Used Car: 2010 Chrysler 300 Review
Reviewers liked the 2010 Chrysler 300’s bold exterior styling and available V8 engine, but other 2010 large cars offer better safety and reliability.
Reviewers said the 2010 Chrysler 300 is unmistakable on the road, thanks to its unique exterior styling, but they also thought the base 300 was underpowered. Chrysler offered several 300 trims with V8 power which rectifies that issue, but the 300 lagged behind the class in terms of reliability and safety.
Test drivers were surprised at how well the 300 handled, though most agreed that the 300 was best suited to comfortable highway driving. If you’re looking for all-wheel drive, the 300 is also a good choice, as it’s one of the few full-size sedans to offer it.
When it was new, reviewers found that the interior was spacious and comfortable, but thought that its quality lagged behind the competition. Reviewers noted the vast amount of rear-seat legroom and said that the front seats were comfortable. In terms of cargo space, the 300 is class-competitive with a large trunk and 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Standard equipment on the 300 includes cloth seats, a four-speaker audio system, an auxiliary jack and a power driver seat. Major available features include dual-zone climate control, leather seats with front heating, Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system with a 30-gigabyte hard drive, navigation, an eight-speaker Boston Acoustics stereo and a rear-seat entertainment system.
Other Cars to Consider
The Ford Taurus was completely redesigned in 2010, and reviewers liked its new look and interior features. The Taurus doesn’t have an available V8 like the 300, but reviewers liked its well-rounded performance. The Taurus also has a great reliability rating and excellent crash test scores, which should appeal to buyers who want a safe, reliable used car.
Thanks to its high crash test scores and refined interior, the 2010 Toyota Avalon should also be on your list. With the Avalon, you’ll get better safety and reliability scores, as well as a high-quality, comfortable interior. The Avalon also offers better fuel economy and more power than the base 300. A used Avalon can be expensive, so you may want to consider the 2009 Avalon as well to see if you can save money.
