America's Muscle Sedan: Fan for Families, Too!

by from Dallas, Texas on March 6, 2011

Always wanted a muscle car, but the adolescent boy in me & reality of obligations would be hard with a family & responsibilities as a new dad. The ALL NEW Chrysler 300C with standard HEMI V8 is everything to me, and more importantly, the family. They knocked the ball out of the park with this home run. With gas prices going up, we had to part with the gas guzzling SUV we were very fond of. Thought I would miss our Ford Expedition, but the 300C is quite roomy and our 28 MPG - 30 MPG of mixed driving made the decision the right one. Considered the Ford Taurus Limited & SHO, but the V8 powered Chrysler w/ traditional RWD were among the reasons for switching brands. However, the Chrysler has proven to be such much more. For roughly $38,000 & change, the car is full of features worthy of a Mercedes-Benz, BMW & even Lincoln, with costing just an ounce of what the luxury brands charge. Aside from the ancient Town Car, Lincoln offers no RWD cars for '11. The soft-touch interior materials of the 300C equal or surpass those of an E-Class, 5-Series & Jaguar XJ, while affording us the usual: making house payments, paying for groceries & taking care of all other essentials, including a second car for two working parents in a tough economy. The safety features on the 300C, i.e., exterior mirrors w/ supplemental signals, rain sensing wipers, hill assent/descent, Bi-Xeon HID headlamps w/ leveling system, SmartBeam head lights, front/rear fog lights, back-up camera, HomeLink Universal garage door openers & home/yard lighting, SmartKey, ABS, blind spot monitoring, ESC, LED illumination, front/rear park assist, various hands-free controls, state-of-the-art BlueTooth phone system/computer/weather advice/entertainment/driving data/navigation (w/ large 8.4" touch screen). The unique heating/cooling cupholders work great! The aroma of the high quality leather seats, switches, gears & steering wheel is awesome. There is even real olive wood accents throughout the luxury-sports car's cabin. We have the "ride" & we have the "handling" of both in perfect proportions, I have to admit. The rear seats are heated, just like the front benches. Sweet! The trunk has loads of room for all of our many things when traveling w/ the children or taking an adult vacation. MOPAR accessories & a host of spiffy new colors inside & out allow you to personalize your 300C. I was tempted to add one a several tasteful grille options, but could not be happier w/ our no-extra-charge Billet Silver Metallic 300C w/ standard perforated Light Frost-Beige Nappa leather seating and trim. A nice color combination my wife selected.

the mighty hemi v8 lives in in rwd form in a far classier package. my new 2011 300C is roomy, more spacious, better riding and handling, far more elegant and superior in every way over past large chrysler 300's and all new cars from gm, ford and other makes worldwide. i traded in a 2009 300C and for '11, the improvements make it an entirely grander car than ever before. it is smooth, free from road noice and any interior rattles... the 2011 is stunning from every angle and has the most uptown interior in memory. it is one used to expect from large cadillacs, lincolns, chryslers and imperials of the pre-1980's era, only better inside and out and with great gas mileage, reaching near 30's MPG. i love the real leather and wood and other first rate materials, paint and interior and exterior finishes. the list of standard features is refreshing. only a handful of options, like all-wheel drive, bentley grille and panorama sunroof. everything works perfectly with the new 300C. i am very pleased. it is the safest vehicle i can afford and what a lot of car for the money. the best deal here in america and canada. i travel between the u.s. and canada daily and it never fails - the kudos from both counties and at each border.

It seemed like a lifetime waiting for the arrival of the brand new 300 we ordered, but it was well worth the wait. Quality and reliability were the two most crucial factors in selecting the Chrysler 300. We test drove several but decided to order one in a limited edition color and panoramic roof. There is not a single thing we would change about the new 300. There are few large cars of its caliber and price to choose from, yet it rides, handles and exudes the luxury of a far costlier sedan going for double its price with every amenity not even fond in those more expensive cars... like heated steering wheel and both front and rear heated seats. We are also pleased with the impressive gas mileage of high 20s. This is the best car we have ever driven!

HEMI-V8 Power+All-Wheel-Drive+30 MPG!

The HEMI powered V8 of the Chrysler 300C & AWD traction, safety, stability & every imaginable luxury feature in sports car style sold us on the idea of getting a new 2011 automobile. A brief test drive & taste of ultra luxury dynamics, sporty handling & outstanding bank vault quality, fit, finish & materials led to a down payment & we have been enjoying every mile with front-rear heated seats, heated-cooled cup holders, a heated leather & wood trim steering wheel, heated mirrors, class leading navigation & stereo system & even hill assent-decent security for near off-roading or inclement weather. The dual pane tilt-slide panoramic sun-moon roof combination with one-touch controls & sunshades is worth the slight extra cost of this fun in the sun & under the stars option for 2011. I am impressed. No complaints at all.

The finest car for all tastes for anyone needing a lot of room, power, comfort, fine ride and handling and refinement. We get over 30 mpg's with the all powerful V8 and rear-wheel-drive. The most compliant car ever owned. It looks snazzy, too! Best in quality, refinement and value.

Love My Chrysler

We traded in our 2006 300 Limited in 2008 for a 2008 Tahoe and now have traded in our Tahoe for our 2011 Chrysler 300C. We absolutely loved everything about our 2006 300 but the 2011 300C is even better yet. The Safety Tec package makes us feel safe in our luxury ride. The Tungsten exterior and black interior with 20" wheels turns heads everywhere we go. Having had 4 Cadillacs previously we test drove a 2011 Cadillac CTS but the 300C was roomier, better riding and in our opinion had a better look and we saved $5,000 compaing similiaily equipped cars. Our 300C looks great in the driveway, on the highway and on the beaches of south Texas. Can't wait for our next road trip back to Minnesota next spring. We made 3 round trips from Minnesota to Texas in 2007 in our 2006 300 as we looked for our retirement home and the rides were wonderful, we can only imagine how comfortable our next round trip from Texas to Minnesota will be in our new 300C.

Best Kept Secret in Automobile World.

by from Florida on September 27, 2011

The vehicle feels and performs like a Bentley. Couldn't be happier. The new body style is slightly different than the last 300C model, but the changes are very elegant and well styled.

Test drove the 300c AWD locally and thought it was exactly what I wanted. As my local dealer would not meet my price I went to the neighboring state and found my car. titanium exterior black leather interior. The car is exactly as advertised, plenty of power lots of comfort and all the gadgets I wanted. Talk about passing power.

Terrific Ride, Elegant Feel, and Power to Spare

Bought my 2011 Chrysler 300C used with 9,000 miles but in showroom condition. Exterior is blue pearl and black leather interior, and Goodyears on 20" factory wheels. Engine is the 5.7 liter hemi. The car has every option except AWD. To date, the car has had no problems. The Chrysler replaces my fully loaded, V-6, black 2006 Cadillac STS. The technology in the Chrysler is far superior to a 2011 Cadillac STS. The Garmin navigation is simple to use and the 8" screen is easy to read. The radio, CD, climate, navigation, and controls are integrated in the touch screen. You can even control the brightness of the display. The interior materials are better than Cadillac. The leather is softer, and I like the different textures of interior surfaces. Nothing feels like plastic. There is plenty of interior room for five people. The interior ambient lighting is functional and stylish, and the dashboard displays are easy to read. The computer controls are built into the steering wheel. I still cannot get over the amount of informaiton that is presented: tire pressure (all four tires shown at once), engine/oil/transmission temperatures, and even the number of hours on the engine (measured like a boat motor). The side mirrors give lane occupany signals and alarms when its unsafe to change lanes. The engine is a powerhouse. Dense city driving is averaging 13 miles a gallon, slightly better than a Bradley Armored Vehicle. On the interstate it's up to 24 mpg, not the 26 advertised. The hemi is not cheap to operate, but engine performance has been great so far. This is a big car, and it's not as agile as the Cadillac in parking garages. The 20" wheels look cool, and ride nice on the highway, but make interior parking difficult. The rear sunshade is useful especially at night when you have bright lights behind you. The rear foglights (red lenses) are nice, and I use them to signal to other drivers, like the 18 wheelers do. I suggest you check out the Chrysler 300c if you want a large car, top performance, and an arty look.

I debated between a Chrysler 300 and a Jeep GC. I ended up going with the 300C AWD and I’m glad I did. This is by far the nicest car I’ve ever owned. In fact, it’s the nicest car I’ve ever driven in. The Hemi has plenty of power yet it’s smooth and quiet. The exterior styling is awesome and the interior is very luxurious and roomy. This car is a real pleasure to drive.
