I'm looking for a comfortable highway cruiser that still has a bit of style / swagger, with respectable power, and handling that isn't going to be too depressing. I keep reading that these two Chryslers are solid values. Some people reporting poor fit and finish on the interior, while others rave about it.
The Pentastar V6 has gotten favorable reviews for having a good balance of power and economy, especially with the 8-spd ZF transmission found in the 300 and Charger.
What else should I look at?
The Taurus looks good but the MyFord Touch seems to be a mess.
How about the Passat SE with 280HP VR6?
