My 2005 Chrysler 300 limited with 41,000 miles has had numerous problems. The latest problem is with the keyless remote entry keyfobs. Both fobs now do not work. The control panel indicated the battery was low. After replacing the battery, the panel still indicated the battery was low. After opening the spare fob to replace its battery, found the housing that holds the battery had completely separated from the circuit board. Took the car back to the original dealership, where all the other problems have been dealt with. The dealership told me since my car was now out of warranty (the car is only a little over 2 years old), I would have to pay $311 for two new key fobs and programming. In the meantime, I am dealing with locking the car, and then unlocking it through the door, letting the horn sound and the lights flash, looking as if I am stealing my own car until I can drop all my packages in my hand and get in behind the wheel and insert the key into the ignition. Other problems, after 15,000 miles, the Continental self sealing tires had to be replaced. Fight for this problem with Continental people! after numerous phone calls and faxes, Continental did replace the tires at a charge of $250 for four new tires. The navigation system on this car was replaced three times. The button which controls the view broke all three times. All the speakers have been replaced in the car. Since it is now out of warranty, they can't be replaced again. They sound awful and that is the way they have to stay until I can afford to upgrade my "premium" Chrysler stereo system with a premium system from an electronic store. The sunroof was not closing properly. Took it to the dealership before the warranty expired. They performed a "software update" and supposedly fixed the issue. Two weeks later, I took the car through a car wash and was flooded with water coming through the sunroof. Z

The car has been in repair shop 7 times for the air bag light being on. Dealer claimed air bag light was fixed. But as soon as the consumer left the dealership the light came back on. Dealership keeps putting the consumer on hold, and will not call back. If the steering wheel is tilted the air bag light comes on. Owner has had problems with the car since he bought it. Also, brakes have a been a problem, as well as the sun roof.

While making a left hand turn vehicle stalled. Consumer pulled over and restarted the vehicle. Dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem. Updated 12/14/2005. The sunroof shattered when the consumer closed his door. The dealer claimed this occurred because the glass was binding in the track. The headliner was coming down in the rear..
