Does your ‘05 Chrysler 300 track straight?

    Was told by dealer, after alignment, my car was one of the better
    steering '05 300's they have driven, that all 05 Chrysler 300's follow
    the crown of the road and do not track straight. Service manager said
    he could make it track straight but it would wear out the tires. Had
    the alignment checked by an independent alignment shop, made 2 small
    adjustment but everything is lined up. I'm an old foggy and this was
    to be my last car but I can hardly stand to drive this one. Driving
    this car reminds me of driving off-road in a 4 wheeler except I'm on
    the freeway in a ‘05 300. This car goes whatever way the road tilts,
    requires constant steering adjustments and I mean constant. Does
    anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions of how
    to correct this problem?

  2. I'm aware of a complaint with alignment problems with the 300 but mine seems
    to be just fine.

    Do a google search on this ng. This problem was discussed a couple of
    months ago, and, IIRC, there was a link to some definitive info. on a
    repair kit and/or TSB that DC has already come out with for this
    problem. I'll let you rediscover the details.

    But it should have been fixed for the 2005 model...shouldn't it?

  5. And does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

    You'd think so, Jim. However, there were some really nuisance problems
    on the LH cars that they let go year after year of production.

  7. Wasn't the 300 launched as a 2005? The first model yera change will be the
    06.

  8. 2005 is the first model year for this car. Sounds like another
    "first-model-year bug".
