    Shifter would stick coming out of park for some time, then the plastic piece broke at the shifter. The brake release pin plastic was also cracked.

This kind of sounds like you might of broke your shifter interlock. If that is the case you will need a new shift cable.

Dodge magnum gear shift

I had the same problem. The interlock was not the problem. I had the shifter replaced (at my own expense because drive train warranty would not cover). After examining the old shifter discovered source of problem is a plastic cam on the front of ths shifter. A tiny PLASTIC ear which connects to a small spring had broken off. I repaired this by putting in a small screw where the ear had been. Incidentally, my tow truck driver had also seen the same problem on several Chrysler 300s. In my estimation this is a poor design on Chrysler's part.
