I bought an 04 Automatic in Feb. 07 - couldn't find a spot here to review an 04, so here I am. 8 MONTHS LATER: STEERING - quick response, like a sports car. COMFORT - I purposely chose cloth seats - the ergonomic design which supplies perfect back support is GREAT, especially on long distance drives. Feeling is that you are higher up than you really are, almost like a truck or SUV. TURNING - I can make a 3-point turn so quickly & easily, it's a breeze! VISION - perfect, no blind spots. Parking is effortless. COMPASS & AMBIENT TEMP GAUGE - LOVE 'EM! Can never get lost, even on unknown back country roads! POWER - this 2.4 L is 50% bigger than my old Honda I traded in, and ZIPPY! TRANS. - although Auto. the ability to downshift so easily and smoothly is a pleasure, especially on steep down-grades. LOOKS - SPORTY - ZIPPY - PROUD TO DRIVE! I just turned 67, and feel like a TEENAGER AGAIN! At the risk of repeating myself - LOVE IT - LOVE IT - LOVE IT !! THANK YOU, CHRYSLER, THANK YOU! Tom H.
While the body style seems to scream "not comfortable, awkward" this is far from it. I was surprised at how comfortable the interior was. The seats were easy to adjust thanks to the electric adjustment. The passenger was just as comfy, while the electric adjustment was only resered for the driver. The mileage was not the greatest but much better than my older vehicle. The only drawback after several months driving it was the engine noise.It was a little noisier than a new car should emit giving the impression of a much smaller engine than what is actually present even though it touts itself as having a Mercedes made motor. My only complaint is that it comes equipped with Sirius/Xm sattellite radio. While this is not a bad otion to have if you abhorre commercials on regular radio, the dealer doesn't give you any info at all on how long you have to listen or what you do once the initial subscription expires. I would have loved even a single sentence on this, alas, there is non.
I bought this car for my son and everything went wrong with this car. Here is the list all within 2 years. 1. The rear tail light 2. AC went out 3. Engine stop working had to replace. 4. Transmission stop working (told them to come get it). I refused to pay a car not and work on this car. I could have bought a fixer upper ride. If I really wanted to work on a car.
