2005 Chrysler 300 Touring 3.5L from North America


Okay for now until the battery problem gets fixed


Alternator and battery tested fine, but when I wash the car and leave the radio on for about 1/2 hour with running the engine; battery needs to be jump off. It starts up normally everyday and operates fine, only when I wash the car listening to the radio or cleaning inside. Anyone had this problem before?

General Comments:

Everything is fine, but you can't get too close to parking long cement; it will tear up where the fog lights are, and pull the grommets from the fender as well.

2005 Chrysler 300 C Hemi Hemi from North America


Great look and hemi.. bad electricals


Electric problems.

Auto wipers have mind of their own.

General Comments:

I was looking for a larger more comfortable car as my family was taking more trips to my wife's moms.

Love the looks and comfort of this car, but was starting to have intermittently electrical problems, power windows not working, rain sensing wipers coming on on sunny days and not coming on when raining, seat memory not working.

Nothing too terrible until we talked with family with a 300 and they were also having electric problems (headlights and dash lights not working.. 2 weeks at dealer.. new motherboard.. and now same problems again). We decided time to trade. Love the looks and the Hemi, but did not seem reliable.

2005 Chrysler 300 touring 3.5 V6 from North America


Not very good


I have ongoing problems with misfiring cylinders on the 2005 3.5 L V6. It has been to the dealership 6 times so far without resolution. Very frustrating.

General Comments:

If there is an answer to the misfiring engine problem it needs to be shared with the dealerships.

Go to a different dealership- if it's been in 6x these guys are clueless and obviously not very good.

If you went 6 times to a dealership for one problem, either there's something wrong with you or the dealership.

Go to a couple different dealerships, and a couple regular mechanics, get their ideas and you will have your problem solved.

After doing your homework, you will know if the car has a problem or the dealership does not know what they doing.

Good luck to ya bud!

This car is in a class by itself


My sunroof leaked and pulls to the right. I just got car out of shop and hoping to see rain soon to test my sunroof. Also, I want to warn the readers that after you've received your car from the shop, check your car for scratches and dents. My car was a victim of this after I got home. Needless to say, I returned the next day to address the issue and they will paint my car.

General Comments:

I like the body style.

2005 Chrysler 300 300C 5.7V8 from North America


We love it a lot!


Not one problem.

General Comments:

My wife and I traded both our 1999 Town Car Signature Roadster and a 2003 Town Car Cartier for a gorgeous black 300C. Believe us when we say this, but this was the best move we both made. We love how comfortable it is, how it rides, handles, and how powerful it is. We honestly and strongly recommend one of these babies to anyone looking for a cheaper alternative to big and pricier Mercedes Benz sedans or any other luxury car. Believe us, we'll keep it forever.

You traded in a 99 and a 03 for this car??

I think you got ripped.

Dealers around here were asking $8,000 over sticker when these things came out. Now they are all discounting, although not as heavily as GM/Ford models.

But trading in two relatively new cars for a new one seems like a PT Barnum fantasy for the dealer.

I have owned a 300 Touring since Feb. 2005. It has never been recalled or been back to the dealer or mechanic for any repairs. It is a beautiful vanilla ice colour and handles great. It has lots of power and the silent comfortable ride is great.

I have never owned a more worthy car, great work Chrysler.

Bad quality wrapped in a nice exterior


Low oil pressure at 14,000 miles.

Electrical problems at 20,000 miles.

Blown transmission/torque converter at 28,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car looks great and turns a lot of heads.

When running is a joy to drive.

Very comfortable and stylish interior.

Overall mechanical quality is poor with very poor service from two separate dealers.

Can you please explain what kind of electrical problems your car suffered.

It's just a typical American car, except this one has a good design.

Can't believe dealers actually wanted $8K over list for just the basic car when it first came out.

Oh well, owners will soon realized that beauty is only skin deep as this owner did.
