How on earth did this get past quality control?
Quality control issues with new cars are nothing new. Just ask early adopters of the C8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray who reported problems with the dashboard stitching. But sometimes manufacturers accidentally ship cars with incorrect parts. Cadillac, for example, shipped several CT4 models with the wrong badge last year - but this is a relatively minor issue compared to what happened to this Chrysler 300.
A user on Reddit was browsing for used Chrysler 300 deals when they discovered a sales listing posted by the Jacksonville Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealer for a very unusual 2020 Chrysler 300 Touring.
At first glance, this looks like a regular Chrysler 300. But a closer inspection reveals the car somehow left the factory with some serious quality control issues. The car is advertised with the optional Chrome Appearance Package, but someone at the factory forgot to apply the chrome trim to the top of the front passenger-side door.
If that wasn't already bad enough, the headlights don't match at all. The left headlight has a darkened bezel, so it appears the car has a mix of the Chrome Appearance Package and the Sport Appearance Package that replaces the chrome elements with black trim.
Frankly, it's baffling that nobody noticed these glaring issues before the car left the factory. "I've been browsing Chrysler 300s (don't judge) lately as you can get some crazy deals right now," the user wrote on Reddit. "But this one stopped me in my tracks. I've never seen anything like this."
If you fancy owning a one-off Chrysler 300 with unique exterior trim, the car is still listed for sale by the dealer at the time of writing for $28,398. For 2021, the Chrysler 300 starts at $30,445 and is only sold in two trims: Touring and 300S. The former is available with either FWD or AWD, while the 300S is only available with RWD.
