The front end is too low. I have torn off 2 plastic under belly pans, the entire front bumper cover on curbs and parking stops. the front end easily slides right over a parking stop upon entering a parking place. Pulls the entire belly pan or front bumper cover off when backing out. I have even replaced the 20" stock hells with 18" wheels so I could put a larger bias rated tire to lift the front end with no cure. I love the car, I hate to park it. NEVER VALET.
Drive at 75 to 85 mph and consistently get 19 to 21 mpg. Excellent handling and performance. Very capable on snow and ice with auto-4wheel drive. Love the car but am unhappy that I can not get another with v8 and awd. The newer multi-gear trans. in this car would have been very nice. I may have to look at other brands now when I replace this one.
2010 Chrysler 300 Touring 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my 2010 300 Touring eight months ago (Feb. 2016). At that time it had 70K miles. I've added another 10K, and so far the car has performed beautifully. Other than oil changes the only expense has been to buy a spare key ($315) and new tires ($700). I've taken a couple of short distance (150 miles or so) trips and the car rides like a dream. City mpg runs about 17.5-18.0; highway about 24 mpg. I feel very secure driving the car. I would recommend the Chrysler 300.
I've now owned the car for over a year and can still highly recommend the 300. It's very reliable and comfortable to drive. Only normal service work, i.e. oil changes, has been needed.
The car now has 92,000 miles on it. Still providing perfectly reliable service. The only repair work I’ve had to do was to replace the drivers door handle. I still highly recommend a Chrysler 300.
I couldn't be happier with the overall experience of this car. Just over 38k miles now, it's still brand new in every way. Power on tap is un-limited! Extremely quiet, ride is "sporty" for such a big car. Never feels heavy, really nimble actually. You do get jostled a bit, but when hitting curves, there's a sense they aren't even there. Talk out there in blogs has this model pinned for being collector car worthy in the future. Chrysler got it right on this one. The re-style is nice, but not comparable to this last beauty produced. Romp on it under an overpass with sunroof open and hear the twin pipes roar like a muscle car. It's a luxo freeway cruiser in supreme-sublime style and function.
Driving 12 hours straight after purchase from dealership brand new.....never before arrived feeling so un-tired. Comfort, interior layout - unlimited legroom front/rear, leather quality, comfort features, sound system (!) huge trunk, clean looking engine bay, headlights (hid projector) are phenominal. Endless power curve, braking is linear, throttle is responsive, deep sounding performance note until full throttle unleashes a strong dual exhaust blast. Mileage is crazy good when taking advantage of the mds mode. Exterior styling can't be compared to, night or day. Auto hi-beam and rain sensing wipers are spectacular.
Chrysler could have used larger fabric panels to avoid the rubbing sounds of leather and vinyl against plastic trim pieces on the front seat bases. Movements make it sound like rubber air mattresses rubbing against each other. There is no tint area or dotted decal at the top of the windshield. Sun light comes through the gap between the visors and mirror base making it really difficult to block out. These aren't complaints.
