1985 Chrysler Fifth Avenue 5.2 liter V8 from North America
One of the best used cars in Canada
Nothing has really gone wrong, except the roof liner.
Have done normal preventive maintenance.
Car is prone to stalling when cold.
The seats are for my frame ideal.
It is relatively quick and thirsty in the city.
Brakes are very good for an American car.
The view out of the car is very good, easy to park.
Small turning circle for such a large vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a Chrysler 85 5th Ave, and I've got to say that I agree with you guys, my headliner is a little messed up, but everything else is like new in the car, in-n-out. It's a super smooth ride. It only has 81000 miles on it, but it's like new.
Thanks Chrysler for making this wonderful car.

Just curious as to what this is supposed to mean? "Brakes are very good for an American car"... Does that somehow infer that American cars do not have brakes on par with imports? I've owned a number of imports as well as a number of domestics, and I don't feel that my domestic vehicles brakes were any less effective than my imports. Granted, most of my domestics were heavier than most of my imports, but the brakes were excellent on both (well with the exception of my old cars that were equipped with drum brakes with no power assist). ;)

Well, American car makers did continue using drum brakes much longer than most European makes. I once owned a Renault R10 with four wheel disc brakes, built in 1968 when disc brakes, if they were available at all, were usually an extra-cost option on American cars and then only on the front wheels!
