    Default Bought a '12 Limited and Thinking About Buying Another

    Hey guys I'm new to the forum. A couple of months ago my wife was in the market for a vehicle and fell in love with a black 2012 Limited with the V6. I sold my car recently as well and am now looking at a black 2012 Limited with the V6(minus NAV, boourns). I also stumbled across a white 2013 Limited with the V6 and was wondering if there's any real difference between the two? I'll be looking at both of them tomorrow. Any feedback would be welcomed. Thanks!

    Oh and if I do buy one I'll make sure to post a pic of both of them in the garage, heh.

    I'll sell you my loaded 2013 loaded limited if you're looking. If you can put up with the mystery heat coming on intermittently....

    Scoob,

    I am also a big fan of this generation of 200's. Always found design and functionality to be quite appealing, my first time behind the wheel really sealed the deal.
    Any real differences are going to come through which trim level and packages they have.
    Do some shopping around, take a peak at the used lot from your local Chrysler dealer.
    I've seen great low kilometer lease returns out there, may be a good direction.
    Best of luck.

    Look for a '13 or newer Super S package. It really looks like a different vehicle.

    DO IT!! I did it... sorta. I bought a 13V6 S touring for me, and for my wife I leased a 13V6 Limited. The ONLY problem I saw afterwards is that now - because of the smaller opening in the trunk I found it difficult to fit anything in it very large, the seats fold down etc... but our old 300 swallowed up a lot more etc... If it doesn't fit in the 200, you can't try the other car.. Guess it's why now I own a 98 Dodge Dakota as well. That's a good idea of posting up pics of them in the garage.

    I ended up picking up a black 2012 Limited with the V6 and so far it's been great. It only has 36,000kms(22,000miles) so I have some pretty good warranty coverage. I did notice when I turn the key to the ON position the check engine light blinks at me 10 times and stops. I thought it was normal, but the wife's car doesn't do it so I'll have to look into that. I'll post pics when in a little bit.

    Thanks! I also have a question about upgrading the uConnect software on the RBZ system. The website says that it has WiFi capability, but I don't see it.

    WiFi is a "dealer installed accessory" and will require a monthly service fee.
