    I know, I know. It's not a chevy. But I am thinking of buying one.

    I will need a nice vehicle with lots of interior space for when I get into real estate this spring. I took it for a test drive and it was a very fun car to drive. Very peppy and excellent handling for a car its size. I also think the multi-displacement system is nice. I could not tell the shifting from 4 to 8 at all.

    It has an elegant look at a good price. Have you guys heard anything that I should know about? Any problems you've heard of surfacing? Just want the heads up before I go spending $35k :deal:

    The only thing I've heard negatively about this platform is that the suspension system is a little weak.

    The 300C is an excellent car.. If you can get your hands on it... do it.

    You need to try and drive it then, it is unreal for a large car. The handling and pickup was still impressive even after the test drive of a 2004 volkswagon gli. I'm glad no one has any negative feedback :D

    Not dissing the 300C, but the new Impala SS runs a faster 1/4 mile, gets better mileage, and is $6,000 less in MSRP. Problem??? It's front wheel drive... :doah:

    They're a very nice looking car. We had a bad experence with Chrysler, Accident resolting from a part failure, even got a recall notice the same day it went into the body shop. We contacted Chrysler and they were very rude, and said it was our fault. So I will never own another Chrysler product again.

    ugly cars, ive driven a few of them and dont care for them, they feel really cheap to me and i would much rather have an impala SS or even a Cad CTS for the same price.

    I think those cars look TOUGH. If I were to get a new car the new Mustang would be first choice the 300 would be second choice

    if I was going to buy a luxury car it'd be the 300. freakin' sweet lookin cars. On the way to the grocery store I saw two punks (under 20) driving one like maniacs... they pulled out of a gated community, tires spinning, fish tailing into traffic etc. Not sure if they stole the car or were driving "daddys" car like they didn't care if they wrecked it...

    anyway, sweet car. Much rather have one of those than an audio or volvo or beemer or a Lexus etc etc
