Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Comments Off on 2012 Chrysler 200: What is all the hype about?
Well, take a seat in it and you’ll know! I was impressed with this luxury sedan as soon as I opened the door. The first things that stood out to me, being a detail person, were the beautiful black leather seats that were accented with double-stitched white trim. After I adjusted the power seats, I used the integrated controls on the four-spoke steering wheel to choose a radio station via uconnect (touch screen media hub).
As soon as I left the Paul Sherry dealership parking lot, I drove about a quarter mile before I hit the railroad tracks. Normally, I would slow way down before driving over railroad tracks, but I wanted to see how the Chrysler 200 handled a bumpy and uneven surface – to my surprise, it handled beautifully and perfectly smooth. When I turned onto the access road to merge onto the highway, I took the “S” curve at full speed. The [...]

Comments Off on A Comprehensive Test Drive of the Chrysler 200 S Sedan
At first sight of the Chrysler 200, it looks like a compact car that is focused on gas mileage. What will give the 200 the initial impression of the “compact car” is the size. But of course you will see the 200 at the dealership, and nine times out of ten times, it will be sitting next to the older brother, the Chrysler 300. Then I thought to myself,
“what is Chrysler doing trying to make just a fuel-efficient car?”
But just as I thought I was climbing into a compact small fuel-efficient car, I sat inside and you will quickly realize that you were completely wrong. As I sat inside, my immediate attention went straight toward luxurious features the 200 has to offer. The interior has a very clean organized layout, with a traditional hand clock to give it that “luxury” exclamation point that you expect from a Chrysler.
