Chrysler 300 is Love at First Sight



Recently, I was washing my aged white big sedan when my teenage grandson walked up and said, "How is that old folks' car doing?"  It was a bit of a jolt to be identified with a type of car, even if I am a senior citizen. Then I said to myself, "self, this piece of iron is a little outdated!"  It has been identified as an old police car, a Mafia vehicle that has enough trunk pace for three adults and a gas guzzler.  So, with the help of my grandson we researched some 2015 cars that are good for the senior citizen crowd. We kicked some tires on mid-sized to larger mini vans.  Nothing stuck out until we arrived at Greenville Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM and took a test drive in a new 2015 Chrysler 300.

Like when I met my wife, it was love at first sight for this geriatric. Gone from this large road cruiser was the image of a stodgy, dated or otherwise uncool vehicle. The Chrysler 300 not only has my big trunk back, but offers push button entry/ignition, very comfortable power heated seats and large, legible gauges. This is so important for seniors like me. I also thought that I would have to give up some horsepower and "zip and zoom" in the acceleration category, but found out that this is not the case with the 300's 3.6-liter V6 with its smooth eight speed automatic transmission.  I thought four speeds was ok with the old white car, but I didn’t know what I was missing when I took the test drive for the first time.

The ride in the 300 is even more comfortable than we imagined and we thought we were spoiled with the ride in the old cruiser. It is so quiet! Of course my grandson jokingly said I couldn't tell anyway with my hearing. Anyway, I love the rear wheel drive system which is a great American tradition. Inside, the Chrysler 300 has an excellent U-connect 8.4 inch touch screen system that is easy to learn. I didn't even ask my grandson for assistance. We added several options such as safety blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, front and rear parking sensors and adaptive cruise control. Have the guys and gals at Greenville Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM tell you about that feature as it is something to behold.

If you are looking for another full-sized rear-wheel drive American sedan, don't look any further and get on down to Greenville Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM and take the 300 for a spin or you can call them at 903-454-0283 today!  By the way, look at the 300S as it has a lot of extras even the most discerning car enthusiast will enjoy.
