I waited a year of driving before I wrote this review …. Bought a 97 Chrysler cirrus at 69x miles I’m currently at 83x and I may say this car is very very reliable!! No major issues at all! Drives smooth and fast if u want a daily commute to work for cheap this is the way to go!
Very reliable car, great power and gas mileage!
Had to buy this car off of a used car lot because my 97 status caught on fire, 210k. It was a great car too. The Cirrus was not well maintained if any at all. It was a loaded LXI with the 2.5 V6. Fixed the minor things, new tires, new speakers and it is a pleasure to drive. I was driving 10 hrs one way twice a week. Got better than rated mpg, 28 mph. Has great power, comfortable for long trips, great stereo with 6 disc changer. Added a hitch and occasionally pull a lightweight trailer. Can let it sit for months, Get in and fire it up and drive 5 hours without concern. Common problems with the 2.5: valve covers leak and distributor O-ring leaks into the distributor. Fuel pump just went out at 165k. But, had been letting it set idling for heat all day for 10hrs/day for the last month too. Can't complain. New pump is $70. Looking to buy another one. The Stratus, Breeze, and Cirrus are probably some of the most reliable cars out there and are usually pretty cheap to buy. With a little maintenance, they'll run forever.
Never had a bigger pain in the @$$
I've changed the fuel filter the plugs the wires the fuel pressure regulator as well as several other new replacements my son in law has done and we cant keep it running. Now its acting as if transmission is gone out
