The Latitude offers heated fronts seats to the mix, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and integrated audio controls. A power sunroof is available as an option. Driving with or without the air conditioning on for a period of time of a speed of 60. If so, that could allow fuel to leak during a crash or a roll-over accident,….
Handling is unimpressive, the seats are second-rate and the driving position is flawed. Concerned about the inability to accelerate as problem occurs on highway- sudden drop in speed poses a danger. The vehicle was taken to the dealer to be diagnosed. Something electrical inside the mirror caused enough heat for the mirror to melt and go on fire. Problem appears intermittent when ambient temperature is over 80 degrees fahrenheit.
Dangerous shift to low-power mode making vehicle incapable of maintaining speed. My purpose now is to notify the incredibly bad customer service and interest the Chrysler corp took regarding this incident. The other wire goes to a 12 volt source. I have had 2 recalls, in which have not been fixed due to lack of parts. This started as a minor annoyance and now I cannot drive my car.
Not sure if this is a brake, engine, transmission, computer, air bag, or a combination problem. It was the electronic throttle control light. Dont want to wait till rear endeded. I was in the middle of accelerating onto an interstate, which could have been fatal. The issues starting in April 2015, with 35000 miles on the car.
That would be the addition of a six-speed automatic transmission in the 2014 Patriot and 2014 Compass. While driving 75 mph, the automatic transmission warning indicator illuminated and the vehicle independently shifted from high gear to a lower gear. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000. I am more than pissed right now. Leather seating is optional, though this might be the only real luxury for the interior it provides.
I continue to follow his advice and the Compass was dead on. The car has 76k miles and I would not expect this to happen to a relatively gently used car still under warranty. Now the dealer refuses to help. From the seats to the air to the sunroof to the radio to the trunk. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated that an investigator would be sent out, but no one showed up. Posted on Aug 10, 2009 post symptoms.
The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's air bags with 15 problems. The engine is noisy, lacks punch and the continuously variable transmission accentuates its unpleasant growl. The vehicle was driven to the dealer, but they could not duplicate the failure. The contact turned the vehicle off and back on; however, the failure recurred. I bought this car from a dealership 3 months ago and it had 41,000 miles on it.
Offering the best of both worlds, the Compass serves as an ideal family vehicle, getting pretty good fuel economy and tight maneuvering in city traffic, though it has some towing capacity as well and can be used for various chores that are reserved for trucks, all at a relatively reasonable cost compared to others in its class. Chrysler's number for this recall is S61. Star Star No-Star No-Star No-Star A crossover sport utility vehicle built on a car-based platform, the offers three trim levels all featuring various features which set them apart. The engine is noisy, lacks punch and the continuously variable transmission accentuates its unpleasant growl. The failure mileage was approximately 38,000.
The fire department was called, but before they arrived, there was a loud explosion and the vehicle became momentarily engulfed in flames. I have to pull over cut vehicle off. At that time knew I had to get car stopped without hurting anyone, so there was a wooded area behind bank, I ran car into area that had huge rocks which I ran over and therefore hit a tree head on to stop my car. The vehicle was taken to the dealer to be diagnosed. You would have to coast to the shoulder and sit there for 20 minutes for the car to cool down. The other dealer replaced the cvt transmission last summer under warranty.
