You are in the Chrysler 300M
What is this discussion about?
Chrysler 300M, Sedan
Oct 12, 2001 (1:15 pm)
I just purchased a brand new 2001 300m at a great price since the 2002 models are out. I almost did not purchase the car because of horror stories I have heard about Chrysler but I thought about the horror stories I have heard about Ford and I have owned 2 thunderbirds that have not give me any troube until I reached 100,000 miles. Therefore, I decided to take a blind leap of faith and purchase a 2001 300m.
First off, this is undoubtedly the best looking, sportiest car with the most features at this price range. Therefore, it was easy to decide to make this purchase because it brought more to the table than any of its competitors.
Also, in 1 week i have logged about a 1000 miles driving it (i commute to work every day about 100 miles round trip) and I am absolutely in love with the way it drives. Furthermore, I look forward to driving it everyday and this is early to say but I do not forsee myself getting tired of it any time in the future.
My analysis of the car at this point is all great, the only thing I dislike is sometimes it rides a little rough and I wish the steering wheel controls were lighted. However, these minor complaints do not in anyway change my belief that this is a wonderful car. Also, I don't mind giving up a little softer ride to gaing the handling and hp of a 300m.
My 300m is a bright silver metallic with chrome wheels, full size spare, side airbags, 360 watt stereo system, overhead trip computer, and moonroof.
Thanks guys for listening and I will be posting on this board from time to time to learm about how to care for this car. My first question is what should I wash or wax my car with for my first time washing it this weekend and how do I get that kinda rust oxidation off of my brake rotors behind my rims?
Be seeing you!

Congrats on your new car! Lots of people here swear by Zaino car polish. It's a 2 (or 3) step polish, and they have lots of other car products (leather treatment, etc.). You have to mail order it. Go to http://zainobros.com/ to check it out. Also check out membership in the 300M Enthusiasts Club, http://www.300mclub.org

Thanks for the tip.

Congrats on the car. I've used many different car care products. Zaino is by far the best. It looks great and has good durability. Additionally, Sal Zaino is great about answering any questions you have. In my experience, e-mail response time is usually within 2 hours. I recently purchased a Town and Country for the wife in bright silver metallic. The Zaino looks great on it.

#10225 of 26385 koolk300m...brake rotors

Congratulations and welcome!
The rust on the rotors will come off the first time you apply the brakes. All rotors rust when the car stands for a while...dont worry about it.
I am surprised at your mention of a rough ride.
Do you have the PHG? That sometimes produces a rougher ride, but only on harsh pavement.

Congrats and welcome! I hope you enjoy your M as much as I do. Don't worry about the rust. That will wear off due to braking/friction. Mine had it too.
