Great performance and economy out of a 2.7 V6

This car has the comfort for a long trip with lots of leg room and a smooth ride. The rear seats fold down to allow a longer item for transport.

Don't know if most of you realize, Mercedes under

Absolutely love it, 2nd 2006 limited I have owned, one in 07,one in 16, same color, cool vanilla, about 25% were this popular color, most of the car is straight from the Mercedes parts bin, rear suspension, seats, but not leather quality, wiring harness, steering column and wheel, and controls, stability control system (makes car corner without leaning, not slide or slip in snow, front suspension from S class, computer control, if you have AWD, same system on Mercedes trunk 4Matic, which I used to believe was talking about a 4 speed automatic before I knew better. About the only Chrysler drive train part is the 3.5L, don't get a 2.7 base model, horrible engine, literally look the intrepid 4 speed and converted it to rear drive, really underpowered and under transmissioned, high failure rate in both. The 3.5 is bulletproof, my wife's 04 intrepid has the same engine, winter 16-17 coolant froze at-5? car started to overheat as we got to her work, completely empty because radiator didn't thaw, before I made it home, drove normally when at extremely high temperature, no knocking or stalling, except for temp gauge you wouldn't know there was a problem, when it cooled I put in New coolant, no damage, radiator or block, even synthetic oil was fine, never seen another engine do that the 2,7 won't, knock and stall just when it gets hot but not overheating, and if it does it can grenade, terrible, 3.6 absolutely amazing, loves the 5 speed and, autostick 2006 250HP and 2011 with 294 HP and same 5 speed transmission, only.1 second difference 0 to 60 speed, now over 80 the extra Hp tells, but at normal acceleration only 10 ft lbs difference so no advantage in most driving, and 11-18 just aren't as pretty, they are like nrw coke, ok but how do you replace a classic, interior of newer one nicer, features not available up to 10, but outside just blech they tried to make a box on box modern throwback, too modern and more round, doesn't look right, and 12 and up 8 speed, no autostick, just don't trust the shift wheel or that many gears, 5 speed Mercedes much better.

Hemi Powered

Big comfortable car with plenty of power when you need it and a smooth quiet ride when you don't. Highway MPG is around 25; good for such a large power-plant. The 5.7L Hemi V8 making 340bhp and 390lb-ft will rocket you to 60mph in 6.3 seconds.

Car performs well doing anything you ask of it

This v6 4 speedauto combo does it all well, feels like a v8. This car handles great and sits solid on the road. Very stable doing anything. Very comfortable front and back seats with plenty of legroom . I am over 6ft and 235 lbs. and this car fits me so well. It drives more like a big mercedes than like a Lincoln or big oldsmobile etc. more like a luxurious sports sedan that loves to hug the road. The more I drive it the more I realize what a quality car it is. From the mountains to the sea this car does it all very well , a very versatile automobile is an understatement. The engine is very responsive and torqeu is felt immediately. It does not keep searching for a gear to meet the demand it just pulls forward strong from whatever speed you are traveling, it just goes without hesitation.the car feels stout not floaty and mushy, the wind does not blow you around in the road, it just stays steady where you have it pointed.

I have 215,00 miles and I still drive to Vegas,

My 300 is very reliable from the day I purchased it with 19,000 and now with 215,00 miles and able to drive it on vacation just with minor repairs. Feels very solid on the road. Interior is stylish and comfortable. I scored it excellent because it is to me.
