Awesome car!

by
Aug 4, 2008 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Comfort, style, power, gas mileage.
Cons: None! Wish I would have bought one earlier!
The Bottom Line: Best car I've ever owned and worth every penny because it comes through on every level as a luxury ride.

I've owned my 300 Touring for about four months- it's a 2005 and I got it with only 15,000 miles on it. I now have 24,000 on it and each of those miles was experienced in incredible comfort and style. This car gets fantastic mileage too- 22 to 23 in ... read more

Makes a GREAT used buy.

by
Dec 3, 2007 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Most ominous car ever! 68,000 miles and still a "looker"; still performs like new.
Cons: Switchgear failures, gas mileage a few less mpg from stated averages.
The Bottom Line: Someone else took the depreciation hit, so live your wildest dream and buy one of these things - CHEAP!

After falling out of love with a 1985 Jaguar XJ6, it was time to go on the hunt for a new set of wheels. Wandering by one of my local dealerships, I noticed an '05 300C. Grabbing the keys, testing and poking and prodding around eventually led to the ... read more

About time!

Dec 1, 2006 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fast, beautiful styling, very good drivetrain, reliable
Cons: Transmission is disappointing, large blindspots, certain interior panels could be higher quality
The Bottom Line: Class far beyond what the price tag would have you believe. Muscle car feel in a luxury car body.

I drive this car regularly as a pool vehicle through work. In the last 9 months I have put approximately 5000 miles on. The first thing you notice when you get in is the small sight picture through the windshield. The low roofline really ... read more

Aug 22, 2006 - Updated Sep 2, 2006 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: FAST, POWERFUL, SPACIOUS, COMFORTABLE, ELEGANT
Cons: Brakes need tightening, Some cheap parts, fuel economy of Hemi-C.
The Bottom Line: For under $40,000 (with tax) this is probably the best luxury car you can possibly buy right now. Pray for the CHRYSLER IMPERIAL.

A Boss's Ride

by
Dec 23, 2005 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: The 340 HP 5.6L hemi and the smooth ride make the 300C a best pick.
Cons: The interior is especially disappointing on the 300 and 300 Limited models.
The Bottom Line: I would recommend the 300C model which has the hemi engine and the most options. The other models lack the power and interior that you'd expect from an executive vehicle.

The body design of this vehicle is a real head turner. Its design resembles that of a far more expensive vehicle and has thus been described by many as the "baby-Bentley". Although the appearance of this automobile is remarkable, many people have ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Look of brawn, quiet ride, roomy,
Cons: option packages, a few design flaws
The Bottom Line: Despite a few flaws I would still recommend the car for the price.

Let me start by saying I'm no auto journalist or mechanic, and I've never owned a japanese made vehicle. That said, I have owned my '05 Chrysler 300 for exactly 6 months and have just rolled over to 6,000 miles. I was driving a dodge durango ... read more

2005 Chrysler 300...the good, the bad, and the ugly

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Visual appeal, price, space, gas mileage
Cons: Some interior parts aren't the highest quality.
The Bottom Line: I highly recommend this vehicle. It looks great, rides great, and have plenty of space.

We recently purchased a 2005 Chrysler 300 Touring for my wife. She had been driving a 1995 Nissan Altima for the past 8 years or so and was ready for an upgrade. So, against my better judgment, we bought a Chrysler. My parents had owned a couple of ... read more

He Who Dares Win!

Apr 27, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Innovating and daring style. Fully equipped and priced to beat the competitors. Lots of power.
Cons: Sluggish transmission and concerns about the braking system. Not economical to run.
The Bottom Line: Aside for the lazy transmission and my worries for the braking system, I believe that once accepted by consumers Chrysler has a winner with the 300C.

CHRYSLER 300C 2005 He Who Dares Win! Firstly, I have to say that I was very impressed by the daring style and the performance of this car and this first impression was sufficient to realize that Chrysler had once again done something different ... read more

Pros: Its all about design with this car.
Cons: fuel economy
The Bottom Line: If the design of this car appeals to you, my review should assure you that the more practical aspects of this car are up to the mark. Solid purchase!

My review of this automobile is based on over a month of driving this car all over Germany. Let's get started shall we? I rented this car at Frankfurt Airport. Just so you know, the C badge is not reserved for the Hemi version here in Germany. Because ... read more

Chrysler: Z4 to 300m with no regrets!

by
Jan 18, 2005 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Comfort, great handling, visibility, looks and perfect size for any six foot frame.
Cons: Transmission has too great of range between high and low, needs a second gear.
The Bottom Line: If your looking for comfort, a quiet ride, great looks and the feeling of protection all around, look no further the 300 has it all.

Having recently traded my BMW Z4 for the new Chrysler 300m I'm having no regrets. The new comfort I enjoy by far surpasses the differences of the top speed I enjoyed in my Z. Then again the top speed I'm driving now equals the speed I drove the Z for ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Ample interior space, power, the look on people's faces when I drive by in it.
Cons: Occasional mistakes with navigation system, massage seats and cooled seats are not available!
The Bottom Line: A wonderful car, truly a car to impress your friends and everybody else on the road!

I bought my Chrysler 300C about a month ago. I had been in the market for an extra car to have for about 2 months when this caught my attention. I had looked at a Cadillac Deville and the new Buick Park Avenue, but both had the old grandfather boring ... read more

Oct 30, 2004 - Updated Nov 3, 2004 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: There are better cars to own!
Cons: Lack of appealing substance
The Bottom Line: I can't recommend this car to own, even if it were upgraded to the much celebrated Hemi with alloy wheels and leather.

NOTICE: The vehicle I'm reviewing was a rental that was equipped with basic standard bottom-line features. In other words, a V6 with hubcaps. I am reviewing it accordingly. So there I was on the island of Maui. The rental agency ... read more

2005 Chrysler 300 Touring

by
Sep 22, 2004 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Sleek, mean, too cool, handles great and it's fast
Cons: Maybe the visibility, but not really a problem
The Bottom Line: Go test drive one. They speak for themselves.

I've had my 300 Touring (black pearl, the only color I even considered, it's gorgeous) about 2 weeks. Chrysler really hit the mark with this car. It gets away from the aerodynamic "egg" look that most cars seem to have these days, and dares to be ... read more

RETURN OF THE JEDI

Jul 28, 2004 - Updated Jul 31, 2004 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Turning the sedan segment of the automotive market on its collective ear.
Cons: Having to wait 10-15 weeks for your car to be ordered.
The Bottom Line: Call it value, or just bling-bling - this car does it all. A true wonder - SHAZAM!

THE 300 "C". Like most Lucas productions, this one was much anticipated and action-packed. From its early inception to final implementation, Chrysler's new 300C marked a triumphant return to everything that makes American sedans great cars: ... read more

Pros: Ride and Handling: Better than any American car that I have ever owned or driven.
Cons: Comfort: Great, except that the leather seats are a bit hard.
My wife insisted on a new car. I agreed on driving her old (98) Lincoln Continental. I liked what I read about the Chrysler 300. She decided that this was "The Car For Her". OK, you know how this works. We bought the Limited (3.5L), with fairly loaded ... read more

I have owned over 30 cars in life this is the best looking car to come out of Detroit for the past 24 years. I own the base package with the 2.7 V-6. It has plenty of power, if I was looking for power I would have purchase a Corvette. Get behind the ... read more
