Default Need Advice: 2005-2010 300c or Touring?


I'm looking for a 2005 - 2010 300C or Touring.

I'm interested in hearing from owners who have opinions on these cars.

Most of the cars I'm seeing have 75,000 to 150,000 miles.

Assuming they've had good maintenance (that's assuming a lot!), then:
  • How long will an engine last in a 300C and/or a Touring?
  • How about the transmission?
  • Would you reccommend any specific tests, say an engine compression test?
  • Are there any other maintenance issues specific to the 300 to look for in cars with 75-150K?
  • Any other advice?
We're really looking forward to becoming owners of a reliable 300!

Thanks, in advance, for your help!

I just picked up a 2006 300 touring with 80,000 miles on it, very nice car, one owner and the car fax had all the service records, the guy had it maintained by the dealer so I could see all the service done. Made me feel better about what I was buying.

I just bought a 2006 300T with 180k miles it also came with all service records. im loving this car so far. only had it a few weeks. had 1 scare with car shutting off and headlight and dash lights going out. after inspecting things I found my positive cable was bad and changed it and it rides like a top. these cars are so fun to to drive and so many upgrade options out there for them its unreal.
