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.

Pros

Great Power, Style, Control and Features!

Cons

Visibility on the poor side and gas mileage could be better (Though my lead foot tends to lead to more frequent fill ups)

Worth Every Penny Spent And Then Some! — Wonderful car over all. Ample power, stable and confident handling and great control in poor weather conditions. Spacious and very comfortable interior. Ride quality is amazing. Power output from the HEMI V8 is more than adequate, making this quite a fun car to drive. Once you are behind the wheel its difficult to believe that your driving one of the largest sedans on the road. I look forward to buying a new 300 in the near future!

Pros

3.5L engine loves the open road.  You appreciate your car when your driving the interstate with, handling and smooth ride all the way there.

Cons

3.5 L engines love to eat gas in the city! Car wasn't built to do the stop light dance. Hard leather seats get next to you after you've traveled  a couple of hours.

Love At First Sight — I absolutely love my car, bells and whistling, power and smooth ride. Next best thing to a Cadallic for sure. Body style trumps a 2013 any day and still selling strong. Factory system is excellent, only needed to add a base speaker and it sounds awesome.

Maybe The Best Car Chrysler Made — Well I have been in a 300, and let me tell you, it is crazy! you get full leather seats, a reliable steering and with ABS included! Safety is always first with chrysler, and thats what they implemented into the dashboard, it tells you when you have low gas, winshield washer and it also tells you when you are making a rough turn! overall I think that this is maybe the best car that I have been in.
