Problem # 1--2007 Chrysler 300 hemi engine should be recalled for the brake shifter component. Recently the car locked in park, and could not be taken out of park without using a screwdriver to release it after removing the drive shifter panel. Problem #2--recently, the car started to loose power on the expressway without any warning. My speed was 60 mph and dropping. After allowing the car to coast in the far right lane the car regained power without any action on my part other than allowing the car to coast for a minute. Problem # 3--this problem also occurs when shifting from neutral to reverse. The car stalls out and will not respond. The car must be shut off and back on to allow it to reset then the car will move backward once put back into reverse. Mileage on the vehicle is 79,000 miles approx.. never again will I purchase a Chrysler product. Never!

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler 300C. The contact stated that the gear would not release from the park position. The dealer nor manufacturer were notified of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 45,000.

My spouse drove the vehicle to work in the morning, drove the vehicle at lunch and upon leaving her work for the day, attempted to drive home. The vehicle would start, however the gear selector would not move from the park position. Even using the override on the right side of the console would allow the vehicle to move form the park position. The vehicle was towed to the dealership. The dealership was very aware of the problem stating, "it is very common, and it's not covered by the warranty as it is a mechanical linkage, not associated with the transmission or drivetrain." The dealership also related the problem may occur again. I paid for the repair (approximately $300) plus the cost of a rental for the day. The problem has not occurred again since the repair.

I have also pressed down on the accelerator and nothing has happened and then all of a sudden it shifted!! another complaint I have is that when driving in town and the car is in drive and the fuel saver mode their is a shudder in the transmission between 45 and 52 kilometres per hour!! this does not happen if it is not in the fuel saver mode or when you manually shift it into 4!! I have taken it to my local dealer where I bought the car and they told me that there is nothing they can do at the present moment but to get back to them if it gets any worse!! I have 76000kms on my car now and this started to happen around 70000 kms!! I have extended warranty so I keep my dealer informed of any problems so that they are able to help me out before my warranty goes off!!

I have a 2007 Chrysler 300. When I am pushing on the gas it hesitates on going, sometimes it will hesitate for a few seconds and then jerk hard. I have been dealing with this for a while! it started about a year after I got the car and it's gotten worse. It happens every time I drive it now. When it was under warranty the dealer always said it was no problem, now they want to do something to the torque in the transmission. They also updated codes and that did not work. I have had the car for over 2 years and I should not be dealing with transmission problems.

Intermittent delay when shifting from reverse to drive, the delay can be up to 7-8 seconds during which time the car doesn't respond to throttle inputs. There is also a low rumbling noise that occurs when operating at low speeds when the engine is at idle. The problem becomes a danger when backing out into traffic or performing a three point turn, because you never know when you will end up stuck in the middle of the road unable to move with oncoming traffic bearing down on you, I have almost been hit countless times. The car has been to the dealer three times and they keep getting the same fault codes indicating a failure to communicate between shift module and transmission. Their solution has been to change the same part a shift module three times which has required them to keep my car for extended periods after which they inform me that they think the problem is fixed but don't know.

Upshifting from 1st and downshifting from 2nd gear has a skip or rough-like bump at slow speeds.
