Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.
CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert
Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.
CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.
Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.
Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles
Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.
Second Hand — Not Second Best
Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.
But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.
CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories
CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.
Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.
We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
Some things get better with age—whiskey, denim, cheese, leather—and sometimes that includes cars. But the 2022 Chrysler 300 is one that's simply slipping into obscurity. If you're one of the shrinking number of buyers seeking a large four-door sedan, you'll find few options—even among them the 300 is relatively uncompetitive. The standard powertrain is a V-6 with and eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive; a gas-guzzling V-8 is optional and gives the 300 slightly more muscle-car appeal. The Chrysler's cabin is comfortable and spacious, but those seeking the luxury of a similarly sized luxury car will be left wanting.
What's New for 2022?
Chrysler's sedan soldiers on for another model year without any major changes. All 2022 models come standard with a new N95 cabin air filter and the Comfort Group package, which is available on the Touring L and 300S models and now includes a security alarm.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
We'd recommend the midrange Touring L model, which bundles plenty of luxury and convenience features at a reasonable price. It comes with the standard 3.6-liter V-6 and can be had with rear- or all-wheel drive. We'd also spring for the aforementioned Comfort Group package because we think large sedans should provide a certain level of plushness. If you want the V-8, you'll have to upgrade to the more expensive 300S, which adds a stiffer suspension and, thus, a rougher ride. Shoppers should also take note of the V-8's thirst for fuel.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
In the large-car segment, the Chrysler 300 is unusual for its rear-wheel-drive layout and its available Hemi V-8 engine with 363 horsepower. All-wheel drive is optional but only with the standard 292-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine. In our testing, a rear-wheel-drive V-6-powered 300S hustled to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds; that's slow for this class but still reasonably sprightly. A V-8-powered rear-driver netted a snappy 5.3-second result in the same test back in 2015. The 300 is not a bad-handling car for its size. The helm isn't the most talkative, but body roll is well controlled, and the chassis is willing to play—as long as you don't get overly aggressive. The stiffer suspension and 20-inch wheels on the 300S make that particular model ride a bit rough, which seems out of step with the 300's near-luxury mission. If you're in the market for something comfy, stick with the Touring or Touring L.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
With the 3.6-liter V-6 under its hood, the 300 falls just a bit short of its rivals when it comes to fuel economy. Other competitors—such as the Nissan Maxima—are simply more efficient. The 300 did match its EPA highway estimate of 30 mpg in our real-world testing, but the Volkswagen Arteon fared slightly better, besting the Chrysler by 1 mpg. Order up the Hemi 5.7-liter V-8 and this four-door is quite the gas consumer, averaging 19 mpg combined per the EPA's yardstick. For more information about the 300's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The 300's entry-level offering is the Touring. It comes with cloth seats and few amenities. The fancier Touring L and 300S models boast far more features, including power-adjustable front seats with heat and adjustable lumbar support, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather seats, and illuminated front and rear cupholders. Heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a power-adjustable steering wheel are optional on all but the base model. Chrysler utilizes soft-touch rubberized plastic with a leather-grain pattern to cover the dashboard and upper door panels of every 300. The texture feels nice but looks artificial. The interior design is aging, and not gracefully. The Kia Cadenza simply outclasses the 300 in this area. The 300, like just about every car in this segment, manages to fit six carry-on boxes inside the trunk. With the rear seats folded, it swallowed another 10. Those seats can be split in a 60/40 arrangement, but they don't fold completely flat.
Infotainment and Connectivity
We appreciate Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system for its ease of use, intuitive menu layout, and snappy performance. The 300's standard 8.4-inch touchscreen display will also show the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto interfaces. SiriusXM satellite radio is also offered with a one-year trial period, and in-dash navigation is optional.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Chrysler's driver-assistance gear, bundled in the SafetyTec Plus package, is available for all but the base model. For more information about the 300's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Available automated emergency braking
- Available adaptive cruise control
- Available lane-keeping assist
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
Chrysler's warranty coverage for the 300 is nothing special. Some rivals offer similar packages, but the standout winner here is the Kia Cadenza, with up to 10 years or 100,000 miles of coverage.
- Limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles
- No complimentary scheduled maintenance

So this is Leila. The demoness turned her gaze to the bound fragile girl lying at the feet of Sevikh. Despite the apparent fragility, the nymph had a very lush breasts and feminine hips.

The first half of the year I lived like a nightmare. In every knock on the door, in every phone call, I fancied HIS presence. But time passes, and nothing happens. Now I am almost not afraid.
