#11 of 20 300c rwd is good in snow
Jan 23, 2008 (3:44 pm)
I live i Minnesota and i both a 300c in July of last year. Like everyone is saying get a goo set of tires. I 'm still running my 18's with Kumo all seasons and it is geat for driving in snow. Also add three 60 lbs sandbags also and that help it even more. Don't get rid of the car.

As anyone experience clunking noises from the undercarriage of this car?.
The shocks are fine and cannot find anything missing. Could the sway bar or any bushings in these components cause these noises?

If you are getting clunking noises it is because the sway bar end links have gone bad. Replace the end links and you will be fine.

I live in Michigan and we have had a terrible winter. I have a 2006 300C and I put a set of Cooper Weather Master snow tires on the rear along with 3-70# bags of sand in the trunk. I can go anywhere a front drive car goes. I have not gotten stuck even once. I grew up in Pennsylvania many years ago when all there was was rear drive cars, and learned how to drive in the winter.I prefer the predictable handling of a rear drive car.

I beg to differ with gary154. I've had my 2005 300C for 3 yrs now & I live in a very snowy area -- Eastern Ontario. With good winter tires the car is considerably better than a front wheel drive car on all-seasons -- the fwd is not even close in fact (I had a 2001 300M & still have a 99 Concord LXi -- they need winter tires as much as the 300C does). The 300 is far more fun to drive in snow than the front drivers & I have never come close to getting stuck. The ESP & traction control work very well indeed on this car -- but winter tires are the real trick.

The experience level and maturity of a driver is readily apparent in adverse conditions. Typically, if you live in an area of the world where you must contend with deep snow, you probably would not choose to purchase a nice road car with only about five inches of ground clearance to drive in the winter. The front air dam can become a snow plow and (at least) damages the paint. I have never been stuck or slid off the road in my 2006 300C, and I believe it is because I use due prudence and caution especially when conditions are not good. The ESP and antilock braking systems are excellent additions to an already very stable handling car, but I don't expect them to keep me out of trouble. I have seen plenty of high profile, expensive SUV's sliding off the road into ditches by overly confident drivers who think the laws of physics do not apply to them or their "super" cars. They are usually the ones who impatiently pass on the right side, exceed the posted speed limits even on snow packed roads, steer abruptly and brake late. Rather than take advantage of the ability of their vehicle design to keep them safe, they drive as if they are invulnerable. Nothing is more ironic than to see a $50,000+ SUV on its side because the owner was convinced their driving skills instantly improved when they "signed on the dotted line".
