Chrysler recalls 26k cars due to transmission issue

Chrysler is back with another recall this year, this one concerning its new Chrysler 200 sedans specifically. The problem is a serious one, though arguably not as serious as whatever is causing Jeeps to catch on fire: a transmission problem could cause the car to roll away after it fails to properly shift into park. The auto maker says it has received five complaints from owners who could not get their cars to shift into park. The majority of the affected vehicles are located in the United States.

2015 Chrysler 300 first-drive – HEMI Hero

Brash, bold, and anything but banal: when it comes to "American Luxury", the Chrysler 300 epitomizes it perhaps better than anything else.

With drivers more mature, however, and expectations tougher than ever, the 2015 300 has a careful line to follow: the bruising attitude drivers lust after, paired with the cosseting they secretly covet. I cranked up the Beats Audio to find out if the new 300 is Kingpin or Klonopin.

Part of a restructuring plan that has already seen Fiat Chrysler list its own shares on the New York Stock Exchange, and acquiring the minority interest in Chrysler itself, according to company execs it's the "proper" way forward for the famous Italian marque.

Chrysler recalls 900k cars over fire, stalling risks

General Motors has been the big focus of this year's automotive recalls, but it seems Chrysler is looking towards becoming runner up, with the auto maker issuing two global recalls that span nearly a million vehicles. The reasons revolve around different problems, with one posing a fire risk and another potentially causing a spontaneous alternator failure, which could also result in a fire or possibly a car crash. Fortunately, no known injuries have resulted from the issues, though there is one known crash that might have been caused by a faulty part.
