Summary:

This car is a piece of crap

Faults:

Transmission failed on previous owner, which I replaced with a used one.

TCM went bad right after the transmission was put in.

Transmission went out about 100 miles after I put the used one in.

Service garage doesn't have any clue why the transmission doesn't work, and I put in over $300 to try to find out what it was.

Idles very rough.

Everything electrical completely sucks. (Lights, interior lights, radio...)

ABS locks up for no reason, even after a new ABS computer was put in.

Gauges are useless... (They don't work)

General Comments:

Nobody buy this car. It's the nicest looking one out there, but it'll cost thousands to maintain.

Summary:

Good, comfortable and quick

Faults:

Car will shut down at anytime, driving or in park. Sometimes will start right back others will take 5 minutes to a day. Also, car a few times has shifted into and sticks in 1st gear-turning car off and on resolves this problem. Had fuel pump, fuel filter and distributor replaced, none has helped - need to fix please send any ideas or solutions.

General Comments:

Car is generally in good shape and runs well except for the above.

Summary:

A waste of money

Faults:

Transmission failure

Fuel pressure failure

O2 sensor failure

CPS sensor failure

ABS sensor failure.

General Comments:

Like many other people, I had the same problem with the car dieing. It never happened frequently. No problems restarting afterwards.

My symptoms included rough idle, bouncing RPM, RPM gauge dropping to 0, and stuttering.

On a hot day (around 105F) was driving and the car suddenly dies. And would not restart. Checked everything and couldn't find anything wrong.

I had it towed and it sat at a shop for almost 2 days. I called and they said they couldn't figure it out and the diagnostics were good, didn't reveal anything wrong.

After doing some research on the net I called the mechanic back and told him some of the solutions other people have had with my same problem.

I told him about the Crankshaft Position Sensor and he called me back and said that was it. They wanted $150.00 for the part and another $50.00 for repair.

I called around and NAPA had the part for $45.00. I went to pick up the car and the mechanic wouldn't even tell me where the part was located cause I was going to put it in myself. So I sat in the parking lot and finally found it. It's on the backside of the transmission. I plugged it in, car fired right up. Flipped off the mechanic and peeled out of the lot.

Hopefully that will help some of you.

My car currently idles horribly and I'm having transmission issues _again_. Fuel filter has been replaced with a high quality one. Ran fine a few days now it runs even worse. New plugs, wires, distributor cap, and belts. Still same problems.

Took it to a transmission shop, cause I was more concerned about that than the idling. But the mechanic said the car runs so poor he can't even get the transmission to perform. So, I'm really wondering if the car is even worth it anymore. It has been parked for almost 2 months now.

This is the second Chrysler vehicle I have owned, both had similar problems. My old one blew a rod. I really love the car, but will not buy another Chrysler again.

Summary:

Straight from the Lemon Tree

Faults:

Where do I begin with problems?! The car needed a new PCM within months of owning it. Replaced that, then it promptly went out as soon as the warranty ran out (12 miles after the warranty died). Replaced PCM again and problems with idle racing on its own, car wouldn't start at times, it smoked, I couldn't keep brakes on the thing and worst of all---The transmission would shift itself out of drive into neutral while my family and I were traveling 60mph on the highway--Dangerous situation indeed! The car had major oil leaks, transmission leaks and whenever a part was needed, it cost out the tail. I actually drove the car into the dealership that I begged a trade in off of with the thing in its "limp" mode (where it was in drive, but it was in neutral as far as it going, Cirrus owners you know what I am talking about). Anyways.. Please reconsider something else like a dependable Buick or Chevrolet before buying a Cirrus. Please for your sake and the safety sake of your family.

General Comments:

My Cirrus was straight from the Lemon Patch. Great handling, great gas mileage for a car that is that size, but overall a Loser for me.

I wholeheartedly disagree with one point. My 95 Chrysler Cirrus got horrendous gas mileage. Every other point in this review was exactly right
