(1) when stopped at a light the engine intermittently vibrates and runs rough for a few seconds and almost stalls then idles normally. Also sometimes the engine will stall out when driving. Vehicle was brought back to the dealer several times. Dealer did a computer modification #489614A1 but condition persists. (2) air conditioning. When stopped at a traffic light in gear or in neutral, the air conditioning compressor cycles on for 15 seconds and then off for 5 seconds. Each time the ac cycles on there is a clunk and vibration & grinding thru the steering column and brake pedal. The dealer installed an ac compressor pulley kit. Condition still persists. (3) when the vehicle slows down from 12 mph to 3 mph whether in drive or neutral with or without applying the brakes there is a vibration and whine noise coming from the front thru the steering column. The dealer said it was from the tires and rotated and balanced them several times. The condition still persists.

My car stalls when turning left at low speeds. The first time it happened I had to pull over and restart it. Just minutes later I was approaching an intersection and turning left and the car stalled. I took it to the dealership and they advised that they couldn't find the problem and sent me away.

Dt; consumer bought a Chrysler 300 model year 2005. When driving forward at 5 miles per hour the car turns off, also when driving in reverse it turns off. Everything goes off even the lights. After placing the vehicle in park, it starts again but does not turn off. In a time lapse of 1 week it happened 3 times. Vehicle was taken to the dealer April 9, 2005 and it is still there. Dealer can't find the problem. Consumer was told to come and pick up the car. Consumer feels he/she is risking his/her life and is afraid to pick the vehicle up.

The vehiclewas brought to freehold Chrysler for service for the engine light coming on, not shifting properly, hesitation, left and right side molding coming off, trunk latch broken and car pulling to the right. Freehold Chrysler stated they could not duplicate the problems and found no codes and the wheel alignment was done at a cost to me of $95, molding and trunk latch was replaced. We then brought the car back again for pulling to the right about 1 week later and again the told us it was fixed.the vehicle was not pulling as much but still was. About 2 weeks later the car was red lining, not shifting and stalling on her. We brought the car to eatontown Chrysler in which they found a transmission solenoid to be bad and replaced it. We then started to experience electrical problems such as rear window not working all the time and air bag light sometimes flashing on and off while driving and again hesitation when stating from stop. Also the moon roof interior shade opens to about an inch after driving to vehicle for about a week. We contacted freehold Chrysler about these problem and the previous wheel alignment and made an appointment for May 3, 2005. Now its May 8th and we have approx. 20,000 on the vehicle and we are being told the wheel alignment was completed based on a service bulletin and at no cost to us, even though we paid $95 originally, and the rest of the problems cannot be duplicated and there's nothing else they could do. I contacted the Chrysler Corp. Service center at 18009921997 and spoke to numerous people in reference to these problems and was told to take the car to another dealership and there's nothing else that they could do.

I purchased a new Chrysler 300 on 11/03/04 and experienced difficulty with the vehicles lights both interior and exterior. Called grogan dealership on 11/9/04 to issue the complaint. Was told to bring the vehicle in. The vehicle went into the shop at the dealership on 11/30/04 and was returned to me on 12/02/04 with an invoice stating there is no fix at this time. Made several complaints since then about the safety concern related to this vehicles lights flickering continuously. Then on 12/17/04 the vehicles lights went completely out causing an accident with an injury. The accident resulted in an injury and severe damage to the vehicle. This is a safety concern for individuals in the vehicle and any oncoming traffic. Chrysler was contacted and the dealership and neither are owning up to the safety concern. Neglect is unacceptable. I have young children and have been blessed that they were not in the vehicle at the time of the accident. Something needs to be done immediately before a fatality occurs from someone's neglect. As I can see from this website that several complaints have been issued regarding this problem. I am sure there are many more that just haven't surfaced. In addition, the vehicle is sitting at a towing lot and neither the dealership nor Chrysler have taken the initiative to have this vehicle towed and worked on for correction. Meanwhile, I am sitting without a vehicle. Anyone having this problem feel free to contact me, we need to have this corrected immediately.
