I dunno about the others, but our 300M sucks. The inside is shoddy, the headlights have gunk in them, the paint is cracking already.

hah, DC crap strikes again! Yeah seems like domestic cars are takin a real crap in recent years, and it seems that chrysler is leading the pack, with ford not too far behind! And GM isint exactly some perfect image either

But umm, since no one mentioned it, this is another place that tells yah the price...hah...i know im a little late but...eh

Every 300M Special I have driven has been in great condition.

Interiors get shoddy, headlights accumlate gunk and paint cracks, especially when not maintained. Don't even try to sell me on the fact that the car fell to crap all on its own, I bet it has 1000x to do with lack of proper maintainance.

Chrysler makes a decent product and the Daimler merger has only helped.

Then again I'm partial to the M Special and its not unlikely I'll have one soon.

BTW, the 300M wasn't a DC product. It was designed entirely before the merger took place.
The headlight issue is pretty much universal among Chrysler products. You can get a polishing kit from Auto-Zone that will help with that.

It'* just too much of a jelly bean car for me to like it, it does have some nice designs, but the performance would let me down everytime i drove it compared to what It should do. Then again i like the bad-*** of the C more then the semi luxo of the M.

Jay...I just cant get past the "wanna-be-attempt-at-Bentley" styling of the new 300.

The M Special with HIDs, body kit, dual exhaust, Michelin Pilots on 18" rims to me, is far nicer to the eye then the current offering.
