Interesting but the data grid below the article doesn't really support the article... I see Cadillac and Lincoln as two of the highest % for trade-in and those are not foreign cars.

By brand Cadillac and Nissan are the 2 biggest. By model the DeVille and the Maxima are the 2 largest models. But:

“This doesn’t mean that 80 percent of our customers will come from (luxury and foreign) brands, but it’s amazing the number of people who are leaving their BMWs, Cadillacs — you name it — to buy a 300.”

That happens with any car. I bet more people move up from Chrysler to Cadillac then move down from Cadillac to Chrysler. Those number are very small. Chrsler will have to show good quality and reliability for years to be considered my most people. Notice that the biggest model are the town car and Deville(old people). The total trade-in of other brands is still only about 20%. 80% are still former Chrysler buyers. Nissan buyers are usually performance buyers and a few may like the Hemi. It will be interesting if they can keep those buyers or if they go back to the permium brands next lease/purchase.

Comments like this have to end:

"I can see why some of these people are complaing about their chrysler products, I have a 2004 chrysler 300m, which was built in Canada, and have it as a lemon under the lemon law, because it has been to two dealers six times and they cannot correct the problem I am having with it."

"I love the "concept" of this car, especially the hemi but I would never buy it because I have never owned a reliable American car. I am 60 and have owned many new cars, American and foreign. American cars are just one big headache. "

"The Chrysler 300 will be cool when they figure out how to keep the parts from falling off like they do on all the other Chrysler junk.Also Chrysler products are no more American than a Honda or Toyota made here in the good old USA.The profits if there are any leave the country. So stop the bullcrap about Chrysler being an American company and one of the big three.It isn't unless making lousy products counts. "

"LOL....The love affair that people are having with the new Chrysler 300/C won't last long once they start having problems with the car and have to deal with those "award-winning 5-STAR" dealers or worse yet, the "factory reps"!
I feel sorry for the people that are already having problems with the car going right, not starting on the first try and the clunking transmission. Some people are already in the buy-back stage with DC! "

Got a call from my brother-in-law yesterday afternoon. He was on a business trip and his rental was a new 300 (with the Hemi). He sounded like a kid he was so excited about the car and said he would probably be trading his Maxima in for one. It probably did not hurt that he had just raced a Mustang and thrashed it off the line!

Hah, I had one on order, but my dealer screwed it up. Right now, I'm waiting for maybe AWD or the SRT-8,or even just a RWD C with the neat upcoming options.

I believe Anthony plans on buying one in the future as well.

First time I drove a C I felt like a kid again too

I just find it funny that the owner of the board and one of the moderators (or maybe all) don't even own the cars yet run around trying to tell everyone how great they are... just doesn't make sense. So the dealer screwed up big deal there are plenty of dealers go find another one.

I am sure you could buy one off the lot now... Randolph Chrysler has a few of them out front right now and I saw a few at South Shore Chrysler the other day.

Well, you're right, non of the staff (admins or mods) of DodgeMagnum.net/Chrysler300C.net own a LX car, yet...


However, I have driven two 300C's, a 300, a Magnum SXT, and a Magnum RT, and I will back up my claims that these are the best American bulit cars right now, and by far the best product that the Chrysler Group has ever created. Ask any of the owners at our board, they all love their cars, if you don't believe me, go look for yourself.
