The lucky leftover - Chrysler Cirrus LXi
The only problem was a broken exciter ring, part of the wheel assembly. I ran over a 2X4 on the freeway, thus breaking it. Thank GOD for my extended warranty, it was covered, otherwise ~$800 dollars to repair it.
I had been stopping at my local Chrysler dealer, prowling the lot. I came upon this Candy Apple Red Chrysler Cirrus, not jam packed loaded, but just enough to be a cool car. It was almost a year old when I bought it, well below the invoice pricing.
From start to finish my time with the Cirrus was a great one. Driving feel, control placement were right on the mark. I have never been in as comfortable a car since. The only gripe about the layout was the cup holders, which were rendered useless for anything other than a 12 ounce cup, as they were too close to the dashboard.
If they still made this car, in this state - I'd buy another one in a New York minute! What a great surprise from an unwanted car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
