High acceleration and performance at speed.

Brakes and cost of replacing front bumper 3X.

Love It And Will Probably Never Sell It. — This car is an excellent performance value. It really has only a few faults: Brakes and Front Spoiler. The front brakes tend to warp the rotors rather often and the front spoiler is so low it hits the ground and gets damaged often. Mechanically, the car is otherwise well designed.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

This car is rare and combines both luxury and performance exceptionally well. Truly a solid sports sedan in every way!

Cons

This car is only my recreation and leisure vehicle not a daily driver. I only have 43k miles on it and haven't found a negative yet!

Rare, Fun, And Very Exciting To Own And Drive! — I love how Chrysler and SRT has combined the luxury of the Chrysler 300 and the performance of a solid muscle and sports car. You get the best of both worlds with this vehicle! if you get the chance to buy one ...do it!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Solid Car — This car is so fun to drive each day. You can point it where you want to go and it gets you there right away. This is the best car I have driven all my life. It's sporty, but at the same time classly as well. It has amazing sound system and Nav to boot. I would recommend this car over and over.

Love It. — very impress by performance, acceleration and handling. Lot of after market parts are available to upgrade performance. I added cold air intake, magnaflow double exhaust, lowered the front suspension with Eibach suspension and diablo chip. Gonna install headers this spring. Also have a carbon fiber hood, but this will be the only non original body part.

Pros

Powerful V8 6.1L Engine. 425HP 0-60 in about 5 seconds.
6 disc CD player, Satellite XM Radio (subscription required), Navigation and rear DVD entertainment center. Kicker surround sound.
Bluetooth and voice recognition.
Rear parking sensors.
Leather and suede seating with heated front seats.
Sunroof.
Roomy interior.
Stock HID Xenon headlights.
20 inch stock chrome rims and Brembo brakes.
Really good gas mileage considering the type of engine it has. 18 mpg city/ 23 mpg highway.

Cons

Stiff suspension. Ride can be a little rough.
Gear shift response time can lag at times.
When parking forward in some spots with the concrete block on ground, you can rip off the front ground effects along with the front bumper/fender.
Premium fuel grade only.
Replace tires every year.
Rotors tend to take a heavy beating.

Love Chrysler Srt8 — I love this car. It's a fun street racing car with lot of luxury. You really don't feel like you're driving a large sedan because of the handling and sporty features it has. I still get complements on how new it still looks or how beautiful it is. I love Chrysler 300 SRT8s and would definitely keep buying them. For the price and all the options you get, its better than luxury cars of the same class and price.

Great — The car great for family life and traveling if that's your thing. Also if you are into hooking up the car putting rims on it and or racing well this is the car for you. So don't be shy take a look.

Pros

Sold my vette because it was so hard to get in and out of and got the 06 300c. this car is fantastic, more buttons and gadgets than i know what to do with and it has a hemi, color is like my vette is was only used for two years, charcol mettalic,iterior is the deluxe and the ride and gas mileage is very good, leather is everywhere and in fantastic shape, not a thing wrong with the car but a few more miles that the vette, but i can drive it anywhere and anytime of the year,not like the vette, so far I love this car. still have some personal touches, but those things take time, I've bem a GM person all my life, but they offer me nothing that i like except the camaro conv, but who can afford it.

Cons

Not used to the linkage on the gas pedal yet, and it does not handle like the vette and sometimes i forget that.

Very Good — just the extra milage, the vette was babied and had never seen water or bad weather, with the 300 i have a very plush and nice car that I can drive every day of the year. and if it get dirty i can wash it.
