Okay, I live in Texas - so shouldn't have a problem with it freezin; however, we just bought a used 2009 Aspen Hybrid with just under 30K miles last month and coming home off the highway tonight I started smelling something strange like a Sharpie marker - so thinkin electrical or maybe the brakes? I bought an extra warranty package on it, but scared this dealer doesn't know how to deal with hybrids? Trying to find a forum on the cause of this - I am scared to drive it now!

They said they had to replace a TCIM (?) part but Chrysler didn't have it so they had to build it. It took over two months. It would have cost me $7000.00 for the part alone. Glad I have warranty. As it turns out, that isn't the problem. That was 3 months ago. Engine light still comes on when going from electric to gas. Dropped it off three days ago. They think its another broken wire but aren't sure yet. That is over 10 broken wires they found in a year.
Chrylser piece of junk. Brother bought the Tahoe Hybrid, no problems. Might have to sell it and buy a real vehicle.

I think my problem is the dealership. Had it for 3 days. Said it had 9 codes in, erased them and gave it back. Told me there was nothing wrong with it. Three days! I drove it for 1 hour got the engine light on again.
Williams Chrysler in Fort McMurray.
There is a boycott site for them on facebook.
"Boycott Williams Chrysler"
Taking it to Edmonton, will see if they can fix it.
Found out today from the Edmonton Dealership that the $7000 part (TPIM) was poorly made and they had to redisign it, which is why it took so long to replace.

We own a 09 Chrysler Aspen Hybrid. Last Thursday is just stopped running. We towed it to the dealer and they have been trying to figure out how to fix it for a week. Today they tell us it needs the transmission replaced. It only has 65,000 miles. We are the second owners, so it is not covered under warranty. Do you have any advice for us?
