5/10/2017 - SOUTH WINDSOR, CT
THE CONTACT OWNS A 2006 CHRYSLER 300C. WHILE DRIVING 65 MPH, THE VEHICLE STALLED WITHOUT WARNING. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS, THE VEHICLE INDEPENDENTLY RESTARTED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER WHERE IT WAS DIAGNOSED THAT THE BATTERY AND IGNITION MODULE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED, AND THE VEHICLE NEEDED A TUNE-UP. THE VEHICLE WAS REPAIRED; HOWEVER, THE FAILURE RECURRED. THE CONTACT STATED THAT THE FAILURE WAS INTERMITTENT. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOT NOTIFIED OF THE FAILURES. THE APPROXIMATE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 120,000.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

5/5/2017 - RIALTO, CA
EVERY TIME I FILL UP MY GAS TANK MY 2006 CHRYSLER 300C ENDS UP TURNING OFF AT ANY STOP, RED LIGHT, OR WHEN I AM SLOWING DOWN. I ALWAYS END UP STOPPING TRAFFIC BECAUSE OF IT. THE VEHICLE ENDS UP TURNING BACK ON AFTER A FEW TIMES OF TRYING TO TURN IT ON. I HAVE HAD PEOPLE MAKE SCENES AT MY WINDOW DUE TO THIS. I HAVE READ ONLINE BLOGS OF CHRYSLER OWNERS THAT HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. THEY GO TO THE DEALER AND REPLACE THE FUEL TANK. I HAVE CALLED AUTO PARTS STORES AND THE FUEL TANK IS PRETTY PRICEY. THERE ARE MANY MORE COMPLAINTS ON 300CFORUMS.COM

ENGINE

4/22/2017 - RENTON, WA
MY 2006 CHRYSLER 300C SRT8 6.1L ENGINE STALLS RANDOMLY WHEN STOPPED, COMING TO A STOP OR CRUISING SPEED. SOMETIMES IT'LL TAKE MONTHS FOR REOCCURRENCE THEN OUT OF NOWHERE IT HAPPENS WHILE, ENGINE STALLED. HAPPENS WHILE MAKE A TURN AT A LIGHT ALSO. STARTS BACK UP AND SOMETIMES STALLS INSTANTLY. AFTER LIKE THE THIRD STALL CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AND THE ONLY FAULT CODE IS P0700. BOUGHT THE CAR IN 2015 AND LESS THAN TWO MONTHS LATER IS WHEN I EXPERIENCED MY FIRST OCCURRENCE. TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP THREE TIMES THAT YEAR AND THEY SAID THEY COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM OR FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG. ABOUT FIVE MONTHS LATER (2016) IT HAPPENS AGAIN, ENGINE STALLS OUT OF NOWHERE ON THE FREEWAY. THIS TIME IT WOULDN'T START SO I HAD IT TOWED BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP. AFTER TWO MONTHS OF THEM HAVING MY CAR THEY SAID IT WAS THE TRANSMISSION CONTROL MODULE SO I AGREED TO REPLACE IT. TWO MONTHS LATER SAME THING AGAIN SO OBVIOUSLY THE TRANSMISSION CONTROL MODULE WASN'T THE PROBLEM. MIGHT I ADD THAT RANDOMLY WHILE DRIVING THERE IS A HARD "BUCK" FROM THE TRANSMISSION, LIKE IT WANTS TO LOCK UP. I'VE BEEN IN AND OUT OF THE DEALERSHIP WITH THIS PROBLEM FOR TWO YEARS NOW AND CHRYSLER CLAIMS TO NOT KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. I AM TERRIFIED EVERY TIME I'M IN THIS VEHICLE. I FEEL IT IS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. I'M STILL PAYING FOR THIS CAR BUT NEED TO KNOW WHAT THE ISSUE IS AND HOW TO SOLVE IT. DEALERSHIP SAYS THERE IS NO RECALLS OR UPDATES AVAILABLE FOR MY CAR.

MY SRT8 WILL STALL SHORTLY AFTER FILLING UP WITH FUEL. AT THE MOMENT OF STALLING, OBVIOUSLY THE POWER STEERING AND POWER BRAKES FAIL TO WORK, WHICH IS VERY DANGEROUS IRREGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU ARE....
