2007 Chrysler 300 3.5
Luxury car, but too many problems
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!
