#4910 of 4913 2013 Chrysler 300C Quality/Issues
Aug 10, 2013 (8:31 am)
I'm thinking about buying either a 2013 or 2014 Chrysler 300C in the next few months because I am a fan of RWD and they are few and far between unless you spend a ridiculous amount of money for a European model like a Mercedes or BMW. However, my concern is that in the past, Chrysler products always had good solid engines but suffered miserably from "fit and finish" issues. Could anyone address whether Chrysler vehicle quality and durability has improved from the past now that the company is managed by Fiat? Also, how has the fuel management system on the HEMI which deactivates the cylinders been performing? I'm curious about this operation since it proved to be a major problem back in the day when General Motors introduced it on the Cadillac with it's 8-6-4 arrangement. Please elaborate on any other issues with the 300C. Thanks for your help!

We have had our 300 limited for 1 year now. We got the limited because we did not want the Hemi which did not get good gas mileage. 30 -34 mpg on the HYWY. So we paid for all the upgrades that the Hemi had standard. Did have some problems with the computer(s) but it seems we are good. Car rides like a champ, heated and cooled cup holders along with heated steering wheel are a plus. Unlike many of the competitions cars, the passengers in the rear seat are very comfortable. Sun roof is a bit noisy when open, rear auto shade is nice.
Good luck with your new car.
