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.
Headlight switches can fail, causing the headlights to intermittently stay in the on or off position. Repeatedly turning the switch on and off may temporarily fix the problem. Replacement of the switch is needed to resolve this issue.
If the door lock actuators (integrated into the door latch assembly) are noisy and/or not working, the latch should be replaced. For some model years, the actuator for the sliding door is available separately from the latch.
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.
An oil leak from the oil filter adapter may be evident. Chrysler has made a revised oil filter adapter is available.
A failing head lamp switch can cause the head lamps and/or instrument cluster lighting to flicker or dim. The head lamp switch should have a noticeable click between each position; a "mushy" feel is a strong indication of a failing switch.
There have been reports of excess oil consumption due to oil burning in the combustion chamber. This can be occurring even without the traditional blue oil smoke noted from the tail pipe. In some cases this oil consumption is due to problems with the PCV system. It is recommend a complete inspection of the PVC system, including this oil baffle inside the valve cover, be performed if excess oil consumption is noted. According to the manufacturer, usage of 1quart of oil every 1,000 miles is acceptable.
