From what I've learned there's a defect in Chrysler automobiles with the hemi engine. Any time the gas tank is filled, if a sharp left turn is taken the car stalls out. This is exactly what has happened to me periodically over the last two years. I brought the car to two local mechanics and the Chrysler dealership, nobody could figure it out, it doesn't show up on the car's computer. Finally, a third mechanic googled it and came up with an article in the L.a.times that perfectly described my situation (duh, I should've thought of that). It wasn't until the car stalled in the middle of a busy road, on a Friday afternoon, with my two-year-old daughter in the car, that I really had an issue. I was able to roll into the parking lot of a shopping plaza, so it ended alright, but if there was nowhere to go that could've spelled disaster! as a guy I can handle a situation like this, but when children are involved a defect of this type is unacceptable. I'm the original owner of the car, so it's not related to user error by any means. In the end the third mechanic quoted me $1800 for a new gas tank + lines + labor, or I could not fill my tank to the top when I get gas. Thanks Chrysler! plus, the shifter for the automatic transmission on the 300C will lock up, not letting the driver shift from park to drive. Thanks again Chrysler for stranding my pregnant wife! (I still have the shifter in my garage hoping that will be a recall).
