Summary of Complaint

THE DEALERSHIP FLASHED THE PCM AS DETAILED IN SERVICE BULLETIN 18-021-09 REV. A. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAT I NOTICED AN INTERMITTENT THROTTLE LAG. WHEN PRESSING THE GAS PEDAL, THE CAR WILL WAIT 1/2 TO 3/4 SECOND, THEN THE ENGINE WILL RESPOND AND THE CAR WILL GO. MERGING INTO HIGHWAY TRAFFIC IS NOW DANGEROUS AS THE CAR WILL NOT ALWAYS RESPOND TO THE PEDAL INPUT. WHEN IT FINALLY DOES RESPOND THE CAR WILL SURGE FORWARD (SINCE I'M PUSHING DOWN MORE ON THE PEDAL TRYING TO GET THE CAR TO MOVE). THIS IS DANGEROUS AS THE REAR TIRES CAN LOSE TRACTION ON WET ROADS. THE DEALERSHIP HOOKED UP A PORTABLE DATA LOGGER AND ROAD TESTED THE VEHICLE. THEY WERE ABLE TO VERIFY THE COMPLAINT. THEY SENT THE RESULTS TO CHRYSLER'S ENGINEERS. THOSE ENGINEERS REVIEWED THE DATA AND SAID, "THE VEHICLE IS OPERATING AS DESIGNED, DELAY IS NORMAL, WE SEE NOTHING WRONG." I HAD THE CAR FOR 22 MONTHS PRIOR TO THIS UPDATE AND NEVER HAD THE PROBLEM BEFORE.

Summary of Complaint

Faulty TCM After purchasing my car it would hard shift in the 3rd and 4th gear And I realize that shortly after purchasing it chant and then one night I was on the freeway and between 2 semi trucks when it's just neutral and then tried shifting into 2nd gear Which almost caused me to wreck in between 2 semi trucks which was not cool and Now my car only shifts into 1st and 2nd gear and when it gets to 3rd it neutrals , It won't go into 3rd or 4th gear . I took it into the dealership to get new software Uploaded on my TCM they said it was fine so I drove it out the parking lot and still doing the sa.e thing won't shift into 3rd gear so I took it to another shop to have it looked at because I didn't want to risk my life driving the car. I'm not gonna take it back to a place that just gotten to tell me that everything was fine when it's clearly not so we put it on a lift inspected it and it shifts from 1st all the way up to 4th no problem and then soon as you put it on the ground and start driving it ,it does the same thing neutrals when it gets the 3rd . Then after looking further into the car the mechanic noticed how small the groundwire was compared to the power wthe power wire and it wasn't getting enough voltage So I'm thinking that also could be a major issue Later on down the road And that might even be the cause of the TCM going bad . It's just crazy to me a car would be OKAY to be sold with the problems it has And there's a lot of people online with the same kinda of problems as mine All I have to say is I'm lucky that I'm alive due to These problems.

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE IS EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTY TAKING THE MANUAL TRANSMISSION OUT OF GEAR WITH THE CLUTCH PEDAL FULLY DEPRESSED. THIS OCCURS ON BOTH COLD AND HOT START UP AS WELL AS WHEN DRIVING OR STOPPING DURING IN TOWN DRIVING. THIS CREATES A DANGEROUS SITUATION IN THAT THE DRIVER COULD INADVERTENTLY ROLL INTO AN INTERSECTION WHERE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY, ANOTHER VEHICLE, PEDESTRIAN OR BUILDING. THE VEHICLE WILL "CREEP" ON FLAT GROUND IF IT IS NOT PLACED IN NEUTRAL AND THE BRAKE IS RELEASED. USING OUR FRIEND GOOGLE I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS ISSUE AND IT APPEARS FROM DISCUSSION ON MULTIPLE FORUMS THAT IT IS A KNOWN ISSUE FOR MY AND OTHER MODEL YEARS. TWO CASE NUMBERS FROM THE MANUFACTURER SEEM TO INDICATE THAT THERE IS A PROCEDURE FOR CORRECTING THIS ISSUE. CASE NUMBERS ARE K38556860 AND S1021000004. THE CASE NUMBERS ARE NOT RECALLS AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN NOTIFIED OF THE ISSUE BY THE MANUFACTURER. I HAVE ATTACHED A FILE WITH THE TWO CASES THAT EXPLAIN AN INSPECTION AND REMEDY PROCEDURE. 11/14/2019 IS NOT THE CORRECT DATE OF THE OCCURRENCE, IT HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. BEST GUESS IS THIS ISSUE STARTED SOMETIME IN 2016, EXACT DATE UNKNOWN, VEHICLE MILEAGE IS ESTIMATED. DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE POSSIBLE DANGEROUS SITUATION I FEEL THIS MUST BE ADDRESSED TO THE MANUFACTURER AND POSSIBLY MADE INTO A RECALL OF ALL VEHICLES AFFECTED TO ACCOMPLISH THE REMEDY AS DESCRIBED IN THE ATTACHED CASES..

Summary of Complaint

THIS CAR IS NOT FREQUENTLY DRIVEN AND SERVES AS A SPORTS CAR ONLY, NOT A COMMUTER, IT ONLY HAS 025,379 MILES ON IT. IT'S A SIX SPEED MANUAL TRANS WITH CLUTCH PEDAL. WHILE DRIVING THE CAR NOTICED WHAT FELT LIKE BRAKES (ALL OF THEM) DRAGGING, INCREASING THE LOAD AGAINST THE CLUTCH AND THROTTLE. NOT EXTREMELY BUT ENOUGH TO NOTICE. THIS SEEMED TO BE GETTING WORSE AND I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT A MALFUNCTION WITH COMPUTER OVERRIDE FEATURES LIKE "HILL-ASSIST" AND "STABILITY CONTROL", BOTH I GENERALLY SWITCH OFF. AFTER ABOUT 20 MINUTES OF DRIVING SLOW SURFACE STREET SPEEDS, STOP & GO, I CAME TO A STOP SIGN AND THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT TO THE FLOOR. THE CAR DID SLOWLY STOP. I WAS "ON ALERT" AND WAS USING THE GEARS TO SLOW ANTICIPATING A POSSIBLE FAILURE. WE WERE GOING TO DINNER AND AFTER ABOUT 4 MORE PEDAL TO FLOOR STOPS, IT WAS PARKED FOR JUST OVER AN HOUR AND REGAINED IT'S BRAKE PEDAL PRESSURE AFTER SITTING. I CAUTIOUSLY DROVE STRAIGHT HOME. THERE WERE NO WARNING LIGHTS ON THE DASH OF ANY TYPE AT ANYTIME. I THINK THIS INDICATES SOME COMPUTER OR OTHER SYSTEM FAILURE CONNECTED WITH THIS. CONDITIONS WERE A 90 PLUS DEGREE DAY WITH THE A/C-ON. THINGS SEEMED HOT UNDER THE HOOD AND AROUND THE MASTER CYLINDER AND RESERVOIR WHEN I FIRST PARKED FOR THAT HOUR. OTHER THAN "NO WARNINGS", THE OTHER SIGNIFICANT FACT IS, NEITHER OF US SMELLED OVERHEATED BRAKE MATERIALS AS YOU TYPICALLY WOULD. THIS I FIND REALLY ODD BECAUSE IF IT WASN'T THE BRAKES DRAGGING ON THE CAR, WHY DID THEY FAIL AND GO TO THE FLOOR "WHILE HOT" ? AS IT IS MY HABIT AT ALL TIMES, I PULLED THE PARKING BRAKE RELEASE A LOT, ASSURING IT WAS OFF THROUGH THIS. IT'S IN WORKING ORDER AND HOLDS THE CAR WHEN I PRESSED IT'S PEDAL DOWN, CLICKING AND LOCKING IT TO DO SO. I KNOW OF OTHERS WHO HAVE HAD WEIRD BRAKE FAILURES WITH OTHER YEAR MODEL CHALLENGERS. PLEASE CHECK ON THIS ! THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

I AM HAVING SAME ISSUES AS EVERYONE ELSE. I RECENTLY STARTED HAVING ISSUES WHERE MY AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION IS STICKING IN GEAR AND DOESN'T SHIFT LIKE IT NEEDS TO.
