2011 Chrysler 200 Limited 2dr Convertible (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Let me begin by saying this is my wife's car and she is mostly happy it. However, she is not a car person. This is a car for old folks; there is nothing young, exciting or sexy about this short, stubby looking, boring car. It has a dead spot in the accelerator and the car doesn't move until you've pressed pedal down over an inch; dealer says that's normal. It had a water leak where the driver's door glass meets the "A" pillar; took 3 tries to repair it. Handling at speed is almost dangerous with lots of torque steer and no road feedback through the electric power steering. Fuel economy is poor (17 MPG combined). Trunk lid is very heavy due to convertible top mechanism that's attached to it.

Best Features

We bought this car because it was the only 4 passenger convertible with front wheel drive in its price range. Head rests are very comfortable (Mustang could learn a lesson from that).

Worst Features

Restyle this car so it is attractive, youthful and exciting. Go back to a conventional top that folds into a well behind the rear seat. That will reduce the height of the car as well as the price, as there won't be all that mechanism that opens and closes the deck lid to allow the top to store there. Drop the hard top option; it's pricey, adds weight to the car and reduces performance and fuel economy. Fix the suspension to reduce torque steer, enhance road feedback through steering wheel. Front seat bottom cushion is too thin; the seat heater can be felt through the cushion. due to wedge shape of the body, vision through the back window is limited. Fit and finish is poor.
