Right Front window does not always go down on that switch.

Had the potential to be a real feat of engineering


- A/C stopped blowing cool air, A/C compressor clutch loads the engine down when switching.

- Driver side rear door window motor non operational.

- Buzzing from the dashboard front speaker.

- Audible tapping noise when the engine is started from cold, does not reoccur after subsequent warm starts.

General Comments:

The car handles extremely well, with lots of power on tap for high speed maneuvering. I did have problems with traction control going up a snow covered hill in March with street tires, however, the antilock brakes worked as expected. Tire noise is high, probably due to the General Exclaim tires that replaced the OE ones, but this probably also accounts for the superb handling.

Lots of room in the trunk, and with the seats folded down in the rear, one could easily place a 60"x30" object in the rear of the car with no problem.

Sunroof is very nice, and works well.

Interior is well laid out, electric heated leather seats are still in excellent shape after 7 years, and the rear climate control vents are a luxurious touch.

This car was originally designed for the European market, but was also popular here as well (and I did see a number of them in the Baltic states and in Russia).

1999 Chrysler 300M High Performance option from North America


I've enjoyed this car so much I would buy another one if I got a deal on it


Transmission module replaced under warranty (normally about a $150 repair). This occurred at about 18,000 miles. An electric window motor also quit functioning properly and was replaced under warranty at about this time too.

Air-conditioning condenser in the dash-board had to be replaced. Approx. $1,000. Everything else in the air-conditioning system has been fine. This occured at about 69,000 miles.

The transmission had to be rebuilt, it quit functioning properly. I'd always maintained it frequently and used the proper Mopar fluid, hoping to get it to last beyond 100,000 miles, but I guess that just wasn't to be. This occured at about 76,000 miles and cost me approx. $1,875.

General Comments:

I love this car and so does my wife. It hasn't been as trouble-free as some of my past cars, specifically Toyota's, but I like it anyway.

The 3.5L engine is a real performance machine, and can still get about 28MPG if I take it easy on the interstate. I think this engine can get to about 200,000 miles without major repairs (I hope, I hope).

Looks - I still today think the 300M is the best looking car on the road. Even after owning it all these years.

And of course the 300M handles wonderfully. Since mine has the performance suspension, it is a bit rougher riding than the standard suspension, but we don't find it objectionable.

Regarding styling, I have a 2001 300M with about 75K miles that has been flawless, not one single issue! I really think that this car is beautiful, one of the best styled cars in recent years. There is some real artistry in that sheet metal. Just look at the beautiful shape of the front fender wheel opening. Also, the transition from the rear quarter panels up onto the flat trunk deck is stunning. Even the taillights and vertical surface of the truck lid are sweet. The car, in my opinion, is easily as beautiful as other luxury cars costing much more. One weird thing, though. How come such a beautiful, powerful and nice handling car is always piloted by old, grey haired ladies? Nothing against old grey haired ladies, but I wonder if they are aware of how great a car the 300 is?
