Last of the 2013 300C's

Vehicle2013 Chrysler 300 C 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
ReviewWe purchased the 300C in late September, and were fortunate to get the exact color and interior combination we originally wanted a year ago. Our main priority was a quiet highway ride, and the Chrysler delivers that in spades. Two days after we purchased the car, we left on a two week, 4,000 mile trip through NM, CO, WY, MT and SD. The car performed flawlessly, was extremely comfortable at all times, and delivered highway MPG that was incredible. During two days of primarily interstate driving, the MPG exceeded 32 miles per gallon.
Update: After 50,000 miles, this car continues to amaze us. Great fuel mileage, quiet as a Monday morning church, 8 speed ZF transmission is a delight and plenty of luxury touches. Big screen navigation system is easy to use, and climate control features are great. Love the heated steering wheel in the winter, and venyptilated seats in the summer. The leather interior is holding up well, no worn bolsters or front seat cushions. The Saftey Tech features were well worth the investment, although Chrysler has split it into two packages on the newer 300's. The depreciation curve has been pretty steep, but is not abnormal. The only feature that was somewhat negative was the life of the original equipment Firestone tires. They were extremely quiet tires, but the soft tread compound was only good for about 22,000 miles. Failed to plan ahead on the first replacement, and the only tires available same day were the Firestones. Second set wore down at 45,000 miles, and were replaced with Michelin MXM tires that carry a 55,000 mile tread life warranty. We will see if they make it.
