One thing people ALWAYS forget, unless you have a real collector car your car is NOT a investment nor a asset , it is a liability with a finite life that can be cut short at any moment by another persons carelessness.
While one may feel secure with warranty and insurance we all are still using our cars up every mile we drive...

I say pick something that you like and can afford, then think about if you can afford it if it gets crushed tomorrow. Those with the newest cars have the farthest to fall.
At least get a used car, even at one year old it still has warranty, new car smell and most importantly, someone else took the biggest hit on deprecation.

And 'collector cars' don't make swell daily drivers.

$15k is NOT $250 a month. If you use your calculator, yes, $15k appears to be $250 a month. Add in interest, finance charges, delivery, etc, and your looking at over $300. This doesn't include gas and other miscellaneous "wear and tear" items. BTW, Crossfires require synthetic oil and hold 9 quarts.....

My fiancee bought a 2007 Ford Fusion for $20k back in well, 2007! And her note is $469 a month with $3000 down. She still owes about $6000 left on it. And it has 105k on it. I tried to get her to get a used Grand Am GT for $4500 cash with 90k on it, but her family wouldnt have her drive a ''used'' car because they believe they are more prone to fail. WRONG. Already IVE had to pay for brakes, rotors, headlights and taillight bulbs (at 20k miles) two front wheel bearings, a MAF sensor, and various other crap for the car. In the meantime, my Bonneville needed little to nothing, the Riviera went through a motor. And I paid $600 with installation for that. So in the end, shes stuck with a $500 a month bill almost (not including the $140 insurance) EVERY month, while I may change my oil, or this or that, worry free. So she sees me jump up and pay $2000 for a Riviera and wonders why I dont get a new car, but I can take a months carnote and fix everything wrong with it in one swoop.

You shouldve went for the SRT8! Those are the only ones that move.

lol, the only ones that move? are you daft bud? this hemi fuckin moves bro. anyways I love this car and it is such a step up from my riv. no offense to anyone on here, but its also much more practical for me. and i think a 5.3 0-60 is pretty damn good for a 4200 lb car. http://www.alltelmypics.net/harkm5771/jsps/blog and there is where there are a few pix of the car......ya they're shitty cell pix but thats all i got at this point

A source I found shows 5.6 secs to 60 mph for the 300C, which is pretty damn quick. It would finish just a tick behind my Riv in the 1/4 mile. Enjoy the new ride!

I recently made a list of cars I would consider the next time I am in the market.
The 300C is at the top of the list.

i luv 300's, magnums, and chargers practical ish goes out on them all the time. for example...outer tie rod ends (always on back order) the best part is that they normally crap out at about 20k miles. if you get by the tie rod end problem then you may not be so lucky with the rack and pinion...they leak. you may think that you have a trans leak....wrong they use trans fluid for the power steering. so you go head and bput those big 20+ wheels on there. another suspension component that goes out is called a tension strut. the rubber bushings split pretty good and makes the car squeak a lot when going over bumps. funny story so one came into my job i and i replaced both tension struts and it called for sumthin crazy like 3 hours to do both. i had them out and in 30 minutes. my boss told me to go to lucnh and come back before i pulled the car around.... hahahahahahahah!!!!!!!!

good you have a hemi so you wont have to worry about the problematic FAKE thermostat housing that leaks the good orange coolant. also with the v6 engines there is a pricey water pump that normally craps out at 50k miles, when that goes be ready to spend $600+ cause its driving by the timing chain.

as i said before i LOVE these cars....i see dollar signs everytime one comes into the shop at my job.

well good news is after 66000 miles there has been little to no work done on it, cuz nothing was needed. I even talked with the previous owner before i bought it. He was retired, and drove it sparingly.......i got lucky lol. only thing i had to replace was the tstat.....which was original so lol. I think im perfectly fine.

funny thing you mentioned that part about the trans fluid. I was getting my old Riv worked on by this guy who worked for Roush and he said that the Chargers, 300s, and Magnums used trans fluid for both, and even he couldnt figure out why they would engineer it like that, but he said they leaked as well and you didnt know whether it was the trans or power steering

You know, if you wanted to get creative, I saw an episode of Overhaulin where they swapped front ends on a 300 and a Magnum and it looked nice! Well on the Magnum I mean. I didnt see how the 300 looked with the Magnum front, but I imagine it would set it apart from any other ones you see on the street!

Chrysler actually produced 300C wagons in limited numbers, it was called the 300 Touring.
