Model News

Following its debut in 2011, the Chrysler 200 in both sedan and convertible guise is little changed for 2012.


Value Writeup

The 2012 Chrysler 200 offers much to like for buyers interested in a stylish, economical, and inexpensive mid-size sedan. Things like a 283-hp V6, a true 4-seat convertible, and still inexpensive prices mean that power- and luxury-seekers on a budget can have theirs, too. Entry price is below $19,000 and that buys plenty of car.


Model Highlights

Chrysler's 200 soldiers on in 2012, as both a 4-door sedan and 2-door convertible.

Sedans are offered in LX, Touring, Limited and S models. All but the S are powered by a 2.4L 16-valve 4-cylinder that makes 173 horsepower and 166 ft-lb of torque. It's efficient too--the EPA estimates it's capable of 30 mpg on the highway. A 3.6L V6 is standard on the S and optional on all trims, and it makes 283 horsepower. The LX utilizes a 4-speed automatic transmission, while the rest of the model range is fitted with a 6-speed automatic, with AutoStick driver interactivity for clutchless manual shifting.

Convertible 200s come in Touring, Limited and S trims, with the Touring powered by the 2.4L engine and the Limited and S models drawing on the 3.6. All convertibles come with the 6-speed automatic with AutoStick.

The 200 LX is solidly equipped with anti-lock brakes, power everything, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat and a 4-speaker CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input. Safety features include standard traction control and a host of airbags. Touring trim adds automatic headlights, aluminum wheels, a 6-speaker CD stereo, satellite radio, a power driver seat, automatic climate control and a tire pressure monitor.

The Limited model features 18-inch wheels, remote start, a 40GB hard-drive-based audio system with 6.5-inch touch-screen display, Bluetooth and heated leather seats. The top-of-the-line S trim includes Boston Acoustics speakers, special leather seating, a tire-pressure monitor, and more.

The Touring sedan can be outfitted with a power sunroof. On the Limited, a Media Center 730 with a hard drive, navigation system and Bluetooth is optional.

Summary
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Sebring and 200 vehicles manufactured June 28, 2011, through December 13, 2012; model year 2011-2013 Dodge Avenger vehicles manufactured June 25, 2011, through January 14, 2013; model year 2011-2012 Dodge Nitro vehicles manufactured June 17, 2011, through December 15, 2011; and model year 2011-2012 Jeep Liberty vehicles manufactured June 17, 2011, through August 15, 2012. Electrical over-stress of a resistor in the occupant restraint control module may lead to the non-deployment of the active head restraints during a rear impact collision.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating the deployment of the active head restraints , their non-deployment could increase the risk of injury.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will flash the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N38.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
