Chrysler 300 - Dollar's main 4 door Luxury Vehicle
This car turned heads even in Hollywood!
We hired a luxury 4 door vehicle with Dollar for our 10 day trip to Los Angeles in February 2005. We were allocated a Chrysler 300 in a rich cream colour/color. If adorned with a ribbon it could have been a wedding car. It looks to me like a Bentley Turbo but I'm no a car expert - just a Mum!

This is a big car, as a family of 4 we fitted easily and all our luggage into the trunk/boot. There was acres of space in the back and big comfy seats (leather ones in the luxury car). We were told by the Dollar staff that it had a 5.7 L HEMI V8 engine, whatever it was it was big, powerful yet surprisingly quiet. Apparently it is the most powerful sedan in it's class. It could respond instantly if more power was required no delays at all.
This car seemed to drive itself and could hold it's own quite happily on the freeways of LA. I felt totally safe and secure in this vehicle, apparently it has four-wheel anti-lock brakes and as we went to LA in February which is one of the only 2 months it rains! As you would expect it is quite a thirsty car but we only had to fill up with petrol once in the 10 days and LA and the surrounding area is vast.
I'm only 5' 3" but was fine driving this big beautiful car. If I have one criticism it is that there is not as much leg room for the front passenger as you would think there should be given a vehicle of this caliber. My husband would have liked more gadgets in it but I think that is definitely a boy thing! For me it was an excellent car. It was a great price the same as a 4x4 which are very commonplace on the freeways.
So if you fancy something a little bit different, stylish yet practical then go for the luxury 4 door option – don't forget if it looks good in Hollywood it looks good everywhere!
