I have a 2005 Chrysler 300 touring edition, the driver's side tension strut failed causing my anti-lock brakes to fail. Due to the failure I had to swerve off of the road into a small ditch damaging my undercarriage and fender wells.

Unable to shift gear out of parking position. This issue was fixed August 2009 and is happening again. Unfortunately, I never know when the issue will surface and recently, I was in a not so nice neighborhood and frightened to death because I was unable to shift from park to reverse. After a few attempts of cutting my car off and on and executing the brakes, I was able to get the car going again. So over this issue right now.

Started car and tried to put it in gear. Could not get it out of park. A situation much talked about on line. The failure of the "transmission shifter interlock lever" commonly called "the pink thingy" on line some owners tell of having gotten a recall. I called my local Chrysler dealer. He said it depended on where the car was built if there was a recall. Imagine how happy that made me !!!
