I love my 300c
This car is 12 years old now but i still feel its reviewable for anyone considering buying the first generation 300c the first thing I liked about this car was its comfortable leather seats have not had a car with more comfortable seats also heated and its great for the cold winter days, car is quiet, its no sports car handling is good I will upgrade the shock absorbers as the suspenion tends to be bouncy, its the ultimate cruiser, the 6.1 V8 is no hellcat but its got heaps of power when you need it, I do baby it constantly make sure its always...serviced on time that's the key to owning one of these don't neglect the servicing I just had the transmission fully serviced, bad points its low in the front I have had to have a professional repair to the bottom front because of those parking lot parking stops don't nose in always reverse in, the A pillar is a big and annoying, the car is heavy and you can feel the weight but get use to it, i hated the foot parking brake at first but now i like it, it is hampered somewhat by the 5 speed transmission a little out of date even at the time but its smooth and acceptable, parts expensive in Australia but save your money buy them from the states everything from body parts to mechanical parts, over all I love this car.

Lounge room sized motoring with good fuel economy
I drive my Chrysler 300 to work Monday - Friday
Take family for a relaxing drive locally
I have a sonata and other Chrysler vehicles and our mechanic changes the oil and oil filter every 6000 klms..At our request
Genuine mopar parts are used..And yes there is a difference from an aftermarket part
Keep service and check up regular basis and the Chrysler will offer trouble free motoring
Fuel does not bother me at all ..As I choose to own and drive a car offering safe lounge room sized comfort..

SRT V8 beast
Looks mean. Power to boot. Looks way better than the other Ford and Holden V8s. Plus it makes more power. Definitely bang for buck machine. But like all V8s, fuel consumption is high. Unbeatable soundtrack though.
Purchased in September 2014 at Ford Dealers.
Comfortable but poor build
Very nice appearing vehicle. I had the black with factory black wheels. Fully loaded with options which you normally only find in cars that cost a lot more. However build quality is poor. By 20,000km the wrap around the steering wheel was coming off. Had to be glued back on. At 25,000km the spring loaded compartment cover had broken. Maybe I got a lemon. But I really enjoyed driving it.
Purchased in March 2016 at Chrysler Dealers.
Very spacious sedan with V8 6.4L. Beast
Very smooth.. roar like anything.. only thing people can see is its taillights and dust left behind. Nice leather interior. Head turner on traffic lights.
Happy chrysler owner from last 8 years.
Mopar or no car.
Chrysler 300 2012 3.6 problems
In 2015 I bought a used Chrysler 300 2012 with 27k on cluster from Tynan Motors Sutherland. At 60k my alternator was burned. I tried to find another one on google and I saw that was a safety recall in USA for alternator,even I had a warranty,guys from Tynan didn't want to hear about that,like... it's changeable part and I have to pay for new one. After many emails and calls we decided to take legal action and we send them a email to tell that... Maybe one hour after that email, they call us to tell that we can bring the car to them and they gon...na put a new one with no charge. Now the car has 140k on cluster, it runs very well with no mehanical problems. Only I have an electrical problems with back camera,it doesn't work and cruise control,sometimes it works,sometimes not working. Sorry for my English Cheers.

T36 Recall a nightmare
FCA had a T36 recall which had the Alternator to be replaced as according to their recall campaign it states that "the alternator on your vehicle may experience diode thermal fatigue failure due to cyclical loads induced by electro-hydraulic power steering (EHPS). If the diodes fail, the alternator will no longer supply electrical energy to the vehicle and may lead to a vehicle stall without warning, increasing the risk of crash." Tried to book my car for this recall with the authorised dealer but they had no parts in the country.

Worst service and manufacturing defacts
We bout 2 x 300c luxury in aug 2013 both diesel. One had lot of issues with engine and got it fixed after 2 years of complaints and leaving cat at several dealerships. Both of cars had same issue where leather dash starts peeling of form front its very common manufacturing problem with this cars. we got one car fixed under warranty but they refused to cover second one under warranty. I will never recomend any one to buy any fiat chrysler products as there quality of service at dealerships is worse then poor, same there products.
Purchased in August 2013.

Beast with Beauty!
As a kid it was one of my dream cars to own and now that dream has come true. What a beautiful car it is with a power packed engine, with 6.4 Hemi you don’t have to tell how much power it gives. Yes little expensive on fuel but elegant things doesn’t come cheap. Definitely a big yes for this car.
Test drive was good, 1 week later I picked up the 300c and payed 20k then had to buy new springs
Suspension had to be changed, as you where bouncing up and down, as someone didn't no what they where doing All over the place couldn't put passenger's in the back seat or go over 70 kl 2 k later i Now can enjoy my chrylser 300c sedan, car yards just never change... Martin smith Gippsland...

6.4 Hemi engine failures
Same with us, I will never buy a Chrysler again. WE have a 2013 SRT8 Core that has had the engine fail twice - top end rebuild then a full engine replacement. Jeep Australia are dodgy, paid for the first repair (5 weeks off the road with no courtesy vehicle), then a total rebuild but would only pay for 1/2 the engine and no labour.
We have a court date with Fair-trading NSW and Jeep in two weeks time so trying to gather some data to support our position that it was the same issue. Car has done 130 km in 4 years and fully serviced - although Je...
