2015 Chrysler 300 - Gearshift lockup

driving 40 miles per hour pushed on gas car stopped running. then it started up again. two weeks later I parked the car and when I started it up and put in in drive the car just jerked I turned the car off walked home when back to the after 2 hours and started up in drive. ( I called the dealer said it was a gear shift lockup but no recall)

Stuff breaks, there is not a recall issued for every little problem.

The dealer’s shop is referring to the neutral safety switch, which is supposed to prevent starting the car in gear. Recalls involve safety/emissions and are only issued (grudgingly) when a large number of vehicles are involved.
