2006 Chrysler 300C Owner Comments

problem #6

I have had problems with my 2006 Chrysler 300C door handles for quite some time now. After a year or two when I first purchased the vehicle, the back exterior (chrome) right door handle became partially detached. I had it repaired and since then, the very same door handle as well as the exterior door handle on the driver's side is partially detached. Also, the handle on the passenger side is completely detached. This is a big problem. I bought my car brand new and I have had numerous problems with it. As pricey as this vehicle is, you would think that Chrysler would use the best parts for their vehicles. There needs to be a recall on these handles. When I replaced it before, it cost about $200 and this is ridiculous. I should not have to pay to replace these handles when clearly there is an issue on their end. I also want to add that my car has stalled numerous times before after putting gas in it and the oil light would come on sometimes. My headlights also don't work properly. I have to keep the headlight knob in the auto position just for them to remain on otherwise the lights will blink on and off. So during the daytime, my headlights are on. I didn't have this issue until after I took my car for an oil change at the dealership. I absolutely hate to take my car to the dealership (hebert's Town & Country) because they never can seem to fix the problem or they end up creating one.

Door handle has broken twice. First, it broke on the front driver door. The, today, 05/06/14, it broke on the back passenger door. There is a small piece of plastic that has appear to crack and break causing the door handle to separate from the door. Online forums report many users with this same issue. Dodge has a door handle recall. Chrysler and Dodge are the same family. This car needs a recall on the door handle.

Making a U-turn and my car cuts off, I hit the brakes immediately but still hit the curb with my wheels and passenger side bumper. Please recall this gas tank issue. These cars are not safe!! they cut off at random times, unpredictable.

Vehicle stalls at random. Today I was driving 30-40 mph and my engine stalls and turns off. I was stuck in the middle of a busy intersection off a freeway ramp. Where is the recalling on this" are they waiting for deaths" this has been an on going serious issue and needs to be resolved. This vehicle is very dangerous to drive!

Outside door handle broke loose when I opened my car door on my 2006, Chrysler 300C. All of my door handles are very loose. I should not have to pay out of pocket expense for this type of defect.
