2005 Chrysler 300 Limited 3.5L from North America
Not worth the money I paid for it
Front driver's seat started tearing with less than 22000 miles. Contacted the dealer, who contacted Chrysler; no one wants to fix. I found out at an automobile upholstery repair center, that the seats advertised and sold as leather, are composite material on the sides and back, and that's why they fail. I will have it repaired because I love the car, but no more Chrysler's after this one's poor quality of materials. I always believed in buy American, and that's what you get, poor quality, probably made in China.
Very poor design of windshield height.
Great gas mileage on highways.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

"Very poor design of windshield height" and tires failed under 20,000 miles
Did you SIT in one before you purchased your 300?

How can someone say it's not worth the money paid, then go and give it full marks for comfort, reliability and performance?

Re: windshield height I was not the driver when purchased, my spouse was I am over 6'2", and when you stop for a red light at the line, you cannot see light unless you bend over and the seat is all the way down.

Sounds like poor placement of the traffic signals rather than a design flaw to me.

Tight and firm driving car. It has a quiet and a smooth ride.
I have 2005 Chrysler 300 and purchased it January 2005. Today it looks as good as it did when I purchased it.
The local Chrysler dealer in Belmont and Gastonia treats me with great respect and has always serviced my vehicle. They notify me when service is required. This dealership did not forget me once they made the sale.
I have purchased 10 new cars in my lifetime. This is the best vehicle, sold by the best dealership.
My next vehicle will be a Chrysler or Dodge purchased from the same dealership.
