Overview & Reviews
The Chrysler 200 is a respectable choice for a midsize family sedan. The 200 also scores points for being one of the few midsize models to offer a convertible body style. There are many choices for a midsize sedan, however, and most continue to hold advantages in terms of fuel economy, interior room and reputations for reliability. Although it's hard to make a case for the Chrysler 200 sedan, the 200 convertible remains a good choice if you want an open-air driving experience and need seating for four.
Current Chrysler 200
The midsize Chrysler 200 is offered as a sedan and two-door convertible. The sedan comes in LX, Touring and Limited trim levels, while the convertible comes in Touring, Limited and S trims. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine generates 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque for LX and Touring models, while the Limited gets a 3.6-liter V6 making 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine also comes standard on the S trim convertible or optional on the Touring trims.
Putting the power to the front wheels is a six-speed automatic transmission.
The LX base model comes reasonably equipped with air-conditioning, keyless entry, full power accessories and cruise control. Touring models add nice-to-have extras like alloy wheels, automatic climate control, a power driver seat and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.
Limited and S convertibles get still more upscale touches including leather upholstery, heated front seats, Bluetooth and a premium audio system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. A sunroof and a navigation system are optional, while an S package for Touring and Limited sedans includes 18-inch wheels, foglamps, black exterior trim and, for the Limited, leather-trimmed bucket seats.
For the 200 convertible, Chrysler offers the choice of a fabric or steel roof. The latter is more expensive and a bit heavier, but provides better security and noise reduction.
Inside, the 200 boasts a quiet and comfortable interior with an upscale look, with sleek styling and high-quality soft-touch materials. However, the sedan's backseat and trunk are a bit on the small side. Relative to other convertibles, however, the 200 convertible's backseat is actually pretty roomy.
On the road, the Chrysler 200 provides adequate acceleration with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, but fuel economy is below average. With 110 hp more than the four-cylinder, the 3.6-liter V6 is quite energetic, delivering strong acceleration without a tremendous sacrifice in fuel economy.
Used Chrysler 200 Models
The Chrysler 200 was new for 2011. There have been only minor changes since. If you're looking for a used 200, note that the LX sedan from 2011-'13 came standard with a four-speed automatic, with the six-speed auto being optional. Aim to get a 200 LX with the six-speed if you can.
Prior to this, the 200 was known as the Chrysler Sebrin.

This car is junk!!! I will NEVER own another Chrysler vehicle AGAIN!!! I cannot believe I wasted my money on this piece of garbage!! I would rather drive a GM car any day!! This car is WAY behind in technology compared to GM and it's a very ugly car. And the trunk is teeny tiny. It looks like the back end was smashed in. I'm so glad I got rid of it and went back to GM cars.

Ok if your an older couple. Lots of blind spots. Only good for a family of four. Not good for people who are tall. Warranty work if far. My center cup holder broke and not covered within the first year. Lots of problems with mine. Not good for people with sports. No power under the gas peedle. Gustless!
Great Little Car - 2012 Chrysler 200

I bought my car from Carvana with 32000 miles. So far, in the four months of owning it, I have made no repairs. The sound system is great. Passengers constantly remark about the nice bass. It is a comfy car that handles speed bumps and pit holes fairly well. I enjoy driving it. I also have no difficulty recognizing it in a parking lot- as the lovely white paint is still in great condition.

I bought it is with 18 k miles and it has been running great! A lot of people like the car and it does well during snow in Utah. The v6 is great and pretty fast... And the AWD IS GREAT during long snow days.
missed the mark - 2015 Chrysler 200
By james - December 16 - 7:24 am
I never was a Chrysler guy.. nore imagined me considering one.. after all my research I kept going back to this Chrysler 200 limited just something about its look but price point.. now first my intial test drive was a good experience.. The car has the means to fit anyones needs..Now I do wish this car had more room to breath with power the 4cyl 2.4 def has the get up an go but the 9 speed tranny really holds it back and keeps it clunky more than 40 per of the time.. taking corners can be alittle sketchy but overall not to bad.. road noise was good and it glides over imperfections in the road..I really wasn't a thrilled owner after 3 weeks of having the car and at barely 600 miles I had to send car in for a new tranny and headliner due to it buckled and creased front to back on driver side.. I was startingto think this was a bad purchase.. but I took a breath and figured all new cars have there hickups from time to time.. but now with the new tranny in I started to notice even more roughness with the tranny esp when coming to a stop it seems to want to buck u around like a bull at a rodeo now Chrysler says this is normal for this style and not to worry.. kinda makes you wonder with that response..now entering the car can be tricky esp if your a tall person.. I'm only 5'7 and have hit my head couple times already.. the a beams are very oversized and can block your view.. fuel economy isn't bad currently getting 33.6 highway so not far off from there projected 36.. rear seats and legroom.. this Is where your eyes can play tricks til you actually get in.. and tend to notice foot room is bare minimal and comfort lacks just alittle...My overall rating on this would be 6 out of 10.. style is great but I'm very unsure if Chrysler should stick with there 9 speed tranny.. For the money not bad but sometimes i wonder am i really getting what i truly thought i was.. guess only time will tell..

On the highway it rides like a luxury sedan, around town it's adequate. Getting in and out of the car is perfect, not too low or high.

First 4200 miles car serviced for hard starting and two times for transmission failure. Before 6000 miles got recall to replace entire trans-axle unit however, Chrysler advised it would be six months minimum before providing replacement unit. My car could not be driven but Chrysler had plenty of units for their "state of the art" assembly line. After much ado we managed to shorten time to about six weeks. 10/23/15 received recall on connector which may stall engine or shift tranny to neutral while underway with no warning. Chrysler has known of this since 2/13/15 according to NHTSA but still no part to correct this dangerous situation. Based on conversations and performance I am convinced their priority is assembly and sales- not the well being of those who purchased their product in good faith. This has been my worst new auto experience in my 70 years of life . Sorry for the wordiness but this is the SHORT version.

Be careful not to speed, was on the highway, and have to use cruise control so I won't speed. Smooth car.
