I own a 1999 Chrysler 300M.  It only has 44,500 miles on it.  I have had nothing but problems with it. Electric windows have had to be repaired several times as they won't roll down, Alternator needed to be replaced, new radiator put in at about 40,000 miles, now I'm having to have a new starter installed and possibly new fly wheel!! I'm wondering if anyone else out there has experienced these kind of problems?  Or did I buy a brand new lemon from the dealer?  Can't wait for it to be fixed so I can get rid of it and by a Toyota or Honda!!!

I love my '99 300M...so much in fact that, even tho I bought a new car (2004 Volvo S80) I am keeping my 1999 300M...1st year of a classic American car.  I had a little trouble with the electric windows but the car is faithful, reliable, and still turns heads.

I know the feeling.  I have a 1999 300M that now has 70,000 miles on it.  Only one window works, After a recent accident it just cuts out going down the road I get an error saying the battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts, not true.  I can't wait to get rid of it either, but who will give me anything for it?  What a beautiful piece of junk

Yes, I have a 99 300M. I love to drive it, especially on the open road. Its a really fun car to drive as you know. However, I have had electrical problems with mine too. Those windows always messing up. The sun roof and those lights flickering real fast just like you said. Plus, it does not start up now until I try it like 10 times in a row. I am thinking starter, sensor or that blasted ughhhhhh ignition core. What do you think? I mean other than getting a Toyota or something?

I too own a 1999 300M.  Piece of junk.  at 37,000 miles the chrome rims deteriorated on the inside of the rim that the tires would not seal.  All 4 window regulators have been replaced, the transmission has been replaced 3 times, entire air conditioning system has been replaced and now the blower motor went bad.  I hate this car.

I also have had nothing but problems.  I bought my 1999 300m used with 40,000 miles. Luckily I also purchased an extended warranty.  In one year I have put approximately 23,ooo miles on it.
Two days after buying had it back in shop for a new a/c compressor. It also has had two front wheel bearings, some type of sensor and something with the starter had to be replaced.  Tomorrow it is going back into the shop.  ABS and traction control come on going down interstate.  After a while the lights go off, engine cuts out and right back on.  Mechanic told me a wheel speed sensor is bad along with the alternator.
I'm sure there is other things that have been repaired, just can't remember.
I'm glad to know I'm not the only one having these problems.  I can't wait to be able to get rid of it.
