By far the best looking minivan, but this is just not the tight ship one gets from the two other major brands. I have strange noises coming from the front drive train and a creaking suspension. It’s only a year old! And the dealers say they are normal sounds...take that

Nice care that very much suits our needs. However, something is always wrong with it. Transmition hard shifts, radio quits working, air conditioning quits working, power doors have quit working. A pain to keep up with.

I've had 3 different Chrysler 300C's over the years. This 2013 one stinks. Headlights are terrible - we live in a forest and it's dark - you can't see anything with the lights - barely good with brights on. Transmission is new with more gears - it's terrible too -
