This car handles like it's on rails and has been unbelievably reliable even with those cold cranking starts in -40 weather. The only question I have is why did Chrysler stop making these cars and the 2.2 / 2.5 engines.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Just a hunch.. but maybe becasue they didn't break down frequently enough.. the poor mechanics at the dealer were probably getting bored. After all, even the minor repairs these engines did require were simple to accomplish for the most part.

I read on a website that these cars did not rate well on accidents. Especially head-on collisions. But, due to the popularity of sales at the time, they continued production. The last year these cars were made, driver-side airbags were added.
