1999 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 2.5L V6 from North America
A sleek, powerful machine, only owned seven months so reliability TBD
Tires wear unevenly both side to side of individual tires and independently of each other; indicates to me alignment/possible wheel bearing issues.
Just replaced front pads and rotors; not sure if they were the originals, but based on other things I have read about this car I doubt it.
Starts and runs reliably (so far).
Lots of power compared to my 4-cylinder CR-V; this cars runs up to high RPM when you step on it, which I don't like so much for the sake of not wanting to put unnecessary wear on the engine/motor, but this V6 gets up and goes, not much "stepping on" it needed, especially compared to the four banger I also own.
Comfortable, but a bit small for my large frame.
The body is in good shape for an 18 year old car; a bit of rust on the hood lip and on the back quarter panels, but that is all. Under the hood looks remarkable for a car this old.
Not good in the snow despite a low center of gravity.
No issues so far. Final lifespan and significant issues in the future will determine my willingness to buy another Chrysler product. A good buy at $1200 with no immediate repairs needed and 73000 at time of purchase.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
