We loved this car till a few months ago. The car engine just stopped while driving it. I was at an intersection and managed to get the car to roll to the side of the road. I started it again and was able to drive home. A few days later it did it twice just after we left home, my husband was driving this time. National Dodge/Chrysler took it in and it cost us $588 to fix. Something with the key FOB. (A key ring was replaced on recall a year ago) Got the car home and a few days later it did it again. they took it back and could find nothing wrong. We drove it to Florida, stayed two weeks, came home and next day it happened again. Dealership took it in and this time kept the car to drive it with a computer on it. They talked with Chrysler and I got a case #. Dealership had said we had 12,000 miles or 1 year warranty on the fix, yet the other day they said they can only do things up to the $50,000 warranty. We have $70,000 on the car. (What about the 12,000 mile warranty on the repair). Service representative told me if we tried to trade it in on something the VIN number would show it had this problem that they didn't fix and I couldn't sell it. So driving it locally only, can't afford another car, thinking about putting lemons on it and parking in front of the dealership. Has anyone else had a similar problem?Report it
I want to correct the previous review to read: they can only repair things for free up to the 50,000 mile warranty. We have 70,000 on the car. ((I feel since the key FOB was what they fixed for $588, and that area had a part on recall that was replaced, this is in the same area of the recall and could be related)). Now we have a car whose trade in value would be $10,000 - $13,000 and all we can do is drive it locally cause it's too unsafe to drive it on a fast highway should the engine just die again. And the dealership service manager told us the VIN number would show that it hasn't been fixed.Report it
