Nice car until hit 170,000 miles. Had to drop 2000 dollars into it. Wouldn't start. Had timing belt, coolant flush,New muffler, I don't remember what else. After having a bunch of things fixed, I still have problems with car starting. Takes 3-5 tries before car starts. Mechanic cannot figure out what is causing it. Engine light stays on because of cylindar 1 misfire. All cylinders have been cleaned, and still get that code show up when engine light is on. Car doesn't run different. Was suggested o2 sensors but those are impossible to find. I suggest wording parts for that car at amautopart.com. cheaper! Else where parts for that pos car can be expensive.
I have had nothing but problems with this car since I purchased it. The speed sensor went three times, in addition to other repairs - control arms replacement, door lock attenuator, replaced all the rims (got money back in the Class Action Lawsuit), headlight is foggy (from inside), etc. I have been adamant on keeping up with the maintenance book but have run out of room to write in all the extras that were needed. I am maticulous with the exterior (looks new) but have been battling rust that is coming from the inside of the hood leaching out. Most mechanics do not want to work on Chryslers and the parts (Mopar only) are difficult and expensive. My next car? Something foreign!
So far, I have loved this car. I have
only had it for about 3 months now but
I could not have asked for more in a
car for the price. If you are worried
about appearance, this is a super-sexy
car. I've read several reviews
complaining about the wheels bending
easily, but luckily, mine came with
after-market wheels off the used car
lot. My only complaint is that of the
low front end. I find myself braking
and cringing at any little dip in the
Spacious, comfortable interior,
fabulous infinity sound system from
the factory, fully loaded with all of
This car looks fast, but doesn't quite
perform as advertised. The 170 HP is
well under what I had expected.
Recently, I replaced a bent rim...and
I am constantly swerving from
potholes. The transmission shifts in
and out of overdrive for some reason,
and takes a hell of a lot of time to
get into overdrive on cold mornings
(the dealership says that both
are "normal conditions"). The front
end of this car drags on anything, so
if you buy one, be sure to keep your
distance from parking blocks. My next
car will definately not be a Chrysler,
unless someone GIVES me one....BUY
Interior is stylish and comfy, great
stereo. Exterior is also quite sporty.
More HP! Raise the front end slightly,
more durable rims, better
transmission, fog lights that can be
used with the parking lights (useless
otherwise)...did I mention more HP?
I have had over a dozen flat tires over
the past 2 years. All four tires take
turns just randomly loosing air. The
front end scrapes on the slightest
incline. The brakes have been squeaking
since day 1. I could never get the
dealer to do anything for me. I'd love
to trade my car in at the dealer I
purchased it from and stick him with it
but I can't bring myself to buy another
Nice looking car they just forgot to
make it dependable.
Get rid of the high performance tires,
raise the front end, do something about
the overall quality of the car!
