Solid Car Until 150k
By Tim Lindfelt on
1998 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 4dr Sedan
Comfortable car. Feels heavy and bulky on turns, but overall nice drive. DO NOT use dealership for maintenance - not trustworthy. Needed quite a few small repairs (keep in mind i drove it heavily 25k per year): new battery, brakes wear somewhat quickly ignition cylinder replaced, then broke key lock in steering column and had to replace entire column, can move shifter with car off, etc. That said no MAJOR drivetrain repairs, so thats good...until the dreaded 150k...Began to stall and misfire. Had leaky valve cover gasket. Replaced spark plugs, ignition wire, cover gasket - $650. Runs better but still misfires and stalls occasionally so i gave it to charity. Overall happy until 150k
Comfy leather seats, big trunk, sleek appearence.
Relayout engine, back row of spark plugs is under manifold, costs a fortune to change. Ignition key cylinder has a plastic part that broke off and i had to replace the ENTIRE wheel column..thank goodness i found one cheap at a Pick n Pull.
