2023 300 Key Safety Features

The Chrysler 300 has really fallen behind the pack in terms of safety features. As standard, none of the trims are equipped with the driver-assist technologies expected of a modern sedan. On the base Touring, you get more basic safety gear like a rearview camera, electronic stability control, brake assist, tire-pressure monitoring, rain brake support, all-speed traction control, and ready-alert braking. The airbag count includes front multi-stage airbags, front-side airbags, side-curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag, totaling seven. On the top trims, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection, and front/rear parking sensors are added. Optional on the S trims but standard on the 300C are forward-collision alert, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, rain-sensing wipers, and adaptive cruise control with stop. It would have been nice to see features like a head-up display and a surround-view camera being offered.

2023 300 Reliability

J.D. Power's latest score of 79 out of 100 overall for the Chrysler 300 isn't as high as rivals like the Toyota Avalon but its quality and reliability score of 92 is excellent. However, two recalls were issued last year, both of which were for an inoperative TPMS sensor, which isn't as severe as some other recalls we've seen.

An unremarkable limited warranty covers the Chrysler 300 for three years/36,000 miles, depending on which comes first. The powertrain warranty is a bit better, extending for five years/60,000 miles. Roadside assistance is offered for five years/60,000 miles.
