Failure Date: 02/28/2012

We have 5 Chrysler 300's used for transporting our residents in and around our community 4 out of 5 of these vehicles have had the same issue. The cooling system fan blades come apart and the shrouds of the fan go through the radiator causing immediate leakage of all coolant and destroying the radiator. As of date 4/30/12 Chrysler/Dodge has yet to recall this defect and is not covered under warranty. This is obviously a problem with this year, model and needs to recalled on the 300's and the Dodge chargers.

The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler 300. The contact stated that while waiting at a traffic stop, she heard a loud popping noise and then temperature gauge indicated that the vehicle was overheating. The contact mentioned that once she exited the vehicle, she realized that all of the radiator fluid had drained out. The vehicle was towed to a dealer who diagnosed that the electric power radiator cooling fan had separated and punctured the radiator. As a result, both needed to be replaced.

The failure mileage was 49,000 and the current mileage was 53,000.

My 2006 chysler 300 has ductwork problems. The heat will not go off! also the seat warmers are very warm even when they suppose to be off. It's like sitting in a fire while driving. This has to be unsafe. Call dealer marty cancillas and service technician is aware of issue but wants to charge a $139 diagnostic fee to tell me what he already knows to be wrong. He said it was the ductwork or modor motor or some component of the ductwork in dashboard area. Please investigate.

I purchased a brand new 2007 Chrysler 300l in June 2008 with 127 miles my car has been to service 7 times for numerous reasons. First in June my sunroof would not close took it in I was told fuse was bad also took it back in 12-2008 cold air was coming thru was told sunroof was misaligned. 7-2008 only had 1800 miles check engine light came on was told intake manifold tuning valve failure check engine light came in again in 12-2008(7k miles) took to service was told transmission leak fault replaced adapter left the service department 10 mins later check engine light came on again I immediately called & asked to speak with the service manager & I took my vehicle back the next day which I was told they found no problem why check engine light was illuminated & found no problem stored code for short runner valve control to reset check engine light. Been having constant problems with brakes grinding & squeaking since 2k miles took car to service in 8-2008 (3k miles)complaining of brakes was told found no problem brakes were at 95% front & rear pads still heard brakes noise complained to customer service & took car back to service in 9-2008 went for test ride with service manager he stated it was my front pads brought car back they changed my front pads(4k miles).

At any given speed there is a "loss of communication" as it is described by the mancari's of oak lawn dealership, where I purchased the vehicle, as well as have it serviced, between the transmission and the computer. This is apparently a huge problem with this make and model of this vehicle. As you can see on the website below. I have had the trans shifter replaced, as well as as had the car "re-flashed" several times to no avail, and with no apparent solution in site. Many attempts have been made at reaching chrslyer - the manufacturer as suggested, but they seem to have no interest in dealing with customers beyond the sale of the vehicle. I wonder how many fatalilities will have to ensue before they do anything about what I am sure are known issues by now, concerning their vehicles. . Read more...

My 2005 300 has had multi-problems since I bought it brand new in 2005. 1st the water out housing has been replaced twice and Chrysler refuses to admit there is a problem with it, the gear shifter assembly has gone out on it at only 25k, that was not allowing me to shift from park to any gear. The oil pressure switch just went out today, I'm so sick of this car and most of all sick of Chrysler not accepting responsibility for any of this. Some of these issues pose a serious safety concern and will cause a tragic accident if not addressed promptly and repaired by Chrysler at no cost to the customer.

Day after purchase noticed load roar and steering wheel vibrating when the compressor for the air condition kicked on and off, called dealership and was told to keep driving maybe it will work itself out, maybe a kink. I am now on my fourth visit and the problem is progressing. The vehicle now stutters and almost dies each time the compressor kicks on and off. The dealership located in crystal city, mo is still figuring out how to handle the problem, which started the day after purchase.
