300 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


I just purchased a Chrysler 300C back in July. I had to return to the dealership 4 times for the ez-up window on the driver side malfunctioning. They stated to me that Chrysler knows about the problem but don't know how to fix it. Every time they reset the computer, the window works for about 3 days then stops working. This is getting annoying to me.

: the contact stated after shifting the transmission from park to reverse, the brake pedal was released and the vehicle accelerated on its own. The brake pedal was depressed again, but the vehicle did not respond. The vehicle stopped after hitting a ditch. There was minor damage to the vehicle and no injuries. The vehicle was towed the dealership, the computer stored no codes and the dealer was unable to duplicate the problem. Updated 8/1/2006 - the consumer's vehicle started electrical problems a week after it was purchased. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer several times for repairs. The radio went out then came back on. The all the panel light went out. The dealer replaced the cluster. The esp bas light illuminated on the dash. The dealer replaced the parking brake switch. The driver's side window auto up function failed. The dealer calibrated the auto up function. When turning the key to start the vehicle it doesn't start. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 tries before the vehicle will start. The dealer replaced the wireless control module. Ignition switch was replaced because the vehicle wouldn't start.

My 2006 Chrysler 300 with 6800 miles on it has been in the shop twice for the A/C and has not yet been fixed. After traveling for a distance, A/C stops blowing cold air. The first time it went to the shop, they did not detect anything and told me to bring it in when it is accruing. The second time it stopped, I drove straight to the dealer with it not working and they still told me it is not giving any code to tell them what is wrong so they cant fix anything. They agreed with me that something is wrong, but they could not determine it. So I have a new car with an A/C that just stops when it wants, and I am just supposed to deal with it as they will say.

I purchase a 300 touring on Nov 5 2006. This was a brand new car with only 4 mile. The check engine light came on the first time on Nov 17. I contacted the dealership and took the car in. I was told that they did a diagnostic test and didn't see any code indicating that anything was wrong. The light was reset and the car was return to me. I drove it again for several days and the light came back on again for the second time Nov 23 2006. I contact the dealership again and took the car in. I was told that when the tech started the car he didn't see the light on. I was told to take the car home. When the problem started the car had less than 1500 miles. I don't feel safe driving this car. I have the feeling the dealership is just resetting the light and not trying to fix the problem. I did notice on your site that this was a problem with the 300 touring.
