The Chrysler Aspen, a luxury full-size SUV, was based on the Dodge Durango SUV. It has a seating capacity of seven or eight with three rows. Its production started in 2006 and ended in December 2008. The Aspen offers imposing looks, a spacious interior, high performance, and ample towing capacity when properly equipped. At first, a standard 4.7L V8 delivering 235 horsepower and 300 pounds-per-foot of torque is the only engine available for the Aspen. Later, a 5.7L Hemi V8, which produced 335 horsepower along with 370 pounds-per-foot of torque became available. Both engines were equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available with the two engines. The wheelbase is offered at 119.2 inches, measures 200.8 inches in length, 76 inches in width, and 74.3 inches in height. The vehicle is offered in two trim levels: Base and Limited (with a starting price of $34,730). There is also a Limited HEV trim for the hybrid version. All three versions perform well in Ergonomics and storage capacity. Upscale touches include an available navigation system and available heated seats in the first two rows. Standard cloth upholstery can be upgraded to two-tone leather or a leather and suede combination. The Limited trim includes more higher-end parts and components, such as white LED interior lighting, an eight-speaker audio system with an iPod jack, and a healthy smattering of satin-silver and fake wood trim on the dash and door panels. It's noteworthy that the Aspen HEV hybrid can maximize fuel economy and remain in electric mode at low city speeds. It is powered by a 5.7L Hemi V8 engine combined with a Two-Mode Hybrid system. Thanks to Aspen's generational upgrades throughout the years, it provides drivers with a comfortable and pleasant driving experience.
The Chrysler Aspen has exhibited a series of steering-related issues that raise concerns about its safety and operability. A notable problem is the deformation of the airbag assembly clip on the steering wheel, which poses risks during collisions. The vehicle's design has allowed power steering lines to come into contact with the drivetrain, causing potential loss of steering control. Compounding these problems, the Aspen has instances where it unexpectedly shifts into 4-wheel drive, complicating steering maneuvers. The right steering knuckle flaw has necessitated recalls due to its potential to cause accidents. Further challenges include the illumination of the 4WD light without clear reason, difficulties in steering upon encountering road bumps, and malfunctions in the clock spring/steering sensor, which affects critical functions like the anti-lock brake, skid control, and all-wheel drive. Another alarming issue is the vehicle's propensity to spontaneously shut off after refueling, resulting in the sudden loss of power steering and electrical controls. There's also the sporadic and unexplained engagement of the 4WD, sometimes occurring even when the vehicle is switched off. Diving deeper into the steering wheel's control mechanisms, malfunctions often stem from a faulty clockspring, an essential component linking the electrical system to key functionalities such as the airbag, horn, and steering buttons. Symptoms of a malfunctioning clockspring range from an unresponsive horn to an illuminated airbag warning light. Over time, the steering wheel buttons may wear out, but this can often be mitigated using an electronic contact cleaner spray or by replacing the worn-out buttons altogether. On occasion, software glitches in the infotainment or onboard computer system can be the root cause, but a straightforward battery disconnect for about 15 minutes can reset the system. Vibrations in the steering wheel, another reported issue, have been linked to unbalanced wheels due to uneven tire wear or obstacles, misaligned wheels, subtle tire damage, bent rims from abrupt encounters with road impediments, and defective wheel bearings, which can amplify in noise as speed increases. Addressing these concerns promptly and seeking guidance from a professional mechanic is paramount to ensure vehicle safety and longevity.
