Editor's Overview

Perhaps the last of the traditional full-size, rear-drive American sedans, the 2012 Chrysler 300 proves there is something to be said for the configuration. It is roomy, quiet and offers...

Great style moderate reliability.

I really enjoy the comfort and style. The quality of most features is outstanding. However, there have been several recalls and a rather large number of mechanical issues. The original alternator failed and, unbeknownst to me, was replaced with an equally defective alternator because Chrysler couldn't supply quality replacement when needed. Also, there was the infamous "shift lever" recall in which the car was supposedly in "park" but would roll down incline when engine was turned off. I am impressed that the exterior surface has stayed extremely neat and shiny with merely washing, but no waxing. There has been some cracking of the vinyl console and armrest material.

Overall it works. It gets me from one place to the next and that is all I need.

The car is bulky and not very comfortable on long drives. The trim is super flashy chrome and draws attention from the police often. The car rides smooth. The back seats are crowded. The air conditioner does not work great if you sit in the back seats because of the positioning of the vents. The navigation system is outdated and does not choose the fastest route when driving or take into consideration the traffic flow. The rims are beautiful. The visibility in the back window is very limited and the car has large blind spots.

Convertibles are so much fun!

My vehicle is a convertible. It is very comfortable, looks great, has a huge trunk and the top goes up and down very easily. We also liked the color selection choice. It has had very little maintenance, and gets great gas mileage. For a convertible it actually has a fair amount of legroom in the back seat, so the car can seat four people. Due to the age of the car it does not have all the new t3chnology. We're I buying another convertible I would definitely look into the latest model of this brand.
