Will never own again

Vehicle: 1995 Chrysler Cirrus

I bought this car on a whim, because I was pregnant, and the car had just gotten a new engine, so I figured it would run great. I was VERY wrong. I've put nothing but money in this car, and it is still very unreliable. It scares me to have my daughter in it, because it does what it wants when it wants, aka it dies all the time. my heater and the odometer do not work, I have to put a tie rod end in it, i've replaced numerous amounts of sensors. The speakers don't work well either. Also the computer is going out. This car has been nothing but a nightmare, and of course no one wants it, so I'm stuck with it. I personally will never own one again.

Pretty junk

I would love to tell you about my driving experience but the car is always broke down. I see why Chrysler is bankrupt. Their cars spend more time with the mechanic than the owner.

Turned me off chrysler forever

Vehicle: 1995 Chrysler Cirrus

AC works when it wants to, no problem can be found; horrible de-fogger; plastic around outside of windows shrunk and split then came off within a year after I bought the car; AC plastic control knobs cracked and came off; for a while when I stepped on the brakes the radio quit; front left sway bar joint needs replacing every couple of years since it can't be lubed; rear right break cyl. has broken twice; silver off of door strips by 1999, very poor acceleration. Overall a lousy car, and a good reason to avoid chrysler in the future. And they wonder why we don't buy American car brands.

1995 through 1999 model year Chrysler Cirrus and Dodge Stratus...

to the previous two generations of cars Stratus/Cirrus/Breeze and Stratus/Cirrus, the new midsize models look more Korean like what Hyundais used to (especially the Sebring) than what Hyundais do now...

a 1996 cirrus and not a problem yet!!!!...
