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?

Absolutely!!!!! It is all around the BEST car I've ever DRIVEN!!!! No real problems, and is one of the coolest rides out there. If I only had the money, I'd have a family of SRT8's.

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.

I had to go with 'Definitely Not'.

I plan on keeping my C for a long time, well after it is paid for, but I am leaning more and more toward someting in the Lexus lineup due to the experiences I have had with our ES and Lexus as a whole. That would be best for me...the C for grunt (and maybe future engine updates) with a classy, sophisticated, and extremely comfortable daily driver.

Positively

I sure would get another Chrysler product again. In fact I would buy my 05 "C" again. Best car I ever owned. I bought it from a small town dealer and they are great. I had my first glitch this past Sunday and when I called Monday morning, they said bring it in now so we can take care of it. (See my post under malfunction light in the search engine.)

Yes - I would buy another LX car from DCX. I have had only one small issue related to the O ring seals in the tranny. It was fixed by a very cooperative dealer here in central PA. Everything else has been fine for the last 12500 miles. I am a bit worried about the MPG that seems to vary around 12 to 15. On the highway I have gotten as high as 24 but mostly 20. Not bad but a far cry from my SUV that I thought had poor economy until my wife convinced me to buy the AWD 300c for her. Interesting to me because most purchases in our house are usually instigated by me. Now I drive it more than she does!

Oh yes I would definitely buy again and I’m planning on doing something for the upcoming Challenger. Not sure how I will swing it, but that one is turning up in the cards each time I look at my hand. :D

Definitely!!! I love my car - it is the coolest thing on the roads in Australia by a MILE!! In a couple of years I think I will trade up to the SRT8 but for the time being I couldn't be happier!:biggrin: Although if they bought the Dodge Challenger over here I'd be down to my local dealership with cheque book in hand! VERY COOL, TOUGH LOOKING CAR!
