Chrysler has had a year of ups and downs, what with the difficulties that all car manufacturers have been suffering from with the global recession and so called "economic downturn". Whilst the car industry and Chrysler have definitely taken more than their fair share of knocking, it seems now that the industry is beginning to crawl out for the dark, with car sales rising and stress levels markedly declining.
If you are planning on buying a new or used Chrysler, then now is probably a good time to act. After all, the rock bottom prices can't stay around for long, and as the market improves the best bargains will no doubt start to become few and far between. It is a sad fact that the prices will match what the general public can afford to pay, and that figure is starting to rise.
Picking your Chrysler comes down to four main models. These current models are the ones still in production, and as such are the easiest to find replacements bits and parts for. You may end up paying a little more, but at least these newer models are more fuel efficient than the old ones. After all, you could get a used Chrysler cruiser, but the fuel economy is practically non extant, and this modern day and age means practicality needs to overrule sheer good looks.
If you love the muscular good looks of Chrysler's executive car, then why not search out a Chrysler 300C. It probably won't be the most subtle car on the forecourt, but few people could deny that this beast is one hell of an attention grabber Autel MaxiSys Pro. It is all about the looks with this one, from the huge front grill and classic shape right through to the smart leather interior Autel MaxiPRO MP808TS.
If big and brash isn't quite your thing, but you still want to drive a Chrysler, then you may need to consider the Sebring. Smart and sophisticated, yet with a certain stylised touch, this model comes both as a saloon and as a racy Cabrio. Now, I will be honest... the saloon version of this car is ever so slightly "everyday". I am seeing this as an advantage, however - your car will always been aesthetically pleasing, but manages to attain that balance between good looking and too flash. Here is a model that won't make car addicts feel inferior, but won't have them sneering either.
Of course, if you care more about size and practicality than smart good looks, then there is only one Chrysler for you - the Grand Voyager. This is a goliath of a vehicle, and is designed to make life as easy as possible for you and your family. It may not be a stunner, but this model more than makes up for it in useful little touches and handy extra features. The best feature, in my humble opinion, is the funky twisting/rotating seats, which can be positioned around a central table for the rear 5 seats.
