  2012 Chrysler SRT8: RIDICULOUS. COSTLY. AWESOME!
A member in New York, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Interior styling
The interior is higher in fit and finish than the 1st gen models, but there are problems.#1 Interior color choices are severely limited. Black or Red leather seats and arm rests - with "Sepia" (looks like Peanut Butter) joining the lineup for 2013. Unlike BMW/MERCEDES, Chrysler isn't ready to offer white or cashmere leather. It's sad because even KIA is doing so in their new Cadenza.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Tires
The original 300 SRT8 came with staggered tires 275/40/R20 and 245/45/R20 (Goodyear Eagle RSA). The new models only offer a $150 upgrade to 3-season summer tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 24 5/45/R20), but buyers with deep pockets can change that immediately.

  Get One....You Will LOVE IT

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Exterior styling
The exterior styling is either an "ILOVE IT!!!!!!!!" Or WTF did they do to it. I LOVE IT. The Led "C" running lights are beautiful. I know it is not the same sloped slab lexus, infinity, toyota, kia...blah blah blah....

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Dealer location
My one downside is the dealer. The just kind of suck. An oil change brings the cascade of items that would be nice to replace......and 2 hours later...you have your $65 oil change.

  I Love this Car
A member in Colorado, United States

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Past personal experience
I had a 2006 before this one. The main reasons that I chose it in the first place was leg room and how nicely it drove/handled. There is VERY little to no road noise in this car and i really was not disappointed by the power it has. I seriously considered the Hemi, but knew that it wouldn't be too long before I no longer had a license..hee hee. The main disappointment that I have is the gas mileage. Mine only gets between 22 - 24 miles to the gallon. Other than that, I feel very safe in my car and my 6' 3" son fits in it with no problem! I also absolutely LOVE Johnsons Auto in Brighton, CO. They really know how to treat their customers right and with respect.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Fuel economy
I am not impressed with the fuel economy that my car gets. It only gets 22-24 mpg. The sticker states 26-28. I get that it is a bigger, heavier car, but they need to be more honest and realistic about the mpg.

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Exterior styling
Nothing looks like a 300. Very distinctive styling that evokes a love or hate reaction. I happen to love it.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Exterior styling
Don't buy a Chrysler 300 if you want to blend into the crowd. It is too distinctive.

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Powertrain performance
The 3.6 Pentastar engine in this car is probably the most surprising performance engine I have driven considering the weight and size of the 300. Looking for a 300 and unsure what engine to get? The 3.6 choice will not be regretted.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Warranty, maintenance cost
I just wish Chrysler would compete with GM warranty.

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Exterior styling
Looks good up close and from a distance, at all angles. Nice paint job.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Powertrain performance
Engine is powerful enough; 4 speed transmission could use some adjustments. Acceleration is poor when torque converter clutch is locked up (this supposedly for better fuel economy).

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Exterior styling
Bold, agressive styling that says" American Made" with a few subtle "euro touches" as well. My color choice...Cool Vanilla...is, in my opinion, tops the collective color pallette of any/all availeble vehicles - foreign or domestic.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Reliability & durability
Generally the Chrysler cars are low on the reliability scale and I like to own a car a long time and not having it in the shop is a big factor. My last Lincoln was 17 years old when I got rid of it and I also had 76 Oldsmobile Cutlass for almost 18 years

Great looking, classy car.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Reliability & durability
I have a 1st year, but it has a weird buzzing problem with the speakers the dealer has never been able to fix, needed a torque converter at 39K and still downshifts funny every so often. Original equipment tires were crappy

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Exterior styling
It looks very mean and modern, it commands attention and looks high-end

Best Reason Not to Buy the Chrysler 300: Materials & workmanship
The paint on the outside of the car scratches very easily. The dashboard has mis-aligned panels and there are a number of rattles and clunks coming from inside the dashboard.

Best Reason to Buy the Chrysler 300: Powertrain performance
The 340 H.P. Hemi is a dream engine. Lots of power on hand when needed and very civilized when just cruising. The transmission is very smooth and very responsive. I love listening to this engine!!
