2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible Touring 2dr Convertible (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
I bought a leftover 2013 Touring convertible with the 3.6-litre engine in February 2015 for a great price. I only have 2000 miles on it, so I can't comment on reliability. The powertrain is a gem - the Pentastar V6 is smooth and powerful and emits a nice thrum when accelerating, and the 6-speed transmission eagerly serves up downshifts. Fuel economy is so-so - 16 MPG around town and 29-30 MPG on a trip. The interior is impressively quiet with the soft top up - as quiet as many conventional sedans I've driven. My only complaint is the front seating - the lumbar bulge is much too big and much too high, which means I have to recline the seat, and the leg room is a bit skimpy for tall drivers.
Sexy styling. Attractive interior. Large trunk (for a convertible). Quiet with the top up. Smooth and powerful V6. Usable back seat. Practical as an only car.
Fuel economy could be better, especially around town. Front seat backs need a redesign - I have to recline the seat quite a bit to avoid a backache. A little more reach to the pedals would be nice, and it would be nice if the telescoping steering wheel extended further back. Because much of the convertible top mechanism is in the trunk lid that lid is very heavy to open.
2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible S 2dr Convertible (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Purchased 2013 Chysler 200 convertible from Mrytle Beach Chyrsler Jeep. With purchase price and taxes, etc. $35000. 6 weeks later, needed SUV for business. Went back to Myrtle Beach Chysler Jeep. They offered me $24000 for the car I bought frm them. They offered 24! Took car to Totota. The car is less than 6 months old, low miles and Toyota offered $14,000. The car is worth NOTHING. Chrysler is charging way too much for this car. I called Myrtle Beach Chyrsler Jeep and they offered $17,000 only because they sold me the car. No one wants this car, including Chrysler. No navigation, no USB for iPod. Horrible on gas. Just all around bad purchase. Worse case of buyers remorse ever.
Lower price. Not worth the thousands charging for the car, especially if the car is purchased for 35000 dollars and only worth 14000 less than six mths later. Insulting. Feels like I was robbed.
