"I got this car back in 2011 as a graduation present from my dad. I absolutely love this car! I have drove it in the West Virginia winters and have had absolutely no problems from it even though it is a front wheel drive. Even drove it during the harsh winter of 2013! Just put some weight in the back and this baby went like a tank!. Drives amazingly. Has excellent take off. I have calculated that i get 22 mph (i live in the countryside) Have had to replace a number of things, but thats normal for a 16 year old car. The con is my axels like to pop ALL THE TIME!!! Found out it has to do with the way they are made, so other than that its an amazing car."

"In spite of the age and the problems lately, I love this car. It has good pickup and is easy to drive and I love all the options that are on it. I bought it from my sister and she loved it too. I am sad because it is getting old with high mileage and starting to nickel and dime me a lot. The driver seat belt is too short for a chubby person and the shifter hits anything over the height of a pop can that is in the cup holders when in park. But those are minor irritants."

"bought this car with 58000 miles on it from an old lady who didn't drive much 4 months ago. since day one we have had nothing but problems, Blown compressor, bad body control module, bad control arms, faulty brakes, poor exhaust. we bought the car for $2200 Ended up spending nearly $4000 in repairs. You would think after doing all the repairs including new tires the car would drive better but surely did not. it would shake and make a grinding noise while we drove it. after all money spent we were not satisfied so we took it to the best mechanic in town, he did a full thorough inspection of the vehicle and said the reason why the car is acting that way is because there are parts missing from the frame. they had rusted out completely. Unfortunately I did not see it at first, nor did many mechanics due to the previous person who sold the car painted over it well to hide it. The mechanic said the car was not safe to drive, should not be on the road at all in that condition.. so basically I spent $6000 for a car that I can not drive. So to anyone out there thinking of buying this car, DON"T DO IT!! save your money for something better. Don't make the same terrible mistake I made.."

"I'm a British expat, and loathed the idea of moving to the US and being stuck with my wife's car- american autos are thought to be of quite poor quality on the Continent, and I hate automatics. All I can say is, this car has changed my mind. If it grows on me any more, I might need chemotherapy. So much better looking than modern bulky sedans. 13yo, we've owned it for 7. *two* minor mechanical faults in all that time outside of regular maintenance (Bosch multipoints for the win!) and I blew $2.5k on a complete rocker-panel / underbody rebuild/respray due to rust (previous owner obviously bottomed it out hard on something). It looks beautiful, the interior is holding up just lovely, the acceleration is smooth and pulls well mid-range if not starting, and the ride feels as sleek as the car looks. The 6G73 mitsubishi engine/transmission combo on this chassis, with 25-28mpg, plus these looks, makes it very unlikely I will buy another car until this one gives."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have owned my 1998 Cirrus for approx. a year and a half now, and it is a great car. Good milage, very comfortable, and very good performance wise. My only issue is that when you accelerate rapidly, it hesitates when shifting from 1st gear to 2nd, and again from 2nd to 3rd. Other than that, it is a great car, especially if you are looking for something reliable or a bit older."
