It is for sure the Chrystler version of the GP/Bonnie.


the interior is REALLY NICE though. meaning cleanly done but not old person like, but not totally flashy either.






something between the 2002+ bonnie seats crossed with the gp seats.

but they handle like the stratus which I am NOT a fan of.

Seats do look low rent and gramma like compaired to my LSS. If it really handles like a Stratus then I hate it.

They handle well, but they feel darty and hyperactive.

I dunno... to me, (IMHO) looks too low rent all-around.

Jim W...just a word to the wise.....the 300M is..well...less than desired.....this is coming from a owners that dumped theirs with 40K...... The HAVC went out and was a $2000 repair and a the Window that came off track ( more than one Tme) and cost $300 to fix the dash interior lights that would blink on and off ......that is a Very short list of probems that was encountered on that car...granted they are not all like that.......BUT personally Looks arnt everything...remember that bud....i dont want to see ya in a bad situation

I'm a member with the 300M club, and I've read a lot of good and bad, no car is perfect. I havent read about a whole lot of overly unhappy M owners on that site. I appreciate the concern Pat...thanks

Jerry, the interior of the M Special is ok, I like the Indiglo gages and the clock on the top of the dash. The only tacky thing is the fake carbon fibre inlays.

Thats the truth... The dealership here won't even touch a 2.7... they simply replace it with a new crate motor... Thay had sdaid somethinf about the timming being a PITA to set...

We pulled a 2.7 out of an Intrepid as it was knocking... Had the rods checked, and got a crank kit, new oil pump and the like... Put it back together and it actually ran really good... But the owner never checked the oil, it ran low after 7-10K miles, and developed a rod knock again...

We have seen a battery of these fail in 00-01-02'* its a shame to say the least...


Jim W, There is one of those 300M'* locally... I think its Blue over Charcoal trim.... Man is that thing a looker... If I ever have my digital Camera I'll have to snap a pic..

And the old 3.2/3.5'*... I have seen them with countless miles on them.... Some well past 200K... I have yet to see a 2.7 make it there...
