What used Chrysler 300C saloon will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Chrysler 300C saloon?
Again, the diesel is the model to choose if you want to hold on to more of your hard-earned cash. It's the most fuel-efficient, for instance, returning an official average of 34.9mpg, and falls into group 16 for insurance. The 3.5 V6 is in the same insurance group, while the 5.7 V8 attracts a group 18 rating.
Pick the V6 and you'll be visiting the petrol station much more frequently, due to its official economy 25.7mpg. Go for the 5.7 V8, though, and you'll soon be on first-name terms with the forecourt staff - it returns a terrifying 11.1mpg average. However, when cruising, the V8 engine automatically shuts down four cylinders, improving economy to about 21mpg.
Whichever you choose, repair costs are likely to be high should anything go wrong - labour rates at Chrysler dealerships are well above average.
