Chrysler is part of the “Big Three” automotive manufacturers in the United States. It was originally founded in 1925 by Walter Chrysler but merged with Fiat in 2014. Fiat also sells Dodge, Jeep, and Ram, which is why all brands could be seen being sold together in dealerships. Chrysler tends to focus on manufacturing minivan and sedan vehicles.
In a 2019 lawsuit settlement, Chrysler agreed to recall and repair around 100,000 vehicles that contained the V6 EcoDiesel engine because the engines did not meet fuel economy standards.
Among some of the complaints on Chrysler vehicles is that the 2nd Generation Chrysler 200’s speed transmission does not properly shift and ends up causing sudden shutdowns and unexpected shifting into the neutral gear.
Another complaint is that the aluminum valve stamps in the tire pressure monitors in the 2010 Town and Country are faulty, leading to the metal cap and other parts corroding easily. Perhaps the most unreliable Chrysler vehicle is the Sebring, which Chrysler has received over 1,500 complaints about, especially pertaining to the engine. According to the U.S. News, the Chrysler Sebring only rates 7.5 out of 10, based on an evaluation of the performance, interior, total cost of ownership, safety, and reliability.
