Summary of Complaint

My TIPM is failing. Due to this, my vehicle stalls randomly with no repair codes being shown after stalling. Everything from the battery to the catalytic converter has been replaced to no avail. I even almost was killed on the freeway coming home from work one morning because the vehicle stalled after running fine for a couple of weeks. This has been going on for almost a year and I have replaced so many things on this car I basically should have just cut my losses and purchased a new one.

Consumer Location: ALLEN, TX
VIN: 1C3CDZAB8CN****

Summary of Complaint

THIS ISSUE IS A DEFECTIVE HEATER CORE. CASTING AND METAL SHAVINGS CLOG HEATER CORE TO WHERE YOUR CAR CANNOT HEAT THE PASSENGER SIDE OF YOUR CAR. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS DUE TO THE CAR NOT HAVING THE ABILITY TO DEFROST FRONT AND BACK WIND SHIELDS DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER. THE PROBLEM ARISES WITH HOW TO THE HEATER SITS BEHIND THE DASH. IT CAUSES THIS ISSUE TO REPEAT EVEN IF HEATER CORE IS REPLACED. THIS PROBLEM IS VERY DANGEROUS AND IS A $1,000 PLUS REPAIR THAT WILL REPEATEDLY OCCUR NEARLY EVERY YEAR OR SO.

VIN: 1C3CDZAB8CN****

Summary of Complaint

HEAT AND DEFROST ON PASSENGER SIDE ONLY BLOWS COLD AIR. ONLY 1/2 OF WINDSHIELD FROST CLEARS MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO SEE OUT PASSENGER SIDE WINDSHIELD AND WINDOW FOR ONCOMING TRAFFIC, PEDESTRIANS, ETC. WHEN FIRST TURNING ON, PASSENGER SIDE CLICKS FOR 30 -60 SECONDS. THIS APPEARS TO BE A COMMENT ISSUE WITH THIS CAR AND IS A SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERN!

VIN: 1C3CDZAB8CN****

Summary of Complaint

WINDOW DEFROST AND PASSENGER HEAT /AIR. WHILE EITHER IN MOTION OR WHILE DRIVING, NO HEATED AIR EXITS THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE WINDSHIELD DEFROSTER, NOR THE PASSENGER WINDOW DEFROST, LOWER AND CENTER CONSOLE VENTS. HEATED AIR ONLY EXITS THE DRIVER'S SIDE WINDSHIELD AND DRIVER'S SIDE DASH VENTS. PROBLEM PERSISTS THROUGH ALL CABIN AIR MODES, AND CIRCULATIONS. THIS SAFETY ISSUE EFFECTS VISIBILITY AND PASSENGER SAFETY BY FAILING TO DEFROST/DEFOG WINDOWS AND KEEPING CABIN TEMPURATURES NEAR OR BELOW FREEZING DURING COLD WEATHER (BLOWING COLD AIR INTO THE CABIN).

Summary of Complaint

RECALL S61 OCCUPANT RESTRAINT CONTROL MODULE. I WAS NOTIFIED OCTOBER OF 2016 OF THIS RECALL, STATING THE FIX WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN JUNE OF THIS YEAR. MY AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON IN JANUARY. A LOCAL AUTOSHO DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AS THE RECALL. THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP SAID THEY COULDN'T DO ANYTHING UNTIL THE FIX BECAME AVAILABLE IN JUNE, DIDNT OFFER TO HELP GET ME INTO A SAFER VEHICLE. THEY JUST SAID NOTHING COULD BE DONE AT THE TIME. COME JUNE, THE FIX WAS PUSHED TILL AUGUST. I'M IN TOUCH WITH THE DEALERSHIP NOW, AND THEY HAVE SAID THAT PARTS ARE ON HOLD, AND THEY ARE WAITING FOR CHRYSLER TO RELEASE THE PARTS. I HAVE TWO YOUNG CHILDREN IN THE CAR WITH ME AT ALL TIMES. THIS CAR IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE, AND CHRYSLER IS NOT FIXING THE PROBLEM IN A TIMELY MANNER.

Summary of Complaint

MY AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON DECEMBER 16,2014 I REPORTED IT ON DECEMBER 18,2014. I TOOK IT IN TO BE FIXED ON 12/21/2014 BUT MY AIRBAG LIGHT IS STILL ON DUE TO THE FACT THAT HE SAID THE OCCUPANT RESTRAINT CONTROL MODULE NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. I FEEL THIS IS A DEFECT AND SHOULD BE PART OF THE RECALLS. HOW DO I KNOW THAT HE REPROGRAMMED IT IF THE LIGHT IS STILL ON. ALSO MY TRUNK HOLDS WATER WHEN IT RAINS AND THE WATER COMES OUT OF THE LATCH ONCE IT IS HELD UP. I FEEL THAT DODGE SHOULD HOLD UP TO ITS PRODUCT AND REPAIR ALL PROBLEMS. *TR
