Commentary by Bob Aldons - Northstar Chrysler
It's been interesting reading the reviews by various automotive journalists so far since they were exposed to the 300 at Phillip Island last week.
There's the "I drive a small car and this is an environmental vandal" type journo's and then there's the "At last someone's given me a car to drive that suits my personality" type. I think Ewan Kennedy falls into the latter. His review is based on someone who likes to drive a larger car - fast.
I'll let Ewan tell you all about the 300 in this review. If you want to experience 300 in the flesh, call into Northstar Chrysler at 320 Anzac Avenue Kippa-Ring on the Redcliffe Peninsula. We're only 15 minutes or so from Brisbane Airport and a leisurely drive down the highway from Noosa, Bundaberg, Maryborough, and a short trip from Nambour, Caloundra, Mooloolaba and Bribie Island. We also get a lot of our customers as FIDO - that's not a dog by the way, that's fly in drive out. With cheap airfares our customers come in from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Mt Isa and even Sydney, Melbourne and as far away as Perth.
We'll happily arrange a drive home registration and you know the best thing about this? The drive home gives you just the best running in you'll ever get. New engines love a long drive to bed everything in and you'll get the best economy you've ever experienced.

New 300 - enough said.
A raft of safety features has already earned the Chrysler 300 the top rating from the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Ewan Kennedy road tests and reviews the new 2012 Chrysler 300 with specs, fuel economy and verdict.
A new home and a new family waiting to move in – that’s what’s on the agenda for the Fiat Chrysler Group in Australia right now with the new, almost-finished HQ at Port Melbourne being the scene recently for the launch of the company’s latest 300 range of large sedans.
Along with the new 300s come the first eight-speed automatic transmission in a large car costing less than $70,000, a choice of V6 petrol or diesel power, or V8 petrol, a dynamic suspension, more than 60 advanced safety and security features, carbon fibre and wood grain finishes and Napa leather upholstery.
Kicking off the Chryslers is the 300 Limited, then comes the 300C, the 300C Luxury and the range-topping SRT8. Prices start at $43,000 for the petrol Limited, the diesel adds $5000, and top out at $66,000 for the Hemi V8 SRT8.
Saad Chehab, Head, Chrysler Brand - Chrysler Group LLC, says: “The 2012 Chrysler 300 is built on the idea that luxury feels better earned - that those who worked hard to achieve their place in the world should demand as much as is demanded of them.” That just about sums it up....read more
