tire pressure drops weekly. i must check my tire pressure at least every other week or it will drop below 20 psi. i usually run my tires at the maximum recommended tire pressure to reduce the interval at which i must check the tires. replaced tires and changed brands without any difference. right front tire looked low and was checked to be at 26 psi. i hit a pothole on the way home and put a severe dent in the rim. tire went flat approximately 30 seconds later. (speed at 45 mph). replaced front wheel/tire with full size spare. rear tire which had 30 psi went flat and rolled off the rim in a corner within 5 minutes. rear rim also had a dent. it appears to be a corrosion sealing issue. the rims are 17" aluminum with steel center cap mounting brackets and bolted to a steel hub. i will paint the new rims and hubs to prevent the steel to aluminum contact which has been suggested to be the cause of the corrosion by a different dealer. *la

my pacifica has had power memory seats repaired 5 times. my air compressor repaired x2. a "dampener" placed to try and minimize the noise from the a/c. the dash electronic module replaced x1. the wheel plastic covering just came off while driving. my tire pressure sensors have had to be reset x2. the exhaust made a rattling noise that had to be repaired. the right front bumper had to be tighten as excessive wind noise was heard by service dealer. it still makes an audible clicking, knocking type noise on acceleration that they claim to be unable to duplicate. it has a loud pop on sharp right turns. and the a/c still cycle abrubtly and loudly approx every 30-45 seconds. i have had the car since aug 2003 and chrysler refuses to accept responsiblity and allow me another vehicle without obtaining a lawyer. i clearly exceeds the minimum criteria for the lemon law. this vehicle has been a huge inconvenience to my family and i. chrysler states there is nothing to be repaired on my vehicle and will not help me in any way. i love the vehicle when it is problem free wich is rare and i just want them to step up to the plate and stop giving me the run around. it has been repaired way to many times already.*ak

i am only the second owner my 2004 pacifica for three months and have never owned a vehicle with this many problems. i only drove it two weeks when i started hearing a terrible rattling noise around the front right tire. i had my local chrysler dealership look at the car. they said i need to replace the rotors and sway links. we replaced those however the problems was not fixed. i took it back at which now it's pouring oil out from under it. they attempted to fix it however they do not. i took it back a third time they finally fixed the oil leak but the rattling and popping in the front suspension is still there. i have since taken it to an independent mechanic who assisted that the top and bottom motor mounts were completely broken. i replaced those and they seem to think the popping is possibly the control arm or bushings. only two days ago the air pressure sensor in the left front wheel broke and i have an engine light on. the engine light reader stated the car had an emission system leak. i can not believe a car this new could have all these problems. i am very unsatisfied with this automobile. i am in shock. chrysler should make this right. *jb

tire pressure sensor monitor began flashing a message in march, 2008 that tire pressure was low. mechanic checked and tires were fine. had a flat tire (puncture) later that month and when i took car in, mechanic suggested replacing all four tires as they were the original tires on the vehicle and had 65,000 miles on them. when they went to replace the tires, had an additional expense of $300.00 because the tire pressure sensors had seized and could not be removed! three had to be replaced! only one was removable. upon a call to the dealer was told that this sometimes happens because people put air in their tires at unknown locations and they can introduce moisture in the system. i do not put air in my tires - the mechanic does this for me - with very specialized equipment that does not produce moisture. the tire pressure system has been defective from day one - i have had to take to the dealer twice to have it reset because when the temperature drops in the winter (below 10 degrees) the monitors go off telling me i have low tire pressure. *tr

tpm (tire pressure monitor) light keeps coming on, with a corresponding bell ring, every time i use the car and often again while driving. dealer has spent countless hours and many visits attempting to repair same with no satisfactory results. a call to chrysler's complaint line suggested that i inflate the tires with nitrogen! since the air is 78% nitrogen to begin with, i fail to see how that will help. in any event there is a problem here which seems to be a chrysler fault that dealer can't resolve and the problem is ongoing. *tr

we was having problems with our headlights going out on our 2008 town and country van we took it to the dealership to have it looked at and they said it was the headlamp switch so we ordered one and went back up to replace it and they had the wrong switch so they had to order another on and we had to return to put the right headlamp switch in. that did not fix the problem, so we took it back to the dealership and they replaced the tipm module and returned the van we went on a family vacation just for the day and came home that evening when we figured out that they did not fix the problem. so once again we returned to the dealership and they gave us a loaner car if that's what you want to call it and they had it for several days and they replaced a censor that controls the headlights. i just got it back and not sure if they are fixed or not but they said that they are fixed. if it turns out that they are not fixed we will not return to the dealership to fix the headlights again we will find another dealership to take it to. i was not treated to best and i got none of my fuel replaced from the dealership after it took them this many times to fix it and they drove it around we gave them permission but out of the courtesy of the dealership they could of replaced my fuel considering the loaner car they gave me they said that i had to return it with the same amount of gas that i left the lot with. now that doesn't seem fair to me does it you. *tr

tire pressure sensors on chrysler models are prone to valve core corrosion. this condition can result in valve core failure and subsequent, rapid release of tire air pressure. the valve core separates leaving the threaded portion of the core inside the valve stem. this condition has presented twice during attempts to inflate tires to proper pressure and once while driving. the latter incident resulted in the destruction of the tire. this issue is common in chrysler vehicles according to multiple tire repair facilities that i have made inquiries with. *tr

i purchased a 2008 chrysler sebring in august 2007, from darcars brand new, at the time of purchase chrysler was aware of the recall 6months prior and made no attempt to inform me. my car is currently at the dealership being serviced. i took the car in because suddenly the car begin to make a horrible noise, that i described to the customer service representative as a noisy fan belt, that whinnied while driving, but noisiest while in park, odilimg at the stop light. i took the car in and they pretended not to have a clue, and begin to inquire about oil changes and other suggested maintenance, i showed the writer and mechanic my most current maintenance receipt printout along with the previous dates, so they backed away from the indirect accusations that it was possibly my fault. the power steering pump is defected, the pulley froze, and the alternator. the car has only been used to transport my children to and from school and social events, and my transportation to and from work, grocery stores and things of that nature. my mileage is 31,418. they are behaving as if they don't have a clue, but after looking into several recall links, i am appalled that they knowingly sold me a lemon at regular price, with no discount. i have supporting documents. i only received on recall notice, but being the driver and experiencing the problems, there should have been recalls for recall id 07v473000, and recall dated for april 2, 2008 sebring electrical system;wiring recall id 35950. also the recall titled engine and engine cooling;cooling system radiator id#55084. the alternator is an electrical operating piece, it also tie into the recall titled "tire pressure monitor, because one of the consequences include stalling, and battery corrosion, and stopping without notice, which is also caused by a defected alternator. i drive two school age children, two grandchildren, 1month, and 13months old. chrysler put us all in danger knowingly. but still to date acts as if they do not have a clue. *tr

i own a 2008 chrysler town & country touring van which was purchased in sept of 2008. i have 10,000 miles on the van, and had put on 1300 miles during this trip. while traveling through the rolling hills of wyoming, i stopped at a scenic overlook. the 6 passengers got out of the car and the right front tire deflated in a matter of seconds. after inspecting the tire, we noticed the cap was not on the valve stem. in fact the inner workings of the stem were gone. the repairman confirmed our suspicion and replaced the valve stem. we are in possession of the defective valve stem. had we been moving at the time of the incident, there could have been a fatal accident. we are concerned that the remaining valve stems may also have a defect. *tr

2006 chrysler 300c has a manufacturers defect with the tire pressure monitoring system. it goes off repeatedly when driving the vehicle with an audible bell sounding and tire pressures being displayed on the digital panel of the dashboard. problem started 11-12-08 under manufacturers warranty. the chrysler corporation has attempted 20 times to repair the problem with no resolution. i have filed for the lemon law replacement through chrysler with no avail. i have not been contacted by anyone at chrysler despite my repeated attempts at resolving this issue. not only have i filed for the lemon law replacement within chrysler, i have also filed complaints with the bbb of michigan, the ky. attorney general's office which referred me to the nhtsa due to the safety hazards that the cars tire pressure monitoring system displays when the vehicle is in use. constantly while driving the system malfunctions. chrysler has attempted repair for approximately 11 months and have ceased from communicating with me as a customer. i am requesting a formal inquiry by the nhtsa into the chrysler corporation about this issue and their lack of communication to customers to resolve these issues. i have been inconvenienced for 11 months and at this time cardinal chrysler louisville, ky. 502 449-1900 service manager charlie trya, has had my auto attempting repairs for 1, 1/2 months. chrysler has replaced the tire sensors, the dashboard digital cluster, and the receiver for the tpm. under the kentucky and michigan lemon law, my automobile should have already been replaced. i feel that chrysler will not contact me because they refuse to replace the vehicle, and according to the law have failed to properly repair the vehicle in an timely manner. thank you for your assistance in this matter. chrysler is covering up major issues in their automobiles with the tire pressure monitoring system and misleading customers globally. *tr
