Steering is also very reactive too. I fear for the worst, but what the hell. On a scale from 1 to ten this car rates 1000!!! When car was shut off and doors closed, dash stayed on. Hi Forum, I'm from Bradenton Fl and my 2008 Chrysler 300 radio radio, navigation, Satelite radio goes blank after 30 seconds and then shuts off after another 10 seconds. Chrysler is explicably compounds this stall safety problem by not providing the most efficient mechanical expertise available and swiftly correct this safety issue as an issue to consumers for satisfactory of this safety hazard.
Before I take this expensive option I hoped one of you may have an idea I could try to fix it. In the year that I have owned it, this has happened at lower speeds but less frequently. The contact had not experienced a failure. I guess I should pull over and find out. The Chrysler 300C is the luxury version of the Chrysler 300, only with the addition of a standard Hemi V8. But I like the seat warmers in the winter! Although, the car has left me stranded two times; the radio frequency device in the tires failed two times within a month of each other. If I had to choose any Chrysler product excluding the Viper, the 300 is what I'd choose.
I can't afford to keep the car and I can't sell it. I had to rent a trailer to bring it home 50+ miles away from where we live. Not widely known, but still offered on some models today. That cars still a little too new to be having problems like that. I believe the keyless ignition system has a horrific defect.
Not a rocket but far better than the base V6. As my husband and I were leaving a childhood cancer awareness benefit, my alternator failed. The double sided integrated key, I believe, is losing contact with the integral ignition switch which also contributes to inconsistent starting procedure. At the time I never thought I would keep the car more than 4 years, but got the coverage anyway. To add insult to injury, they are also saying that my claim does not meet the criteria to be reimbursed for the towing bill because the original warranty on the car has expired. It did not make the noise again, but did have a much less distressing noise, which he said might be the water pump bearings.
Over the past 10,000 miles this vehicle has just become a service and repair nightmare. The 4th transmission is now in. When I turned 21 a few years ago I finally signed the papers and became the owner of my very own Chrysler 300 with a 5. It is a real head-turner. The 30 gb hard drive store lots of music and pictures. For that brief moment I prayed to the Chrysler Gods that my luck may not be this bad. It's my understanding that some other Chrysler vehicles have been recalled for this problem.
He calls the Chrysler Gods and they must have giggled at the cruel trick they played sending an already ruined transmission. The car would also seem like it wanted to die at low speeds. Hands free stopped working, no sound from speakers. When I got there I grabbed some duct tape and a garbage bag and sealed it as best I could. Performance-wise, normally Chrysler V6s have had trouble moving Chryslers heavy cars.
I bought at 2013 300C. A bonus is this car has enough power to satisfy the motorhead in me. So far it hasn't stalled, but it makes me nervous. The extra power of the 3. The man arrived in 2 hours and tried to check it out, but it was not even turning over. Only to get another motor that will eventually fail or drive the car until I need another transmission. I accelerate through the toll and the car won't go into overdrive.
Called dealer, they said turn off car and have it towed. I was like I did not have a clutch in the car. But you can run 87 octane in the V6s vs. My concern is I may not get my money's worth from the warranty. Sound system is great and is able to connect to satellite radio. My car did not move.
I'm hoping for a new transmission or engine soon. My car suddenly was jerking crazy and the engine light came on the car. I tried to crank the car once more and nothing. Thank the Lord the policeman took us to a restaurant to stay cool, as it was almost 100 degrees outside. I had to pull over to the road side thru traffic and the car had to restart the car. Hoever once the car has started it always starts first time for the rest of the day but the fault usually returns the following day? If that doesn't fix it, I am out of options since I will be an entire new front end.
