2007 Chrysler 300 3.5

Summary:

Luxury car, but too many problems

Faults:

About a month after I got this car, I noticed that it was leaking. Turned out to be a gasket that was worn out on the transmission.

Also a back light would not turn on while driving, and the horn was not working anymore.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a 2007 300 with the 3.5 litre engine, just turned 67000 kilometers.

Lately the car has been using oil at the rate of 1 litre per 1000 kilometers (about a quart every 620 miles). According to my dealer Chrysler says this is normal. I say no way and am wondering if I made a mistake buying a Chrysler product.

Anyone else heard of this?

Wouldn't surprise me. Back when we had a '86 LeBaron GTS, we were told that .025" cracks in the block were "within specs". Darn shame, that car, beautiful wine red with black leather, was a hoot to drive, but we put in $10,000 in repairs into a car that cost $9000 and had only had 34,000 miles... We sold it at 61,000 miles and almost everything on the car had been replaced at least once, literally!

Summary:

Love this car

Faults:

The only thing that we have had to get fixed on it was the E-brake had to be adjusted.

General Comments:

Bought this car in Feb 2010. We wanted a big safe car since we have a baby on the way. We went with the touring 3.5 with the leather and sunroof. This car is very comfortable and we feel safe in it.

Excellent for road trips. The V6 is OK on gas, but it depends how you drive it.

I would buy another 300 again.
