Would You Buy Another LX Car From DCX?

Recently, a Consumer's Report rated the 300C as one of the least reliable cars.

Does their opinion jive with the members on this forum (as a Moderator, I am aware that many initially joined this forum to get answers to a car related problem they were having).

This poll is very simple. Based on your experience with your LX vehicle, would you buy another one?

I'm very picky when it comes to vehicles and I would pull the trigger on an LX again in a heart beat. I think Joey summed it up best on the last thread regarding Consumer Reports...the LX has a few little glitches in which push it out of the "very reliable" area. But one can have those tweaked in no time and have a great car. Don't forget the LX is a vehicle that is pushed to the limit/s on all fronts due to the Hemi power etc....so you're going to have more problems with people pushing the car to the limits.

I guess I need to read the report and see what they base their stuff on...

I would go for a new LS, or 6 series Bimmer, but since I do not have that money yet, 300C is the best of all worlds. No big problems with it. Nothing misalligned. My biggest issue is some rattling noise in the roof which I read is covered by a TSB, but I am lazy/no time to go and make that loose thing to get glued back. Could have more friendly NAV and dark seat option on C and nicer centre console's bin.
