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.

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.

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

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.
1996 Chrysler Cirrus. Today after driving downhill on a very steep mtn road for 30 minutes when I got to the bottom (with what I'm sure were very hot brakes) suddenly the brake pedal went to the floor...
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...
