To Any Chrysler Cirrus Owners or Dealers,

I have a 1999 Chrysler Cirrus. I will agree with others in the beginning the car looks great, drive great but the problems with the car is unbareable.

* I have also had to put sensors in for the car to change gears.

* For a 1999 that was only a year old with 52,000 miles and one owner. the A/C quit on me within a year. the switch to turn the heat/ac from high to low, now only works on High. So not to burn up during the winter I have to turn the heat to medium warm/cool. Great Heater by the way. but I like AC too you know!

* I had to get the 2 engine fans replaced

* And now, the motor is just GONE. Shot..Over Heated. Driving in ATL is not a good experience when white smoke is coming out during rush hour. just after I had gotten the car out 2 months beforehand.

I am wondering should I purchase a used motor or just give up. the money I am putting into this car, I could use on my other car. But the car is so nice and I want to give it another try; however, I can not continue to put that kind of money into this car. I do know that all cars are going to have its problems even when you keep the regular check up on it.

But D*mn. from reading all the post, I am beginning to think the car looks good and that is it.

What would any of you do. Buy a use motor and run the risk of more problems or the used motor going out? or just sale it?

One Mechanic just laughed at me and said Chryslers are the last car he would purchase because of its ongoing problems.

For four years my husband and I constantly replaced sensors and distributors, main computers and had preventative maintenance work done to keep our ’95 Cirrus up and running. We spent thousands of dollars on this car and it drove like a dream up until the morning it just quit running at 3 am while my husband was coming home from work. At 3 am I had to get out of bed, climb in the truck (no easy feat when your 7 1/2 months pregnant), drive 18 miles in 15 degree temperatures to go get my husband before he froze to death. lol

The only thing I admire more than the way these cars drive, is the way they die. This car can die so smoothly, that at first you don’t even realize what’s happened. They are great cars if you have a deep billfold.

After we had to have the local towing company tow the car for the third time in a year and a half we finally decided to sell it for what we could get.

If you can get a deal on an engine I’d say buy it, get the car running and then sell it for what you can. That was our plan, up until we couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it. We eventually gave up and sold ours to an overconfident shade tree mechanic for $500.00.

The man was confident he could fix it and that he was getting a deal. We tried to warn him otherwise. I still get phone calls from people trying to buy the car from me. Apparantly the car is still sitting out in his yard with my number on the windshield because he can’t get it running.

We took what little we made and put towards an Impala. It’s not brand new, but it actually drives and handles better than the Cirrus.

Its really a shame tho, I loved just about everything about that car. except changing the battery. lol
