on 9/24/2002, my catalytic converter blew out the welded seam. making a deafening sound inside the car. upon inspection of the vehicle the next day they told me the catalytic converter blew out the seam on the top. after the parts department ordered a new catalytic converter from atlanta, they told me it would be in the next day. however, in the mean time they checked with chrysler service contract i have for 100,000 miles or 3 years did not cover the part, however it was covered by a 80,000 mile warranty. which i was 4,600 miles past. i average about 3-4000 miles a month in my job. then the next day when i called to check on the car to see if it was finished, they told me the part was on national backorder. i was renting a car at the time for $36.99 a day. so i called chrysler and told them of the situation on 9/26/2002, they said since it was on national backorder that the situation was different and they would help me out by paying for 1/2 the rental of the car. which i agreed was some what fair. so i callde the dealer back on monday and he said the part was still not in, didn't know for sure when it would be in and then later that day they ssaid they had a promise date of 10/7/2002 of shipment. it finally came in on 10/4/2002. which they finished fixing it by closing time that day. the service manager looked at the catalytic converter and said he would confirm quote"that this has been leaking for quite some time now and was not just an overnight happening by the corrosion of the part. so i feel a full refund is in order for parts, labor and car rental. the service manager "ricky hendrix" said he would confirm this with any one that needed to know. please advise! mr

purchased 2003 chrysler 300m in aug 05, with 9,500 miles. from the beginning engine light came on, was reset; in addition, gas gauge and light flicker. in aug 2006, on a trip to ca light came on and at one point car would not start immediately. stopped at paso robles dealer who reset code. on i!0, outside san bernadino, in the third lane of heavy traffic, the car died with on warning other than the check engine light. due to the alertness of the tractor trailer truck driver on my right, i was able to glide off the highway without causing a massive pileup. once home i had the original dealer replace the sensor. contacted chrysler, received a phone call from a haughty young man - chrysler will not pay. since then i have had to replace one o2 sensor and now the catalytic converter is gone. chrysler refuses to cover these under the extended warranty. my dealer found a way to cover the sensor and now the catalytic converter. in the meantime my car sits in the driveway, utterly useless. in addition, this is not the first time that i have had problems with chrysler products: dodge lancer stopped on two occasions on lightly traveled highway. replaced two o2 sensors on two separate intrepids and a dodge caravan. also replaced transmission sped sensors on the 97 intrepid and the 00 caravan. the snippy phone call was the last straw. they are not interested in improving their product or in satisfying their customers. i am through with chrysler after thirty years! *tr
