2000 Chrysler 300M Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

Engine -- Verified

A damaged cam position sensor (or its wires and connector) can cause intermittent stalling, stumbles, or hard starting.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Poor output from the heater and/or engine overheating can be caused by air left in the cooling system after the cooling system has been serviced. Our technicians tell us the proper coolant fill procedure should be used to prevent this problem from occurring.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Door weatherstrips mounted on the body tend to shrink with age, leaving gaps that can create wind noise or allow water to leak into the car. Our technicians suggest the door weatherstrips should be replaced to correct these issues.

2000 Chrysler 300M Reviews

I have a '00 300M and I have had it for almost two on my b-day in July. I have not had many problems with my car but when I bought my car in '10 it ran hot because the fan wasn't cooln the engine so they fixed it then a year late my belt broke twice replaced it and ever thing was good. In '11 of Nov. 23 my car quick on me and to this day it still isn't running. I went from a starter to a battier, to spark plugs. Whatelse do I need to do to drive my car again.

My car currently has about 163,000 miles. Only issues I've had are that the display for the interior temperature control does not work unless its below freezing outside, passenger seat heater doesn't work, passenger side ball bearings went out 2 years ago, and now driver's side bearings are bad. I also needed a new alternator and radiator this year. But, considering the age and high mileage (and 2 near-total wrecks), these things are expected. I live in No. Minnesota, where we are below zero for 4-5 months straight. This car is parked outside with no engine heater yet has ALWAYS cranked right up for me. An excellent car.

daughter wrecked mine about 5 years ago she took out 9 trees did over 8000 dollars worth of damage and her and her friend came out with out a scratch, still driving it with close to 200,000 miles on it.

Owned for over 8 years now and 142,000 miles. Car has done really well for us. Some expected repairs after 100,000. Engine, transmission, heat/AC, alternator, and starter have all been trouble free. Power door lock actuators had to be replaced, as did sway bar links. Really everything still works on the car though considering all the options it has.

Best Bang for the Buck.
