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


This vehicle did a lot of highway driving and was great up to 75000 mls, afterwhich started having problems with head gasket, water pump and thermostat which were all related to the heating system, very costly and after speaking with several Chrysler professionals it is to be expected with this 2.7 engine the problems and more not described here. I've met technicians that would not touch this engine. For one thing the water pump is behind the timing chain which becomes faulty because of the head gasket issue, resulting in high labor costs. Really liked the vehicle but dont have time to spend at the dealership spending money in these hard times.

Best Features

Vehicle style.

Worst Features

Since there is a head gasket issue that sometimes affect the water pump maybe the waterpump should be more accessable.
