If you read your owners manual it states the speed control system maintains speed up and down hills.A slight speed change on moderate hills is normal.Most people questions could be answered if they read their owners manual.

Although you're both right, I still don't have my answer. Just went out to check the manual and it does state the system will maintain speed uphill and downhill. It also states that the FOUR speed transmission may downshift to maintain speed. Doesn't say what the Hemi's FIVE speed will do. Mine doesn't downshift and it doesn't maintain speed downhill so looks like I have a question for the dealer at the 24K check.....

The manual does mention autostick mode.It should work with any transmission 3-4-5 speeds.The purpose of cruise control is to keep the speed you set.Like the manual says on moderate hills speed will change.If you speed control is not holding the speed you set going up or down hills that aren't steep,then you do have issue with your cruise control.I had a Eagle Vision that wouldn't hold speed going up hills,and they changed the module and took care of the problem.Good luck.

We have had our 2002 300 for 2 years (second owners). After the first few weeks of excitement wore off, we noticed that the steering wheel shimmies or shakes while driving around 40 miles and up. When we asked the dealership about it, we were told it was the "Sports Model" and that happens. Over time it go progressively worse, specially with tire rotations. We then refused rotations as it made the shimmying worse. We then had a local repair shop replace the brakes and rotate the tires. This helped somewhat, but not noticeably. Then we changed the rotors and it made a big difference! But still the minor steering wheel shimmy. Does anyone else have this??? It makes your hands and wrists ache when you are on a long trip. Any suggestions???

I had this problem when I had my '94 Eagle Vision.I had three tires that the belts shifted in the tire.It felt like you were driving with a flat tire.When you mention that rotations made it worse,makes me think you have the same problem.You did a elimination with the brakes and rotors,so
I would check your tires.If thats not it,check the CV joints on your front axle.I'm assuming your talking about a 300M.

Did a test this morning on a steep hill. Yes, the 5-speed tranny will downshift. Unfortunately it did that when I was 10 mph over the set speed. Here in OK they have zero tolerance on 75MPH roads so that won't work for me,unless I set the cruise at under 70MPH, Wonder if you can reprogram the trip speed for downshifting....
