Pros: The 300 has its own style like no other vehicle on the road today !
Cons: The car does not come equipped with a compass. Thats the only thing that comes to mind.
Advice: Buy it and enjoy the 2005 trend car. It's all worth it.This luxury sedan is a smooth ride that turns heads while your on the road ! Their is not a thing NOT to like when you own the 2005 Chrysler 300.
Pros: The feeling that you're sitting in your living room on the coach while going down the highway at 80 mph
Cons: The agonizing feeling each time I see a rock kicked up from the car in front of me!
Advice: Get ready to repeatedly answer the questionI was finally at point in life were I could buy a car that suited me not my kids. I did some research on the web and narrowed the choices down to the Audi, Cadi CTS and the 300C Hemi. The research showed that the 300C Hemi was the best value for the money with out sacrificing performance or luxury. I decided to test drive it first. I was hooked and tried to keep my excitement from the dealer. I brought it that day no need to test drive the others. This car is magnificent! In 25 years of marriage and a number of new cars this car is the only one that I've actually made room in the garage for! And believe me that says a lot!
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.
Pros: Appearance and Engine
Cons: Passenger Dashboard and Winter driving (2wd)
Advice: Don't buy itI've owned my 300C for 3 months. I've got a little over 6200 miles on the engine. I decided at about 1500 miles I would take it on a 4000 mile tour of SW US. It was an excellent experience. Car handled extremely well through the mountain passes. No slow down's required. On the open roads, it was quiet, smooth and when the occassional person wouldn't move over to the right, it was no problem accelerating pass them. It's not a car I would suggest to get if you have a lot of winter driving. I would recommend the AWD if you live near snow.
Pros: The styling.
Cons: Unnecessary question.
Advice: Be mature enough to handle the envy.The Chrysler 300C is the most exhilarating automobile I have ever driven, including the Caddillac STS and the Corvette. Even while parked the vehicle makes a most powerful statement. This is not a vehicle for the under 40 crowd. One must have lived long enough and paid the requisite dues of life in order to fully appreciate the this marvel of automotive technology and genius.
Pros: The ride
Cons: Little short on trunk space for a lot of luggage.
Advice: Purchase the 300 C HemiHave taken the car on the road for a 1700 mile trip. It handled wonderfully. With the V8 Hemi, the power and performance are terrific, and for our recent trip provided an acceptable milage average of 23 m/gal. Comfortable, drivable, and solid - a great car.
Advice: Go for the C -HemiUsed to lease the 2004 300M special with Navigation/Uconnect graphite color beautiful car nice suspension, until I test drive the 300C Hemi built to suite pearl black, fully loaded W/Bentley Grill. Ever since I purchased this vehicle it's been hard for me to stay home, all I just want to do is Drive, unknown destination so long as I'm in the car driving. My wife owns the 4.0 S-Type Jarg., I tell you it's no match for the 300C.
