The exterior door handles are poor design and break easily not cheap to replace. In reality, though, if the worst I can say about the car is poor visibility, a basic interior and a dumb cruise system, that's a high compliment overall. There's lots of cheap Dodge Charger black and grey plastics, and the buttons and radio controls are also taken straight from Dodge. The replacement ones don't seem to leak.

The 300's namesake and inspiration, the original Chrysler C-300 of 1955, was one of the defining members of the big-muscle breed, powered by the original edition of Chrysler's famous hemispherical-head V8 known as the Hemi. As for the Charger, well it is more of the same, but in a more radical departure. The observed low was 12.
Keep in mind that this is a very heavy car at 5300 pounds that will do 0 to 60 in around 6 seconds stock. And you'd have to go for the gangster black paint over this sensible metaliic grey.

The car has been awesome besides regular maintenance only things I have replaced are shocks struts alternator thermostat and radiator. But you're right, the original 50's and 60's Hemis were the top dogs in their day and it seems a shame that Chrysler has squandered the badge's reverie by plastering on every mid-spec car in its portfolio. The 300C brings the 5. I doubt their German bosses paid much attention when the econobox Neon was turbocharged to within an inch of its life or when a Dodge Ram pickup truck was endowed with 500 horses.
The rear seat disappears while a full roll cage is added. Still only has 96K on odometer. Has the hype died down? It really is enourmous, with plenty of room for four adults, and five in a pinch.
