2006 Chrysler 300 Limited 3.5 V6

Summary:

Fantastic vehicle

Faults:

Nothing at all, no problems whatsoever.

General Comments:

This car is a fantastic used buy. Everyone believes it to be brand new, and it still looks it after 3 years on the road.

The 3.5 V6 is strong, reliable and emits a nice growl when floored. It's no racer, and that's because it's not meant to be. It's a 2 tonne plus cruiser, and it does it extremely well.

You can feel the Benz within the car. It sits on an old E Class platform, and has Mercedes gearbox from the Daimler Chrysler partnership.

It feels so solid on the road, has too many features to list, and has good gas mileage. Living in Australia, mine has come from the Chrysler factory in Austria, which has further helped build quality.

I have had this car on the highway, and it floats along effortlessly. Would recommend to anyone. Thumbs up.

2007 Chrysler 300 Hemi 300C 5.7 V8

Summary:

Best value for money, no other can compare

Faults:

22,000 kms O ring seal wore out (common problem), but a quick stop at the dealer service fixed that within 15 minutes at no charge.

No other mechanical failures.

I recommend disabling the tilt down mirror when reversing, as I bumped into a cyclist and scratched my paint, as I couldn't see him due to the tilt.

General Comments:

I have owned this car for almost two years, and I have no complaints. Things only got bad for me when I discovered what ESP OFF meant. I burnt thru my tyres and my average 13.6 l/100 kms jumped to 16.5 because I loved the roar of the HEMI.

Its expensive having a lead foot in a 300c, but hey you only live once.

I've lost count of how many ricers the 300C has consumed for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Mirrors are no substitute for actually turning and looking for kids and cars... that's got to be the first thing I teach teens: safety first - look in the direction you're driving and check your mirrors.
