Chrysler 300 Lemon Odds and Nada Odds
Other sources of Chrysler 300 reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Chrysler 300s with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Chrysler 300s that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.
These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Chrysler 300 lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Chrysler 300 has been recently.

Chrysler 300 Lemon Odds and Nada Odds through December 31, 2012General NotesNote the sample sizes in the right column. For a precise Nada Odds, it'd be best to have 50+ cars. For Lemon Odds, 100+. In most cases the sample sizes are between 25 and 35, and differences of less than six points are probably not meaningful. This is especially a factor with the "Lemon Odds," where nearly all scores are low.
That said, the Lemon Odds figures are probably much lower than many people suspected, so we've posted them. Similarly, the Nada Odds are probably higher than many people suspected. Even with the least reliable cars in this results set your odds of no repairs would be better than one in three. Surprised? MethodologyThe samples include cars for which we have at least nine months of data in the past year. The "Nada-odds" are adjusted based on the average number of months of data per car. These stats are very close to what they'd be if we included only cars with a full year of data.
Only successfully completed repairs are currently included in the analysis. Recalls and problems fixed with just a reflash or warning light reset are not included.

What Our Members Are Saying about Brand Reputation and the Chrysler 300
|Brand Reputation of the Chrysler 300: Pros|
|2006||4dr Sedan 340-horsepower 5.7L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
|This is my first Chrysler. There has always been a reputation of being a big car for "older people". The 300C with the hemi makes us middle-aged people feel great about driving around town. As far as image, those people that love the style always look.|

|2008||4dr Sedan 340-horsepower 5.7L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
|Despite bad luck with their cars always had good luck with their dealers. Have been innovative and first to market with a lot of good products lately, new ownership, lifetime power warranty - hopefully they will turn it around.|
