2005 Chrysler 300 Sedan C Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have 121,000 miles on my 300C and still love the car. In general, it has been reasonably reliable and is certainly fun to drive. I would buy one again.


Best Features

MDS engine which combines great power with reasonable fuel economy. Love the satellite radio and cell phone bluetooth. Very clean instrument layout - easy to read and use. Still have original brake pads - love the brakse


Worst Features

Wish it had a light that let me know when it was in MDS mode so I could consciously improve fuel economy. Auto rain-sensing wipers are great idea but work inconsistently; touch screen navigation would be an improvement

2005 Chrysler 300 Sedan C Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Exterior aesthetic appeal is undeniable, however interior budget cuts are evident. Leather is cheap, and not supportive - sadly MOPAR engineers have yet to achieve a benchmark ride akin to Cadillac/Lincoln. However as prior owners of both, neither can compare to the pure acceleration and road manners of 5.7/340hp 300C. Approaching 100k (5W20), w/ no mechanical problems to mention. Still avg range 320City/+400hwy varied elevation/region/driving conditions including snow. Very powerful, compliant, and forgiving platform. Thoroughly do the research and test drives, the Hemi is kicking with class leading fuel economy. On a more juvenile level, it just feels good.


Best Features

HEMI Exterior styling V8 Fuel Ecomomy (MDS) Avg 420mi cruise range Low operating cost - Maintain Minor scratches don't hurt as bad.


Worst Features

-MOPAR bloodlines, need more Damlier influence toward seats. -Veh idles rough, almost lobes; dealer identified design flaw.

Review

love car, but have had some unusual problems, like the rocker panel dropping off. Has anyone else had thia problem? Had to replace brake rotors and pads at a cost of 743.00 at 22000 miles . Brakes still squeaking, even when I'm not braking. Just had to have suspension work done that cost me 1100.00 and replacement of rocker panel me 389.00. all of this on a car with 49000.00 and also a new set of tires. the originals were so worn.


Best Features

style and size.


Worst Features

put better tires on car and extend warranty to at least 50000.00 miles.
