2009 Chrysler 300 LX (Common+)
The 2009 Chrysler 300 sedan has succeeded where many of its domestic rivals have not. While it\'s true that Americans have flocked to the 300 chiefly because of its bold styling, the 300 provides a roomy interior, impressive ride and handling, the availability of the well-known HEMI V8 engine and the option of all-wheel drive. The 300 benefited greatly from the now-defunct merger between Mercedes-Benz and Chrysler by receiving a number of German-engineered components, including its rear suspension and five-speed automatic transmission. One might think with so much premium content added to the mix that the 300\'s price tag would also surge, but V6 models start around $25,000. Thanks to the 300\'s popularity among the tuner crowd, there are plenty of aftermarket parts, allowing owners to customize their cars to their hearts\' content.
