To be honest my 300C might have been one of the first thousand or even hundred made. I got my 300C on April 14, 2004. I'm sure I was among the first 1-500 normal class people to be driving one on the road. My 300C ran perfect besides a little high pitch whistling or ringing when I'm turning the wheels after backing out from my drive-way, a little vibration from seemed to be between the steering wheel and gauges; which later stopped happening, and lastly some annoying squeaking sounds coming from the moon roof while it was tilted or closed but not when fully opened; this also so to speak "fixed itself" other then that I figured I faired well with these minor "new car syndrome" problems. At about 6,000 miles I noticed that I had to crank the starter a little more then normal to get it to start. Over time the car wouldn't even start no matter how long I cranked it until I were to stop cranking then crank again then the car would start. Not to much longer following this cranking the ESP light would stay on after these crank starts. To turn the light off all I had to do was turn the car off then on again. At times this problem seems to get worse then better, then worse, then better. I've taken it to the dealership three times and their response was either " it needed a new software update and is running fine now, or we can't make the problem happen (duplicate it). A bit confused I been living with it. At times the car would have a hard time starting in the morning and presently starts fine in the morning but has issues starting after driving between 10minutes-hours letting it sit for approx. 20min. or longer till almost fully cooled. I know this time span is large but I got the issue in my mind down to a science too bad DC or the DC dealership doesn't have a clue. My last resort is to take this car one last time during next oil change and let them know that to let it cool for about an hour then let me come back with a tech watching me and start the car so that they can see the issue with their own eyes. If that doesn't work or DC gives me a hard time I going for the lemon, I've done the lemon before on a 2001 honda prelude that had its transmission replaced 4 times before I said put up or shut up, so they put up. I will never by a Honda every again, this problem happened after the first 8,000 miles. My Chrysler 300C currently has 10,797 miles on it and I'm waiting for my next oil change due 12,053. Let me know what you guys think of this whole mess!
