Car handles well, and seems to hold the road greatly.
I never feel like I"m going to go out of control.
The gas mileage isn't great considering it's such a small V6.
The airy cabin provides a lot of sunlight which can make the a/c work harder in the summer, but helps warm the car in the winter.
Plenty of headroom for 6+ footers, and the large bottom seat cushion provides good thigh support not found on most imports.
A lot of standard features make you feel like you're in the top of the line Chrysler model, and not the lesser equipped Dodge Stratus/Plymouth Breeze.
The engine wants to rev to make it's best power, but doesn't require everything it's got to pass people.

I got this car in 2004 (had 63 k miles on it) Nice Spacious car, had a good mitsubishi v6 engine, good power and loaded with good features (for 1998). Ran fine till 84 k mile. I had a motor belt replaced at 85 k (65 $) A leak in some engine part ( 200 $ ) Antifreeze leak at 90 k (200$) Fuel Pump replaced @ 103 k ( 500 $ ) Gaskets replaced @ 105 ( 200 $) So good car till say 90 k miles and then it starts showing its age. But performance has never gone down. Still peppy and has lot of power. Is a stable and reasonably reliable car.
LX model is dropped. A powered driver seat, a 2.5-liter V6 engine, a tilt wheel and power windows, locks, and mirrors are now standard equipment. The LXi also comes in five new colors and as with all other Chrysler products, depowered airbags are standard.
