$9,995

Vehicle Description

Chrysler was quick to catch on to the fact that their new 300 sedan was a hit with younger buyers, and in 2008, they rolled out this 300 DUB Edition. DUB, if you are unfamiliar, is both a slang term for 20-inch wheels and the name of a magazine celebrating car culture and big hoops, and the match was unlikely but really worked well.

The 300 was a game-changer for Chrysler and it put some swagger back in their step. Low, sleek, muscular, and able to back it up with plenty of firepower, it was everything an American sedan was supposed to be. This one remains mostly original and in excellent condition, showing gleaming charcoal gray paint and enough chrome to remind you that this one comes from Detroit, not Munich. Don't let the mileage scare you, though, because this car has obviously led an easy life and having been housed down south all its life, you know rust is a total non-issue. The 300 always looks best in dark colors, and the broad-shouldered look hunkers down on those big shiny wheels rather well. Up front there's a mesh grille that many feel looks like it should be on a Bentley, and a deep chin spoiler with built-in fog lamps helps make the car look even lower. There are a few signs of age and use, of course, but clearly someone felt this car was worthy of preservation, so while it was driven, it was also very well maintained.

Inside the 300 is a well-tailored suit designed for serious driving, starting with supportive black leather buckets that are in excellent condition. There are DUB logos stitched on the seat backs, but the rest is standard 300 fare, which means excellent yet stylish gauges, a long list of standard features, and plenty of room. The seats remain in very good shape, the carpets show only the most minor fading, and details like the headliner, door panels, and dash pad are excellent. The white-faced gauges and fat 4-spoke steering wheel speak to the 300's performance aspirations, but you'll note that the delicate needles on the gauge faces give them a very retro look. Almost everything was standard, including automatic climate control, power seats, windows, locks, and mirrors, a sunroof, cruise control, and a great-sounding AM/FM/CD/satellite/iPod stereo system with a big screen in the middle of the dash. The trunk is big enough for all your luggage on a road trip, even with the big subwoofer tucked into the corner.

Chrysler's mid-range 3.5 liter DOHC V6 provides plenty of performance in the DUB Edition while balancing it with reasonable fuel economy. Long since proven as one of those most reliable Chrysler powerplants in recent memory, this one runs great and has an energetic feeling that you'll pick up the first time you drive it. The engine bay is tidy and well-maintained and has not been modified at all, so OEM levels of reliability are still intact. The 5-speed automatic transmission was the only choice and it shifts crisply and mostly stays in the background, just as you'd want it. It's rear-wheel-drive, and that was a big deal when it hit the streets, and with a Mercedes E-Class independent suspension, it's a spirited handler, too. 4-wheel discs live behind those giant shiny wheels, which are wrapped in 245/45/20 Pirelli radials.

This is a lot of style for not a lot of cash, and you'll stand out in a subtle way with the DUB edition. Call today!
