i was driving to work on highway 302 when suddenly the speedometer needle moved to zero, the check engine light came on, then the transmission shifted to first gear locking the wheels almost causing a wreck, all of this happened within two to three seconds not much time to slow down. dodge/chrysler wouldn't cover the cost since i bought a program car as is no warranty, but before i purchased it, they did a bumper to bumper check and stated everything checked out, the very next day after i purchased the car, the rear power windows failed, a year later i had a flat and the compact spare they put in the trunk when i bought the car didn't match the bolt pattern, on 12/26/02 the pin in the differential of the transaxle came loose and destroyed the transmission and will cost $2,600.00 to replace. chrysler surely out did themselves with this lemon and luckily for me i avoided two major accidents, and 15 transmission shops stated this is the most common problem with this make. i can't believe you have not made chrysler recall the defective speed sensor and defective transmission which can cause a devastating wreck without warning. scc ****dimsii ivoq entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis****770796

while driving my 2002 chrysler town & country about 15 mph in a construction zone, my full size spare tire fell off of the vehicle and onto the street. it is held under the vehicle by means of a steel cable. the plastic clamp that the cable is attached to broke and the tire fell. i heard a bang and felt a bump and saw my tire through my rear view mirror in the street. my concern is what would have happened if that tire fell on the highway while going 60 mhp? the accident it would have caused behind me from other drivers trying to avoid my dropped tire could have killed someone. are there any reports of these cables/plastic clamps breaking or failing in the past? thank you

dt: the consumer stated vehicle had two separate blow outs on new original equipment tires. the right rear tire exploded without any road hazard or prior problems. the spare tire was located underneath the vehicle and there was some difficulty in retrieving the spare due to its location, ultimately resulting in an injury to the contact's arm by the exhaust. she drove the vehicle on a spare to a truck repair shop. the repair shop could not determine why this problem occurred. about a week later a second blowout occurred while on the highway with the left rear tire. she noted there was a dusty powdery residue in each of the tires after the blowout. the spare was again used until she was able to purchase another tire. the tire is a bridgestone transmission with a tire line size p215/65/r16. *ak updated 1129/05. *jb

i noticed that my car had a flat tire, which was no big deal, until i opened up my trunk and tried to access my spare tire. the wing nut on the pole holding the plastic cap on the cover broke. secondly, the plastic cap is stuck on to the pole, making access to the spare tire impossible. this oversight on the part of chrysler has vexed me to the point where i am considering talking to a lawyer about it. what kind of an idiot engineered the spare tire set up of my car? a blind monkey could have done a better job. now, instead of putting a spare tire on and driving to a meeting, i have to call for a tow, costing me precious money. i'm not a billionaire like the ceo of chrysler, i can't be spending money on tows for problems i could have fixed myself... *tr

while driving down a road at 20mph, the spare tire fell out of my chrysler town and country 2006 van. it became lodged under the vehicle. the vehicle had to be jacked up and the tire was then released. the cable is frayed. further damage was done to pipes that fell with the tire. the car had to be towed to the dealer to be repaired as i felt it would be unsafe to attempt to drive there. i called chrysler to see if there had been a safety recall and was told that this has not been an issue. after researching online, i discovered that it has been and is an issue. i am concerned about mine and others safety regarding these vehicles with spare tires mounted underneath. if i had been driving faster, or on a highway, injuries or fatalities could have resulted. i called chrysler regarding this and was questioned about my driving and whether i hit something, which i assure you i did not. i am concerned that chrysler is not taking this issue seriously. *tr
