2008 Chrysler 300 Problems
A squeak may be heard from the base of the steering column while turning the steering wheel. The noise may be coming from the lower seal on the steering shaft. Lubrication of the seal will commonly correct this problem.
If you experience rough shift and/or shuddering during gear shifting, software updates to the powertrain control and transmission control modules (PCM and TCM) are available which may address these problems. On higher mileage vehicles, a mechanical failure may exhibit similar symptoms. Proper diagnoses should be performed before any repairs or software upgrades are attempted.
One or more of the power windows may become inoperative, it is commonly caused by failure of the window motor or a cable in the window regulator. The window motor & regulator may need to be replaced as assembly.

In a crash that deploys the driver's front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front driver's air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.
The ignition key may stick between desired positions in the ignition key cylinder mechanism, and may move between positions while driving. This can cause the engine to shut off and electrical accessories to stop operating. Dealers will repair this concern free of charge (a repair procedure is still under development as of the time of this writing).
This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators.

Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
2008 Chrysler 300 Reviews
Worst car I have ever bought. Have only had the car 2 months and has left me on the side of the road 3 times. Now the wireless control module out and part backordered for over a month. Will be without my car for that long and dealer tells me to go rent a car.
Junk brake rotors and junk tires spells warranty work and thats bad business thats why Chrysler is still in a hole.
Got a 300C used in 2012 absolutely love this car very gorgeous looking and totally peppy. Rides fantastic Uconnect is best with dash screen the 20" chrome wheels makes look elegance with sweet looks of car. I done nothing but changed fluid, oil, spark plugs and replaced set of brakes at 114,000 miles believe it is a great car.
