Chrysler Problems

PCM/TCM Software Updates May Address Shifting Problems

If you experience rough shift and/or shuddering during gear shifting, software updates to the powertrain control and transmission control modules (PCM and TCM) are available which may address these problems.

Shifting Harshness and Shuddering Issue

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.

Instrument cluster failure

Instrument cluster periodically failed. No speedo, gas gauge, tach, temp. gauge,etc.(had this same problem with 1995, and 1998 models of chrysler/dodge minivans, the 1999 would 'correct' if I hit the dash board just right, the others would not-I would just drive them without the gauges and eventually they would come back on).

Chrysler Reviews

We bought this 2003 PT Cruiser from a Dealership in another state. I'm surprise we made it home and was able to drive it for almost a month before we started having all the problems we've had. One day it just wouldn't started. Took it to our mechanic and they check it and said it was the starter. So we put a new starter in and then about a week later it wouldn't start again, so back it went to ...

It is a marvelous car when it works and a dragon when its not. Current book I think, about 3500. At that, its worth more to me to play the odds and hope for the best. In the time I have owned it the brakes leaked once and needed to re hosed. 390 dollars Th...

Car is fun to drive, comfortable and opening/closing the top is fully automatic and takes about 30 seconds. If you buy one, find ...
