Pros: Comfort and apperance
Cons: Visability takes some getting used to.
Advice: Rent one for a road trip that you go on.... I rented one twice in the span of six months and that is what convinced me to buySmooth ride, powerful engine... not a quick car but a great cruiser. Lots of space and very comfortable. Lots of amenities available.
Pros: Roomy & lots of trunk space.
Cons: Gas milage & road noise.
Advice: NoneGas milage not as good as the Concord I traded. Road noise has not improved. The Chrysler service department is the best!
Pros: The overall body shape.
Cons: The STUPID grille shape. The 98/99 oval grille looked MUCH better!!!
Advice: Be careful which dealer you buy from. After purchase care will make a big difference.This is an incredibly roomy car. It swallows an entire basketball team wiht no effort at all. It handles exceptionally well for such a large car. It never feels or looks as big as it really is, even sitting next to smaller cars like the Crown Vic or Lincoln Town Car. The car goes very well, although it's definitely no racer. It cruises effortlessly all the way to 125mph if you want to try it. The handling is excellent for such a large car, although it still plows on corners like any front driver. If you have a large family or just like a lot of interior room, this is the car.
Cons: The lack of a volume indicator in the radio
Advice: try it you might think it's bigGreat for a lot of people. The LXi is the one to go for inless you have the extra cash for the limited, but the Lxi is a great sporty sedan with room for three adults in the back seat.
Pros: Performance, styling, climate control, steering wheel radio control.
Cons: Lack of adjustable steering wheel.
Advice: Go for the LXi over the LX . The extra performance & luxury are worth the money.In this day of rising car costs, I was extremely impressed with the price of the LXi when compared to other makes/models. You get a lot more for your money. Style, comfort and quality at a comparatively reasonable price. Lack of an adjustable steering wheel is the only thing that keeps driver comfort from being perfect. Visibility has been sacrificed for styling but with a bit of driving this is easily adapted to.
