Buy Again

I own the 300. I like it so much if I could aford a new car it would be a New 300. The only dislike is not all options are available on all models. Also the cruse controll should be in the steering wheel for ease of use.


good looking car

I bought a 2006 limited 3.5 V6 with 32k Miles on it. The look sold me the car. First thing i changed the tires to Michelin Hydro Edge, much better permance, more quiet, better gas mileage. Don't buy the car if you have back problems. The seats are hard and uncomfortable, the Navigation complicated to use. On the highway smooth ride, disappointing gas mileage in town around 15 maybe 17 with being careful with the pedal. At 40k Miles the AC broke, first the evaporator, a day later the compressor, Chrysler wants $ 2.000, found a place who "only" burned me a $ 1.250 whole in my wallet. They told me a very common problem at around 40k miles, so check out the the AC before buy used or purchase a extended warranty. Chrysler was not willing to help out with the repair cost even the car was 1 month and 4.000 miles out of warranty. Only small things to fix, the cheap interior plastic rattles here and there a little bit. I think the maintenance cost for this car a to high, not to mention the repair cost. Overall a real head turner with some chrome and a nice grill.


300 Touring: Great Luxury, Value, and Style

Almost nothing to criticize...I loved this car. I did find the seats a bit hard and wished I got better than 20-21 mpg. Other than that, style, quality and engineering made me a big fan.


Sporty Change from Buick LeSabre

I just traded my 2004 Buick LeSabre for a 2006 Chrysler 300 Touring about 3 weeks ago. So far so good. I did give up a lot of options that I had with my Buick due to the fact that I had the top of the line Celebration Edition. I was a little worried at first but the Chrysler styling and firm feel on the road has put my mind at ease. I have been a strong GM person for years and reluctantly bought a 2005 Chrysler minivan about 3 years ago for my wife when we had our first son. I think the quality has come a long way with Chrysler and have felt comfortable enough with my wife's minivan that I was ready to go all the way Chrysler this time. The quality is there and this is a hard car to beat for the money. I travel between 100 to 250 miles a day with my job and needed something comfortable, professional and dependable. This car fits the bill and I have received several compliments already. I did however, lose a couple of miles per gallon in the economy department. My Buick always averaged 25 MPG. This car is around 22 MPG. The sporty feel and handling make up for the lack of efficiency though. I recommend this vehicle.


head turner for sure

i love this car,it has a unique look to it, its classy but also has a sporty look to it, which is hard to find on a car this size, plenty of room in the cab and in the trunk! have done many modifications to it, and im saving up to do alot more! this is a car a young or old, man or woman can enjoy... i will definately try to keep with maintenance on this car, so it can love me right back!


Buy it, you will love it.

The car looks amazing both inside and out. It has plenty of great features. It has a high quality feel. It is reliable, and even with a just a v6 engine it is more than powerful enough (if you need more power, go with the HEMI v8). Better than any of its Japanese/Korean competition BY FAR. Better value for your money than the German makes as well. I enjoy driving this car everyday...there's a sense of pride you get from owning such a fine machine that you don't quite get from owning a Toyota, or a Hyundai, for example. Do not hesitate.


Still love this car!

I have owned my 300 for over three years now, and I am still in love with it. I love the handling and smooth ride most of all. I purchased my 300 Limited with a moonroof and Bose sound system and am glad I purchased these upgrades. This car has been trouble free for me and I enjoy driving it everyday. I hope to drive it for a long time.


2006 greatest

My 2006 Touring 300 is the best car for the money. I will put this up against any high end import on the road. Comfort, style, ride, reliability, you name it! With 78,000 miles on the engine it still runs like new. This will definitely be a car for collectors. We really need to have a C300 Car Club so everyone can enjoy and share the joy and thrill of ownership.


Needs some "tweeking".

Gave this car to my wife for a valentine gift in 06. She loves it, BUT...There was no pull to close the trunk so I attached a pull strap underside of trunk. She's short. The inner lining of the trunk came "unglued" so they stapled it along w/extra glue.(very attractive). In the summer of 06 everytime she cranked it the A/C blew in a horrible soured smell. They took it in and supposedly took care of the problem. Had a great winter now summertime, the oder is back with a vengence. Was told that these cars are having a problem with a "MOLD" so they have to order a special "foam" to take care of it. "Of course, it does not cause any health problems to smell this mold", WHAT??? It is a great car for the cooler months.



I have had this 2006 Touring Limited for two years now with 24K miles and two round trips from Florida to NY and have not had one problem. Surely one of the best cars I have owned. I would buy another in a heart beat, only this time I would get one with a moon roof.
