2011 Chrysler 200 Touring 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I just bought a used 2011 200 just over a week ago. So far i like it it quite a bit. Im coming from an S10 so im not used to driving a car. So far i really like it. The interior is vastly improved over the old Sebring. I only have the 2.4lt but at least it has the six speed auto. While it wont win any drag races its perfectly adequate most people. The exterior is really nice also.
2011 Chrysler 200 Touring 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
After reading some of these reviews, I have to say I must have a properly assembled 200 convertible.
I purchased the 2011 new, drove it to the mid-west and back to California and it performed beautifully.
Loved the comfort level with the seating.
I still have it, have done the proper services and it has had absolutely no issues what-so-ever.
The interior is actually quieter than my previous convertible.
Almost 40,000 miles later, it still feels like a new car.
Oh, it is a 4-cylinder, so great gas mileage. It has been reliable, comfortable seating/roomy, Good trunk space, and interior buttons easily assessable (on steering wheel AND on front console.
Comfortable seating, ambient lighting, UConnect phone, interior buttons extremely assessable (most functions can be performed by a button on the steering wheel:
Radio station scan, volume controls, phone, other vehicle info from the menu button (i.e. tire guage, directional/compass, miles left to empty, etc.), sliding center armrest for convenience, roomy trunk and interior, Steering wheel size, and love the retro dash clock.
This car came to me with my new bride. She bought it new and it had 3,500 miles on it when we met. It now has about 30,000. No real problems. The breaks squeak when backing up, plenty of life left on em. We're fixing to replace the tires, just worn out. Mechanically sound, very reliable. The only thing I hate, the chrome around the clock is a wicket reflector at certain times of the day. I have to throw a shirt over it. BLINDING!
Good gas mileage 30 on the hwy. Wish it had a larger gas tank.
Get rid of the chrome in and around the dash! Put a larger tank in. Sunroof.
2011 Chrysler 200 Touring 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
In December of 2012 I purchased the 200 Chrysler 4dr V6. At about 3400 miles on odometer - it began with engine light of and on (have photo) but dealer can not find issue nor reproduce, along with a thump/jolt when shifting gears, when driving between 10 - 40 mph. I have been to the dealer and had Chrysler representative ride along and the thump occured on 3 occations within 15 min test drive. Chrysler rep stated "this is a normal experience with Chrysler auto's" Dealer but Mopar additive in transmission to "help the gears shif smoother" it did for short while and then the thump started again. Now at about 9000 miles on the auto and a week in the shop for diagnostics, dealer offers a trade i
U-Connect, auto-start, room
REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION, the transmission thumps as shifting gears at random times, dealer denies after test diagnostic drive with dealer and chrysler staff. dealer not able to honor trade-out to other auto to resove this issue - started at 3400 miles on odometer, very disappointed in CHRYSLER AND WILL NEVER EVER BUY FROM THEM AGAIN NOR THE DEALER PLANET......
2011 Chrysler 200 Limited 2dr Convertible (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Bought this car in November of 2011 - white S convertible with V6-drove it about 13K miles.
In response to other reviews:
-Headlight distance is fine high or low beam
-Handling (except torque steer) is great
-Hard to soft accelerate from start
-Convertible top itself worked well
-Gas mileage was only 17 in town and 28 highway at best
-Torque steer is HORRIBLE
-Windshield visibility limited due to heavy bracing on header and sides
-Convertible top operation good
-Transmission started 'bucking' at 2,800 miles - never fixed on 4 tries - know 2 others personally with this problem - had to file lemon law on them and make them rebuy this car
-handling (except torque steer which was horrible under strong acceleration), almost no body roll
convertible top worked well (but drivers window wouldn't go up all the way sometimes)
-I thought the looks/styling was better in person (on Chrysler site pictures made it look old and fuddy duddy)
-included removable mesh 'wind break' though it does not stay in place well, when installed does a nice job of removing wind buffet
Transmission was horrible!!! - they replaced the battery (yup, even though it would raise and lower the top without the engine running), the power train control module, the carburator throttle body, power train throttle valve, and finally - dielectric grease on all wiring harness connections - that was their final (and 4th failed attempt) to fix transmission bucking at various speeds.
Also the radio, left channel, went bad, some soft touch switches on the steering wheel and finally sticking in 5th gear which they never even tried to fix.
I know 2 others personally with transmission problems.
Do not buy this car - you were fairly warned!
They haven't fixed this issue.
