I had exactly the same problem with my 2018 Challenger. The dealer did a firmware upgrade (curious why your dealer said there is no FW update) and said "If that doesn't fix it then we'll replace the unit." It sort of fixed it, in that the behavior changed. It didn't completely freeze up again, but within days it started acting like the touchscreen was either disconnected from the unit or was being ignored. I took it back again, they ordered a new unit, and it took almost three months for it to arrive. As soon as they got it swapped out I sold the car (for other reasons, but I had about zero confidence that the new unit would really be any better than the original one).
Yeah, for some reason there’s that ‘Jeep thing’, maybe it’s waving to each other on the road? My last Chrysler vehicle was in the 80’s, never been on my radar since.
Some people seem to have good luck with certain auto manufacturers while others do not. I have a good friend that always buys GM. I have yet to own a GM that was not troubled.
Basically the same story here... So many crazy thing just failed on that damn thing: Clock Spring (twice), Motor Mounts (three times!), Rear brakes (36k miles max), dumped thousands into the HVAC/Coolant system over the years; yet a/c worked maybe 1/2 its lifetime...
PT Cruiser(s) are POS honorable mention:
- Chrome clad wheels had a cool way of rusting from the inside out
- Cheap materials used in headlights would yellow WAY earlier than any other car I've ever owned
- Fog Lights broke in the on position ($$$ repair, forced to pass VA inspection)
- Burned thru brakes way too often for a vehicle of it's size/power (must have been undersized)
- ANY engine compartment work = PITA (no space)
Ha ha. I have a friend's who's wife had to have a Jeep. They bought her a 4 year old Wrangler four door. First year it's left her on the side of the road twice. She's finally realized it wasn't the way to go.
Same here. I love how my Tahoe drove but it was not reliable after 100K miles. Meanwhile at the same time my wife's Explorer was traded at 146K and never broke down once.....
Sometimes, you gotta roll the hard six
The fact that Chrysler still hasn't been able to improve quality is so frustrating - this has been a public black eye for them for years.
I am a die hard Toyota fan and have 3 of them right now but I am looking for a new SUV and the Toyota inventory is LOW.
I was starting to look at the Jeep Grand Cherokees again since there are more available and they've had this engine/trans combination out for a long time now and there is no reason the bugs shouldn't be worked out by now.
Started doing some research on them and it sounds like there is still all kinds of issues.
After reading this thread I will just wait for the inventory levels to stabilize and get another Toyota...
There's no doubt in my mind that the european control of these companies is detrimental to them. It's as if they are doing this on purpose to make it seem as their domestic products are better than the ones they are controlling.
Renault did everything in their power to destroy Nissan. Now Nissan is just told Renault to fuck off and doing as they wish, legalities be damned.
Eeewwww, don't touch it!
Here, poke at it with this stick.
I have had bad cars in many different manufacturers…and good ones too both foreign and domestic.
It’s really part luck of the draw…
If I get a problematic car/ truck…I trade it ASAP.
