Good economical reliable transportation
I had the car two months when the transmission needed to be overhauled, the car had just over 70,000 miles so Chrysler honored the old 7/70 warranty and paid half of the $1800 repair.
Valve seals and timing belt were replaced at 150,000 miles.
I would not trade my "beater" for anything. The car has been extremely reliable. Even in sub-zero weather it has started with no problem. There is plenty of interior room and the back seat folds down to make sort of a hatchback so you can haul plenty in the trunk. A mechanic at the local Chrysler dealership where I have it worked on bought one for his son for a first car, that speaks volume to me. The 3.0 6 cylinder engine has a little lifter noise, but hey after 248K the old girl is allowed to grumble a little. It has always been great with mileage and acceleration. One thing that does bug me is the fact that you can't keep hubcaps on it, take a look around at most Acclaims and you will notice that they are missing two or more hubcaps.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
