CHRYSLER 300 DEALER PROBLEM

2007 Chrysler 300 • 73,347 miles

To whom it may concern,

Hi, my name is MaryJo A. Atoigue and I'm a proud owner of a Chrysler 300. Here's my problem on graduation I was given the option of a brand new car/truck, or a party. I chose to get a vehicle. At my own choice I chose the car that first caught my eye was a Chrysler 300. So it was bought for me cashed out. It's a perfect car for me; I cherished it since I drove it out of the dealers’ lot (Service, oil change, break inspections, tire replacement, battery replacement, wiper blade replacement, and etc.) After all TLC to my vehicle it has been giving me problems. First my shifter didn't move out of parked gear, so I've paid to get the part and job done by the dealer near me, then months later my battery goes out. So I buy a brand new battery and get it installed by the dealer near me, then as I'm driving when the vehicle shifts to next gear there's a hard jerk on the vehicle. So again I take it to the dealer and then they say its normal. Now here's my biggest problem. It’s my Chrysler and now its temperature for the motor is starting to raise pass the half mark on the gauge, but it hasn't reached hot. The thermostat stat has already been changed but still doing the same, so now the service tech is saying it could be my water pump. So this is where I'm asking for help. With all these problems I've been having with this car that I keep spending on, I'm asking with my mileage and maintenance that I've been doing is it possible that the water pump has to be replaced? And if so, why? If not, is this car recalled or what is recalled on my car? Please help me figure out what to do because I've spent way too much money already on this car and I'm the only driver and it was cashed out brand new from the dealers’ lot. "Now my Chrysler 300 is just parked in my garage because of the problems I've been having."

Unless the pump is leaking, I doubt it. They solved that issue years ago.

I would get a second opinion before proceeding. Whether you use a private shop, which I reccomend, or another dealer, get it re checked.

I think along the lines of a bad thermostat or a clogged radiator
