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!"

Pros: "Drives nice, average MPG for the size,"

Cons: "Poor quality over all, many repairs to get to 180K"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"Had the starter go out after first 60K, the brakes have been a problem since day one, squealed at 10K and then did break job after break job, finally did one myself and spent 350 on parts alone and problem went away. i have had to replace the break master cylinder at 100K and now it needs replaced again.Total transmission rebuild at 110K!!! same thing happened to my friends concord? So I enjoyed the car but the resale is horrible as it says it is only worth $1400?? I would say chrysler has come a long way but the quality is still kind of lacking."

"Well, these models are overpriced, and are practically useless when you want to get rid of it. Most repairs are costly and complicated (radiator has to be removed under the car)."

"I've owned several vehicles, but this 2001 Chrysler 300M is the absolute BEST car ever! This is the vehicle that spoiled me. This car CAME LOADED with extras that most vehicle manufacturers today would charge for - like I said, I got spoiled. I'm a used car buyer only. I bought the 2001 300M in 2006. Have had no major problems with it - just normal maintenance and wear/tear. In 2013, the engine in the 300M went bad, so I bought a 2007 Chrysler 300. The newer 300 does not feel like an upgrade, at all. In fact, I have more luxury in my 300M. The luxury that came standard in the 300M is piece-mealed out (with a price tag attached to each feature) in the new 300s. Basically, I'd have to fork over a much prettier penny if I wanted the same luxury I was accustomed to. But, as a used car buyer, even if I were willing to pay for all the "extras", I wouldn't be able to afford it. Let's just say that, I am getting another engine installed in my 2001 300M....."
