    Not every vehicle is for everyone. Plus, it has a great ride. As for as the 9 speed gearbox being clunky, maybe they should dump the Germans ZF , and get with Ford and GM on their new 10 speed auto. I just rented a yesterday. I imagine a rental would be even worse, with different drivers wreaking havoc with the transmission learning in the software.

    The Chrysler is not long for this world. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne has announced that his car company is getting out of the business of building small and midsize sedans, partly because truck and SUV sales are booming for the company right now, and this move will allow Marchionne to pour more resources into those profitable beasts.

    But does this car really deserve the axe? Even though styling is subjective, there are few that can fault the for having a boring design. Even inside, the remains stylish, with simple center stack design that is pleasant to look at it. But Sergio was right. The raking at the rear end of the car makes ingress and egress into the backseat a chore for a full-size adult.

    Rear seat legroom is decent in the at The is also slightly skinnier than cars like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, which means the rear bench seat is even smaller across. Driving the , even the V6-powered all-wheel-drive version like we did, is not all that enjoyable of an experience. This car feels a bit heavy and likes to push and roll through corners.

    It does provide a comfortable ride and muted interior, and for this segment, those are much more important than tight handling. Still, with nearly ponies pouring out from the V6, the is plenty fast and gets up to speed with little drama. Having nine cogs does help with fuel economy, though, as we averaged about 25 mpg in our week with the car. According to the EPA, the S with all-wheel drive should achieve 18 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway.

    There are quite a few buttons on the wheel including those mounted on the back side, but they are easy enough to figure out and get used to. Like many FCA products these days, the uses a rotary shift knob, which works well at freeing up space, allowing all the buttons to be nice and big and still have ample space around them.

    This car is miles ahead of that one, and it offers expressive design that few of its rivals can match. So maybe a name change would have been the best thing for the new , after all, it was completely different car. So why did this car fail? If Marchionne thinks the designers were dummies, who signed off on the design? Was he in charge then? If so its his fault. This seems really shortsighted.

    Eventually gas prices will go up and once again Chrysler will struggle and flirt with bankruptcy. Carmakers need to learn from history. Gas prices will go up again. Its a decent car that gave you a lot of options and bang for your buck. As for as the 9 speed gearbox being clunky, maybe they should dump the Germans ZF , and get with Ford and GM on their new 10 speed auto. It seems like Chrysler has always had problems with transmissions. With these new systems, maybe they need to have better computer programmers or engineers to fine tune the performance.

    Fit issues and rattles soon revealed themselves in this car. The the quality gremlins still persist at Chrysler…. I just rented a yesterday. I was excited to try it because I think the exterior is one of the best designs on the market. Interior is attractive too, but not the rental car I had — it has some cheap plastics on the instrument panel and in other high-touch areas. What struck me about the car was the transmission. Holy moly that thing is a royal mess.

    Shocking that some approved this thing for sale. It lurches at crawling speeds, refuses to downshift when coasting to a stop giving the sensation that the car is fighting the braking and pushing you.
