I have made contact with a local Chrysler deal about both recalls on my 300 with no results. I'm told they will contact me when parts are available, but they never call. I will not be held responsible for any cost if these recall issues do damage to my own vehichle or pasender in my vehicle. I have tried numeriour times to get these issues rectified and have been unable to make headway with the dealership.

Recently we bought a 2008 Chrysler 300. A few months after we got it, it would not start. We bought a new battery and a few weeks after that, it wouldn't start. We took it to the dealership and they said they could not find anything wrong with it. Now, sometimes it will start and sometimes it wont. There is no clicking or anything like that just silence when it won't start. The horn works the lights work and the ding that lets you know the door is open. It can set for a couple of weeks and then start right up and a couple of days later, nothing. I couldn't find a recall on my specific car but I know they have had a lot of electrical problems. Can you help?

I got a recall almost a year ago for the ignition switch and about a month or so ago for the air bag. Chrysler has told me neither part is available. My car may start and it may not start for months. It's been towed several times after not starting while out or getting off work late. I feel Chrysler have put me in some very dangerous situations of being stranded. I don't and can't drive my car because of the recalls. I pay for insurance on a car I can't drive. I feel that Chrysler should buy my car back because it is no use to me and very inconvenient. I paid thousands of dollars for your product and this is how you treat your customers. Shame on you Chrysler corporation!!!!!!!

While traveling on I465 East and driving 65 miles an hour I changed lanes to exit the highway and the car shut off.I put it in neutral and restarted the engine. On March 3rd 2014 the car would not start and I had it towed from anderson Indiana to indianapolis Indiana by aaa. I have since paid $1400 for parts and labor and my vehicle is still not running. I also paid the vehicle off while it was not running and had to purchase another vehicle. All this without being aware of an ignition switch problem.

On April 7, 2015 I had trouble starting my car. I thought it was the starter and took the car to my local service station where my car "died". they evaluated the car and told me it was the key and wins component. On April 8, the service station manager called me to say that the local Chrysler dealership did not know when they would be able to get the part, so I rented a car. On April 17, I was advised to call Chrysler customer service. I now had a case number and was told my issue would be expedited but the part was not available in the usa. On April 27, I wrote to the president and vp of Chrysler corporation asking for their help. On May 6, I received a call from mike at corporate headquarters saying the part would be here on May 13 (it wasn't) and Chrysler would pay for my car rental (which they did). On May 26, I was told that the keys were in but not the wins component - that might not be ready until July. Later that day, my car was fixed !! but with Jeep parts. It cost me over $1200; the trunk doesn't open with the key; the tire light remains on at all times and the Chrysler part is still not available. And I may have to pay for the repair again once the right part comes in!!!

The engine cooling fan on my 2008 Chrysler 300 (3.5L V6) separated/blew apart during the fan operation and caused damage to the radiator. The fan and radiator needed to be replaced. There is a recall notice on the engine cooling fans for the Chrysler 300 (2006-2008) as listed on the NHTSA website; however, Chrysler claims that my car (2008 Chrysler 300) is not eligible for the recall. This is the same issue as reported by other Chrysler 300 drivers.

Recall # P57/NHTSA 14V-567 (registered under aim nationalease) I writing you due to the fact that I received this notice on 11/26/14 and my service manager has called the dealer many times to only get the answer we do not have parts to repair this recall. I feel this is not the response the public should get every time we call a Chrysler dealer. We are a transportation company that deals with class a equipment and make sure our vehicles are safe daily to be on the road. I would expect that we should get a better response from Chrysler on the issue. Please respond with the repair dealer you would like us to get this car fixed.

We received a recall notice for the ignition switch back in November 2014. The switch began failing in late April 2015. We took the vehicle to a local dealership (mike anderson Dodge in marion, Indiana). They said all they could do was replace the part with the same defective part and charge us for the part and the labor. They replaced the part with a part they know is defective and places our lives in danger and charged us $565 to do so. They said that when the replacement part becomes available that Chrysler may reimburse us. This does not seem right.

A month after purchasing my car the car would not start the factory alarm and lights would automatically star flashing and come on, my car was back in the shop 35 times or more which the dealership where I purchased the car became rude and mean toward me, my ignition switch is stuck completely now and my car as of 11/15/2914 will not start. The recall parts are still not available what can I do" I'm frustrated as a single lady trying to handle my responsibility. I called the NHTSA hotline and they keep saying make sure when you turn the key to the on position, this car is designed without any words on the switch or dashboard so when lock how do you know where the positions are" when trying to put my key in the ignition it would not go in. I have know idea what to do at this point.

The switch is not functioning properly, several times I have turned the switch on and it will pop back to the off position, one time I was driving across a parking lot at maybe 15-20 mph and it popped back to the off position and shut the car off while in motion, all I have on the the key ring is the key itself nothing else so it cant be the weight. I feel this is a very dangerous.
