My Heritage Addition 300C
Pros: The engine performance it there when you need it !
Cons: the ride is a little rough as compared to the lincoln I used to drive.I bought it with 15 miles on it (brand new) and I have not been disappointed. The quality of this model has held up. I've only had one small issue the 4 years I've owned it.. ( a fluid leak around the transmission temp sensor) which was repaired promptly. This car (Hemi) has spoiled me and I will have to but another one at some point but so far the one is performing well.
Pros: Too amny to list... Picking one would have to say the seats.
Cons: None. Love the entire car!
Advice: A lot of vehicles out there in this class. This is the best for the price.This vehicle is great. Excellent performance for the price and size/class of the vehicle. Nice smooth ride very comfortable. Very happy with the purchase and would do it again.
Pros: bad boy body style........HEMI !!!!
Advice: not your everyday ho hum sedanMy husband & I have always wanted one of these bad boys and it just happened one weekend that we had the opportunity to test drive one. My advise to anyone who is considering buying one is if you don't want to spend the money.....DON'T TEST DRIVE IT!!! We bought it the next day! We fell in love with this car. It rides like a dream, more power under the hood than we ever imagined! We always loved the design of the car, but after we drove one, it was a done deal! Rather pricey, but worth every penny. Absolutely an awesome automobile!
Pros: Stereo CD player audio system - It is like a concert in your car if you enjoy music.
Cons: Plastic Door Panel Trim (under car doors-entire length of vehicle. It fell off my 300C, and also, fell off on two other 300C owners. No warrenty service granted, yet is under a warranty protection plan.
Advice: A $40,000 car, you don't deserve plastic trim falling off vehicle. Any trim parts of plastic form should be securely glued during attachment. Trim is not glued. It is moveable, you can pull it off, near the real wheel attachment.Am a recent owner, with roughly 9,000 on mileage. Purchased used at 3,000 on the mileage. V8 engine, and drives with excellent handling and impressive speed. On gas mileage, air-conditioner not running, the car performed 63 miles (city and highway drive combined). With air-conditioner running, on a highway drive of 2 hours, the car used 1/2 gallon of fuel, one way trip. With gas prices, be somewhat conservative on utilizing a/c to preserve gas mileage.
Pros: It's all about the HEMI, man!!
Cons: Interior material quality could be better
Advice: Buy it now!!Fantastic power, with good handling. Very comfortable interior. Outrageously great sound system!! Can't beat it at the price!!
Cons: VISABILITY FROM COCKPIT IS LIMITED.
Advice: BUY ONE. GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCKBOUGHT ONE WITH THE V6. MAY OPT FOR THE 8 IN THE FUTURE, DEPENDING ON FUEL PRICES. SUN ROOF RATTLES ON ROUGH ROADS BUT OVERALL QUAlity is great.
Pros: Performance & ride.
Cons: Absurdly small ashtray.
Advice: If you need a big car with a big engine ... the 300C is for you.I have a 2003 STS & wanted something a little bigger. The STS is a dream car, but a bit confining on a long trip if you're a big guy. As soon as you get into the 300C you can tell it's plenty big, and, plenty powerful. The power output from the Hemi makes you think you're driving in a video game ... it's quiet, smooth & effortless. The gearing is so tall that at 80 mph the engine is only turning at a mere 2350 rpm's. There's no noise, no vibration & very little sense that you're really moving unless you look at the speedometer. This is not a car for those who do not have plenty of self control, and a good radar detector. My only complaint so far is that the ashtray is only big enough to hold one large marshmellow.
