Ok, so I acquired this 300, 2006, 84,xxx miles, leather seats, sunroof, V6


What's is the damn thing worth?? It seems like it should be around 6 grand on a dealer lot. So maybe 3500 to sell outright?

Overwise....
So I don't know what to do with it.
I don't really like Chrysler stuff, they are just cheap vehicles.

So do I drive it? Sell it? Trade it?
Twin turbo it? Or ???

Sell it before it starts having issues. Some retarded gangsta wannabe will snatch that up...


Spend the money to have it professionally detailed first, and price it right, it'll be gone fast enough.

When you say "acquired", how much do you have into it? It's got low miles and is in good shape- I'd DD it for a while if you don't need the money.

I have a few thousand in it. I guess I say aquired because I didn't write a check at a car dealer, type of thing... It's a super long story, but, it boils down to as payment for unpaid work. At this point I don't need the car and I don't necessarily need the money. I needed the money 6 months ago when I did the work...
I literally have 8 running/driving/tagged/insured cars and trucks in my driveway, this makes 9.... For two drivers. Something needs to give.

Yep, selling it was probably always no 1 option. But I also not really sure what to ask for it. Maybe start at 6?

My mother in law is on her second 300. They are good old lady vehicles kinda like a different version of a Town Car or Continental. Sell it!

Yeah I'd say 6k is a good price for it. What is the NADA? Around here all the banks go by it.

Yeah I'd do 6 obo and maybe cut it off at 5,500 if you're not in it much. I always like to let people feel like they got to haggle me down a little and still got a good deal.

A good detailing can make a car look like it's worth $1,000+ more than one that's just clean, well worth the $100-200 detail job will cost.

I used to detail cars back in the day.
So I'm not to worried about it.
I probably clay bar it. It doesn't need a buff at this time.

Dump it. They have problems with the suspension bushing design are constant headaches. I had an 05 but I had the hemi. As heavy as they are I’d hate to drive thev6

Good, good,good. That's what I was searching for...

It's a gutless pig.

Guess I should have been clearer with my OP. I was wondering what known problems they had.

I put a quick ad up, I'll see if any fish bite.

I always liked the way they look. that roof line looks chopped, imo. add a "sexier" paint job and it'd a decent looking ride. again, imo

Mine was black on black with dark tint and black wheels. If it wasn’t for the hemi I’d have hated it. But it looked amazing and was super comfy. People always think it’s a mob car coming at them which I was fine with.
