2013 Chrysler 200 Touring 2.4L from North America
Not a race car, but a nice work car and grocery getter
So far the car only has the driver's door opening handle peel the chrome coating.
I like the car. It's not a street racer, but a drive to work and the store car. It's not the best powered car on the market with the 4 cylinder engine. I've drove a 6 cylinder version and liked the power, but couldn't keep from driving it with my foot all the way down, so I bought a 4 cylinder version.
I test drove a couple of rental car returns, and think they must leave the sound insulation out of those cars. I ended up buying a model year left over car new for less than the rental return cars were selling for. I've been very happy. The door openings are much larger and the car sits a bit higher than many others. I drive a lot of full size rental cars. If there isn't a Chevy Impala, this is the car I choose. And I only like the Impala because of the 300+ HP engine. Some cars are faster or have more trinkets, but it has a nice ride for a smaller car and I know where all the buttons are.
I had an older Deville before this, but my last long term car was a 07 Pontiac G6. Both the 200 and G6 had very few problems. The 200 does ride quieter, and gets a little better fuel mileage. I had a 4 cylinder version of the G6 for 5 years, and sold to my step daughter who is still driving it 3 years later.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Original reviewer back. The car is now at 20,500 miles. Finally had to have warranty work completed on the car for the door handle and handling issues. I found out the car on winter roads and weight in the back seat or trunk, the car gets very unstable. Searched the web and found the alignment can be the problem as the rear is not following the front. Chrysler is such a great company that they even let me pay for the alignment. And another $20 to rotate the tires so the tread depths were matched up from the poor wear patterns caused by the misalignment. I'm missing why they advertise a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty when they don't cover anything. Needless to say Chrysler has irritated me.

Warranties offered by dealers in general are scams. They only cover specific things that usually won't cost a lot to repair on their end. The idea isn't to save you money at all, but rather to get you into the habit of taking your car to the dealership to get it fixed for everything, where they'll charge you well above any regular shop. A lot of people fall for these warranty deals and find out too late that those things aren't nearly as useful as they think they are.

That wasn't the warranty offered by the dealer - that was the Chrysler warranty.

You are correct, it's Chrysler's warranty and not the dealers. But the dealer gets paid for doing the warranty work. So I'm missing the point you are trying to make. I get to return there Friday to get the hood emblem installed. That they cover under warranty. They want the car to look good, not ride good.
