"We bought this from a friend who's daughter didn't take very good care of it. There was an intake leak that caused the rod to get bent in the engine. So when I bought it, I towed it home and tore the entire engine out and rebuilt it top to bottom as if it were new. I am so glad I did. New brakes and some new tires, and off we go for a 600 miles break-in. New everything, but when I handed it over to my wife, she took it on a ride to Nashville and back- No issues. Off to S. Dakota, sweet ride at 85+. Not a drop of oil. Yes, if I could afford it, I would buy a new 300 in a New York Second."

"I have owned my 300 for 13 years. It has been reliable and a very comfortable ride. It is still a stylish car at 15 years old. It's starting to cost more for repairs and my loyalty is being tested. The worst part about this car is that the interior is not holding up. The trim around the windows has been cracking and falling apart for a long time. It's still my baby."

2000 300m 280k mi picture taken 11/11/14 still drives & looks like new!!!

"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!"

"This car was definitely ahead of it's time. The interior is amazing. Full gauges...all still work. Everything is power, these still all work. The only issue is a long crack on the passenger side dash (above where the airbag would deploy). From what I've read, it's been a frequent problem in the 300M. The car still runs like new. Has power to spare. Not letting this one go!"
