Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.
Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.
Shifting harshness and shuddering issues related to the operation of the automatic transmission have been addressed by factory service bulletins. The shuddering can feel like the vehicle is being driven over rumble strips.
It is not uncommon or the power window motor and/or regulator to fail. In most cases the door panel will require removal to determine the exact failure.

I have been driving Dodge,Chrysler vehicles for 45 years....this is the worst vehicle I have owned....replaced the tie rod ends before the warrenty expired; new brakes, rotors and claipers also at 40,000 (never replaced these items); now both oxygen sensors have had to be replaced at 49,565 miles. There has been a rumbling noise up front since it hit 30,000 miles, the dealer thought it was the tierods; huh! numerous garages....no one can identify the noise, it is annoying since I live on a country road and sounds like my wheels are going to fall off. Next vehicle......anything but a Chrysler/Dodge.
I will never buy another chrysler again
This is the second Chrysler product I've owned (first was a Dodge Grand Caravan). And for 3 years, I sold Chrysler products. I will never buy another Chrysler product as long as I live. This is a total piece of junk....premature brake wear out, replace the master cylinder, replaced the rack and pinion, power steering pump, power seat motors, electric sliding doors won't operate in the winter (IN TEXAS). All this at under 50K miles. I think I'll UPGRADE to Toyota. My Toyota has over 115K miles on it and has NEVER had any problems like the Chrysler. Bailouts should have only gone to companies that make reliable products, not junk like Chrysler.
Best vehicle I ever owned..80,000 miles and not even one small problem...guess thats unusual but true..
