Pros

Roomy, comfortable interior.  Powerful V6 motor return decent gas mileage, fully loaded and worth it.

Cons

Electrical nightmares aplenty.

Electrical Nightmare, But Otherwise A Decent Car. — Dodge had a great idea with this car; cab forward design, 212 hp 3.5 Liter SOHC V6. But this car is an electrical nightmare. The gas gauge doesn't give a reading half of the time, ignition switch needs to be replaced (gauges sometimes do not go on after started, causing car to die out. Airbag light comes on for no friggin reason. ABS and traction control sometimes disable themselves. The positives are; very roomy interior, decent acceleration and gas mileage for a car this size, lots of bells and whistles with the ES package (leather interior, automatic climate controls (although these are problematic; had to replace mine), excellent infinity sound system straight from factory, comfortable to drive, and onboard computer that calculates gas mileage, outside temp, digital compass. Hasn't cost me much to maintain considering the build quality. Upper and lower intake manifold gaskets were pretty easy to replace and only 7 dollars for Fel Pro replacements. Did plugs and wires, and the car drives MUCH better now. The previous owner neglected maintenance on this car so I had to make it right. Only paid $500 for the car with 151,200 miles on it, so I can't complain

Not Active

Looks Good, Performance Sux Ass. — Handling is good; exterior is good; i wish that interior was leather; the factory paint sux, it ships fast; parts rust very fast, including struts, rotor plate cover, doors, etc; the motor and transmission still doing good; car has some performance problems because of the high mileage and age.

Good Comfortable Wheels — I owned this car for two years, and it served me well for them. It was comfortable, had decent performance, handled well, but lacked alot of character.

Great Car. Good Performance, Considering Its Age. Lots Of Interior And Trunk Space. — This is a really good car. Good acceleration, considering its age and weight. It's registered 120 and could probably hit it if it didn't have the governor at 106. It has good handling for a big sedan. Plenty of room on the inside and lots of trunk space. Has steering wheel mounted cruise control. Does not have anti-lock brakes and has drum brakes in the back.
