I am a true chrysler fan. My first car was a chrysler and it was great. It had over 200,000 miles on it when I sold it a couple of years ago and got a 2011 200. The only complaint I have is the shifting gears. It slams into gears sometimes so after seeing the new 200 at a car show, I was super impressed. I read up on them and got mixed reviews so instead of making a decision I would regret, I rented a 2015 chrysler for a few days to test it out. It was awesome. I am 5'5" and I had no problem getting in and out of the car. Also the 9 speed automatic transmission helps to make smooth shifting. The interior is super comfy too. The interior design and standard rear view camera are good too. I was pleased with the car and being a chrysler fan, I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to pay a fortune for a decent quality car. My dad owns an infiniti and this is way better. I found no problems with anything. I don't know what all the petty complaints are about but this is a great car. I am looking forward to saving up to get the new 200.

Fantastic Value and Fun To Drive

This is a very early review as far as ownership is concerned, but I'm 100% pleased with my purchase. I've owned this 2015 Chrysler 200C AWD for 10 days. Many of the reviews are accurate depictions of what you can expect from this car. And as other sources have remarked, the 200 IS the "poor man's Lexus (or Cadillac, etc.)." But that's just fine with me. It's a great value for the budget-conscious individual that wants as much of a luxury experience as they can get for their money. The features (in a fully loaded 200C, for example), rival that of a number of high-end midsize sedans that have a much heftier price tag; and it never fails to compete aesthetically. In Lunar White Tri-Coat Pearl, complete with chrome accents, premium lighting, and 19 inch aluminum wheels, my 200C always turns heads. Yes, it's described as a "family sedan," but as a single, 32 year old male with no children, I find the car is ideal for a young professional that wants to upgrade to something a bit more "serious" than the sportier, louder options that I've selected in my 20's. Calling the 200 "a stretched Dodge Dart," is not insulting, and is actually just the move I want to make. Working at a local bank in a very "affluent" community, I now own a car that I can confidently park next my manager's and clients' Mercedes Benzes, and Lexuses. As a matter of fact, some of those other sedans don't even come in AWD. The Chrysler 200C is fun to drive. It has a ton of power, yet maintains a very smooth ride. The sport mode, generates noticeable difference, but not major enough for me to use it regularly. It feels solid on the road, and handles most twists and turns securely. Sudden or sharper turns are not as stable, but those aren't a normal occurrence for me. Its interior is much quieter than its predecessor, but overall, not THAT quiet in comparison to some of its competitors. You'll sacrifice some fuel efficiency with the V6, vs. the 4 cylinder. I tend to drive more aggressively, so I can't say that I'm getting the best economy. I suspect that with some changes to my driving habits, fuel consumption will improve. When fully operating, the SafetyTech features are a godsend and tend to inspire confidence and security on the road. However, I am experiencing a malfunction with the Forward Collision Warning and the Adaptive Cruise Control; each designed for crash avoidance. This is troubling, since the car is new, but I have no doubt that the dealership will be able to fix it. I hope that it's not and ongoing issue. I don't care for the gear shift being a dial; it seems awkward to me and takes some getting used to. Personally, I would have preferred the traditional knob, but with all-wheel drive, leather, Nav, UConnect, SiriusXM, heated and ventilated seating, a heated steering wheel, remote and push start, keyless entry, more than adequate storage space, rain sensing wipers, park assist, proximity sensors, a top safety rating and a suite of other benefits, this is hands-down, the best vehicle purchase I've ever made; including the older 2011 model Chrysler 200 Limited. The styling is timeless and makes for a vehicle worth holding on to beyond my 2 year average for trading in. Other quirks, aside from the gear shifter are the absence of lighting in the footwells while driving, and the missing self-diagnostics tool. The footwell is pitch black at night, and is only lit while the doors are open. Yet there's ambient lighting in the door bins and housing spaces for the door handle. The previous 200 models allowed you to run a self-check at the touch of a button, and displayed the status of each system monitored without you having to scroll through different screens on your own. In fact, I think the diagnostic info should update wirelessly and be visible via the Concierge app, the Owners website and in an email summary. This would be more congruent with all of the tech that's currently available in this year's model. I'm 6'3", and the rearview mirror seems to be and obstruction compared to my 2011 model. I think the seats may have gone lower in that model. The door frame also interferes with my line of sight, as I need to hunch down to view certain things; a house number/address for instance. It seems bulkier. Overall, this car is still a definite "GO." And spring for the fully loaded C trim. It's worth every penny! Get one and have fun!!!

I recently purchased the 4 cylinder with the 9 speed automatic transmission. So far there is nothing that I don't love about this car. The performance is solid and in my opinion the exterior styling is tops in its class. This car is a great value...terrific gas mileage. I went on a 900 mile trip this last weekend and got 37 mpg on the highway.

I have owned a few Chrysler's in the past and have had many issues with those vehicles. I was not sure about getting another one but after test driving the 200 C I gave it another try. I have only had this vehicle for a week now but it has impressed me. Great MPG's, great looks and lots of features. The only thing I have found that concerns me are the brakes. They feel less than what is needed for the vehicle. I have been driving a Ram Quad Cab for several years before this so I am use to strop braking. The brakes on this car seem to be less than what might be needed. I am hoping it is just me having to get use to them. The interior is great with everything accessible without reaching for it. I am 6'2" and there is plenty of leg room for me while driving.

I'm 73 now I have owned Chryslers since 1975 and never NEVER HAD ANY TROUBLE OUT ANY OF THEM.A Month ago Aug 2014 I bought a New 2015 Chrysler 200-C . It would take a week to write a complete review of this car This is the finest Chrysler I have EVER owned.Has the new small tiger shark engine. It has a better pickup than a 6 r. I got all the extras on this one...If you don't give this a test drive, you will be sorry. I went to Iowa and Southern Illinois. Got 38 to 40 miles a gallon.

What a wonderful car! We bought a fully-loaded 200C with V6 & sunroof. It has adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, navigation, the works (everything but AWD). Averaging 28 mpg on the V6, too! Our only complaints are a ripple in the windshield that Chrysler has been notified about & hitting the light control knob with my knee. Otherwise, it has a silky smooth ride, is extremely comfortable on the road, very quiet, and has exceptional acceleration. This car gets a lot of attention! Many ask, "This is a CHRYSLER?" We love the sweeping hood & trunk line - gives it a sports car look. The panoramic sunroof is sweet! This is a lot of car for the money, too. Definitely worth checking out!

There is no comparison between this car and the previous Chrysler 200. With 6 cyl. engine I get great performance and better gas mileage than a lot of smaller cars. Over 31 mpg overall. Ride is great, car is quiet on the road and handles great. I suggest that people should test drive one of these before making up your mind on a new car.

I have owned my 200S 2.4L 4Cyl for a bit over 2 months. I like this car more every day. The handling is fantastic for a FWD car it is responsive and really awesome in Sport mode. I have the Ceramic Blue exterior with the Blue full leather interior, exclusive to the S model and I think it is sexy as well as dashing. This car is comfortable as my daily commute is 45 mins each way. This car is quick, if you get the 2.4 revved it will get up and go, if you place it in Sport mode it will go that much quicker as the transmission shifts are more aggressive in Sport mode. This car has a great surround system, awesome Voice recognition a huge screen for the backup camera. When comparing specs with other models in the same class this car had the highest side impact ratings that I saw. The Trunk is large and easy to load. The only thing I miss from my last vehicle is the memory seats with easy access drivers seat. I am getting used to manually moving the seat again but it is something that I would expect on a car with this many options and I know that it is available on the 200C. I currently have 2000 miles logged in my 200S and am really enjoying this fine Chrysler automobile. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a car that looks good, drives great, is quiet and gets great gas mileage. I am currently getting 26 miles to the gallon but the average continues to climb as the car breaks in. I also spend 30 of my 45 minute commute on the high speed toll way at 0ver 80 miles an hour. I looked at cars for a year before buying this one, I looked at every thing from a Jeep renegade to KIA Sportage to a KIA Soul to a Doge Dart to a KIA Optima before deciding on My Chrysler 200Ssssss.

Just bought the first one a month ago Chrysler 200C AWD. Watched youtube videos prior to this on the 3.6L V6 model. They looked great. Looked at them couple different places - couldnt find the Deep Red we wanted until finally. Technology package. Its worth it! Never seen a car that can steer you in the lane (lane sense) and keep you a predetermined distance behind vehicles in front you using ACC active cruise control. It will even break for you if a car slows down to turn! It takes a lot of the chore out of driving. But man the power of this V6 295HP engine and the throaty sound of the dual exhaust is awesome. My wife even drives it sporty compared to the Jeep Grand Cherokee we had. Ventilated seats are nice and the 2nd LCD screen is cool with the nav and digital speedometer. Not sure if we needed the all wheel drive but get the tech package! The parking assist will park the car for you as well in parallel or perpendicular parking! Very affordable car. Get the C model it costs a little more but is more luxury feel but still has everything the S model has. Sport mode on the electronic shifter which is a dial. This car beats camry or accord hands down! Very affordable car.
