Frequent, but scheduled or anticipated servicing is one thing.
Unscheduled component failures and bugs due to quality control is another.
I drive the 5.7L Hemi version of the 300C rather than the SRT8, and with that I have found it's a bucket of quality problems. For over 2.5 years I was visiting the dealership monthly for warranty fixes, a number of which were performed repeatedly. Now that I have drastically reduced the monthly mileage of my 300C, preferring to drive my other cars, the problems are now taking 2 months (rather than 1) to reveal themselves (although one problem seems to have emerged whilst the car was standing in the garage undriven for about a week, WTF!).
Suggestion: Take a look at readily available consumer reports on customer satisfaction, quality, reliability, etc before buying this car. It presents a sobering view of the manufacturer in general and the product in particular. I wish that such data was available at the time that I bought my 300C in 2006. That survey data could take you into a very different direction.
