2012 Chrysler 200 LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Wish I could afford to sue Chrysler for how off they are about the MPG. Have done regular maintenance on this vehicle over the 3 years I have owned it. No matter how easy I drive this vehicle I have yet to see overy 24 MPG. My average since owning the car is 21. This IS a 4 cylinder. Next, the acceleration is terrible. You press the pedal expecting it to go, wait 3-4 seconds of almost standstill then finally some movement. Not safe if you ask me when defensive driving is important. Braking has never been good. Any quick stop results in the entire vehicle shaking from its horrible anti lock. I have already been told that the brakes and rotors are good so again just terrible mechanics. There are many other things but my biggest pet peeve is the tricks Chrysler uses to force you back to the dealership for maintenance. For example, if you want to change the battery you must remove the front bumper, remove the headlight and then the battery. Even just changing the headlight bulb requires the same thing or removing the plastic in the wheel well. Ridiculous is putting it gently. Just look elsewhere at all costs. Buyer beware.

Review

Have a Chrysler 200 that was rented for me for a few months. Had it one week and already hate it. Transmission is annoying. Feels like something is wrong with car but apparently there isn't, was just told that's what the car does. They have a fleet and they all do the same thing, I was told. It makes it feel like I am constantly making small acceleration/deceleration changes but I am not. Very uncomfortable when driven more than a few miles. Rides is bad but can't tell if its the transmission or suspension. Layout of and type of controls is nothing short of goofy. The shift control is a knob right near all the radio knob controls, making it easy to reach for the wrong one. Plus counterintuitive controls so it is uncomfortable to use. Emergency Brake is electric. Seems entire car is dependent on a computer for all controls so, nothing manual. Hate to know what would happen if the car's decided to accelerate on its own. There would be no manual control to intervene. If you are six feet or taller your head will rub against the ceiling in the back seat. Does look nice though...

Review

Right now four of us who own a 2012 chrysler 200 are having to have a heater core put in as no heat on passenger side and does not defrost on passenger side have been advised that cost is 6-800! Sounds like a recall problem but mechanic says that is normal for a chrysler 200!

This has a Hyundai 2.4 Liter 4 cylinder Really good motor and a Hyundai 6 speed transmission. Run synthetic, do the maintenance and this car will go 400k
