Summary:

Midterm vehicle

Faults:

Oxygen sensors worn out about 15,000 KMs, and front suspension has been cracking since new. Otherwise no more problems with this model.

General Comments:

Fuel consumption is really elevated, I know it´s a turbo engine, but if you consider that it only has four cylinders, an average consumption of 7 kms per liter, it´s too high even if you don´t use full gas pedal.

Fair value for the price paid for this car, considering the standard equipment. Handling performance poor.

Summary:

Looks good, nice price, but I had a terrible problem with water inside!

Faults:

I had a problem and a recall:

1) Water gets into the interior; the floor at the back seat on the driver´s side after a regular rain was filled with water, to my surprise there was half a bucket of water inside the car. I found at least about one gallon worth of rain water, I´m not sure how it got in, but the back seat floor was filled with water. It´s very annoying to clean up and dry dirty water out of the carpet, it's hard work and I was very disappointed that Chrysler couldn't do a better job of sealing the car from water incoming into the interior. I spent 2 evenings cleaning it up, I did my best to dry it, but the car now has a disgusting smell of humidity inside.

2) I got a letter from Chrysler about a recall where they had to replace something related to radiator fans to avoid overheating. So I went to the service, and they installed a new wire running from the radiator fan, and on top of the radiator near the grill. The service employees were very kind and they treat you very well. So far it seems it worked, and the Cirrus doesn't overheat, but I lost about 1 day of my job waiting for the damn car.

General Comments:

The car looks very modern, and inside you feel almost as if you were in a far more expensive luxury car, BUT there´s a big problem with water getting inside. I´m afraid to drive it while it's raining because last time I ended up with one gallon of water inside.

I´m very disappointed at Chrysler, having water all over the floor is such a turn off, and it's a major problem to dry up the carpets.

I'm having the same problem with water, did you solve that problem? If so, how did you solve it?

Faults:

Nothing wrong with the car by now (only 19,800 Kms), I bought this car in August 2006.

General Comments:

The Cirrus (sebring Sedan in US) has an excellent built quality, with an excellent performance too.

It cames with an excellent level of equipment with a reasonable price.

Roomy and powerful.

Summary:

Bad quality and service

Faults:

I received this Cirrus (Sebring in US) 2 months ago. Actually is in for a service; third time in 2 months; with only 1,600 kms (around 1,000 miles). Everytime with a different mechanical problem.

First, front suspension was loose, second problem engine computer got burned; third problem, oxygen sensor failure. Service is a real nightmare!!! Chrysler takes around 2-3 days to find the problem, and another 3 to 5 days to fix it.

Fact: In this 2 months, the car has been more time with the mechanics than any other place. Never in my lifetime will I buy a Chrysler again.

General Comments:

I cannot give a comment on the car because it has been repaired most of the time.
