2012 Chrysler 300 Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Chrysler 300 is a traditional, large American sedan. Long before the SUV and the Crossover roamed the American streets, cars like the Chrysler 300 were the staple of almost all American driveways. And while today the full sized sedan is no longer as popular as it once was, the Chrysler 300 represents everything that made (and makes) the traditional sedan such an all around choice for daily driving. It has plenty of room, it has a comfortable ride, and it will transport 5 people in a pinch. Check out this first drive review as Dave spends a week driving and testing the 2012 Chrysler 300.

Competitors: Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima, Ford Taurus, Chevrolet Impala, Buick Lacrosse, Ford Taurus SHO, BMW 5 Seires What I have to say about the 2012 Chrysler 300: Ever since I went to the Motor City (Detroit), I finally got some of the history and background of Chrysler and it makes me appreciate American Cars a little more. Why am I saying this? Well I was never really a big fan of Chrysler until I came back from the Motor City. I love this car so much now. Features like LED tailamps and LED Daytime Running Lights are Standard. Chrysler has done a magnificent job at making this car more luxurious than the previous generation. Features like Heated and Cooled Seats and Heated and Cooled Cupholders are nice little touches as well as innovative safety technologies such as Blind Spot Monitoring and Lane Departure Warning. Now to be honest the 300 is not just for one type of person, whether your looking for basic transportation, but want a little bling on your car and decent power and fuel economy with the 3.6 L V6 or you could get a fully decked out SRT8 model which has jawdropping peformance, but then the competitors change with that trim with cars like BMW 5 Series and Ford Taurus SHO. Alot of high class people also drive these cars. One thing that I like about the 300 is it's not that expensive either. If your looking for a little less bling and more of a muscle type car, you might want to go with it's cousin the Dodge Charger which features the same powertrains and some features, but offers way different styling that looks more Muscle type. Anyways it's a well rounded sedan for pretty much anybody whether you have a family to haul around or just looking for straight up Performance.
