2016 Chrysler 200 Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 9A)


Review

Currently driving this car as a rental and day 1 I cant wait to get rid of it... Very noisy, transmission is horrible, its all over the place, ride is ok, Layout of controls are horrible.. hate the turn knob for transmission, what a joke and very easy to make a mistake, seats are pretty comfortable, breaking is horrible, but could just be the rental. I have a 2016 Kia Sorento and cant wait to get it back because it puts this chrysler to shame.

2016 Chrysler 200 Sedan C 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 9A)


Review

I rented this machine for a week while visiting wine country (Napa/Sonoma) and was so glad to be rid of it. (Note: be careful when renting a car that says something like "Toyota Camry or similar" - the "or similar" may be a Chrysler 200) The driver's seat took two days to put into a quasi-comfortable position. The grip to enable the driver to close the door was virtually unreachable, requiring you to nearly get out of the car to reach it. Worse, there seemed to be no way to turn off the radio, only mute it. This became problematic when I'd paired my phone to the entertainment system - the radio had to be on for me to hear my phone's GPS directions, but they were drowned out by whatever station the radio was on. And the radio (as well as the AC) came on as soon as I started the car, no matter how I tried to defeat it. The most incredible thing about this rolling disaster film was the transmission. It was beyond automatic; it was undecided. The car seemed to vacillate as to which gear it most preferred when going up a hill, shifting from low to another gear to another and back to low in a sort of random, capricious style similar to when our then-teenage daughters chose which lipstick to wear. Worst of all, the transmission is controlled by a knob on the center console. A knob! And right next to the transmission knob is another knob that controls the fan speed. It was quite easy to turn the fan up or down and instead turn the transmission knob. I'm confident the designer of the car is named "Sparky."

Review

OK, I'm 5'11" and a bit overweight. I almost broke my neck getting into the drivers seat of this car. I had to literally sit on the door sill in order to fit my head under the top of the door opening. Unbelievable! Hello Fiat-Chrysler, not everyone is 5 foot 8 inches and below 160 lbs. You are leaving out a lot of people with this design.

If you are looking for performance check out the AWD 6 200S. You won't be disappointed.

Review

Had just purchased this vehicle on July 15th 2016, and at time of purchase really didn't know much about it, but considering the great looks inside and out, a great warranty, and of all the bells/ whistles this vehicles came with, although a little more expensive than the Ford Fusion and other vehicles in its' class, its' cost was justified depending on what you were looking for in a new sedan. The exterior of vehicle is sporty and luxurious in appearance, great body fit, and a flawlessly applied metallic clear coat paint job, not the case of which I ran in to w/ other new vehicles that I've purchased in the past. Entering the vehicle can be a tight situation depending on your height, this is due to the 200 sedans low roof line which is low/ slopped, and further creating a space/ headroom problem once inside the vehicle for driver/ passengers six feet and taller. Once inside/ seated I found the design and quality of materials used to make up same was of higher quality vs. competitors, again it was a mix of sport/ luxury which complimented overall appearance of vehicle inside/ out. The seating was very comfortable and supportive, and making long drives less stressful and satisfying, and short drives fun. The dash/ console are cockpit like design, and a dial for gear selection inspired by jaguar has taken the place of the traditional hand shifter. Placement of instrumentation is good, all is within easy sight for driver. Lighting of same is a nice touch that is easy on the eyes/ enhances the driving experience when driving at night. What I am disappointed in are the speakers for stereo, I love music and these speakers are only adequate, I soon plan to replace them w/ aftermarket speakers of higher quality/ function. The sliding arm rest on nice sized floor console between driver/ passenger was a nice touch/ convenient, and since my limited lacked to presence of a cd player inside the console will be the right place for me to have one installed. Noise level inside passenger compartment while in operation is near zero other than the normal/ anticipated road noise of tires which is hard to muffle on any vehicle. Wind noise is absent, ride is super smooth, steering precise along w/ a good feel for the road. Yes, the interior of the Chrysler 200 is smaller/ cramped than Ford Fusion and others, but once inside it's a great driving experience, up-scaled and nice to be in depending on what you're looking for in a sedan as this sedan is not for everyone. Trunk space is large for a sedan of this size, and just getting back to one more exterior feature that I love is the projection headlights that automatically self adjust for night-time driving. Despite past complaints of the 2015 200 sedan of computer improperly processing commands to the 9 speed automatic transmission while in operation and creating an unpredictable driving experience, ie; lack of acceleration, hesitation of transmission to shift and adjust to normal driving conditions during city/ highway driving, for 2016 it appears Chrysler did correct this matter as from a standing stop from 0-50 mph my 4 cylinders performance is normal/ adequate, and while highway driving the 4 cylinder has more than enough power thanks to the 9-speed automatic, rpm's remain low, top speeds can be unthinkable, drive one and see. But in ending keep in mind this is not a muscle car and expectations may vary as to performance standard of others. To me the 4 cylinder engine is ample and responsive, it provides good performance for what it is intended. If you want more power in this sedan the V-6 comes highly recommended, the call is yours to make, drive one and see. Although new, I'll remain optimistic of my purchase and overall experience, this is one nice sports sedan that turns heads and meets my present expectations, I would recommend this vehicle to a friend.
