#4904 of 4913 2012 chrysler 300 limited
Dec 28, 2012 (2:26 pm)
Bought the car in April 2012 and had a computer recall on the car. They reprogrammed the computer a month later and it ran good until 2 days ago. Parked car at a store and when I returned to car it would not start. Every warning message that it had came up on screen including one that said pull off to side of the road that transmission may fail to shift and another said that the brake system might fail and cease working.
Has anyoneelse had this problem and what was the repair. Dealer is holding car per-Chrysler because they can not figure what is wrong. With no key faub in or around car the windshield wipers stayed on and lights stayed on.

Hello, rattling sound underneath in area of drivers seat. Was off/on now sound is constant varying in pitch based on speed and acceleration. Also,when I turn on a/c on high for 30 min or more,smell of rotten fish which goes away if air shut off. A/c not as cold as should be.Are there a/c line under car,near heat shield or otherwise? Car has 40000mi. on it. Does this sound like two different problems? I thought maybe a/c fitting might have loosened and caused leak of refrigerant and rattling. Thank you for your assistance. I am taking car in,would like some ideas,has anyone else had this?

#4910 of 4913 2013 Chrysler 300C Quality/Issues

I'm thinking about buying either a 2013 or 2014 Chrysler 300C in the next few months because I am a fan of RWD and they are few and far between unless you spend a ridiculous amount of money for a European model like a Mercedes or BMW. However, my concern is that in the past, Chrysler products always had good solid engines but suffered miserably from "fit and finish" issues. Could anyone address whether Chrysler vehicle quality and durability has improved from the past now that the company is managed by Fiat? Also, how has the fuel management system on the HEMI which deactivates the cylinders been performing? I'm curious about this operation since it proved to be a major problem back in the day when General Motors introduced it on the Cadillac with it's 8-6-4 arrangement. Please elaborate on any other issues with the 300C. Thanks for your help!

We have had our 300 limited for 1 year now. We got the limited because we did not want the Hemi which did not get good gas mileage. 30 -34 mpg on the HYWY. So we paid for all the upgrades that the Hemi had standard. Did have some problems with the computer(s) but it seems we are good. Car rides like a champ, heated and cooled cup holders along with heated steering wheel are a plus. Unlike many of the competitions cars, the passengers in the rear seat are very comfortable. Sun roof is a bit noisy when open, rear auto shade is nice.
Good luck with your new car.
