Chrysler 300M Problems
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.
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.
A damaged cam position sensor (or its wires and connector) can cause intermittent stalling, stumbles, or hard starting.
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.
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.

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.
just had to replace transmission control module and solenoid cost 1031 dollars at 135000 miles.
I own a 99 300M. I love the car im just having so many problems. First the coolant resevre goes bad with a crack from heat. Then the coolant system loses pressure. Now the front seal on the transmission is going bad and im leaking fluid. I also now have noticed that i have water leaking from somewhere in the front of the car. Its falling down on the caddilac converter and making tons of white smoke when the car heats up. All in all I like the car and have added alot of cool extras like 6 tvs a gator top and bra stereo system amps and box. I just hate the fact that now that ive put these items in the car that now i have these problems.
OK so I bought a 2001 300m about 4 months ago for $400 YES $400, it needed a tranny replaced as the one in it was slipping, go into gear and then come out and give it a little gas a away it goes again. Well car has about 200K miles on it and it also needs all new front suspension, rattles when drove bad in the front. Not a biggie as it will cost about $400 for all new ready struts and bushings, control arms, sway bar links and inner/outer tie rod ends. EVERYTHING plus labor to put them on.
So got the tranny in and drives great, still gotta do the front suspension though. When they put the tranny in they didn't adjust something as the shifter is hard going back into park. So gotta get that fixed.. And as of 2 days ago I plugged in the block heater to test it and see if it worked and when I plugged it in it kinda smoked at the plug, quickly unplugged it and left it alone. Next day son drove it to work and he came home and said it tried to stall 2 times on his trip home, SO i went out and started it and seemed fine but as I put it into reverse the MOTOR started running rough and RPMs went up and down and then stalled, I took it to auto zone and tested it for engine light on and came back with code P1495 , So this could be 1 of 3 things one being the , pump solenoid defective ,,open or shorted circuit or ECM defective. So now I gotta get that fixed one I know what's causing all this.
Other than this stuff the car looks luxury to me, interior is real nice and everything works, full power everything and heated seats work great. Clean car just gotta fix the issue stuff.
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.
