  • 300M. One problem after another - 2004 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    Bought the car with 50k miles on it. Kept it for 7 years. The first 4 years of ownership were spectacular. Basic maintenance issues easily resolved, tires, brakes, sensors. It always consumed a quart of oil every oil change and ate gas and tires even with an alignment. I upgraded the rotors to drilled and pads to ceramic Worked amazing. After 90k miles the fun began. One problem after another. Replaced entire front suspension, and drive axles, it ate all 6 cd’s in the changer, would not eject, the tranny cooler lines leaked, I did the timing belt job 3 times in a 20k mike period, it needed a new cam sensor every year, these cars are great when they are new and low mileage., not a good keep forever car.

  • A Beautiful reliable car - 2001 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I bought my car new in 2001 had it until 2012 put a hundred eighty thousand miles on it replace the engine twice because I loved it so much... I was in three car accidents and I never got hurt! Trusted it so much I gave it to my child.

  • Safe for Families, Cool for Teens and Adults - 2002 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I recently bought this car with 152,000 miles on it. It has been sitting since 2013 and started and sounded beautiful. I am comfortable driving my little brothers and 3yo cousin. There is also enough room both in front and back for me and all my adult friends when we go out! The trunk is huge and perfect for any Equestrian and Builders or if you just have alot of stuff! I love the built in inner trunk release for when my brothers lock each other in it. I came from a 98 VW Passat Turbo TDI into this. My dad keeps trying to steal it when he goes out of town because of its comfort and seats that lay flat back. I would buy this car again and again! [and not just for the sporty looks!]

  • I Wont Do That Again - 2001 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I bought my 2001 300m last summer. By December the transmission went out. When I bought the car it had picture perfect carfax. It was beautiful. I fell in love at first sight. However, the honeymoon did not last long. I had to replace the front struts and a tie rod end. $890. A couple months later the ac condenser went out. Even with repairs I felt the car rode rough compared to my Avalon. Finally the transmission went out. Really? I take care of my vehicles and even if I didnt I did not have enough time to neglect it. This car died at 175--- miles. I was the third owner and it came with maintenance records. Never again!

  • Love Hate Relationship (stay away from the special) - 2003 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I bought this car in 2012 with 115,000 miles on it and Route 66 extended warranty. At first it was really fun to drive it handled great, sounded great really comfortable. In 2013 it had a Rod berring issue and the engine had to be replaced. It was replaced with a new engine with 80k mi. it lasted a year December 2014 with rod berring issues again. Replaced it again with 80k mi costing $1,100 (only cause its bank owned). The Chrysler 300m special has a bad engine which is the EGK engine only made for the Special with 255hp. Chrysler never recalled it. So if you buy this car at 115k and its the Special get ready for a Headache.

  • Just bought a 2002 300M with only 52,000 miles on it. - 2002 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    Did a lot of research on this car and this was the model year I zeroed in on. I always loved the look of this version of the 300. I got a really great deal on it and with only 52k on it I couldnt have found a more comfortable sports car. Ive read around the web to stay away from using the Autostick function and Ill follow their advice. Car runs and rides like its brand new.

  • 14 years and still going strong - 2000 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I bought my 2000 300M brand new (ordered from the factory) and have had nothing but a great experience with it. The car was not as fast as my twin-turbo Stealth but very few cars could match that performance. But it has room. I am tall and even with the drivers seat in my driving position, I can sit comfortably in the back seat without my legs touching the drivers seat. The ride is very comfortable without being out-of-touch. The reliability has been nothing short of amazing. Other than normal wear parts (tires, break pads, bushings, wiper blades, air filters, etc) the car has not needed any significant work. Nearly 200,000 miles!

  • 2002 300M Special (Berline) - 2002 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I would recommend this car , and I would also buy another one. Off the top , the car has been a welcome change - where "I" dont have to adjust to the car - "it" adjusts to me. I like that the most. Engine performance is very good , and fair on fuel , with its 3.5L / 255hp (dual exhaust) application. In my opinion , there is nothing more "boring" than a car (its engine performance) , where you are repeatedly confined by its lack of power. I dont like driving vehicles that practically drive themselves. "Boring". If I want that , Ill ride in the passenger seat. The overall design is very good , while its overall functions , are not limited to "driving". These are valueable.

  • Amazing car - 2001 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I finally had to get rid of this car at 162,000 miles due to general mechanical failure. However, I feel like this cars "death" was well-deserved and reasonably timed and I couldnt be happier with how it served me over the last 12 years. I never had any major issues at all with the car until 120,000 miles. Drove super well, no complaints. These days I feel Chrysler has gone to much cheaper quality with some of their sedans (ie Sebring). This 300m is one of the great ones. Quality was wonderful inside and out. In its later years I did experience some condensation in the headlights which god knows annoys the crap out of me, but not a big deal. Most comfortable seats youll ever sit in.

  • Electrical Ghost Cost me serious money... - 1999 Chrysler 300M
    By -

    I loved this car, my kids loved this car, I enjoyed driving it...I hated giving it up! I was nickled and dimed with the windows and some other small electrical issues and the shifter had to be fixed as well and the air conditioner as well. But the killer was I lost my shirt when it just didnt start up or started up real ugly one day...never drove it again after spending THOUSANDS on "Well, it must be this" and "well, well try this" got so bad the dealership actually did most of the work at the end for free and brought in a professional who was baffled as well. A friend finally told me to dump it and go on from there...he was right. The ghost won on this one!
