1997 Chrysler Cirrus LX 4dr Sedan


Missed it by ... that much. Too much. In two years, I have had to service the brakes 3 times, replace ignition wires 2 times, and an idle knock has started in the lower end of the motor/tranny at 55,000 miles. Routine service was done. It averages only 18- 19 mpg around town with a 4 cylinder. It looks and handles nice, having lots of creature comforts. Also fast off the line and on the beltway. But, I plan to sell it. I was hoping for more mechanical reliability. I'm looking at Japanese cars now. I won't miss it much.

Best Features

Comfy interior and attractive rounded exterior lines in the cab forward design. Peepy motor and 4-speed auto.

Worst Features

ABS is first generation. Rear brake hoses defective. Premature auto transmission problem prevalent in those model year(s) Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth products.
