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.

2006 Chrysler 300C Owner Comments

problem #3

May 052014


  • 66,430 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler 300C. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled multiple times. The oil sensor light also illuminated each time the vehicle stalled. The oil was changed twice by a local mechanic and the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who was unable to replicate nor diagnose the failure. The contact was unable to pass an inspection due to the vehicle having a fractured passenger side tie rod. An authorized dealer diagnosed and repaired the right tie rod. The vehicle was scheduled to be inspected and repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 66,430.

  • 92,000 miles
On June 11, 2009 I went in to have tires put on my 2006 Chrysler 300 at southern tire, lexington park, Maryland. The mechanic called me to inform me that the inner tie rods needed to be replaced prior to putting tires on the vehicle, and that he had called the local dealership, park Dodge, Chrysler Jeep and was told that the part was on back order for 6 months and there was a total of 3,123 on back order. I went to the dealership myself the same evening after speaking with the parts manager by phone and ordered the part ( P/N 68028831ac) but was told the same thing. He informed me that I should call the customer care line at Chrysler for further assistance. I called the customer care line that evening to express my concerns and was told that because of the state of Chrysler I should understand. I expressed to ask a customer to wait 6 months for a part was unreasonable. I was told to give them 48 hours to make a decision as to how to help me and some one would contact me. On June 12th I arrived home and there was a message on my answering machine stating that Chrysler would not be able to assist me with a rental or loaner car because my car is out of warranty (92,000 miles). I called the customer care center and asked to speak with a supervisor. The supervisor informed me that they would have to contact the dealership and that she would call me back the next working day. I received no call. I continued to call around and go onto the internet in search of the part and to no avail it was not found. Chrysler has told me it is on national back order and they are working to get the part as soon as they can but there is nothing they can do for me. I drive almost 150 miles a day to work. My front tires are getting very bad and the left one is "coupling" according to the mechanic. I don't feel safe in the vehicle. Why are there so many parts on backorder and none in the country if this is not an issue with this make and model vehicle?
