2006 Chrysler 300 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I read Consumer Reports but I hate the fact that all the "foreign" cars rate high and the Dodge and Chrysler always rate low.I love my Chrysler 300.I have owned it for 5 years and it has never failed me. At 60,000 miles I am just now replacing the tires.I have the large engine and it climbs the mountains at 80 and gets 26 to 27 mpg. For a full size car the mileage is great. This is the 5th car or truck I have bought from Oxendales and they are also great to deal with. We are a 2 car family so we have owned Chevy, Fords and Toyotas but nothing as nice as this.I have dual air, satellite radio and cooling in the back seat so my grandkids don't complain about being hot in the summer heat of AZ


Best Features

I love the heated leather seats.I thought leather would be hot or cold but these aren't.Living in AZ that means a lot.I live at a higher elevation than Phx so it also snows in the winter and the car easily drives through it.The heated seats make it so comfortable when it is cold out.


Worst Features

I do not like the position of the speed control it needs to be on the wheel. It would also be nice if there was a valet key and a key hole for the trunk. Otherwise I love it. I can live with its faults because of its positives plus the fact it has never needed repairs.

2006 Chrysler 300 C 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

My car has 40k on it. Unfortunately, my front end feels loose and rattles and squeaks. my research shows that about $1000.00 fixes it and it will come back again in about 20k miles. Due to a poor design and heavy front end

audio


Worst Features

better steering

2006 Chrysler 300 SRT-8 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The car has been awesome! I bought w/12k Miles and the Car stock was very fast w/425 Hsp. With few bolt on modes the car is close to 500. A whole group of dedicated followers are on-line waiting to share info. Parts are very reasonable. Gas Mileage is where you would expect, drive like your in the Indy 500 and you'll get 13 MPG, baby it and it's 18. Every time you start your SRT8 a Prius cries. Very tight ride, good handling for a 4200 lbs car with plenty of peddle. You can turbo your ride and have more power than a Lambo but why it has more tha enough. Exhaust makes the car sound like a Beast! SRT8 is a total sleeper and is the most bang for your buck you can possible get!


Best Features

Great looks, plenty of power! Brakes are great w/Brembo's. 20's look great!


Worst Features

There are lots of people that this is their hobby! Lot's of things you can add. But you definitely need a cold air intake, grill, exhaust, diablo tuner, bigger tires, Windows tinted!

2006 Chrysler 300 C 4dr Sedan AWD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this car in April 2010 because it was time to retire my 2000 Bonneville SSEi and I wanted something powerful that also had AWD. I also wanted something with low miles and didn't want to pay much over $20K. With all that in mind, the 300C AWD was pretty much the only option. I originally wanted a 2007, but found a nice 2006 with only 21K miles in my price range. The car is AMAZING. The ride quality is great, the look is great, the handling is great and the power from the 5.7 L Hemi is jaw-dropping. I had had to make one minor repair -- the sway bar bushings needed to be replaced because they were worn and causing a clunking sound over rough pavement, but otherwise it's a total dream!


Best Features

The look, the handling, the wealth of luxury features. Most of all, though, the sheer raw POWER!


Worst Features

A lot of people have had problems with the sway bar bushings. It may not be a safety issue, but is sure is annoying when the car starts clunking like that. Other than that, I wish there were some way to keep the same styling but somehow drop the window level a bit so I could put my arm on the ledge.

Review

Purchased with 56k miles. First car purchased in 22 years. Previously had SUVs and a pickup. This car is fantastic! Commute 60 miles per day and have had zero problems. The AWD is great! Had more snow than usual this winter and it handled great. The HEMI has more than enough power for this heavy car. Mileage is not bad on the highway. (20-22 mpg) Tons of room inside and in the truck.


Best Features

HEMI, AWD, Large cabin


Worst Features

Tire pressure monitor system sometimes gives false readings even when new sensors are installed.
