I bought this car new in July 2006 and have had no major issues that were not covered by the warranty, I only have just over 36K original miles
and just replaced the tires and that was only because the tires had age cracks on them, the tread was still in good shape and probably could have gone another 36k but didn't want to take the chance. I Love this car.
I bought this car because when I was a kid my parents had one (1965-66) and since then I wanted one. I only wanted the Base model for I didn't want the leather seats or any of the other stuff I wouldn't want or use. I enjoy the safety features of air bags all around and the size to be able to survive an accident if necessary.
Make it compatable with all MP3 players not just the Apple.
I am the second owner. It had 40k miles on it when I bought my car. Now it has 112k , and only problem I had was the EGR valve around 85k miles....I had to get it replaced and the problem is fixed. Its not the best luxury car nor has the best performance. But you get what you pay for and it does the work. My friend thinks that it is better than BMW 335 xDrive, for the long highway trips..you go figure...If you take care of your car it will not fail or break ...IMHO American made cars are more reliable than the European cars...plus the money you spend at the mechanic/dealer is always less if you go for the American...be smart if you don't have a million...
Okay this was my fathers car. And it was such a piece of junk one day I was in the car on the highway and the steering wheel was vibrating and shaking. There were many issues with things that my father assumed were fine, but he traded it in for a Toyota Avalon. It handled like a turd and the interior was crap. But i have to admit it looked sharp in black and it rode smooth and had a quiet ride.

I bought this car new in 2006.
The body style was the main reason for my purchase.
I take very good care of my cars.
I serviced this car regularly with oil changes every 3-6,000 miles even though the owners manual say to do so every 7,500 miles.
The 2.7 engine blew at 89,000 miles and now I have to go buy a new car.
It won't be a chrysler!
Other problems I had with this car was the transmission.
It seems that is a standard for Chrysler.
