4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Subtle, understated, elegant.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They love it, I think

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, but I intend keeping this for many years. I tend to keep cars for long periods.

What are you likely to buy next?
I quite like the Chrysler 300C. It's just a bit different and slightly offbeat.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
January 2008

Yes the car had a very low mileage and was spot on, there were cheaper cars but they probably would have cost in the long run

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

Didn't buy it from a dealer, although the seller worked as a motor salesman and it was his personal car.He was known to me before I purchased the car

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's automatic, arguably the transmission is old hat now, but it exudes old school charm and quality. Quite solid for a convertible. I suspect it doesn't handle as well as the more solid coupe, but thats what happens when you remove the roof.

What's it like to park?
Easy, no real problem.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?

What's most practical about your car?
good hood, roomy interior, reasonable boot, good spec inc aircon

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Total closure (aftermarket) some feel this is a posers delght, but from my point of view I can just press the remote and walk away whilst the roof raises and the widows close, I don't have to sit in the car whilst the theatre plays!
