Chrysler 200 Stalling Problem — Lemon Law Defect Alert

October 25, 2012 By: LemonLaw Category: Car Lemon Law, Check Engine Light, Chrysler

Is your Chrysler 200 stalling?  You are not alone.  We are seeing many issues regarding Chrysler 200 vehicles stalling on highways and carcomplaints.com has listed the 2011 Chrysler 200 engine problem as “pretty bad.”

Chrysler 200 drivers on the website complain of the engine shutting down with no notice, along with the check engine light coming on, and the electrical system (navigation system and radio) shutting down.  People are having to literally put their car in park and restart their ignition in the middle of the road to get the car moving again.  And what’s even more upsetting is that Chrysler service advisers are not always able to locate and diagnose the problem being that it is intermittent.

If you suspect that your Chrysler 200 is losing power, or your car is shutting down, it is essential that you get your vehicle to a Chrysler authorized dealer as soon as possible to have the matter addressed.  Be as specific as possible in terms of when the car stalled and how fast you were going.  Tell the adviser how you were able to restart the car  and whether you experienced a loss of power following the restart or if the car was riding differently.  And make sure that you ALWAYS receive a repair invoice when picking up the car which illustrates the date in, date out, mileage, the complaint and the fix.

If your Chrysler 200 stalling problem continues, you need to speak with a Lemon Law lawyer about your rights.  The Lemon Laws in certain states, including New Jersey and Ohio, only give manufacturers one chance to fix a problem which could cause death or serious bodily harm.  We have successfully resolved Lemon Law claims based on this one-time rule.

This is a not a problem that should be taken lightly.  If you have any questions regarding your Chrysler 200 stalling, feel free to call us at 1 -800 LEMON LAW. We will be glad to discuss your situation with you and put you in touch with someone who can help.

    Hi my chryler 200 has stalled out on me numerous times. As soon as the dealership said they fixed it I continuosly have the same problem and the dealership can not figure out what exactly is wrong with it every time I take it up there for stalling they tell me its a different problem. I have a 2012 chryler 200 49000 out of warranty I bought the car in Florida but I am active duty Army now stationed in Texas

      My 2011 Chrysler 200 started having stalling issues right after I purchased the lifetime extended warranty at 46,000 miles. First off, the Chrysler dealership replaced the fuel tank stating that over filling was causing the issue. The next week, the car stalled again, with the check engine light on. They checked and it was a misfire diagnosis, but they could not replicate the issue. The car just stalled again today, and was lurching forward so bad that I had to pull out of traffic; the check engine light was blinking, and the chime was ringing, and of course both went away as I drove it to the dealership for the third time in as many months.

              2013 Chrysler 200. 17000 miles. Stalled (completely died) twice Sunday night. Dealer can’t find cause. I feel it is unsafe to drive even if dealer says it is fixed. Wife commutes thru heavy traffic in Minneapolis area

                I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 s series just under 43k miles.I was driving it down the road and it stalled in an intersection. Thank god there wasn’t a accident.Chrysler needs to take control of this situation before they have a major lawsuit on their hands.My wife is 5 months pregnant and it stalled on her going down the road when raining and no accident then either. If she gets into an accident and gets hurt while pregnant Chrysler is going to have a big problem!!!!!!

                      Hi! purchased a 2013 Chrysler in Dec of 2012. everything was all fine and dandy until it stalled on me for the first time in July 2016 (driving past intersection, tachometer went to 0, brakes locked, steering wheel locked), towed the car home that night. I was leaving to Vegas the following weekend so I took my car in and no codes showed up so they sent me home. months later, in September, my car stalled on a Sunday, same situation, and I took the car in the next day. they had my car the whole week and a half and fixed a cylinder in my engine and an almost blown head gasket. that following sunday my car stalls again while parked this time. I couldn’t start it but I had droven it 15 minutes prior. Tuesday I took it to the shop and no codes appeared so they sent me home, again. the following Friday, my car stalls in the middle of the freeway, I get it towed and now my car is in the shop for I don’t know how long! im currently looking at Hondas.

                              my 2016 Chrysler 200 has been shutting off and I have been able to restart it until today, it won’t turn back on. I had it towed to a dealership and they say my warranty won’t cover it because I have 62000 miles, and warranty expires at 60000 miles. the thing is I had the same problem last year and I took it to the dealership before my warranty was up and i thought it was fixed but it started happening again this week and now it just won’t turn on. I don’t know what to do

                              I had an accident in my Chrysler 200 2015 in December 2017 and the Insurance said it was fixable even though we all thought it was not. Eventually, after receiving the vehicle back it has been stalling and shutting off in the middle of the road which I think is life threatening. I took it back to the repair shop 5-6 times so far and just got a message from the repair shop saying since they can’t locate the problem I will have to figure it out with the insurance company. It’s dragging on and I can’t risk my life on the road when it’s the only car I have. Please assist.

                              I have a 2011 Chrysler 200 and it’s been shutting off on me with no warning! I think this is very dangerous! It’s my only transportation to get my grandson to school and myself to work! I don’t have money to even attempt to see what’s even wrong with it! I don’t know what to do!
                              What can I do about this!? Does anyone know if Chrysler will pay to get you out of your car and into a new one? I think it would be alot cheaper than being sued if the car shuts off and causes a bad accident!
                              Someone help please!!

                              My sister has the Chrysler 200 and it shuts off while driving which leaves the steering wheel stiff and hard to turn. It happens maybe 2,3 times a week. The dealership told her it’s an oil change reminder. I’m not an idiot nor some kind of mechanic why would a manufacturer set the vehicle to turn off at all. She still has 25% oil life left as we speak. This is unacceptable and it puts her life in danger. I will speak to the dealership and contact Chrysler directly and get this issue resolved. If not I will file legal action. They know about the problem and do not accept responsibility.

                              My best friend owns a 2015 Chrysler 200. It has 76000 miles on it, in the last three days it’s shut off on its own while driving three different times. Multiple tows and trips to the mechanic has come to no solution to the problem, nobody can find out why it happens. It’s really getting expensive and just frightening for her and I wanted to see if there’s anything that can be done. She’s terrified to drive the car she spent so much money on and it just doesn’t seem right that Chrysler won’t do anything about it. Anything we can do?

                              Issue started a month ago and is still not fixed. Cleaned throttle body, and when that didn’t resolve the issue they replaced throttle body. Car still stalls at random times, both while moving and waiting at lights. Almost been in several accidents. All loss of power steering and control of the car. Last week the engine started shaking as soon as I turned the car on. I tried to restart the car, it would not start, and instead rolled backwards into the street. Luckily there was enough room for cars to go around me. Eventually I was able to start the car long enough to get it out of the street.

                              I have a 2015 Chrysler 200 which I bought about a year ago. Just about a week ago my car stalled going to the store I thought it did because it was really cold that morning. I went start up and it made a weird noise but it started.i went to store and back home.i have driven a couple times until last more it stalled 3 times! I was glad I was just on a regular 25 mph side street. I read the next day about all the recalls.i called Chrysler corp. They said I wasn’t under the recall but judging by all the symptoms of all the other cars I read about it seems it has the same problem..and when it stalled no warning lights, engine lights or any lights on dashboard to possibly tell me what’s going on..and Chrysler didn’t really try to help me besides telling me to take to dealer ( which I have too, and they will charge 105$ an hour to find the problem..i seriously believe its the same as the others because of the same circumstances…what should I do..cant really afford to fix

                                I have had my Chrysler 200 2016 for almost three years. Every since I got the vehicle the car has been jerking feeling like transmissions issues. The car cuts off while driving in traffic. I was coming from New York and the car shut off while going into he tunnel. I have taken the car back multiple times and there is never a solution. I took it to the dealership on 2/13/2019 and they told me I needed an oil change even though not lights on indicators came on stated I did and I still had 35% oil life left. I let them change the oil and then the car cut off two days later. I took it back now they are saying they updated the transmission one day later but stated there were no updates both times I dropped the car off.

I bought my car, a brand new 2016 Chrysler 200 in Dec 2015. It has stalled on me several times, with a little over 53,000 miles. I have taken it to 3 different dealerships and have updates done, a new battery and it continues to happen. At this point I dont know what to do, Im not done paying for the car.

Did some research as to why it just stalled and read all the other stories. Why isn’t Chrysler addressing this issue are they waiting for someone to die. There needs to be a recall.

                                  In January 4, 2019, I purchased my 2013 Chrysler 200. I have only had it for just about 6 months. I brought it used with 175,000 miles, the dealer assured me it was in good working condition and it passed inspection. It has 181,000 miles at present. After 30 days I replaced my radiator hose and it broke apart. I have also changed 3 thermosats. My brake lights would not cut off. Within the same 24 hours my car overheated after changing the hose and thermostats. Then after about 1 week, the car overheated again. We got everything checked and nothing was wrong. Now the car will not start until I let it sit for about approximately 20-30 min. or longer in some cases. The starter was checked and it was good, we decided to change the battery. After changing the battery, I am still having problems with my car not starting. It is my primary means of transportation to work. When I having driven for about 15 minutes to my destination, when I get back into the car after about 20 min. it will not start. My coolant sounds like it is boiling when I stop. The dealer will not help me and I am still paying on a car that I can not drive safely. No one seems to know what the problem is. I am having to use Uber because I am afraid it will stop in heavy traffic. Please help.

                                  Our 2017 Chrysler 200 stalled as I was coming to a stop at a light. Frightening, but now I worry about it stalling while on the freeway, which I’m on every day several times! I was able to start it again, but it stalled a 2nd time right after that (at another red light). Of course when I took it to a shop, they found nothing. There was no warning. It is my family’s only car and my husband and I both rely on it to get to work, so we are just taking the risk every day. Still paying on it, too.

Just a message stating to “shift to park to start car” oil had just been changed too. DEATH MACHINE

                                  I have a 2016 Chrysler 200 that I’ Had for almost 2 years. A few months ago it started to cut off with no warning. I had it checked several times and they couldn’t find a problem. The car wasn’t giving any codes. Well It is still shutting down. The dealership said I needed a oil change. That’s crazy. I’m afraid to drive it. Would someone please give me some information on what I can do. I still have a car note.

                                  I purchased a 2013 Chrysler 200 two and a half months ago. I test drive the car before purchase and drive it the hour ride home. I drove it to work twice before the engine stalled on me for the 1st time. It has stalled several times in traffic. Had the fuel pump replaced, and drove it around near my home before getting back on the highway in it. As soon as I attempted to drive it a distance on the highway, the engine stalled while I was driving 60 mph. The check engine came on and there was a clicking sound under the hood as I attempted to restart the car. My aunt had to give me a jumpstart. The checvk engine light went off, and it began to drive as normal. It has to be against the law for this to be ok. It’s dangerous and unpredictable!

                                  I have a 2011 200 series, shuts down while driving if I adjust or turn off the heat or defroster. This has happened driving on the highway and parking. I’ll park the car, so it’s now a low idle – just stalls out !!!
                                  Been to the dealer, they’ve done a computer update but with no change. This car is so dangerous and unreliable now!

                                  I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 it started to stall a couple of months ago sometimes I was stranded on an interstate and had to get it towed. I was told by the mechanic that I had to take it to the dealership, so I did. They fixed my recalls, and it worked until a couple of days ago. Now it stalls all the time, and now I it doesn’t warn me that it is about to stall. There are no engine lights or codes popping up on the dash.

                                  I have a 2015 200 and mine just started doing this in the last few months. It always happens on a cold start like the first one of the day or after the car has been sitting for awhile. I would say this has happened pretty much every other day. I have to put the car in break and restart it. It happened to me today in the middle of a busy intersection her in Key West and I had to try twice to get it to start. This is a pretty serious issue that Chrysler seems to just smirk at. It’s sad cause this car has been outstanding for me up until this happens and it’s a very dangerous issue to have like I said my car stalled in the middle of a 4 lane intersection in the city.

                                  I WAS DRIVING 70 miles on highway and gas peddle just stopped working pulled over restarted car and made it home, and if I could not have been able to pull to SIDE of road I would have been hit and maybe killed had oil changed and battery checked go next week to dealership to see what they say. The dealership I bought car from went out of business.
                                  Car also going 20 miles totalled stopped and told me to step on brake and put in drive this happened before 70 mile issue. I still owe a lot of money on this car what can I do? Scarred to drive car.
