    Chrysler Recalls 26k 200 Models For Nine-Speed Transmission Woes

      More bad news for the Chrysler nine-speed transmission

    Chrysler can't seem to catch a break with their nine-speed automatic. Case in point is a recall for around 26,000 Chrysler 200 models equipped with 3.6L V6 and nine-speed because the transmission will not go into park. According to a statement, the problem is due to inconsistent assembly procedures at a supplier's plant. At the time of this writing, five owners have experienced this problem.

    Dealers will inspect the transmission and replace if necessary. In the meantime, Chrysler is asking owners to put on the parking brake to prevent their vehicle from rolling back.

    Statement: Park Engagement

    February 26, 2015, Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is launching a recall of certain model-year 2015 cars to resolve manufacturing issues that may prevent the vehicles from shifting into park.

    Inconsistent assembly procedures at a supplier's plant have been linked to five reports involving customers who could not shift their vehicles into park. Without park, a vehicle may be subject to inadvertent movement.

    FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

    The campaign is limited to the Chrysler 200 equipped with a V-6 engine. There are an estimated 22,107 in the U.S.; 3,600 in Canada and 213 in Mexico.

    Customers will be advised when they may schedule service. FCA US dealers will inspect and, if required, replace transmissions at no charge. In the interim, customers who own models with V-6 engines are advised to activate the vehicle's parking brake before shutting off its engine, because the shifter may incorrectly indicate park is engaged.

    Customers with additional concerns may call 1-800-853-1403.

    Sad that this is what it has come too. Chrysler had such potential and yet Fiat seems to continue their trend of building low quality auto's and are now pushing it out across their full line of auto divisions.

    I don't think FIAT can do much to worsen Chrysler's already bad transmission reputation.

    We had exactly the same issue with the same ZF 9-speed on the TLX V6 models, however nothing more than a quick stop sale and Acura sent special engineers to every dealer nationwide to inspect and repair any of them. Something bolt or bracket related that they could check and fix quickly.


    I would venture to say it's the same thing here, just found out later. Should be an easy fix.
