Bought the first 300 in Nov. '06. At 429 miles I realized there were serious problems which the dealer said were not problems but normal driving. At 650 miles they finally replaced with a new car. At 449 miles it started doing the same thing the other had done. Took it in & the dealer said it was the Torque Converter and replaced that. Now it has a shimmy and bumps along the road. HATE THE CAR!
2007 Chrysler 300 Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This is the best company car I've ever had. I selected it because I had read that components like the transmission and suspension were sourced from the Mercedes 300. Whether this is true or not I can honestly say that the suspension is firm yet compliant like a Mercedes (I owned 260E in the late 80's) and the transmission has been flawless. The autostick is more fun then an regular automatic and the 250 HP six gets up and goes. Plenty of room inside - I'm 6'3 250lb - interior is stark but functional. Stereo is above average for out-of-the-box US car. Wish it had 18 or 19 inch wheels but I can live without them. I am pleasantly surprised with this car. Audi A8=10; this is a solid 8!
Great looking car, fun to drive when it's not in the shop. Motor blew up with about eight thousand miles. It took an entire month to have the motor replaced. When we got the car back the new motor was missing an oil plug and had to go back to the shop again. The window motors have broken, a brake seal failed and leaked brake fluid all over the garage. Glad we werent driving when that happened.
Try standing behind your product. I understand that everyone builds a lemon from time to time, but when that happens try to correct the problem don't pretend like it dosen't exist.
