This Car has a great interior. Great Sound System and navigation. Some door handles poor quality. Weird transmission, I'm still not used to it. Only take car to dealer to get work done. It needs Mopar parts. Most other places do not understand how to repair this car. The resale value isn't great. I believe it would be a good car to lease. But not keep long term. Overall I would give it a 3.5/5. Thanks I hope this helps.

Great acceleration and sharp car

I bought this brand new and got great pricing. Was unsure about buying a Chrysler but this car has 80000 miles on it and I have not had one bit of trouble. My husband is tall and not real flexible so he has trouble getting in easily. My son is taller (and younger) and has no difficulty getting in and out. The trunk space is too small for long vacations if 4 of us go, but we have made do. It also has a larger turn radius than I like. It handles well otherwise and has been fun to drive. The gas mileage has been great. Traveled last weekend and averaged 31.6 mpg. I am gifting this car to my son for his graduate school career.

Will never buy another Chrysler

Wish I could afford to sue Chrysler for how off they are about the MPG. Have done regular maintenance on this vehicle over the 3 years I have owned it. No matter how easy I drive this vehicle I have yet to see overy 24 MPG. My average since owning the car is 21. This IS a 4 cylinder. Next, the acceleration is terrible. You press the pedal expecting it to go, wait 3-4 seconds of almost standstill then finally some movement. Not safe if you ask me when defensive driving is important. Braking has never been good. Any quick stop results in the entire vehicle shaking from its horrible anti lock. I have already been told that the brakes and rotors are good so again just terrible mechanics. There are many other things but my biggest pet peeve is the tricks Chrysler uses to force you back to the dealership for maintenance. For example, if you want to change the battery you must remove the front bumper, remove the headlight and then the battery. Even just changing the headlight bulb requires the same thing or removing the plastic in the wheel well. Ridiculous is putting it gently. Just look elsewhere at all costs. Buyer beware.

Bought the car certified used with 14,000 miles on it. Was fine until we got about 34,000 miles on and noticed jerking from the transmission. Took it to the dealer couldn't recreate the jerking they said let check the grand fluid it may be the problem it was about a quart and a half short. It still did the jerking after many transmission shops and talking with the dealer it took about 6 months to a year before the would believe me so they had me bring it in after about 6 hours they called and the bearing in the transmission had failed. Would have thought that they would put a new transmission to my surprise repared new parts a year later the same jerking and sluggishness when driving and yes I called the company and no help the dealer (galeana Chrysler of Columbia South Carolina was no help sales men said it was my moms fault for signing the paperwork. No one give me an answer for why the transmission so that low on fluid and the company was no help at all WILL NEVER E VER BUY ANOTHER CHRYSLER OR FROM THEAT DEALERSHIP AGAIN OR ANY DEALER THEY OWN

Too many problems to be this new

I have a 2012 Chrysler 200. I have had it for 2.5 years. I purchased the extended warranties thank goodness. The heater core went out on the passenger side a year after I purchased the car. I also had a recall done on the drivers side head rest in 2014. In 2016 while driving home the drivers side head rest deployed hitting me in the back of the head VERY hard while driving. I'm lucky it didn't knock me out. All I wanted was my car fixed and Chrysler has sent their person over and did a review and sent me a letter stating it was nothing they did on their part. So of course now I have my attorney involved. I could have went to the doctor and built up a million in doctor bills because I know I have neck damage and it's causing issues with my arms but I just wanted my car fixed. I really like my car, but it only has 69K miles on it and it should not be having these issues. It handled really poorly when I first got it but I put good Toyo tires on it and now it handles great. I hope they don't make a huge fight out of this because I really want to keep my car but I will get rid of it and never by Chrysler again if they don't take responsibility.

Stuck with this for a few months

Have a Chrysler 200 that was rented for me for a few months. Had it one week and already hate it. Transmission is annoying. Feels like something is wrong with car but apparently there isn't, was just told that's what the car does. They have a fleet and they all do the same thing, I was told. It makes it feel like I am constantly making small acceleration/deceleration changes but I am not. Very uncomfortable when driven more than a few miles. Rides is bad but can't tell if its the transmission or suspension. Layout of and type of controls is nothing short of goofy. The shift control is a knob right near all the radio knob controls, making it easy to reach for the wrong one. Plus counterintuitive controls so it is uncomfortable to use. Emergency Brake is electric. Seems entire car is dependent on a computer for all controls so, nothing manual. Hate to know what would happen if the car's decided to accelerate on its own. There would be no manual control to intervene. If you are six feet or taller your head will rub against the ceiling in the back seat. Does look nice though...

Only looks pretty

Had this car for 3 years. Things fall off this car! Plastic parts,hoses,front bumper...bumper snaps back in, though. Cheap plastic accessory parts that break off. Rubber seals popping out around windows and convertible roof. Windshield seal is separating, causing floors to be wet. Infamous water in the dash from ac. Ac fan is now making noise. Dash lights flicker on and off. Rear tires continue to have cupping, despite alignment. There is a whistling sound when windows are up, probably another faulty seal. Power windows USUALLY work. If you are a smoker, there is no way to crack windows in the rain without interior doors getting soaked. Extremely windy when roof is down. Have to take off tires and other stuff to replace headlights. Finally found the battery! Have to take off tire to get to it. Really? I feel that all the great technology went into the engine and the sound system/computer (which is actually impressive) but no where else. Very cheaply built, probably why it was listed as the most affordable convertible. The car is a beast,very disappointing :/

Right now four of us who own a 2012 chrysler 200 are having to have a heater core put in as no heat on passenger side and does not defrost on passenger side have been advised that cost is 6-800! Sounds like a recall problem but mechanic says that is normal for a chrysler 200!

This car is junk!!! I will NEVER own another Chrysler vehicle AGAIN!!! I cannot believe I wasted my money on this piece of garbage!! I would rather drive a GM car any day!! This car is WAY behind in technology compared to GM and it's a very ugly car. And the trunk is teeny tiny. It looks like the back end was smashed in. I'm so glad I got rid of it and went back to GM cars.

I bought my car from Carvana with 32000 miles. So far, in the four months of owning it, I have made no repairs. The sound system is great. Passengers constantly remark about the nice bass. It is a comfy car that handles speed bumps and pit holes fairly well. I enjoy driving it. I also have no difficulty recognizing it in a parking lot- as the lovely white paint is still in great condition.

I actually sought this car out; it was everything I was looking for. I purchased my 2012 200 Limited convertible in April 2015 with under 30,000 miles on it for $21,800.00 (a bit over priced but at the time I was ok with it). We test drove it at high speed on the highway, with top down and up, as a driver and a passenger. Since we travel one of the top things I was looking/listening for was noise, and the only noise at the time was a small wind coming through the rear driver’s side window- I decided to deal with it since it wasn’t in my ear as a passenger, proving I’m not unreasonable. Then the fun began. I used to have a 2008 Mercury Sable Premier, so I was spoiled. Even though they were both priced at almost $30,000 new, the 200 has nothing on the Sable. I have had several issues since buying it and after several trips to the dealer I’m left with ‘It’s normal’. The top squeaks when it’s up, sometimes worse than others and after a rain I can NOT put my windows down without a flood of water coming in… consistently. Not drips, a flood. The drives side window would catch on the trim but they adjusted that. I have a bad wind noise in the car now, not sure where the hell that came from but… IT’S NORMAL, so they say! During this process I had been emailing Chrysler and they were getting back to me and following up regularly. After I got the final exam done on the car with the same ‘it’s normal for a convertible’ I then responded to Chrysler telling them I expected more from a 30,000.00 car. They did talk to the dealership and agreed… here’s a quote. “ they drove your vehicle and found the noise was the air rush on the outside of that car that would be due to it being a convertible. It is a normal noise. He stated you may experience a creek noise as it will move due to it being a convertible. They found no water or air leaks. He stated there is nothing wrong with the vehicle. He stated the body shop adjusted the windows. Some water will come in when the windows are put down. This is a normal condition when dealing with a convertible sports top. After thoroughly reviewing your request and the files on this matter, we respectfully concur with the decision rendered by the dealership.” So I’ve owned a hard top and a soft top, the hard top was a Mercedes so I can let that slide but the soft top was either 96’ or 97’ Sebring. I wanted a better car and a quieter car which is why I got the hard top AND the Limited. What a waste of money! I could have spent less money and got the same quality. Other issues: Delay in transmission- after you accelerate then let off the gas it will hesitates and drag back down. I was also told this is normal. Uncomfortable- even if it’s listed as ‘premium’ leather. Navigation- Pain in the butt to use. Gas millage- not so good I wish it had memory seats and retractable gas peddle (I'm, only 4'11") Pro's: Drives nice, little actual 'road noise', takes bumps well Tight steering Looks nice Heat and air work well Heated seats go up the back

I bought this car almost exactly one year ago. It's been in for repair way more than a car as new as it is with as low miles as it has. Cylinder head back in February. Then they rebuilt the transmission in May, brought it back in July because it was doing the same thing but they supposedly didn't find anything, then because it obviously didn't change brought it back in August they replaced a valve in the transmission, September the torque converter(which is something I told them to look at the second time they didn't find anything) AND the Cylinder head AGAIN. It's all under the extended warranty that THANK GOD I purchased. I bought it with 53K miles, it now has 70K miles. A car in my opinion should not need all those major repairs with those miles. Plus I kept asking them to look at the torque converter The buying exp. was terrible too, I was pressured into buying the car and he didn't give me a chance to look at many other vehicles. Outside of the major repair issues I love the car. I think it's sharp looking, rides smoothly when it's working, has great features and amazing power. Around 290HP is pretty awesome plus gets GREAT gas mileage for a V6. I love the LED lights around the headlights and the taillights too.

Love the car, hate the mpg.

This car is beautiful inside and out. It is really, really fun to drive. I would say it is a cream puff. However, the part that is disappointing is the mileage. The mileage is terrible on this car. The very best we did on the highway was 22mpg. It seems like for a smaller car the mileage should be much better.

Ok for the price but beware.

My car was bought in Jan of 2012. Since then I have kept the car well maintained. Having an oil leak I thought the people that did my oil changes messed up the oil plug. It turned out to be the engine oil seal. The dealership told me this is a common problem. Also at 26K miles my tires went bad. For this car being able to get tires with warranty at 100K miles this is bad. I was told the tires were not balanced. They were factory tires but are not covered. Also make sure you check your alignment often as this destroyed my front tires. I can now see the quality difference between Chrysler and Toyota. I owned my Toyota Corolla for 8 years no problem. Can not say the same about my Chrysler.

I have had this car for 2 months and love this car,s handling and options. The engine is fast and effortless when accelerating. Feels like i am driving a expensive sport car. The sound system and navigation is fantastic and easy to use. I store all my cd,s in the hard drive. they are all automatically filed in different categories in the hard drive. The sound is fantastic. Great car for the money. I am fully satisfied with this car. Traded in a Lexus es 330 and enjoy driving this car a lot more than my Lexus that I traded in.

I have had the car for a year now, and mine has 26k on it. I like the design and standard features of the car(especially for $18k). I haven't had any real problems with it, and it still drives like it did when I got it. I will say that the transmission is rough, but I am a car person, so I looked up the gear ratios and noticed how far apart they are from first to second gear and that seems to be the reason. This should only affect the 4cyl because of its lower power. My fiance' has a 4cyl toyota corolla which does the same thing, so I think it is normal. I would have rather gotten the v6 for the power, but everything else is good.

I purchased my Chrysler 200 in January 2012 it was my first new car purchase. I have to say I've had fewer problems with the used cars I've owned. My 200 currently has just over 30,000 miles my first service visit was right after I purchased it my key fob didn't work right you had to be within 5 feet of the car and press the button sometimes multiple times it turned out to be a lose coupler I had to take it in 3 times to get that fixed. Next was some nylon string unraveling from bellow the steering wheel. Then I had a knocking in the steering colum that has been fixed multiple times and lastly I just had the heater core and the radiator replaced due to heater failure!

I have had mine for a week now. I was in a 2000 Buick LeSabre before this. I was looking for an easy transition and I found it in this car. I got the Touring model so I didn't get all the bells and whistles like heated seats, Uconnect, touch screen head unit, etc. Don't misinterpret, this care is loaded with many great features (listed below). The 200 rides very smoothly and is quiet for a very comfortable ride. It is also surprisingly roomy (even in backseat). I love the interior design with chrome accents. The exterior trim is classy and sporty at the same time which was exactly what I was looking for. I am getting the windows tinted next week to add to that.

After driving an Oldsmobile Aurora (still my favorite car of all time) for many years we purchased a Hyundai Sonata. I found I missed many of the comforts of the Aurora...climate control, sun roof, V6 engine, etc. While these options are available on other vehicles, the Chrysler 200 was priced far below the competition. This would not have been my first choice in cars, but after 13,000 miles I still have not found another car I would choose over this one (for the money). Overall - BEST VALUE. I do miss the super quiet Cadillac NorthStar engine and silky smooth automatic transmission in my Aurora, but what the heck, this car was half the price.

Kind of soon to tell, but love it so far!

This car has many things I wouldn't have thought of but now can't live without! Notable features include the comfort of driving it as a shorty. I'm about 5'3" and the seat raises up/down, the wheel goes in/out (as well as up/down) and the seat belt lowers to a comfy shoulder height. Great visibility when up high on the adj. seat. All of which can be changed for my taller husband (if I ever let him drive) It's fun to drive, sharp interior, 130 miles on it and used just over a 1/4 tank, great handling. Only issue is pulling to the right which I'm calling about today. Hope they're great about fixing it like they were about selling it! LOTS of car for the money. Great buying experience.

We bought this when after first looking at a VW Beetle. New styling of 200 is refreshing. Interior is classy in black. Lots of power with the V6; I expected there to be more torque steer during spirited driving with 283hp going to front wheels but the traction control keeps TS under control quite well. The mileage could be better but we bought anyways fully knowing what to expect. We traded in a 2010 VW Jetta TDI that had turbo lag the VW dealerships could not resolve.

I just picked up my Chrysler 200 limited and I couldn't be more pleased. The deep auburn pearl paint job, 18 inch rims, and chrome accents makes this car look and feel like a high end car. The interior is very impressive. Its loaded with features, but somehow maintains a simple and elegant look (not into cars that look like the cockpit of a fighter plane). Being someone who spends a lot of time in the car, this is much appreciated. I owned a 300M prior (which was a great car) and then went to a Ford. Now that I am back in a Chrysler I will more then likely never go back to another auto company. Great car! Great value!

Poor fit and finish

Purchased a 2012 Chrysler 200 touring three weeks ago and took it back to the dealer and traded it off. The car needed to have its door taken apart to replace the seals around te doors. Back windows leaked likea waterfall. Called Chrysler and they were no help. I did like Chrysler products but no so sure now. Especially since they don't seem to care about their customers. BEWARE!

More bang for the buck than any other mid-sized

I own a 2012 Touring model with the 3.6 Pentastar, 430n touchscreen radio and sunroof. I looked at and researched mid-sized cars for 3 months before I decided on the 200. I liked the exterior looks of the malibu, but the interior seemed dated and the 2.4l engine was too underpowered for my taste. I finally decided on the 200 for two reasons, the 3.6l Pentastar is amazing 29mpg with 283HP. It is very quiet and docile at low throttle, but give it some gas and it feels like a rockestship! This engine is an absolute joy. The second reason was price, I walked out of the dealership at $20200.00 after all rebates and negotiations.

New Chrysler fan :)

Got this car brand new (Blackberry Pearl on black interior with 17 miles) little over a month ago after getting in an accident in my Cadillac Eldorado, and have had zero problems, im very impressed! Gets good mileage (30-35 mpg hwy at 70-75 mph), comfrotable, with pretty good quality. I think its a great new gen Chrysler vehicle for anyone. Has a surprisingly sporty feel to the suspension, hugs corners very well and feels pretty flat in the process, but soft and absorbing at the same time. Very nice interior with a majority of it soft-touch materials, gets lots of compliments from passangers. I4 engine feels pretty crude, opt for V6. As driving enthusiast I find it fun to drive.

200 Touring with V6 option / Great Car!

Didn't expect to end up with this car but glad I did. Black on Black color is just plain sexy. Only had it for 2 weeks and I'm surprised at just how many people want to see it, and the positive comments I get. Great power, handling is awsome as long as you don't floor it, the car does have a fair amount of torque steering and I have really never got on it hard. Gas milage is above what Chryler says as I am averaging 31-32 miles per gallon with about 80-20 highway to city driving, but I do sit in long lines going and coming from work that avg. about 15minutes each way in stopped and very slow driving. Comfortable and quiet, with good F&F on par with this segment.

Great Car...Great Value

I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 Limited with about 3,200 miles on it. This car is a great value, loaded with features, including a great V6 engine and a quiet interior. Smooth ride, great fit and finish. Beautiful cherry red paint. I love the UConnect radio/phone. I learn something new about it every time I'm in the car. Easy to learn to operate with steering wheel controls. Great sound system. I would strongly recommend this car because of the value and what seems to be great quality.

Surprisingly good!

I was looking for something fun, good mileage, comfy, you know, everything for a good price. I was looking for a convertible to replace my current Euro Special. I heard and saw good reviews for the 200, took it for a test drive and was sold. So far, very pleased!

A Pleasant Surprise

When I started my search for a new car I was pretty sure I would end up with an Optima or Sonata. I had set my budget at 25K out the door (tax and tags included). I also made up my mind that I would drive all the comparable makes & models before I made a decision. The Chrysler 200 was not even on my list until I had driven the Optima and Sonata, found that I was not happy with the standard 2.4 liter engine and the 274hp turbo would not fit in my budget. It was the 3.6L V-6 that made me try the 200S. To my surprise it was the quickest, quietest and best handling of the bunch and it had the media center, etc. Price w/rebates? 21,510. Can't beat that - truly fun to drive.

I just bought this car a few days ago, and I really like it. The V6 is very quick and the car looks good. The seats are very comfy and I love the blue tooth "UCONNECT" The con to this car is the speakers and electronics. The speakers aren't great unless you get the Boston Acoustics System (extra money) So I plan to buy speakers elsewhere and upgrade. My mother has the 200 S Convertible with leather seats and premium sound system and its amazing. I couldn't afford something that nice so I went with the $8,000+ less model haha. But really give this a test drive if you are thinking about it

Great ride, Great value

I just bought my 2012 200 Limited yesterday and so far I am loving it. After test driving several I opted for the v6 over the 4 cylinder. That 283 hp is just hard to resist. If this car holds up over time, Toyota may have a serious competitor on their hands again from an American manufacturer. My wife is already wanting me to drive her Avalon so she can drive the 200. Fun Ride. Buy American.

Just picked up my 200 S this afternoon. Power from Pentastar 3.6 V-6 is very good. Slight torque steer as noted in a few other columns, but about the same as in a Honda or Toyota. Navigation and sound system is superb. Proud to have bought and am driving my 6th American Mopar product. (75 Duster, 97 Cirrus, 01 Concorde, 02 Intrepid, 06 300). More to come after I get this one broken in. Initial impression is very good. Glad I test drove it and bought it.

One fine vehicle

I have been waiting for my fully loaded Chrysler 200S V6 and I received it a few days ago. I have to say it was well worth the wait. The first thing I noticed was its fit and finish is outstanding, especially the interior. Next is how smooth and quiet it is at road speed. Then I put the pedal to the metal and unleashed those 283 horses, and boy, this baby flies! I read many reviews on this car, and it seems like for every positive review there was some character ripping it apart, calling it a warmed over Sebring, etc. Well, if you are in the market for one of these, the only advice I can give is take one for a drive and judge it for yourself. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Great first impression! Seats are great; ride is sporty and comfortable; throttle is responsive; sound system is great; Controls in touch screen are a breeze to use; SAT, NAV, MC is great. This car feels like a high end euro model!
