Love Hate Relationship!
By limopaul on
2006 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)
Loved this car from the day I drove it home.
One owner black beauty only mod was a K&N drop in filter and I added a Borla exhaust system.
Hella fast and fun to drive. Well maintained and garage kept, used as a Livery sedan and purchased with about 93k miles. Replaced front strut assemblies and wheel bearings (pricey).
Car is nose heavy by design. All went well
without any issues until cruising in the fast lane at about 70mph Engine lost power without warning, barely made it off of freeway and car had died at the offramp. Stranded with clients in car 85 miles from home! Broken valve spring, bent valve and pushrod, Had heads redone and with tow bill about a $2500 breakdown. Sold it
Great styling and performance. High maintenance and repair costs.
