2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible Touring 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I have owned my 200 for 4 years and LOVE LOVE LOVE her. Recently I was involved in a 3 car accident where an aggressive driver hit another vehicle head on and spun. His vehicle spun right into the front driver side of my baby. She stopped him dead in his tracks and threw out a pillow for my upper body to rest into. When all is said and done, my baby will be totaled but when I see the pictures of what she took at 60 miles per hour on a surface street I am amazed I walked away with just minor bruising. Chrysler made a vehicle that not only is sophisticated looking, fun to drive, but can save your life. They have built a very sturdy reliable vehicle. I would buy one for my mom, my child and myself any day of the week. I AM IMPRESSED!!!!

2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible S 2dr Convertible (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Purchased it with only 2800 miles on it and it was three years old. I average about six hundred miles a week and the mileage averages 26 to 27, city and highway. 29.9 highway only. Brakes have squeaked in reverse since I've owned it. Torque steer is really bad, you kick it you had better have a grip on the steering wheel. I've only had one warranty issue, the paint on the aluminum hood is bubbling. Dealer was great Chrysler is going to replace and paint a new hood for it. It's a blast to drive and is way more comfortable than the new ones, I've rented a couple of them for work and have issue getting in and out of them without bumping my head. The biggest thing to get used to is the visibility from it being a rag top. The windshield sits a bit too low. But so far I'm happy with it.

Review

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.
Nothing.
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.


Best Features

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.

2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible Limited 2dr Convertible (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

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


Best Features

-seat comfort -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


Worst Features

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.

Review

Let me begin by saying this is my wife's car and she is mostly happy it. However, she is not a car person. This is a car for old folks; there is nothing young, exciting or sexy about this short, stubby looking, boring car. It has a dead spot in the accelerator and the car doesn't move until you've pressed pedal down over an inch; dealer says that's normal. It had a water leak where the driver's door glass meets the "A" pillar; took 3 tries to repair it. Handling at speed is almost dangerous with lots of torque steer and no road feedback through the electric power steering. Fuel economy is poor (17 MPG combined). Trunk lid is very heavy due to convertible top mechanism that's attached to it.


Best Features

We bought this car because it was the only 4 passenger convertible with front wheel drive in its price range. Head rests are very comfortable (Mustang could learn a lesson from that).


Worst Features

Restyle this car so it is attractive, youthful and exciting. Go back to a conventional top that folds into a well behind the rear seat. That will reduce the height of the car as well as the price, as there won't be all that mechanism that opens and closes the deck lid to allow the top to store there. Drop the hard top option; it's pricey, adds weight to the car and reduces performance and fuel economy. Fix the suspension to reduce torque steer, enhance road feedback through steering wheel. Front seat bottom cushion is too thin; the seat heater can be felt through the cushion. due to wedge shape of the body, vision through the back window is limited. Fit and finish is poor.
