Review of the 2005 Chrysler 300

  • Proving that upscale sedans don't have to be stale-looking and slow, the 2005 Chrysler 300 series offers distinctive styling and V8 power in a practical and affordable package.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Chiseled and masculine good looks, powerful V8 in 300C model, long list of safety features, plenty of luxury and performance for the price paid.

  • Cons

    Sluggish acceleration with base V6, limited transmission choices, complex stereo controls.

  • What's New for 2005

    The 2005 Chrysler 300 is an all-new, rear-wheel-drive flagship sedan; it replaces the Concorde and 300M. In a clear move away from the cab-forward design theme Chrysler championed in the 1990s, the 300 represents the company's bold new direction and makes use of plenty of Mercedes-Benz technology. Available features include Chrysler's Hemi V8, stability control, side curtain airbags and, later in the year, all-wheel drive.

Greatest vehicle ever driven

Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 Rwd 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)

I have driven over 500,000 miles in the past 40 years either professionally or for travel and pleasure. That involves many types and makes of vehicles both domestic and foreign and includes luxury cars in both categories. With this experience as a basis I can say that this vehicle is one of the finest examples of automotive engineering I have ever driven! And based on the cost factor versus the finished product it could very well be the finest vehicle ever manufactured. Needless to say we are extremely pleased with this motor car. We have experienced the same responses from those that see it as some of the other reviews. People love it!

Srt8 300c

Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 Rwd 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)

I love this car. Its by far the fastest car I ever had. It has every option. Everything works fine. The main problem I had is with the front spoiler it was so low that I went over the parking block at the gas station OK but when I backed up it pulled the whole front end off. It cost me $1500.00 to fix it, I then did it again at the bank so I took it off and it fine now.




Love it but!!!

Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 Rwd 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)

This car is awesome but it tends to pull to the right. I have had it in the shop and have been told there is nothing more to do. I took it somewhere else and they fixed it but it is starting to pull again. The style is beautiful. People look all the time. It really moves and handles well except for the pulling. I was told it is due to the hemi. Makes no sense to me. Beautiful classy car.

Big ride for $

Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 Rwd 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)

A really big bang for the money. Great style, presence, and performance. Very nice 23MPG during easy highway cruising. Great radio, GPS, and sports like handling and large interior space.Appeals to board range from youth to CEO.




300 c fully loaded

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 Rwd 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)

I traded my 430 E mercedes Benz 2000 for a fully loaded 300 C hemi. I saved approx $25,000 by purchasing an american made mercedes. The car is flawless will I purchase again Yes. The power,design and the roominess for a 6 FT 4" person is unbelievable for the price.The only problem is that dealers want you to pay sticker price with no negotations.

My last post in this forum was in July of 2004 and I commented on the "crown sensitive" issue for the 2005 Chrysler 300 series which in effect 'translated' to the vehicle chronically pulling...


2005 300C has a problem keeping up to the outside temp. It sticks and is eratic. Any suggestions how to troubleshoot this problem?...
