If you're looking for a mid-size sedan with a stylish and well-appointed interior, a powerful V6 engine and a decidedly European driving attitude, the 2012 Chrysler 200 deserves a nice, long test
Those looking for a roomy rear seat may find more to like in the Nissan Altima or even larger Hyundai Sonata. The 200's base price may look appealing, but start to add options and the price tag qu
Beyond all the visible improvements over the Sebring, the 2012 Chrysler 200 shines most brightly in the way it drives. Equipped with Chrysler's latest 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, the 200 can rocket to highway speeds or pass slow traffic with confidence. Smooth, quiet and surprisingly fuel-efficient, the V6 is a far better choice than the buzzy 2.4-liter 4-cylinder. Chrysler spent considerable cash revamping the 200's suspension, and it was money invested well. The 200 drives beautifully, corners with enthusiasm, and absorbs bumps without ef

"I love this car except for the lurching transmission issues that I am having. Two years ago I purchased a brand new Dodge Grand Caravan that began having transmission issues six months after I purchased it. I had it in the shop at least four to five times before I finally gave up and traded it for this car. Now, this car is doing the same thing! It happens when I speed up or slow down. I have already had it in the shop once. I was told that it only neede a "software update". What?! It didn't work! Other than that, the car is beautiful and rides like a dream. Unfortunately, I don't feel like I can keep this car because Chrystler can't seem to fix their transmission problems. I took a loss on the van and I apparently have to take a loss on this car too. Not a financially wise decision to purchase this car. Trading as soon as I can and it won't be fore another Chrystler!"

"We rented a Chrysler 200 for 4 days while our Prius was being repaired. VERY nice interior, and I loved the front seats' firmness in the right places. Big trunk with a pass-through for skis or a 2x4. Absolutely silent interior - more quiet than our Prius! I tried a few hard turns,(just for grins) and the tires never squealed. This was the most "Japanese-feeling" Chrysler product I've ever driven. It did not feel or drive like a Chrysler. Great sound system, with real knobs for volume and tuning - hurrah! The car came with 3/8 tank of gas; we returned it 100 miles later with 1/4 tank. Not scientific, but mileage seemed pretty good. It had enough power with the 4 cylinder, but I'd want the V6. :)"
