounding glass had shattered, but had not yet fallen off the vehicle. there was no one around the vehicle and there was no golf ball, baseball bat, etc on or in the vehicle which would have indicated how the glass had broken. the dealer will be contacted as to repair of the liftgate window. pictures were taken of the damage. *jb

my 2 year old son pushed the button to close the hatch on our 2006 town and country mini-van and my husband was packing the car and was under the hatch and he thought is was going to bounce back up like it has in the past and it did not. the back hatch kept closing down on him he thought it was going to pin him in so he put his arm over his head to try and stop the hatch from pushing down on him and only when he pushed up so hard that is snapped the arm off the back hatch did it stop and bounce back up. also my husbands wrist and arm were swollen from the hatch pushing down on him. that could have been by two year son under there and it could of killed a small child or person. my husband stated he barely was able to push the hatch up. *nm

Cape Elizabeth, ME

10am, driving at a low rate of speed, slowing to turn left, i suddenly lost power steering and had to manual make the turn (very difficult). the van was also hesitating, like it would stall. i regained full power and power steering after 10 seconds +/-. noon, same day, accellerating <35mph, uphill, same problem occurred with the exception that after power steering failure, i completely stalled in the road and had to restart the vehicle. brought to dealership wednesday. they were unable to find the problem (no code) or duplicate the problem. (also an issue with an intermittent problem with the power side door popping off but not power opening). both electrical issues have occured since the five star dealership corrected an electrical problem with my power gatelift popping off but not power opening) i have called chrysler directly about technical service bulletins issued on both items and the advance service information 02-018/nhtsa#10000327 relating to the problem with the power side door and/or liftgate. even with providing this information, the problem cannot be fixed until they get a "code". i have exhausted my progress with chrysler in their assistance with the proper diagnosis of the problem so i could pay to have the correct component replaced. my option is to pay $50 per diagnostic check by the dealer regardless of whether the vehicle "codes" the problem and no assurances as to the number of diagnostic checks it may take to produce the "code", so i filed a complaint with chrysler customer assistance "which is handled in house". when asked what department handles complaints, i was told " chrysler customer assistance". i clarified that is the same department title as to which i was speaking with, it was explained that customer assistance has many departments, which are not given titles, and that they are not allowed to provide names of whom would be handling the complaint, nor would anyone follow up with me. the circles begins! *nm

Monroe, MI

i have 2 issues with my 2002 chrysler voyager. the first is the air bag light flashes on and off. i took it in for service and informed them that i was aware of the recalls on the early models. they said that it was not under recall and that was not the problem. they said it was fixed and on my way home from the dealer it started again. i took it back the next day and they told me that it was what i suspected but it would cost me more money.(now mind you i had told them what i thought the problem was). therefore it is not fixed and i was told that as long as the airbag light was off it would deploy if it is on it will not. the second issue is the rust! there is a huge rust spot on the rear hatch and more bubbles forming. the hood is rusting also! *jb

tl*the contact owns a 2004 chrysler town and country. the vehicle's doors, including the rear hatch, are automatically closing. the side doors closed without warning and the contact is unable to stop them when someone is entering the vehicle. on five attempts, the dealer unsuccessfully diagnosed the failure. one month ago, after engaging the keyless release to open the rear hatch, it hesitated, lowered, and reopened to full capacity. on another occasion, the rear hatch would not close. the dealer notified a technician who advised the contact to close the door manually. after several attempts, the passenger had to remove the arm to close the hatch. during a scheduled appointment to replace the tires and repair the hatch, the dealer replaced the arm without repairing it and stated that it was operating normally. on may 14, 2007, the hatch was stuck in the up position and after turning the vehicle on and off, it closed. on may 15, 2007, after engaging the button to open the hatch, it fully extended and closed on its own without warning. the hatch hit her child in the head causing a minor injury. the dealer and the manufacturer stated that they do not issue recalls and advised her to call nhtsa. the contact will schedule another appointment with the dealer to make the necessary repairs. the engine size was unknown. the current mileage is 54,669 and failure mileage was 52,000.
