We hadn't originally planned on looking at cars today, but the friend that was with us was interested so we popped in and had a cursory look at a bunch of vehicles, including a more in-depth look at an upoptioned 200.
Preface- we didn't drive anything. We do not plan to drive anything until we've sat in everything we're interested in first. And enough car salesmen are idiots that when we encounter one that isn't it's a nice surprise. Today was not one of those days.
The 200 was a dark red metallic one with tan/cream leather seats and the 3.6. The interior was quite nice- only hard plastic seemed to be on the console and probably the kick panels and possibly the lower door panels- most of the interior was padded and felt nice. The driving and accessory controls were easy to reach, and the rear viee mirror was able to be adjusted up high enough that it didn't block my forward view (I'm 6'2" tall). The tilt/teli steering wheel was also positionable to where I needed it, and since this particular one didn't have a sunroof I had plenty of headroom without lowering the seat all of the way down.
My wife had enough legroom in the rear passenger's seat behind me that she felt it would be comfortable for long trips. She also liked the armrest cupholder and the trunk passthrough. Unfortunately the center console failed the, "purse test," as her purse didn't fit inside, but not many cars pass that even with her smallest purse.
We have a generally favorable opinion of the car at this point. I plan to look at Mopar dealer-installed aftermarket options for it though, as I really want something more exciting looking. It is definitely better than its immediate JX predecessor.
I was disappointed to see some damage to the right front fender on this car, it looked like something rubbed against it on the truck and wore a nickel-sized hole down to the metal and slightly deformed it there.
They had no Avengers with the 3.6 that we could find. The one 2.4 we sat in was nice enough, cream cloth seats and simpler radio, but it would have been nice to have seen a higher trim package one.
