I fell in love with these cars about 8 years ago when I had one as a rental. When it was time to buy another "new" used car I shopped specifically for this. I had quite a time because I wanted the C model in black with lower miles. I ended up driving 630 miles to & 630 miles back to get it & I love it so far. The C is loaded & has a Hemi...I recommend the Hemi for the power. It only gets 2 mpg less than the 6 cyl 3.5 & I average over 25 mpg on freeway. The interior is very comfortable, it brakes very well & handles well. The sound system is awesome but because the car is 11 years old the navigation system is outdated & has no touch screen or back up camera. For the price of the disc required to update I can buy an after market unit that has all of these features & it will fit right into the dash w/o modifications. There are outstanding airbag recalls that I will have to take care of & the worst thing is that when you fill up the car all the way it stalls. This is a known problem with this & several Chrysler cars & fortunately about 2 years ago they finally agreed to extend a lifetime warranty to the gas tank which will need to be replaced. I have arranged to take it in to dealership & this work will be free of charge. Overall for as nice as this car is, with only 75,000 miles & for the price I paid...$8750 I believe its a bargain. They are out there to be found but some dealers think they are worth $10-12k...Don't pay that. Find one & stick to your guns. Many of the dealers who initially laughed at my offer are now calling me ready to sell after sitting on there cars for a couple months...but of course they are too late.

I just bought an 05 300 C SRT 8 and I'm loving this car! it reminded me of my prime time when I used to have a 77 Trans Am ! I never taught I would see another car like that 77 (performance and handling ...even looks)and this SRT 8 really exceeded my expectations.

In 2005 my dad bought this car new. While he maintained it Well I (now 21) grew up with this car. He used this beauty for work which meant the trunk was always full of construction equipment. Its now April 2015 and I inherited the car And drive it regularly. Point being the car has 271,000 miles And still drives like the day I rode home in it. Its never had any work done. Just oil gas and tires. Best car ever.

Absolutely hate this car! I fell in love with it because of its look and the engine, but have had nothing but problems every since. Put well over $4,000 into the front suspension alone. I also had to replace fuel pumps and the radiator. Overall, i put about $6,000 worth of repairs into this car before something in the engine finally gave out and totalled it. I will never buy another Chrysler.

With this car Chrysler put the American car on the map again. It is an example how an american car should be. Big powerful engine, rear wheel drive, appealing exterior, roomy interior with reliability and a lot of luxury. This car is such a phenomenal car. Although it is an 05, yet it is an eye catch. with its beautiful chromed rims, spectacular front inspired from the 1958 300C. Also, my car is black so I think that adds more elegance to it. It had 112000 miles on the odometer when I bought it and today it has 124000 miles yet I haven't spend any penny on any kind of reparations.

I Know many people are power crazy but I go for looks and performance.Why have power if you cant use it? I have a 2005 base model that is better looking and performs as good as the more expensive models.I dressed it up and that's why it stands out next to the other models.I have a friend who has a C model and when parked next to each other mine is the eye catcher.The slower I drive it the more people see it.

Second 300, this one is a Hemi. The salesman told me it was driven by an old lady, of course it was! Truth is I met her and it was all true. Her husband died and she had to get rid of it. It has 11,965 miles !! Every option and it is very fast and very comfortable. I just back from a trip to Vegas, averaging 75 MPH. At 110 degrees out with the A/C on I still averaged 22 MPG. I only use Regular gas and it runs fine. This is a keeper for a long time. Buy one, they are out there for good prices. You won't regret it!

I've had my 300 since it had 2500 miles on it, it now has 55,000 and I've never had an issue with it. The only expense I've had is oil changes and tires. It's not as nice as a BMW, Mercedes etc. but you will not have to pay for costly repairs. Again, is not as smooth a ride as other luxury vehicles or as nice, but not having the head aches make it worth buying.

Exterior aesthetic appeal is undeniable, however interior budget cuts are evident. Leather is cheap, and not supportive - sadly MOPAR engineers have yet to achieve a benchmark ride akin to Cadillac/Lincoln. However as prior owners of both, neither can compare to the pure acceleration and road manners of 5.7/340hp 300C. Approaching 100k (5W20), w/ no mechanical problems to mention. Still avg range 320City/+400hwy varied elevation/region/driving conditions including snow. Very powerful, compliant, and forgiving platform. Thoroughly do the research and test drives, the Hemi is kicking with class leading fuel economy. On a more juvenile level, it just feels good.

love car, but have had some unusual problems, like the rocker panel dropping off. Has anyone else had thia problem? Had to replace brake rotors and pads at a cost of 743.00 at 22000 miles . Brakes still squeaking, even when I'm not braking. Just had to have suspension work done that cost me 1100.00 and replacement of rocker panel me 389.00. all of this on a car with 49000.00 and also a new set of tires. the originals were so worn.

I love this car, most fun driving it than any car I've owned in over 40 years (including an early 60's T-Bird and a '67 Cougar). After 4 years with this car I still get lots of looks and comments about the style. Wife won't even let me consider buying another car. Car is comfortable to ride in, and has more legroom than a friend's Lexus.

Sole owner from 3 miles to recently rolling over 145000. Five years of ownership and all I have replaced is a EGR Valve last May and a rear speaker that I blew out myself. To compare this car to a Audi or Honda or Toyota is a huge mistake. They have no where near the same in-cab room and feeling of comfort on the surface of the road. The low-long body allows for tight turns and an excellent grab on the pavement. The small V6 is well enough for highway and in-town acceleration. There is no other car (under 30000 dollars) on the market with an average MPG of 25 to 28 and a presence on the road of captivating aesthetics and size that can swallow similarly priced sedans.

I was looking for a used car that was as good as a 04 Dodge ram diesel, in power mpg, I didn't want another repeat of the durango, then we had the p t cruiser, that tin box would be o k, if we stayed in the city, but on the road I did not like the risk, first I was surprised about this design on the 05 300, then I looked up the specs, better economy/power then the p t we had, and a real car, for a change, we installed yakohama h rated 215/65/17 tires and it is important to note the h rating, for the pure fact the car handles very well with these tires we bought the extended warranty , 23.6 mpg, however I was not driving with a steady foot, finally a real car true road car ,

Hi folks,I have a 2005 chrysler 300 base and Im suprised hearing some of the bad reviews about the base model.I read where people said it dont have power and thats not true it has more than a person needs plus great on gas. Only the people who are speed crazy would think that.Also some say its interior is cheap which is not true people who see it loves it.I see many 300s for sale with torn leather.Also people knock the steel wheels with hubcaps on them.Nothing wrong with that at least a person can change the hubcaps at a fair price whenever they want to while other owners are stuck with high priced wheels.I have friends who have the touring model and mine is more eye cathing.

Suspension is noisy with loud Thuds, Brake is noisy with sqeeks, underbody rattle, steering hardens in clod temperature, Cruise control failure, steering system wearing and all this in 13 months or by 65000 miles. The car is too low to bump the speed bumps in shopping mall parking lots. Speakers are poor quality with sound distortion at 40% volume. REar wheel is terrible to handle in winter with snow, my first and last experience.

Just wanted to write-in after 88,000 miles I still love my 300C as much as the day I bought it. I have had a few, mostly minor problems (headlight, EGR valve, cam sensor, differential seal leak, nav button). All of these have been covered by 100K warranty. Still have yet to replace the brakes! Gas mileage is excellent (22 combined MPG) as long as I don't mash the pedal too often. I would buy this car all over again if Chrysler is still around in a few years.

I had some great cars but there is something about my 300 that makes me feel good when driving it or looking at it.Its a base model with cool vanilla paint with a sun roof and a six cylinder motor.I read a comment saying the base 6 is sluggish which I have to say is not true.I have friends who have the 300 with 8 cylinder motors and I cant see much difference.I had a 4 cylinder Mustang and my 300 is better on gas.Im not sorry I got the base because its still an eye pleaser with more than enough power which people remark about when riding in it.

When I first saw the concept, I had to have this car. I can still find it in the parking lot. Everything else looks like a Lexus. It is a heavy, powerfull, stable, fast as sin, great looking vehicle. I now have over 60,000 miles. Only minor problems. Had to replace a mirror, a visor clip broke, have a wear problem on drivers leather seat, AC condenser failed (mfg does not evacuate long enough when new, leave water in them) had an alignment problem when new. Hard on tires though. Get Goodyear 60K tread guarantee and keep prorate at 30K. I still love this car. Got nav, satellite, can't live without them now.

I am a 21 yr old male and I have owned this car 3 months, the only problem so far is the headlights went out, other than that it has been a good car. Chicks love this car, and everyone even people in BMW's have stopped me to ask what that is, and everyone thinks this is a 50,000 dollar car when its a 20,000 dollar car. I would not recommend getting this car, maybe later if gas ever drops. I am only getting 19 mpg.

Not one squeak or rattle and very smooth ride. I know others have complained about the Continental tires, but they do supply tenacious grip in the corners. Chrysler got it right the first time!

Really enjoyed this vehicle, but lots of electrical problems. Power windows keep failing and digital read out mysteriously converted to German. MPG is average. If you don't keep the vehicle tuned up, it is atrocious. Excellent hwy car, poor in the city due to handling. Not in the class of Audi A4 or BMW 325.

I have owned my car for four years, it has given me dependable pleasure, comfort-style-and the dealership has been great to keep my car in top condition. I have no problems in the winter, my car always starts under the coldest of conditions, in snow if you go slow as conditions require you will be able to drive on most surfaces and hills. I have had the following parts replaced under warranty since purchase: Motors for front seat and car door windows. Extra battery in trunk replaced. Most recent part replaced, is a compressor went completely out, the dealership covered the cost leaving me with labor only. I have low miles considering I am the only driver of my car.

I have owned this car for almost 2 years and I'm just approaching 40k miles and over all i'm impressed with the looks and thats it, mecanicaly I have had nothing but headaches. The transmission slips and steering becomes difficult when its cold (I live in Canada), extremly rough idle and the dealer claims there is nothing wrong, I had to replace all speakers in the car, both rear power window motors twice, brake rotors at 15k and the OEM Goodyear tires stink they wear out fast and I had them replaced at 20k miles for a set of Michelins. This is my 3rd Chrysler and I won't be buying another any time soon and in fact I'm trading it for a Honda Accord EX V6 next week.

The best ever, so far

I hade a numbers of cars in my life span but never have I had a car that have been that reliable and comfortable as my 300 Touring. I love the design and my fuel economy have improved by adding a cold air intake to the engine. Fast, lots of torque, enough horsepower to maintaine the speed on the freeway at any time I drive. I had the car for a year and i bought it used with 10000 miles on it, now after 30000 miles it is going strong with not what so ever problems. If I would consider to exhange my vehicle I would probably buy a new SRT 8 this time with no considerations at all.

I have driven over 500,000 miles in the past 40 years either professionally or for travel and pleasure. That involves many types and makes of vehicles both domestic and foreign and includes luxury cars in both categories. With this experience as a basis I can say that this vehicle is one of the finest examples of automotive engineering I have ever driven! And based on the cost factor versus the finished product it could very well be the finest vehicle ever manufactured. Needless to say we are extremely pleased with this motor car. We have experienced the same responses from those that see it as some of the other reviews. People love it!

I adored this car from the moment I bought it. Looks cool, comfortable, roomy, handles like a dream. Until 3 months ago. Now, I have a very expensive paperweight on my hands I don't even dare drive. The car loses power at speed, locking out all control, making me a ton rock in the middle of the road. It now sits at the dealership, where they say "their computer can't find a problem." This is the FIFTH time it has been into the shop for the same problem. Chrysler's response when I contacted them? Tough luck, lady. Trade up to a new 300. It's paid for, so they aren't making any money off it. After many, many years as a loyal Chrysler owner-NEVER AGAIN!! Toyota dealership, here I come!

Wow! This car has it all and for the price it can't be beat by any of its competitors. Having owned Japanese autos from day one, I was amazed how wonderful this car felt on the road not to mention its unlimited power. The Hemi is smoother and more controlled than any multi-valve, VTEC, or supercharged engine.

This is the most fun car I've ever owned. I would not recommend the cheap 300 though. The whole experience is so much better when you get it for 40k instead of 20 whatever. It's a great ride, the Hemi is great, the nav. system is never wrong, I love this car and don't know what I'd rather drive! Sweet ride

We researched this vehicle extensively before buying and it has lived up to our expectations. It is very comfortable to drive long distances which we do and for highway driving gas consumption is reasonable. The power of the Hemi engine is fabulous for passing or to get away from tail-gaters. The Boston Acoustic sound system makes plain sitting in the car to listen to music a new use for the family car. Operational reliability has been excellent with no mechanical problems. Original tire wear has been excessive but tires have been replaced with higher wear rating ones. The car looks great and we still enjoy owning and using it after nearly three years.

MOPAR or no car, my 300C has been a terrific car. Great power, superb ride, beautiful looks. Had one issue early on with o-rings in the transmission cooler line, but that was fixed under warranty. That's what I get for power braking! No problems since other than a minor electrical problem with the passenger side rear view not returning from curb view when coming out of reverse.

We have had so many problems with our 2005 300C. I have been buying Chrysler and Dodge products all my life, up to this point I really have not had a problem. It is disapointing to see that Chrysler will not stand behind thier product when they make a bad one. The transmission slips when is it cold, the steering is dangerously stiff when cold. And the best is the rough idle, the dealer acknowleges there is a rough idle problem but states "since there is no trouble code they can not fix it, Chrysler won't allow us to tear into it with out knowing what is wrong with it". Can you say oxymoron. I am so disapointed. I am looking at Nissan and Toyota. This really hurts because I am a UAW employee.

I have had my 300 for about 2 years and just found out the go in the snow - does not. Whenever this vehicle senses ice or snow, the vehicle stalls to neutral, then when you try to go again, it does the same thing all over. So, the only thing you can do is chain up with as little as 1" of snow on the ground. Not to good in the Pacific Northwest in the winter. I thought this was a defect, but talking with other owners, they have had the same experience.

I bought the loaded 300C 9 months ago and loved the looks, power and creature comforts of the 300. I had to sell the car after 9 months and 28,000 miles because it rides like you are on a buckboard wagon. You feel every bump in the road yet the Chrysler dealer says the ride is normal after taking it for a drive. I had planned on driving it for a long time but could not stand the thought of driving it any longer. PS - Resale value has gone down drastically.

Well, just approaching 40000 miles. So far not a single issue aside from the loss of memory for the keys (a result of me running over a boulder in the middle of a highway). The dealer did a great job fixing everything and the car still drives well. Even winter driving is not bad and I live in Edmonton, Alberta.

The Chrysler 300 is a fun car to drive and has the appearance of a much more expensive automobile. I have had problems with the window motors in three of the doors (windows would not go down). All three window motors had to be replaced. I have also had problems with the child locks on both rear doors (when child lock is off adult passengers cannot open rear doors, so I have to get out and open doors from outside of the vehicle). I have had this problem checked, but it continues to reoccur. I have also had to have both sun visor clips replaced. They broke off a few weeks after purchase. Both of my fog lamps, for some reason cracked. I don't think rocks caused the cracks.

For the money there isn't another car that can hold a candle to this Chrysler 300. Now with 30,000 miles on it, we are just as pleased with it as when it was new. Dealer service here in a small town is a little less than I would like but they have backed the warranty completely on various small items. The most negative feature I can think of is the paint. We have the black and it seems to be very brittle, allowing rocks to readily chip the front end.

This car has been one of the greatest cars I have ever purchased. You cannot beat the comfort you experience on the Road. This car handles like a dream on the road. It has good gas mileage whether you are on the road of just doing average city driving. For the price I would recommend this to anyone looking for the elegant look, but affordable. We own a cadillac Eldorado and I prefer this car over that one any day. I am tall and it gives me the leg room I need for comfort, along with the fact that three adults can seat in the rear with total comfort.

This is a great car and my second 300. My first was a 300M bought new in 1999 and that was a fun car, but the 300C is by far the best car I have ever owned. If Chrysler keeps this up I will buy another one. The 300C SRT8 is the next one on my list.

Love the style and handling of this car, BUT problems started with blown fuses/bulbs, AC wouldn't get cold, headlights blow when weather turned cold (replaced 3). Pinging started, engine light came on (code P0405, cyl misfire). Chrysler recommended detonation process (remove carbon from valves),no help. Several more visits with engine light on (same code), found a crack in head gasket. Replaced head gasket(Aug 05, 8,000+ miles). More visits for blown fuses--wire burned at muffler, replaced front control module. Jun06 started having bad vibration in gas pedal and engine light on again. Removed carbon again-- 99.9% sure fixed, 2 days later vibration back. Currently pursuing lemon law.

the team pulled it together on this car. Even the gas mileage is hard to beat as the 300c drops 4 cylinders while you drive on the hwy. It uses only 4 cylinders when you aren't accelerating. Beats most 6 cylinder engines on the hwy but has the kick of a Hemi when you need it.

The 300C may go down as a milestone car in that it is a fresh, bold design rarely seen in American cars (European influenced or not) for over three decades. These cars have style, power, comfort and dependability to rival many imports costing up to twice as much. There has obviously been a lot of thought put into these cars ... except for a very important component - THE TIRES! They are so bad that I will not be surprised if an episode similar to the Ford/Firestone issue occurs. There is no doubt that both Chrysler & Continental know that there are several issues with these tires, but there has been no recall or acknowledgement from either. My tires failed inspection at 17k--unacceptable!

What a car. Nice to drive and I feel very safe with all air bags the electronic steering system and the AWD.I drove big brother the Merc's and yes a little softer ride but thew 300 is great. If I have one comeback it is the navagation system, for $1400 it could be a lot more and the car arrived with a data disc three years old in development.

Handles very well. Power on demand. All options except sat radio, and AWD. Nav system works great. Continental tires caused it to lead hard right. Tread depth half gone after 7000 miles on all 4 tires. Chrysler and Continental refuse to correct problem. Chrysler has issued 2 service bulletins about leading off. Had to buy new tires myself. Since replacing tires, no complaints. After changing all lubricants (engine, tran, diff)to Amsoil synthetics, hiway mileage at 60 jumped to 31.5, combo city/country 15 mile work commute mileage =24.8. MDS engine system works flawlessly so far. Parksense, rainsensing wipers, sound system, works great. Body styling turns heads. Makes you smile while driving

I have now owned my Chrysler 300C for 22 months and they finally cured my dash rattle after 12 visits! This car is good value for what you receive, although it is not in the premium luxury class. It handles well, but not like the Germans and the interior materials are not of the top makers quality. They mar and scratch easily. However, the drivetrain is awesome and decent fuel economy is obtainable. Continental tires are the other problem. They are too soft on compound and too stiff in the sidewall, which gives some harshness to the ride but good grip and lousy wear. Will replace at 24K.

The styling of this auto has garnered raves since I first purchased it. The "C" model has certainly been an attention getter. Powerful engine, smooth transmission, reasonably good fuel consumption and a quiet cabin are all positives for this auto. Less pleasurable, at least for this owner, is Chrysler's addiction to the idea that the seats have to be hard and firm. We owned a 1993 Concorde prior to this car and it was cursed with the same type seats which caused me great discomfort after a few hours driving. Others in the family have made the same comment. Also, the suspension on this car seems to be given to allowing more wallow and roll in curves than expected. Try out one first.

This car is a fun car to drive. It responds as soon as you step on the gas. The handling of the car at top speed is moderate. The comfort of my car is excellent. It's very spacious and the detail of the interior is cool. The exterior of the car is like an eye candy to people. Every where I go I get compliments on the car.

only comfort disappointment. 8way power seat was not even offered as an option for passenger in 2005. manual recliner only. they were standard in 2006. my three prior chryslers had them as standard equiptment. it is not that they were unfarmiliar with the tecnology. if my primary objective had not been the hemi,i would have passed on the car. of course we all understand that telling a customer that it will be available next year is not good sales technich. my three prior chrysler were purchased from chrysler corporation and this was from daimler-chrysler. that could account for the difference in philosphy.

The 300 is a very good car with one major problem,the front tires are not wearing properly.I noticed that at 12,400 miles they seemed to be cupping. I had them rotated at 7,000 miles and again at 10,200 miles.At 12,400 miles I noticed the cupping and had them rebalanced and rotated again.The service mgr. said thatChrysler knew they had a problem but as of yet had no fix or solution to it.I called the Chrysler customer customer relations hotline and explained to them my problem and they said that the cupping wear was normal and they would not do any thing about it, I had the front end aligned at the dealer where I bought the car at 15,400 miles {no charge under warranty},but no real solution

The car has met every expectation in the 2 years I've owned it. Fit and finish have been superb, as well as the performance and mileage. I'm getting 18 mpg in town and 26 on the highway with mid-grade gas. The cylinder deactivation system is virtually invisible to the driver.

I am overall happy with the vehicle, except for the fact that I have holes in the floor on the driver side and the carpeting is coming undone! I have contacted Chrysler and the dealership for assistance, but to no avail. The floor up front is weak, as if something was missing from the building process. I would like to know whether or not any other Consumers were having the same if not similar problems. A new car should not have carpeting wear and tear at this stage. I have 60,000 miles on my vehicle now, and it is time for a front end alignment. I make sure that I do my regular maintenance on time. But the carperting is my main complaint.

Well were kind of old timers; I got my 05 Chrysler 300C in August of 2004. Nothing but happiness since then except for the Continental tires. No tranny issues, no wind leak, no complaints at all. I’ve got 19.5K on it now and my experience mirrors the long term test at “Automobile” Magazine. Their 7 or 8 months into a full years test and using 12 drivers report no issues. My 300C goes like hell and gives me a rush whenever I take it out. The Hemi is simply Awesome. My Wife usually takes it so I end up with here Camry. It’s a pretty good car except for loosing head gaskets (2) and requiring no-doz because its as boring as driving a toaster.

This may be the wife's car, but I get it on weekends. Mannnn, this baby sure does fly. Although the Hemi can be a gas-eater, you can learn to adjust your driving style to hit 17mpg + in city driving, and 22 + on the freeway (CC @ 92). With CC @ 75, nets about 24.3 mpg. We love the car and it's every bit deserving of its Car of the Year Status. We were disappointed with Consumer Reports (Japanese Biased) rating on this vehicle. I'm over 6' tall and do not feel claustrophobic inside the spacious cabin. It does seat 5 large adults, comfortably. This vehicle is a modern day warrior which can easily run with the Muscle of the Late 60's and Early 70's, especially when you remove the speed limiter.

The main problem I had is with the front spoiler it was so low that I went over the parking block at the gas station OK but when I backed up it pulled the whole front end off. It cost me $1500.00 to fix it, I then did it again at the bank so I took it off and it fine now.

Continental tires were third rate for a first rate car. Chryslers engineers only shame here. If you check consumer ratings figure no more than 20,000 miles.Only disappoint in car. Stereo fantastic - Navi second best I have seen (Acura no.1) Bluetooth functions great for those hands free calls.Maintence free except standard check ups.

I was caught up in the car's great looks and comfort and then sold my 2000 300M for the Silver 300C. I have taken several road trips with this vehicle and got anywhere from 24-26 MPG depending on speed, around town it gets 19-21 MPG. I have not had any problems with the car. The great looks of the car still turns people's heads. I liked it so much, I bought another 300C Jade Green for my wife 4 months after mine. Our daughter just bought a 2006 CHARGER with a HEMI and loves its performance too. Chrysler has truly found a winner here. We actually saw 300C's while in Russia and Belarus last May 2005 and they turned heads there too!

If you live in a major city, don't do this car a diservice. It is a land yacht, it yearns for the open road. It wants to GO FAST!

To give you a frame of reference, I previously owned a Cadillac STS. The 300C is far superior(!). If the performance of this car is what we get for the marriage of German and American car companies, then I am all for it (and I was born, raised, and still live in the Detroit area). No squeaks, No rattles. Also, I never had a car with stability control before. Some opinions have challenged the necessity of it, and I might have agreed, but I don't now! On an icy street, if you make a turn and you sense that the back end is going to go, at the second you get that feeling, you start to sense wheels braking independently to right the car. I then tried to do a donut to test it, but couldn't

Aside from the fact the Dealer wouldn't offer much of a price break, the car itself is well worth the $38,600 sticker price, infact it's a steal! The minor problems I've had with the car attributed to build quality were; wiper/turn signal stick was defective and the wipers would come on when using turn signals, and the wipers in the auto position. Front end camber was off and caused tire wear on edges of front tires. Transmission plug was lose, and caused a minor fluid leak.

Vehicle constantly pulls to the right, molding falling off, moon roof shades opens on its own, rear windows occasionally dont open, ie. electrical problems.

I think that the 300 is the best car that chrysler has made in a long time. I'm a dodge man my self but chrysler makes them both so I can't say much. My wife and I love the car. You have to drive one then you will buy one.

This car is awesome but it tends to pull to the right. I have had it in the shop and have been told there is nothing more to do. I took it somewhere else and they fixed it but it is starting to pull again. The style is beautiful. People look all the time. It really moves and handles well except for the pulling. I was told it is due to the hemi. Makes no sense to me. Beautiful classy car.

I bought my 300 last March and I love it completely. I hate to drive anything else now. The luxuary and comfort of my 300 is incrediable. I recommend only this car. I have had offers to upgrade or trade in my 300 and I just can't bear to be without "MY" 300, the answer is always NO thank you.

My 300C is one incredible machine. The performance is unbelieveable and you always have power, and then some, when you need it. No squeaks, rattles; just quiet. Gas mileage ranges from 19 to 21 mpg. My best mileage was 23.2 going between Stockton and LA. The car's ride is firm but comfortable. Seats could be a little softer. The only problem with car was some water had made it's way into the transmission fluid. The tranny filler tube was resealed and the fluid was flushed. Not a single problem since. The steering feel is perfect. The brakes will stop you on a dime. The car is rock solid and a blast to drive. In short, buy it! You won't regret it!

My 05 300 Sig Series is a good value overall. It has enough power to put a smile on my face and it is confident in the turns. I have had to make several trips to my local dealer for repair work. A part of the interior of the sunroof broke and I have had a strange idle/near stall problem. The idle problem took 3 trips to resolve. Eventually a electronic module was replace on the 2nd trip and the computer was reprogrammed (dealer forgot to do so) on the 3rd trip. I just noticed that, like others, my rear driver side window only works when it feels like it. Since this is the first year of this car, I can overlook a few bugs (similar problems w/ previous Caddy and Aurora)

As you can see I titled this 300C!! because the car has caused so much excitement. Never have I driven a large sedan with as much comfort and kick. The multi-phase hemi engine provides respectable fuel mileage and the ability to move when needed. The exterior design turns heads no matter where you are and the ride is excellent.

This car is by far the best value on the road today in the luxury class. It quietly floats down the highway at 85 MPH, get a radar detector, you'll need it. Unless you live in Colorado or like area, don't bother getting the AWD. I live in Northern Illinois and have the standard Traction Control and Electronic Stability Program and it is all you need. I was amazed during the first snow storm I drove in. Styling is unique and eye catching, get use to alot of long stares as you drive by other cars. If you're considering a Lexus LS 430, any Lincoln, Infinity M45 or S class Mercedes, do yourself a favor, and test drive the 300C. You'll end up saving $15,000 or more.

The Chrysler 300C is without a doubt the most incredible vehicle I've ever owned. From its stylish beefy good looks to the interior space and comfortable ride it is a pure joy to drive and look at. A real eye catcher. You'll have to get used to people slowing down to look you over on the road as well as getting eyed at the service station. Chrysler designed and built a truly unique vehicle I'm proud to own.

This is the first Chrysler that I've owned and I loved every minute of it... until Aug 31 when I got T-Boned. After that I Love AND Respect it. The car performed exactly as it should. I was hit by a van running a stop sign. A square hit to the rear drivers door and rear tire. The car started to spin until the ESP kicked in and straightened it out, because of that the car went straight into the ditch and didn't slide sideways and roll! The rear seat was contacted by the door panel but no breach into the passenger compartment. No windows broke. This is an example of excellence in design. Thank-you Chrysler

Not only is this car georgous, but it is extremely comfortable, has great pick up (so I can get on those expressways), and reliable. My gas mileage is at 25 mpg around town and 30 on the road. My mechanic tells me that once I hit 10,000 m., it will get even better! I also like the fact that the control of everything is right at my finger tips. I don't have to take my hands off the wheel for hardly anything! Not one day has gone by that someone hasn't asked me about the car. They all fear that it is expensive because it looks so good! I assure them that the price is within the reach of almost everyone. We have owned many cars over the years, but I love this car better than any!

Loved the 300C until it stopped going forward and reverse at only 3,500 miles. Has been in the shop for 8 days now and dealership can't figure out the problem. They've taken the transmission apart and are waiting to hear from Chrysler on what to do next. I've submitted my 15 day notice to Chrysler to have it fixed or give me back my money per my state's lemon law. Needless to say, we're greatly disappointed.

The 2005 Chrysler 300 has got to be the worst car I have ever bought. Just let me start form the top. It takes for ever in a day to cool off inside, it has stalled on me about five different times, the drivers side back window goes up and down when it fells like it, it vibrates excessively when it comes to a stop most of the time the radio gets the poorest reception of any car I have owned manufactured in this decade. I plane on getting rid of the car ASAP. I pay to much money for such a crappie car I should have gone with the Cadillac CTS. All this car has is looks and nothing else I would recommend a Bike at Wal-Mart before I would recommend A Chrysler.

I had purchased this car because i love the way it looks. I originally wanted the 300C model but i couldnt risk the MPGs of a V8 with today's gas prices. SO i took the next best thing. I purchased a touring model and about everything about it. But for future reference get the upgraded stereo because the base model stereo sounds low budget and tinny. has the V8 looks but with the V6 power.

This car is the one you want to drive. It handles like a luxury vehicle. It feels like a luxury vehicle. And yes, it looks better than any other luxury vehicle on the road. The inside of the cockpit is ultra roomy. The leather seats are the most comfortable I have been in. The V6 has as much power as I'll ever need - it will knock you back in your seat easily. If there is one weakness, the brakes seem to lag a little but then again this is a large luxury vehicle and I'm not used to driving it! I found a demo model (4700 miles) that the dealer was willing to deal on.

Bought the car about a year ago because I loved the muscle car look and the pure power from the Hemi. After the initial euphoria passed though, the warts started to come through. I wore through my tires in 22K mi, fit and finish issues started to appear such as cracks in the plastic (fake wood) door handles, and steering wheel controls sticking. Add to that gas mileage of 15 w/ a combo of city and hway and I had no choice but to trade it in. The 23Kmiles that I had it for cost me $16K as I got $26.5K for the trade. Mechanically the car is great, lots of power and great ride, but quality is still Chrysler and gas mileage is absolutely awful! 4WD is a must in the NE, RWD is awful in the snow!

I have never owned an American automobile, other than as a hand-me- down during my high school, and early college days. I've owned a VW bus, an XKE Jaguar, a Lotus Europa twin-cam special, a VW GTI, Schirocco, Corado, an Audi A4 and am now driving an Audi TT. I have driven the 300C and it is the most visually and performance satisfying American automobile in memory! The performance might be enough to get people excited, it is very rewarding to move this large car so handily, but the "snooty baby Bently exterior with the touch of "gangsta pimp" puts the 300C in the crossfire of strong traditional and contemporary elements. The interior is very pleasing in details and plenty of room!An A+ !!

It is surprisingly economical for a large sedan with such power, and the heralded transition from 4 cylinders to 8 is indeed seamless. Most of my driving is on highways, and that is where the 300C really shines. It can cruise effortlessly at triple digit speeds in silent comfort. Great car!

Good gas mileage on the highway (drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco on one tank of gas). I can't tell you number of times I have been on the road and saw people driving those expensive Mercedes, BMW's and Lexus, slow down to check out my car. Love the after market products, purchased a Bently style grill and chrome panels for the B-Posts. Had it for almost a year now and only had one minor recall.

This is an incredible automobile. It should someday be a classic or at least a collector favorite. I have had show cars and hot rods my whole life so I have an intimate knowledge of cars. This one does just about everything right. You can't ignore the brutal exterior looks or the sound of the Hemi under acceleration. The handeling is absolutly superb for a vehicle of this size, weight and shape. As you probably know, everything you do to a car to improve either the handling or power or what have you is a trade off. Chrysler has hit all of these nails right on the head. If it handled better the ride would suffer. More power the mileage and smoothness would be gone. Chrysler has hit a HOME RUN

when I purchased this vehicle I thought I had purchased the perfect car. It regularly got 23 mpg. but now the best I can squeeze out of it is a mere 18.5 mpg. I am told that this is normal for a car to get worse mileage (BULL) after it is broken in and there is no way to tell if it is running on 8 cylinders or on 4 cylinders.

Never thought i would own a Chrysler. By chance rented the Touring version and was extremely impressed with the fit and finish, handling and comfort. I had bought a dodge avenger for my daughter,a college student, and watched her car quickly deteriorate during a 3yr period. I must have put half as much money into repairs relative to what I initially paid for the vehicle.Her car looked good and drove well but quality and dependability was poor to say the least.In any event I swore I'd never own another Chrysler product-that was until I test drove a 300c, with all wheel drive. I had test driven the LS, Avalon, A6,Infiniti and STS before the 300c. The 300c was undoubtedly the best car.

I bought the first AWD version to be found in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and have now owned it for 6 months. Handling is very smooth. Acceleration is a bit slow at low speed but quick and without hesitation after that-- similar to that of the Mercedes line. I show toy dogs and have found the trunk space to be ample for a crate dolly, tack box, folding chairs, and luggage for hotel trips. Dog travel in crates comfortably in the back seat and the rear air is nice for them.Trip odometer tends to stick and refuse to display the mileage at times.

I had always driven SUV's. I was a little hesitant about going to a car because my sons are 6'. They said they had as much room leg room in the 300C as they did in the Suburban & Tahoe! It is a blast to drive and I dont think i will ever go back to any other vehicle. I'm waiting for the new 2006 RTS(?) version to come out and will possible buy that!

With less than 2500 miles on the odometer the air bag lite up and would not go out. The defroster stopped working. Chalk up 3+ weeks in the shop with the interior gutted to replace the defective main wiring harness plus other defective parts the dealer was great. They didn't mfg the car ,just repaired it. Interior is"cheap" for a 35k car. Many good things on my 2001 lhs were deleted. Ie good leather seats, instant mileage calculations, seat back pockets,automatic adjusting seat for 2 ,trunk treatment, tilting side view mirrors when backing up. Display on dash between tach and odometer is diffucult to see and read.

As a widow, not knowing much about cars, I depend on my dealership a lot. My 300 is leased and I have free oil changes every three months which is wonderful. I know they will watch everything going on with my car and be honest about any problems should there be any. I love driving my 300, just as I loved driving my Sebring convertibles in the past. But unlike other cars I've had, the 300 is super confortable, it takes the bumps in the road with ease, I feel safe inside with all the air bags and GPS, and I love the metal flaked paint and sun roof. A little piece of heaven.

I traded in my SLS and bought this car. I have owned cars from 1962 to 1964 vettes to 57 chevy's to 454 Chevelles LS6 and although I did not buy the Hemi I did drive one and with two small kids I went with the v6 do to pricing since I have a 6000 sq ft Victorian that costs more to keep up than any hot rod but the car has been awesome and even though its a v6 it still has the cool body and when I am crusing the highway at 95 it feels great. As for any law inforcent officers reading that I was just kidding. My father had a Rolls Royce and when I pull into my Grand Queen Ann I feel like I am in a Rolls Royce.

This car truly brings back the days of the 60's muscle cars. My wife and I were looking for a new car and this time it was her choice to make. I had been privately salivating over the 300C, but never made mention of this to her. She said, 'let's go test the 300C, that's a great looking car!" She test drove it, as did I and the rest is history. The car drives as great as it looks. Its appeal transcends generations. At full throttle, it will push you back in the seat. This 4100 lbs. beheamoth can rocket. It handles nicely, especially on the freeway. The car is comfortable and the interior is roomy. Neither of us have experienced a claustrophobic effect as reported in CR. Great car!

My AWD C model is a 2006. I'm very impressed with this car. I came off a BMW 745i Lease, and this car for almost half the money is so much better with more options. Finally an American car that can keep up with the European's. I'm so glad I purchased this car, I feel it will have good re-sale value. I'm also impressed with the Hemi engine, very smooth, but I wish they would have made some better rumble from the exhaust.

I have been back to the dealer many times over the last 6 months for these problems: 1) Even on minor grades, car will roll backwards in drive when I take my foot off the brake. 2) Car shifts hard from reverse to drive. 3) At low RPM acceleration, car up-shifts hard from 2nd to 3rd 4) Generally poor quality control on the painting. The first time I bought gas I noticed the paint primer clearly visible on inside of gas cap door. First time sun shinned on the side of car I noticed the interior metal of the rear wheel wells was bare. 5) I have been listening to the same radio station for 22 years on my 52 mile trip to work.

It has been a great purchase so far. The air conditioning clutch has been a problem. Chrysler sent out a notice on it, but not a fix. The car sounds like it has an engine knock. Otherwise it's all good. The interior should have some better appointments, not so much plastic, and the carpet coul be a better quality. The car drives very well, no surprises.

My 300 is awesome! Love the drive, love the look. It's fun because my 14 year old nephew thinks it's an awesome car and yet I have older people also stop me frequently to tell me how much they like the look. Definitely crosses generations. :-) Don't like: the dark interior, shows every spot of fuzz. Wish I had leather instead of cloth. Still wouldn't like the dark carpet. I clean it one day and you can't tell the next. Problems: Only problem I've had is that sometimes while idling it acts like it wants to die. I scheduled maintenance last week, but wasn't able to make it in. Will try again and see what the problem is.

I have been a car freak my entire life,show cars and hot rods have been my passion, I have had my cars featured in hot rod magazine and engines annual, so I know cars. The 300c is the 15th new car I have purchased and is now my favorite. Everything designed into a car has some sort of compromise, you want to go fast? Usually rough idle and poor milage. You want to go thru a corner at high speed? forget a good ride. The 300c has blended all of the things I love in a car in such a way that I can't find any major flaws in it. It is plenty fast, it handles very well, the ride is certainly acceptable as is the fuel consumption. The guages are well thought out and steering wheel controls are great

This is the second 300 I have owned the first one I had for about 2 weeks. I was lied to by the dealer and refused complete Carfax. When I went on line and purchased my own carfax I returned to the dealership and we worked out a deal on a different 300. Now to tell you the problem that I still have and other owners also have. There is a clunking noise in the rear of the car. It sounds like something in the trunk rolling around when you take off from a stopped position. The dealership has no idea what it is and suggested that I keep asking when I bring it in for the oil changes if there has been a notice posted for it.I would like to know if anyone has had this problem fixed yet on their car

This Car is a TOTAL FLOP! I have had nothing but problems since the first week. There is a MAJOR design flaw in at least 10% of these cars (And the Dodge Magnum) where the car pulls (leads, drifts) to the right and it is dangerous to drive and hard to control. Read all the posts in the Chyrsler Forums here on this website to learn more! Chrysler won't admit to this problem, but they keep buying back peoples cars...I wonder why?!?!?!? From what I've read, the 2006's have the problem too! Don't get stuck like me, stay away from Chrylser-Dodge-Jeep!

This vehicle is fun to drive and extremely responsive. The traction control gives one total confidence in tight turns. In my opinion this is the best car diamlerchrysler has ever made. I own an old hemi muscle car and i have to say the "go" factor is very much the same as the hemi super bee.

Great car it is very stylish, turns tons of heads and makes big difference in business credibility. The gas mileage is really not that good (i bought the c with the big power...So i guess its a wash) hope it holds up over time....Love it so far.

Great car styling and ride as well as other features, but absolutely HORRIBLE on even the slightest amount of snow, even with after market snow tires on all fours. Truly DANGEROUS. Rear wheel drive is a big mistake if using the car in areas of snow accumulation. Traction control seems to be no help at all even on a 1/4 inch of fresh snow. Rear wheels just spin.

Best car I have ever driven. It is fast beyond belief, handles and stops like a true sports car, and can carry 5 people in absolute comfort. The engine growls like music. Feels solid and fit and finish is remarkable. The suspension is firm yet comfortable. Such an attention getter: turns heads wherever I go, people walk over and ask me about it.

Pure joy. 60's USA muscle meets 21st century Mercedes hi-tech & refinement. Quiet, smooth, luxury comfort w/ enough get-up-and-go to scare my wife! Haven't been in snow yet, but expect AWD offers the the same foul weather reliability as my old SUV. The "Bentley Lite" exterior styling is solid & bold, not stuffy. Per Car&Driver a Bentley has marginaly upscaled cup holders ... and can be yours for only about a 1/4 million more than a loaded 300C @~$40K. My advice: forget the "entry" models, spend $40K on a Hemi loaded up with options & feel like you're KING of the road! Without question the best luxury sedan value on the market by far - deserves its Car of the Year status.

What a great car!

I have had this car for 3 weeks, still less than 1000 miles. Avg. mileage (outer suburban area commuting) is 17.6 mpg. Car is quiet and extremely comfortable. Doors sound like bank vault. I like the back up alarm because you cannot see trunk from inside car. Very smooth, stable and responsive power. Radio (Sound pkg II) sounds great. Seats very comfortable. Styling is beautiful to me. Originally wanted dark color; dealer had Satin Jade Pearl which I am glad I bought. Looks classy and does not show dirt. Still new...no complaints; everyone at work has been impressed. Build quality better than earlier Chryslers; swore off 'em in the 90s but tried again after 10 years; so far,great!

For me the jury is still out - initially a great car but I am very concerned with Chryslers poor reliability in the past. Although it is a company car and will be returned @ 60K. Forget about it could have come with this or that, if this car has just above average reliability Chrysler has hit a grand slam. Bang for the buck is awesome...

I have always been a GM owner and was looking for nice upper level luxury/sport sedan. I didn't like the current trends in styling at GM and was considering a used BMW or Mercedes until I saw the 300C. Elegant styling with performance overtones that does not disapoint. The interior is big even for my 6'4" size in front or rear seats. The comfort is great with good support in the seats and well thought out controls. The Mercedes influence is very apparent with good handeling and a solid, quiet ride. The american muscle under the hood is well worth the money and makes highway onramps and long trips effortless. With every possible option mine just did break $40k. Great product, great value.

This car draws a lot of glances, parked or moving. It's appearance is reminiscent of the chopped stock car body. It's size and weight(4500 pounds) belies it's quickness. It can deliver enough torgue to the tires to generate sufficient smoke for a three alarm fire!! No problem in accelerating from 50 to 70 MPH. The interior is well appointed. The GPS system has been an added plus in reaching destinations in unfamiliar areas. Buttons on the steering wheel provide the driver with full capability to check the various program systems. The analog clock provides a bit of nostalgia for those of us over 50. It's grand to experience a V-8 again and I'm not talking about vegetable juice!

I ordered the 300c in june and it was delivered in late august. It was worth the wait. We get alot of attention everywhere we go. The traffic down here in florida is horrific, so the power of the hemi engine and the suspension work well getting in and out of traffic.I would recommend this automoblie to anyone. This is the best car i ever owned and i plan to keep it along time --it could be a collectors item someday !!!

I would have written sooner, but I was busy driving this car. It took me about 4 months to finally purchase this vehicle and I love it! I have driven Mercedes, BMW, Acura, Cadilac etc. and I continued to come back to the 300 Limited. Didn't really need the Hemi, and I wanted to keep my payments at a certain amount. This car handles beautifully. I cannot believe the looks I get in this car. I have the "Brilliant Black" and I love the paint job this vehicle has on it. Debating on whether to get bigger tires then the factory 17 inch clads that come with it, but it seems to be nice the way it is. There is not much to add to this beauty, it comes with everything you need and more!

I have had my 300 Limited for about 60 days and almost everyday I get some very positive remarks from people about how nice that car looks. It's a real head turner! Don't let the Hemi fool you. The 6 cylinder Limited with AWD has plenty of power and agility. I suggest getting the NAV and SIRIUS. I never use a map anymore and I'm nodding my head to the beat of the music all the way to my destination. It's HOT!

Have had the vehicle for about 10 days and think it is a fabulous performer and value for the price paid. Have had (and still have) Mercedes since 1970. BMW, and Jaguar. This is the first "American" car I've owned in years. The Mercedes engineering and influence is obvious. Ride seems comparable to the E Series. Terrific automobile.

If you were turned off by Chrysler products back in the K-car days, it's time to take another look. The new 300 series is the first significant product of the Dailmer-Chrysler merger that combines German engineering with Detroit muscle. Basically, you get a solid-feeling, quiet, roomy sports sedan with more zoom-zoom than those other guys.

I appreciate the styling of this car immensly... and have others tell me the same constanty. I would like better fuel economy in a car. I've averaged 18.6 mpg (nice computer feature). I guess for the size of car and luxury, that's really not bad efficiency. The Sirius radio is a must-have!! If you don't get a Chrysler 300, still get Sirius!!

I turn more heads and have met more interesting people, since driving "my blessing". I call it, "my blessing" because I have been blessed eminsely since driving it. I would buy it again and again.

As a typical hater of american made vehicles, I astounded myself by taking a double take the first time I saw this amazing vehicle. At the time I was riding in my german made suv which I had just purchased. When my wife started to complain that she needed a new vehicle, I jumped at the opportunity to own this vehicle. For the money outstanding vehicle. Since it's my wife car, the engine size is adequate. I've added a number of aftermarket features which has added trememdously to the overlook of the already classy looking vehicle. Just looking at the vehicle not many people will know that this car is a base model. We love it.

A bit confusing, at first, coming from a Sebring convertible to a big sedan but I now am very comfortable driving it. Maybe because I was used to the convertible but I seem fascinated by the quietness of my new car. I love just about everything this car offers. In 1976 I owned a Coupe de Ville and thought that was quite a car but this Chrysler surpasses that one in just about every way. I love my new car.

Love the styling and the solid feel of the chassis. Can't count how many people have come up to me to ask questions. Everybody is very excited about this car. Engine is smooth as silk and very strong. Tranny does its job well too. Seats, gauges, nav system and stereo are great. Small windows look great and I have no problem with the outward visibility. Negatives: Bins on front doors are made of really cheap plastic. I have a few interior rattles that are bugging me, but no more than any other car I have owned, including so-called quality benchmarks like Lexus and Acura. I have owned them all and this car - whether it is American, Canadian or German - competes strongly on all fronts.

I can fit evrything I used to load in the back of my SUV into the truck, it's huge.

This car's unique style is what first drew my attention. I like the way it is a blast from the past in its design. The 300 Touring offers a nice smooth ride and the 250 HP V6 has ample power for the type of driving that most folks do. The power and larger body size does come with a price, I find that I get about 18-20 MPG in the city.

Loads of leg room ..Navigation system a must have...Great family car unreal truck space....Everyone looks at the car ...Worth every penny so far. I love it.

After waiting over three months to take delivery of our Chrysler 300C, it finally arrived. An extremely well assembled unit, nice fits inside and out. That all lasted about three weeks,and then the problems started. With no warning whatsoever, the battery was totally dead,and we're now working on number four battery! Just one electrical problem after another! More often than not, it's back to the dealer so they can search for the problem. In 3-1/2 months we have managed to drive it 1349 kms (800 miles) Things such as dash warning lights (engine, ESP/BSN) inop auto wipers, inop daytime running lights and who knows what's next! Other than that, a beautiful car...wish I could drive it!

Driving the car is a joy, but is difficult to get used to the people relly looking very hard at the car. t sure attracts much attention. Wsh te ar was avalable wth chroe wheels. It sure would have added to the look! The ability to customize the looks is easy. It was worth waiting for!

For the nost part I love the car. However, there are a few things that could stand improvement: The ride is a little stiff. Vision is rather poor due to the narrow windshield and gas mileage is terrible in city driving, which one should expect with the power plant in this beauty. My insurance tripled of course, but I don't give a damn. A great automobile.

30,000 miles already in 8 months. 27 mpg. I do a lot of highway miles. Not a single major problem. Great BA sound system. I used to drive BMWs, in fact this 300 has more luggage room than a 740IL, it is as wide, only 8 inches shorter, the 2001 740IL costed 72 grand. BMW 740IL had a leaky valve gasket, VAnos problem, power steering leak, instrument display replaced, all at 40,000 miles. Talk about high maintenance. German or European cars are not all that they are cracked up to be.

AWD is amazing, i tested both the rwd and awd, the awd is amazing on michigan roads and even helped when pulling out after snowstorm that michigan took. Amazing car and i am getting the tires replaced(not the rims) to 245x55x18 size. Better traction than the continetal and wider tread means more rubber on the ground. The visibility when looking out cant see the traffic light. But who cares when pushing the gas on the green is smooth. I use the auto-stick alot amazing power and tire streaks on the road.(HEHE). The interior is well done and no complains.

Love this car. It is a real head- turner, too. We bought a black 300C this month and my husband and I both love to drive it...but it's my car and I let him drive it sometime! All the guys at work love the way it looks like a muscle car but also looks like a luxury car. The black metalic is just beautiful. We also looked at a Silver one at the dealer that was gorgeous but decided on the black. A lady I work with wants one now....she drive a black Lexus and was thrilled to see all the bells and whistles that my car has but the Lexus does not (for a tremendous difference in price!). What a bargain this car is! No other luxury car can come close to the price for the options available.

the car was great the first 90 days or so...since then, the car has a DRAMATIC pull to the right, what i thought was an alignment problem. Chrysler has had the car in for servicing 3 times already and now tell me that it HAS BEEN a problem for them on the C model and they are "trying" to find a fix to the problem...they expect a "bulletin" from detroit in the near future, whenever that might be...they tell me that because of the 18in tires and the suspension system, it creates a calibration problem...it has been very discouraging that they have had my car for a total of 9 days and i have still the same problem, which they knew they could not fix...no more chryslers for this consumer!!!!!

My last two cars were Maximas. They are fabulos cars. But when I first laid eyes on the C coupled with the motor and price, I was sold. Don't think you can buy this much car for the $$$. I don't put that many miles on my car so it will be awhile before I can comment on reliability and build quality. If it's anywhere near that of my Nissans, this car will have turned the page on North American automobiles.

Bought the car at the suggestion of my wife. Traded in an 02 Lexus LS 430. Get more head turns and wow type comments than I ever experienced with my Lexus even thought it is a lot less expensive. Power to spare and you feel special driving it. Because of the stylish cut of the windows viewing out the back sides is somewhat compromised, but the styling makes it worthwhile. Handles very well and is extremely quietMy car is quipped with Sirius and I won't own another car without Sirius. We travel from home a lot nad being able to bring in both music and talk radio without losing a station is awesome. We almost never use the CD player. Would recommend the car to anyone,

I have no problems at all with either. I love the roominess of the vehicle and the smaller details that make my drive so comfortable. The first time I saw this car on the road I wanted to find out more about it. I went online to get an idea of the price and just about fell over. Beauty and affordability!! I was hooked. After the test drive there was no doubt this was and is the car for me and my family.

When the 1955 Chrysler C300 was introduced 50 years ago, I wanted one. I was only 14 at the time, but that was my dream car. I finally got one. I have owned 27 cars since 1958, (mostly new luxury models), and this 2005 300C is by far the best of the bunch. It is high off the ground (you don't feel like you are sitting on the road), it is extreamly stylish, very powerful, and best of all very comfortable. It is quiet, smooth, and full of suprises. It is truly a "Luxury Muscle Car". It is my dream car.

Everything is laid out well and interior seems very durable. Car will fit anybody with seat, pedal and steering wheel adjustments. It is a BIG car....much more so than it looks from the outside. Interior noise is minimal and the ride is ultra smooth. Easy to speed in this car as it rides so smooth and quiet. I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a lower cost luxury car with good looks, lots of room and lots of power.

The seductive exterior of our C is not a lie. The experience of driving, no not just driving, entering the car, slipping into the seats, hitting the button that gives us our driver choices, keeps our spirits bubbly. When driving could become a mere mode of getting to our chosen location, this car makes it an occasion. The Sirius radio gives you music to fit any mood with news at the touch of the button and sound quality is superb. A refined instument cluster is clean in appearance but has the solid look of class. My husband fell in love with the Chrysler 300C at first sight. I tried not to get excited about getting one, but driving ours off the lot was a heady sensation. I love it.

The 3.5 V-6 is very responsive and makes it fun to drive. The Boston Acoustics sound system with satellite radio and 6 disc changer sounds awesome. I definitely think this is the best car on the market for the money.

I test drove a lot of cars in my price range before choosing the 300. The handling and performance was amoung the very best. When you add in the Bentley like looks and all the goodies that come with the signature series why settle for some car that makes it look like your alway driving a rental?

How sad it is that this car is flat and boring inside with supportive seating that feel hard and cinder box comfortable.The leather lacks that butter soft feel of a luxury sedan,but wait the right side of the front seat doesn't work the same way as the driver seat..... What's up with that??? Try adjusting this seat, a surprise that clearly show this is a One person's show-off car, not a family car for the WHOLE FAMILY. Try riding in the back seat, SAD, SAD, SAD,....again two persons and cat?? The lack of space caused by center floor HUMP is showing how Backward this company is moving. The visor is too small, the center CD Tape console is too hard to use, and glove compartment area is very small.

Well built car, solid, quiet, smooth ride; however the RWD does have a better ride. Great interior, with all the right features, and excellent ergonomics. Still have not understood the reason behind the exaggrated ride height, its not necessary, as Audi, Mercedes, and BMW do not increase the static height of the car to add AWD. Also, the loss of chrome wheels on a more expensive version of the Hemi C. Even with the proverbial egg on the gas pedal, the mileage is extremely low (14.8 combined); hoping for improvement as the engine continues to break in.

Mine is fully loaded w/ALL opts. Mileage a bit sucky (15) so far, hoping it will improve. No disappointments but think many small things overlooked. 1/2 pwr pass seat is tacky, NAV shld not require CD/Radio be playing to function (have to mute), my arm slips off windowsill as it's too narrow, even tho my seat is all the way down I still have to lean over to rest arm on armrest (I'm 6'). Headrest is annoyingly too far forward, can't adj. Auto seat-move-to-rear stops func if u touch mem recall.

Needs lockable console compt. Only getting 11-12 mpg in town, acceleration grabs when given gas, needs diferent tires upgraded, needs tinted side windows darker. It is a fun car to drive, outside of suvs and pickups, this is the first regular car I have bought since a new 1964 Pontiac gto with 3 duces, so I am really feeling young again.

I was looking to replace our 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis and was seriously considering a 2005 Mercury Montego(the Ford 500 twin)and on the way home from that test drive we dropped in our Chrysler dealer and took out a Black 2005 300 Touring. Needless to say for roughly the same price the 300 is miles ahead of the Mercury, and we bought the 300 right then and there. It is a very nice car. It performs very well, is roomy and I enjoy driving it. We took it on a 400+mile trip and it was a great ride all the way. I recommend it 100%

I am a liflong auto enthusiast, collector and Master Automobile Technician. I have owned over 200 cars from AMC to Pontiac, and have serviced or repaired probably 10000. The new 300C is the most exciting new automobile that I have ever experienced, by half. What first strikes you is the styling, which for me said 1973 Chrysler, which itself had styling ques from various 50's Chryslers. The stance is masculine and aggresive. The HEMI V-8 delivers enormous power and torque yet impressive fuel economy; about 24 mpg average for my driving habits. I just can't praise the new 300 enough without writing a dissertation about it's virtues! Just drive one, trust me!

I saw an add about this new 300 and it was a really nice looking car. When I saw it in person I knew that it was the car for me. I took it for a test drive and it was a great ride. I did a little research on the internet and found out there was a Signature Series available. I wanted to know what this was. When I saw it I said WOW what a Buy. GPS, Deluxe sound system, and moonroof, you can not with any other car beat the price. Go look at it and you will buy one. It looks better than my wife's Caddy. She is a caddy person and she was really impressed. Chrysler out did themselves on this car. They have a winner. The 3.5L 6 cyl is more than enough power.

I went from a 2002 Dodge quad cab to this awesome car and I love it. I never thought I could trade my truck in but when I saw the 300c in deep lava red I just had to have one. then I drove it home! The power and the look of this vehicle is unmatched. I get looks no matter where I am at. The interior is also bigger then one would expect. I fit 3 children comfortably in the back. The only thing I do not like about the car is the headrest on the passenger seat, it is to foward. I don't have to worry about it though because if I am in the vehicle I want to be the one driving it!

After doing lengthy research and test driving numerous makes/models, I simply couldn't find a better car for under $30,000 than the Chrysler 300 Touring. Although I've only had mine for about two weeks now, I've been extremely impressed so far. Besides its elegant yet sporty exterior design, this car drives great (comfort and performance-wise). Also, let's not forget to mention that I too receive continual compliments from high-end luxury car owners. Prior to deciding on the 300 Touring model, I actually test drove different 300 models with the three available engine sizes, and based upon price and performance, I opted for the 3.5 liter HO engine with the deep-sounding tuned exhaust note.

Purchased a 300 touring in May 04 best car i ever owned. Traded in Dec for a fully loaded 300C. I am amazed at the power of the hemi this feels even more stable than the other. Love all options, love the stereo. This car will make you want to drive all the time. I have always owned American cars mostly Fords this is the best car on the street Chrysler should be very proud. This car turns heads and meets the driving needs of the american public. Do yourself a favor if you are in the market for a new car you gotta check this car out.

While the 300C is a great vehicle, the only real complaint is the lack of gas mileage any where near that stated in the literature. Combined mileage for 6 Months averaged 16 MPG with travel being 60% highway and 40% city. Even the dealer knew what my complaint would be when I took the car in for routine service. Other than that, only minor electrical problems at delivery due to a shorted cable connector in the truck.

It is a beautiful looking car. I am disappointed with it however and it is the little things that are adding up - My ride is not as quiet as it is being advertised and dealer does not offer any suggestions other than that it will be different than my previous vehicle. I feel like I am in the cabin of an airplane. I am also having electronic problems - various lights on the dash come on and off- parking brake, traction system. (It does not happen when brought to dealer)

I am impressed with my mileage because much of my driving is 12 mi. short trips,but ave. over 23mpg. It continues to catch my eye as I see it in my drive way. This car knew my name and I drove by it on the lot for 4 weeks before buying it. Also I am happy with the V6, but then I am not a dynamic driver.

Steers very easily and responds immediately.On a 1200 mile trip,immediately after purchase, loaded with two bags of golf clubs,two garment bags and a large suit case plus sundry boxes etc. at maintained speed of 70 mph got 28 m/g on gas. Engine is quick to respond,extremely peppy. Trunk is very large and extended by pulling down backs of rear seat.A great car.Reason for buying.

After first seeing this 'Baby Bentley' on the road several months ago, I just knew that I would have to get one as well. After a few months of searching via several Chrysler dealerships, I eventually found the specific model and in the color that I wanted...the Touring model in Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl (one of the hardest to locate by the way). Although I had initially wanted a 300C, after the test drive, I decided on the Touring model. I tested the 2.7 liter (basic) 300 model, the 3.5 liter (high output quatrovalve) Touring model, and the 300C with the Hemi. Honestly, I really couldn't justify spending the extra ten grand for the 300C with upgraded amenities that I really didn't need.

I've never had so much fun driving a car. I've been driving for 40 years and have owned everything from street rods to luxury cars, but my 300C is by far the best all around car I've ever owned. You can't beat the combination of head turning styling, comfort, roominess and awesome performance. I feel like a teenager again, always looking for an excuse to take the car out.

This car has got to be the best thing since ice cream, from fit to finish...a fine world class automoble, one you'ed expect from Europes high end market only.I brought mine back in September of this year 2004. My brother owns a 2003 E-320 Mercedes, He picked my 300 up from the dealership for me and declared it had the same exact ride and feel of his E-320! and for $23,995... need I say anymore. There is one thing I would like to point out. In a special issue of Road & Track for the 300s they quoted on page six... "All Chrysler 300 models came with a list of standard features including traction Control" Traction is optional on the base car. I realized this all too late, I felt very misled.

I've owned a lot of performance cars (Corvette 427 - 390 hp, Pontiac GTO 455, 1967 Chev Impala - 427 -425 HP and 440 Dodge Charger)and this one ranks up there with the best of them! The best part of driving this vehicle is not on the interstates but rather the country two lane roads. Its handling and acceleration in passing is second to none. On top of all of this, it's interior and exterior styling has it sitting comfortably in the luxury class. If I have one complaint it has to be with the height of the front end - you have to be very careful when diagonal parking tht you don't get your bumper hung up on the curb.

This is the most noticed and complimented automobile I have ever owned. Luxurious on the inside as well as comfortable. Options to customize the comfort of the driver are remembered by the key. The new HEMI is fuel efficient by turning off 4 cylinders at crusing speed - you don't even notice. The long wheelbase and 20 inch tires provide not only comfort, but also effortless acceleration. You don't feel like you are accelerating very fast until you look down at the speedometer. The protection package is an engineering marvel. I can't tell you how pleased I am to own one.

The car replaced a Cadillac Eldorado ETC. Was going to buy the new Cadillac STS until I drove the 300C. What you get for the money makes the 300C an excellent choice. The 400 lbs of torque make the car fun to drive. The back seat has more than ample leg room. The cabin is both comfortable and quiet. People are constantly asking me about the car.

Love the Ride!!

The interior carpet should be a better grade it looks and feels cheap. The seats could have been wider and softer. they feel very hard. Other wise the interior looks very nice. The exterior looks very good and nicely put together. I have a 300C, it has very good power and transmisson. The tires are very cheap without a lot tread.

I bought the 300C as my run around and to work vehicle. It has become my primary vehicle for all trips. The ride is excellent and the gas mileage is okay. I actually enjoy it more than my Jaguar XJ8. I will not buy another Jaguar as long as the 300C is available. My wife is planning to trade her 1999 Jaguar XJ8 to get her a green 300C. By the way, my 300C is blue and people, even stopped at traffic lights, are telling me how great it looks. My surprise is that the ride is actually better than the looks.

This is the perfect car for men who are tired of driving mid-size V6 cars that scream middle age father of two. The power is awesome and the styling and comfort are top notch! The only thing that could be improved upon is the slight understeer, which is not that bad. The fuel economy is not as good as expected on the highway, but with that much power, there is no reason to complain. I have owned this car for four months now and almost daily I receive some kind of compliment on the car. This car rocks!

I just drove my new 300 Touring from FL to NC and back. It was a great test of a very comfortable road car. I was doing "above" the speed limit and got 23 mpg. Everywhere (I mean EVERYWHERE) I stopped, somebody would comment on what a beautiful car it is. Some wanted to know all about it in detail! I bought the Satin Jade, and it really is gorgeous. I traded in my 99 300 M for this car, and there's no comparison. That was a very nicely built, sporty little car. This is a big floating long distance car. Absolutley no fatigue after 725 miles and 11 straight hours on I-95!

The 300C is the only car which could tear my 95 Impala SS out of my hands. With the advent of newer technology and hemi power, I could not resist. This is my 1st chrysler. The ride is excellent. Handling is on par with a car its size, but Pirelli M+Ts or some other tire will improve it. The power is there - no question about it. The autostick will downshift if you rest your hand on it, so be aware of that. The dealer did a terrible job of prepping the car, so I spent 8 hours using prewax cleaner, clay barring the paint, and then waxing it. The factory paint is *not* on par with GM, however, the time I spent made a big difference. I would say buy one, but only a hemi.

This car replaced a 2002 Bonneville. While I liked the Bonneville, it was time for something new and the 300 is IT. Handsome, striking in appearance, roomier than the Bonneville, it is quiet, rides smoothly and handles securely. The 3.5-liter V6 has plenty of oomph for most situations. The car lacks certain amenities standard in the Bonnie: Automatic headlights, tire pressure sensor, 6 speakers’ standard. The 300 has leather standard, the Bonnie does not. The 300 is much roomier than the Bonnie is, and rides much better. The cruise control stalk is not a great design, GM hasn't gotten that right either. Chrysler saved money on the interior materials.

The 2.7 litre engine has more than enough power for snappy performance. There is a good mix of zip and fuel economy with this engine. I drive mostly at sea level with no hills, but there is no lack of power on high bridges. Road Handling is very,very good.Fit and finish are excellent. The tilt lever for the steering wheel needs an upgrade.This is one very fine car for the price. Style is form following function but the looks are first rate.A real driver's car.

Perfect marriage of Daimler and Chrysler. Cruise could be more user friendly - like on the steering wheel. And I wish the read-out could be seen while driving. Traded my STS without reservation.

I have only had my 300C for two weeks and I simply love it. It really gets the attention. I've had drivers in Jag's, Benz's and Caddie's take a good long look at my car as it cruises on by. Could it be envy? I think the best part of the car is the value you get for your dollar and the fact that Mercedes Benz has a large influence in the design and engineering is a real bonus to Chrysler. My particular 300C has every option available except the engine block heater and I still got it for under $40K even with the additional remote start and extended warranty. This car is the perfect mix of sportiness and luxury. And the return of the Hemi engine is the icing on the cake.

For several years I have been driving large British sedans because American car makers had the same boring offerings. It has taken Chrysler to reinvent the American Sedan and bring the public something other than cookie cutter badge engineering. I would highly recomend a test drive for any consumer looking for comfort, room and ergonomics!

I traded in my 1999 Caddy STS and can say the 300C is more powerful, more exciting and has just as many "bells and whistles" at $20,000 less. I'm 6'1" and don't have to slide the front seat all the way back for legroom. It has more legroom for rear seat passengers. My only concern is long term reliability, otherwise it is the best car I have ever purchased. Bottom line, this car excites me.

I have put 2500 miles on the vehicle since I bought it and have been impressed with the entire car. The ride is more like a european car and the Mercedes technology shows through. Plenty of power with great handeling. Very quite with a super sounding stereo. I put about 20,000 mile a year on a vehicle selling real estate and love driving this car. I have had lots of compliments on its looks especially from women. Mine is fully loaded and love all the options. While it does not get good gas mileage, I didn't buy it or expect it to with the hemi. It reminds me of the high performance cars of the 60's (I had a 66GTOthen) but better technology and dependability.

I literally test drove that car for 2 hours; I simply did not want to stop driving this vehicle. Chrysler stepped up to the plate and came up with something really special. The shift in transmission, smooth as butter, the extreme luxury feel and look is inpressive and eye catching.

The 300C Hemi is an outstanding vehicle. The longer I drive it the more I like it. The performance and handling is very close to my BMW 7 Series and I was pleasantly surprised in that area. To me, the driver's seat is sturdy, but not comfortable. The back of the seat is fine, but the seating area is to narrow and I'm not a big person. The back seat is roomy for three. After three months, I'm very satisfied with the purchase and would buy another. I can't wait until the limited model with more horses comes out. I just looked at the new Cadillac and I'll take the C Hemi and keep $20,000 in my pocket.

I drove a 300 base in California. Thoughout San Francisco it was fine, but out on the twisty roads of Highway 1, the 2.7 liter was hopeless. If I had a Dollar for every time the engine changed down to maintain an average speed, I would never have to work again. To put a 2.7 4 cam in a 3700lb car is aksing for trouble. It would not be so bad if it was a smooth engine. Gas milegae was poor as so much time were spent in the lower gears. Therefore, go for the 3.5, which should be the standard engine anyway. The stalks around the steering wheel are ergonomically poor. Plus points: Fantastic combination of road holding, suspension and ride. Brakes are brilliant too. The shape is beautiful too

best car ever frm chrysler

Best automobile that has come out since Cadillac came out with the 2004 ESV Escalade(which my wife drives). It tops all 2005 vehicles.

Finally a stylish car for a 40 something professional that even my kids think is cool. Now whenever we go anywhere the kids (13,6,6) always ask if we can take the "hemi" (as they affectionately refer to it). It's fun watching the reaction of people in the vehicles I pass. They give that long look eyeing the vehicle up and down, front to back. I've lost count of the number of business associates, friends and relatives that see me pull in and greet me outside to ask if they can take it for a drive. It's an amazing vehicle, well performing, great handling, and stylish. It's amazingly quiet and comfortable.

Sweet Ride

Took awhile to find the exact color and package but when I did find it I loved everything about it including the deal I got on it. Have had a small accident just recently and found out that having such a new car means not having parts available for it. But I can wait.

LOVELY RIDE

I just purchased the brilliant black 300 limited it's a beautiful car. I wish i would have had the opportunity to have had more factory installed accesories such as the rear sensors and the side airbags because what I have found out ,is the prices are much higher to have the dealer install them. They are in such limited supply in San Diego So I bought this one as it came.

OUTSTANDING

We love our 300C with the Hemi. We had a Deville, Cadillac, traded it in and weren't sure if we made the right decision. We have no regrets. The power is awsome, turning radius perfect, pretty interior and and exterior -- well what can I say; it sure "turns heads". It's great and I'm glad we paid the extra for the Hemi and all the other extras. I don't know how we traveled before without the navagational system, and the back up alarm has come in handy several times. I'm still learning new things about this vehicle.

One amazing machine!

This car is amazing. It rides like a benz, and looks even nicer, and its half the price. I totally love this car, and I am very happy with my decision, if youre going to buy this car.....GO WITH THE HEMI!!!!!!
