Recent Chrysler Complaints and Recalls
In recent years, Chrysler has undergone a few recalls from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for a variety of reasons. Those reasons include:
- Cruise control cannot be cancelled. Cruise control will not turn off despite braking or using the steering wheel controls, which could lead to an accident. To overcome this problem, put the car into neutral and then brake until the car stops. Then shift into park to finally cancel cruise control.
- Transmission may shift unexpectedly to neutral. If the vehicle is in motion, this can directly lead to a crash.
- Airbags may not deploy properly. This increases the risk of an injury.
- Radio software security vulnerabilities. This could allow someone to remotely take control of certain functions within the vehicle, creating a hazard.
- Rear shock absorbers may partially detach. This could damage the tire or reduce braking efficiency.
- Unintentional vehicle movement. This could injure passersby or even cause a crash.
- Engine stall due to software problems. This can increase the risk of a crash.
- Rear pinion brackets may crack. This crack could lead to a loss of control.
- Center passenger seat belts may be inoperable. This increases the risk of an injury in a crash.
- Rear brakes possibly crossed during assembly. This could make the rear anti-lock brake system ineffective.
Complaints about Chryslers contain plenty of variety. These complaints include comments on:
- Electrical systems
- Vehicle speed control

If you’ve experienced one of the problems above, or something similar, you can report it directly to the NHTSA so they can compile your complaint in their database. If they receive enough complaints on the same topic, they may launch an investigation into the matter.
Report your problem with your Chrysler within the original warranty period and you will have the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act working in your favor. This federal law was designed to protect consumers from unethical warranty practices. If a dealership failed to fix a warrantable defect in your Chrysler within three or more attempts and/or your vehicle has been twenty or more cumulative days out of service, you may have a viable suit against the manufacturer for breach of warranty.
You may also have state lemon laws on your side. Like the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, these laws exist to extend extra protection to you, the consumer.
Don’t drive your Chrysler back and forth to the dealership for repairs. Robison Lemon Law Group LLC can help you navigate both the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and lemon laws to ensure you receive the justice you deserve.
