We bought this car with 25,000 miles on it. We had taken care of it, maybe not oil changes to the exact mile, but close. One day it started knocking. Sure enough it needed a new engine. Chrysler wanted all receipts and documents of oil changes. They stated there was sludge build up. We did come up with quite a few receipts, but not enough, my husband would change it in our driveway. We went round and round with Chrysler, for god sakes it only had 73,000 miles on it, how could it need a new engine?
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.
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.keep reading article "Lawsuit Says Chrysler 200's Tigershark Engine Burns Through Too Much Oil"
