Nice, but could have been better
By Mark Sarsfield on


1998 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 4dr Sedan


This is a nice car. Built like a tank. Almost as heavy as one, too. Engine is under-powered, though, and is shoe-horned into the car. This makes it hard to work on engine components, which I have done several times. Tranny also hesitates to shift when you floor it. You practically red-line before it goes into the next gear. Avg. fuel economy for a V6. For the amount of driving that I do, I have to fill the 16-gallon tank up about once a week. Body and paint are in great shape, except for some minor dings on the doors from inconsiderate shoppers/neighbors/coworkers and a few tiny rust bubbles on the very tip of the hood from rocks flying up on the highway.

Best Features

Power driver seat. Very nice audio quality and the stereo can pick up more stations than most other factory radios.

Worst Features

Needs a more powerful engine and more reliable transmission - after 100k miles all bets are off. Lighten the weight.
