I'll I've been seeing since the super bowl are the same TV commercials
for the "200" (formerly known as Sebring).
Where the hell is the new re-designed 300?
Anyone seeing any advertizing for it?
Does it even exist? Do any dealers have it?
Saw a commercial for the 300C on Fox News this morning but it may have
been a drop-in on satellite from the Canadian satellite provider.

"Imported from Detroit" theme just a little.
Have seen a new 300 commercial for a couple weeks now, some clothing
designer in NYC is driving it and it does continue the "Imported from

only the ES350, RX350/450h are made in Canada.
I don't know if any of these various 350/450 model are only built in
Canada (for the entire north-american market) or if some of these exact
same models are also built in Japan (and possibly exported to other
destinations in the US/Canada). I also don't know if any of the
Canadian-built 350/450 models are exported to destinations outside of
When you think about it, any 300's that are trailered or brough in by
rail from Ontario into the US will make their first entry into the US in
Detroit (or at least Chrysler could claim that their import paperwork
was handled in Detroit).
So the phrase "Imported from Detroit" could actually be technically
