Bought used and completely original
By pitmanoeuvre on
2002 Chrysler 300M Special 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.
Service is not seasonally required and the ground effects have done a super job keeping the running/rocker panels free of rust , even behind them.
2 windshield washer sprayers that provide a 6-stream cleanup of the windshield is a good feature.
The auto return power driver's seat makes it so that when you take the key out , your seat moves back , so you can exit the vehicle easier.
The driver's seat also moves back when you use your keyless entry to enter the vehicle , making it easier to enter the vehicle.
Steering is great with a full set of chrome 17" wheels , and a full set of 17" BF Goodrich TA's.
