I would recommend this car , and I would also buy another one.
Off the top , the car has been a welcome change - where "I" don't have to adjust to the car - "it" adjusts to me.
I like that the most.
Engine performance is very good , and fair on fuel , with it's 3.5L / 255hp (dual exhaust) application.
In my opinion , there is nothing more "boring" than a car (it's engine performance) , where you are repeatedly confined by it's lack of power.
I don't like driving vehicles that practically drive themselves.
If I want that , I'll ride in the passenger seat.
The overall design is very good , while it's overall functions , are not limited to "driving".
These are valueable.

When I was looking for a car in 2007, a chrysler 300M was not even on my shopping list. I was looking at a couple of Pontiac Grand Prix's when my eyes caught this beauty. This car stood out in a room filled with more than 50 cars at a local dealer in Toronto. After road testing it with a couple of friends in the back seat, who by the way found the back seat to be ultra comfortable with support for the back of your knee, I instantly fell in love with this car. The performance from the engine was surprising awesome for a 3.5 lt V6 in a full sized sedan and so was the handling. Every time I take this thing out for a spin, I am very confident while taking turns that it wont under or oversteer.

It is a welcome change to buy a used car that doesn't start doing odd things or need more immediate attention mechanically.
I bought my 2002 300m Special with 237,000km's on it , while the brakes , battery and exhaust were all original.
I only needed to replace the brake pads.
This speaks volumes to me in terms of value and reliability , not really seen on other used cars.
While the transmission shifts ultra smooth and works as new , just like the previous owner claimed (as he said that the tranny never had any problems , just a fluid and filter change).
The battery is a shock , being an Interstate Mega TronII , just like other ones at scrap yard that also had original batteries in.
A special 300M debuts this year, called the Special. Designed to appeal to performance enthusiasts, the Special comes with 18-inch wheels wearing 245/45ZR18 Michelin Pilot Sport tires, a firmer suspension, increased-effort steering and an upgraded brake system. All 2002 Chrysler 300M models get a revised grille.
My son cracked up my 2002 300M Special and the drivers side rear wheel is bent partly under the car. I've found a 2002 300M Base model for a parts car and I want to make sure that all the suspension ...
Any suggestions on what to look for with the Chrysler 300M (2002) being stuck all the way in the up position? The seat moves back and forth, but will not go up or down. When you press the button up or...
