I’m afraid of the 300 being that way, so I’m giving more thought to jumping-ship for a leased premium-branded car. Lease it 3 years, buy it out after— A Lexus or Mercedes-Benz or something quiet and effortless like that. The Dart requires too much aggression and I’m just not into its bad attitude. A lease (on anything- a 300, perhaps) would give me time to assess the rattle situation before I was into the car too deeply. I want the 300 so badly. It’s what I consider my ‘terminal’ vehicle. The one you just keep until you die— or if you live long enough.. buy another. But I’m 37, and no car can last that long. Yours and others’ stories of rattly 300s don’t build confidence or interest in the product for me since I’ll be buying the next car just because I’m tired of driving a loud rattletrap. Maybe poor Chrysler’s just run out of steps for me to take after the 3 I’ve had. A lateral move within Chrysler just isn’t going to cut it with quality this low. Is the Grand Cherokee built better than a 300?
