My car pulls to the right while driving. I have taken this in to the dealer three or four times and have been told that all of the 2005 300S do that. If I want to see if an alignment will correct it, I will have to pay for it myself.

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.

Steering wheel vibrates speedometer goes from 65 to 40 engine light comes and stays on dates 2/24/05 4/1/25 4/11/05 4/25/05 the dealer wanted the consumer to continue driving the vehicle without determining what the problem was. The only the thing that they were willing to do was change the sparks plugs. There was also a whistling noise while on the freeway. The windshield was removed an re-installed. The air bag light illuminated on several occasions

This vehicle (as I understand, this and may others) is experiencing a pull to right. It has been in the shop numerous times and has had the tsb (camb. Bolt) performed 2 times. Purchased this car in August and have had this problem right from the begining...now we are at the end of April and it is not fixed. We have had all tires replaced for wear (and have been told that this has nothing to do with alignment) this vehicle's production date is very early. Apparently Chrysler has since fixed the problem on newer 300's being produced....but can seem to fix the older ones. At this point I am questioning whether this can be repaired.

2005 Chrysler 300 experiencing serious problems with steering. During the sub zero temperatures this winter, the consumer stated the steering would freeze. The lower the temperature would drop the harder the vehicle became to steer. The dealer showed the consumer a service bulletin outlining the problem, but was not provided a solution.

I have a 2005 Chrysler 300 made in August of 2004. It has an issue, as many of these and Dodge magnums do, with pulling to the right while driving. This is a very dangerous issue and should be looked into! my car has been in the shop 3 times and I have only had it for 2 weeks! my car keep swirving right and I keep having to pull it back. The dealer keeps giving my excuses and Chrysler is denying that there is a problem. This is a very real problem! it almost caused an accident on April 2nd, 2005!

My Chrysler 300 has 7000 miles on it and has been to the shop 3 times for a front end alignment problem, car pulls to the right shop says it is supposed to follow the crown in the road ( I was born at night but not last night ) come on Chrysler you can come up with a better excuse than that. This is a recall problem they should be forced to fix this. All dealers are being told to use this excuse, about the car is supposed to follow the crown or it is a heck of a coincedence that this complaint keeps coming up.

Car pulls to right returned for service 22 Oct, dealer performs tsb for alignment only, tires ruined and need replacement which will be done on Oct 27th. Take car, with in 10 miles cars starts to pull again, call dealer and arrange to have car picked up from home on Oct 25th. Research problem on internet and provide tsb 02-003-04 which calls for installment of camber bolts and new alignment specs. Dealer was not aware of this tsb. Pick up car on Nov 1, car drives great, but for only about 300 miles and starts to pull right again. Returned to dealer Nov 9th, and on Nov 12th dealer tells me car is in spec and offers me a similar car to test drive and compare. Test drive 300C made in September- car drives perfect. Drive my car and stills pulls to right. Had technician james drive my car and he agreed it pulls and said this to the salesman. Car is now at dealer and still not repaired. I have driven this car about 1200 miles and it only drove well for about 300 of these. Secondly 210 miles were put on driving this car back and forth to dealer.
