2000 Chrysler 300M from North America
Love it, Not wild about new 300, would go for Charger instead
Have had the automatic light switch go bad and the lights just come on as off when they wanted too, the rack and pin on the steering, and a couple other things, but they were all under warranty.
Right now I have a wobble in the steering and I do not know why. I have had the tires balanced and rotated on several occasions and it is still there. It might be the place I have had them balanced at, but I have had this problem before, any suggestions?
Car is fast for a sedan and handles like a dream. I whip around a turn and hit the gas before I am halfway through it and the car hugs the road and goes!!! with no complaints from the car or tires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi. I currently have a 04 300M special edition and before this car I had a 99 Intrepid ES. They are pretty much the same car as you might know, and I had this issue with both the Intrepid and now my 300M. I had to replace the inner tie rods, which causes a wobble, mainly during freeway driving. It cost me about $430 dollars.
The other thing is the hub bearing, which is common with these cars; it costs about $300- 400 dollars depending where you go and if the part is after market or factory. It could be a balance issue as you mentioned or the tire itself. Have it checked again. If not at the dealer, try Sears auto center, Firestone or, Pep boys. Pep boys is usually the cheapest, Sears being middle priced, and Firestone being the most costly but still less than the dealer. I am sure it's the balance, tie rod, or hub bearing.
