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


Review

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!


Favorite Features

Obviously the power of the Hemi engine is a huge factor. I don't drive fast but love the instant throttle response necessary at times in todays age of errant and careless drivers. The firm but smooth ride is perfectly balanced. Long motor trips are just plain fun and never tiring.


Suggested Improvements

Might lower the wind heights a little as arm out the window is a little to elevated, especially when trying to get mail out of a road side box. Might add a increasing sound level beep to the back up sensor. When it activates with sound its almost to late to stop when backing.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The power and breaking.


Suggested Improvements

Make front in better.

Review

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.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Performance, style, and solid construction feel.


Suggested Improvements

Seats need to be upgraded for added comfort and ride slightly tuned from performance to comfort. Creak in windshield and slight rattle in sunroof disappointing. Auto wipers and hands free needs design attention for better operation. Cruise control needs to be moved to steering wheel.
