  2. UConnect Frozen with Blank Screen

    Uconnect infotainment systems will often boot into a blank screen, freeze while the vehicle is in REVERSE, become unresponsive to the touch, or reboot at random times. The system has grown over the years, both in size and features, but the …

  3. Valve Stem Corrosion

    Fiat-Chrysler made a mistake by using aluminum valve stems in some of their early tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), like the one found in the 2010 Town and Country. The aluminum stem and metal cap are highly susceptible to corrosion…

    Chrysler is being sued for excessive oil consumption in the 2.4L Tigershark engine.

    The plaintiffs allege the engine has a piston ring design defect that allows oil to seep into the combustion chamber.

    Owners report their engines consuming a quart of oil every 1,000 miles even though the manual says the oil should be changed at 4,000 miles and that severe operating conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate as early as 3,500 miles.

    The engine can be found in the 2015 and 2016 Chrysler 200.

    Entertainment options in minivans are really hot right now. They're just a little too hot in the 2014 Town and Country.

    The National Highway Traffic Administration is investigating multiple reports of fires in the charge hubs used for entertainment systems and personal devices. The hubs are located in the trim panels between the 2nd and 3rd row seats.

    The investigation will try to confirm the problem and, if neccessary, order a recall.

    A second lawsuit has been filed concerning Uconnect defects in the 2017-2019 Chrysler 300 and Pacifica.

    Much like the first, the plaintiffs claim the system is nothing but an endless series of reboots and headaches.

    The plaintiffs say the Uconnect 8.4A system is still defective after multiple replacements. And that there's at least 17 technical bulletins about the 4th generation Uconnect system, but none of them seem to actually do anything productive.

    The case, Pistorio, et al., v. FCA US LLC, was filed in Michigan.

    There's something seriously wrong with the 8.4A and 8.4AN Uconnect systems and a lawsuit wants Chrysler to do something about it.

    Namely because the defects limit access to backup cameras, navigation systems, and climate control.

    But also because having the system freeze and endlessly reboot is super annoying. Full stop.

    The plaintiffs tell the familiar tale of bringing in their vehicle multiple times and having software updated and parts replaced. And yet, the problems still exist and dimish the resale value of their cars.

    The case, Gerritsen, et al., v. FCA US, LLC, et al., was filed in California.

    Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) owners are worried that their vehicles may not pass the next state inspection. And for good reason.

    Last month, FCA announced that nearly 900,000 vehicles fail to meet emissions standards and will need new catalytic converters. That’s a lot of parts to come up with all at once, so FCA’s plan is to split the recall into stages with older vehicles getting repaired first. Some owners have filed a lawsuit because they will could fail their next state inspection before parts are available.…

Tell Us What's Wrong With Your Buick

The best way to find out what's wrong with a vehicle is from the people who drive them. Not only do owner complaints help us rank vehicles by reliability, but they're often used to spark class-action lawsuits and warranty extensions. Plus, they're a great way to vent.
