Should I buy this used car?
I am in the market for a used car, and I thought I
found the perfect one. It's a 2006 Chrysler 300, in
near perfect condition. Everything was beautiful,
smooth, it drove nice and ran quiet with no leakage
or frame damage apparent. I pulled it back into the
lot and as I turned on the turn signal I noticed
something was wrong. Turns out the front, left turn
signal light wasn't working. Do you think I should
still purchase the vehicle? It only has 73,800 miles.
Chrysler 300's are high-maintenance. That said, mention the turn signal to the owners and let them fix it. Then if you still want it, go for it. Just be sure it's fixed BEFORE you sign anything. If they "promise" to fix it after you buy it, then it's a sucker deal.
Not the best choice in a used car.
Not in my favorite top 50 either.
I wouldn't do it. Not an 11 year old Chrysler.
Like any vehicle, especially older ones buying it used would involve ensuring the vehicle has been properly maintained and serviced at regular intervals. My suggestion when buying a used vehicle is always have a reliable mechanic give it the once over and ensure the vehicle is sound. check blue book pricing to ensure you are not over paying for it and do some research on the model of the vehicle. As to the Chrysler 300C, I own one, yes the maintenance and upkeep is expensive but considering the vehicles original purchase price was 65,000 on average for the hemi version that is to be expected my 300C is now 12 years old and I regularly maintain it and have had to replace brakes, rotors, struts, shocks, tie rods, and even the cross over pipe to the dual exhaust but in all honestly wouldn't you be doing that to any vehicle that age...I love my car and would buy another one if I found one in good condition that was well maintained with a solid body.
A new loaded Chrysler 300 would not cost $65,000 USD even if the trunk was full of money, Angel. Let's get real here.
I am from Canada, car pricing has a wide margin in comparison to USA. My 2006 was fully loaded with every option available in the production year including the hemi, 18 inch wheels, police braking package, exotic wood trims, full leather seating package etc etc
Just checked the Chrysler Canada site and I am correct the base price of a 2018 300C is 50,000.00 in Canada... and again that is the base price.
Oh, it's Canaduh, that explains it.
