All The Naturally-Aspirated V8 Cars You Can Buy In 2022
Posted On: June 7, 2022
The demise of the V8 is not exaggerated, and it starts with cars. The enemy of the naturally-aspirated V8 is the combination of gas prices, equally powerful but more fuel-efficient twin-turbo six-cylinder powerplants, and electric power. The end is coming, but the good news is that if you're buying a car now, a pure V8 without turbos or a supercharger is better than it has ever been. Horsepower is plentiful, and reliability is generally excellent. If you can afford the gas, and your environmental conscience is clear, there's never been a better time to enjoy eight cylinders powering the rear wheels. The bad news is that there isn't much choice. You can find plenty of trucks or SUVs with naturally aspirated V8s, but these are all the coupes and sedans you can buy in 2022. Lexus LC 500rnIf you want pure power, you'll likely want to look elsewhere than this stunning piece of art on four wheels. If it's all about the driving experience, you'll want to consider the Lexus LC and its pitch-perfect 5.0-liter V8. We love so many things about the LC 500, but that engine will go down as one of the all-time greats. It makes 471 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque, which isn't mind-blowing. However, it's how it delivers that power that melts our hearts. The LC 500 is a grand tourer, and a grand tourer needs a symphony of sound to complete the experience. If there's a better sounding V8 for a grand-touring car, we haven't heard it. It's a super smooth engine and doesn't reach its horsepower peak until 7,100 rpm - meaning you have every reason to wind it out as you travel cross-country. Chevrolet CorvetternThe Corvette now packs its V8 behind the driver, and that 6.2-liter V8 makes 490 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Its power, grip, and handling, firmly lodge the Corvette in the supercar bracket - and for a starting price of just $60,900. However, if bragging amounts of power are important to you, you'll want the most powerful naturally aspirated production V8 yet, and, at this point, likely ever. At the time of writing, you can only reserve a Corvette Z06, and dealerships are charging stupid money to do so. Annoyance aside, we're talking 670 hp without a blower, and the cherry on top is that it's a flat-plane crank V8, so it winds out to 8,400 rpm with a legit, non-hyperbolic classic Formula 1 race car howl. Ford Mustang GTrnIt's been tried, it's been tested, and the Ford Mustang GT still rocks naturally-aspirated V8 power. Starting at $37,545, you'll get a thrilling 450 hp and 420 lb-ft of twist from its 5.0-liter lump in a world-class sports car. Ford's Coyote V8 revs all the way to 7,500 rpm and delivers a 4.3 second 0-60 time. However, the Mustang GT is at its most immersive on the road without the automatic transmission that gets that quick sprint time. You won't keep up with it using the six-speed manual option, but that's not the point. The point is to enjoy driving. Genesis G90rnIf you want an executive sedan with all the bells and whistles and a naturally aspirated V8, neither BMW nor Mercedes can help you, at least not here in the US. The good news is that Genesis supplies a ride with the smoothness of a silk tie salesman, build quality that impresses, and standard features on a $78,700 sedan that you won't find on an equivalent German. The Genesis 5.0-liter V8 isn't built for speed; its 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque are there mainly for making as little fuss as possible getting up to speed, even if you're in a hurry. It makes more than enough power to push across the city to the next meeting with four tall adults, but if you're feeling uncouth, you can always let the occasional hot hatch feel as small as it is. Dodge Challenger R/TrnIf your desire for a naturally aspirated V8 is based on nostalgia, you'll want one of America's last muscle cars. In R/T form, the Challenger comes with a mile-munching 5.7-liter naturally-aspirated V8 producing 375 horsepower for a starting price of $38,680. Lay down some extra cash on an R/T Scat Pack or R/T Scat Pack Widebody, though, and you'll drive away with the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 producing 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. The Challenger is truly in a class of one. It doesn't do much particularly well except deliver an old-school experience in a modern world while looking and sounding great. And we love it for that. Dodge Charger R/TrnIf you want your Hemi V8 with four doors and a little more civility than the Challenger, the Dodge Charger is the ticket. It blends muscle car power with a handsome sedan body, and the R/T trim gives you a 5.7-liter naturally-aspirated Hemi V8 with up to 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque. If you have more than $47,000 to spend, then you can get that 485 hp/475 lb-ft Hemi V8 engine with the Scat Pack and the Scat Pack Widebody versions. Any which way you dice the Charger R/T, it's never been more fun getting the whole family sideways. Lexus RC FrnIt's not surprising that Lexus isn't letting go of the naturally-aspirated V8 as quickly as BMW and Mercedes. The Lexus 5.0 V8 still deserves to be around. Its power ratings, at 472 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque in the RC F, is close to the LC 500's, but the RC F isn't designed as a cross country tourer. Instead, it's a fierce yet precise sports coupe that packs a ton of character and style into a dying segment. A BMW M4 Competition is faster, but the RC F is just a different kind of fun, and it's a lot of car for well under $70,000. Chevrolet Camaro LT1 and SSrnLike the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet's pony car has engines that aren't a V8, including a surprisingly quick and fun four-cylinder turbo lump. If you want that classic Camaro experience, though, it's all about the 6.2-liter V8 making 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. You can also get a manual transmission to keep things retro but with modern grip and handling chops. Like the Mustang, the Camaro is a world-class sports car, and LT1 and SS trims add that big V8 soundtrack and boot-full of torque. The LT1 starts at $34,000 with a stick shift, and the SS models start at $37,500. Lexus IS 500rnLexus hasn't offered a V8-powered IS model since the IS F, but, as of this year, you can get a four-door Lexus with its superlative-inducing 5.0-liter V8. The IS 500 is in the same vein as the Dodge Charger R/T models but exudes more style and sophistication. That puts the Lexus IS 500 in the same market as cars like the Acura TLX Type S, Audi S4, BMW M340i, and Mercedes-AMG C43 - none of which sport a naturally aspirated V8 or can deliver a soundtrack to match it. The IS 500 makes 472 hp and 395 lb-ft, shooting the sedan to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. Chrysler 300rnIf you like listening to vinyl discs rather than a streaming service, reading a paper book rather than reading on a Kindle, making your coffee in pots rather than with pods, then you'll be happy to know that Chrysler is still making the indefatigable 300 for now. It's showing its age; it drinks gas like it's still cheap, but its swagger is still effortless, and you can option a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine with 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. It won't blow many other cars off the road, but it makes the Chrysler 300 feel effortless and swanky to drive. Don't buy it because it looks like a Phantom; buy it because it's a Chrysler 300 with eight cylinders under the hood.

Never have I had as many issues with a vehicle as I have had with my Chrysler 200. As I sit here stranded on the side of the road I want to warn consumers. You get what you pay for. There is a reason why Chryslers are priced lower than Toyotas, Fords, etc... The savings are not worth being stranded 6 times a year. This car is 3 years old and has already had brake failures, starter failures, transmission issues, air bag sensor failures, etc. If you buy a Chrysler you just have to accept that the car will only last the length of the warranty and then it will be time to buy another car.

Leased a Chrysler 300S AWD in Sept. 2017 for 39 month/49000. The sales rep. suggested I purchase an extended warranty to cover the vehicle after the manufacturer (36 month/36000) warranty expired so I did MOPAR maximum care for $381. Mid-summer 2020 I noticed my door panels were warping and rising up. Almost like the glue holding the top edge had failed, this happened to both the front passenger and rear passenger side doors. I didnt think too much about it because the vehicle was being turned in in a few months and Id just have it taken care of then. I returned the vehicle a week early to have this addressed. A few days later my sales rep called and told me this is a cosmetic problem and is not covered under my extended warranty. I was furious! This isnt as much cosmetic as its a defective material/design...I started looking online and guess what??? 1000s of customers are, or have had the same problem. FCA-US has been selling 3 models of vehicles with this design flaw since 2015. I called MOPAR to ask about coverage, a RUDE individual at MOPAR, accused me of doing this. He said I have friends that own the same vehicle and this hasnt happened to their cars and hes never heard of this problem.After getting UPSET with my sales rep. for selling me a warranty that doesnt cover the vehicle like he said, I got a call from the dealerships Service Manager. He went to the lot and inspected the vehicle and told me the leasing company wont even notice dont worry about it. Well, they did notice and now US bank is charging me almost $800 to fix this door panel. Im also going to report US BANK for price gouging... an issue with the other door has a chip out of a plastic trim piece (OEM part cost $73) and they say it costs $965 for a markup roughly of 864%. WOW!My overall experience= POOR from all. NOT buying/leasing a Chrysler (or any FCA) cars again; This was my 4th and last purchase from LaFontaine Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM in Fenton, Michigan; I will never use US BANK for any of my financial needs. After doing more research Ive found a Class action lawsuit filed Sept 10, 2020 against FCA-US for this, over 30 pages of people with the same problem.

Our 2016 Chrysler 200 was giving problems. We made an appointment and was told to bring it in on Thursday. When we brought it in we were told the car would be looked at later in the day and be ready by Friday. When we picked up the car it was doing the same thing. We made another appointment with the service department and was told to bring the car back again on Thursday. When I called on Friday a rep told me that the car has not been looked at even though they had the car one full day. Then while on the phone with her my fiancé got a call saying the car needed a tune up and it was $950. Which was funny because the lady still on the phone said the car wasn’t looked at. No receipt stating what they fixed the first time and couldn’t get a receipt until I paid $200 for a diagnostic fee. Youre better off buying the parts which are way cheaper and taking it to your local mechanic to fix. These guys are rude and unprofessional. Especially the service manager.

Customer care got back to me staying what the dealership said and that they could not help me. Hows that for warranty service. NOT. John **

I purchased a 2011 Ram 1500 with a 5.7 Hemi engine new. I have had no problems with this vehicle until 2 weeks ago. The engine light came on and there was some engine noise. I took the vehicle to a local mechanic and then to the dealership. The engine has a problem with powered valves that come apart and ruins the engine. The dealership stated that this happens in a small percentage of these engines and I would need a new engine at a cost of $8,200! This engine had 125,000 miles on it and is no longer under warranty.

Over a period of several years under warranty, Chrysler has been unable to localize and correct intermittent transmission lockups that render my 2016 Chrysler 300 platinum temporarily useless.

I recently had a problem with the oil filter housing. It needed replacing. I was made aware the Chrysler knows about the problem and is now changed that part due to its serious flaw but they have not made a recall.

I have had nothing but issues with my 2013 Chrysler 200 since I bought it brand new off the lot. Started having issues with the brakes within the first month. Took it to the dealer multiple times for inspection. Was always told nothing going on. Just clean them. Turns out the brake pads from the factory were defective. I also kept having issue with a tire deflating frequently. Took it in multiple times to be looked at and was told nothing is wrong. After having the tire replaced it turns out the wheel from the factory was also defective and wasnt letting the tire get a proper seal.I have had two sets of the active assist headrests malfunctioning. First time the one headset didnt deploy in an accident. The second time a headset deployed for absolutely no reason and injured my wife. FCA fixed the headrests and then told me since I didnt take legal action they would be more than happy to help with any issue the car had in the future. I was stupid for believing that. I have had 2 sets of faulty struts. First set from factory was defective and second set gave out within 10k miles along with the mounts. So 3 sets of struts and 2 sets of mounts within 60k miles. Car only has 63k miles total.Had to replace the Throttle body within 30k miles because the sensor went out. Normally you could just replace the sensor at around $60 but FCA encapsulated the sensor inside the TBI so that the whole mechanism has to be replaced which cost over $500 because at the time you could only get the part through the dealer and not on the open market.Recently, after having an issue with the recent strut replacement. I took the car back to have the dealer look over the struts because they were making noise to just double check they were defective or installed improperly. Dealer drove the car around the lot for 1 min called it good, never put the car on the lift and never did a visual or physical inspection. Then turned around and told my FCA Case Manager a whole different story. Case Manager chose to believe the liars over the customer. Issues escalated to the Head of Case Management. The guy I dealt with was very unprofessional and even did some illegal things.1st off if a call is going to be recorded the company has to disclose it before the conversation is started. That why you always get the automated message call will be recorded for quality assurance and training. They are required by law to do so. Well the gentleman never disclosed that the call was being recorded until the end of the conversation. Then the gentleman threatened to file a Defamation Lawsuit against me if I used his name or other employees name in my review of my personal experience with him and FCA.FCAs solution was to have a low level customer service employee call and apologize for what upper management did. What kind of half hazard way of dealing with such a serious situation. Told them I wanted to talk to the Gentlemans superior not an empty apology from a CS Rep. I got one call from the guys superior and that was it. Though she documented that she called 3 times. Well my phone log on my phone shows one call on 8/13 and that is it. Checked with the phone company and they had the same info I did. So the lady falsified information in my record stating she contacted multiple times. Another rep documented that I replaced my own struts instead of the dealership so they were trying to nullify the warranty on my struts.

DO NOT BUY A JEEP. My husband and I purchased a brand new, 2018 Jeep Compas
DO NOT BUY A JEEP. My husband and I purchased a brand new, 2018 Jeep Compass back in November of 2018. It is now October of 2019 and we havent seen our vehicle in four months. It has been in the shop since July, awaiting a new instrument cluster. The dealership we purchased through, AutoNation Jeep Broadway here in Denver, Colorado, has contacted us about once a month to give us new ETAs on the part, but apparently they have all been made up because Chrysler has told us that there isnt a part available in the United States. We have reached out to Chrysler for a buy back, because obviously we dont want to have an unreliable vehicle OR deal with deceitful dealerships, but they refuse to work with us whatsoever. The most they are willing to do is help us trade our current Jeep in for a new one at their dealership, which is going to leave us with negative equity and a hit on our credit. This would obviously be a horrible resolution for us, especially because this is Jeep/Chryslers fault. I had also purchased a brand new, 2016 Jeep a couple of years ago and the transmission went out in a year in that one. I thought it was just a fluke and that they deserved another chance, but I know differently now. Save yourself the stress and frustration of dealing with such a poorly run company. They truly dont care about their customers after their sales have been made.

I have a 2006 Dodge 2500 Ram. I was driving to the store when I smelled smoke coming from under my seat and the cab filled up with smoke. I pulled over and got my two grandkids out of the truck and flagged someone down a man throw water on it and got the fire out. Chrysler sent out a recall person to check it out and I received a letter stating their investigation concluded it wasnt their fault. I tried to call and find out how they came up with the reason an original part would catch on fire but got no call back from them. I am not happy that this is how they conduct their business. Very scary. Me and my grandkids could have burned up in my truck.

I have been a loyal customer. I have purchased a new 2008 Ram, 2008 Durango, and 2013 Ram. I bought the Durango for the lifetime powertrain warranty and also purchased the wrap around warranty. It is currently sitting in the service center with the heads off since July when the Chrysler adjuster shows up and denied the claim, saying that the warranty was canceled because it wasnt inspected 5 years ago, which is bs because it was in the service center at the exact time it was due. The receipts say inspection on them 3 times. They say the people who worked there at that time are gone, so there is nothing they can do about it! Have talked to everyone up and down the chain. You never get the same person, and they all point somewhere else and dont know who I talked to before. I am so disappointed. The 5 year inspection is due again now. They want me to take it and get it repaired. If I do that then it will for sure be canceled. Chrysler is no longer trustworthy in my book.

Chrysler is refusing to fix my vehicle that is well within warranty.

They do not believe that I changed the oil within the 6 month duration recommended in the owners manual. I had it changed at the dealer every 4000 miles so they have record of that, but I changed it twice on my own to meet the 6 month requirement. I buy oil and filters for my airplane, boat and cars in bulk and so I dont have receipts of those supplies on the same date that I actually change the oil. Chrysler therefore says they wont honor the warranty because they dont honor my word. Typical Chrysler, not my first bad experience with them.I filed a complaint through Chrysler customer service about a week ago. I have also given complaints in writing to the dealership this week. They continue to refuse to fix my 2016 Dodge Challenger. It is in their shop taken apart and not drivable. If I ask them to put it back together so I can drive it away (unfixed) then they will charge me thousands just to do that and for the loaner car they gave me which will be $40/day x 23 days now. Theyve had my car since 11/06/18. So theyve spent 26 days taking pictures and getting my maintenance records and today flat out told me they wont cover it and I have to pay to put in a new engine. They said the engine costs $19k alone.

Jeep is garbage. Do not waste your money. The service depts at Tate and Criswell, Chrysler, and Chrysler area managers dont give a crap that you are in a dangerous vehicle that does not accelerate 100% of the time when you step on the gas or that it accelerates on its own when you take your foot off the gas!!! Not to mention it stalls at random times. No its not due to low oil which this jeep is known to do! It shuts off while people are driving on the highway!!!! Really??? Jeep needs to recall this vehicle!!!! They cant duplicate my concerns in their 20-30 minute test drive so they say nothing is wrong and I am stuck with a dangerous vehicle! No codes can tell them whats wrong but that is not surprising because my electronic system is not working properly and they cant fix that either. No code was thrown but they had to rebuild a 2 week old jeep engine!!! Stay away!!!! Your life will depend on it!!!!! My case is not unique! They know about this. Others experience the same issues and are stuck driving unsafe Jeeps!!!​ 1 year am in a scary vehicle. At 6 months I am told to trade in Jeep! Really?! Thats what I get? I was on the phone with the Tate svc dept the other day when my Jeep accelerated on its own. I screamed because I almost lost control of my Jeep and that is not proof enough to believe the Jeep has a problem?! Its been in the shop a good 1 1/2 - 2 months in year for the same issues!? Come on!!! The Chrysler area manager told me in December 2018 they will replace my car or give me my money back if they cant fix the car. Loophole!!! If they cant duplicate it, they cant fix it!!! Wth!!! He also told me he didnt want me in the Jeep in December because it was unsafe that it did not accelerate 100% of the times. I reminded him of this (Conrad **) a few months ago. He asked me if I had it recorded and now he denies it!!

Bought a 2013 200s in December of 2012. From the beginning every time I went in reverse it sounded as if my brakes were going to grind and fall out of the car as well as squeal. We kept bringing it in and asking if it could be fixed and we were told and it was documented that this was a problem Chrysler knew about and were working on but had no resolve as yet. I now have the car pretty much eight years and its still the same problem with no help. Try this week with all of the pertinent information to get customer service to give me a hand. After three people and over 45 minutes of my time I was told that if the problem were going to get fixed that I was going to pay for it out of pocket! Even though I pointed out that we had been complaining about this and had documented proof since day one of which no one helped us with. We have been loyal Chrysler buyers for well over 30 years and have purchased well over seven cars. We even have a 2015 200s and when we asked if those brakes could be put into my car we were told no. And they still think theyre in the right not fixing a car that has had the same problem for eight years. Not only will we never buy a Chrysler product we will do whatever we can to dissuade others from purchasing it.

I purchased a 2015 FIAT 500e a couple of years ago. I am now the third owne
I purchased a 2015 FIAT 500e a couple of years ago. I am now the third owner of the vehicle, and ever since I purchased the vehicle I have been having multiple problems with it. First, the 12V battery went out, so I purchased a new battery. Secondly while making a right-hand turn all the lights suddenly came on, the ABS light, the RBS light, the ECS light, and then a Red Turtle would appear and the car would slow down and stop.I towed the car to the dealership for repairs @ Larry H Miller Chrysler Dodge Fiat on Havana in Colorado. They did an ECU scan on the car and said that the HV battery under the car is bad, and wouldnt take a charge, which will need to be replaced. I doubted the notion because the battery charges for me every day and the battery was at 90% when I brought the vehicle in for service, but since the car was under warranty for the HV battery the dealership was able to complete the replacement at no charge, and the only service charge was for scanning the computer.After changing out the HV batteries the lights were still present and they said that it was from the vehicle speed sensor and I needed to get both the rear speed sensors replaced. I doubted this notion as well because before I brought the vehicle in for service I changed out all four-speed sensors, but their explanation was aftermarket speed sensors are not good and they can fail out of the box. I decide to take the car home and change out the speed sensors myself if that was the case. I changed it before so I can do it again if it was actually bad. I didnt get but halfway home and the Red Turtle came back and the car stopped. I couldnt start the vehicle or do anything at this point but at least I was able to place the car in neutral and push it out of traffic.I called the dealership and told them what had happened and they said I needed to get it towed back in so they can replace the speed sensors because that was probably the problem causing the vehicle to stop. I paid out of pocket and got the vehicle towed back in for service again. After they changed out the speed sensors the problem still remained no change and no fix, back to square one. The car has now been at the dealership for a month now, and still no solution.The next option was to try and change out the ABS module to see if that was causing the issue. I agreed to the repair, and after the replacement of the ABS module the lights all went away according to the service writer, but now the car cannot be driven above 50 miles otherwise the Red Turtle comes on and the car slows to a stop. They towed the car back to the shop and did a re-scan on the ECU module again. This time it shows up as the power inverter module, which is the reason the car cannot go above 50 miles an hour. I was quoted $6000 dollars if I wanted this part replaced and for the repair.Keep in mind I am still paying for the purchase of the vehicle and now $6000 for repair on top of that to get this vehicle running and the part replaced, I cant afford that! So I went online and did some research myself and searched if there were any recalls on the vehicle pertaining to this issue in the past. Unfortunately, there were back in 2016 the vehicle had a power inverter module recall on the vehicle which was taken care of by the previous owner and replaced.So I decided to contact Chrysler Fiat Customer Service to see if they can help, either reduce the cost for the repair or help with anything basically so I can get the car back to use again. I was given a case #** and was assigned to a Case Manager named Jerry. Jerry was very hard to get a hold of and not very helpful at all to start with. The tone and the attitude coming from Jerry while speaking with him was basically this is not our problem but yours. After speaking with Jerry for a while and letting him know my frustration, he basically said did everything in his power to NOT HELP and in the end said the inverter is out of warranty and I cant help you. What???? This is how you treat customers?After giving him every detail I could about whats going on and that this vehicle is now a paperweight since I cant drive it and still paying for it, he said he will call the Dealership where the car is being serviced and see if he can do something, and he did mention several times that most likely itll be a waste of time because theres nothing he can do. Really!!!...again...WOW!!!! Great customer service.Three weeks has gone by and still no word from Jerry. I tried calling several times for an update, but keep getting pushed to a voicemail. Even the Service writer Chris ** in the service department has tried multiple times to get a hold of him or another Case Manager and nothing. I finally received an email today from Jerry, stating he would like a callback to discuss the Fiat 500e being serviced. I spoke with Jerry and basically gave me the same story as before I talked to my manager and theres nothing we can do to help you. WOW!! I am really shocked. Way to stand behind your product!!! No reason as to why the only thing he can say was we cant help you!Well, with that being said, I guess there is no more for me to say except I am no longer purchasing anything from Chrysler, Fiat or Dodge because of the poor customer service and satisfaction provided or should I say not provided. The minimal support they can give is at least knock down the price for the repair so I can afford it, but all I get is sorry there is nothing I can do to help you!It has now been 2 months to the day that the car is in service. I texted Chris ** the service writer and told him the situation and he basically agreed with me on the poor customer service I was provided by Chrysler Customer Service and with Jerry. I know there are other vehicles in service at the same dealership for the same reason, and Im sure Chrysler does not want to assist for whatever reason that isnt helping us customers. My understanding is, and with any dealership if there are several vehicles being serviced for the same exact problem doesnt that raise a Red Flag to say we need another recall or we need to get an Engineer involved to figure out the problem? He wouldnt even give Chris a reason or an explanation on why they couldnt help. I proceeded to tell Chris I will pick up the vehicle tomorrow and try somehow to get it repaired somewhere else for lesser the cost or get rid of the vehicle all together probably the ladder most likely.Chris ** the service writer has been on top of his game the whole time...he has been keeping me updated as the vehicle is being repaired and also trying everything he can to assist with the repair of the vehicle, and definitely awesome service on his end. I just wish he didnt have to work for a company that doesnt give two cents about their customers. Again....never will I purchase another vehicle that has any affiliation with Chrysler.

Just after warranty is over, transmission died. We had a family trip to Montreal and there was issue with transmission. Started with whining noise and car jerked every gear shift. On the highway stuck at 80km/hr. Engine RPM hit 4-5000. I got out and called CAA. I had to tow my van from Montreal to Toronto. Now I have to pay 4000+ dollar for transmission. Chrysler says out of warranty, we dont care. Dealer, yeah dont give a damn. Never buy Chrysler again.

From the very first day we drove it off the dealers lot, then back seconds
From the very first day we drove it off the dealers lot, then back seconds later all we did was make a U turn back to the dealer with a transmission problem. The vehicle was in D for Drive however the transmission was like still stuck in 1st gear. Dealer said sorry you will have to make appointment. We said what? Since then 5 recalls over 100 TSBs and numerous other problems. And to top it all off all these defects still exist. You may be asking why live with a lemon. Well we did everything by the book, even contacted lemon attorneys, and all said same thing. Chrysler is the worse to deal with. We purchased a new 2010 Chrysler Town and country Touring plus v6 and traded in 2 vehicles because it was the economically thing to do and we would be saving money, well that also backfired thousands of hours and hundreds of dollars of my own time fixing a lemon. Thank God I went to school to be a ASE technician however I was not able to finish still I at least had the knowledge that one day it would help me and it did. From transmission gear shifting problems to head gaskets and intake gaskets to oil consumption to electrical problems. Also I will mention a very bad design where the exhaust pipe is so close to the cooling system fittings they rupture many design flaws simply put a LEMON. Just for those saying well I would have never dealt with that. We had no choice at the time in a chapter 13 so the rules are very strict. You cannot have any debt. I hope I helped you not choose Chrysler.

I was one of the people affected by the recall V54 Engine Fan needing to be replaced. My check engine light came on July 3rd, meaning I couldnt take my car into an authorized dealer to have it checked until July 8th. I didnt know this was a recalled part at the time, but heard unsettling engine noise in the dead heat of summer, so did not want to wait. They quoted me $700 to get the engine fan replaced. My Jeep had 33K miles on it, so I had a hunch something was off and looked online. Sure enough, it seemed I was part of the recall. So I took my car into the dealer, where it sat for days and I bummed rides, until finally they got it fixed. No check engine issue. In trying to get reimbursed the diagnostic check for the faulty part I was denied because I took it into a non-authorized dealer. So I guess I am just out $200 because of faulty engineering. Tsk Tsk, Chrysler Corporation. Making people pay for your mistakes is bad news.

My husband and I (young newly married couple... just starting out) leased a 2016 Jeep Compass, we returned the vehicle in February. We called Chrysler previous to the return of the vehicle to get the amount for full term. They told us on 3 separate occasions the same amount. We paid that amount and miraculously when we returned the vehicle we still owed 2 payments?This is the tip of the incompetence level of this company. This story gets worse. We receive the final bill and get charged an additional $600 for glass damage that didn’t exist. By the end we’re almost down $2000 and yesterday received another bill for a vehicle we don’t even own? NEVER do business with the company EVER. We got the runaround from every person we talked to and hit a wall every time we tried to find a solution. This company’s motto should be “Not for the working class- when things get tough we’ll kick you while you’re down.”

First, this is the first and last Chrysler product I will ever own. After 72k miles of relatively trouble free driving I had a shifter bushing fail only to find out it is a recall part. Chrysler wont have the part until September (hopefully), but in the meantime they found an aftermarket part. Heres the kicker, Chrysler expects customers to pay out of pocket and file for reimbursement when the recall part comes out -- which could be never based on Chryslers history. I was told I could rent a car, at my expense of course. So, I have to pay for a repair, and then go back again to have the manufacturer part put on at a later date. All on my own dime and time. I hate Chrysler and this car so much it gives me headache. I tried to do my part by buying American. Never again. Chrysler can eat a big fat one.

I leased a 2019 Jeep Cherokee. The car has failed to start 5 times now and had to be towed. Each time I get a different explanation from First Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership. After the 4th time, I submitted my paperwork for the lemon law. It was denied because they claim the car is fixed. Last week the car failed to start for the 5th time. After 6 days at First, I was told they tested the battery and it failed. They replaced the battery now. The car has been in the shop for a total of 35 days since delivery. I’ve asked to have the lease broken because I shouldn’t be paying for a brand new car that continues to break down. I’m afraid to take the car out of town and getting stranded. Chrysler is not doing much but apologizing. How does that help me? I will never buy a Chrysler product again. Beware. They do not stand behind their cars.

It has been a good vehicle. Im able to sit all of my kids it. It gets great gas mileage and it rides very smoothly. The car has not had any engine or mechanical issues. Has great storage capabilities for family vacations too. We have a big family and we needed a vehicle that was roomy enough inside to accommodate all of us comfortably. I really love this van! I enjoy the automatic door opener. I like the fact that the doors open at the push of a button. But it would be beneficial if there was a mini TV inside for the kids to watch. Also, the speakers are not very good in the car.

I like the Chrysler model and my vehicle is a 2010. The main feature which led me to choose this vehicle was the stow and go rear seats. Sometimes I would need to move some things that required additional space. Other times I would require the 7 seats which were quite comfortable, and never heard any complaints about comfort. The features I would include though would be the rear camera for backing up, and the ability to connect the cell phone to the vehicle radio. Those features have been added to later model vehicles. I do not think the computer, or as some call it the brain box was optimized in the earlier years. I also have experienced some problems with the computer, having multiple errors which seem to reoccur. Other than that, just normal maintenance which I have performed regularly or as needed. And my overall experience has been quite good.

Hi, just want to give everyone a heads up on the all new Chrysler 300c 2017
Hi, just want to give everyone a heads up on the all new Chrysler 300c 2017 was the model I recently made purchase. The vehicle is very stylish providing great rooming and excellent comfort and effortless performance as well. I must admit Im a very big fan of the Chrysler 300. This is my 3rd one of the 300, I previously own 2006 Chrysler 300c and 2013 Chrysler 300c. Pricewise with what the car offers you just cant beat it, as I use to think. Just yesterday while commuting home from work my sunroof just exploded with shattering glass everywhere.Luckily I was wearing a ball cap that kept me from having glass/glass fragments from getting into my eyes and I was able to remain in control of my vehicle. I must admit it was a very scary event but Im perfectly fine but lets look at it from a different perspective. What if I didnt have on that ball cap and glass gotten into my eyes, without any questioning I would of wreck into other vehicles either killing myself or someone else, or what if I was heading home from a family outing, my whole family could of easily been at risk or glass getting into my childs eyes... For anyone reading this review wanting to know more my email is available.I also have pictures for anyone wanting to see the cause of such happening. I feel very let down after seeking help with none offered from the dealership nor Chrysler themselves. Most definitely with this being my 3rd one. Not knowing what to do I began researching trying to find out how could this possibly happen and I came across not just this being a issue that already been known about but theres a class action suit in place as well... Hope I was very informative to all readers.

We got a brand new Cherokee Sport 2017 on Aug.10th, 2017. Within 24 hours we noticed the drivers doors was not locking. Went to dealership and now one month later after 8th time going back and forth and replacing new parts on a New CAR, the dealership/mechanics fixed one problem and another appeared. Today we were to pick it up again. ALL fixed they said and it is now back to square one with the same problem that the door wont lock. Sent a complaint letter to Chrysler, that this car is clearly faulty. But they will not refund or do anything. No customer service whatsoever! We paid in full for the car to the dealership. We had to leave the car at the mechanic on August 30th. Today is September 11th and we still dont have our car! We purchased a brand new car and we had it hardly at home. Is this normal that Chrysler does not take responsibility for their faulty cars and basically sold us a lemon and now we have no car, no compensation for our stress, time from our work and family going back and forth? The customer service lady at Chrysler said that your car is now fixed. How horrible that even sounds. That a brand new Chrysler car we had less than a day is now fixed? Chrysler is telling us to go to the dealership, dealership is telling us to go to Chrysler and discuss a refund. They are just passing the buck and us consumers are paying for it! What kind of dishonest business is this to scam families of their hard earn money and now we still dont have our new car we purchased for a peace of mind and a safety of our family!

I find out after getting my credit pulled that Chrysler is reporting me 30 days late. I get a manager on the line who looks over the account and agrees to fix it but I have to dispute it. My husband and I dispute and we receive mail that it has been removed. My husbands 30 day never was removed and was told to give it time to update. The next month we then find that he now has 2 30 day late payments but I don’t. Once again, we’re going to send it to our Audit department and blah blah. I wait a week and was told, Yes we made a mistake. Dispute it and we’ll fix it. We dispute again and yes the remarks change on my husbands credit to current and the late remark I had removed magically reappears BUT we’re current. I CALL AGAIN “No man you were late.” Really? Then tells me I’m late for different months than what’s reporting on my credit report. In a nutshell I have 1 late payment and my husband has 2 but we have the same account. Makes sense right. Chrysler has dropped my credit score 80 points and refuse to fix their mistakes.

I reside 45 minutes from the Fiat warranty repair site. I had a clip go out
I reside 45 minutes from the Fiat warranty repair site. I had a clip go out on a trunk cover, which Waynesville Fiat ordered for me to be able to have the clip installed at the Marion NC Chrysler location (which is 20 minutes from me). No one ever called me when the part came in at Marion NC Chrysler, and when I went there to have the clip installed they refused to install it as its a warranty part, and since they were charged for the part by Waynesville Fiat ordering it for me, they could not give me the part to take to Waynesville NC Fiat either, nor would they give it to me for free, nor did they offer to mail it to Waynesville Fiat for me so I could have the warranty work done on the next oil change. The Marion NC office parts guy was kind and calm, but the service adviser was short with me and said I could call Waynesville Fiat myself. The dealership was closed when the Marion office was open so I could not call them that day. I contacted Fiat consumer service various times and nothing has been done about the issue, other than callers from Fiat have called me twice (two separate people two separate times) and left voicemails with no return telephone # provided so I could not return the calls back to the individuals myself. I have dates of my activities and theirs if needed. I have also told them that I have a front windshield that appears odd around the mirror area, to which no one has said a word about trying to assist me with this either. Today, 1-3-2018 I called for my third attempt to speak with Fiat (at 1-888-242-6342) and immediately when I started talking, I was hung up on. I then called back and spoke with another customer service rep who listened, but here is the help or lack of help I received again today: She stated that she sees there is an existing case open on my complaint and gave me the case # as: #**. She said there is a Jolie listed who is working on this case, but she could not locate how to contact her. Then said she that there is a Jason who called me and his telephone # is: 1-800-9009. I asked her what the missing #s were and she said, I dont know as he works up north and I work in Florida. I replied with, So we know Jason has worked on my case, but dont know how to reach him? For real? You dont know how to reach him either? She said All I see is that he works in the Chatham location. I said So we dont know where Chatham is at? In Georgia? Or any other specific state? She said No. Im sorry, but I dont know more. Then she followed with, Wait… I see a Kenneth in Chatham that has worked on this case as well. His # is: 1-888-242-6342, and I think this # is his extension: **. She then asked if there is anything else she could do for me and I was shocked as she was expecting me to try to call back again instead of her contacting him for me with me on the line already. I then attempted to call the # which I learned was the same # I had contacted her on, and there I found there was no way of plugging in this extension she provided me. I started this original contact on 12-02-2017 and to this day I still dont have any resolution nor a way to get this resolved via Fiat customer service. I will be documenting all my e-mails and call info in a Word document so that when I finally hear from someone I can provide more details that this to whomever wants to see how disrespectful this company is to its customers after a sale. If my VIN is needed I will gladly provide it once I am contacted. I would like to see this company who is owned by also an American company Chrysler act like they know what good customer service is all about. So far everyone has dropped the ball. Also today I was reading two different articles online about automobile customer service and it appears Fiat and Jeep are at the bottom and Chrysler is nearly at the bottom too... Am I surprised? No, not at all. I need resolution to this clip to my truck that someone needs to order for me under my warranty for installation, and also this window looked into, and as much as I hate to say it I believe that this will require more on my effort than it will require of them and I think that that is terribly disrespectfully of a paying customer. I am hoping you all can assist me in getting someone to be responsible for resolving all my issues including the fact that I have worked harder at this resolution than Fiat/Chrysler has combined. In closing, other than the customer service, I have loved my car and hate the fact that I would have wanted to purchase another Fiat, but with all the disrespect and non-caring attitudes and ways of this company it would be foolish of me to buy another car from them. I am hoping this review will help others to know what they are getting into, and hopefully someone at ConsumerAffairs will assist me in getting these issues resolved with Fiat once and for all.

My husband and I have been loyal customers for about 15 years. We purchased
My husband and I have been loyal customers for about 15 years. We purchased 2 Town and Country vans and leased one from Humes. My first husband (passed away) and we had purchased 2 mini vans from Humes, but a different salesman who was no longer there. I have driven nothing but Chrysler vans since the 1980s. Bob was our salesman for the last 3 we had. During all the years we (and me and my first husband) had these vans no one but Humes serviced our vehicles. That’s decades of making money off of servicing our vehicles. We kept up on oil changes as well, driving from Erie/Millcreek out to Waterford for all of it. I am highly disappointed that when we went in to inquire about trading our Town and Country Limited in for a Pacifica the only offer we received was one from Bob. My husband asked you if we get anything for customer loyalty and you stated that’s why you gave us an additional $1000 for our trade.I asked if anything could be taken off the sticker price and was told the sticker price is now more in alignment with what the dealership pays for the vehicle. We all know this is not true. It is bad enough he didnt offer to take a dime off the sticker price, but the lie just made it worse. We weren’t born yesterday. Needless to say, we were stunned receiving this treatment after being loyal customers (combined with me and my first husband – for decades). Maybe Humes just gets complacent and takes loyal customers for granted, thinking if they’ve come here for years they will continue to do so. Unfortunately, I will never recommend Humes, nor Bob to anyone. I really liked my Chrysler vans, but not enough to be treated like this. We walked out of Humes and never looked back. We only received one phone call back from Humes after we left. We weren’t home and he never called back. They didn’t show they wanted our business.Another Chrysler dealer in Ohio knocked off $5,000 in incentives and price right off the bat before our trade on the same Pacifica we inquired about. We also negotiated a price for a CPO Honda Pilot Elite (even more expensive than the Pacifica), 2018 with 3,000 miles on it and got it for less than what Bob’s first offer to us was. They even gave us $1000 more on a trade then we were offered at Humes and it wasn’t even their vehicle. It was an unbelievable deal. Honda in Erie will be the ones getting our business and recommendation from now on. They were very friendly, made it known they wanted your business and clearly showed they were more than willing to work out a deal so we could all be happy. The owner is the most personable, friendly, businessman I have ever met. He is constantly walking around seeing if he can help anyone in any way.Since buying the Pilot I have taken my brother there to buy his first Honda. He also was very satisfied with the deal he received (after being a loyal Toyota customer for decades) and said he will be going back to Honda. He said he was never treated that way by Toyota either. The only reason I would give Humes one star is because of the service dept. The guys we dealt with in service were always very friendly, knowledgeable, nice to deal with and the service was good. If we had been treated better by sales after all these years we would have kept coming back. Loyal customers deserve something.Hands down, Honda will be my recommendation to everyone I know and I will make it my mission to help and/or go there with everyone I know that needs a vehicle, so they don’t learn the hard way, or get taken for granted. Humes salesman’s unwillingness to work with us taught me to do so much more research on negotiating a deal that I will never be taken advantage of by any car salesman ever again. So, thank you for that.

I purchased a 2006 Town and Country Limited in 2009 w/ 32,000 miles with maint. records. Today it has 145,250 miles and is as solid as the day I bought it. My only expenses is 2 batteries, 8 tires, oil changes and fluid checks every 3,000 miles, 2 tire sensors and I was told if well maintained could easily run 250,000 miles. We just moved back from Florida so at my age of 83 I should have 4 wheel drive. So we went shopping for a 4 wheel drive Town and Country and found out they dont exist. So we purchased a 2017 Subaru Outback 4 wheel with 25,000 miles and couldnt believe how roomy and road quiet they are and the 3.6 engine has a lot of snap. Just so you know if Town and Country made a 4 wheel drive van I would own it.

My first car was a Chrysler Lebaron Convertible. It was a beauty. The best part was the rear seats which are really crampy in all Convertible even the top of the line one but in Lebaron they were spacious as Lebaron Convertible is made out of a Lebaron Coupe which gives it the back seats as wide space as in any other 4 door. Bought a Sebring Convertible as Lebaron was taken off production & replaced with Sebring to increase the price. Chrysler again played a game, took Sebring off market so ended up buying a 200 as fell in love with Lebaron so had to have Lebaron or its babies as I call Sebring/200. Anyway I have been happy with Chrysler since my first purchase of Lebaron & will still love them.

I have a 2013 Town & Country. We bought it in 2014, used. At 90,000 miles the transmission went out on my van. I had it towed into the dealership. The dealership rebuilt the transmission under warranty. About a week later I had to bring it in more emission issues. I paid out of pocket for this. A few months later more transmission issues. Dealership asked Chrysler for a replacement of the transmission. They were denied the request and one again REBUILT the transmission. Per the dealership everything they did and every part they replaced/fixed is under warranty for 2 years. Since then I had it back into the dealership with transmission concerns. Shifting really hard, clunking or dropping into gear, etc. Most recently in April I took it in with concerns. They just kept saying “the transmission will get a feel for the driver and how they drive”.Also said that there were no check engine lights on so to them there were no issues. Fast forward to July. I back up to see a puddle a fluid under the van. Drive it to a shop and they say there is so much wrong with the transmission they can’t even begin to diagnose it. I have it towed to Tom O’Briens in Indy. I waited for almost 2 weeks with NO calls back from Chrysler. I was without a vehicle the entire time. No offer by the dealership or Chrysler for a loaner or rental. I was told by the dealership that Chrysler was not going to cover the cost and that I wasn’t able to talk to the person that made that decision.My “Advisor” said that he read the email from the district manager that stated the Chrysler rep did not want or should not have contact with the customer. The absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced. They completely ignored me for 2 weeks and couldn’t even be bothered with telling me that because Chrysler decided to not replace the transmission less than 2 years ago, now I have to pay out $4,000. I believe this Chrysler rep needs contacted by corporate for being a coward. If this is truly your policy and THIS is how you do business, SHAME on you.

This is my second one. I have 145,000 miles on it and have only done regular maintenance. Kept this one and just purchased a second one in April. Driving back and forth to Fl., NY, Johnson City TN several times a year, I have to depend on my car. I always use synthetic oil and am faithful about oil changes. I had to replace the tires naturally, had a break job, and occasionally added freon to the AC. I kept the older car for local driving now. In April I purchased a 2015 300S Touring Model from CarMax with 3200 miles. Love it except it has no CD player. Really stupid idea on Chryslers part not to install them in 2015 cars. Otherwise I love everything about it. All the bells and whistles.

I Own a Chrysler Town and Country 2008. The purchase of the new vehicle was reinforced by Chrysler lifetime warranty on vehicle powertrain. In 2019, the vehicle transmission failed and Chrysler would not replace the failed transmission, thus not standing behind its advertised warranty. The company is a simple failure.... You can expect to be flat when you are looking to use their advertised vehicle warranty. I will never buy a new Chrysler/Jeep vehicle again and all my family and acquaintances have learned this lesson and will never buy a Chrysler anymore. This sort of issue relies on a long term warranty promise. If you happen to need, you can be sure, you will not find it. Simply said, Chrysler/Jeep warranty promise is a marketing scam.

After making several inquiries online and by phone I went into the dealership to lease a new Pacifica. They knew who I was upon entry due to my multiple inquiries and I surely should have been flagged as a serious buyer. Chrysler.com shows a special for 229 per month. I meet with Basir and explained that I wanted that specific car under those terms. He proceeded to disappear for 25 minutes, to then tell me the lease would actually be $440 per month, and the 4400 down payment jumped to 7400. Total cost of 17,960 for 24 month lease with 10k miles per year. (748.33 mo) (How did a 229 lease on a $41k car double???) I said no thank you, that I was not interested, and having driven an hour to get there and waiting a half hour while there, I asked to use the restroom on my way out. Basir told me NO, GO OUTSIDE. UNBELIEVABLE!, UNACCEPTABLE! INEXCUSABLE!- I expect that dealerships will often be shady in their pricing practices and I usually choose to simply go elsewhere, but for this miserable excuse for a person to tell a prospective customer to relieve himself outside is unbelievable!!! (I went to the front and politely asked the receptionist and went anyway. I should have listened to him and relieved myself on their car lot). In any event, not only will I never go to or recommend DeCozen, I am no longer interested in buying a Chrysler. Good job guy!Point of fact, that evening I got a Volvo XC90 T6 through Volvo care for $825 per month. This includes 15k miles per year, includes car insurance, all maintenance, and wear and tear. Best car purchasing experience of my life! 10 minutes, online, and I didnt have to deal with a lowlife like Basir. DONT GO HERE! BUYER BEWARE. If you do, be sure to use the restroom prior.

But also followed the maintenance guidelines. They are comfortable, quiet, and roomy. Has the most room inside of any of the mini vans. When the seats are removed or stashed, you can fit a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood in the back. Average gas mileage 22-24 mpg. Love these vehicles.

We were looking for a reasonably priced family car. We decided on an American brand. The Chrysler 200 looked like a great deal. Its a 2011. It was nice with its heated seats and heated mirrors. I also like the way it looks. However, it is the worst car Ive ever paid so much money for. It is a hunk of junk. The heat stopped working, have had to replace wiring for windshield wipers and needs the air conditioning charged every month. Its super expensive to fix anything, too many blind spots and trunk is small as well.

Ram is now saying its not their fault because they do not make the part. It is a third party. At this point I am being told, Oh well wait. I use my truck for business and I feel have been very patient in waiting for help or an out of the box resolution. No one will help and as a consumer feel helpless!

They installed a 9-Speed FWD Automatic Transmission in the 2017 Pacifica. And it has been nothing but problems that Chrysler either refuses or cant fix. My car has been to Outten Chrysler in PA 4 times for the same transmission issues. They even claimed to have given me a new transmission. But I think this is a lie. I am going to have the vin # checked on the so called new garbage transmission. Outten Chrysler even seems like they would rather avoid me than to fix the problem. Doing some useless computer update (3 times already) that fails every time. I am not the only one. There are many complaints like mine for the same van and same issue. RIP-OFF.

Bought a 2015 Jeep from Londonderry Chrysler in Edmonton, AB. I hung up the one set of keys and they were rarely used. Starting using the new set, as the other set went into hiding in my house. I started using the new set in May of 2017. About July of 2017, I started noticing there was issues with the vehicle starting. It would hesitate, start, and then shut down all within about 15 seconds. One night, it wouldnt start. I made an appointment with the dealership in Stony plain as it was about 15 km away, whereas Londonderry was about 60km away. I left the jeep, and both sets of keys, and they determined that they had to be flashed and they couldnt duplicate the problem. I showed up there after work, and there was no charge. Went out to the jeep, and the same problem occurred. I went back in, and the shop foreman came out and determined it was the key. But they would have to test it. I left the key there, and they were to test it. I called them a month later, and they hadnt done anything, called FCA and all I got was a waste of 45 minutes, and was told because it was outside of warranty, and because I didnt contact them, (even though the dealer never contacted me), there was nothing they could do. There was nothing on the file, that they were told to test the key. I also question the validity of the workmanship, that they couldnt duplicate the problem. Just very disgusted with the level of service, concern, and that my time is not of any importance to these people. I will not ever purchase another Chrysler or its affiliates product again.

I bought a Chrysler Town and Country touring van. Its been a little over a year ago. I love it drives as good as a car would. In fact, I prefer driving it over our little car. So much more comfortable than other vehicles I have owned. But I absolutely hate the clock in the dash. I know it should not matter that it not digital and actually has hands on it instead and yes in case youre wondering I can tell time on a real clock with hands unlike some others these days. My reason is it hard to read from the back and at certain angles. Its so hard to get used to for some reason. The other thing is the temperature and stuff is on the dashboard like it better on the ceiling between the front seats much better.But my experience has been wonderful. And would not trade for anything else. It has many features. It is a 2010. And it was used when I bought it. Previously I owned a 2001 and loved it also but my new one has some options that I dont think I could live without now that I have them. Number 1 being to power doors with the touch of a button open. So helpful with the small ones I have in my care. One of them is disabled 2 year old, lots of therapy appointment. Space is a must and theres plenty of it. I also have a newborn, a lot of the time so hands are full most of the time when get load into the van thats why touch of a button remote opening is so important to me. Also, the Stow n Go seating so easy to use and gives you space when needed unexpected without having to remove a seat completely.

Recently my 2013 Ram came out of gear while in park causing damage to the vehicle. I later found out this was from a recall. I contacted Chrysler who stated it sounded like it was due to recall T79. They stated not to fix the vehicle until Chrysler could inspect it. I voiced my concerns about waiting to fix the recall since it was the only means of transportation and they still advised not to fix it and the dealership went along with Chrysler both refusing to fix the vehicle until they could investigate. It was just under a month when they finally checked the truck. The investigator spent 4 hours with the truck and said, Do not fix the recall until you hear from Chrysler. When I called Chrysler they stated my case was being handled by special investigations. I asked who was assigned to my case and they gave a first name only claiming they have no contact information for the department. After several days and phone calls to customer service I finally got an email address for Chrysler investigations group. I sent the email only to receive a sarcastic reply from a nameless employee the email was signed Special Investigations FCA US LLC. After all that time and them putting us at risk of another accident by refusing to fix the recall they stated they do not feel it’s due to the recall based on the report. I requested a copy of the report and they replied it is proprietary and confidential and they refuse to provide me a copy however are closing the case based on it. I have no way to get past customer service since they claim they dont know the name of their supervisor. This leaves me having to pay the damage for their negligence. Chrysler was fined in 2015 for the way they handle recalls but clearly did not learn anything from it. I also own a Jeep Patriot - unfortunately also a Chrysler product. Recently when I shut it off and removed the key from the ignition the vehicle continued to run once I got it to shut off. The radio came on by itself while the vehicle was off. Later the alarm went off on its own and the vehicle was making a ticking noise all while the vehicles power was off. I took it to the dealership who changed the ignition switch stating there was a recall on the ignition switch for another model but not mine even though they are the same ignition switch. Chrysler is a company you want to do your homework on before you purchase any products from them.

We have tried the last two months to speak with someone to discuss the lease, but have been unsuccessful. When contacting Chrysler we get the run around because we are no longer active duty. They want us to ship the car to Florida, pay 3000 dollars to ship the car to turn in the lease there in less than 9 months.

Car has been an absolute nightmare. For the last 2 years this vehicle has had some type of problem with it, the suspension being by far the worst. Ever since buying the vehicle 3 years ago, its probably spend very close to 6 months where it cant be driven. The suspension problems are so bad. Even after replacing multiple parts of the suspension, within 2 weeks of fixing them some other piece goes out. Its a never ending flow of problems. When I spoke to Jeep though they refuse to admit anything is wrong with the vehicles, even with many people reporting the same problems. I will never even come close to even just dreaming about owning any Chrysler relayed vehicle again. Ive seen cars 10 years older that are far more reliable than this one. I very strongly would encourage anyone reading this never to touch one of these cars. Unfortunately the problems are very widespread with their vehicles and they pick up far more complaints than other car companies with similar vehicles. Please, beware because they truly do not care how poor quality their vehicles are as long as they are being sold.

I bought it because it was a great deal but in the end I felt screwed. I actually wish I had never bought it especially being it was used. I would have not chosen a convertible. I would not have chosen a Chrysler or at least not a Sebring. It had a few problems especially electrical and not an all electrical system for my Windows doors or convertible top. But I liked the fact that it was a convertible. It had a CD player. It was all automatic and it looked pretty sporty to me but in the end it wasnt at all what I expected with all the problems I ended up having.

Absolutely loved the car. I like the style and it rides comfortably. The color is good, and it had enough trunk space for when we travel. The backseat was large enough that our dogs can fit as well. It was affordable, and it rides well for long distance travel. It also had very low mileage for the age, and was in mint condition. But I wish the windows were tinted, and I wish there was a built-in CD changer. I do wish the Hemi engine was standard on all the Chryslers, and I do wish we had a sunroof or a moonroof.

I would give a 0 star rating if possible. FCA has terrible customer service, a terrible product (2013 Dodge Dart Limited and JEEP Cherokee) and impossible to get a customer service representative or manager on the phone when you call. FCAs protocol is not to give a email address, extension number of the manager or the last name of managers and you have to wait for up to 48 hours for a callback. Nothing gets rectified to the customers satisfaction. DO NOT RECOMMEND any Fiat Chrysler products.

My Chrysler has lots of room and sunroof is very nice. Heat and air controls front and back. Radio in front and back as well which is perfect for my family. We can listen to our different music at the same time in this car. Most of all its a great car for family vacation or a massive shopping trip with my daughter. Has big backseat and a huge area in the back. Loads of fun and also great for girls night out with my friends or my sister. Love that its nice and built tough enough for my family. Love everything about the car.

I have a 2012 Jeep Liberty with the Sky Slider option, it is a cross between convertible top and a Sun Roof. It will not close all the way. The dealer tells me there are NO parts available to fix this. Now mind you they put this option in the Dodge Nitro as well. This car is only 8 Years old, and now cant drive it for fears of the top coming off, being rained on and damaging the leather interior, electrical components etc. The vehicle is useless.

The dealership prices for everything from oil changes to tires to tops is outrageous. But Ive never had problems with this car, Crossfire LTD convert 2007. Bought it from dealer with less than 5k miles. Very dependable with Mercedes-Benz engine and parts. It now has 76k miles, is my primary car, I get regular oil changes, change tires more than on any other sports car Ive ever had!! Follow regular changing suggestions. Got new top this year as rear window popped out while driving. And have had 1 accident which damaged front end, and am #105 on waiting list for front grill!! Otherwise, one of best cars Ive ever had!

Called up support for my 2014 Dodge Dart Aero. Fourth time its needed repairs since July 2018. Perfect maintenance, less than 40k miles, bought brand new. Bumper to bumper was expired, only had powertrain. Still having issues similar to something I felt in October of 2018 that they were supposed to have fixed. I paid for that out of pocket because again, powertrain only.The wait time for just a diagnosis was almost two weeks minimum, which is time I cannot just leave my car at the dealer. Yes, the dealer is independently owned and operated and subject to their own guidelines, doesnt change the fact that its Chryslers product. I got a diagnosis at an independent shop within minutes. Without even telling them about the previous repair, the spark plugs, they informed me those were already bad, among a valve leak that also should have been caught at the dealer, as he could tell based on build up it had been there for some time.With that information, I called Dodge support and gave them the information I had. I asked if there was any way I could use the independent shop, as I needed to go out of town soon and could not afford to let it sit at a dealer for almost two weeks (or more even) and I was told to take it to the independent place for repairs, then to call back and open a case for reimbursement with the itemized receipt of what was worked on. I was extremely up front that this was not the dealer, and what my warranty situation was. They informed me this was ok.I called today to inform Chrysler the repair was done and I was ready to open the case only to be told I had not done the right thing and that they couldnt help me. Even after apologizing to me for them giving me bad information, Im out over $700 because of bad instructions. I have records of the call from yesterday morning that they claim to not have records of, as they claim the associate I spoke to did not have any logs or notes written down. They would not check any logs whatsoever to even confirm that I called, or try to pull up a recording of the call itself. Ive got transcripts that show this. Will never, ever buy from Chrysler again. Every single step of the way they have been nothing but trouble, from the vehicle to the company.

We loved this 2013 Chrysler 200 until the transmission failed in 2018, when the car was less than 5 years old. When looked up information we found that Chrysler has had lots of people with this exact same problem. We felt there should be some sort of recall or other compensation, but did not receive anything. The transmission seized and there was no indication from the onboard computer until it was too late. The car needed a total transmission replacement for $2500. Will not buy another Chrysler.

I bought a used Chrysler Aspen after a boy texting and driving ran a red light and T boned and totaled my Tahoe. I love the look of the Aspen both inside and out! It drives like a dream! It is a 2008 model I bought 4 years ago with 50,000 miles on it. It now has 81,000 miles on it. I have just changed oil on it, no repairs! My HUGE regret is that it is no longer in production!!!

Vehicle (Chrysler 300) purchased 04/2013. Since the purchase of the vehicle I have had number of electrical and other issues with vehicle. Had a number of oil changes done @ Hoover Automotive, but on 108/12/17 found out that they neglected to add power steering fluid to the car. The Uconnect system had to be replaced on 10/29/2016. A number of fuses had to be replaced when car was initially purchased. Then on 07/22/2017 I had the fuel neck hose replaced. Gas was pouring out of the car at the gas station. Also at that time they found a Bad Humidity sensor that I replaced. Lastly on 03/02/2018 Representative noticed that engine light was on. Had to replace P0520 oil sender unit. Chrysler is aware of all of the repairs and refuses to reimburse for the most the issues. Last conversation was today with Patricia then Chris **.

I have owned Chrysler/Dodge minivans since 1984. My daughter grew up in a minivan so when I recommended the Pacifica for her growing family, they bought a new 2017. It has been in the shop over 20 times with multiple warranty issues (i.e. cannot fill with gas, radio problems, door problems, engine suddenly shutting off, emissions, numerous check engine lights that they couldn’t find). Horrible situation...one time they had car for 13 days. Another time check engine light came on as we were leaving dealership. Switching child seats is not easy or fun, get it together Chrysler.

The overall quality is low. Handles and parts break off easily. Interior still has a plastic smell. Parts look plastic, even chrome parts. The seats are still nice though. But it is not made as well as other cars Ive owned. It is a manual which I didnt want but compromised for price. It shifts hard and runs bumpy. Larger trunk was good though.

I purchased a 2014 RAM 5500 Diesel 4x4 Dump Truck new in April of 2015. On May 30, 2017 the alternator started on fire and caused $6,000 in damages. Chrysler FCA refused to help me as the warranty was 36,000 miles and my truck had just over 37,000 miles. I believe that since Chrysler recalled hundreds of thousands of Denso International Alternators in their vehicles due to a fire safety hazard that mine should be recalled too since it STARTED ON FIRE due to no fault of my own. They had a Mr. ** from their special investigator unit write a letter saying the warranty was up. That was it. Then he called when we complained and he was rude and belligerent. Even attacking the fact that this same vehicle was in a service station with problems within a couple of months of purchase previously. He was sarcastic and he lied, when caught in a lie hed react by mocking and when asked for clarification he said he didnt have to repeat anything. I have written to [email protected], the CEO of Chrysler for help with no response. Was finally given a Mayone ** who said she would help but did nothing and then went on vacation. This vehicle is my main source of revenue for my sole proprietorship business and this is my busy season. The truck is still in the service center and still not repaired. I want Chrysler to pay for the damages. My insurance company said that since the alternator was defective and Chrysler should have known with all the previous recalls that it was defective that they wont cover it.

I purchased a new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 Limited 75th Anniversary Edition with only 37 miles September 30, 2016. It was manufactured in July 2016. A few weeks ago while driving under normal dry smooth pavement conditions, the warning beep came on and then Service Electronic Stability Control light appeared on the instrument panel. I thought maybe it was just a bad connection so I made an appointment to have it looked at. The ESP module was replaced and I picked it up. The light came back on again. The technician found a loose connection and fixed it. Long story short. After the third time returning it for the same reason I went to pick it up again today. I drove it less than five miles from the dealership and it happened again. This will be the 4th and last time I will return the vehicle. Its currently at the dealership and there it will stay. I dont want it back. I dont trust its stability and its a serious safety issue.Under certain inclement conditions, the Jeeps stability could lose control causing it to overturn or crash. Under my state’s Lemon Law it meets all of the requirements. I will be requesting a refund for my purchase. Im so upset and heartbroken over it. We had to cancel a trip to the for fear of our safety in this unreliable vehicle and of course the fact it was in shop when we planned to leave town. Not to mention, the inconvenience of driving to the dealership four times with a 60 mile radius round trips.The service manager and dealership have been amazing and have tried everything possible to remedy the situation to no avail. Its just not going to be repaired at this point. I will update once I know what direction this situation takes. I was warned by several friends and family not to purchase any Chrysler product, especially a Jeep based on its reputation after being purchased by Fiat. I did it anyway and I have no one to blame but myself. BUYER PLEASE BEWARE!!! If you purchase a FCA product you may regret it... I dont have the service receipts in front of me to upload but Ive uploaded pictures.

I purchased my Chrysler with less than 30,000 miles on it and began having problems with the transmission immediately. I had my car at the dealership on two occasions with the dealership reporting they fixed the issues; however each time I would get my car back with the check engine light on and my transmission still having issues. When I called the last time to bring my car in to get it checked once again I was told my warranty was expired due to the 5 yr time frame had lapsed. I was told to call the Chrysler company to see if they could assist with my issue and without asking any questions declined to help. I am feeling frustrated and in dismay how a company can just turn a blind eye to a problem that was clearly documented before my warranty expired. Any suggestions?

To start off, my family has always been Chrysler customers. However, that will no longer be the case. We recently (within a year) purchased a brand new 2020 Pacifica. On January 29th, right after it passed 18,000 miles, the transmission went out. We were then informed by Chrysler that they only cover $35 a day for a rental and only for 10 days. No rental company in my area is below $55 a day. Then we are told that they cannot find a transmission for our vehicle. When we called to see if Chrysler would cover a rental completely since they had no idea when they would have parts and they promptly said no and that although they understood our frustration they would not do anything beyond what they were doing. Two weeks later they finally have a transmission on the way from California. It takes two weeks for it to arrive at the dealership service department in Virginia. That was two weeks ago and our Pacifica has not moved in their parking lot. Chrysler is saying that the technician doesn’t have a free lift available to get it in. I received an email today saying that the “Chrysler customer service” would check with the dealership again next week. I will NEVER purchase a Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge or Ram vehicle again. And I will not recommend them to anyone, EVER!
