Questions About 2004 Chrysler 300M’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Chrysler's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Chrysler tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small.

Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
