problem #2

Dec 052006

300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,000 miles


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

Contact purchased a 2005 Chrysler 300 limited edition sedan on 7-27-05. He drove it home. The next day his wife parked vehicle in the parking lot where she worked. 30 minutes later, the manager of the building called contact wife's office informing her there was a car on fire in the parking lot. Flames came out of the engine block. The car was totally destroyed in less than 24 hours after purchasing it. The car parked next to contact's vehicle was destroyed, as well as 2 or 3 other cars were damaged. He contacted daimler/Chrysler, and they were going to send someone to look at the car. The dealer agreed to give contact a loaner vehicle. Contact did not notice any defect within the car prior to the fire. This was reported to the fire department and police department. Contact had pictures of the car. He said that dealer installed a passive alarm system with an ignition kill, a remote start feature, could start the car without the key.
