You are in the Chrysler 300/300C/300C SRT-8
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler 300, Sedan

I have used K & N filters for all my vehicles and NEVER had a problem with them period. Carbs or Injected, every one performed flawlessly and every one did increase horsepower and mileage. I have recommended these for years to anyone who will listen and THEY have had flawless performance. My latest is a 2008 Honda Ridgeline, 15.5 mpg to 19.9 in town, (63 Impala 383 Demon Carb, 2000 Mercury Sable injected, 2003 GMC Sonoma injected, 2008 American Iron Horse carb. also have them)
I agree that the cleaning may be an issue as folks are cleaning them way :too often. Once every 6 months, "clean and dry it completely, oil it lightly" then put it in. The thing will last 1,000,000 miles. My friend Dock just put one in his 300 and it's doing great...better mileage and more power.
Thanks for the opportunity to share info and experience. My personal experience with Nissan is .....Well (I am not allowed to use bad language) not very good. My Nissan Maxima SE 2001 (traded for the Honda) was a sensor/EGR valve eater with paper elements or K&N, premium fuel an all.

It must have been yellow! If all it takes is a bunch of whiners to make him change vehicles, who else is going to manipulate him? He has to be the first president to let a group of fanatics dictate what he should drive. Last time I checked, most presidents get driven around in a limo with lots of secret service protection anyway. Are those same "environmentalist" also concerned with the MPG rating of Air force One? The little photo-op in NYC was reported to cost about $200,000.00.
#4894 of 4908 300C Steering Noise Rubbing
Mar 12, 2010 (8:21 am)
My wife have been complaining about a rubbing noise in her steering for a bit on her 2005 (I believe) 300C. We took it into the dealer and they say the steering column is somehow bent. They suspect from mishandling when work was being done on the car. He said he's seen this happen when someone pulled the dash and didn't properly support the steering wheel. Well, the part is something over $1K. As far as I know, we've never had anything other than tires, alignment, and fluid service done elsewhere on that car. Anyone seen this before?

The whole point of Nitrogen is to stop the slow leaks that are inevitable. Many aluminum rims or valves will slowly leak air. Nitrogen molecules are larger then oxygen, so they don't have that same opportunity to leak through the rims, etc.
They say better mileage because a properly inflated tire will provide EXTREMELY MARGINALLY better mileage. This is based on the assumption that you have regular air in your tires, and DON'T check the pressure to make sure it is up.
32lbs nitrogen or 32lbs regular air will provide the exact same ride, and the exact same gas mileage.
SO.....check your tires frequently and fill with whatever is available.
#4896 of 4908 'Outtie' Door Dings
Sep 07, 2011 (8:18 pm)
I had an "outtie" door ding appear suddenly one day just after opening and closing the driver's window on a New 2011 Chrysler 300C. I thought I had been hit by a shopping cart, but my dent doctor said it was an 'outtie' and that something in the door panel dented the door from the inside. Most likely a loose screw or other part from the window regulator. The dent doctor fixed the dent, but, the Chrysler dealer could not find the cause after removing the interior trim panel covering the window regulator. There was another panel underneath this one, but they did not remove it. They did take out the window and could not see anything that would hit the door.
Anyone have any experience with something like this? I had one once before on the trunk of my Mercedes when I put a large suitcase in the trunk and slammed the trunk shut without realizing the interference.
Any help would be appreciated.
#4897 of 4908 300C Executive - When?
Oct 23, 2011 (9:27 pm)
I have heard rumors about an upcoming Executive edition with dramatically upgraded interior and, I think, exterior trim. Does anyone know if it is still coming, and when? Also, when will they have the 8-speed trans with the V-8?

Since I purchased my Chrysler 300 Touring used, it has never been in an accident, right off the bat it had problems. It was under a warranty, kept taking it to the dealership, they kept telling me there was nothing wrong, warranty expired, took car to my mechanic plus another reputable repair shop and found out this vehicle had problems which include tire rods, strut arms, lwr control arm, shift cylinoid, light that lit up the nag/cd/radio etc., went out, not a fuse problem, but elec pblm, and the list goes on. It appears that the dealrshp new the prblms but wld not take care of it. Went bk to dlrshp and voiced my concerns/issues, but to no avail. I've already paid out $$$$ on this vehicle. Filed a complaint w/BBB. Chrysler has no recall or silent recalls on these vehicles. One would think there would be w/all of the pblms w/these vehicles. Something shld be done. Unless all these owners have $$$$ to throw away...I do not. I feel I have bght a lemon, but this same dlrship continues to say these cars R top of the line. REALLY. WHO ARE YOU KIDDING. In my town, the employees of this dlrshp R not driving these TOP OF THE LINE Vehicles they R trying to sell their customers. Sign Will Not Buy Another One if You paid me $$$$$$. I am still paying off this car.
#4901 of 4908 When is the 8-speed auto going into the V-8?
Aug 23, 2012 (4:47 pm)
Does anyone know when (and if) they are going to do this upgrade? I just read in R/T that it won't be here at the introduction of the 2013 models.
