After my brilliant 3.0CRD Touring, traded for a Srt Design saloon, with a startech chip, what a car, in black with 20" alloys it looks mean and after 3 yrs still turns heads when you drive alond road, had for 3 yrs and no issues, average with chip on mpg if you drive carefully was a staggering 45mpg, however, when you uses all the horses it drops to about 34mpg but you are showing up much more expensive german saloons in power and presence.
Dealer Horsham Car Centre are brilliant great service from sales and service, really friendly and helpful.
The only downside they have stopped making it, and await the new model seen in USA. Only concern they have dropped Merc engine from press releases seen, no launch date in UK yet but await with interest.
Well done Chrysler
Mine is a de-restricted 5.7 Touring with all the toys. Before coming to the UK, I owned a number of Hemi's in Canada and the US so I know about American cars. When we moved to the UK from Maryland, we brought our Mercury Sable wagon with us and recently decided that old Betsy ought to be retired. I happen to need a big station wagon and, I like to enjoy my driving although I only do about 5,000 miles per year. I looked at all makes and decided on this one, 9 months old, 11,000 miles on the clock, for less than HALF what the original owner paid. Which leads me to my selling point: BUY USED!!! GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY!!! Fabulous car with Ferarri performance, and yeah, it sure does turn heads.
A good car for the price. If you want a large, statement like car, then a 300C could well be the car for you. I have had mine for a year via a leasing company in Black and with 22" wheels - 265/35/22's do the job well. 20 inch don't fill those arches. The wheels, although a bit heavier, did not affect the excellent performance of the Mercedes sourced engine, chasis and gearbox. Kick down is achieved if you bury your foot, the gear box reluctant to respond to faint pushes of the accelerator. Mid range is excellent - this car really flies along and breaking the speed limit is all too easy. Stopping is good from the big brakes. Cornering - well this car is a US car and not a UK bred car, so go in too fast and expect a lot of body roll on the standard 18" wheels. My 22's minimised that considerably. If concerned go the SRT design model - on 20" wheels but lowered and on the SRT suspension. Remember msot American's drive on straight roads, no roundabouts and few corners from state to state! I enjoyed this car. It served me and my brood well but time to move on. Don't buy new - they fall through the floor but a fabulous second hand buy. Go for a model with the 30GB music drive and newer models have the dark leather, anthracite. Mine was grey and a bit dull. Lastly the Bentley Grille turns this car into a real head turner and not expensive to have fitted. eBay sell them.
"Cabin plastics and image can't match those of German rivals."
They are not trying to match them!!! CAN'T YOU COMPREHEND THAT? The car costs a fraction of similarly sized German sedans. Chrysler could easily make the cabin plastics match or exceed any rival, if you want the price to go up dramatically.
It's a beautiful car made for cruising in comfort to your next destination. Nothing else compares to it for the money.

I've had 6 VWs now including this one and it is a mixed bag. In no particular order the economy is poor despite the FSI badging and in town never…
Why is there so much whining about the rear sets? It's small - it's called a "mini" (hint). It didn't get any smaller after you bought it, so deal…
