Refund wanted on 300C
You won't get your money back, at least not in the short term and not without a huge fight. Start by documenting all the visits to the dealer, what the problems were, and what work was done to fix them. Once you've done that talk to the dealer, show them the history of the car and ask them to fix it. If they will not co-operate go higher to Chrysler head office and talk to the customer assistance people. If that fails contact the company's CEO, Pat Dougherty, directly. If you don't receive any satisfaction for doing all of that enlist the help of a solicitor to send Chrysler a letter setting out your problems.
Sedan options after Commodore?
I've just been driving the latest Chrysler 300C and it's much improved and definitely continuing beyond Commodore and Falcon. It's not as good as the VFII, which you should choose next, but would work for you once Holden becomes an import-only brand.
Holden Commodore: Chrysler 300 vs Ford Falcon XR8
The Commodore is more refined and a better drive than the Chrysler but don't forget the excellent Falcon XR8. It's now effectively a GT and, apart from the high seating position, has very few flaws at a great price.
Chrysler SRT V8 headlight issue stalemate
The headlight issue has reached a stalemate. You say it's a problem, Chrysler says no. If you wanted to take it further you could consult a licensed Vicroads engineer and get an independent opinion. You can get a list of the engineers from Vicroads. As for the sat-nav voice recognition issue, keep on their case.
Chrysler 300C SRT8 headlight fogging
The photo you sent us shows heavy fogging in a part of the lens, which is unusual. We don't hear of headlights fogging, and having to wait 20 minutes before it clears seems excessive. I would urge you to persist with the dealer, and Chrysler, until you get a satisfactory response/solution.
Chrysler 300 fuel consumption
You can run it on the cheaper 91-octane without any deleterious effects, but to get the best out of it you need to run it on the higher 95-octane premium as the dealer has recommended.
