1999 Chrysler 300M from North America
A quality, affordable luxury performance sport sedan
Front wheel bearing replaced at 68000 miles.
Alignment needs to be checked at recommended intervals. Front was the most frequent problem.
Factory installed Goodyear tires wore uneven causing vibration and noisy ride.
Brake rotors subject to warpage.
Very comfortable car to drive on trips and around town.
Very well equipped (base) and comparable to the Cadillac. Mine also has the beautiful factory chrome wheels and a trouble free electric sunroof.
Very economical and handles well.
Everything in and on the car works well after 4 years and over 70K miles.
Interior and exterior look almost new with just regular maintenance.
I am glad I purchased this car as it has proven itself to be manufactured with quality, durable materials and a styling to be comparable or better than much higher priced vehicles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with everything in the review. I have 1999 300m with 140,000 mostly trouble-free miles. That said, the problem areas are (1) front-end -- rotor warpage, chronic vibration issues, and (2) air conditioning. The car is a bit too heavy and the ride a bit soft for drivers who expect European handling. So don't expect that. The nagging front-end stuff limits my enjoyment of what is otherwise a GREAT car.

I agree. It's a nice, comfortable car... but I also agree with the vibration noise. As of now, I just realized that under the floormat on the drivers side, its ALWAYS wet. I think there is a leak somewhere around the windshield and its pooling up under my feet as it passes down through the firewall. I might have to replace the carpet now... oh well..
