Cons

Nothing.

Great Convertible! — Great car. Very fun to drive. Built well. Very classy and looks good being driven down the road. Not expensive to keep up at all. Can be hot, but it's a convertible, so it's gonna happen. It can get a little bit of a musty smell, but that happens to convertibles.

Pros

Great fun car to drive, above average reliability and maintenance costs.  Kooks great going down the road and was very comfortable.

Cons

Not a great winter car, but that is probably to be expected with a convertible.

I Liked This Car A Lot, Had Fun Driving It. — Overall, we really liked this car. It had great features and options, was large enough to use for more than just riding in, but was a great good looking cruiser too. We would definitely purchase another one in the future. Loved to ride around with the top down. Used to ask my wife if she wanted to go riding around topless (she never did appreciate my humor with that question). Never the less still a really fun car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Love May Car — Over all the quality should have been better for the money. I am the original owner and love the car. Car looks like new, but after thousands of dollars in front end work the car still has noise in the front end. I would buy another one because it seats 4 people and ample trunk space.

Allot Of Road Noise And Many Nuisance Problems — Allot of road noise particularily at higher speeds. The tires wear out quicker than they should. At 100,000 KM on 3rd set of tires. Car vibrates when braking, no fault found by dealer. Window seals don't seem to fit properly. A/C Heater fan operates only at high speed. This is apparently a common problem but chrysler is ignoring it.

Pros

Excellent bodywork quality.Sleek, good looking car. Cabin is tasteful, has good ergonomics and is made of quality materials. Crisp handling, smooth and powerful engine.

Cons

Truly eye-swiveling, window licking insane engine design. The water and oil pumps are INSIDE the crankcase and run off the timing chain. A water pump failure will wreck the engine by fouling the oil if you don't catch it quickly. And if you do, the repair will set you back at least $2,500, as will an oil pump replacement. I know, I've been there.

Standard brakes are really weedy. I fitted cross drilled and slotted rotors along with ceramic pads. That made a big difference, but my wife's 1998 Sable Wagon still brakes better with standard hardware.

If only the mechanics and electrics matched the body and cabin quality!

The front suspension is badly designed and prone to premature wear. Electrics are iffy.

Valley Girl On Wheels - Nice To Look At But Very High Maintenance. — Hideous mechanics with even more hideous repair costs. Battery is in a loony place. You have to jack up the car and remove the driver's side front wheel to get at it. Even if you buy a super clean well maintained example, chances are it's a dog in disguise. For the kind of money I've plowed into this car, I could have bought and maintained a Jaguar XJ8. If you're tempted by this car, don't be. If you want a car that will beat you up and steal the contents of your wallet on a regular basis, buy a Jag. At least you'll get mugged in style.

Pros

Great styling

Cons

It has been a money pit.  Transmission quit on the interstate, It has sensors everywhere, I know because I have replaced nearly every one of them.  Interior lights  go on at random times and seem to be related to whether door is locked or unlocked.  Leave it alone for a couple of days and your battery will be dead.

Money Pit — It has been a money pit. Transmission quit on the interstate, It has sensors everywhere, I know because I have replaced nearly every one of them. Interior lights go on at random times and seem to be related to whether door is locked or unlocked. Leave it alone for a couple of days and your battery will be dead. I would not recommend the LX Coupe with the 3.0. Seats make your legs go numb after an hour and getting out of the car requires leverage as you pry your body out. Don't buy this car!

Pros

Sharp looking car with comfortable seats and a decent rear seat. Peppy engine with good torque and excellent fuel economy. Ecxellent Harmon Kardon sound system with multi CD changer. This car has been carefully maintained with particular emphasis on keeping clean oil in the engine and keeping it garaged to keep the paint good. Putting the top up and down is easy!

Cons

Rear view visibility with top up is poor. You lose some storage space as the car needs room to stow the top. Car requires clean oil as sludge problems have been reported. These mechanical problems have lowered the resale values so you need to check the maintance records if you buy one. I also think it could use a stiffer suspension for performance but Chrysler designed this car for non enthusiasts- i.e to be beautiful and comfortable, have power and look good. It's not for cranking around hairpin turns at speed!  If you want to change your oil every 8000 miles forget it!

Fun In The Sun And On Summer Nights — Comfortable and smooth this is a peppy car with comfortable seats and roomier back seats than most convertibles. Gas mileage is excellent! Look for car with regular oil changes. Using the top is easy. A fun good looking car that is fun to drive!
