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.

2007 Dodge Charger Problems
Rear differential and axle seals are prone to repeated leaks.
Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.
A transmission fluid leak can develop at the electrical connector on the automatic transmission. Replacement of the electrical connector may be necessary to correct the leak.
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.

2007 Dodge Charger Reviews
First an last Mopar product I'll buy. Burns 1 quart of oil for 1,000 miles. (synthetic oil in 3.5L). Had to pay for transmission seal on electric connector to tranny. The transmission selector has also got stuck in park which is a well know defect that will strand you in a parking lot (look up pink little thing on internet). The door hinge squeaks horribly. The factory replacement hinge "new design" looks like it came off of a 1965-79 Impala and GM in the 60's and 70's all had pin problems. The hinge and labor is like $400 at dealer. Air conditioning is poor at best, dealer replaced evaporator, condenser and compressor and air still sucks. I told them finally to replace pressure cut out switch and now air is tolerable and I hope outside temperature does not go above 90. Dealer ripped off Chrysler for over a thousand dollars for the unneeded repair. The duct that feeds air through the console to back seat barely feeds any air. PS the dealer shop broke many of the plastic dash and console parts while doing repair and did not replace them and now I have strange noises from those areas. The cheap Philips brand bulbs(replaced 3 on right side) on rear turn signals kept burning out so I finally bought non-dealer Wagner replacements bulbs and now no blown bulbs. Engine say 3.5 high output HO is a joke, The acceleration is the worse for any car I have ever owned. Stop and ask any COP who has driven a Charger with 3.5 L engine. Ventnor City NJ has 2 of these and the COP told me he has never seen both operate in the same week and could not even engage in a pursuit with it because an electric Prius is faster. The black plastic pins that hold down the cowl and black plastic windshield trim pieces turn white (UV failure of plastic nice quality touch by Chrysler) and dealer rips you off for the price of replacement clips and molding. Save money and spray them with black Krylon Fusion paint in a rattle can. By the way all this happened before I had 25 thousand miles on odometer. Cars are my hobby for past 45 years, and the only saving grace about this car is that it is a pretty car and it handles good. I hate to say this but my next vehicle will be originating from a Japanese company.

Bought my 07 in 07 with 6 miles on it. Other than a small trany oil leak that warranty covered, this car is awesome. I still think the 3.5L should have Dual Exhaust. My car gets nice and toasty inside in the winter, but the A/C in the summer is, Ehhh... But I do get the Nice Car as well. 22in Black/Chrome Wheels on the Black Sapphire Paint, with HID Bulbs and Limo Tint windows all around... Damn Sexy indeed... I Also, love my car....
I did the same. Still love my car.
I don't see the problem. I have a 2007 charger black and alway get "nice car" 47,000 miles. Stop buying used stuff and order one new as I have and you break the car in and you will see the car is outstanding. Never had a problem with my charger.
