Black 300c

Purchased from Downsview Chrysler

Purchased / delivery May 20, 2004

Coldest start: -29C Monday Dec. 20, 2004

Problems:
1) Wipers and Turn Indicators fail at random during cold weather ... very unpredictable ... example: works on the way into work ... parked under ground ... fails on the way to lunch ... 90 minutes later after lunch also still parked under ground works fine on the way back to work. Plan to have the software updated this coming week (assuming dealer knows how).

Question:
1) Looking for good service dealer which provides rentals during drop off maintenance in north GTA.

As of 2004-12-27
I tried to get the EVIC 3.61 upgrade but the 5 STAR dealer service rep. didn't know what I was talking about. I did have the bracket and coolant recalls addressed. I will call around to find another dealer for the EVIC update.
As of 2005-01-05
Richmond Hill Chrysler service manager offered to do the upgrade. Once I arrived they realized the needed to upgrade their software tools first ... but they did get the upgrade installed. Plan for more time than they quote. Hope this fixes the wipers and temperature issue.
As of 2005-06-28 - 40,200 km
Richmond Hill Chrysler service continues to provide excellent service for all the basic oil changes etc.
1) Requested the wheels be replaced due to pitting. Dealer suggests removing the wheels and having them refinished. Looking for other experiences in Ontario. Northern Rider (Ottawa) suggested he had his replaced by the dealer. Work scheduled for next week. Will see.
2) Sunroof noise (plastic rubbing) and expect a little silicon will get us through the summer.
3) Pulling to the right ... has only been a minor annoyance but now it is definitely showing excessive tread wear on the front driver outside edge. Asked dealer about replacing the front tires and a proper alignment.
4) Brakes pulsing ... tried the re-seat approach but the pulsing returns.

Hello from Cambridge Ontario. I don't have a 300C yet but soon. How the pricing in TO? Any room for improvement? I haven't seen the Deep Lava in person yet but it looks like something I might consider in a AWD 300C if I can't swallow the 300 C SRT-8 price in only black and silver. I haven't been able to get a price on the SRT-8 at all.

Hello from London

Got my VIN for my 05 300C SRT8 2 days ago! Brilliant Black with every available option. Expect build date 3-4 March. Can hardly wait to put it in my garage and look at it, ha ha. Hope they start building again this week as production sure seems sloooow. There will only be 7 of these in Ontario. Anybody know of a 300 club or group in SW Ontario?

Looking for Sirius radio also and went to Port Huron Chrysler dealer and he said $300.00 for the hardware and $300.00 for instillation. Where are you getting yours from and who is installing it for you? Also don't you have to have a American residence for Sirius and how do you get around that?

This may seem a little strange to you, but I didn't even ask and still don't know what it will cost. The Canadian MSRP is $49,995. With option 1 & 2 I'm guessing it'll be around $60K when all is said and done and that's without my dealer going over MSRP, which he won't.
As soon as I found out about the car last August, I told my salesman I wanted one black, fully loaded with EVERY option available. I put $1000 down on it and they fax'ed my order to Chrysler Canada even though the MSRP wasn't even announced in Canada till a couple of weeks ago. This was mid December on the same day I picked up my 05 Ram.
By acting early I KNOW this is the reason that I'll own one of only 17 2005's in Canada and one of only 224 in the world. This is not the car to haggle over and those that did will be sitting in an 06 model come 29 March. Not that there's any difference that I can determine between the two, but from a collector point of view, given the very low production numbers, the hype and feeding frenzy there's been out there, it will most definately appreciate and always be worth more than the 06. If Jay Leno wants one, what does that tell you?

Me and my C will be passing Thee whenever I see Thee! LOL! :)
Hey guys let's get a 300C club going and have some meets this summer.
Since this car was built in Canada we should keep up to the US clubs by
having all our shows. Anybody interested? Email Mickeyboy or post
message to Mickeyboy.
Later........
Hi Mickeyboy. I agree.

Do you want to be the regional (Ontario) director for Club300?

If so, please send me a PM.
