Chrysler 200 Recalls
A failure of a key electrical connector in the power distribution center of the vehicle wiring may lead to the failure of electrical components, and result in the vehicle stalling without warning. Dealers will replace the affected connector or harness depending on the vehicle free of charge to resolve the concern.
522 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the engine may have abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings. The debris can result in premature wear and loss of engine oil pressure. As a result, the engine could stall unexpectedly or fail. Dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module to correct this concern.
Active head restraints are designed to move forward and upward as necessary in the event of a rear end collision. These vehicles are being recalled because an internal fault in the occupant restraint control module could cause the active head restraints not to function as expected, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module as necessary to correct this concern.
Chrysler 200 Reviews
I like this car - Only shortcomings are dealing with be brakes and slippage tranny into 1st gear. Other than love gas mileage the comfortable seats a very spacious cabin with import options in its class. Would recommend but before getting unless got the average model check under Consumer reports or Bulletin about a issue car has otherwise like this car not too many things that seem be a problem...
Wife is primary driver she loves her 200 Limited after she totaled her 2008 Sebring bought a 200 in March 2013. It is a great vehicle took 4 trips without no problems plus received good maintenance from Chrysler dealer no hassles. Overall I like the looks of the 200 more sporty and bit luxurious ever top of the line with Limited model.
this is the first car I ever bought new that has not required any warranty work of any kind. I have 21,000 miles on it and it is 15 months old. It also always gets better gas mileage constantly than the sticker says to expect. I have gotten as good as 34mpg on highway trips. It appears Chrysler went to work on fixing their problems. Hopefully they can stay in survival mode permanently.
