If you own or have ever owned a Chrysler 300C we would love to hear about your experience of this car and how any replacement parts performed when fitted to the vehicle. You can leave your comments in the comments box at the bottom of the page.
The Chrysler 300C is a full-sized sedan which is produced by the American automobile manufacturing company Chrysler LLC. This vehicle was introduced in 2005 and is currently in its second generation. The 300C name is used in Europe and Australia and there is also an estate version available in these markets. The latest version was released in 2012 and is a very well built car which has really good safety features and is extremely well equipped. You might think that this big gas guzzling US style car would not be successful in the UK or the rest of Europe for that matter, but it sold enough to warrant the second generation version being sold here as well. The handling is not great and as mentioned above, it uses a lot of fuel. Does the above sound anything like your experience of the 300C?
The first generation (2005-2010) was released in 2005 and was built on the Chrysler LX platform. The 300C shares several components from the Mercedes E-Class of this era. In Europe and Australia a station wagon (estate) version is also available, known as the 300C Touring. All European versions were built at the Magna Steyr factory in Graz, Austria. The 3.0L diesel version was released in 2008 and is a very well designed engine.
The second generation (2011-present) was introduced in 2011 and the station wagon version is no longer available, only the sedan. This version has a panoramic sunroof which offers greater visibility and also has several interior and exterior upgrades including new headlights and tail lights. It also has a new desinged Chrysler logo. This is the current version on the market.
In Europe the Chrysler 300C is available with either 3.5 or 5.7L petrol or 3.0L diesel engines. The 3.0L diesel is the most economical engine, offering around 36mpg, where the petrol 3.5L offers 25mpg and the 5.7L 23mpg. Which engine do you have and how does it perform economically?
