2007 Chrysler 300 Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 17,776 miles


My Chrysler 300 is 1.5 years old with less than 18,000 miles on it. It has been in the repair shop (dealership) twice for major problems. This latest one is life-threatening. The engine suddenly just stops. The car immediately looses power and coasts to a stop. No warning. The engine dies and steering becomes very difficult. I just spoke to the service rep and he says they can't find anything wrong because the engine light doesn't come on. This car is a real hazard and could potentially cause a serious accident. I've filed a complaint with the Chrysler corporation but have not heard back from them. I will never buy another Chrysler product.

300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles
Chrysler 300 6 cylinder auto-transmission (2007) when driving the speed limit in my neighborhood 25 mph. The car will shift between two gears back and forth causing a hopping sensation. Also on cold take off when the transmission shifts from 1st to 2cd gear, it jumps hard into 2 cd and jumps a couple of times. It does this occasionally at other speeds and other circumstances but is most noticeable as mentioned. Dealer check says everything is fine. After checking by dealer, the problem still exists and is seemingly getting worse.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler 300. The vehicle was purchased on February 11, 2007 and the malfunction light remained illuminated for two days. On February 17, 2007 and February 22, 2007, the vehicle began to shake while being parked. The owner called carmax and made an appointment to have the vehicle diagnosed. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. While driving 50 mph and greater, the vehicle's shaking intensified. A forensic expert with daimler Chrysler stated that two brains were defective in the vehicle and both were replaced. After the repairs were performed, the shaking worsened. On May 7, 2007, the vehicle was towed to carmax where it currently remains. The current mileage is 2,600 and failure mileage was 8. the consumer stated vehicle makes popping sound when shifting gears and check engine light illuminated and then went off. Updated 06/07/07
