The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled multiple times. The oil sensor light also illuminated each time the vehicle stalled. The oil was changed twice by a local mechanic and the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who was unable to replicate nor diagnose the failure. The contact was unable to pass an inspection due to the vehicle having a fractured passenger side tie rod. An authorized dealer diagnosed and repaired the right tie rod.

Chrysler 300c 2006, outer tie rod broke at 30k and again at 37k miles. I bought car new, and it always had a vibration dealer told me at all complaints there was nothing wrong and it was tires. Replaced/changed tires after 30k tie rod change, and it did little for vibration. On state inspection today, was shown that tie rod had 1/2 inch of play on replacement mopar part. Search online finds that this is a common complaint.

On June 11, 2009 I went in to have tires put on my 2006 Chrysler 300 at southern tire, lexington park, maryland. The mechanic called me to inform me that the inner tie rods needed to be replaced prior to putting tires on the vehicle, and that he had called the local dealership, park Dodge, Chrysler Jeep and was told that the part was on back order for 6 months and there was a total of 3,123 on back order. I went to the dealership myself the same evening after speaking with the parts manager by phone and ordered the part ( p/n 68028831ac) but was told the same thing. He informed me that I should call the customer care line at Chrysler for further assistance. I called the customer care line that evening to express my concerns and was told that because of the state of Chrysler I should understand. I expressed to ask a customer to wait 6 months for a part was unreasonable. I was told to give them 48 hours to make a decision as to how to help me and some one would contact me. On June 12th I arrived home and there was a message on my answering machine stating that Chrysler would not be able to assist me with a rental or loaner car because my car is out of warranty (92,000 miles). I called the customer care center and asked to speak with a supervisor. The supervisor informed me that they would have to contact the dealership and that she would call me back the next working day. I received no call. I continued to call around and go onto the internet in search of the part and to no avail it was not found. Chrysler has told me it is on national back order and they are working to get the part as soon as they can but there is nothing they can do for me. I drive almost 150 miles a day to work. My front tires are getting very bad and the left one is "coupling" according to the mechanic. I don't feel safe in the vehicle. Why are there so many parts on backorder and none in the country if this is not an issue with this make and model vehicle?.

The vehicle is not under warranty; therefore, the manufacturer will not cover the cost of the repair. The contact stated that a crash could occur while driving due to the failure. The current mileage was 40,000 and failure mileage was 39,000.

A/c has never ran cold since we purchased this vehicle, we went to the dealer numerous times over the years to see if it was a recall on this vehicle, but each time the dealer claimed no recall on the 2005 Chrysler 300c a/c system, we even checked the web for recalls but we found nothing. I found the problem myself in July 2005, it seems that this vehicle came with bad schrader valves high and low, over the years I just added freon, but now the leak is so bad it won't hold a charge more than 5 days, went back to the dealer who claimed the a/c system was not under warranty and we would have to pay for a full evac of the system, replacement of the bad schrader valves plus labor and taxes. We choose not to have the work done because of the expense involved. Over the years we have had to replace both lower tie rod ends, the tie rod ends that came with the vehicle look really cheap as well as the after market parts. We had the stability control system worked on twice, each time just before the stability light come on we notice the dash lights flicker constantly, the dash lights has always flickered on this vehicle. The dealer was notified of this problem, but claims replacing the stability part in the steering column would resolve this issue, as of today June 20, 2012 the dash lights are flickering again which means another trip to the dealer.
