2006 Chrysler 300 Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 57,000 miles


Between multipoint vehicle inspections performed in 12/2008 and 11/2009), my vehicle developed a rear axle differential seal leak. With less than 59000 miles normal vehicle operation and less than three years of ownership, I am confronted with a defective rear axle differential seal. Without replacement of this expensive factory defect, there is a possibility for the rear axle to over heat and possibly ignite the vehicle afire.

My new 2006 Chrysler 300 C with all wheel drive has a shake in the steering wheel at approx. 50 mph and the whole car develops a complete body shake at higher speeds thats feels like the wheels are gonna leave the car. The dealer road force balanced the existing tires and could not resolve the problem. Then they changed the tires and it still did it. They then sent the car out for more roadforce balancing. After several attemps and enough wheel weights to balance the wheels of 2 cars, the problem was minimized but still not corrected. At highway speeds the car still feels unsafe, and it still shakes at low speed sometimes. I was told that the all wheel drive models have an unknown problem and I could consider a new car replacement, but shouldnt buy another all wheel drive because they all have this problem and that I was welcome to test drive another car exactly like mine and I would see that it to has the same problem. They have offered an extended warranty free of charge but they cant do anything else about the cars problem until perhaps enough complaints were filed to force Chrysler to do something about it.I dont know if its a wheel problem or drivetrain or other but I fear whatever this problem is it may eventually endanger my life as well as others.
