I just purchased my car in late April it is now November. I didn't notice the brake problem which is a vibration when I came to a stop, until a week after. I figured I probably need new brake pads. One of my least concerns. But last month I began to smell gas. I thought it was just the other vehicles around me or the location I was at. I looked under the car and there's was no leak. I kept doing this when I smelled gas and nothing. Last night November 6 2011, I filled up my tank to go out of town. When I was leaving to go back home from the long ride, the parking area smelled like gas! it was leaking from my car! about a quarter of gas leaked. This time I saw a puddle on the ground where the back passenger side would be. Not only was this embarrassing but I had my wife and child with me in the car that I had to take home smelling this as well as taking the risk of blowing up! we did not have any other way of getting home, that's why I had no choice and took the risk. Thank god we got home safe. This is just ridiculous.

The "ABS" light is on when driving and the brake pedal seems stiff and jumps back up when applying the brakes, found possible recall F50 may be related, but is not applicable to this vehicle.

I purchased a Chrysler 300 on 11/19/09. I had an accident on 12/10/09. I have learned since the accident, there was a recall on this model concerning the antilock brake system. Since we purchased used, I don't know if this was ever corrected on our vehicle. The ABS lights stays on and mechanics says it is not dangerous, just the cruise want work. We have carried this car back to dealership several times and spent over $2,000. On repairs and now they tell us it can't be fixed and we are afraid to drive the car even though they say it is O.K. to drive. Especially since I found there was a recall on this vehicle and I had a wreck. I ran into the back of a cotton wagon. I applied brakes but did not stop, just slide.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler 300. Immediately after purchasing the vehicle she noticed that the rear of the vehicle would swerve back and forth. She also noticed a grinding and squeaking sound in the rear brake area. The vehicle was driven to the dealer on three occasions regarding the swerving in the rear of the vehicle and later due to the brakes. The mechanic informed her that they could not find a defect regarding the swerving in the rear and they would re-align and rotate the tires. He also informed her that the brake pads were worn and the vehicle needed new rotors. The repairs were performed on the vehicle; however, the vehicle continued to swerve back and forth. The dealer and the manufacturer were notified. The vehicle has not been repaired. Supporting documents are available. The failure mileage was 27,000 and the current mileage was 36,255.
