I spend a lot of time in my vehicles and want comfort for long days.
The NYer has the most comfortable drivers seat ever!
While I love and have mostly driving European cars, I am a bit old for getting in and out of MGBs, Fiats and Alfas.
The bouncing is not a joy and performance is not - at my age - all that important (but this car has a lot).
i bought this car with 240,000 km on the clock, which sounds like a lot but averages out to less than 10K be year.
Well maintained, the few minor blemishes were easy to fix - a broken power antenna, replacing the broken front marker lights, and such.
Aluminum rims for $60 ea.

I purchased this car used witho about 54000 miles on it. It was roomy comfortable and stylish with nice power and a smooth ride. None of that matters compared to the engine and transmission troubles I had. I Had to have the engine replaced twice and the transmission wouldnt shift out of 2nd most of the time after 80,000 miles. I would often. smell burning something or other from time to time. The car died two years befor I finished paying for it. I will never purchase another chrysler. The service department at the dealership lied to me about it not having any oil when the engine went but thats the first thing I checked when it did. Plus if it had an oil leak that was their responsibility.

This has been a great family car.
Very comfortable for long trips, trunk
holds a huge amount of cargo. My only
complaint with this car probably
doesn't relate to the car. It seems
very difficult to diagnose when
something goes wrong. A/C was
repaired multiple times by 2 dealers
and 1 private before it was fixed.
Only major repair was timing belt, all
else standard repairs.

It was used when I bought it. What a
mistake... So far over the last 2 years
I've spent 2k on repairs. The overall
mechanical aspect of this car is so bad
that unless you are a mechanic you
should marry one prior to the purhcase.
Currently 700.00 of rack-pinion work is
forecast. This does not include tie-
rods and ball joints. The transmission
is next...2800.00...I keep thinking
that with the next repair I'll be done.
This car is rated POOR with most auto

Purchased new, now 176,000 miles and I
still love the car. Bought 100k
extended warranty, Used for seized up
water pump at 78,000, transmission at
97,000. Also had problems with a/c. No
major problems in last several years. I
can't find a new car for $40,000 that
would offer more car than this one and
make me feel I got my money's worth.

Very nice car to drive. However, I
believe that I found a number of
problems with the car over the past 2.5
years since purchasing used with low
milage. Chrome strips on the sides
fell off (minor problem) a couple of
times, and took away from the overall
look of the car. Frequent problems
with ball joints, wheel bearings, sway
bars, and tie rods. In the past 2
years, all of these front end parts
have been replaced once, some twice,
causing much annoyance and costing a
great deal. The sad part is, the vast
majority of my driving is on the
highway. I am told that sway bars and
ball joints are problems common to all
