Gallery Compare It might seem strange to see a Chrysler product on the same shortlist as some very established European luxury marques, but keep in mind that the 300 was developed when Chrysler was owned by Mercedes-Benz , making the 300C's competitiveness less of a surprise.

I'll say this my brother in law has a 2009 300C(which is basically a dressed up Charger) and a few of my cousins who are cops they got in Chargers on the dept. I've drove both(not hard). I've drove Crown Vics before and I've drove Charger. One of my favorites the Pontaiac G8 got discontinued. but the Charger R/T or SRT-8 it's classic American muscle with attitude.

I am more than pleased with my '06 300C. Have logged 67,000 trouble free miles. Preformance is smokin' hot when you need it, great highway gas mileage. I give most of the credit to the Mercedes DNA it inherited. When that is gone and those defective Fiat genes infect the product line, the once- proud badge is doomed.

I don't know about Fiat being a turd. Fiat/Chrysler relationship still young. Its to early to tell. I'll say this I'm not impressed with Mincinnoi(spelling error sorry i know) guy from Italy. CEO from Fiat. yes he's a d-bag. but give it time.

I own a 2005 Chrysler 300 C with 110,000 miles. This car for the most part has been flawless.

If they would have upgraded the brakes to Brembo like the SRT 8 and mofied the engine to match the new Ram 390 H/P with 400+ torque, it would be a hot choice until the new one comes out in 2011.

you do know that the HEMI is made in Mexico, just saying, Country First, buy a V-8 4.7 Corsair engine, my bad, it's not offered in the 300C, charger and challenger, it was but Auburn Hills supposed to be offered but..........Management hates American workers, THEY HAD POSTERS with the new 300C, Chargers saying it will come with the 4.7 V-8 H.O. but then they took them down at my plant, Mack Avenue Engine Plant, located in a little place called AMERICA

Maybe Mr. Trout rented a well used/abused 2.7 6 stripper Charger. The entry level v6 is made more for fuel savings than hair raising performance. Also, rental cars are not a real good way to compare to a well kept, high end vehicle..Maybe it was ready for a tune up, or someone drove it without checking the oil level..Maybe kids or teens tore up the interior. Mr. Trout, if you are out there(that was an early comment- check the date), you should visit a Chrysler Dodge dealer and drive a new 300 or Charger with at least a 3.5. I think you will be pleasantly surprised...

Its my money, I'll buy what I want. I wanted a Hemi in my 300, and that is what I bought.I make decisions based on MY needs and wants, not on what your sorry ass wants for me. If I'm too stupid or evil to make my own decisions, then you are too evil or stupid to make them for me. Typical UAW slug.

Truthy,
Since you think an uncomfortable, underpowered Charger with a V-6 so small tha the tranny couldn't even find the right gear, "Rocks", more power to you. The visibility sucked and the controls were laughable. The speed stalk was where every other auto manufacturer puts the turn signal stalk. The turn signal stalk was a few inches under that. The car was about as sophisticated as the old Aries K car.
The Charger I rented couldn't hold a candle to the worst offering from Hyundai or any other crap brand; it was pathetic. You commented without knowing my particular experience, but hey, if you like Chrysler products, that tells me a lot, right off the bat.
Better stock up on these dogs while they're still making them - after all, they won't be around long, based upon Chrysler's auto sales figures. I prefer cars that were designed in the last decade and have decent powertrains, it's your right to buy any POS you choose !

I never said anything about a charger with a V6, only a v8 should ever be in any Charger, 300C, Challenger etc, those types of cars shouldn't have a V6, neither should a Mustang, it defeats the purpose

This is how the company builds them, markets them and sells them, which is why they are in the trouble they are in. The standard engine should be robust and matched to the car.

You never qualified your nasty comment to me as to only V-8s, go look at your reply - you simply said Chargers (all chargers, including the POS I rented) RULE; you knew nothing about the POS I rented, yet you blasted off a nasty post.

IGNORANT and RUDE.

There is a new v6 coming out this year- the pentastar, that is supposed to have the power of an 8, with better economy than most sixes..I am looking forward to seeing it as a replacement in many of the upcoming Chrysler vehix..

My 300C was assembled in Canada with a Mexican-built Hemi. I'm sure there were many American-made components. I couldn't care less if it were all-foreign or all domestic. I just get what I want, not what someone else thinks I should want.
