problem #4

Mar 312012

300C Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,780 miles


Had heard about this problem from a friend who has the same year, make, and model, however, until I had the problem myself, never thought much about it. However, Saturday morning when my wife and I were attempting to leave home on a road trip, and the gear shift would not move out of park, it hit home! I went on-line to "just answer. Chrysler", paid $18.00 to find a work around for the problem, (which was the by-pass button) which didn't work. However, I did find out about recall #K39 Chrysler issued for certain VINs on this model.

However, this morning, after having the vehicle towed to the local Chrysler dealer in Ft Walton Beach, FL, as expected, I was told that the recall did not cover my VIN! (go figure!)

Did I mention that this vehicle has been garaged since we bought it? And since we have three other vehicles for two people, we don't drive this one that much!

Guess what, I'll NEVER buy another Chrysler product!

Update from Apr 3, 2012: Sent Chrysler an e-mail yesterday concerning a national recall for this problem. Though I was not expecting a response, I got one!

Final result, instead of having to pay over $400.00 for the repair, I agreed to pay the first $100.00 and Chrysler paid the rest! However, I still think there should be a national recall for ALL 07 Chrysler 300c models to correct this manufacturing defect!

Believe it or not, the dealer had the repair kit on hand (amazingly), my car was repaired the same day and it's back in our garage!

300C V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,428 miles

I have 2007 Chrysler. shift gear not operable, stays in park. called Chrysler for help! All they could advise was to pay for it and put in a good will request to see if I may have assistance on paying for a mechanical issue that they have had on other 300 Chrysler vehicles. Trying to get a hold of someone that could help is awful. Chrysler has not helped I will never recommend another Chrysler to anyone. they also advised because of mileage that the vehicle is not under warranty anymore. This is not fair for a mechanical problem that they have on their side. again, it is a "300 Chrysler 2007"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks for nothing Chrysler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

300C 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,355 miles

Shifter got stuck in park and would not move. Had to get it towed to dealership where they charged me $479.00 dollars to fix. After reading some of the posts here it seems this is an ongoing problem with Chrysler 300's.

300C 5.7L V8 Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,000 miles

I love my 2007 Chrysler 300C Hemi. That's why when I tried to take it out of park and put it in drive and could not, I was devastated! The car only had 33000 miles on it and had performed flawlessly up to that point. I called the dealership and since it was under warranty, they said no problem and sent a tow truck to pick it up. At the dealership, the service manager admitted to me that he has personally seen this problem on the 300 several times. He told me to document the problem, and if I have the problem again after warranty expiration to show documentation at that time. He also said he personally thought Chryslers Corp. should do a recall on the "problem". The "problem" is a small pin in the shifter that breaks, causing the transmission to be stuck in park.
