Pros

Great gas mileage, a lot of room in front and rear, quiet cabin, looks good at all angles.

Cons

A little short on power with the 2.7 v6.  Sits very low, I have scraped the cross-member on a speed bump with 4 large passengers.

Pros

This vehicle is a great family hauler, especially on long trips. The truck is rather large and it cruises at highway speed very comfortably.   Front and rear seat room is adequate for 4 full size adults.  With the 3.5L, highway fuel economy is decent at 26-28mpg (depending on average speed). Interior quality is nice and everything is easy to reach and use (navigation, dual HVAC, radio, cruise control ect).

Cons

vehicle is sluggish when accelerating from a stop and overall feels heavy/sluggish in basic parking lot maneuvers. combined fuel economy is around 22mpg (50% city ad 50% hwy).

Great Family Car — Overall, the car has been great for me as we have taken long trips across country and often travel out of state to see family. I bought a 2nd set of wheels and winter tires for the snowy months because the traction when launching the vehicle was poor. Over then oil changes, I had to replace the tie rod ends at 75000miles, and the engine consumed oil (about 1/2 qt. every 500 miles). The oil consumption issue was fixed under the powertrain warranty at 55000 miles. Dealership found oil control rings to be seized in all 6 pistons as the cause of oil consumption (Note: I changed oil at 6000mile, per the owners manual). With respect to the suspension, I felt the vehicle handled very well at highway speeds. However, at low speeds/loads, the vehicle tended to role more that I would like when going into turns (i.e. soft suspension)....then again, this isn't a performance vehicle. The interior craftsmanship is very good, the road /wind noise is minimal and there are very little rattles/squeaks coming from any of the interior trim panels.

A car that handle your family, that is so sharp, you'll get looks from everywhere, this car is FAST, REAL Fast, top speed 173, from the factory, check them out on UTUBE

Cons

Gas milage in town about 15 mpg, highway about 19, sometimes a litlle better. The tires spin easily with out trying, it begs to be throttled !

Awesome, Fast Car, Can Hold 5 People,plus Inside And Out....outstanding! — The SRT8 Chrysler 300C SRT* is an awesome car, its very fast, very fast ! It rides like a sports car, great handling, hugs the road, as you step on the accelerator, you will feel like the cars in the 60's and 70's. Fast with loads of torque. The seats hug you just right, the SRT8 logo right into the seat, it is a beautifull car in and out. When you look inbetween the spokes of the mags, you see awesome large, shiney, break calipers, with slotted rotors for extra cooling, the braking system is so good, you stop so fast, you will need to look in the reveiw mirror to make sure you don't stop to quick, others have no idea how quickly this car car be slowed down, with just an easy touch of the break pedal.....

Awesome — its a beast of a car, excellent drive all round, looks like a million quid would look, although the car is massive, the 3l engine allows it to pick up speed very fast. obviously i have to say the sound system inside s the best i've seen and it is off the hook
