Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Chrysler 300C saloon?
While the 300C's cabin is a pleasant enough place, the plastics don't feel as high-quality as those used in European rivals. That said, the interior feels well assembled and we have yet to hear of any actual problems with the trim.
The Chrysler is too new for any significant reliability data to have been generated, but it's hard to not be a little wary: the marque failed to put in an impressive showing in What Car?'s reliability surveys, and it has received some below-average scores in customer satisfaction surveys.
However, because the 300C is based on the old Mercedes E-Class and is built in Europe, the signs are that this model should be more reliable than previous Chryslers, and we haven't heard of any engine or mechanical problems with it.
As with any executive, keep to the standard rules: pick a car that appears to have been well looked after, and which comes with a full service history.
