2015 Chrysler 200 Transmission Problems
Many years ago, we wrote about the stalling problem with the 2011 Chrysler 200, and believe it or not, we still receive an occasional call regarding the problem. However, a much larger issue has monopolized the phone lines as of late — 2015 Chrysler 200 transmission problems leaving drivers with check engine lights, harsh shifting, and the occasional loss of power.
2015 Chrysler 200 transmission problems stem from the new 9-speed automatic transmission that was designed for the vehicle. As in the case of many new features, there are a variety of transmission, electronic, and software glitches that are driving customers crazy. In addition, being that the transmission is relatively new, many 2015 Chrysler 200 drivers have to return to the dealer again and again for transmission service because it seems as though no fix is permanently resolving the transmission defect for good.
If the check engine light is coming up repeatedly on your dashboard, you feel your transmission is slipping, you are experiencing a loss of power, and/or your dealer is constantly updating or replacing your transmission control module (TCM), you may have a claim under State Lemon Laws or the Federal Magnuson Moss Warranty Act. Potential remedies could include a full repurchase, a brand new car, or even if the problem is eventually fixed, significant compensation to reflect the diminished value of the vehicle as a result of the transmission problem.
As a firm that has already successfully resolved numerous claims surrounding 2015 Chrysler 200 transmission problems, we cannot stress the importance of looking into your rights, creating a solid paper trail of invoices, and speaking with a Lemon Law Lawyer in your state regarding the matter. After all, these consumer laws give you the power even if the transmission is leaving your car powerless.

I’ve had my car to the garage many times. The first time was a software update. I had no power. At this time the car only had 300ish miles on it. Other times it was for jerking or shifting hard. Was told since the computer is NOTthrowing a code we can’t tell or help you. Now when pulling out of my parking space at work the comes to almost a complete stop then will go. I’ve called chrysler and all they could tell me is if I’m not satisfied keep taking the car back. Worst car I ever had & will never have another or recommend it. I’m in negative equity with this damn car now & im stuck. Does it take a bad accident or deaths for them to fix this issue that I’m sure they are very well aware of but refuse to help consumers. Way to go chrysler.

My chrysler 200 2015 has the exact same issue and in that exact order. 2nd time in the shop in less than 2 weeks and they say “be patient with us”. Just got it out of the shop and again the gears are sticking so bad that my 10 year old sister asks “what’s wrong with your car”. I am also between a rock and a hard place.
July 5th, 2016 at 5:33 pm
My 2015 chrysler 200 s is going back into the shop for the 12th time. Check engine light is on and just got it out the shop 2 days ago. It kept trying to shut off. They had it this time for 6days. Worst car ever.
July 9th, 2016 at 10:33 am
I live in Texas and I’m having these exact problems you mentioned with my 2015 Chrysler 200 Limited. Every time I take it to the dealership they address the recalls, update software, and a week later I’m having the same problems with the trans slipping and losing power. It has left me on the side of the road and the side of the freeway multiple times and has almost caused me to hit another car and another car to hit me. I’m recorded video of this happening and have invoices from each visit to the dealership. How hard is it to get them to buy this POS back? I don’t want another Chrysler and I don’t want them to keep “fixing” it. I only have 3k miles left on the 3 yr 36k mile warranty. please help

I purchased my 2015 200 Chrysler I did all the recalls they told me to come get fixed I swear it stays in the shop more than what I have the car. Something wrong with the brakes the air bag light comes on, the emergency brakes pops on while I’m driving. The car shut off while I was driving on the freeway car stopped so hard I got choked with the seatbelt luckily I made it out safe. I put the car in the shop and got into a rental same day after complaining to Chrysler then I got hit In the rear end with the same exact 2015 200 Chrysler the lady that hit me told me she couldn’t stop the car I was take away in the ambulance my hip and my leg is in pain everyday this happened in May of 2016 I got a call from Chrysler the same day of my accident i told them I called and came into the shop complaining about this car and they said yes I’m looking at that now I say well I was in an accident they said well I’m so sorry to hear that and can we set up a payment smh Chrysler doesn’t give no Fuck about the ppl they putting in these cars I can’t trade it in because it will be negative equity so basically I’m fucked. I’m a single mother of 2 I purchased my car in December of 2014

2015 Chrysler 200, purchased August 2015 now has 40,000 I think the odometer is clocking double miles because there’s no way I drive that much. The past few days the car has loss power, this happened about 4 months ago for the first time. I was on the e way and it just loss power and promoted me to put the car in park. Today the traction light, check engine light, and battery light all came on the dash. I have a one year old, reason I purchased the car, not only do I not feel safe but I’m terrified of being rear ended. Dealership says car is burning oil and needs to be tested to see why… sounds like BS to me. Help!

I brought my first 2015 Chrysler 200 back in march. It had about 36000 miles on it. I loved it but then I had to get a tire fixed. Then I heard a noise in my front end. They gave me the run around till I went some where else n just had them look at it. I took it to Chrysler and told them what the other mechanic said. So they looked at it and realized my control arm and front struts were bad. This was like three months after I got it. I had a rental for a week or two. Got my car back n less then two weeks I was leaving home n my front end completely fall apart on some train tracks. Even the tow had problems getting it move. So we find out they forgot to put a bolt to hold it all together. I could have died if I was on the highway were I was going. So they gave me a check for all the payments I made and gave me a new car. So now I have a 2015 Chrysler 200 with only 17,000 miles. I’ve had it two months n its been in the shop for two weeks now. The check engine light kept coming on. The first time I took it in they reprogrammed something. Two days later it came back on so then they said they had to take my transmission out. I was so mad at this point. Made two payments and already my transmission had to come out. So I pick it up today and they had to take it apart piece by piece to replace the snap ring and clutch I guess. Not even 20000 miles. I will never get another Chrysler ever and as soon as I can get out of this loan n with other dealer im going. The service sucks. Sales was awesome but their service part is horrible. I even had them put a automatic starter on it and that I even had to go back a few times till they got it right. I love the car but way to many issues. Haven’t even been with Chrysler a year n I’m over them already. When I picked my car up it had a sheet of ice on it with a pile of snow so when I went to leave I had to clean it off myself as they all walked around watching me. I was out there for 45 mins cause I didnt have a ice scraper. I used a marker from work cause that’s were I was going after. I was not dressed to do all that so I was frozen when I left. So disappointed in the fellows that work there. I know its not part of their job but sparing a few mins to help wouldnt have cost them anything. Especially after everything I’ve been through with them.
January 5th, 2017 at 10:58 pm
Same problem as everyone…my car have been in shop for recall once then for check engine light couple months later, Then i received another recall. The problems was getting worse stalling out so i took it to O’ Riley they told me the problem before the 2nd recall came out (transmission module) but the service guy was so upset that I told him what I knew to where he treated me like crap I been afraid to take it in to them every sense, but i had too my car would not start at work they charged me $300 saying it was the battery but problem still continues. I have arugued and everything to where im tired i hate this car and regret getting it the performance is horrable. Too many issues to list PLEASE DONT PURCHASE!!!!
February 1st, 2017 at 11:12 pm
I’m going through a lemon lawsuit, where chrysler offered me 3,000 dollars to go away… what is 3,000 gonna do me when this car has no resale value and is still defective… my warranty is up in 7,000 miles…plus the net equity leaves me with no options if they r not forced to buy it back… do I have any other options?
February 16th, 2017 at 5:02 pm
27th day in the shop. 4th visit and now I have an open ticket with Chrysler. She said they were going to do everything they could to fix the issue. Good luck. I lave 19k miles on it and this all started 4 months ago. I want out of this car. It goes into limp mode and “bucks” down the road. I think the guys in service are as sick of me as I am of them. I sincerely wish Chrysler would just recall all of these cars. So very, very unsafe.
February 20th, 2017 at 12:34 pm
@Katie: I agree with you. Please visit https://www.lemonlaw.com/lemon-law-firm.html and contact the firm in your state to discuss the matter.
February 20th, 2017 at 12:50 pm
@George: Is it a lemon law or a breach of warranty case? Are you going through a lawyer or handling it personally? If you are working with a lawyer, seek their counsel on if you have the ammunition to go for more. Without all the facts, it would be impossible to provide any more info on the matter.
March 13th, 2017 at 9:26 pm
I have a 2016 Chrysler 200 Limited. Worse car ever. I’ve had new cars before, no problems until Chrysler. My brother and Cousin both purchased brand new Sebring and 300. Nothing but issues. They warned me not to get one. My car (where do I begin): check engine light several times, transmission “stop and go” in busy traffic, persistent burning coolant smell, replaced radiator, replaced engine harness (mind you a recall part that I never was notified of), endless transmission codes, the list goes on. I just got an attorney after finally speaking with a snide, monotone customer service manager and being promised phone calls and never receiving any. Please do yourself and get an attorney. Do not try to trade these cars and get in more debt with negative equity. We work too hard for our money to give it away. I will keep everyone posted on the progress on my case.
March 26th, 2017 at 7:10 pm
I have a 2015 Chrysler 200 and I am having the same problems as everyone else, I took my car into the service dept at the dealership twice about the jerking instead I was jerked around with the people telling me there was nothing wrong with my car. needless to say almost 50000 miles later they want to buy it back, knowing now its based on Kelly Blue Book its not worth much as it wasn’t from the beginning all of this could have been avoided a year ago. I really like the car but for me to make the same mistake twice i would be an idiot not an option…Chrysler get yourself together this is not fair to consumers!
May 15th, 2017 at 8:56 am
I have a Chrysler 200 I’ve had so many problems my Engine light keeps coming on and I take it to the dealer when the light goes off they say they can’t look at it. Now I was at the stop light my service Transmission light come on and the engine light it wouldn’t move gear I had traffic backed up. These Chryslers are not good cars I’m scared I’m gonna be on the Highway and it does the same thing…
May 16th, 2017 at 1:20 pm
I was in a rental for a month due to within my first 6 months I had to get a new transmission and even after that I told my car in several times and told them it wasn’t driving right. They said it was because they suppose to drive like a “golf cart”. I had to get serveral updates. This last time my life was coming on saying service air bag system. Toke it in got it fix, Same day miliage started blinking called and they said i had to bring it in again for reconfiguration. I tell them every time I call or go up there that I really hate my car and it is not worth $503.00 a month. I’m so disappointed for this to be my first brand new car!
May 16th, 2017 at 1:23 pm
I forgot to add the jerking it does when im in stop and go traffic. UGH
May 17th, 2017 at 5:21 am

My car shut off in the middle of the road and sometime it would jerk but never thought anything of it until now so I call Chrysler dealership and they told me they can not serve me until Monday but today is just Thursday. What am I suppose to do until then. I am a mother with 2 kids need transportation.

August 2nd, 2017 at 2:04 pm
Having the same issues as a majority of everyone on here. Upon purchasing this 2015 Chrysler 200 I had to take it to the dealership due to very harsh shifting. They told me it needed to have the CPU “flashed” to update it. Took the car back no more than 3 months later for the same issue. “Flashed” the transmission again. Dealt with the harsh shifting for months again after that until the car started to lose power while driving. This was very scary on one occasion due to the fact I was turning off of a major highway across traffic when the power failed due to the transmission. At this point I had moved from Indiana to Colorado. Took the car in and basically had to fight with the dealership to really diagnose the problem. Turned out it was a transmission failure and they changed the transmission. 3 months after changing the transmission the car was back to its usual harsh shift. Need out of this car. Paying 500 a month for a car that is a nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!! Called Chrysler today and they “opened a case” have to take it back to the dealership tomorrow. What are my options here? Chrysler needs to be held accountable for this. 5 times in the shop for the same problem. LEMON
August 27th, 2017 at 3:04 pm
This is unbelievable all of these issues.I have had my 2015 200S for 2years now and 3 to 4months after getting the car I experienced stalling occasionally jerking. I called dealer the dealer recommend to put it under warranty for repairs and every time I ask about recall they say no recalls for my vehicle. Today same issues jerking not taking off properly and now even after oil change it smell like something burning under my hood I ask dealer they reccomand getting fluids flush due to my millage being at 40,000 .really so why when millage was at 20,000 it always smelled like oil was burning or something and I pay over $50 for my oil change. I told my fiance company they can come and pick this piece of junk up I’m not about to keep paying $400 a month. Not to mention I can’t go through car wash the gears shift always get stuck when I’m trying to pull out of car wash I have a hard time switch shifter from neutral to drive.
August 28th, 2017 at 7:02 pm
Oh my!! So glad I found this. I have had my car in shop numerous times since getting this hunk of junk for all the same reasons (shifting hard, running rough, hesitant when giving gas etc) and now I am alos losing power. Had battery, alternator checked and all good there. Cleaned battery cable with recommended stuff and reconnected and still doing it and now giving me all kinds of errors. I have also emailed Chrysler with absolutely no response. Dealer hooked up everytime prior and said they were not getting anything so nothing they could do. Have had in for all recalls done prior. Now I will be contacting dealer AGAIN since I just got stranded AGAIN at a restaurant out of town. RIDICULOUS
August 30th, 2017 at 4:38 pm
I will not go into the shady practices of the dealership that sold us a 2016 Chrysler 200, however, after driving it off of the lot and driving onto an on ramp for I-95, some 200 miles, the vehicle lost power. Have only had the car for 2 months and have lost power approximately 8 times since driving it off the lot. Trying as we speak to arrange a buyback from Chrysler. Getting jerked around about even bringing it into a dealership to check it out. Needless to say the vehicle is still under factory warranty with only 243 miles on it when we bought it. Dealership wouldn’t give a loaner car unless they can reproduce the issue. From researching the issue, I can see that this problem has been occurring since 2011 and it has not been resolved. I am contacting the Attorney General of the state I bought it in and the state where I live. This is crazy. I believe the original dealer knew of this problem and sold us the car anyway.
September 6th, 2017 at 1:20 am
Bought 2015 Chrysler 200. Received no recalls engine came on car stalling no power burning smell when oil changed. Got strained bc key fob wasn’t recognized car locked me out and wouldn’t stop beeping and last flashing. I will be taking this back to dealership in morning after finding out all recalls and safety issues. I bought it new. I will not have it fixed this is a flat out LEMON! What are my legal rights I bought extra warranty and 24 hour service plan. 5 years or 100,000 miles. This car is a danger I am a single mom who drives nights due to job. I paid 6500.00 down plus they gave rebate of 2500.00. I want vehicle replaced this is absolutely poor business
September 6th, 2017 at 1:21 am
What’s my legal right to deal with this bc this most certainly is a lemon
September 13th, 2017 at 8:32 am
I’m currently siting at the dealership again. I bought my 2015 200 in Oct of 2014. About 2 months after I get a warning light. The first of many. I had the transmission go on me while I pulled it of a parking spot and twice while driving one of which I had my kids in the car. My car was in for the transmission for 23 days before they put in a brand new transmission. Even with the new transmission I’m experiencing the jerking, shift changes, delayed acceleration etc.. Now I have a new problem again while driving with my kids the service airbag light comes on. Hey guess what when that light comes on it means the airbags are not working.. Great. They fixed it in July and now they are changing the wire harness. I have had numberous calls to Chrysler and they will not escalate the problem relating to the car. ” I don’t have a name” is what I’m told. The car has cost me more money than anything between the extra gas to drive it back to the dealer and all of the car rentals I’ve paid for. I hate this car, it’s not safe nor can I sell it as I wouldn’t feel right putting someone else in this position in my right mind. This is the first and last time I will ever buy any Chrsler car. Till they do something I’ll just continue to tell my story to more and more people. Have a nice day.

September 25th, 2017 at 9:06 pm
I just purchased my 2015 Chrysler 200s a month ago… Used obviously… I’m having the same issues as everyone else… The only difference is that none of my indicator lights are coming and is not throwing any codes.. I’m having problems with it jerking while I’m stopped at a light.. It doesn’t shift properly and never seems to wanna shift into 9th gear… The car only has 48000 miles in it… Tomorrow in taking it to the dealer for the first time since I’ve purchased it… hopefully the fix it right because i sure can’t afford to keep dealing with this… I don’t make much money as it is…
September 28th, 2017 at 2:27 pm
I just purchased my 2015 Chrysler 200 at the end of July with 23,000 miles on it, and I thought I was crazy when the jerking first started happening, but them my son and my husband both told me that I needed to call the dealership and bring it in. I brought it back to the dealership where I bought it and was told that they didn’t have time to do a test drive then and to bring it back on another day, and that if it did have a problem, it was going to have to go to a Chrysler dealership, so I decided to take out the middle man and called a Chrysler dealer today and was told that if the car is not throwing any codes or lights that Chrysler will not even look at the vehicle transmission or anything else, and that is how I found out everyone is having the same issue.. I should have done my research 🙁 I’m going to try to trade it in tomorrow afternoon, but I owe more than the piece of crap is worth… I’m so angry
September 29th, 2017 at 1:19 pm
Purchase my car last year in August now I’m having problems with it not wanting to start. fixed the recall part but that didn’t fix the starting problem I’m hoping it’s the starter but I have no idea at this point in time. And I can’t seem to find the part anywhere I’m going to have to call Chrysler themselves. Not happy with all the car troubles
October 4th, 2017 at 12:46 am
Same problems as all of you. Had transmission replaced 4 months after buying car new. New transmission, same problems. Almost got hit by a big truck due to transmission acting up. A passenger and a child with me. Emergency brake lock at times, window rows down whenever it feels like it. Key entry doesn’t work most of the time. Car jerks you around. I fear for my life and the lives that are with me when in this car. Dealer ship wont stand behind me on this. Not gonna let them do this to me. Gonna contact my attorney.
October 5th, 2017 at 12:12 pm
after reading all of this I have a new 2015 Chrysler 200 ltd it has low mile round 6000 if this bastard does this same shit state farm will owe me 15 grand if if it does this or I do have a good lawyer and the dealership went over my head on the car note which I’m damn piss off and saw my income was and sold it to me damn assholes………………………………I have lawyer for this when I need it…………………………………..garyp

October 6th, 2017 at 10:20 pm
My 2015 chrysler 200 with 26000 miles has been in the dealer for almost 2 weeks for the same transmission issues as everyone else the best they could come up with is i need new tires to make the transmission work properly but it never worked right from the beginning
October 9th, 2017 at 1:06 pm
First of all iam sorry because my english language is not very well
Actually i used to bought a korian car just like kia or huyndai its such easy and it dosent required any mentenance but when i see that chrysler 200s 2015 i repLace it with my optima in order to discover the best such as (shape,performance,sound isolation,other things)
But now I’m really unhappy with that fucking car every time i take my family they says (whats rong with your driving )the means that harsh shiffting espacially betwen gear 1/2/3 when I break down it jumbs respectively with shifting from gear 3 to gear 1 so the car harsh shiftting
Please tell me if any one find a solution for this problem…
October 18th, 2017 at 8:24 am
I have the same harsh shifting, service transmission light and engine light situation as all of the others. I have had my 2015 Chrysler 200s since May 2014. I have taken it in for the transmission twice. The first time they did some update and said it should be better, but it wasn’t. The second time I took it to a different Chrysler dealership to only be told they will test drive it but I would have to pay if I wanted a diagnostic test. Why? They already know these cars have problems with the transmission. Now, the transmission practically shut down on the highway on my way to work this morning. I have 69,000 miles on the car and still owe about half of the car’s selling price. They should recall all of these cars before people get hurt and/or lose their lives. Do I have any recourse?
November 13th, 2017 at 10:38 pm
I have a 2015 Chrysler 200 and i had it for 8 months and about 4 days ago i was driving on the freeway and my car started to smell like something was burning i thought it was my heater so i turned it off but then all of a sudden smoke started to come out from the top of my hood by the windshield wipers but no signal lights popped up, well i have never had a signal light pop up before, i looked to see where my car temp. was at and it was reading that it was still cool! It wasnt even telling me my car was over heating! Then fire came out from the hood so im trying to get off the freeway thank god there was an exit on right hand side because right then my breaks went out!!!!! My whole car locked up and i was heading in to on coming traffic and cars waiting at the light thank god there was a hill that i swereved up so i was able to avoid hitting someone possibly killing someone…. So my car stops on the hill and it lands side ways and i get out im so greatful my sons were not with me because this could of been alot worse!!! I get out and my whole front end is just in gulped in flames the firedepartment came fast but i have warranty on my car still so chrysler is suppose to be sending a investigator out there to view my car and to tell me what happened i hope they help me i paid so much for this car for it to almost kill me and now to drain me of my money im just so sad and i just want justice. I literally have dreams of me pushing the break and it not working having this experience made me so traumatized
November 14th, 2017 at 12:32 am
It is not serious that car is a bulsh..t dealers please stop giving people lawn for this car
November 14th, 2017 at 12:36 am
Chrysler 200 2015 is the worst car transmission plus computer problem not even 2 years giving that problems two times.
November 14th, 2017 at 3:54 pm
I had the cutting off while driving.. took it to the dealer after doing research and seeing the nightmare stories. They had me come in 3 times, (500 mile intervals) and told me my engine was consuming the oil too fast which was causing the car to cut off. They replaced the engine and my car only had 45,000 miles. That was two months ago, now I turn on the heat and the drivers side is warm but the passenger side is cold air. Bring it in today and a motor is shot.. The cost would be $421 to fix because it isnt covered. I have the 200c 2015 fully loaded, always had camry’s but my 2012 camry was totaled in July 2015 and I didnt like the new model so I made the dumb mistake of going with this mess.
My camry has always held its value, I always traded it in every 4 years and would get into a new one with the previous car paid off. Now, I am sitting in a car that was originally 28k when I bought it, decided to trade it in because all i see are problems ahead and the value is like 8k to 12k.. What the hell??? What a hard lesson to learn.
November 17th, 2017 at 4:49 am
Just bought my 2015 chrysler 200 limited a week ago it has a hesitation when I take off taking back to the dealership for the second time
November 20th, 2017 at 2:32 pm
I have a chrystler 200 limited. I bought it brand new couple years ago 2 months down the road they had to fix transmission. recently they had to replace my coolant thermostat and now my car keeps shutting off without a warning. I am going to sue Chrysler and i dont care. They already got sued for crappy shit before so maybe they will do something now. I dont understand how they keep saying they have never heard of this issue when there are hundreds of complains online? Are you waiting on someone to die from having this type of issue to do something about it? Has anyone sued them before? give me some tips please.

A couple of months ago the display on my 2015 Chrysler 200 said “Service transmission, unable to shift.” Took it to the dealership and was told that since the light wasn’t on they couldn’t find anything wrong with. A few weeks later the same message appeared while I was taking the car to have the oil changed. This time they tell me that the transmission is leaking from the transmission cooler lines and quick disconnects. And they tell me its not covered under the warranty. Note: I purchased the extented warranty from the dealership. They wanted roughly 580.00 to do the work. Since the parts weren’t covered I purchased the parts from the dealership and had another mechanic replace them. A week later I have to take it back to the dealership because of an oil leak. They had to replace the oil cooler lines which was covered under tbe warranty. The following week took it back to the dealership because the AC wasn’t working. They fixed the AC and proceed to tell me that tbe transmission lines are leaking. Then they tell me its covered under the warranty. They fix it and refund my money for parts i bought. On the way home the car is still shifting hard and twice it came out of gear. The display says ” put gear in P and select gear”. How am I suppose to do that on the interstate doing 65? Also, the car is slowing down all by itself. Lucky I wasn’t rear ended.

I have a Chrysler 200c 2015 on my way to work yesterday the check engine light and the service transmission light started flashing on the dash board. Shortly after the car started to slow down. I was almost to y destination so I parked the car. After work I took my car to the Chrysler dealership. The car has always had shifting problems, very rough shift. It is very scary when you are on the road or freeway and your car starts to slow or lose power.
January 23rd, 2018 at 6:09 am
WE NEED TO START A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT my car keep doing the same things loss of power. Transmission with an extremely long lag before shifting. Sometimes won’t go over 30 miles an hour. Check engine light does not come on and stay on it is not storing any codes in the vehicle it has told me to service the throttle body position sensor as told me to service the parking brake. My windshield wiper fluid does not work. It loses power and left me in the middle of an intersection with and the vehicle would not come out of Drive and I had to manually take the vehicle out of gear and when that was done it was flashing it was in drive..and push it out of the intersection. Sometimes when I turn my car off it goes into accessory mode instead of the off position. Traction control light continues to come on with the parking brake, other times the park assist turns on some times when driving slow. Other times it comes on and i cant get it to shut off without restarting the car several times.I have brought it into Chrysler and they told me nothing was wrong with it and these problems are on heard of then I brought it into Chrysler again and they told me that they can’t find any problem as everything has tested normal with it and told me just to take it home. I have all the proof recorded on my phone. How do we start a class action lawsuit? ??? And get rid of the car and the loans befor we all end up killing our self or someone els due to their ignorance???!!!!!!! My car is a 2015 200 all problems started at 40k when i bought the car it now has 60k on it.

I have a 2016 Chrysler 200 Limited. Brought it brand new. Had it for about 5 months when I realize the jerking. Took it to the dealership and they told me it was nun they could do because no lights was on. I continued to drive and it got worse. And I realize when I came to a complete stop I could have my foot on the gas to go and my car wouldn’t move until I lifted my foot up and put it back down. Then one day I didn’t drive it for about a week and a half cuz I would drive my Ma truck , I went to finally drive it and the battery was dead I guessed. So I tried to boost it off and it took about 30 to 45 minutes to finally cut on. When it did the car wouldn’t go. I put it in reverse and hit the gas and nun happened. I put it back in park then drive and it finally moved. But my car wouldn’t go pass 15 MPH. And the service light was on. I was like it’s no way. And on top of that I smelled a burning smell . The next morning I turned the car on and it was running fine. But i still took it to the dealership and they told me the same thing. Because my light wasn’t on it’s nun they could do. The light went off the next morning when I turned the car on. So maybe 6 months later my brakes seem like they was getting back. So I took it to the dealership and they said it was something wrong with my braking system or something like that. So I set a appointment for them to check it. Mind you I just got my oil change and they checked my car out and said everything was fine. Then it was Friday night I was otw home from work and my car was driving fine. But then I woke up Saturday morning to go to work and I was already running late. My car wasn’t start. It didn’t do anything. I tried to boost it and nun happened. I’m so sick of this car. It’s a piece of junk. Is there anything I can do

I have a2015 chrysler 200s. With the 6 cylinder engine. Having so many problems that i can’t list them all. Had it for 3 years and put 4 sets of tires. New hub bearings. 2 times for the transmission. Computer also. Had 7 recalls. Now check engine light is coming on and feels like the car is going to shake itself apart and also getting a burning smell. I am part of a class action lawsuit against chrysler. If anyone would like to email me i would be happy to give you the attorneys number. Its from almost every state. Had enough with the dealers inability and there lack of concern to help fix the car. I get nothing but attitude from the service department. Like im bothering them because i keep bringing the car in for the same problems over and over again.
February 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 am
I am having the same issue with my 2015 Crystler 200! One month to the day I had hard shifting in my car, took it in and they couldn’t diagnose. Time after time couldn’t duplicate, diagnos and just did a software update. Now, two years later, they are replacing the valve we will see if this works? I have made several complaints and lucky for me lemon law expired a year ago! I feel very unsafe in this car. The hard shifting sometimes throws us forward in the car, when coming onto the highway from a ramp the car will not shift and just stays in first gear so I come off the ramp going 20 something with cars going 70 to 80 mph! I feel like I’m going to cause an accident and feel so unsafe! The shifting has no rhyme or reason except for shifting from first to second. Here recently I have had trouble starting it as there is no power! I have finally had enough I called the manufacturer and made a complaint which is supposed to be expedited, we will see. I’ve taken it in and talked to the dealership over and over from a month after I purchased the car to now! I just made a complaint with NHTSA this is a government department of transportation area which monitors complaints and safety issues! If you do not feel safe in this car, please file a complaint with them it is so easy and may help us all! Their number is 1-888-327-4236! Or go to https://www.safercar.gov/ I wish I could have done something sooner!
March 8th, 2018 at 11:07 am
All of the problems are bad enough. But being financed through Chrysler as well, i feel like i am stuck. This is the 3rd time of going through this with the car popping out of gear while going down the road. I don’t feel safe in the car. I don’t want my family in this car. But i am so far upside down on it there is nothing i can do. And to top it off i call the dealership to set up an appointment to have it looked at and they tell me its going to be at least a week before they can look at it. NOW THAT IS CUSTOMER SERVICE!
March 15th, 2018 at 2:03 am
I bought my chrysler 200 2015 in Nov. of 2016 I drove itnoff the lot and the check engine light came on, it is now having the same issue as it did then. At 44,000 miles they put a new transmission in it and now it is doing the same thing at 78,000 miles .. my car has been in the shop over 30 times for the exact same thing every time.
April 6th, 2018 at 1:02 am
My car is doing the exact same thing as All above. This is ridiculous. Almost had a major accident today. Car just shut off while driving in busy traffic with my daughter in the back seat. Had to push it off the road. It started back up after the engine light, traction light and brake Iight all came on at once. I was able to drive it back home by putting it in neautral at every stop light. It would jerk hard and stall. This has happened several times now. Unsure of what to do.!i would love to join the class action law suit. Anyone with information? I’m going to the dealership in the morning but from the looks of everyone’s post, that’s not going to solve anything. This 2015 Chrysler 200 SUCKS! Please Anyone…. send information so I can join the class action lawsuit. Thank You

I have a 2017, brand new never owned before. Bought Feb of 2017 and by October I had problems with the acceleration. It would stop and wouldn’t go past 30 mph on numerous occasions. I’ve had it towed twice for that and on one occasion after it was “fixed” I made it a mile from the dealership and it did it again. One morning it wouldn’t crank, the message board said the throttle needed to be serviced and the engine temperature was too hot.. it was 30 degrees outside and sat cold all night. So they replaced the battery and the temperature gauge stays on the cold side. I called Chrysler to open a case after the third part they replaced for the acceleration problem and they kept having me take the car back to the dealership. I kept bringing up that it is having problems shifting gears and it jerks when it shifts or doesn’t accelerate as fast as it should be sometimes. The dealership said nothing was wrong and Chrysler wanted me to keep a log and wait for it to happen again. I’ve already almost wrecked because of this issue twice. The dealership I bought it from gave me a number to call and the managers wouldn’t talk to me. The number was a sweepstakes hotline. Everyone kept writing me off. I have an attorney looking into it and hope to get answers. Has anyone else from Georgia had any luck?
April 12th, 2018 at 5:24 pm
2015 chrysler 200 s. Goes into sport mode all by itself and I have to pull over and turn the car off and then back on. This caused the check engine light to be on as well. 150 bucks at the dealer just read the diagnostic? A bunch if bs. Help!!
April 12th, 2018 at 6:57 pm
My 2015 chrysler just started doing something close to what I am reading in this thread. It seems as if it is switching to performance mode while I am driving on its own but I think it is just stalling out and sticking in first gear. I then have to pull over turn it off and back on and then drive till it happens again. This kicked the check engine light on as well as the traction light. Then the dealership wants to charge 150 to diagnose it!!! Straight bs!!!
April 13th, 2018 at 11:05 am
2015 Chrysler 200, 68,000 miles out of warranty and purchased from a used car lot. Got the Transmission Service + Check Engine Light going down the HW and lost all power. Turned the car off and on again and was able to drive it off to side road. What options do I have if the car is from a 3rd party and with no warranty?
April 28th, 2018 at 10:14 am

I dont know what I’m going to do. Right now im without a car. Can someone give me some information on how to file the lemon law.
May 17th, 2018 at 7:21 am
I just bought a 2015 200s v6 awd. The only issue I have found is 2 to third is kinda hard and 4 to 5 does some crazy crap once in a while. Other than that is good so far. Has 40,000 miles on it now.
June 11th, 2018 at 10:21 pm
I’ve been reading all the comments and I’m having the same issues the biggest issue is the jerking!! I have called Chrysler and had a case open that got closed because eveytime I go to the dealership they tell me they can’t duplicate the problem because no codes are popping up they even drove it and still did nothing about it and I’ve been to several different dealerships and still nothing I don’t wanna trade my car and and become more in debt than I already am with this car I just don’t know what to do I’m paying for a car that barely gets me from point a to b!!!! Sad this is my first new car and I’m having such a bad experience I definitely won’t be purchasing anything Chrysler ever again
June 15th, 2018 at 7:27 pm
My 2015 Chrysler 200 Lx just reached 32k kilometres . Transmission problems for the last year or so and today lost power and transmission light came on !! This will be the 4th time taking into Chrysler !! I’m not a happy camper !! I love this car
June 22nd, 2018 at 11:09 am
I haven’t had my 2015 Chrysler 200C for a year yet. I’ve expressed multiple problems to the dealership in which I purchased a extended warranty on because it was a Chrysler alone. I hear a knocking noise coming from the front often, the service man couldn’t hear it so nothing was done. Some how all the stalling problems, jerking and delayed acceleration issues have been because of the oil needing more or a change, which is expensive. Most recently, on June 21st 2018, I started my car as normal to leave from work.. got on the side street and three different lights came on, engine light, my traction control light and some light that was blinking ( was a lighting bolt with )*( to it) … I assumed it was the battery or maybe the transmission. the jerking began right away, then it wouldn’t accelerate past 32 mph! I was holding up traffic with no idea what was wrong. I was too scared my car wouldn’t start again. I take it back to the dealership and they call me today, june 22nd 2018 and tell me “believe it or not, it was 2 qtz low on oil and the valves to open and close require oil to do and they weren’t opening to allow acceleration past 32mph.” and the guy laughed. Then recommended me bringing the car in every 2,000 miles for routine oil checks… why is my car burning through so much oil? The dealership is the only company who’s changed my oil since I purchased it. This is insane to me!
June 29th, 2018 at 8:41 am
my chrysler 200, 2016 has been acting up for the past month or so and even b4 that i loss count of how many time we been to the dealership because the engine and transmission lights keep going off. we took it to fire stone a week ago they said that we need to replace the transmission torque or whatever, then i called my dealership and we took it to the ferman chrysler days later on 06/25/18 and they said it was ok it needed a software update but they did not find anything wrong with the transmission. we just got it done 2 or 3 days ago and now this morning the transmission light is going off again and the steering wheel is shaking and the car is pulling when we accelerate and when we slow down. what the hell. and am still responsible for pay for this piece of crap car?
July 17th, 2018 at 8:56 pm
My 2016 Chrysler 200 has caused me several problems since I purchased it. First the radio/back up camera went out, then the thermostat, then the battery NOW TODAY IT CUTS OUT IN THE AIRPORT, AGAIN ON THE FREEWAY, THEN AGAIN AT GAS STATION. 2 Tow trucks and 2 dealership visits in one day. The first dealership claims the reset tcm and some other codes but sent me back on the road only to drive from Charlotte to Greensboro then it stopped again. Now it’s at the dealership and I’m in a rental car. My kids and grandkids were in the car it was very dangerous and scary. After looking at the other stories I’m even more scared and furious. I’m done with that car. I’m getting a lawyer asap. I’m going to be persistent and this is gonna stop. I don’t got money to throw away and I value my life. I’m pissed. Thank you for this page it clarifies what I knew, this problem has been known and they don’t care.
July 30th, 2018 at 2:06 pm
My 2015 Chrysler 200 limited is cutting off on me while driving took it to Chrysler 2 months ago. They said your oil is low and I needed a oil change. I did as they told me and got a oil change. I have always gotten an expensive oil change ranging from $80-$90 and the company I get my oil changed with always tell me I’m getting the best of the best but something is causing my oil to burn fast. So I will be going back to Chrysler Wednesday but I too have no lights on the car will literally cut off in the middle of me driving while I have my 6 year old in the car with me. It has done it on the freeway as well as on the street. I am totally lost on what to do, but I definitely want out of this car as it is not safe for myself nor my child. It is currently sitting in my parking lot as it has been for the past week until my appointment at Chrysler on Wednesday. My car is at about 54,000 miles I’m curious to know what are my options at this point because this is unsafe for my child and I.
August 4th, 2018 at 11:40 pm
Many of the above issues. Tires wear easily on the car. Doesn’t matter if I haven’t driven it. Mileage seems to be off in what distance I drive in a year. Periodic jumping during shifts, experiencing vehicle failing to start at all, tranny light on, shuts down in accessory mode which seems to drain the battery, etc. When I first bought it, someone had already had it for only 9 months, the Car Fax said there were no prior accidents although it immediately had to be repaired for damages. It was obvious that someone had an accident with it. RR has always made noises…etc… I read these comments that are familiar, to include equity loss and cost of repairs and rentals. Chrysler and my Special Coverage for the Car only pays $35.00 per day on rental, well today it costs $99.00 per day. Be nice to hear some good news.
August 5th, 2018 at 7:14 pm
My 2015 chrysler wont start. Just keeps making weird clicking noises. Keeps saying keyfob not detected when its in the car. Some lights keep flashing on and off. Its a total disaster of a car.. I cant get it to,the shop because i cant get it started.. Its been sitting in my driveway for 5 days. If the battery was dead the radio and interior lights wouldnt be on correct? Im at a loss. Help!!!!!!
August 7th, 2018 at 7:54 pm
Haven’t even had my car a year, it’s only had 1 owner besides myself, in the past couple months it would shift hard from 2nd to 3rd then sometimes 4th to 5th, other day I jump in it to go to work and the dash is filled with warning lights, cannot go in reverse or drive, cannot even shift into neutral. I shut the car off then restart it, luckily I was able to drive it to work, I had a mechanic shop come to my place of work to do diagnostic tests, they stated the transmission, the transmission sensor module etc. but that’s where it sat until it was towed to a Chrysler dealer why because it wouldn’t shift, as I start looking for recalls on this issue I find a ton of people with same issue, I called the dealer today to check and see what they figured out, he stated they weren’t totally thru the diagnostic tests yet, but my oil was 4 quarts low how convenient since it appears other dealerships try to pull the same shanningans, he said I possibly with have to have a new transmission my car has approximately 53,000 miles it’s my only form of transportation to take my teen daughter to and from the children’s hospital to see her specialists which is a 2 hour drive there and back. I pray Chrysler fixes my car the right way, I love this car it has been the nicest most comfortable car and has all the bells and whistles you could ask for, but now this, very disappointing. I will update you all as soon as I see what the dealership does to fix this issue.
August 9th, 2018 at 10:32 pm
Emergency brake locks in when stopped and you can’t move, My wife was pulling in our driveway when it locked up and blocked the road , which could have caused a serious accident. She jumped out of the car and stopped the traffic. I was outside and ran to get to the car and released the emergency brake and moved the car, This has happened 4 times. My car is still under warranty, is this covered?

I have a 2016 Chrysler 200 and have experienced many of the same issues I am reading about on here. In the last 2 weeks my car has stalled out twice while driving. Before that I noticed a lot of jerking when stepping on the gas and hard shifts between 3rd and 4th gears. This latest concern is a serious safety issue because I could have been in a serious or even fatal car accident when the car just stalls on the highway. Very upset!!
October 16th, 2018 at 11:28 am
I’ve had my 2015 200 for a little over a year now. I have jerking from 1st to 4th after that it’s ok for the most part. My check engine light comes on as soon as I hit 1/2 tank and stays on until I fill the car up again. This will make the 3rd time in 6 months I’ve taken my car in for these issues. Every time I get told the same thing. They either can’t find anything, my gas cap needed to be tightened up, updates needed to done, and/or they can’t recreate the issues I’m having. I’m ready to just get rid of this car and get something else. Another issue I’m having is when the check engine light is on the car will lose power and shut off. I drive on highways to and from work and this has made me very worried about driving the car anywhere.
October 16th, 2018 at 1:13 pm
I purchased this Chrysler 200 2015, June 2017… I am just now having issues with the car losing power. I’m on here to see what is causing the problem from a consumer standpoint. I’m scared to death of being injured in a vehicle collision due to my vehicle stalling. I’ll be going to a dealer within the next few days to see what the issue is for this problem. When it stalls, it takes a moment for it to restart. Thank god no car wasn’t directly behind me.
October 25th, 2018 at 4:46 am
My vehicle with about has similar problems as stated here.
Car stalled while in motion, wouldn’t accelerate.
Jerking forward and shifting gear
Other day car wouldn’t start after I stopped for gas. Key fob cannot be detected. Chrysler had to send a two truck.
Headlights went out and dealership cannot figure out the reason but want to charge me $500 to replace the bulbs.
Now the dashboard lights are flickering.
After an oil change today, dealership said that the codes they are getting are for voltage and brake modules among others.
Been in constant contact with Chrysler but no solution yet.
This car is a safety hazard and I cannot believe that no recall is out for this vehicle.
Please refer me to a lawyer in my area
November 5th, 2018 at 3:06 pm
I purchased my 2015 Chrylser 200c back in August of 2017 with 7k miles. I’ve been having problems with shifting, but it wasn’t anything major or too serious (so I thought), so I never thought anything of it. Just last week (11/1/2018) my check engine light came on. This was the first time this has happened since I got the vehicle. I immediately knew something was wrong (check engine light is never a good sign). Dropped it off at dealer’s shop the next day and it’s been there ever since. Called to see if there was any update. Service technician let me know that my 2nd cylinder (I have a v6=6 cylinders) was on 20, and normally it should be 140-160k. Now i have no idea what this means, but it sounds bad! I thought I was doing good by getting a newer car, but now looking at all these comments make me think I may have made the wrong decision when I chose this car. Looking for any ideas why this might be and could it have something to do with me having the car for only a year now? I only have 31k miles now

Bought my 2015 Chrysler 200 a year and a half ago. The first few months no issues. Now my check engine light is always on transmission jerked all the time and it dies on the interstate. Took car in for repairs after having issues with car stalling on the interstate check engine light coming on and transmission jerking. $900 later and the issues come back. And of course nothing was covered by my extended warranty. Now I’m being told that they will need to keep my car for about a week and would have to rent a car until they are done with mine. SOMEONE HELP ME BEFORE I’M IN AN ACCIDENT. This car is by no means safe to drive. Any help would be great.
December 1st, 2018 at 7:17 am
I am having the same issues as many others. Shifting hard, begin to move forward then jerks almost to a stop then forward again. Smelling of burning oil…but no codes so nothing can be “fixed”. Now I have a car that worth half of what I owe on it. I am stuck with a car that has no value.
December 10th, 2018 at 5:29 pm
I’ve had so my problems out of my 2015 Chrysler 200 it’s than been in the shop numerous of times transmission. It shuts down in traffic. My engine light comes on every other day I take it to the dealer they say nothing’s wrong with it.. I cut my heat on my car shakes. Air went out this is the worst car ever.. KENTUCKY
December 12th, 2018 at 4:03 pm
I went to STOOPS in Muncie, IN. I was approved for a Chrysler 200S 4-cyl. It has 27,000 miles on it. I test drove it and it seemed to be doing okay. I haven’t drove a car since 2011. I have always had SUV’s. I currently have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee (V8). I really liked the car based on the “gas savings” and the look of the interior. I checked the Carfax and it has had 1 owner. There are no crashes, mechanical issues, nothing. Now, finding this forum has me terrified because I don’t want to have a car that’s a piece of shit! Just because the first person didn’t have any issues, doesn’t mean I won’t. Side Note: they are paying off my Jeep loan ($3890) and my payments for this vehicle are going to be $386 a month. My insurance is going up from $114 to $147. And the plates are $442! Should I just wait and pay off my Jeep and then trade it in? Any suggestions???
January 16th, 2019 at 11:16 am
I have a 2016 200S and have had many of the same problems. The jerking as if a REALLY HARD shift that feels like you left your transmission laying on the road behind you. Or, you step on the gas and the car barely moves then all of a sudden BANG hits 60 mph. Many, Many times I get the key fob not detected and have to dig through my purse to be able to use it to push ignition. Or everytime you open a car door with the car running, it assumes the key fob left the car, when it is sitting in the console??? But the most aggravating is when you are in a hurry to get somewhere, you start car, and then the check engine light comes on, and the display shows “performance shifting not available” you can spin the gear shift forever, and it does not shift into gear. Then a message appears “Service Parking Brake”. Stopping and Starting the engine anywhere from 3 to 25 times will eventually rectify the situation so that you can drive. The check engine light will remain on for about 2 – 5 starts after that then it goes off. Cannot get to dealership because the light goes out before then, and they cannot check it if not on or cannot recreate issue. There is no rhyme or reason to why it happens. Has happened 5 times in last 7 months. Any ideas? Or what is my recourse? 21,000 miles on car.

I have a 2015 Chrysler 200 that I purchased in 2015 brand new. During the times where I’ve had the vehicle I’ve constantly complained about the transmission shifting very rough and oftentimes loss of acceleration power. After taking a vehicle back and forth to the dealership having the transmission control module flashed reprogram and reset they finally decide per Chrysler customer service to replace the transmission. Since I’ve had the transmission replaced the vehicle has been driving way better. It’s sad to say that it took me to retain an attorney for the transmission to be replaced there’s no reason why somebody’s to purchase a new vehicle and it drives like a piece of crap. Hopefully once my lawsuit with FCA is done I’ll be able to get enough money back while I’m able to get out of this vehicle. Also prior to me purchasing a vehicle brand new I found out that the vehicle was worked on five times prior to purchase and three out of those five times or relative to the transmission being worked on, so the dealership sold me this new vehicle in bad faith.

I have a 16 limited I can see what people are talking about but the jerking of the vehicle after you put it into gear , haven’t had any real issues yet but reading this stuff worries me a bit. I owe 14 more thousand on my car just got it, 3 weeks ago hopefully this doesn’t happen. It kind of sounds like the Hyundai genesis and there faulty 8 speed transmissions. If I have further issues I’d like to have someone I can reach out to for any type of legal help in regards to owning a car with recalls .

I bought a 2015 Chrysler 200 S two weeks ago today with 67,000 miles. I am having the same issues that I am reading about, shifting hard and jerking from 2nd to 3rd and accelerating when I am coasting to a stop. Scheduled to take into dealer I purchased it from on Tuesday, expecting to hear there is nothing wrong with it. And then I will be contacting the lawyer in my state.

I bought my 2015 Jeep Cherokee in March of 2016. It had 14k miles on it. It did ok for the first year, aside from some not-so-smooth shifting. Then almost exactly a year later, when driving on the interstate, at approximately 65mph, the “service transmission” light came on as well as the engine light. At first I didn’t notice the car running different. Then I slowed down to exit………….when I tried to accelerate again, I had ZERO power. Foot to the floor and nothing…not even revving of the engine. I was able to pull over and put it into park. Once in park the “service transmission” went off, but engine light stayed on. Then I put it into drive and it did fine…..in town. But once back on the interstate, I hit 60mph and “service transmission” came back on.
I did some research and came across a recall for 2014-2015 Jeeps for the 9 speed transmissions with all the same symptoms. It said those affected could go to a Jeep dealer and get a software update to fix the issue, for free. I called them. I gave them my VIN #. I was told that MY 2015 Jeep wasn’t part of the recall. Even though I have the same issues. I would have to pay for the update.
This problem came and went over the next 2 months while I researched furthur. It came time for an oil change and my husband changed the oil & filter along with the air filter.
After that, it seemed to magically stop. It didn’t do it again for a whole year.
Fast forward to Monday of this week (4/15/2019). Driving down the interstate I hit 60mph and it started it all over again.
This is super frustrating.

We purchased our 2015 Chrysler 200 back in January for my husbands work vehicle. The past 3 weeks (maybe longer) we have had similar issues. It stalls while driving where the dash will state put car in Park to restart (nothing else comes on dash). On a good day it will restart right away and bad days it takes longer, sometimes as if it has completely died. Now the check engine light , traction control and and another light that has to do with the Throttle body comes on. Today the car once again stalled and when I got it restarted it would not go over 30mph. The car only has 53k miles and I find it hard to believe the Throttle body is bad or now possibly the Transmission.
I have seen where there has been numerous recalls on this type of vehicle and wonder if the car was ever taken in for repair. When checking the database it says there is no recall on this car. I guess my question is if the repair has been completed and the same issues are happening will Chrysler continue to fix the issue. As people have stated these vehicles are extremely dangerous and I fear someone will end up dying.

2015 200S 75,000 miles service transmission code appeared then check engine light went away within 2 hours brought to Chrysler they couldn’t find a code ???

OMGoodness! I can’t believe what I’ve read here. Today I was told transmission replacement required (second one) in my 200C. Suffice it to say I will NOT be buying another transmission for the car and I only hope I can find a way further shed light on this situation.
No, I didn’t read all these comments, but has anyone had any success in getting Chrysler to own up to this issue?
Again, $7400 for a new trans. After it was replaced at 21K miles. Granted, now I’m at 155K. Yes, high mileage commuter. But easy driving in the metro DC area. Shouldn’t be replacing again!
So disgruntled. So sad. Had I only known. Chrysler should be ashamed!

bought 2015 certified preowned chrysler 200C AWD–Only 44,000 miles on it and the transmission light comes on-trouble shifting out of 3rd the whole way to the dealer. After second try at the dealer and ACTIVE code was found and they are replacing the valve body. Fingers crossed, hope it works. I have had no problem for three years owning this vehicle and I love that it is fully loaded with every convenience that is made-but really–WHO needs 9 gears? Chrysler should get real with this transmission and stay with the tried and true of the line they have.

Same car, same story. 2016 Chrysler 200 Limited. During the test drive, I noticed that the car did not pull off quickly and the salesman told me it was the “eco-system” that the car has to save gas. It’s been a whole month now and it has worsen to the point where I’m concerned. I have to put too much effort into getting across an intersection. While accelerating, the car does a small jerk when changing gears. Clear signs that the transmission is about to go. Sad thing is, these are the exact symptoms my previous car (2005 Honda Accord) was having right before the transmission blew. This is my 4th car within 5 years, all have broken down on me. Reading sooo many stories about this car has made me decide not to drive it anymore because my last car stalled on me while I was driving and it was a traumatic experience that I do not want to experience again. I feel like the manufacturers and dealerships are just playing with people’s lives and livelihoods. It’s not right!

My son bought his 2015 200s AWD in December of 2019. Loves the car until day 3 when driving down the road the Service Transmission and Service parking brake light s go on then it down shifts to like 1st gear “limp mode” he pulls over, it wont go into park, puts parking brake on. He then turns the key off, tries to start it even though it’s in gear still with the and it starts. (even this is weird since most cars wont start unless in park or neutral.) but won’t move after releasing the parking brake. Called a wrecker took it back to the Chrysler dealer where it was purchased. They kept it for a few days said they changed the TCM and we were good. well was back to a nice car until March 2020. Did it again, had it towed and back to the dealer, they said they tightened a number of grounds and it was fixed. worked great until 1/7/2021. It did it again, figured Chrysler dealer couldn’t fix it so took it to our normal place, they had it for a week and could not get it to act up. We are worried that one of these times he won’t get pulled over fast enough and get rear ended. When it works it a wonderful car, but when your safety is at risk and you never know when it’s going to happen it’s scary. Has anyone got the remedy to this?

Hello everyone. I got my 2015 Chrysler 200 from the dealership today. I bought it used but I also bought it from a trust local dealership here and town that I know wouldn’t intentionally sell me something if they knew there was an issue, or they’d at least disclose that information prior to selling it to me. Nonetheless, while I was driving today the car randomly got stuck in 4th gear and wouldn’t allow me to up or downshift. I even attempted using the paddle shifters for what it’s worth and still nothing. I pulled over, put it in park, and tried putting it in gear but still nothing. I then tried turning the car off and back on, and still nothing but the display message of “performance shifting unavailable”. Although it wasn’t ideal, the car was still drivable so I fished my commute home and got it in the driveway where I repeated the same process except this time, the car turned back on and displayed no message. I pulled out and took it for a drive up my street and it shifted completely normally. Note, my check engine light also came on when this problem occurred, but there’s no pattern to this issue whatsoever. This has happened twice now and both times it’s happened in the 35-45 mph range but I’m not sure if that particularly has anything to do with it. This is already growing to be a very frustrating issue and I was wondering if anyone else has experienced anything similar whatsoever? Thanks!

I’ve had my car for a little over 5 years and have been going through the exact same thing. Today my car completely stopped and wouldn’t move within seconds a “service transmission” alert popped up. For months I’ve been getting the car checked, it was placed on the computer system several times nothing ever came up. I was told repeatedly there is nothing wrong with the car and now this. These cars are horrible and should not be allowed to be sold!
