When I saw this car it was in perfect condition. The interior, and exterior were perfect. The previous owner had tinted the windows, and it had after market chrome rims. The sound system was nice for stock coming with Infiniti speakers, and an amp in the truck.
I thought it was the perfect car for me because it was fully loaded with all the features you would expect in any luxury car, but the sticker price was very friendly to any first buyers pocket book. I paid a little over 13,500 before tax and licensing.
A few months after I bought the car the black tar started comming out of the doors leaking onto the plastic panels. I thought no biggy, got some bug and tar remover, and scrubbed it off. Most of it came off, but I was still shocked that the doors would do this comming from a big name like Chrysler.
The big money came when I had to replace all four rotors, brake pads, and the emergency brake. The mechanic was astonished at the damage that the previous ones had on them. The majority of my driving is back and forth from work, and that is all on the freeway. I don't go off road attempting to four wheel as some younger people may do in their cars.
Another problem happened around the winter time. The engine was taking too long to start for a car that was only a few years old when I bought it. When I took it to the shop the fuel injection was clogged, had to be flushed, and had to have the engine flushed as well. I have done this now several times just for the fact that I fear the problem may happen again.
Other than that, the car drives great, even when going 80 cross country. No vibrating steering wheel, or sudden jerks. I wish it had better gas mileage though. 13-19mpg... you think it had a V8 or something.
I was considering getting a Honda for my first car, but this car isn't too bad if you can afford the high maintenance on it. My advice to anyone who buys a Chrysler is you better make sure you have some savings in the bank otherwise you will be in a real pickle.
What still has me sold on this car, even with the problems I have had, is its unique design, sleek interior styling, and eye turning looks I get.
