Chrystal the Chrysler 200💜
I put 43000 miles in a year and a half on my 200c. I crashed it 3 times and drove like an absolutely lunatic all while being severely impaired by those fentenol pills. I was constantly slamming into curbs and went about 20000 miles without changing the oil and my faithful ride took it like a champ. If this car can take care of a crackhead junkie, I’m certain that it will take care of anyone. P.s. I no longer drive my 200 like I stole it and since I’m no longer on them blues, I’m able to Return the favor and take care of my 200.
About to reach 200,000 miles
I’m about to reach 200,000 miles and the car still runs! And the paint still looks beautiful no oxidation. I’ve only done oil changes on it and replaced one wheel bearing.
Chrysler 200S 3.6L Review in 2022
Hello all! Figured I would drop a review for anyone who is interested in purchasing this vehicle in 2022. I bought mine last year, 2015 200s w/65K miles on it. V6 engine, HID headlamps with LED fog lights, and silver 19 inch wheels all for 11.5K. I went to the dealership and test drove two vehicles that day, my Chrysler and a Hyundai Elantra. Did not care for the Hyundai, even though it was a few years newer with about 15K more miles on it. The Chrysler 200S sold me the minute I got into it and started the test drive. Not only does it look sporty on the outside, but it feels the exact same way on the inside. Now, of course I had done countless reading and research on the 200's before I bought it, and 90% of the reviews I read were negative. Transmission problems, electrical malfunctions, engines going bad. You name it, you've probably read about it somewhere on the internet. I am fairly certain I got lucky because I have had very little issues with mine since purchasing it last year. Had to replace the thermostat at about 67K miles, but other than that I have enjoyed being in this vehicle and driving it as much as I possibly can. With all that being said, I will agree that the shifting in between certain gears can be a bit annoying and sometimes rough. What I recommend is going to either a local shop or a dealership that can flash and update the PCM & ECM modules as well as do the relearn for the transmission. Night and day difference and totally worth the extra cash, especially if you drive this vehicle locally and not on the interstate daily. Downshifting is 1000% smoother, same with upshifts (Gears 3-5 seem to have the most issues for most consumers). Also had the Mopar Cold Air Intake installed to help the MPG's a bit and save some $$ on air filters. This car is also very easily modifiable, even for the most basic consumer. Overall, I would recommend buying this car in 2022 if you can find it for the right deal. Just make sure you do your research and know exactly what kind of car you are buying; the more you know the better. Currently sitting at 75K miles and I'm going to drive this car well into the 200K range if I can.
Safest car ever
I can't say too much about the car except I owned it for about 2 years. Brand new with only 14 miles. Drove it to Florida from KY a few times with no problem(except a flat tire from a pothole). Had a couple flaws I didn't like in the design; no spare tire at all and the lug/lugnut was all 1 piece. Weird to me really. Got totalled when a guy running from the police hit me head on doing about 80mph. Got out of the car without a single scratch on me. Really really shocked from that. If your looking for a safe car. THIS IS THE ONE YOU WANT!!!
One of the nicest cars ive owned.
For a 2015 it feels much more modern. Jay Passey set me up with it, and I couldn't be more pleased. I look forward to dealing with this dealership in the future
Warning...Void This Dealership
Warning......void this dealership!! Visited this dealer for a Full synthetic oil change, wheel alignment and transmission fluid flush Dec 28, 2020. After waiting almost for hours for vehicle to be serviced, the service advisor Eric informed me that only the oil change was done and that I would have to reschedule for the other work to be completed. Per the service order and technician no issues were found or noted. Once I reached home I just so happened looked at the service order and discovered that dealer put conventional oil in my vehicle (per paperwork) when I've only ran full synthetic. I contacted dealer same day to schedule appointment to have vehicle inspected, system flushed and serviced again. Vehicle was serviced the following day on Dec 29, 2020 at the dealer. Hendrick Automotive so called flushed the system by adding an additive to the oil with new oil change. Before leaving dealer I asked the service advisor if I could speak with technician who serviced my vehicle and view vehicle before leaving. While speaking to the service technician I voiced my concern of the oil mix up. Technician attempted to reassure me that the correct oil was inserted into vehicle; there were no issues and that addictive should flush out any old oil. While inspecting vehicle I noticed that the oil door cover was missing. When I questioned the technician he stated that the cover was missing when vehicle came in and that he couldn't tell me what the other technician that originally serviced my vehicle did with it and or placed it. I am positive it wasn't missing on initial visit. At that point I was beyond frustrated and didn't pursue the issue. On Jan 5, 2021 I took my vehicle into a certified transmission shop for a transmission flush. Once the technician removed the bottom belly protection shield he noticed that I had an oil leak and instructed me to take look. I was in disbelief due to the fact vehicle was just serviced. Technician advised that I take car back to dealer. I contacted dealer same day. I contacted dealer scheduled appointment for Jan 7, 2021. When I arrived at dealer advisor said she didn't see that I had an appointment even though I had a email confirmation and would need to reschedule. Fast forward, once vehicle was finally inspected for the oil leak it was discovered that the engine oil coolant housing was cracked and seal gaskets bad. To repair oil coolant it would cost almost $850. FYI I didn't have a oil leak when I took my car in for service and now 7 days later I have a cracked housing and oil leak. He is noted and common for that housing to crack and to start leaking if the oil filter cap is over torqued. I spoke Darrell the service manager about the damage the houskng that caused the leak. He asked if could follow with me in 24 hrs after he has had a chance to speak with the technician and investigate. After 72 hrs of no follow-up I begin calling the service department and what was obvious he had no intention on following up. I called 6 or more times before I was able to get Darrell on the phone. From his tone I knew dealership wasn't going to take accountability and responsibility. Service manager stated that "upon his investigation he founded that the dealership didn't cause damage to housing and that it is just wear and tear". I questioned what kind of investigation did be do without the vehicle and most importantly he wasn't there when tech serviced my vehicle. He didn't answer that question nor any of my others questions and began to get hostile. I requested that he escalate complaint to his leadership who is Todd Reed Manager of Operations. I left him multiple of messages without any follow-up as well. To be continued. *****Be aware of this dealership and thoroughly inspect your vehicle before leaving. After research this dealership (service department) has a history of poor communication, lack of integrity and no customer service*****
Most reliable car I have owned
This vehicle is in good condition and very clean car and it is the most beautiful car I have ever owned which contains many good features.
I love my 2015s.
My 200 S is at 98,000 miles doing very good. Went to look at BMW’s, decided to keep my 200 S. Got everything I need. Would buy a brand new one if they still made them.
Reliable Vehicle for Commuting
The vehicle is stylish, dependable and has current features. I love the agility in how it handles. I feel secure in knowing that I am driving a reliable vehicle that has gone through several points of inspection to insure the owner's safety.
Recent Used Car Purchase
I haven't had a chance to drive my recent used car purchase enough yet to be able to say anything about the overall reliability of the car. I guess time will tell me more about the vehicle's overall reliability.
