Default Well, I got an American car

I sold my D3 last year and I dont think I will be getting another one since they are becoming old. Kinda getting used to the looks of the D4, so that might be a possible option in the future.

I had a rented 300 for a couple of days and that car left me very impressed. I never thought it drives that good based on it's looks. 3.6 with 300hp has plenty of power for everyday driving and 30mpg on freeway. Interior is nice and that 8.4 touchscreen headunit is just fantastic with all the right features built in.

Since my wife's grandma is still alive and she still has Chrysler employee discount I decided to check out the prices. So here the best thing. I leased 2014 300s with Nav for $250 per month with 0 down for 27 months!!! Thats like a price of leasing an Accord. I just think its an awesome deal and I wanted to share in case somebody is looking for something different.

I know bunch of guys here cant stand American cars and I actually could not stand them either (besides Jeeps). But this Chrysler is a whole new animal. It really feels like an European sedan with it's 8 speed tranny and it's driving habits.

for $250/month with 0 down, I would lease one too if I didn't have my D3. It's cheaper than Honda Accord. I think they look nice, but here in Northern CA, not many I've seen driven around.

Congrats,

Louis

$250/mo is about my current fuel bill on my v10. I still like the new Lincoln MK V but I am a Chevy guy at heart. Good luck with your new ride.

Thanks. I have not even checked since I had a specific model in my mind

I agree, when I visit states other than MI and OH, it seems like only 10% of people are driving domestic cars.

Oh boy, D3 S8 was and always will be one of my favorite cars, same as E39 M5. I dont know if I will ever own it though...

For some reason I am not a big fan of SRT models, plus that car loaded costs over 50k even with discount (its only 12% off msrp), so lease payments would be the same as buying a nice used D4 (which I would rather do). Hopefully soon
