1995 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 2.5L

Summary:

Worst piece of machinery I've ever encountered

Faults:

First thing that happened was last fall (almost a year ago) my water pump randomly went at about 42,000 miles, taking my timing belt along with it and busted up a few of my valves, thanks to the brilliance of the interference engine. Thank god I had a Chrysler mechanic as a family friend, and he rebuilt my entire engine for me.

Now, today, the car went into limp mode and won't shift out of first. No matter what.

My AC almost never works, the power "seats" are getting slower and slower, and I can almost never reach the pedal. My stupid antenna goes down when it's feeling nice, and stays up when its feeling sassy. The heat also doesn't work anymore.

The limp mode thing has been the final straw. It's got freakin' 57,000 miles on it -- HOW CAN A TRANNY BREAK THAT EARLY ON!

A rebuilt engine? OK.

Trying to fix this stupid tranny problem? No thanks.

All Chrysler Cirrus should be rallied up and simultaneously burned.

General Comments:

I hate it.

My 1999 Chrysler Cirrus hasn't given me any problems at 80,000 miles. I'd be very unhappy if somebody tried to burn mine.

1995 Chrysler Cirrus LXI 2.5

Summary:

I love these cars, once you understand them

Faults:

This is my second motor, and tranny.

The first motor and tranny had 225,000, so I replaced both, with a lower mileage motor.

Buy a new distributor from Autozone, and it comes with a lifetime warranty.

The crank sensors, are easy to replace, they have 1 screw holding them.

General Comments:

I see a lot of people saying they love these cars, but there are some maintenance issues.

I have maintenance issues also, but there are things which need to be done to cars to keep them running.

Chrysler cars, are just over engineered, since they have always gotten a bad rap, they have put extra, or too much into the cars, and as a result, they're over engineered.

They were the first to start the electronic tranny rage. Now everyone has them, and my neighbor who is an import tech, says Honda trannys are just as bad.

We cannot blame them for trying to deliver us, (U.S.A) better vehicles. Sometimes there are gonna be a few bad apples, when you start to get into the 21st Century of engineering.

1995 Chrysler Cirrus LX 2.5L V6

Summary:

I love it and want to keep it, but it needs help

Faults:

The car was given to me. The previous owner thought it was a fuel pump, he liked the car, but, had 2 other vehicles, and as this one wasn't running, didn't want to put any time or money into it.

The car ran fine for me for a week or so, but then it quit. A buddy of mine who is a class A mechanic said it is not the fuel pump, but an ignition module. Here is the problem. No auto parts here have one, and they say, and I quote "We cannot get that part". Is it against the law to sell it, or, is my buddy possibly wrong and it is instead the fuel pump module gone haywire? Any help out there? I haven't had it long, but, I love the car.

General Comments:

It is a great car... when it is running. I have driven it and rode around in it when my friend had it. But, when it decides to act up... it really acts up.

Summary:

Overlook it and move on to another one

Faults:

Hello everyone, I purchased the Cirrus in November of 2007, and when I first started using the vehicle it was great.

After 6 months, the car felt as though the transmission was slipping, so I had it checked. Transmission ended up being in solid form, but it continued and I kept getting it checked, to no avail, it never panned out for me.

Then on the 8th month my car started stalling out and had trouble starting right back up. I had a distributor problem, so I replaced that along side my crankshaft sensor, EGR valve, and my throttle control sensor. It worked for about 2 months, and then it started happening once again.

So my brother, who is a master mechanic, took a look and put his read out meter to it, and verified my PCM is fried. There's no communication from my transmission to my engine. I will not spend that ridiculous amount of money on a new computer.

General Comments:

Although the car is comfortable and looks practical and nice when done up, the car has way too many issues with electrical problems, and if you feel that you can shell out money left and right to fix the car, then be my guest, but in the end you're spending enough to lease or finance a new car.
