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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Chrysler 300M Owner Comments

problem #2

300M 6-cyl

  • 17,508 miles


While driving the vehicle at 30 mph, I got a check engine light. The vehicle transmission would not shift to the next higher gear during acceleration. Note: This was also evident by an increase of engine RPM's on the tachometer. This vehicle was purchased new by myself in 2001. It has only 17,508 miles on it!. checking of the engine fault light revealed a P0601 trouble codei. This is an internal fault in the powertrain control module (PCM). I have seen similar problems noted by other 2001 Chrysler 300 M owners, upon conducting a search on the computer. Since this appears to be a common problem for this vehicle, I would like to know why there have not been any recalls!

2001 Chrysler 300M rack and pinion had to be replaced because the rack broke. The brakes failed and the car accelerated out of control, due to a failure in the vacuum system.
