2012 Chrysler 300 Problems

PCM/TCM Software Updates May Address Shifting Problems

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.

Rear differential and axle seals are prone to repeated leaks.

Honk, Hiss, or Groan Noise From when Steering at Low Speeds
