IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BUYING A HEMI 300 READ THIS FULL REVIEW FOR THE TRUTH!! I read online about these cars before I bought mine, I found countless reviews about the 5.7 hemi completely failing at 100k miles, I thought I could avoid this if I was careful, so I went ahead and bought one, and the engine completely failed and needed a full rebuild at 145k, my machanic did it for 6k cash, I have had no trouble with the engine since other than the check engine light poping on and off all the time randomly for no reason (which is common with all 300s) the biggest problem with this car is the front end, all 300s have this problem, and there is no way around it. The entire front end is the most unreliable setup on earth, you can put 1500 into brand new bushings and control arms and a few weeks later it will start makeing noise again, I have owned mine for 5 months or so and my car is currently in the shop for front end repair for the 4th time! No matter what u replace, it's only going to fix the noise for a month or so, then you will hear a new noise, every single 300 owner I've talked to has had the same problem, one of my friends even had it happen a month after he bought his car brand new, it's simply part of the life of a 300 owner. The rear suspension is bad too, but not nearly as mutch as the front. I have never had this happen, but a few of my friends have had electrical problems with theirs causing the car to burn out its own battery, or even turn itself off in the middle of the road. I am yet to experience this with mine. The transmission in my 300c AWD has been pretty good to me, have only had one problem with it, I would be driving and pull up to a light and when I try to start again the transmission would rev up to high rpms and I would only crawl forward at about 3 mph, so I had to restart the car in the middle of the intersection and it fixed its self, but then happen again 5 min later, and again and again, I brought it in and it ended up being a 10 dollar sensor, that was in the tranny instead of on top where it usually is on a car, so I had to send it in to a rebuild place which charged $850 for the job, no problems since, the tranny is different for the AWD cars, mine is still running strong at 148k miles, I hear the rwd tranny fails at about 100k miles. The Chrysler 300c hemi AWD ( and rwd) is a mess when it comes to rely ability and maintenance, but when it is running right it is the absolute nicest car I have driven or rode in, I get complements on the car every were I go, it looks fantastic, it sounds mean, it rides amazing, it shifts smooth, and you have endless power under your foot, its like driving a Mercedes with a bad ass American v8, It's mustang gt/camaro z28 speed in a car that is full sized,comfortable and weighs an extra 1000 lbs, plus with the AWD it's good in the snow, and actually handles really well, the suspension is firm for a normal car but it feels plush and expensive, the interior is very nice, actually really good quality materials, feels and looks very nice, this car is extremely unique, and there is nothing else on the market like it, I went with my heart and bought one ignoring all the bad reviews, and even though the maintenance is insane, it guzzles gas and has endless problems, I'm still glad I did. If u decide to buy one, u can get extra life out of your hemi by changing the oil every 3000 miles, using high octane fuel like 93 (I was using 87 when my engine failed) and investing in an oil catch can, to prevent oil build up inside the engine, which is commonly what cases the HEMIs to eventually fail.

Love this car!

Very nice car. I've got 145,000 miles and it still looks new! The hemi is very responsive and has plenty of power when needed or just for fun. I get a lot of compliments and the design of the car is unique but not overstated. It is definitely made to drive swiftly on the highway but can still corner well for a vehicle that's as big as it is. With regular maintenance and minimal abuse this car will last a long time.

It's a nice car......has some wear and tear on the seats in the interior....lots of little dents on the body...maybe from hail? It's a good commuter car which is why I bought it.

I purchased a new Chrysler 300 Touring in Feb 2006, putting 120,000 miles on the vehicle in about four years. The only maintenance required was routine (oil changes, transmission flush, replacement spark plugs...). Amazingly, at 120,000 miles the car still had the original brake pads with 40% of the pad remaining. I've never had a vehicle this reliable, and have nothing but praise for Chrysler's build quality. Ride was quiet and smooth, but also nicely balanced through the corners, making it as pleasurable on a back road as on the highway. I averaged slightly over 24 mpg on the highway at a steady 80 mph. I later 'upgraded' to a 2010 300C, but found the Touring to be better balanced.

Amazing quality and reliability for me. No real issues until about 225k miles except replaced tie rods a couple times (partially due to crappy roads) and had one issue with it being stuck in park. Never even replaced battery but I drive a lot of hwy miles. Since 225 k, I had the brake and rotors replaced (2nd time for rotor) and since then, the ABS and EAS lights have been on and as result lost cruse control. Passenger door open from inside issues. Power steering is a little stiff on occasion. Engine light is on. Still drives fine though. Body is in Great condition, one tiny spot of rust that just surfaced (live in Michigan) and a few scratches. I got my moneys worth in this car!

First problem was Stalling on left turns after tank fill up. Problem was deteriorating valve in fuel tank letting raw fuel enter intake manifold. Tank had to be replaced. After tank replacement, car had to be turned over twice to start, unless cold start. Clacking noise from air re circulation control? has been repaired twice, once by Chrysler. It is clacking again and it can drive you crazy. Park to Neutral lockout mechanism broke so car could not be driven. Override also failed. This also was taken care of by Chrysler as a courtesy. Hood and trunk lifting struts have been replaced three times. They only last 6 months in the Las Vegas Area (high temp environment). Monroe's seem to last the longest. I have had the hood come down on me a couple of times so now I use a stick. My wife had to go to the emergency room when the trunk came down on her head. Before 50,000 miles, Rack and pinion failed and water pump failed. I have been told by service that there cracks in some components of the front end? We no longer can use the car on anything more than local driving. The whole car should have been recalled. On wet roads the back end spins out with little force on accelerator, especially on left turns????

I bought this car new in July 2006 and have had no major issues that were not covered by the warranty, I only have just over 36K original miles and just replaced the tires and that was only because the tires had age cracks on them, the tread was still in good shape and probably could have gone another 36k but didn't want to take the chance. I Love this car.

I am the second owner. It had 40k miles on it when I bought my car. Now it has 112k , and only problem I had was the EGR valve around 85k miles....I had to get it replaced and the problem is fixed. Its not the best luxury car nor has the best performance. But you get what you pay for and it does the work. My friend thinks that it is better than BMW 335 xDrive, for the long highway trips..you go figure...If you take care of your car it will not fail or break ...IMHO American made cars are more reliable than the European cars...plus the money you spend at the mechanic/dealer is always less if you go for the American...be smart if you don't have a million...

Hi - I bought a Chrysler 300 Touring Edition with 63,000 km's on it. I bought the car from a salesman friend and he swore up and down that car never missed a service and was ultra-reliable. I have owned the car for just over two years (now has 109,000 km's) and have done the following since I owned it - replaced two front end ball joint and two front end control arms - replaced alternator - replaced battery - serpentine belt "exploded" had to be towed. The front left wheel bearing had to be replaced. ERG valve replaced.Knuckle joint is gone in the steering column. I can't buy the joint must buy the entire steering column at a cost of over $900.Air conditioning compressor replaced.LEMON LEMON

I have a 2006 300C I bought new in Nov of 05. For the most part the car is a reasonable ok car. Replaced a front strut and tires and that is about it so far. Car looks great with the Bentley grill and high speed feels like your floating on a cloud. However, without a doubt this is the worse car I have ever driven in the snow. Even with a light touch of the gas pedal reserving all this horsepower the car spins (including after I bought new high end tires for snow) and sways side to side. In the past I have ventured out in the snow only to turn around because the security that I will be able to get home or get stuck is a constant on my mine. Should have gone with the awd version.

Loved this car from the day I drove it home. One owner black beauty only mod was a K&N drop in filter and I added a Borla exhaust system. Hella fast and fun to drive. Well maintained and garage kept, used as a Livery sedan and purchased with about 93k miles. Replaced front strut assemblies and wheel bearings (pricey). Car is nose heavy by design. All went well without any issues until cruising in the fast lane at about 70mph Engine lost power without warning, barely made it off of freeway and car had died at the offramp. Stranded with clients in car 85 miles from home! Broken valve spring, bent valve and pushrod, Had heads redone and with tow bill about a $2500 breakdown. Sold it

Best and Worst car ever owned. As far as luxury and comfort is concerned, this is the best car I ever owned. But, at 66k miles, the car died at a red light without warning or signs/symptoms of problems. It...just...shut...off! Still waiting on diagnosis from Chrysler automotive. At this point, Chrysler is charging me $320 just to tear down engine to see what is wrong. Will report back once I learn the problem. Im expecting to hear engine blown $11k in repairs. But hopefully not! BTW: I keep the car in good repair and use synthetic oil. Had a PT Cruiser for 10 years with no problems!

I bought this car on Dcember 11, 2011 and it had 58,800 miles on it. Since then i have taken about 10 trips in this car. It now has 74,650 miles on it and she is still going strong. All my friends and family love my car. The build quality is amazing there are no rattles or squeaks either. I recomend this car to anybody who is looking for a good used car.

Do your research! People are giving star rating based on the looks/cosmetics of the car and not talking about the engine that will fail on you with low mileage! I've had the engine rebuilt and just recently, the transmission. The mechanic who rebuilt my engine makes a living on fixing Hemi V8 5.7L engines. He was surprised that mine lasted 110,000 miles. That should give you a clue as to what kind care and quality control Chrysler has. I bought the car brand new in 2006 and gave nothing but synthetic oil changes and the proper maintenance. It looks great but I do not recommend this vehicle for reliability purposes.

Bought used this year. Car is 2006. Drives really nice, suspension is a tad stiff for my liking but I live down a dirt road, performs great on the highway. The 3.5L engine has enough power to push the car without feeling sluggish, but the SRT-8 would be much more fun for a speed junkie such as myself. Love the way the engine sounds when put to the floor. Gets between 16-19MPG city and 25-27 MPG hwy.

Okay this was my fathers car. And it was such a piece of junk one day I was in the car on the highway and the steering wheel was vibrating and shaking. There were many issues with things that my father assumed were fine, but he traded it in for a Toyota Avalon. It handled like a turd and the interior was crap. But i have to admit it looked sharp in black and it rode smooth and had a quiet ride.

I bought this car in 2005. I love to drive it and love the way it looks, however, I have had many problems. 2 months after I purchased the car I brought it in for shudder problems between 30 - 40 miles per hour. Going on year 7 the dealership never fixed it or could repeat the problem. They know this is a problem. They are screwing people. Now, I am out of warranty, have 170,000 miles on the car and continually get told that I need a new transmission. I am taking this to a lemon law lawyer. I also had to take the car in continually in the beginning for electrical issues such as, back window not rolling down, EBS always on. I have never broken down but feel the car is not dependable.

I bought this car new in 2006. The body style was the main reason for my purchase. I take very good care of my cars. I serviced this car regularly with oil changes every 3-6,000 miles even though the owners manual say to do so every 7,500 miles. The 2.7 engine blew at 89,000 miles and now I have to go buy a new car. It won't be a chrysler! Other problems I had with this car was the transmission. It seems that is a standard for Chrysler.

This car is just for looks. Even with doing regular maintenenace to preven major problems I still had them. Within 2 years of owning my 300 I have paid $700 to replace a housing unit $600 to replace the water pump $1700 to repair a crack head caused by the car running hot when the water pump went out. And now the car is stuck in park come to find out there are a lot of people having this same problem with Chrysler cars something about the shift box there is some plastic piece that is faulty and Chrysler will not do a recall leaving the customer to have to replace it. Will never ever buy another Chrysler car again. My father told me not to buy Chrysler but I did not listen.

I'm a 17 year old and I received this car as a gift from parents. I got the car in November of 2010, with 39,800 miles. In March 2011, I got rid of it (to get a Range Rover). within those 4mo, I had already put 5000+ miles on it. I loved to drive this gas guzzling, 425HP beast. I'm a dragracer, been doing it for 8yrs, and I must say, this car will pin you back in the seat, hard. No matter what speed you floor it at!! Within the 4mo, of owner ship; I only had two problems. 1) Sometimes the AC would start acting funny & not run properly. 2) Once or twice it wouldn't start on the first try, but would on the second try. Other than, I 100000% recommend this car, to ANYBODY. It's a blast to drive!

The tires didn't last very long. I hate the cruise control! Very disappointed that my car worked great, and then stranded me. I find out that me along with 25,000k other owners have been stuck because car gets stuck in "Park" due to cheap plastic pin part not made from aluminum. Chrysler won't do a recall. I would like to know who to complain to. It has cost me work time. Very unexpected to have your car work perfectly then just not work at all. I'm glad my college son did not take it as we discussed for his college admit day. He would have been stuck hours away from home. Chrysler wants to charge $500 for parts/labor for their mistake. They keep this in stock because of so many!

my 2006 300 Touring has been great and horrible at the same time. unfortunately the horrible is starting to out weigh the good. I bought it for it looks and power. At purchase time, 79,000 miles, it was a friends corp fleet vehicle.You can't deny it is one of the coolest looking cars on the road today. The V6 power is great, but the transmission is a pain, shifting is horrible (automatic). ESP works very well, sort of clunky in its responsiveness. Mechanical issues: front end rattling that nobody can seem to fix or id, broken tie rod, brakes:caliper malf replacd evry 20k. worst of all electrical: entire heat/air controls work sporatically, and headlights flicker off at worst time.

Hope it holds together...

Bought my 300 brand new. So excited, that was short lived. It started the night mare! Sunroof, had to be totally replaced. Then yhe transmission started acting up. In and out of the dealers. Finally they put in a new one, still isn't right tho. Waited weeks for the transmission, in the dealer more than out. Sad. So then, the tires wore out in about 16,000- 20,000 miles, kinda a tire recall, but I got stuck paying for them. Then at 30,000 miles on a trip a sensor goes out in Iowa. Never ending. Love the look but a Corvette is on it's way. Think twice before you fall in love with a 300! They have low resale and will empty your pockets!

I bought my 300 C three years ago as a "new"2006. Plan to trade it next week for a "new 2010". I'm getting the same vehicle with a few more options and AWD (I live in the Snowbelt). I've owned Cadillacs in the past and they don't have anything on the 300C. Tires were worn out at 44000, other than that, have had NO problems...never been in the shop but for routine maintenance. Gets 25 mpg on the interstate at 65mph. The fact that I'm buying another should say enough.

Happy 300 owner

i bought the 2006 300 touring 2 and a half years ago, absolutely love it. It had 42,000 miles on it when I bought it, has 79,000 miles now, with no problems.It has the original brakes, I had them checked last month and their still fine. I live in Kentucky, three trips to fla & One trip to miss, I got 26 mpg, that great for a car this size. I hit a deer year & a half ago, and had to drive a rental, a 2009 Toyota Camry, it was awful, it only had 9000 miles on it but drove & rode like it had 300,000. My last two cars were Cadillacs, a Seville and a sts, the 300 has them beat, I love this car.

I read Consumer Reports but I hate the fact that all the "foreign" cars rate high and the Dodge and Chrysler always rate low.I love my Chrysler 300.I have owned it for 5 years and it has never failed me. At 60,000 miles I am just now replacing the tires.I have the large engine and it climbs the mountains at 80 and gets 26 to 27 mpg. For a full size car the mileage is great. This is the 5th car or truck I have bought from Oxendales and they are also great to deal with. We are a 2 car family so we have owned Chevy, Fords and Toyotas but nothing as nice as this.I have dual air, satellite radio and cooling in the back seat so my grandkids don't complain about being hot in the summer heat of AZ

My car has 40k on it. Unfortunately, my front end feels loose and rattles and squeaks. my research shows that about $1000.00 fixes it and it will come back again in about 20k miles. Due to a poor design and heavy front end

The car has been awesome! I bought w/12k Miles and the Car stock was very fast w/425 Hsp. With few bolt on modes the car is close to 500. A whole group of dedicated followers are on-line waiting to share info. Parts are very reasonable. Gas Mileage is where you would expect, drive like your in the Indy 500 and you'll get 13 MPG, baby it and it's 18. Every time you start your SRT8 a Prius cries. Very tight ride, good handling for a 4200 lbs car with plenty of peddle. You can turbo your ride and have more power than a Lambo but why it has more tha enough. Exhaust makes the car sound like a Beast! SRT8 is a total sleeper and is the most bang for your buck you can possible get!

Power!

Bought this car in April 2010 because it was time to retire my 2000 Bonneville SSEi and I wanted something powerful that also had AWD. I also wanted something with low miles and didn't want to pay much over $20K. With all that in mind, the 300C AWD was pretty much the only option. I originally wanted a 2007, but found a nice 2006 with only 21K miles in my price range. The car is AMAZING. The ride quality is great, the look is great, the handling is great and the power from the 5.7 L Hemi is jaw-dropping. I had had to make one minor repair -- the sway bar bushings needed to be replaced because they were worn and causing a clunking sound over rough pavement, but otherwise it's a total dream!

Had more snow than usual this winter and it handled great. The HEMI has more than enough power for this heavy car. Mileage is not bad on the highway. (20-22 mpg) Tons of room inside and in the truck.

Bought 300C with 32,000 miles. Silver with updated grill and some chrome. Looks great, handles well. Suspension allows rapid cruising, does extremely well on windy roads for a car this size. Power is always there when you need it, tranny shifts smooth, geared ok for when you jump on it.Boston stereo ok but I will upgrade rear speakers soon. I like the large sunroof, lets in alot of air and light. I have always owned big cars with V8's and this one has not let me down, overall its a great package for the price.

I was very satisfied with the overall performance and reliability of my Chrysler until the early afternoon on May 9th when the Engine decided that the parking lot of Osh Hardware Store was the place where it would decide to rest forever. I drove to the store fine and when I came out the car failed to start. I had it towed to the nearest dealership where the mechanic confirmed that that engine is completely gone. The pistons have holes in them and the valves are in pieces, it will cost $8,100.00 for a new engine. I informed Chrysler LLC about the issue and after confirming that the problem was not my fault they only offered to pay for HALF leaving me with a $4,000.00 bill

10-15,000 miles in since I bought it at 40K. I'm coming off of a 9 year relationship with a '98 Bonneville so I'm a little biased but this is NOT the best automobile I've ever owned. The ride is all right, the fuel mileage is abysmal, it gets pushed around like a minivan in cross winds and the build quality is a little suspect (the brakes were completely replaced by the time I bought it at 40K, as was the climate control module. And recently 2 quarts of oil just disappeared from the engine).It's a little hard to see traffic lights (I'm tall) but I still just like to walk out and look at it. The styling is just fantastic. I'll take pictures because it might be the last Chrysler I ever own.

We have put over 39,000 miles on our 300C in the past 4 years. No problems at all. The Hemi makes it fun to drive and the hi tech goodies are easy to use. The Boston Sound System is absolutely the best car radio I have heard. Talk about value for your dollar. I usually trade cars every 3 or 4 years, but I can't come up with a good reason to trade this one.

I purchased this car new in November of 2006. It combines, power, handling and luxury all in one package. After owning high end Lincolns, Oldsmobiles and Buicks, this auto is one of my favorites with exception to the Buick Park Avenue. The 300C AWD intertwines ample power, superb handling and amenities that gives the driver and passengers a superior auto experience. In three years of ownership there have only been two visits to the dealership and the problems were a tech bulletin notice for a transmission seal leak and the navigation CD failed. Both were handled with no residual problems. I plan on keeping this car for a long time, side by side with my Park Avenue!

It has more horsepower than just about anything on the road. It handles like a race car and accelerates like on too. I bought this car because it was the only 4 door on the dealer's lot with a DVD in it for my 3 year old daughter. She was driving me crazy on road trips.. Little did I know what exactly I had just done. I just purchased the best car for the value on the market today.

It is made with cheap parts that will keep you at a dealer. ALL the pins in my motor broke in half and they were hollow. The mechanic said that most pins are solid all the way through so if they broke once they will do it again. Every time I took it in, I was told they get alot of 300's in with all types of problems and most of them have to do with the motor. I love the look but hate the way it kept me at a dealer. Im glad I got rid of it.

Had worn tie rods at 30K, but Chrysler reimbursed for parts at least following my complaint letter. All components work great on this vehicle. I'll average 21 mpg in my 20 mile commute, not bad knowing that this car has unbelievable acceleration when needed/wanted.

In my opinion Chrysler does not deserve the "poor vehicle quality" reputation everyone seems to know them by. I purchased my 300 as a one year old used car with 23k existing miles on it. I have owned the car for nearly two years now and the odometer currently reads 63000. I have never had to bring this car into the shop for any repair work of any type. Nothing has ever broken. It alway starts and gets me where I need to go. The brakes are original and still have life left.

Bought car in 2007. The only trouble I had was the dealer had to replace the "mixer", which is the knob you use to switch the air flow. The car has been very good. Gas mileage on the highway (which is most of my driving) is 25 mpg to 28.6 mpg, which is fully loaded trunk and back seat @ 75 MPH. From Michigan to Florida and other parts of the country. The quality of gas really has alot to do with the mileage. I've tried them all. It's supposed to be run on mid grade, but that hasn't been the case either. Last time (feb & mar) just ran it on regular, and the mileage got better and better from the start of the trip to the end. ended with 28.6 mpg. One other thing is I run Synthetic oil. Has 27K

Essentially the best vehicle I have ever owned. Combines the exhilaration, acceleration, and precision I expect from my Jaguar, and the quiet, luxurious, and smooth attributes I get from my Lexus Hybrid. I'm a believer in domestic cars again - you will NEVER feel underpowered at a stoplight, or an on-ramp. The Benz-derived tranny is a perfect mate to the "demi-HEMI" and shifts smoothly without hesitation. There should be no question about engine performance - RWD's performance off the line is jaw dropping (in dry conditions of course). If you want a car you can schmooze the boss in, and blow past the European imports in, look no further.

I am 6' 3" and drive quite a bit so I wanted something comfortable. The front seats are rooomy.. But they could be softer and more comfortable. My friend has a BMW 535xi and those seats are like sitting in a recliner. Soft and supportive. So, on long trips, I def tend to get a little stiff in the back and my leg hits the door and the door should have a little padding there.. Not hard plastic. Its not a luxury vehicle, but its a solid, dependable car for me so far.. Dealership cleared up a few issues that could have been costly, but they said it was a manufacturing error and fixed it all for 100 deductible even though I didn't extend the warranty. That's service.

This vehicle did a lot of highway driving and was great up to 75000 mls, afterwhich started having problems with head gasket, water pump and thermostat which were all related to the heating system, very costly and after speaking with several Chrysler professionals it is to be expected with this 2.7 engine the problems and more not described here. I've met technicians that would not touch this engine. For one thing the water pump is behind the timing chain which becomes faulty because of the head gasket issue, resulting in high labor costs. Really liked the vehicle but dont have time to spend at the dealership spending money in these hard times.

I've owned my 300 for exactly a year now. I agree with others it looks fantastic. Granted I bought it used, but The car idles rough, shifts badly, currently need sway bars, wheel bearings, EGR Valve system repair. It sways badly lags in power especially in take off. I have check engine light and 2 lights to do with breaking illuminated. And beware if you ever have a flat tire. The lug nuts have casings on them that go over the lip of lug nut. They are not the removable caps. When you try to take the lug nuts off they caps just spin. I have had to cut the caps off my lug nuts and have to buy all new. On top of that, whoever heard of a car you have to have software updates? Wish I never bought it!

It is a great highway car and highway gas mileage averages 25.5 mpg. For a large V-8 Hemi this is very good. On winter roads, winter tires are a must have. People give compliments on this cars looks and the "Cool Vanilla" color. Width of the trunk is a little tight for 2 sets of golf clubs though.

The 300 is a very pretty car to look at but, if you want a car that will stand up in performance and, reliabilty I wouldn't advise you to get a 300. I've had my car almost two years, I get my regular services however my car sounds and performs terrible. The transmission do not change smoothly and, its extremly loud. My tire went flat and, I was told I have a slow leak in the rim that can't be fixed which mean I have to buy a new rim at $400. If you have a choice please do not get a 300.

I live in Minnesota so I wouldn't say it's a car I would choose again to take on the Minnesota winter but it held up! I had the electronic stability program which did not come optional in the base sedan and it helps out a lot. I believe I had two recalls and then also one time everything that was power operated other than the locks went out and had to get the entire dash replaced. It was covered under warranty so it didn't matter much. Other than I loved it! Gas mileage is decent for the size of the vehicle but it helps with the smaller engine.

I am was very excited about my 300 but that excitement has diminished. My car has been to the dealership 5 times since July, the first four times was because of fuel problems and I was told to but a higher octane gas, still had problems until the 4th time when I had to have the throttle body decarbonized because of the poor advice from the 1st visit. Now the transmission needs to be replaced because it was low on transmission fluid for too long. Note you can not check check the fluid the dealership has to this. My question is why wasn't this check the 1st four times I went in. The warranty is gone and now I need to spend $2900 in addition to the $700 already spent in a 2 yr old car.

Since owning my 2006 300C AWD, I have had it to the dealers 4 times for a shifting problem with the tranny. I can be driving along and with no warning whatsoever, the car acts as if it was put into neutral, engine is running strong, but it won't go anywhere. The dealer(s) (and Tech Support) seem to be having difficulties finding the problem. I'm afraid to take long drives, just in case it happens again. This makes the car not dependable or reliable at all ! Too bad because I really like it otherwise.

I purchased a 2006 300C SRT8 from Carmax and am VERY pleased. The SRT8 has great luxury features (I compare to my Lincoln Town Car) and has superior features to the other 300s. The handling is superb, brakes are unreal, and the 6.1 hemi is the ultimate. An American muscle car V8 to the max. It has incredible throttle response, awe-inspiring power, and a delicious muscle car sound. Sedate and well mannered, it nevertheless will pull like a freight train heading into a black hole when you put your foot in it. Downsides? Compared to my Town Car, it's noisy. Gas mileage ain't in the stratosphere. Plusses? It sticks to the road like glue, has every luxury feature known to man, & HEMI!

Both my wife and I were attracted to this car because of its distinctive styling. After 2 years, we still think it looks great and love driving it. We considered a midsize but, in hindsight, the larger car was the right choice, especially with two boys 12 & 15. The 3.5 L engine provides plenty of power. I was concerned about getting rear wheel drive but the traction control performed magnificently in the Colorado snow, and it was snowy, this past Christmas. This car has definitely surpassed my expectations.

I have not had any real problems out of the car since I bought it. I have only had some pinging from the engine and it turned out to be a failed valve. Other than that, it handles great, has enough power (if I wanted more then I would have bought the SRT- 8) and has a very comfortable ride. Outstanding reliable vehicle for the pricing.

Love my '06 300C but recently had a freak problem with only 22K miles on the car. Accelerator assembly (gas pedal) broke loose and jammed behind the brake resulting in not being able to stop and a rear end accident at less than 10 mph occurred. The front end looked trashed but worse resulted in $7K worth of body work plus $5.4K+ for a used Hemi motor (mine was out of balance after the impact) and a used $2.4K transmission. This low impact resulted in > $14K in repair and the car has not run right since. Chrysler has turned a deaf ear on this incident even thought it is fully documented. Lost my shirt on the residual value, time to dump and buy foreign at any cost.

I bought this SRT8 primarily for the performance of the 6.1 Hemi; I have not been disappointed with any aspect of it. It has been absolutely reliable and I have not returned it to the dealer for any warranty adjustments. The drivetrain performance is stellar, the lighting is fantastic, and the build quality is the best I've ever seen in production cars. It's exciting to drive and, when I drive it conservatively, it attains 18+ MPG...but I didn't buy it to conserve gas.

I've owned Acuras, and test driven BMWs and Mercedes. This car outdrives them all, and you do it in plush comfort. This car almost drives itself, and makes commuting a breeze. It even gets decent gas mileage, since it has the feature where it can cut out four of the values when they are not needed for acceleration, which really boosts your gas mileage.

We bought the car 7/06 and in the first year the I have already replaced the tires, the paint is chipping off the handle on the driver's side the leather is already cracking in the driver's seat and the engine lights is always on, not to mention that brake light, dealership claims they can't find the problem after the third time they said they needed to replace the thermostat, why I don't know, I just think this car shouldn't be doing anything the first couple of years,especially when you buy it brand new, we are very disappointed for the money we paid for the car, I just think all the materials are cheap

I drive the 300 Signature Touring (black!)with dual transmission and it is the best car I've ever owned. I have never gone two years and not cared about trading "up" until now. I am still madly in love and only occasionally thing of getting another 300. The car is big, comfy, has an amazing sound system that my kids are very proud of, a huge trunk, and the exterior is the bomb! Love the navigation system, and I am a happy girl with the dual transmission since I adore the power-purr as I downshift to pass. Fantastic job Chrysler! Don't change the exterior! Looking forward to checking into the extended version with our super tall family 6'6", 6'5", 6'3", etc.---Great car!!!:)

love my car, but it's been in the shop to replace a bracket on brakes, replace carpet, something to do with the driving line, transmission leaking and rear was leaking oil also. All that fixed but, I've had rattles that I keep going back for and they say it's just the road. I finally called the manager right now I'm sitting at home with no car because they won't give me a rental car, not even for the previous times stated. I dropped car off at 8:30am and it's almost 2:00pm and I've talked to the manager at 12 noon and haven't heard anything as of yet. So I guess I have to call Daimler Chrysler.

Big improvement over stock. I'm lucky enough to live not far from Hennessey performance engineering and the things they can do. Awesome. Have made numerous high speed test in West Texas, at 165 on smooth road handles good, but rough road at high speed better hold on, it gets tricky. Still lots of fun.

I purchased this vehicle with 18K miles on it and added tinted windows, styling kits on the outside, new 20" cool rims and tires. The car came with all the wood fancies you could find inside. The previous owner kept this car soooo immaculate. I am glad not to drive a Cadillac Eldorado anymore, and especially after two of them. The color is Cool Vanilla outside with cream leather interior and I get so many looks on the road. Honestly, it is the nicest one I have seen so far. A real eye stopper. The seats could be more comfortable (very Benz inside) and could adjust in more ways. I wish I had folding mirrors and rear-assist. LOVE this car!

The first time I saw a Chrysler 300C it took my breath away. This car stands out in the crowd and I still notice every one I see on the road. I don't yet own one but a couple of years ago I rented a 300 Touring edition for a week. I put nearly 400 miles on it and loved every minute of it. Even with the V6 engine it had plenty of power, it handled beautifully for a full sized car weighing nearly two tons, and it had tremendous brakes. Fuel economy was very good and comfort level in its cavernous interior was great. I liked everything about the car very much and will probably buy one eventually but I still own a nice Maxima and a Jeep Grand Cherokee, so my vehicle needs are met already.

Where do I begin? I bought the car in 2006, and rarely drive it. It has only 8000 miles of driving at this time. The gravel shield has fallen off - protected under the warranty. Now the Front End Bumper has completely fallen off as a result of the low to the ground design, when parking in stalls and approaching the parking stop. I have to pay $2600 to have it fix. I blame myself-for trying to spur the US Economy and not following my orig. feelings of buying a Non US vehicle. I would like to sell it - but have about 6k invested in after market products and services. I like the style of the car and the okay with the interior comfort. I will be getting rid of it this coming year. What a waste?

Fun to drive, but in the month I've owned its been in for service twice. Brakes made horrible noise, took it in and was told there was a service notice re the brakes. Pads were replaced under warranty. One week later, same problem. Took the car in again and was told that chrysler wouldn't do anything about the problem and I'd have to live with it. Ashtray has also broken twice. Driver window auto-up has to be fixed. Splash guard under the front spoiler fell off on the highway and Chrysler wouldn't replace under warranty because I didn't stop the car on the interstate and go back to pick up the pieces after they fell off.

I have had my Chrysler 300C for over 2 years now and I still love it. I test drove the base, touring, and limited models and I was not impressed and was not considering purchasing the car until I drove the C, even though the cost was much higher. It handles extremely well and the power to move when it has to is fantastic, especially on the freeway. The only problem I have had is a problem with the brakes squeaking, which the dealer took care of.

This is the 2d 300. They both wear out the left front tire on the outside. That means the caster camber if off from assembly. The breaks pulsate at 20K miles. That means improper cooling. The deck lid has no handle to lift it up with. If your car is dirty, your hand gets dirty too. That is not practical. The horn needs to be more sensitive. The rear compartment air vents don't deliver what they should for the price. I was supprised that the chrome wheels were made of plastic along with the mirrors -- for the price they should have been the real thing.

The 300C is big, very comfortable, fast, and the styling is like nothing else seen on the highways. Both the wife and I feel very safe driving this car. The metal part of the door is high, giving one a sense of being "in not on" the car. The 5.7 liter V8 is powerful, quiet, and a Hemi. The multi-displacement system that shuts off 4 cylinders and switches to 8 when more power is needed works imperceptibly. Highway mileage is good for such a big car. We get 23-25 MPG on highway. However, only about 15 mpg in town, but I am not one to keep from enjoying the acceleration that the Hemi affords. One trip to the dealer was needed due a leaking transmission sensor.

AWD version which I have sits an inch or so higher than the other variants. I like the height as most SUVs do not block my view as they do in a lower sitting vehicle like a sebring (which I also have). The car is nimble for its size, corners well, and gives a great ride. Apparently, the 300 is blessed with the Mercedes Benz suspension system for a fraction of a Benz price. It also has the Benz designed transmission which is smooth and is able to be shifted manually into higher-lower gears. Nice touch that adds to the secure AWD ride on mountain roads. The exterior is great and everyone knows it. It gets lots of looks. The interior is not as impressive as you might expect, but suitable

The fire under the hood must have shorted out some wires and caused the battery (in trunk) wires to melt to the point it caught the carpet in the trunk on fire and there was a pretty big fire next to the gas tank. Thats when I discover there was NO WAY to open the trunk - ALL ELECTRICAL was out. Chrysler is a disappointment in handling my problem. Been very happy with the car until this fire

It lives up to the hype

We looked at the Touring and the 300C, and the C was a no-brainer. The upgrades offered vs. the minuscule price difference made the decision easy. This car is very well appointed, although I'd like the metallic stereo console to match the tortoise shell steering wheel. Also, the driver's seat seems a bit stiff. Maybe it'll relax a little after some miles are put on it. The fuel economy is surprisingly high - overall avg. of 18.1 mpg in the dead of Winter, and most of that would be considered city driving. A lot of county roads with stop lights everywhere. The car gets commented on every time I get out of or into it. I love it. Too bad it's my wife's car. I only drive it on weekends.

My wife and I just bought our 300C this month after having nothing but trouble with our '06 Charger. We decided to give Chrysler a 2nd chance simply because we love the style and performance. The car takes us back to another time when American cars ruled the road. We have 600 miles on our linen gold "C" and anticipate many happy miles of driving pleasure. I secretly wish, however, I had waited and bought a inferno red Heritage edition.......We live in the desert and our color choice is perfect , it never appears dusty!! I like the safety factor for my wife and our grandchildren when they are traveling , it gives me peace of mind that they are protected. Its great to have a big car again!!

I purchased the SRT8 with 425 HP, black outside and inside. The car is great to drive and I like the stiff ride. The 20" wheels are great and the brakes will stop on a dime. The orange block, headers and intake look great when you raise the hood. Replaced the front grille with the mesh one that makes the front part of the car just look great. For the price to get this kind of fast and fun with the Benz it would cost about 85k to 95k and that car will not run up to 174 miles an hour like the SRT8 will. The inside of the car is simple but gets the job done with the sub-woofer addition the stereo is great. The trunk will carry 4 golf bags but it's tight and very small cooler. Love IT

Love it

Hoped it would get a little better gas mileage (averaging 19 city 23 highway), but that is only thing I've found that isn't a ten. Brings me back to the old days of big Detroit Iron that feels good to drive. That and the constant compliments make this the best car I've purchased in two decades.

I have put 11,000 miles on my C and I still believe it to be the no brainer choice that it seemed when I bought it. Edmund's guides us to compare it to the Acura TL, Infiniti G35 and Lexus ES 350. I assume they do so because they are about the same price. The 300 is larger, has more displacement, more horsepower and way more torque. I compared it to the Lexus LS 460, BMW 750i and Mercedes E550. It lost, but only by a a very little. But it cost $25K-40K less. And, I admit that this is personal, but it's way better looking. The Cadillac STS is the only U.S. car that can even begin to compare and costs 17K more. Of all the luxury performance sedans, the C is far and away the best value.

After researching the 300 for two years (including driving 2 300 touring rentals), I purchased my car 3 months ago selecting the HEMI version and certainly have not been disappointed. For not that much more money, the 300 C is loaded with extra features, more powerful and very much a more finished vehicle inside and out. The driving experience has been excellent as I drive mostly freeways. This is the car that you want to drive more and more given the high level of excitement and satisfaction. The car has effortless power and handling is great. The car holds the road very well for a big vehicle when changing lanes and braking. This is a very solid vehicle as it moves down the road

love the looks of the car. however, looks can be deceiving. currently it is in the shop for about the tenth time in 20 months. Chrysler had a recall on this model but failed to inform me - only found out by chance when i brought in for oil change. one touch up feature works sporadically but after five trips to dealer it still isn't fixed properly. it is a shame i have to get rid of car for reliability reasons because i love the look of the vehicle. interior features are plain looking and use of rubber-like products are a big mistake because they attract dust and are very difficult to clean.

First driving impressions are that this feels like a luxury car. But stomp on the pedal or push deep into a corner and you'll think it's a sports car. Great combination of rich features & high performance. I've taken a few long road trips across Texas and you can eat up the miles at 120 plus mph while your passengers sleep comfortably. The interior room and truck space are incredible for a car with this level of performance. The mechanic at my local dealer says he rarely sees one come in for repairs, which is a good sign. Note that synthetic oil is a $75 - $100 affair, and it eats gas and tires (every 15k miles at $300 each), but even after paying my $$$ I think it's worth every penny!

Vehicle is very comfortable, handles well, ease of entry and exit is very good. Present mileage is 9500. I have experienced throttle hesitation under most circumstances but especially when turning from highway onto exit and attempting light acceleration, it simple does not respond until accelerator is depressed much more and then response is sudden and abrupt. Under full throttle acceleration I frequently experience a severe hesitation between shifts from 1st to 2nd wherein the vehicle seems to loose forward momentum and nose dives! Dealer says "no codes, no problem" I am extremely disappointed in this vehicle due to the aforementioned behavior. My Wife has experienced the same behavior.

This is the best full sized sedan in its price range. Look no further. I did exhaustive research and comparisons before buying. Almost went with the Charger but stuck with the 300C because a few more luxury features. This cars feel and roadability is outstanding. plenty of power and good fuel economy. I average 18 city and 22 hwy. with the MDS system The interior comfort is great with a ample rear seat room. This car still get lots of attention where ever it goes and it has the ability to get there fast.

The car is terrific. Great handling, comfort and exterior styling. The fuel economy is not good. Chrysler offered no help when I contacted them. The interior should be more exciting for a $40,000 car. Acceleration is fantastic, too bad it drinks so much gas when you put the petal to the metal. The AWD car should have standard 20" wheels, that would make the car look much better. The toys (GPS, Sirius radio, back up warning, up windows automatic, wipers that do not need to turned on etc, etc) are great fun and makes the car more enjoyable. I'm anxiously awaiting when DCX decides to put a diesel engine in this car. Until then I keep this one.

Both being car nuts, I was first struck by the styling. We needed a new ride so we got the Chrysler. I love the Hot Rod almost chopped look. Being from the 60's we had to have the Hemi. The performance and the gas mileage is amazing. The interior is comfortable but a little lacking. The suspension is incredible. For a big car it handles like a sports car. No drift and really hangs in on the corners. Very stable in the wet. What would be really hip is a manual 5 speed. It gives you that 1930's big phaeton kind of feel. It's a wonderful car. I love the satellite radio. A must.

It has that fabulous HEMI under the hood that wakes up the minute you summon it with a light touch of your right foot and transforms itself into a sports car with thoroughbred lineage. It handles like a dream, brakes with little effort and has a throaty growl that only an American V-8 is capable of voicing. This may be the most versatile vehicle I have ever experienced for many reasons. I find myself taking "the long way" and inventing reasons to drive. I love this car so much, I bought 2 identical!

After researching for 8 months I finally bought a 2006 Cool Vanilla 300C. This vehicle is the best. I looked at Lexus, Acura, Lincoln, Mercedes and BMW. Just kept coming back to the 300C. This car is fast for a 4000 lb vehicle. Stereo system is great and vehicle cluster is nicely arranged. Visability is not as bad as everyone says although I am only 5 foot 9. Very comfortable. Tinted the windows today and it looks like a luxury limo. Can't wait to drive it tomorrow.Thinking about adding Chrysler Mopar parts to make it even faster.

This is a great drivers car. The handling is excellent and the 3.5 liter makes plenty of power to move it smartly along. While I don't wale on it like my chipped 98 Neon its just as much fun and 10 times more comfortable. It hauls 5 six footers to lunch in comfort and has become the ride of choice for my co workers. Around town, despite my aggressive use of the throttle it gets 19 mpg or better and 27 on the highway. When ethanol free fuel is available it knocks down 30 mpg. I base these claims not on the readouts but on an old fashioned record book. This 300 Limited is the most value I have ever received in a car purchase.

Well, i have had my 300 now for a few months, and I LOVE IT!!! I get more looks and compliments from all types of people, from 5 yr olds to 70 yr old men. It rides smooth, and even though its a pretty big car it doesn't seem like it. I have the touring model, so there are a few little extras that i would like, but i can live w/o them. And for being only a 3.5 L V6 its got plenty of power. I live in Northern VA where there is CRAZY traffic and i haven't been run over yet and find it quite easy to maneuver through traffic with my 300. I would Definitely recommend this car to ANYONE!!!

Best car I have ever owened. The 5.7 hemi is very reliable and powerful. It is a joy to drive. The car looks awsome and I get many compliments on it. With the ESC on you can take corners like they were not even there. The brakes are awesome and the traction control keeps you glued to the road. Thia is a very fast and very safe car. The only other car I would consider buying would be the SRT8 6.1 425 HP

Got a great deal on a loaded 300C/AWD - it's beautiful inside and out. Nothing to complain about at all - I've let many of my friends and family drive it or borrow it. Everybody loves the smooth ride and comford. I would be confident to highly recommend this car to anyone who's thinking about getting one. Young and old alike, it's a looker. As my teenager said, "It's a luxury race car" - it outclasses the old man's Cadillac, Lucerne and shouldn't even be in the same category as any boring Ford. It's in a class of its own.

Very comfortable and fun car to drive. People seem to notice this car and have received many compliments. First road trip was 400 miles from Las Vegas to San Luis Obispo, CA, and made trip on one tank of gas with 100 miles left over on "miles to empty" computer. Got 29 miles per gallon for the entire trip. Chose Cool Vanilla for our exterior color and the custom "Bentley- style" front grill. Love it!

I was gonna purchase a 5.7L300C which I thought was great during test drive. decided to up to the SRT8,,Im so glad I did. I love this car !! Braking will change your hair do, acceleration next to a so called sports car at a stoplight will have you smiling for miles while looking in the rear view. Bad side, gas miles, brake dust, front spoiler is sooo low, I know I'm gonna break it sooner or later. tranny is alittle rough from 1st to 2cnd. Small prices to pay for this much fun. Ive done 140 in this car effortlessly.

I have found the engine and transmission to be excellent. I have found that the interior items - such as the dash board trim fit and finish to be less than satisfying, the ends of the dash has developed bubbles under the material - not acceptable, dealer says they all will do this due to the way the dash is made. Other than that car is a real head turner and I absolutely love all other aspects of the car.

I've owned more than 40 cars of all types but never driven something like this. Unending thrust, great handling, stunning looks. This is a two ton sedan that can run with the most powerful muscle cars ever built and take my three kids to school in comfort. I waited over a year to get the car, had it 9 months, and still do that look over the shoulder thing as I walk away from it in the parking lot.

First of all the 300 is different. It doesn't look like it came from the same mold that 80% of the cars do now. I like the look. It is probably the best car that I have owned in many years. Great gas mileage, great looks, and really good build quility make it fun to drive. It has plenty of power and handles great. This is the second 300 that I have owned and they were both wonderful.

I just finished a 4000 miles trip in a week in my 300. This car has the most comfort of any car I've ridden in. The handling was awesome. The V-6 engine has as much kick in passing as a typical V-8. It's moves when you need it too. It's a luxury car that I would recommend to anyone in the market to purchase a new car. Well worth every penny it costs.

I just purchased the 300 Limited. It took me about 6 months to decide between a Cadillac or Chrysler, well as you see I picked the Chrysler and I am loving it. The ride is excellent. The body looks like I paid 50,000 or better. I have also taken it back to be serviced for a sensor and even there I was very pleased on the service. Keep it up Chrysler.

I love the way the car looks but if I had realized it was underpowered I would have gotten the 3.5. The salesman didn't offer for me to test drive the 3.5. I'm worried about the transmission on a car that almosts weighs 4,000 lbs. My 98 Ford Taurus had a better performance. Oh, well. Live and Learn. I'll probably try to trade it in before the warranty gives out.

I have owned mainly four door sedans most of my life and prefer the ride of a full-sized luxury car. I just bought a 2006 Chrysler 300C Heritage Edition in Inferno Red Crystal Pearlcoat and it is one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen on the road. The 5.7 HEMI mated with a 5-speed Mercedes auto- stick transmission is fabulous, and can run circles around any Northstar caddy. The ride is quiet and smooth, but it handles with such agility and positive steering response it feels like a much smaller car. I am very impressed with the overall fit and finish, and am considering buying a second one (his & hers) in 2007. For what a Mercedes costs, I can buy 2 of these loaded!

This is my first American Brand car and what an exiting surprise it has been!! I started to drive in the late 70's when the quality of American cars began its decline, which steadily continued throughout the 80's and 90's. I've owned 3 Japanese and 3 German cars and I never seriously considered any American cars until this one came out and I didn't think twice about getting it.

In keeping with Chrysler's market meme - more for less - this car represents exceptional value. I got mine on a 3 yr lease for $100 cdn/month LESS than a loaded Accord. This car has it all - big engine, AWD, near-lux interior, fantastic stereo, tremendous physical presence. But corners were cut to get to the low price. Fit and finish is poor in spots. The leather isn't high quality. The carpet and interior door trim is less than lux. Tires are awful. Fuel econ is sobering - MDS seems to stop above 70 mph. I find myself wishing that DC had offered a SE option for $2,000 more that improved trim issues, offered adj. susp and MDS, etc. Having said that, this is a great-near epic car.

My experience with the 2006 300c has been enjoyable and frustrating. I find the car fun to drive and comfortable. I get a lot of compliments about the car with the after market grill and chrome pillar posts and I try to keep it clean polished.I think Chrysler did a great job in the design of this vehicle. The frustating part of my ownership experience is that I expected a little more quality for the price, I have 10,000 miles on the car and there is more squeaking and creaking than I had in the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 54,000 miles on it.

That's probably the only thing I would want to change. I love all the colors! Let's just say that I love the Chrysler C (hemi) so much that I'm sure it will also be my next car, just instead of Magnesium, which I have and love, it will probably be the blue. I'm sure I will still have the hundreds of compliments (and race offers) as I do now. Thanks for building such a hot car! Love it!

I would buy this car again! The ride is smooth as can be and the power is wonderful. It's fun to drive and the looks - well, every knows what they look like and it still turns heads. The room inside is unbelievable. My Great Dane even fits comfortably! My husband at 6'2" is comfortable in the drivers seat, passengers seat, and he even has plenty of leg room in the back. The ONLY down side is the windshield seems a little narrow and it took a little getting used to when pulling up to stop lights. It is necessary to stop back a little further than normal in order to be able to see the light, otherwise you do have to duck down to see through the windshield. I love this car.

Once I test drove "THIS CAR", I knew this was the ONE for me. Talking about comfort, luxury, style, all in one. This car is well worth the drive. I would recommend that you test drive one today.

When I was a boy - my dream car was one that didn't exist. An Imperial with a 426 HEMI. Finally - after all these years - that dream has come true and it's called the 300C SRT8. It's a classic American luxury sedan with the heart [and suspension and brakes] of a genuine sports car. And I know all about sports cars. I traded in a 1991 Acura NSX [that I owned for 11 years] to buy my 300C SRT8. And I'm not even slightly disappointed. Oh sure - the NSX was a wonderful car - and handled better - but it's not as fast. There is something very confidence inspiring knowing that you have 425 h.p. just waiting for you. [have you ever watched the movie 'Duel'?! lol] The 300C SRT8 is a VERY nice car.

Four months after purchase my wife and brother bought the same car, different colors of course. Love the ride, performance lacks ZERO. ESP is great in Ohio winter. The Rear parking sensors have been a blessing in parking garage. I have never filled out one of these questionaires but with the price of this car I feel compeled to "spread the word" Great Job! If this car wore a bage from Europe it would easily sell for over $100,000.00. A steal at 45k

My vehicle finally arrived and I took delivery of it with 16 miles on the ODO. The excitement quickly turned to dissapointment in just ONE mile from the dealership! The vehicle had a SEVERE shudder and EXTREME pull to the right! 10 more miles the check engine light comes on!

This car has been a bargain . All of that horsepower and great looks. The car handles and performs well as I use it as my daily commuter. Having three other german cars this has been a nice experience except for having to deal with a chrysler service department.

The day after trading an '01 M5 for this SRT8, my stomach was in knots of anxiety, but no more. I'm crazy about this car! It has tons of features, is built well, and looks fantastic! It doesn't have the quality materials as the BMW, but it's so much less expensive. I expect this car to be much cheaper to own and repair, the Bimmer was horrific.

I have experienced tire problems after the first four thousand miles. The P215/65R17 Continental tires develop flat spots causing excessive front end noise and has been a constant problem. I have had the tires rotated three times since owing the car and had the front end checked by the dealer's service manager. This is the first Chrysler I have owned and it may be my last if Chrysler Corporation continues installing these type of tires.

This is the best overall car I have ever owned. I traded a 1997 Mercedes because I wanted to gain heated seats, satellite radio, navigation, and stability control and was put off by the Mercedes prices for a new model with these features. This has those features for half the price, and I get far more compliments and strangers asking how I like it than ever happened with the Mercedes. I have the 3.5 V6 and am very happy with both the power and freeway mileage of 32, better than the EPA estimate. My only wish is for a little less road noise, but there is no wind noise and the ride and handling are wonderful. The black metallic paint is much better quality than my wife's 2002 Mercedes.

i'm very happy with the looks & ride of my 300, however i have had so issues with the electrical system. when pressing the brakes, turning the steering wheel, turning on/off the a/c, etc. the headlights & interior lights dim! i took it back to the dealer several times only to be told that its normal. i don't think thats normal for a brand new $30,000 car. it even stalled once while parked & turning the steering all the way to the side. thats not right! another problem i've noticed was that some times my rear windows don't roll down until about the 4th or 5th attempt! Looks good, Rides Good, Very POOR Electrical system & customer service!

I am in the process of letting a third dealership look at it.The brakes move forward when I have my feet on them. I am very dissapointed with this vehicle.

Love it even more now! Trip to New Orleans and back without a worry. Better mileage than expected (21 mpg at 80+). Arrived ready to go farther. This car is awesome -- still point and shoot! Absolutely no regrets. Cruises all day at limit plus, and easily gives more when needed. Great cornering. A thrill and pleasure to push through corners. Turn signal and cruise controls still fall right to hand -- no guessing/fumbling. This car turns heads! Smiles and "thumbs up" often. Still unique enough. Don't see one on every corner, although more lately. Quiet and powerful -- does it get any better? This is the wife's car, now I want a Charger SRT-8!

I recently purchased a 300C Heritage Edition, after trading in my 2003 Audi A4. Now, I absolutely loved my A4, and would recommend it to anyone. However, I wanted something a little larger, because the A4 was just getting a little tight for my family. I am extremely impressed by the 300C. It is large, comfortable, luxurious, and has never ending power. The interior and exterior styling is first class. I recommend this car to anyone who is looking at the large car segment...this is truly a great American sedan!

I purchased the Heritage edition model after seeing it debut at the LA Auto Show. The car is great! This model came pre-packaged with a lot of great features - seats are the same as the SRT model, has upgraded suspension and steering over the regular 300C, high intensity discharge headlights, all chrome grill, a spoiler, and other features not available on the standard 300C. I also purchased it in red - a real head turner. Have had lots of complements. It is amazing how a car of this size hugs the road as well as it does. I went from an accord to the 300C. What a change and boy was it worth it!

The 2006 chrysler, base , 300, is a beautiful car. It`s styling is outstanding. It lacks in the performance dept. With the engine, in my opinion, too small, 2.7 V6. Fuel economy is not as advertised, and the transmission leaves a lot to be desired. I like to use 2 nd. Gear a lot in winter. This can not be be done on this car. Otherwise it is a lot of car for the money. Hope chrysler changes that poor winter time transmission though. If i had noticed a little earlier, i may have had second thoughts on that issue. All in all, it is a very nice car.

I bought my 300C in December, 2005 and can only say it is the finest car I have ever owned. I was a GM owner for 20 years, but this car spoke to me after I rented one on business trip. Great styling, smooth ride with plenty of power. The leather seating (with heat), the hands-free bluetooth phone, Satellite radio- the car has amenities galore. All of the time I get comments like "nice car" if the person is over 35 and "nice ride" of they are under 30. It is easy to see that Chrysler has a big hit with the 300 as I see them all the time on the road. A great car that is worth every penny I paid for it.

Found a fully loaded demo at a good price. Had a 1999 300M which I loved and wasn't sure I would like the C as much as the sportier looking M. Wrong, I just love this car and if it performs like the old one (or better) I am a happy camper. The ride is so smooth, and the poer of the Hemi when you want it is fantastic. Very comfortable driving and as passenger (not in that seat too often though). Have the satellite, GPS, VES, etc. and complete the comfort of the drive. Only complaint I had was from passenger in back due to viewing out front.

Chrysler did their homework with this car. As soon as you sit in the leather and suede seats you are hugged by the side bolsters which hold you in place when you step on the gas. This car has all the power you need to have plenty of fun with. The cockpit is very quiet and well trimmed out. I have purchased many cars in my day,and I would have to say that this is one of th best large size sedans on the market no matter what the price.

I test cars for a living - and this machine is terrific. Its ride is every bit as good as a Lexus and if you decide to push the pedal, you'd better have the head restraint adjusted up! The transmission is seamless, the interior controls are easy to use under any condition (I think they could have done a better job with the crusie control). Seats adjust great and a very comfortable on long drives. AND - it's definitely a head turner.

Ear to ear grin every time I climb inside to drive. Jaw dropping looks with blood thirsty power. Traded in our 05 300c for this beast. This car is a true joy. Class and brute strength beautifully combined. Holds 4 sets of golf clubs and 4 passengers with comfort. This car has unmatched performance/value. Unfortunately, 425 hp is addictive, only makes me want even more so we are trading in our 06 Pacifica for a new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, the SUV version on this car. Never thought I would own Chrysler. They have really outdone themselves with this car. Car feels like a tank for safety, Benz for comfort, 'vette for performance (and fuel economy of course).

After reading so much about Mopar's old muscle, I've always wanted to own one of their legends. DaimlerChrysler's new SRT lineup, especially my new 300, is destined to be legend. I simply can't believe the performance I get with such a big vehicle! It's a night and day difference between the 5.7L and the 6.1L. Hit the gas, and you're goin' 100 MPH Before you know it! And the ride is so smooth at those speeds. My wife screamed when she saw the speedo! Mercedes has taught Chrysler a lot about comfort and styling. Overall it's just a great car, even though the gas mileage stinks.

We already own an F250 and an Excursion, both 7.4L diesels. The 300C was the only model car that we both said we'd ever be interested in owning. It has style+ unlike all the other generic bubble shaped cars out there. It has a wide body that doen't narrow out in the headroom area, leads to a very roomy interior. Rides great and the handling is unbelievably smooth. The Hemi will knock you back into the headrest when you put your foot into it! Great on long roadtrips too! Fuel economy isn't that great. But hey it's a big V8. Want fuel economy buy a Hybrid, but won't be near as comfortable or stylish.

Exceptionally unique styling. Overall quality is suberb. Having driven Lincolns for the past couple decades, I never imagined myself in a Chrysler. But nearly everything about this car (in the 'C' model) is exceptional, and in a class with it's parent Dailmer products. There are more electronic/power options on this car than you can shake a stick at, so I recommend a long term bumper-2-bumper 5007+ warranty if you buy the car, for peace of mind. Probably the nicest new car I have purchased ever.

I’ve only owned this car for a few days, so this is a first impressions review, but WOW It has far exceeded my expectations, especially in the room and comfort areas. While the engine is smaller than that in my Jeep Wrangler, this car has much more zip, and may be more fun to drive. The most noticeable feature about this car at first glance is the aggressive exterior styling - my wife calls it a gangster car. She drives a 2004 Nissan Quest minivan similarly equipped to my 300. The styling on the 300 has more masculine appeal than most large sedans, and my 3 year old son would rather ride in “daddy’s car” than the Quest.

On the original wheels and tires it is a very smooth ride. The ride is a little bit more rough when you move up to 20" rims and low-riding tires. Has good power, but is a little sluggish in disingaging the overdrive.

The ride is comfortable and the sound system with with Sirius shortens the trip.

This car is a blast -- A sports car in disguise that can blow away most sports cars on the road. I bought it with all the options and now have 5,000 miles on it. No problems. 17 mpg average, which is better than I was expecting. Turn off the ESP and spin the wheels! The power, performance, and braking is excellent for a large sedan. The auto stick is fun. Very solid feel at over 150 mph. This car makes the drive to work or play very enjoyable. I call it the Bat-mobile. All it needs is body armor when you lock it, cables, an oil slick, and rockets.

Have the car for almost 2 months. I would never think that I'd buy american auto but ..... Test drove/compared it to both a6s, RL, bmw 530, 350 MB, infinity m 35/45 and lexus 430. None of the cars have the combination of power, comfort, breaking, handling and value for $$$. What a great car!!!! Everything you've read is true. For an everyday driving, it doesn't get any better than this. If you thinking about getting it - buy it, you won't regret.

The car is the most beautiful body style I have seen in years from the Chrysler Motor company. This the only todate that can be given so many styling profiles. I love the car and hope to keep it for many years; and it is the first car that both my wife and I truly love to drive. The car has good braking, and acceleration, however cornering has to be improved. The sound system is great with the addition of Sirus radio. Truck space is adequate.

Oh man, this car is still the one! Everything's still great, I'm more convinced now than ever before. After having dispatched a bunch of challengers, I just found out yesterday just how much power the ESP robs! I didn't just get sucked mildy into my seat this time, the difference was joyfully uncomfortable. I'm not suggesting making a habit of driving around with your ESP off, but if it's NOT a habit, and you're having the stoplight jitters about the grinning WRX-driving brat next to you, disengage the ESP, hang on to the steering wheel, and score one for grown folks everywhere!

After driving around town a couple of months buldging out eyeballs of onlookers, I decided to take it out on the open road to see what it could do. I drove to Las Vegas from Orange County in 3 hours on a Saturday after work. I was impressed with the fuel economy on the open road. The comfort was undeniable and the sound system was delightfully entertaining and rich. The dash and all the information it had to offer was quite wonderful to tinker with while driving. At 120 mph my car felt as though it was gliding at 70 mph. Responsive and nicely equipped, my 300 Limited is one smooth ride. The beautiful jade pearl color and impressive style will last years to come. Sturdy as she goes. Hot car.

I can actually say that driving is fun again! I traded my '04 330ci in on the srt and havn't had a minute of regret. The ride is reasonably comfortable considering the 20" wheels and lowered height. Of course it doesn't handle like the BMW but who cares! I have pushed it a little off the line and had to let up right away as I don't want to buy tires just yet! I can't wait until it is broken in. It is the ultimate sleeper! Why would anyone want to buy foreign again.

The 300C AWD is an awesome luxury and performance car, capable of handling any kind of weather condition you throw at it. Highway driving is amazing with extreme comfort, quietness and power. At first this car gets some getting used to due to it's size and visibility. After living with it for a couple of months, you get the feel of it and it's really a pleasure to drive. The car is so solid and is very well put together. Mine is fully loaded, and the options and features are impressive. The EVIC allows customer preferred settings for almost anything and is intuitive to use. The NAV system is a bit of a toy, but certainly useful and entertaining. For the money, it's a great car.

In over 25 years I have never purchased a new car until this one. One test drive and I simply couldn't wait a year for one to show up at CarMax. Pull up the specs on a 545, an XJR, a Caymen S...heck, check out a $170k DB9. The SRT takes them all on (with my 6'2" wife sitting comfortably in the backseat - try that in a BMW) and costs 50% less besides. I've not figured out, and may never use, 1/3 of the features they packed into this thing but that's OK. It's the perfect car for those who need a practical daily commuter / family hauler but still recall wistfully the mustang/camero/whatever they had in high school. This car is so much fun, I'm not sure why anyone would buy anything else.

I have not used the CD player at all because we have Sirius radio and I love that too. I could of not made a better decesion in buying this vehicle.

Very fun to drive looks stylish and sophisticated. A riot to drive with plenty of power and luxury ride on the open road.

I have driven my 2006 Chrysler 300 for about a week. I bought it from a fleet dealer. I did not know that it had a small engine since I really don't know much about cars and I fell in love with the car's appearance. It seems to lack power, it's OK but i need a little more get up and go...! I guess I just have to get used to it. Drives noisy like a airplane taking off!

The ride is firm but it's my everyday car. Chrysler/Mercedes hit the nail right on the head with this one. Right now, if I had to buy another one, I would. The gas mileage is better than the suv I just traded.

I love my 300! I had a Lexus that was giving me reliability problems. well that is putting it mildly. The Lexus' engine seized up at 27,000 miles. Toyota's famous problem with thier engines I guess. I know of six other people this happend to. But now the good news. This Chrysler is almost too good! I love the way it handles and the way it is assembled. A lot better than any of my Toyota based cars I've owned. It commmands more respect on the road and at the valet stand. No one writes Toyota Tercel in referring to my 300, unlike when I drove my ES 330.

Chrysler's 300C SRT8 turns out to be better than my expectations. The MPG for such a powerful car is much better than I expected. The sport suspension is more comfortable than I expected, especially seeing on TV all of the extreme driving that it can do. This car gets as much attention as my custom Harley Road King. The slightl lower stance and the 20" 10 spoke wheels are very impressive. My wife thoroughly enjoy's driving the SRT8. She has claimed this car as hers. Today when we got onto the freeway, and there was a long open space, I stepped on the gas for about 3 seconds. We both looked at each other, and have not stopped smiling yet. Go; buy one now!

Shopped dealer lots and online through four states. Looked at DeVille, Lucerne, LS-430, and the Avalon. The 300 was the better buy all around. Fantastic deal -- after the rebate, it was $2K less than TMV. Love the ride, the power. Wife likes the safety aspects and the memory functions. I LOVE the HEMI! Mileage isn't great, but knew that going in. The dealer took the Contis off and put on Goodyear Assurance. Handles great and it's quiet. Didn't take a big hit on the insurance, either. Time will tell about the reliability. Hope to keep it ten years. Will repost after a few months.

I wanted to write this to give prospective buyers a little insight. I purhased the 300C all wheel drive about a week ago and the purchase transaction worked well. I had done my homework, including all written at edmunds.com and was pretty well prepared. The one note of caution I give is the $3000 extended warranty. In retrospect, I should not have gotten it. It goes into effect after the 3 year 36000 mile new car warranty expires, but it only lasts until 7 years or 70000 miles. That is about $1000 for every 10000 miles over the original warranty. It is unlikely that the car will need $3000 worth of repairs between 36000 and 70000. You might wish to consider this before you buy.

Just picked up my new '06 300 SRT8 yesterday. Previously had a 2000 Caddy STS. Took some reading thru the manual to find out all the cool features, which meet or exceed the Caddy. Car has a great combination of power/acceleration, handling, and braking. All in a package that is comfortable, quiet, and reasonably refined. Just close the doors on one and you'll immediately sense the Mercedes-Benz spillover. Some interior bits aren't as plush or refined as MB or Audi's are, but for $20k less (or more), it's a tradeoff I was willing to take. I got a big car with plenty of space, gobs of performance, and tons of features.

I have only had my 300C for 3 months. After driving it for 5,000 miles, i am more impressed with it's comfort and handling than I was at first. I find that it isn't just a way to get from point A to Point B - it is an experience akin to flying first class in a widebody jet. I also enjoy the looks that passing motorist give it. the fuel economy isn't a real factor since i appreciate the 4,000 plus pounds of security that it ofers my family, along with the fact that the 5.7 Hemi provided more that enough power to get out trouble. the tranny is super responsive. I don'y have near enough room to praise the interior except to say - TOPS! In general, I could be happier with my new 300C.

Test drove all three models (Hemi last). Boy was that fun. Best Car I have ever owned. MOST BANG FOR THE BUCK than anything in or out of class. Have not had it on the open road, but am impressed on local highways. Power is key with this piece of joy.

I drive about 60 miles a day on both interstate and country two lane roads. The performance is wonderful. The ride is very stable but you do feel the road through the tires and solid suspension which I expected. I find find myself disengaging the traction control so I can experience the true power.The care is all that I expected.I previously owned an BMW M5 but I like this car much better and 20,000 dollars less. I installed a K&N cold air system and have a chip ordered to install also.

This is by far the most fun car I have ever driven. The ultimate dream for every child at heart! I am waiting for an opportunity to take it somewhere where I can let it run and not worry about getting a huge speeding ticket. I had a young boy on a bicycle tell me what a sharp car it was----he was willing to trade his bike for the car! One of the local police officers was almost drooling over the car when he saw it.

Incredibly powerful driving fun. Plush interior, lots of gadgets to play with. Bluetooth calling and heated seats are just a few of the now essential features I use. GPS is very helpful, esp driving around Los Angeles. Sound system is wonderful and "control center" very intuitive, integrating phone, CDs, radio, satellite radio, GPS all on the steering wheel. Car feels safe. Enormous trunk space. Barely 3000 miles on the odometer, but enjoying every drive thoroughly.

I love my 2006 Chrysler 300L! It is beautiful to look at, so comfortable to ride in and the highway mileage can't be beat. When traveling over 50 mph on the road, put it in cruise. Chrysler has built in a mechanism that shifts my vehicle from a 6 cylinder to a 4 cylinder and I get 460 miles to the tank! The only complaint I have is that the engine is kinda loud for a luxury car. But it definitely has POWER and COMFORT. I love, love, love my beautiful car! Silvia, El Paso, TX

I have had my 300c for six months now and love it. I have not seen any other car on the road that I would rather be driving (In the $40,000 price range). The hemi offers power and the exterior design is a thing of beauty. It has a roomy interior for people that are tall and/or have big bones. The navigation system and wood grain options are both big pluses. Passengers are treated with a roomy back seat. As long as I do not have mechanical problems I can see myself driving this car for a very long time. Overall this car is a hoot to drive and with the bold design expect to turn a few heads, especially if you pimp it out after market.

I'm 6'5" and never thought of buying a car. I always drove trucks and SUVs. One day a car service was using this car and I was in the back seat as a passenger. I couldn't believe the room. A few weeks later, I test drove it and I have more room in the front seat than I did in my Expedition. The price/performance ratio for this car is insanely attractive. More HP, all the internal features, Mercedes styling and suspension for 30%-40% off other luxury vehicles. I couldn't pass it up. My wife made me a happy man this Xmas!

I think it is one well-built car and definitely a great value for the money. It has plenty of power when needed and when driven sensibly gets great gas mileage for a 4000 lb.vehicle. It is by far the best Chrysler vehicle I have ever owned, and I have been buying Chrysler products since 1972.The paint and fit and finish were outstanding. Definitely a big winner in my book.

At first glance I love the 300c. Brought the car without a test drive. Love all the attention of driving it. In my third month of owning it, the car began to shudder while accelerating. Took it back to the dealer and learn that there is a technical service bulletin on this car because water is getting in the transmission by way of a faulty dip stick tube on the transmission. The dealer first change the filter and fluid, work for a while, then shudder came back. The dealer replace rhe torque converter as well as change the fluid again. Waiting to see if this solves the problem. I love the way this car looks, the power and feel although the ride is a bit bumpy in the inner city. Full warranty.

When I first saw the car in 2004 I wasn't very impressed. This car grows on you. It is elegant, very zippy and fun to drive. Carrying 4 passengers and a driver on a road trip to Miami was very comfortable with lots of room for luggage - trunk is huge! I optioned mine with a moon roof, luxury interior, Nav system, and protection package. I get lots of complements on it. Only complaint is that the Nav System is about 2 years out of date in some cases and I haven't been too successful in getting info on the updates.

Love my 300C, Great car for the money. Gets lots of looks, has lots of power & get up & go. I had my 300C into the Chrysler dealer in McKinney, Texas for the front tires feathering. The dealer says this is normal. I wonder what happens when the tires wear down bald on the edges? I like other 300C owners can't seem to get the claimed gas mileage, I get 12 city & 21.2 hwy. The Navi system doesn't show as many street names on it & you can not operate it while moving like my Mazda3s system. You must stop & pull over. I am starting to worry about the resale value now. You can get a used 300C right at $30k. I paid over $37k new in June. All in all I love this car!

I can confidently say that this car is the absolute "best buy" in the market today of anything priced around $30,000 or less. Looks like a Bentley, drives like a Mercedes and gets 27 miles to the gallon on the highway - what's not to love? You won't regret making the decision to buy this car.

The Satin Jade C is 5 months and 7000 miles old now. At this point no issues have occurred with regard to reliability. It has not been back to the dealer. It is comfortable, fun, and quick for such big car. Although these have been around a couple of years now, people still comment on its looks, and so far those comments have all been positive. I look for excuses to drive it still. We took the Sirius, power moonroof, side airbags, adjustable pedals. Mileage has not been bad for the HEMI. So far so good.

First, to the nay-sayers: you ALL know that NOTHING can touch this car for the price. The feeling you get from driving it ALONE is worth the price. Finally the opportunity was made available for average joes to recieve a little extra respect. It doesn't matter how much of a square you may be, this car will make you appear to be the most cool, together person around. The bad news is this car is such a joy to drive, you won't notice all the looks and attention you'll be getting!!! Even on the mean streets and freeways of California, this car is literally able to make unmanageable traffic a thing of the past. If you think it, it will be done. The car seriously borders on the intuitive. No joke.

The driver's seat is imposssible to configure comfortably for a person of 5'6". The rear and front windows are very small. In the rear view mirror you can see both the roof of the car and the top of the back seat instead of the road. The car guzzles fuel and hates to accelerate or brake without PLENTY of warning. It plows through snow as long as there is no ice anywhere under or near it. On ice under snow yesterday the dash showed a car with squiggly lines as it steadfastly refused to move until the eleventh steering wheel maneuver in oncoming traffic off a side street. Up until that moment, I could not understand the cars great width, which may be designed to absorb inevitable collisions.

This is a very stylish car that gets comments from everyone! It is a huge attention grabber. Unfortunately, I drive 35,000 miles a year and spend a lot of time in it. The cloth seats are miserable - very stiff. The two cup holders are small in front. With a baby car seat in back, the back seat has no cup holders at all. The check engine light comes on if the gas cap is not sealed 100% per the dealer. The six disc CD and stereo are very nice. I would not buy the base model car if given a choice.

Everytime I get into my Chrysler 300C I find it more enjoyable to drive. I truly enjoy the GPS as it gives me perfect directions to areas that I am not familiar with. + Chrysler really put together a car that people stop and take a second look at and I enjoy every mile I drive it. It is perhaps the safest car on the road which is a good feeling after just having had an accident in a much smaller car.

I absolutely fell in love with the "vintage" look of this vehicle but when I actually had a test drive, I knew this was to be my next vehicle. This car has all expected in a comfortable, luxurios ride. The extras like satellite radio, navigation system, mp3, (6) CD player, heated leather seats, dual air/heat temperature controls, rear seat air/heat, automatic rearview mirror dimmer and extra large trunk are absolutely exceptional. I would only warn perspective buyers of one thing, the small front side windows for the driver and passenger can at times make it difficult to get a clear side view, badly needed views necessary for entering freeways or exiting curbside parking.

To me they're not the same car even if they do look alike besides the headlights and chrome features and Hemi 350. 300c should be recognized.

Now have 6,000 miles on my 300C. I love it, just finished a 2100 mile trip with interstste speed limits of 75mph. When you set cruise control at 78 mph it maintains it at all times. All other cars and trucks lose a mph or two on upgrades, the 300C doec not have to shift down to maintain speed on steep upgrades. Seats are very comfortable and no need to make adjustments after hours of driving. This car gets the looks and questions when you are at the gas pumps. Oh yes, average mpg was 24 even for the 2100 mile trip with average speed about 70 overall.

At 26,500 miles my hemi broke down with a broken valve spring. I was towed and was without my 300C for a week. Out-of- town dealer replaced all 16 valve springs and plugs. Runs fine now, but I could not believe the stares I got with my hood up and flasher lights blinking last Friday night on a major thoroughfare. I was shocked and disappointed that this could happen. I have never abused my 300C by driving it too hard. My car shook violently and I lost power rapidly. The check engine light flashed unmercifully. I will give my hemi one more chance. The next time I am trading for either a Japanese or German car. I guess American built reliability is still highly suspect.

low winshield. difficult to see traffic lights when up close. sometimes using the sun roof to see the traffic light makes it easier. however, then you have to move up to the stop line. that brings you close to the center of traffic. nevertheless, it's something you get use to. the car is dynamite. i am told so by people on the street every day. the guys just go on about the design and the ladies, it's the unspoken look. good job

If you grew up in the 60's as I did then this is the ultimate driving machine. The SRT8 is truly a new age muscle car. Recent trip from Columbia, SC to Lewisville, IN 1404 mile round trip. The SRT8 was great, handling through the turns couldn't be better, and the power is fantastic. Averaged 20 mpg. Not bad for this much horse power.

Mine is black pearl coat which really sparkles in the sun. Get lots of compliments from strangers. Of course the exterior is showy and stylish but so is the interior. Not sure why a couple of the reviews I have read do not agree. This car handles well and rides great. Back seat is roomy and comfortable.

I didn't like this car at 1st sight but after driving it and being around it (i had 3 of them in my rental car fleet in the last year but all were base 300's with 6 cylinders) it has more than impressed me. I owned a 1999 and a 2002 300m both of which my wife and i loved. This car is just so different that it took some time to get used to. We really like the interior and gage design they are very easy to see and read. Also chrysler finally lit up the cruise control and radio controls on the steering wheel. That was one thing i didn't like about the 300m's they was hard to use them at night.

Power is the name of the game for a 300C, when you need to move there is no hesitation. The dash is a little to plain, but the instrument panel is easy to read. Love the options,and the GPS is easy to use.

425hp - lots of mid-range torque, tight-shifting 5-speed auto-stick transmission, posi-trac RWD, 1st-class exterior styling (mine is all black), best brakes I've ever felt (Brembo), smooth and quiet at speed, yet surprising nimble and accurate for a 4,000-lb car. Reasonably sticky 20" Goodyear F1 Supercar radials do a nice job (but won't last very long). Chrysler did a fabulous job of cramming classy styling, a great chassis and good old-fashioned musclecar power (without the bad side effects) into a reasonably priced sedan (considering what you're getting).

I have owned this great car for 3 months. At first I had some concern about gas mileage and figured I had bought power and it would cost me. REcent 600 mile trip with AC on and Interstate travel at 65-75 mph averaged 23 mpg which included about 2 hours of city driving. 100% interstate yields about 25 mpg. Fun to drive and it gets the looks and thumbs up!

I have driven $70k cars and this one ranks right there with them. Dealership left alot to be desired. Vehicle is as smooth as one could dream of. I am not getting anywhere near the mialage they say I should and I am not pushing this car. I am averaging 16.9 and I drive 50 miles a day on the highway with light city. My concord was 22.5 all day long! Some items seam cheaper then I would have liked. Chrome rims almost feel plastic, definitely do not feel like alloys. I think they are just plated. Does not show instant MPG, always was my fav. feature of the chrysler. Not an option on this one. Visor mirrors are that of a base cavalier. All in all, it is the best car I have ever owned. FAST!!!!

This is a great new car, comfortable fast and quick manuevering, the thing that I admire the most is the fact that I'm getting about 30 miles per gallon in the city and highway mileage, I get nothing but compliments when I drive my customers as I own a Limousine service in Los Angeles,Ca. I've accumulated almost 2000 miles in my first month of ownership, hopefully I will enjoy this car much more than my Towncar the car itself in paying off in the comsumption of gasoline, I literally paying half of my cost as I did a month ago, the extended chassis makes a truly enjoyable and smooth ride.

I have owned my 2006 300c for about a month now. Initially on a trip to Las Vegas, while driving around town the car had some fairly serious issues that turned out to be a faulty fuel sending unit. The dealership fixed the car quickly and other than that, it has been an awesome car. Very quick and solid and plenty of fun to drive. Around town fuel economy is about 14-15 and on the freeway I get a suprisingly good for a car this powerful, 23-24mpg. In my opinion nothing can beat this car when it comes to bang for the buck. It is a great value and well worth every penny.

The SRT8 Chrysler is the epitome of style, quality, performance, safety, value, design and excitement. We took it to Statesboro,Ga last week from Delray, Beach, Florida to the annual family reunion. It was a huge hit, With EVERYBODY! The ride up and back (500 miles one way) was effortless. I took my wife, my two sons, 20 and 22 with us. It stops on a dime very safely. My other cars are Mercedes 300 TD, BMW M series Roadster and Miata. It was like all four put togther, but better. It is truly an amazing vehicle. A definite winner.

The HEMI engine seems to have loads of endless power on demand, and sounds great too. Chrysler recomends 89 octane fuel in the HEMI, and since purchasing this car I have averaged about 18mpg. This is about the same gas mileage I achieved in my V-6 Sebring Coupe before I traded it in! This car has a solid well put together feel to it on the inside and out, and turns heads wherever I go. In my opinion there is no other car on the market that comes close to matching the value Chrysler gives you with the $35,000 dollar(average priced)300C! Last time I checked Acura didn't have any V-8 powered sedans and the cheapest V-8 powered Cadillac or Lexus sedans have a $50,000 dollar starting price.

I have owned 27 different cars in the past 45 years. All of them have been American cars (at least in name). I have had my 2005 300C for 7 months and I still get a big smile on my face every time I get behind the wheel. This car is amazing. I love everything about it, especially the Hemi. Years ago I owned cars with powerful engins, but nothing compares to this Hemi. Combining the power with the stability control and the suspension, transmission and brakeing system makes it a car worth thousands more than the sticker price. I constantly get compliments about the exterior looks. I get about 18MPG on my daily driving and about 24 on the highway).

Had the car for two weeks and am having a blast. Drives great and feels great. The only downfall is the mileage, but what do you expect with this size of engine. When parking, you have to be careful not to hit the front due to the bumper being low. You will get better at backing in thats for sure =). Definitely worth the wait to get this car. Oh, and my 16 year old son is loving it too. I do wish the wheels were shiney.

I have had my new 300 Touring for about 2 months and have racked up almost 4000 miles in that time. I find myself looking for excuses to go out and drive. I started my search for a new car by looking for coupes in the GM family and after a month of web searching and comparing both coupes and sedans I could not find a better dollar for dollar value than the 300 and nothing came even close as far as making a statement.

I recently purchased my "HEMI" 300 because of all the HYPE. Having traded my GS430 Lexus I am sorry I made the switch. The power is incredible but the ride and road noise is horrible. The transmission is 'notchy'not shifting at the right speed,lots of reving.The interior is very cheap and poor fitting plastic. The seats do not offer the support needed when putting the pedal down on corning. It is still an sluggish 'american ride' Now the worst...High Test gas the best i could get is 200 miles on a tank. Come on American , you can do better than that. I am trading in on a new Limited Avalon.not the power but so much better overall,

After driving a sports coupe with FWD for the past 5 years I found the return to RWD to be a real pleasure. I'm fortunate enought not to live where snow can be a concern but from what I've read, this car's weight distribution still makes RWD practical for even the snow belt. I also enjoy sitting up for a change as opposed to practically sitting on the floor of the cabin!

I just purchased an 06 brilliant black 300C with all options except U-conn and the rear DVD on 6/11. It was one nice ride. It has awesome power, the upgraded audio sounds great, and I love the center console layout with the navigation system. I have the "Bentley" style grill and a spoiler on the car as well. It's amazing to see the heads turn when you pull into a parking lot or drive by. If you want a solid car with room to roam inside that can get up and go when you need to then this is the vehicle. I ended up with a 6/100 full warranty as well gives the peace of mind while owning it. It's an awesome car.

Outstanding muscle car performance in a beautiful and sophisticate 4 dr sedan package with all the creature comforts for under $50K! It does not get any better and you save at least $30K over what the E55AMG would set you back. So it takes premium and gets about 12 mpg in town. Not a great price to pay for so much fun.

Finally, got my 300C. Excluding back seat DVD and Sirius (n/a in Canada), it is fully loaded. It's been fun 3 days. Plenty of power. Effortlessly accelerating and passing other cars. Quiet. I owned 2 300Ms and moved to 300C thanks to Chrysler's pull forward program or it would be another 6 months in 300M. I also shopped BMW 5 series, but did not want to pay extra and wait another 6 month in the old car. Attractive design, but car feels a little bit bulky in the front (especially when cornering) as I can see hood's corners. I had no problems with visibility, but it takes a bit to get used to boxy design when parking. Shows 14l/100km mostly highway driving. Hoped for less, but no complaints.

We've only had the car for 12 days,and can't say enough good things about it. It's whisper-quiet, smooth over the bumps, has great amenities, and it looks great! Gas mileage has been in the low 20's, including time sitting in the driveway reading the manual & figuring out the gadgets. The navigation system is light-years better than our 2004 Town & Country (guess we need to update our disc for it). Love the EVIC with its multitude of informative screens and its easy-to- set "personal settings" option. Rain-sensing windshield wipers are excellent (a feature we've never had before); roomy trunk is terrific; all the "toys" are lots of fun (and helpful). Can't beat the Hemi!

Drive as usual for l00 Miles

We have found at least a dozen features about this car that we do not like, 700 words is not enough to tell the entire story, a quick summary is no front seat assist handles, backs of legs rub on side of car when getting out. Daytime glare on dash instruments, buttons that operate radio, navigation etc. are not illuminated at night. Demo ride did not point out that highbeam headlights were obtained by pushing down on the lever not by lifting up the lever as with prior Chrysler cars. The feature that bothered me most however was the lack of comfortable armrests for the driver, I was spoiled by the captains chairs in my van. I was not told about the cost of the puncture proof tires either.

What a great car!

I love my 2006 Chrsyler Limited. Great design & looks. Smoothest ride I've ever seen. Oh so quite, no wind noise. Plenty of power. Handling is a dream. Chrysler is to be commended on such a great car!

I have a SRT 8 with 800 miles on it at this time. So far it is every thing I had hoped it would be. the gas mileage is still a bit suspect, but with 425 horses what can one expect? The handling, ride, and performance are outstanding; so much so I am having second thoughts about taking it to 500 horses! I have yet to really push the car, and it may be awhile as there are precious few places one can really get on it.

love it

This car is super fast, I've had it up to 135 and I've been told the govner kicks in at 155. It's also smooth and quiet to drive. Mine is a 2005, they will come down on a 05 but they want full sticker price on a 06, I paid $300 over invoice. This is also my first non-GM vehicle.

First road trip was a blast from the city to the country. Vehicle handled the interstate with ease, providing a comfortable drive over the hills and winding roads. Very capable for passing and handles well. Vehicle cabin was roomy and made for a comfortable driver and passenger ride. Full economy did not fully meet expectations. However, did drive the recommended speed limit. Overall average was 18mpg. Never noticed when or if the engine went from 8 to 4 cylinder operation. The trunk proved to be roomy enough to handle all the luggage for three people. Over the course of a 500 trip, grew to love the performance and handling of the vehicle. Missed the upscale luxury interiors.

I bought a '99 300M because in 1956 a 300 blew me away in Okla City -- I was driving a '55 Chev with a big engine and lots of toys. I liked the '99 300M, but didn't like the front wheel drive. Chrysler fixed this for me in the new 300. I have a 2006 and love everything the great designers and engineers did. Great Car. PS I also bought the wife a new PT Cruiser -- another great car.

I bought a 2005 300-C. The dealer loaded it up with everything plus some of their own add-ons to boost their profit. That bothered me. Everything else is better than I expected. I still have my 300M but this is a totally different experience. This is without a doubt the nicest car I've owned. Get compliments all the time. Ride is smooth, quiet and I feel the car is firmly on the road at any speed. Have driven in mountains and handling is great. Complaints: Paint quality needs improvement. I have "Orange Peel", rear view mirrow blocks visibility while turning right. Car has tendency to track to right or left with slightest crown in roadway

My Chrysler 300C is the best car I ever owned. Fun to drive, solid quality, and great looks makes it a real winner. In a sea of cars that are just the "same", the 300 sticks out. Thanks for getting American cars back on track.

Overall, a great, full to drive and true head turner. The Hemi gives the car plenty of get up and go, acceleration is outstanding and responsive. Plenty of interior room, well laid out instrumentation. Seating needs more bolstering, better designed buckets to keep you from sliding, better interior noise dampening to provider a quieter ride and reduce wind and road noises. The vehicle appearance demands attention and gets you notice on the road. Longer seat bottoms are needed for tall driver, or seat extension. Car provides great leg room. I am over 6 feet and this cars allows me to adjust my seat all the way back and still have room to get in the back seat and be comfort. Great car.

Since the first time I laid my eyes on the 300, I just had to get it. I just bought one in April and have been loving it ever since. I've recieved so many compliments on my car(300 limited) and heads are still turning. The look, ride and comfort are just great! Can't wait to get it on the road. You won't regret it.

My 300c has plenty of reserve power, and great looks, but the transmission lags as does its ability to corner tight. All in all if your a patient driver, you'll love this baby. The ride needs to be smoother over bumps.

Great car
