2002 Chrysler 300M

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I bought this car basically new from a Russian college student who was heading back overseas for an extended period of time, and didn't want to take the car with him. I originally found the vehicle listed on a classified ad site, and after meeting the guy and doing a brief test drive, he sold me the car.

I absolutely love this car. It rides so smooth and effortlessly, that it is like gliding on air. The color is some kind of light beige-champagne mix, and aerodynamically it looks streamlined and sleek. I especially like the 20" chrome wheels, as I am a sucker for nice wheels. The interior consists of black leather seats, black carpet on the floors, and wood-grain paneling along the doors. The model I have is fully loaded, and has power-everything. The dashboard is analog and has a nice greenish backlight for night driving, and there is a CD player built into the radio.

The trunk is huge, and has a spare tire under the trunk lining that is easy to get to. This car gets around 18-20 miles per gallon, and accelerates instantly whenever I press my foot to the metal. Probably my favorite feature of all is the moon roof. In the summer, on a starry night heading back from late-evening grocery shopping, feeling the breeze come in through the moon roof is pure joy.

Although I am in love with this car, I do have one big gripe about it -- the steering. For some reason, the steering is not as "tight" and responsive as I am used to. It feels like something is loose or worn down in the steering column. I looked up this model on some online car forums, and a lot of other owners of this make and model have the same issue. Some forum posters say that it is just how this particular model was built, but I am not convinced a mechanic couldn't improve its responsiveness.
