I own a 2007 Chrysler 300C. It has a lifetime power train warranty. As the original owner of this vehicle with the paper work of the warranty I still had to argue with a Chrysler dealership and Chrysler on a covered part. Afterwards I still had to pay a $50 deductible. I purchased this vehicle because it came with this lifetime power train warranty. As I read the complaints listed on this vehicle, the complaints with the gear shift handle sticking and even the one about the operation from 4 to 8 cylinders I what to leave this information on here for them. If they are the original owner of the 07 Chrysler 300C and have kept up the required maintenance on it then they to should have a lifetime warranty on those repairs as they are part of the power train. My complaint is about the heater. The knob allows you to adjust the temperature from 60 to 88 high. My heat doesn't come on until it's turned all the way up to high and then it is scorching hot. There's no in-between. It's either cold or very hot. This is dangerous and very aggravating. On another note, the past winter I didn't drive my 300C for a month do to the ice and snow. I left it parked in my driveway. The battery died. So I charged it and now the 3 lights, the anti-lock breaks, skid and traction wont go off. I've checked all the fuses and even hooked up the scanner to check for codes. No bad fuses and no bad codes. I've disconnected the battery cable hoping that might reset what ever is causing the lights to stay on. Still no luck. I've drove the car all spring, summer and now fall 2014 without any problems with the brakes or steering. But I do not want these lights to stay on as they are suppose to be safety items and is concerning. Has anyone else had any of these problems? if so can you email me and let me know what you found out if anything.

We were on the freeway and in the space of several seconds, we lost rpms, the check engine light came on, then the traction light, then all of the lights, then it died just as we got onto the shoulder. The mechanic had to replace timing belt and water pump just to get it running enough to run the codes. Mechanic reports that there are bent valves and 4 of the cylinders are misfiring.

I had a full electrical system shutdown. Once I was able to get the car stopped on the side of the road I had the tow truck driver check the battery level and it was good. No lights, power, nothing. RPM & speedometer were still pegged at the level they were at when the issue occurred.

300C 8-cyl

I own a 2007 Chrysler 300 C. for the past two years the car just shuts off while driving. It does not matter what speed I am doing. It just shuts down. It takes me pulling off the road if I can, shut it off and restart it. Recently I took it to Chrysler for I think the third time and they replaced the ECU. It worked for about three months and yesterday I was driving in interstate driving when it shut down doing 70 miles hour. Barely avoiding a semi from running into the back of me. It happened twice with in a 500 mile drive. Very dangerous. About three weeks ago it happened on a side street and I pulled over and it started up fine. Wrote it off and went on. This is very bad. I am going back to the dealer tomorrow and find out what can be done. No warning when this happens and it seems Chrysler has no answer but to replace the computer.

All the warning lights on the dash were flashing and speedometer and tachometer was pulsating from 0 to actual, no loss of power however scared the stuff out of me. Stopped and turned engine off. Was ok, by the way, we were on Canada 1 and had to get back to the us. Almost got home and it all started again.
