Car is good. Regular features as found in any car 16 years old. Needs a better suspension both front and rear. Visibility through rear window not good. Functionality of the vehicle is great. Storage like crazy. A lot more than 150 HP. What is awkward about it is the window controls is on the dashboard. Other than the few quirks. Awesome vehicle.

Its An Elegant And Unique Car — I totally love how it borders on being ugly but beautiful at the same time. Its unique and it has style and character. Its not just a car, but more of personality. With all the other features you are sure to enjoy driving this small, powerful engine. Dynamites come in small packages.

Pros: Its small on the outlook but it has some serious cargo capacity. Powerful engine, unique exterior

Cons: Its a 2.4 L, so it definitely gives you power but also chows fuel a bit.

Good For Daily Driver — the car inside is loud and shakes but easily drowned out by music gas millage is terrible. It is a slow car with out the turbo. It also has bad wheal balance. however is somewhat fun to whip around corners.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: leg room

Cons: speed and gas

An Average Car — Decent on gas use. Pretty dependable car if maintenance is kept up with. Real hard to work on anything under the hood as access issues are really bad. There is just no room under the hood to do anything, repetitive sensor light issues.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage pretty good. easy to fit in, quick when it needs to be with the turbo.

Cons: Chrome over aluminum stock rims separating. Packed engine compartment, expensive dealership trips. Not backyard mechanic friendly, Just no room to work on the car.

It Is The Bane Of My Existence...at Least It Seems To Be Every Six Months. — I seriously used to love the idea of this car. It looked cool, loved the color, and it would run well. That NEVER LASTS LONG THOUGH! It's supposedly an American car that was for some reason discreetly made in a Mexican Chrysler factory so there's nothing about the car that is made to last. I drive this car less than two miles a day and it STILL manages to break down significantly every 6 months. If it's not the tires or the actual wheel s completely exploding or fracturing and needing to be replaced because I ran over a pothole, or the crappy turbo completely blows up, it's something stupid like an electrical sensor shorting out and costing $300 to replace each time. Nothing about this engine is easy to access either. You wanna change the spark plugs, you are gonna have to remove a hell of a lot of things from the engine first before that's gonna happen. And any after market car repair manuals on this vehicle will be completely vague with very bad maps and illustrations. CHRYSLER did not deserve to be bailed out just for this car alone!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's one of th few cars out there that comes in Shockwave PURPLE...

Cons: IT"S A CHRYSLER!!!!

A Fun Car With A Great Many Followers. Customizeable As Hell!! — This car was a great joy for me. It was fun to do all the things that I did to her, Speedy Gonzalez was her name and my mascot. The engine was the high output turbo variety and worked well. From all ranges it performed flawlessly. Parts for the custom work were all readily available and inexpensive. Easy to work on with a style all it's own. Of course, Chrysler dropped the line a few years ago but many are available today for good prices, just make sure you get a carfax report before you sign on the dotted line.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A real looker and fast too, it's a great car and fun to have. It has a lot of room, great design and oogles of add on parts available. I loved it, But, I discovered the Crossfires and a new love affair began.

Cons: None that I can think of. The car treated me well. The warranty was great and anything that did go wrong was covered. A loaner was provided. Lower control arm was replaced as it was a factory defect, no charge.

Good Car And We Really Like It. — It handles good and has good power and the quality is not bad either, the fuel mileage is a little poor for the size car it is but i suspect this might have something to do with the automatic transmission which could use an extra gear.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good family car but You either love it or hate it for its design.

Cons: The poor fuel mileage
