I'm getting a real kick out of reading the remarks from some of the youngsters about "how they just blew a Charger off the road" or "just can't wait to get their hands on this Hemi". I've owned my 300C for about 10 months now. It's my eighth new Chrysler Product and one of the very worst. The fact of the matter is this vehicle has some real quality issues and Chrysler Corporation is doing an awful job of managing them in my opinion. My Continental tires (speced by Chrysler) wore out in 11,000 miles and this is a standard problem being experienced by thousands of customers. My "Chrome Wheels" corroded after just five months - another common 300C problem. This is one of the worst performing vehicles i have ever driven in the winter and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone living in a snow climate. I had to garage my 300C for 2 months last winter - awful performance. The tires are too wide for the car and the Dog Legs (poorly designed panel just in front of the rear tires) are being pebble blasted by the wide front tires and required repainting at about 9,000 miles and less than 6 months of driving. Of course, they cannot be re-painted without re-painting or blending into the rear quarter panels - a pretty expensive venture. I would not recommend driving the car out of the show room without having custom mud flaps put on the front - just behind the front tires. I can go on and on but i think I'll stop at this point. This car looks great and this Hemi runs like a Hemi. However, owning one can become a pricey and aggravating experience. My dealers service department sees way way way too much of me. This buyer would recommend extreme caution prior to buying a Chrysler 300C. Personally, I wouldn't have another one and i'll be unloading this one.
