Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Gear shift will not shift out of park. I believe my vehicle is having the same issue as the K39 recall however because of my build date of 02/07/07, the recall only applies to vehicles built 6/25/07-9/21/07.

My 2007 Chrysler 300 will not shift from park, I contacted my local dealer and was told this was a problem with some 300 but I needed to contact Chrysler customer service, I called Chrysler and was told my VIN is not listed in the K39 safety notification, they can't help me out. I had to have my car towed to a local mechanic and repair made. How can Chrysler fixs some failures and not other?

Shift park lock mechanism - cannot shift out of park. It appears that my "shift interlock latch" has malfunctioned (via online research). It also appears that this is an issue that Chrysler is aware of, but will not fix under a recall. Anyway, as it currently stands I'm trying to get an appointment with the dealer to fix. Thank goodness the car was at home when this occurred.

Drove car all morning long, stopped at a family members house for a few hours. Came out to car to leave and car was stuck in park, checked to make sure all brake lights were working incase brake pedal sensor was bad(all lights came on) checks brake fluid (up to level) googled Chrysler 300 stuck in park and had an overflow of answers and videos showing me what was wrong and how to atleast get it out of park to get home/to a garage(Sunday noone was open). I saw this is a recall on the 300 models from 05-up to 08 I think. I called Chrysler recall center to be told that yes my car is in the right year frame but it is uncovered due to it is not a mopar part or because it was manufactured in Sep 2006. So I am a bit upset at this because the exact thing that is on a recall happened to my 2007 Chrysler 300 but is uncovered.

Car won't come out of park to drive. The lever inside is broke. Dealer says it's not just the lever it's the whole sifter transfer case.

Heard loud noise when nearing home. Was inside home park. Car seemed okay so continued couple blocks to driveway. Pulled into driveway and saw some smoke coming out of hood. Had my son look under hood to find cooling fans come apart. Visible damage to radiator. Called dealer and they towed car to their facility. Manager called this morning to verify damage, had extended warranty coverage but they would not fully cover cost from Chrysler repair department, difference of about $350. I feel that this a cost that Chrysler should absorb as I feel that it was defect of Chrysler components.

Shift park lock mechanism - we are just get this problem and call Chrysler they refuse to fix the problem. They had recall K36 and K16. A lot of these problem online but people fix by them self. Some of the get pay a lot money to fix this issue. I think this is flaws that Chrysler should recall to fix all the car. Happen around from 50,000 miles. Hope official will get Chrysler send letter out to fix all. I won't buy Chrysler again.

Vehicle wouldn't come out of park. Went online and found out about the pink thingies. The override one did not work. Was able to press the other one in and got it into reverse and it was stuck there. Just happened to also manually press the shift cable into place (after 2 hours) and was able to get it into drive. According to the service station, they have this replacement part in stock because it breaks so often. And according to Chrysler our vehicle is not under the recall (only "some" are), and they would notate our dissatisfaction (they know and admit that this breaks often, but won't fix it on "all" effected vehicles). Thankfully it did this after we came back from the holiday weekend.

Check engine light on. 2007 Chrysler 300 touring with 45000 miles. P1004 code. Known problem from Chrysler. Tsb issued. Georgia emissions will not pass with engine light on. New cars (three years) exempt from emissions. Next year first time for testing and car will not pass until I pay Chrysler $2000 to fix problem. Great idea to bail them out. Buy american. Ha,
