The engine started ticking noticeably on the upper right side of the engine. The noise was typical of a lifter or worn rocker arm. About a month earlier the car had a shifting problem with the automatic transmission on an interstate highway under acceleration. The car was checked for the transmission problem at a Chrysler dealership but nothing was found after diagnostic testing was completed they did advise they found the strut bushings were in need of replacement. After hearing the engine noises the car was again taken to the Chrysler dealership. Both sides of the engine had the rocker arm assemblies replaced. The bushings for the struts were replaced. Both of the tie rod ends were found to be in need of replacement while they were trying to realign the front end. The alignment was needed after replacing the strut bushings. The car was well maintained and oil changes & lubes were done at or near every 3,500 miles. There are a massive amount of replacements/repairs being done for these particular parts failing at a low mileage. These parts are failing prematurely and Chrysler should take the initiative & recall these components. Reimbursing customers that have become dissatisfied with their cars and it's manufacturer are being burdened with unnecessary repair costs. I was fortunate enough to have purchased an extended warranty which covered all the costs (over $2,000. 00) . I still had to pay the deductible. Nhtsa needs to find out what is happening and hold the manufacturer accountable. This was the first time I had to have repairs done since purchasing the car in 2008 with about 30,000 miles on the odometer. Dependability is one of the most important parts of owning a car and we all pay a lot of money to purchase/lease them. Paying for routine maintenance is expected but exorbitant repair costs are unacceptable when a car is properly cared for and not abused.

I recently had new tires mounted on my vehicle and was told that the tire rods were worn badly. I just passed 42,000 miles on my vehicle. I was told by my mechanic that this has been an issue on many Chrysler 300 models around the same mileage. There are even two options for repair. You can have the tie rods replaced with standard equipment but will most likely have the same issue or Chrysler came out with an upgraded replacement with a lifetime warranty. Obviously Chrysler knows that this is an issue and should be an actual recall. I will be having the tie rods replaced tomorrow.

At 36,000 miles the inner tie rods are worn and very loose. Outters are worn but not as badly. Car is out of warranty (over 36 months). When I called the dealer they said this is a common problem and they have seen it happen at less than 36,000 miles. Failure consequences will be complete loss of steering control and accidents. This a serious and dangerous manufacturing defect and should be addressed immediately.

Took car in for oil change and to have front end shaking checked out. Was informed that the front tie rod was defective. Since I had an extended Chrysler warranty I took it to the local dealership for repair and found that it needed replacement but was not covered under the warranty. This is a 2006 vehicle with under 50,000 miles. Never had a tie rod go bad in anything else I've owned--and it looks like I'm not the only one.

On Feb. 27,2008 I had to have both tie rod ends replaced on my 2006 Chrysler 300. During my auto shop's search for replacement parts we discovered that the Dodge dealer in worcester MA. Had 174 tie rod ends on backorder. This leads me to believe that if there is no recall maybe there should be.
