- Great looks, roomy, well laid out interior, power, smooth ride, value
- brakes overheat very easily, handling. Leather seems stiff like vinyl.
This is a company/fleet vehicle I use for work. I've driven it 6000 miles in about 2 months including a long roadtrip to Las Vegas. The first thing that comes to mind is the great value this car offers for the dollar. It is a LOT of room and comfort for a very modest price. The looks are great and I think will become classic years from now. The ride is smooth and I've had trouble accurately calculating mileage but I seem to get up to 24 or 25mpg on the road with the 6-cylinder engine. That is great and much better than the Magnum AWD I had. The power is great and you will have no trouble merging on the interstate. You can take a car full of people anywhere comfortably and the trunk is huge. I put bags for 3 people and my grandmother's wheelchair on top on one trip.
The sound system is really great, too. I've noticed that in my last two Chryslers. So far I've not had a single problem which is unusual for my fleet cars. My only detraction is the brakes and handling. I was coming down Monarch pass and the brakes began overheating within minutes which surprised me. I simply downshifted and used the transmission to compensate somewhat. A friend with one warned me about handling on snow, too. I plan to get snowtires to handle that. As an owner of several BMW's I evaluate handling a bit more severely than others perhaps. But for a big cruiser to be used the way most people drive it's a great car. Plus I could buy two of these for the price of my M Coupe, so the value is very high in my book. The bottom line for me was that I didn't expect a lot when I got the car other than great looks and roomy. However, I've been pleasantly surprised at most everything with the car. So given the price and the fact I got more than I expected, I maxed out the value rating. This is a great roomy cruiser that is very satisfying.
