2006 300c

My 300c is a 2006 with 86,xxx miles on it. I love this car, roomy, reliable, and handsome. My paint is great, no peeling or fading. The 5.7 hemi has performed flawlessly, but being 16 years old, I'm going to add a few performance parts, intake and exhaust mainly. I have two complaints, #1, the drivers seat is uncomfortable and #2, I need more sound deadener at the firewall. I've read that these engines tend to drop a valve seat. I'm hoping that I'm beyond that, but if it did and destroyed the engine, I'd probably replace the motor, as I like the car that much. Point of info, I'm 69 years old and 6'1, so I do like a large car for comfort... Thanks...


Most reliable car I've owned

Plenty of space and power. Only issue is chryslers problem with there paint it tends to peel over the years. But I think it's a great car and safe


Cars never been smoked in I mostly driven it mysel

Bought this car new in 2006 I have all receipts Oil changes for warranty of the car that things have been done to it still have a warranty $50 to take it over


Al Capone would be proud!

These cars are very nice with a classy sinister look with good performance and luxury. They are also affordable. The Chrysler 300 may not be a Rolls-Royce or a Bentley, however for the money they will not be beat. Many packages are offered with these cars ranging from the base V6 to the hopped up Hemi.


Love my car

This car is vey nice and handles wonderful. I would highly recommend this type of vehicle to anyone looking for a spacious vehicle with plenty of get up and go


Almost died because of known issue they wont fix

Vehicle stalls out on highway and it's a known issue Chrysler wont fix. Are they just waiting for someone's family to be killed before they do something?


It's Been Reliable, But...

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300 AWD. I bought it used 13 years ago. Currently, it has 136K miles on it. So far, I've only had maintenance repairs -- tie rod replacements, tires, battery, brakes, and most recently a starter. It's a roomy car with comfortable leather seats. The drivers seat has cracked and torn. The trunk is huge with a pass-through in the back seat. The battery is in the trunk which makes it easy to replace. It's a huge battery so it's pricey to replace. Being AWD, you can't replace just one tire. All of them need to be replaced at the same time. The built-in garage door-sync is nice but I've noticed I have to be practically to the garage door and hold it down for it to work. I used to be able to open the garage door from the street. Power windows/mirrors and moonroof. Heated front seats are awesome. It's rides comfortably and smooth. It does not have the get up and go if you need to get in or out of traffic quickly -- there's too much lag time before the engine kicks in. Every now and then, I notice the engine lose slight power when sitting at a stop light -- like it's going to die. Lifters are knocking, too. Overall, it's not been too bad of a car but I've not been very happy over the performance issues.


Safe, reliable, fun car

This 300 is great for someone that wants more room on the interior this car offers that. Its a V6 so good on gas. Easy to drive. I dont really have any negative things to say. What you see is exactly what u get. Comfort. Stylish, low maintenence


Very reliable and stylish

This car has been wonderful. Its very stylish and gets you where you need to go. I would recommend this car it has been great to me over the years.


broke down 7 days after we bought it

loved it at first, broke down 7 days in, dealership did put in another engine so far so good, buyers beware if you can take car to mechanic do it the dealership had my car longer than We did in the end they honored the 500 miles or 15 day policy which was good
