1997 Chrysler Cirrus

This was the final year for production of the LX version of the Cirrus until 2000.  The LXi would be the only Cirrus available until the LX would return to fill the slot left open by the discontinued Plymouth Breeze.  
In 1997, the LX offered a more luxurious upgrade plan called the Gold Package.  This options group included an in-dash CD changer and a trip computer.  These options were also available in the LXi, which saw minimal change aside from the addition of chrome wheels.
While the Cirrus was praised for aggressive styling and clever cab-forward layout, a deeper look revealed a myriad of reliability issues.  Some were faced with simple electronic problems, requiring a trip to the dealer to reset the car's computer.  Other drivers reported replacing the brakes, ignition, and transmission before reaching 100,000 miles.
