While driving the vehicle, making a right-hand turn the vehicle stopped running, with no warnings on the dashboard. It just shut off. While attempting to pull out of the garage one morning the vehicle lost steering to the right side of the car. The car was taken to a reputable mechanic who kept it for two days and could not find anything wrong with the it. The vehicle has had numerous times when it de-accelerates while turning to the right. On a couple of occasions the car actually stopped. Each time the vehicle has been checked out I have been told that no problem registers and cannot be diagnosed unless they mechanic can get it to duplicate. Now, the car will not turn over. It drove fine, I got home parked it in the garage and was getting ready to leave again, got into the vehicle to start it up and it will not start. No messages on the dashboard. The lights turn on yet it will not turn over. At least this time when everything went haywire I was safely home and not on the street, or highway driving as I have been in the past. This has happened on numerous occasions.

On multiple occasions (more notably in moist weather, I.e. rain, morning dew, and humidity) my vehicle has stalled out causing me to have to pull off or veer on to the shoulder of the road. The vehicle does not show any error codes, nor does it have any stored codes from the occasions that this particular issue has come up. The dealerships in my area claim that they have never heard of this issue before and cannot attribute it to anything in particular. They are reluctant to provide me any type of advice because they don't want to be "subject to lemon laws" and so for that fact I feel that Chrysler is attempting to turn a blind eye to a very real, very dangerous issue with their vehicles.

I parked my car at a cvs pharmacy drive thru to pick up a prescription. Once the transaction was completed I attempted to leave the area and the gear would not move from the park position. I called aaa (keystone) for roadside assistance to move my car. Upon arrival to my car the aaa fleet driver informed me that the problem seems common with Chrysler-made vehicles recently. He explained to me that my override button was broken and did not work, then he showed me how to remove the gear shaft cover to access the back up override - the gear release button. He noted that he just assisted a Dodge charger owner with the same problem and recommended I check for any recall data for this ongoing Chrysler problem. I immediately checked online to learn that there is a K39 recall for the gear shaft of 2005-2007 models of the Chrysler 300. I called the nearest dealer for an appointment to address this issue. Once I arrived at the dealer, I was told that my VIN number did not fit the recall requirements and told that I must pay to fix the part out of pocket. This $400 repair should have been covered by the recall, and Chrysler! my car was manufactured May 23, 2007 and the "arbitrary" cut off date for the K39 recall is June 1, 2007! how can one - two weeks make that much difference"!? how can 2005 models be included yet two weeks prior not??" if the problem exists and is noted as a recall issue all vehicles that encounter the malfunction must be included in the recall!! it should be clear that the problem is systematic, not date or location specific!! this problem should be fixed at Chrysler's expense, not the customer!!!

On 11/25/09, while driving to work in my 2007 Chrysler 300C AWD, my check engine light illuminated. On the way home from work, the steering wheel began to slip, and the front end felt out of control. I was on the highway, it was raining, and I was very scared. I slowed to about 40 mph, and pulled to the right lane. I still did not feel safe, and, given the vehicle history and the fact that I have a newborn at home, I decided to pull over and have the car towed. When I took delivery of the vehicle on 07/23/07 the steering wheel had to be adjusted, it was positioned at 10 O'clock. On 09/20/07, with 2163 miles, the car pulled, again the steering wheel had to be repositioned, and the front end was aligned. On 11/28/07 with 5130 miles, again the car pulled, again the steering wheel had to be adjusted, and again the front end was aligned. On 01/25/08 with 6863 miles, yet again the car was pulling. The dealer found that the "cradle needed to be shifted" and they adjusted the cradle. Per the rep, dealer replaced 2 front tires, due to uneven wear. On 06/26/09, with 29002 miles, once again the car was pulling. Dealer found "play in inner tie/rods", replaced steering rack, and aligned. I requested 2 more tires due to uneven wear, I was told tires are not covered under normal wear and tear. I do not feel this is normal wear and tear. I do not feel safe driving this vehicle, and I will not get behind the wheel again.
