I own a 2002 300M Special and have NO problems what so ever. It just takes proper maintaining. Brakes being replaced so much is from bad driver/driving... I have well over 100,000 miles and have only done regular maintenance!
I have done 30k with a 2000 model year 300m which I have replaced shock absorber, 4 rotors, a rear taillight etc. Overall it's a excellent car specially it's engine, powerful and good in mileage.
