Consumer Reports Recommends the Chrysler 300 as Does the NHTSA
Consumer Reports names the Chrysler 300 on their list of recommended vehicles due to the addition of new software that improves the vehicle’s safety. The software is known as AutoPark and it helps with a couple major safety situations.
The first safety situation is when the driver tries to leave the vehicle when it is not in park. With the new software, the vehicle detects when the driver tries to leave and it can automatically change the transmission to park. The second situation the software helps with is if the driver tries to shut the engine off when the vehicle isn’t in park. When this situation occurs the transmission shifts to park and goes into accessory mode for 30 minutes which allows the radio to work as if the car was on.
This new software is just an addition to the many other Chrysler 300 safety features that come standard with the vehicle. Check out some of the other notable (and standard) features below:
- Speed control
- Remote proximity keyless entry
- Ready alert braking
- Rain support brakes
- A rear-view backup camera
- Hill start assist
… and the list goes on and on! No wonder the Chrysler 300 has an impressive four-star safety rating from the NHTSA.
