Whatever Chrysler did with this model, they ought to apply to all of today's models
Starter tends to bind up when vehicle is hot - vehicle must cool for about 20 minutes before restarting.
Window regulators need frequent repair.
Headlight switch tends to overheat (a very common problem with 60's-era Chryslers).
This has been, unarguably, the best vehicle I have ever owned. In its 42 years, it has never been towed. It rides beautifully and catches compliments from everyone that sees it running around town.
I bought it in 1996 at the age of 19, and though it has seen some wear and tear due to daily driving, it still runs like new and needs surprisingly little maintenance for a car of its age.
Gas mileage is about 14 mpg, which is better than expected given the size of the engine and of the vehicle. The engine, transmission and all major engine components are all original, and still running like new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
