300m'* are very nice cars. They handle VERY well, and the Special is VERY quick.

I like the power of the 3.5 It will definately haul azz. But, the 300m and Intrepid have known DANGEROUS steering issues. There has been numerous document cases where people were injured and killed from the inner tie rods breaking and te vehicle going out of control. I have down countless inner tie rod bussings on these cars. Its expensive, time consuming, and a PINA!!!! Read this before you buy one. http://www.dodgechryslersteeringproblems.com/

I think you need to drive another one John. I see no signs of a slow shifting trans in that video.

Never heard of the steering problems, even reading many reviews on many different sites. No they dont seem to shift that slow, but everything seems slow compared to the bonny!

If I can find one (an M Special) in the next couple of years with decent lower miles, I'd love to get one. I absolutely love the styling.

i drove one and didn't like the ride. I felt every bump. Maybe it was the one I drove, but I bought a DeVille instead.

TransGo has a shift kit that really wakes things up.
