Chrysler is trying to wiggle out of another active head restraint lawsuit.
The automaker's lawyers point to technicalities in the case that don't hold up in the Arizona Consumer Fraud and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Acts. Another approach they could take would be to actually do something about the restraints that keep randomly smacking people at the base of their skull.…keep reading article "Chrysler Files Motion to Dismiss Another AHR Lawsuit"
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.…keep reading article "Chrysler 200 May Not Pass Inspection As Owners Wait for Replacement Catalytic Converters"
Three fatalities. Five injuries. One massive recall for Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) vehicles.
The automaker says it opened an investigation in April 2015 after 10 crashes were reported, and after months of research, engineers determined the occupant restraint control modules may short-circuit and prevent the frontal airbags-and-seat-belts, seat belt pre-tensioners and side air bags from deploying in a crash.
At the time the recall was announced, FCA didn't have a solution or a date when the it'd begin. There's a full list of the 1.9 million recalled vehicles on CarComplaints.com, and those looking for more info can call FCA at 800-853-1403. Give them recall number S61.keep reading article "Three Fatalities. Five Injuries. One Massive Airbag Recall."
Car dies coming to a stop or putting in gear under low acceleration. I read about a recall of the pcm, then later a wiring pin in the fuse relay box. Apparently defective crap was used in them that's caused this problem. I want the damn thing fixed.
This has literally happened at least 100x since that first time and it is nerve wracking because i have to drive it on eggshells. Something's gotta give because every mechanic has said they can't help me.
My battery light came on and I thought; okay go get a new battery. How silly of me. Because before I even had the chance, the car started losing all of its electrical functions. Radio stopped, lights out, brakes not working, and unable to accelerate. It stopped on me in the middle of the road forcing me to seek help.
