My review of the Chrysler 300C 5,7 HEMI

ok, there have been many reviews like these one lately and i had a chance to ride an interesting car so...

our site have been testing 300C HEMI for few days now and i think i've got enough knowledge to write a short review of it


everybody can see how does the car look like - you either like it or not, hard to be neutral about it. i personaly don't find it beatiful but it has something impressive about it and i would like to ride one

interior is... crappy. it looks bad; things don't suit one to another, and the materials are just cheap. the interior lights don't work, same as the clock and trunk opener (you need to open it manually from inside)

i really hope it's only matter of that one car

even though i didn't like the interior, i forgot about it really fast because of the engine - i have to admit i adore that engine, the power in blend with that power is marvellous. the car itself fortunately isn't overpowered and there aren't any problems with controlling it, even on big speeds (we achieved top speed of it). the only thing i can say i didn't really like were the brakes, it's hard to feel them, although on smaller speeds there tend to be too hard. everybody knows what suspension american cars do have, this one is the same

i can say two bad things about the engine - big fuel consumption as for our standarts 15-20 l/100km and that it is soo big that it's hard to maneuvre with such a big block in front of you

to sum up - i don't like sitting in it, but riding is really exciting and if anybody would like to buy that car, don't ever choose the less powerful version

everybody knows perfectly how does the car look like so i won't be uploading any pics, if someone is really interested i'll post a link to the gallery tomorrow

interesting films will be included later as well

Did you have any problems with the Auto lights at all?

The best thing about this car might be it's Mercedes roots. And the donk.

even if engine itself isn't that big, then all the fron part of the car is big, compared to other cars, even from the same class

and it's not only my opinion it's hard to drive at small speeds and, for example, park between two cars, first thing that comes to your mind when you're driving it for the first time is - what a long hood it is

Ill give you that, Ive never driven one, but have only heard good things. You have to keep in mind this is a full size sedan, not really made in mind for small European roads.

Over exaggeration, I never hear any complaining about the size of full sized Euro-saloons on Europeans roads, like the S-class. Even though the 300 looks qiut blukky appereance.

i've seen a few of them here already and i have to say that the 300C looks very manly especially in black... i love it.

On my way home from swimming today, i saw a silver 300C and it had a number plate that says "4 Chics"... WTF?!

by the way, i dont think the 300C was designed to be a race car, so dont expect it to behave like one. Not every car is designed to be powerful and great to drive... IMO, the 300C a city car for business people.. basically...
