    I think the 15, 16 & 17 model years were all the same, except for software updates and other minor fixes.

    Ours is over 5 years old, over 100K and no problems. We did have all updates and recalls performed.

    Dude they gave 2016 model a 4/5 in reliability while they give the 2015 model 1/5 , which is the worst mark.


    I never saw any car model to go like that within a year. Chrysler must have done an amazing job to fix almost all of the problems by the next model.


    a lot of Japanese sedan have the same reliability mark as 2016 Chrysler 200 model, which is awesome.

    I agree w fitru103..... Most of the issues were software related. Some early run 200's had issues w noisy struts which were covered under warranty and any motor issues were mostly the 2.4 as theyre sensitive too oil and coolant levels. I'm happy too say I've had 0 mechanical issues, just all software updates. 65k and I'm still lovin it! I plan on driving this car into the ground which hopefully will be 150k+.
    For a car that was only mfg for 2 years w no mechanical updates, I think the car is great and could've been better if they didn't scrap it too make More Jeeps. The 2015 had more options and newer tech than any other car in its category that year. It took a couple years for others too catch up. Not that it matters now. Look at the 2019 Buick GS....its a lot like my 2015, and if FCA marketed it right and stayed w it....well, so much for that.

    That is why I posted that they are all the same basic car.
    Besides, Consumer Reports always seen to fawn over japanese cars while trashing domestic's.
    Instead, we should look at those that performed "long term" tests.
    Several automotive sources tested the 2015 Chrysler 200 for over a year. Motorweek put over 21,000 miles on their long term tester and loved it.
    KBB did a long term, as well as Autotrader and Autoweek. All loved the car, minus a few quirks with the 9 speed that was either fixed or they learned to get used to this transmission.

    In my opinion, Consumer Reports is not a good source to judge any vehicle I wish to purchase.

    As fltru103 stated, the 2015 and 2016 are the same car. The 2016 just had newer software from the factory.

    Consumer Reports is a great piece of fiction. Their methods are hopelessly unscientific and should never be trusted.

    Other than routine maintenance I have had no issues it at all from my '16. I bought it new and it currently has 80k miles and is going strong. Wait...did I just jinx myself?? Anyway, I wouldn't put much stock into a Consumer Reports report. There are many other sources with much higher reliability and it's been said here already but is worth repeating, the '15 and '16 model years are great cars that I wouldn't hesitate to put any of my kids in and send them across country. It really is a shame FCA decided to invest their interests elsewhere, they could have made and sold these cars for years to come I believe.

    ...they could have... but short sighted decisions were made, FCA prefers to now follow rather than lead, and like lemmings they follow the other American branded auto makers and phase out sedans and let Japan and Europe take their market share
