5000 0 The plastic plug's o-ring right above the transmission pan on the passenger side was leaking fluid. It was replaced in less than an hour at the dealer. 
8000 0 The transmission interlock part was broken so the gear shifter would not shift out of park. 
17000 0 Radio was not providing proper sound level to front speakers. The car died as I was making a turn going no faster than 10 to 15 miles per hour. I pulled over and it started right away. My research found that this issue has happened to other Charger owners and the dealers have not been able to determine issue. They replaced the radio with a new one but now there are more issues. The front speakers still don't work properly and now the 6 CD changer will not play the CD's and will not release them either. 
18500 0 Replaced front speakers because of weak muffled sound. The same problem is still happening after replacing them. Now they have ordered another new radio to replace the new one we have which ate our CD's and an amplifier which should fix the weak sound. 
20000 0 They replaced the radio and amplifier and now it seems to be working properly. They still need to extract our music CD's that were stuck in the CD player and send it back to us. What a nightmare it has been to fix this issue.
