I agree that the Impala's exterior has a better design, but the interior, particularly the cockpit, of the Chrysler 300 feels more spacious. The armrests, both in the center and the driver's door, are wider and more comfortable for longer drives. The dashboard monitor is bigger, too.

I've just never found GM interior design particularly attractive. GM infotainment is ugly (though the newest version looks a lot better), the fonts they use on the infotainment and buttons is dated, the Impala's steering wheel is even ugly. I think the 300 beats it in almost every way, inside and out.

And of course the Impala's fatal flaw, like the Maxima's, is that it's FWD only. I don't think you can credibly call a car premium or luxury or sporty if you can't even get RWD or AWD.

When does the PC status reset? I received PC through a CDP back in late 2017. Wondering if my status will be downgraded since I didn't rent as many to maintain the PC status.

Wondering if they will roll the roster and weed out those like yourselves. Or you may have stumbled into a rip in the time-space-status continuum and are good to go for a long time!

Please update if you're downgraded. You might be able to status match back to PC with another Elite status you hold in another program. Cursory google search will give you the details

Great question! If you rented at least a mid-size car you can take any car from the Presidents Circle area (or any available car for that matter). Hereís to hoping you get something sharp with heated seats.

Don't forget that Hertz will soon start rolling out CLEAR verification for rentals - should speed things up. Only available in ATL currently. Keep an eye for that - pun intended 😉

Thanks for the info. Worked well at IAH today. Brand new GMC Terrain.

DFW

Reserved: Intermediate

Got: 2019 Chrysler 300S with ~1200 miles on it.

It was parked next to the "Premiums" but still on the PC side of the divider and didn't have the keys in it. I asked the agent who was working the lot about it and he located the keys in the office for me.

It''s a nice car in a hideous shade of battleship grey. Why Chrysler would paint anything this color is beyond me.

If its the color I am thinking of with the black wheels I find it strangely attractive in a different way.

My Memphis experience:

https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/30642996-post3.html

I picked up a car today. I had reserved a full-size sedan.

No pre-arrival confirmation of your car. Instead, you get an email saying pick whatever you want from the President's Circle section, which is one long row of cars on each side. It's about a 15-minute walking from the gates, not including any time at baggage claim. The walk is partially outdoors.

Today the President's Circle rows had just about everything. A couple of Dodge trucks, a GMC Acadia, a half-dozen 2019 Chrysler 300 S sedans, a couple of Chevrolet Malibus, some vans and the like. I even spotted two Chevrolet Tahoes, one of which I was tempted to get. There were three Infiniti sedans in the premium, upgrade section.

In the end, I went with a black 300 S with seemingly all the options except a sunroof and navigation. Only 2,300 miles on it.

No water given at the exit gate.
