Chrysler is a well-known automotive brand headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan. There are two elements to Chrysler as a whole. The Chrysler car brand, and Chrysler Corp, the actual automotive manufacturer. There are several Chrysler cars drivers have loved over the years. But they have also gifted drivers some truly awful vehicles. Nowadays, the Chrysler brand has dwindled down to a few models, a mere shadow of what it once was.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what the Chrysler brand is overall. On one hand, you have a luxury car like the 300C and on the other hand, a plain minivan like the Voyager. There have been a decent share of failures for the Chrysler automotive brand. Cars like the Prowler were ill-conceived and caused a lot of confusion among consumers. Then you had cars like the Sebring sedan that were cheaply built. We looked back at some of the worst Chrysler cars drivers just shouldn’t buy at any dealership.
20: Chrysler 200
What happens when you spend almost a billion dollars in research and development on a sedan? You get the Chrysler 200 and its corporate cousin, the Dodge Dart. Chrysler needed a sedan that would make a splash, and the 200 was supposed to do exactly that. Advertised with the tagline “Imported from Detroit”, the Chrysler 200 had a lot of hype (via Motor Biscuit).
The problem was that consumer tastes had shifted toward crossover SUVs. The Chrysler 200 was lacking in almost every major area. The interior wasn’t as refined as the competition was, and there were plenty of reliability issues. Needless to say, the Chrysler 200 was quietly retired after a short period on the market.
