2006 Chrysler Pacifica - 2A8GF68486R- Ilion, NY: August 24th, 2012
Engine mount broke. Had it fixed and 3 weeks later it happened again. Just bought the vehicle from carbone auto less than a year ago. I'm not rich and i just want a car i can drive. I cant keep replacing these. Carbone auto knows the kind of vehicle they sold me and i trusted them. They seem like they don't care when i go there and they just say make an appointment. I cant keep taking time off for this on a whim. They sell you a car and don't care. Chrysler took our money in a bailout,at least they can do is care about their customers. New or used vehicle.


2008 Chrysler Pt Cruiser - 3ABFY48B08T- Mcdonough, GA: August 23rd, 2012
The car tends to stall when driving in excess of 50, it will jerk a couple of times before going forward. It has been doing this for two weeks, i bought this car about a month ago. When going online to see if others were having this problem, i found it to be a common problem with people seeking and trying all types of solutions. Even taking the car back to the dealership and still having the same stall and rough idling. It appears to be a defect in the manufacturing.


2007 Chrysler Town And Country - 1A4GJ45R27B- Redwood City, CA: August 23rd, 2012
Front courtesy lights have melted in their sockets and tail light is showing signs of starting to do the same. Turn signals have gone crazy: sometimes they work as they should, other times they don't work at all, at times you have to use the lever over and over again to get them to engage. The worse part is that at times if you choose the right, the left comes on. We feel both of these issues could potentially be very serious safety issues. They both seem to be electrical issues the lights could present a fire hazard and the turn signals could be the cause of an accident.

2003 Chrysler Sebring Coupe - 4C3AG52HX3E- Chula Vista, CA: August 14th, 2012
After picking up vehicle from dealer and reporting "slipping" on the transmission, the dealer told me the transmission was starting to break up. A new one would cost $7,000, and a refurbished one would be $5,500, and there was a waiting list. I decided to drive it home an explore other avenues. The vehicle lasted maybe five miles and it died on the freeway. The engine light came on, the engine started smoking, and the engine just died. I lifted the hood and the engine was smoking as the transmission had broken and it had been leaking its fluid on the freeway. I called a tow truck to tow it home. An independent transmission repair shop will charge me $1,800 to rebuilt it. I have no choice.
