This plaintiff alleges their Dodge Dart Uconnect system began to freeze and then shut off in April 2016, leaving a blank, black screen that didn't work, so the plaintiffs took their car to a dealership for repairs while the Dart was still under warranty. The dealership replaced the Uconnect system on May 14, 2016, but that same day the replacement system began to randomly black out.
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.keep reading article "Lawsuit Says Chrysler's Uconnect Often Freezes and Loses All Functionality"
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.

Chrysler won't face a nationwide class-action lawsuit for their Uconnect woes. At least not yet.
A lawsuit filed in Kansas saught nationwide status but the judge ruled the plaintiffs based their claims on Kansas law which
cannot govern out-of-state transactions. The case will continue for Kansas owners who purchased or leased a Chrysler vehicle with an 8.4-inch Uconnect system on or after 01/23/2013.
The plaintiffs claims are something most Chysler owners are familiar with. The Uconnect system freezes, the screen goes blank, and there's no way to control the climate or view the backup camera. The lawsuit said the problems continue even after multiple replacements of the entire system.keep reading article "Kansas Based Uconnect Lawsuit Won't Get Nationwide Status"
