If you love the driving performance provided by a rear-drive sedan, yet you also need room for five people, great fuel economy and a sophisticated set of electronic information and entertainment syste
There is a price to pay for the 300's opulent interior and upgraded navigation, audio and performance options. You can likely find a V6-powered, front-wheel-drive competitor from Ford, Toyota or H
It's hard to argue against the 2013 Chrysler 300, which offers a choice of a potent V6 or V8 engine, a responsive suspension and steering setup and the option of AWD. Our test of the 300C equipped with the 3.6-liter V6 and 8-speed transmission revealed a car capable of delivering Lexus-like quiet and comfort on the highway, while feeling more like an Infiniti sedan in the curves. We did find the 8-speed's shifter a bit imprecise, especially when trying to select reverse, but the transmission itself delivers seamless shifts and excellent

"The car was great for the first 15000 miles on the car. Then the brake booster went out and the brake calipers went out. How dangerous is that. My car has been to the shop once for a recall and three times for brake issues. The first time they couldn't find anything wrong and 5 days later I took it back and amazingly it was the brake booster. One day later I took it back for brake problems and then it was the calipers. I'm so mad at this car right now. I'm thinking of trading it. And I told a co-worker looking to buy one to stay clear. Get a more reliable CAR.."

"In one word: Loaded. I will begin by saying I've almost exclusively driven imports (Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Mercedes) for the past 15 years. We wanted a full-size family vehicle with luxury options but not ridiculously expensive. I test drove the 2013 Chrysler 300C along with other competitors in the entry-level luxury class many times before purchasing. I was waiting for the 300C Varvatos Luxury model (which is difficult to find) to be released and immediately loved the car. Cool exterior styling. Great power from the Pentastar V-6, outstanding luxury features like bluetooth, Garmin Navigation, heated/cooled cupholders, voice-command, remote start, heated REAR seats, and dozens of other options that you only expect to find in cars that cost thousands more. Test drive this car and you will NOT be disappointed. Save yourself $15-$20G's. Superb build quality and structural rigidity, as well as interior fit & finish. Soft leather, quiet cabin, comfortable suspension that absorbs potholes and road imperfections even with 20" alloy wheels. On a road trip to Florida it got me 32mpg/hwy! The only con I can think of is because the 8" Nav screen is flush-mounted as opposed to recessed into the dash-hood like other cars, sometimes the glare from the sun (only during early morning & late evening when the sun is low and on your right) makes it somewhat difficult to view the screen, but that's a minor issue and has only happened twice. Not only is the 300C one of the best-built American cars, its one of the best cars on the market from any manufacturer, bar none. Detroit is definitely back. Eminem and Clint Eastwood weren't lying to us during the Super Bowl. Hats off to Chrysler."
