Behind the Wheel: 2012 Chrysler 300 S

No longer the poor man’s Rolls, the 2012 Chrysler 300 S (yes, the one in all those “imported from Detroit” ads) is no longer the big bruiser of yore.

Applying the cool hand of luxury isn’t always the path to sucesss, but here we’d call it one cool flush. Is this the most refined car Chrysler has ever made? Yes. Is it the all-American luxury sedan we can’t help but love, despite a few flaws? Absolutely.
