2003 Chrysler 300M Special 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased new in '03. Car has a bit over 100k on it now and has never had a single problem. Up to spec with most new cars in terms of power, handling, looks, overall enjoyability. Interior should be an upgrade from standard Chrysler fare for the 300m but is okay with the carbon fiber trim though. Car has plenty of power, interior room, great handling, and is stone cold reliable. The 18" wheels definitely make the car noisier, though. Also, the "special" is lower in the front so watch out for those high curbs! If you hit one it can bring the bumper out of alignment. Drawbacks of having a performance car. Absolutely love this car, they should have kept this one and made the newer 300 separate
Power, exhaust note, reliability, handling, lots of interior room, overall upscale feel. Solid like my Mercedes. Lots of compliments, still, for an almost 8 year-old car!
The base 17" wheels/tires are much more quiet and comfortable but don't look as good, no bluetooth, no stability control, front bumper too low. Interior would need to improve slightly to match the excellence of the rest of the car.
