Every time we get the car filled with gas it stalls until we drive and restart it for 2 or 3 miles. It is very dangerous and I am afraid that there will be someone that runs into me during one of the stalls. I replaced the gas cap but that did not help the problem. I went on line and now see that it is a very common problem. There should be a recall by Chrysler to immediately correct this very serious problem!!!

Everytime the car was filled up, it stalls a few times. This had been happening a lot during this pst year and still currently happens. Luckily I was able to pull over when the car stalled, otherwise it will create accident. This is dangerous when driving on the crowded traffic. After it stalls couple times, the engine got clogged and it is difficult to start(this was the same time-dame day after filling up the tank). I brought it to the mechanic and he said he can't find anything since at the time he got the car to check, it doesn't stall.

Car stalls after refueling. Difficult to restart and leaves you in a very dangerous situation. We've had it completely stall going 70 mph down the interstate and almost was involved in an accident while limping to the shoulder. Too dangerous to re-merge after car finally restarts because it will hesitate and misfire or stall again. This will happen about every 2 months with no symptoms between incidents. Also seems to happen more in hotter weather.

The first time it happened I was sitting at a red light waiting to turn left. The car just stalled. I restarted without difficulty. It was a few days after when it happened again. It has probably happened about 7 times more since then, every time while I was idling with my foot on the brake. Each time it restarted on the first try. However for the first time today the car stalled while in drive going about 15 mph.

After filling up my fuel tank I would notice the engine stall. This is very dangerous especially when I'm crossing an intersection or getting on a freeway.

Fueled the vehicle, attendant "topped it off". started vehicle and it sputtered, running poorly as if it had a fuel issue. Smelt fuel from under the hood. Let vehicle set for 10 minutes, started up vehicle and proceeded to a 4-lane main highway. Just as we accelerated from the stop light, the car sputtered, then died. I managed to pull over to the side of the road out of traffic. Let the unit set for 10 minutes, ran the vehicle and no further issues that day. At the next fill up, the same pattern emerged. A third incident occurred a few months later and I researched the problem. Since that time I have cautioned the fuel attendants to not "top it off" and the issue has not reoccurred.

My car has been stalling out frequently, especially at stops. I have taken it to the dealership to check it out but they said that they couldn't find anything wrong, based on their computer diagnostics.

Car stalls while driving without warning. I've had this happen at least three times and a couple of times, I had trouble restarting the car. The unpredictable nature of the problem make me apprehensive to drive the car on the highway, or on any long trips.

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300C bought it new and never had any problems until 2012 when we were traveling for the holidays and stopped to refuel. After filling the tank we started the car and proceeded to drive, the car started bucking and then would shut off. It did this twice before it stopped and then drove fine for the rest of the trip. It did the same thing on our way home after filling the gas tank but after doing it several times it drove fine for the rest of the trip. Once home the car drove fine until I filled it up with gas and the problem started again. It bucks and then stalls, sometimes it will start right away and other times I had to let it sit a while. This has happened in the middle of an intersection, at a stop light and while just driving along. This is scary as well as dangerous because not only does it stop anywhere which could cause another car to hit you, the steering wheel locks and on one occasion I almost hit another car because I couldn't steer out of the way during a turn. Took it to the dealership and was told I need to replace the gas tank gave me info about cannisters and vapors and not being something that is serviceable. Of course it's going to be expensive but this type of problem is a danger on the road could lead to a serious accident.

After filling up the car it will stutter and stall randomly. I have almost been hit twice and honked at numerous times for a basic, yet dangerous issue.

After filling up the gas tank, the car stalls when at speeds of less than 15 miles per hour. It stalls in the middle of intersections and on turning on to streets. Took the car into the Chrysler dealer and they informed us that the gas tank had to be replaced because of bad evap solenoid which is permanently affixed to the fuel tank. It is very dangerous to drive after filling up because of the chance of being rear ended.

After refilling the vehicle with gasoline I travel about a mile from the service station and while coming to a traffic light the vehicle RPM began to decrease until the car engine shut off; I was able to restart the engine and the vehicle drove a short distance and began to stall again. I restarted the vehicle and was able to get the vehicle off the road into a parking lot; after sitting briefly I restarted the vehicle and drove it to tire kingdom to have it checked, the technician scan the vehicle and determined that there was no codes available to determined what caused the malfunction. He took the vehicle for a test drive but was not able to duplicate the discrepancy; in his opinion since the vehicle tank had just got filled more that likely the problem was caused by a vapor lock. I was told since the problem could not be duplicated to continue with my travel and if the problem returned to return the vehicle back for evaluation.
