Well it's not new but it is loaded! 2006 Chrysler 300C, Hemi V8, power everything including steering wheel and pedals, sunroof, navigation, chrome wheels, 6-disc in dash CD changer, leather with aluminum/chrome accents! The engine will drop cylinders at cruising speeds so the fuel economy is just as good as my 1997 Honda CR-V was! The seats fold down so there is plenty of room for the birds also. I am pretty excited considering just a day ago the CR-V croaked The Honda gave me 10 good years though, hope this one does as well.....Ron

Though I drive only Toyotas, I think that is one classy looking car. My neighbor has a dark blue one w/22 inch rims, and it looks sharp as hell. Nice ride!

If everyone is thinking alike, someone isn't ...

Recently I test-drove a Jeep Commander with that engine in it -- WOW. Fun!

Very nice ride! I just bought a Maxima 6 months ago, and had I known these run on fewer cylinders at crusing speed for better fuel economy I may have bought one of those instead!

Nice ride Ron! 15MPG around Town and 23MPG on the highway... I could live with that.

EPA Estimated.

Hemi powered feel and influenced right foot estimated mileage will likely be 8mpg around town and 15 highway

I know I'd be stomping on the little pedal much more if I had a hemi in my car...

The novelty wears off after you have to fill up a few times at $4.10 a gallon... Back in the $1.75 a gallon days, my foot was much heavier indeed.

don't get a good sounding exhaust for it. Your bank account will be sorry

I got a Borla exhaust for my car and my mileage instantly went down the tubes until I relaxed my foot

Thanks for the info, I was thinkn' about one but I guess the sound leads to heaviness of the foot
