Pros: Body Style
Cons: power window control placement
Advice: do itHandle'n is great,aircondition is too,love it
Pros: It's style
Cons: the poor gas milage
Advice: Buy at least the touring model with antilock brakesThis is the best new car experience I have enjoyed. Of 11 new cars I've owned since 1955 this is the first that had no reason to return to the dealer. I have owned it since 7-30-01 and driven 11,000 miles. Do I like it?? I am awaiting delivery of a 2003 GT PT.
Pros: The leather seats with the suede accents. Makes it VERY comfortable
Cons: Chrysler doesn't have a Bose stereo... but Infinity's not too bad.
Advice: If you can afford the limited, buy it. Get the 3.8 Liter engine.This van has it all! Total comfort and extremely nice seats. If you have the cash, get the LIMITED. The suede accents on the leather seats make the ride 'dreamy'. The 3.8L engine gives it the power you need to get up to speed quickly on the enterance ramp on the freeway. The climate control is nice for long trips. I like cold to keep me awake while i'm driving... my wife likes the heat. And the passengers in the back have control too! The only negative i can give is the stereo system... which isn't bad... but my Maxima has a BOSE stereo system and the Infinity isn't in it's league. BUT... all the features on this make it awesome. You can fit a full 4' X 8' sheet of Plywood or DryWall if you take out the rear seats. Another bad design is the Cup holder for driver. It's right next to stereo... so you can't put a supersize drink in it... but that's really nit-picking.
Cons: Blind Spots
Advice: Take one out for a test drivehad the lexus GS430, got the 300M. 300's not quite as fast but, my got does it ever hold onto the road! Wifes got the Mercedes sl600, but I have no qualms!
Pros: The large front doors
Cons: location of the spare tire
Advice: noneI find this car to be vary sound, the car handles vary well. It is easy to see out of both front and to the rear. the car will fit our needs completly.
Pros: stereo system and moonroof
Cons: trunk space and road noise
Advice: lookI was looking at a SUV when I saw this 300M on the showroom floor. I test drove it for 4hr., came back next day and bought it. This is a dream car,fast,agile on curves and very comfortable even for 6'4 people in the back seat. I only wish the trunk was bigger, and road noise was less. Otherwise I am one very satisfied customer.
Pros: removable seats
Cons: would have preferred six cylinders
Advice: shop aroundI not only test drove the PT, I fell in love with it and bought one. Practical, roomy and fun to drive. I was surprised on the road with other PT owners waving at me with a 'thumbs up'. For the money feeling special with the looks and quality made it a choice I don't think I'll regret. Exceptional handling on mountain roads, which are part of my commute.
