"This is my road-trip car for many reasons. I've religiously kept up with maintenances, and it's obviously paid off. From tank to tank I AVERAGE 28.5 miles per gallon, in this "FULL SIZE luxury sedan;" and when it's dropped (to say 24.5mpg), I have been able to figure out why. The car has as built-in (factory/original) diagnostics system, which is very helpful. My fuel mileage & maintenance record keeping has (also) allowed me to catch "repair people's" tricks too; like a dealership's "free alignment check." (there's a reason it's free.) I've bought & sold many-many cars over the years, but there are many reasons that I've kept this one since new. Do your research on how long certain parts and assemblies last, and when maintenance is due (like the timing belt). Also...when I'm not driving it, it's parked in my air conditioned garage; where I detail it regularly -including the engine, to prevent dry-rotting & cracking) This is how my Chrysler 300m is still running like-new past 280,000 miles (original motor, trans, drivetrain & et cetera). oh! tip: don't let the gas gauge get under an eighth of a tank; and if you see a fuel-tank truck at a gas station (adding pumping into the ground or a tank), go to another gas station: to avoid dirty fuel (or sedatives stirring around) in your fuel system. People are always saying (to me) "this is a really nice car." -and I've got nothing but compliments to say about it. The Chrysler 300m is a brilliant car, and I absolutely love it!"
