Great car for value

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Cirrus LX 4dr Sedan

I am the third owner of this vehicle and it has been great from day one. No major problems at all. Great fuel economy, large trunk, and plenty of interior room. A/C still blows ice cold, all power accessories work, and engine/transmission are great. Car has close to 150000 miles on it now and shows no sign of slowing down soon. Loved this car so much I bought an 06 Stratus and have been equally pleased, but still drive the Cirrus for my everyday car and even on long trips.




Love it

I bought this car new and it is the best car I have ever owned! I love it. I had only minor problems except for rear brake lines bursting once. I also note the air conditioning is getting weak now. I guess it is getting pretty old and I hope my next car will be as good.




Luxury for very little

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 4dr Sedan

The leather interior feels luxurious as do the comfortable seats. Mine is black ext. tan int. and it looks great! I love how it looks ageless. It's 8 yrs old and still fits in with the new crowd. I enjoy having a V6 and would never consider getting anything but. I've had a good time with the car, except for the AC problems. In '03, I had to replace the whole unit for $1200, and now it's broken again. I have had electrical problems also.

It was my first time "NEW" car purchase. I do not regret the selection at all!




Enough to make me trust

Vehicle: 1996 Chrysler Cirrus LX 4dr Sedan

After owning a VW Dasher-fun to drive but mechanical disaster; Dodge (Mitsubishi) Colt- reliable, great mileage, but small, poor acceleration, I wanted bigger w/a little style & power. Cirrus served well w/6 cyl providing extra power, comfort, surprisingly roomy interior, + decent mileage (26/30). Few probs but all expensive: computer control module, then A/C compressor, then condensor, major brake job, engine mounts went a early at 90000, but little else for 7 yrs. Extended warranty (both dealer & aftermarket) worthwhile. -Pts for hard to reach battery in driver wheel well; +pts for battery lasting 5 yrs in AZ.
