I've noticed when shifting into drive there is a noticeable delay. It also occurs when shifting from reverse to drive and vise-versa, there's is also a pause/delay that occurs when attempting to accelerate. Noticeable when trying to attempt a U-turn and in the middle of traffic while waiting for the transmission to catch. Once it does catch there's a instant lunge/acceleration, causing everyone in the vehicle whip flash and has caused me to be extra vigilant. Although I've been experiencing this for some time I didn't know the issue was so wide spread. It is a safety issue that Chrysler should be held accountable for. Until this hazard/dangerous problem is rectified I will not consider Chrysler for my next purchase.

My 2007 Chrysler 300C has a lifetime powertrain warranty. I received the document listing the parts covered for the lifetime warranty. My ABS, esp and tcs lights came on. The right rear speed sensor went bad. I called graven and set up appointment for warranty work. I also called Chrysler Corp. I brought my car to graven Chrysler, 10-10-11 at approx. 2:30pm. Graven Chrysler called the next morning, 10-11-11 7:53am my car was ready. Graven said it was going to cost $135. I said that the work was warranty. Graven said it wasn't warranty work because part number doesn't come back as warranty. I explained to the assistant that it is warranty, that my car has a lifetime powertrain warranty. She said that only covers the engine, transmission and driveline. I said it also covers a lot of other parts which I have a list of. She then said, you will have to talk with Chrysler and there was nothing she could do. Chrysler said I have to pay a $50 co-pay. I said why should I pay a co-pay when this part has a lifetime warranty. I was told I can pay the $50 or $185. I said that I was told it was $135. I said for now I will pay the $50 but would file a complaint for the warranty and getting my $50 back. The next day I received a call from Chrysler. I was asked how my car was running. I said it drove home ok. She said that she would close the case then. I said that I can't understand why you made me pay $50 co-pay when the part is listed on the paperwork as having a lifetime warranty under the powertrain. She said that I could call graven Chrysler back and try and get them to except it. I said, why, you are the person who makes the decision as you did about the co-pay and the graven Chrysler wouldn't even do that.

My 2007 Chrysler 300 is stuck in park, I took it to the dealership and they said this something that is not covered under warrenty, but is does happen alot. The problem is very to be internal to the shifter assembly. There is a pink plastic arm where the ignition interlock cable attaches in the shifter. This arm is spring loaded and can eventually break. When it does then you won't be able to move the shifter from park because the shifter doesn't know the key is turned on. The dealership want to charge to keep replacing it which mind you is not cover under warrenty. I have talked to people who have had this problem also.
