I had to give a jump start to a co-worker with a Cirrus, took me a half hour to find the battery when it wouldn't kick over from the posts under the hood.

Great place for a box of acid, right where the car is most likely to get hit.

Haha. Had a 97 Sebring Convertible. That battery was fun. Don't forget the crappy solder points on the back of the odometer and rpm gauges. Then just to change plugs and wires you need to tear half the engine off to get the back 3 (I had the 6 cyl).

I thought the engine on those were Mitsubishi built...hence the 2.4L 4cyl put in both the Eclipse and Sebring, then then 2.5L V6?

I was able to replace the batteries in the fender just by turning the steering wheel and rotating the battery a little.

The few times I've worked on my Subaru I was pleasantly surprised how well thought out everything was. The many times I've worked on Dodges and Jeeps I wanted to kill a couple dozen engineers......and I'm an engineer.

The base engine of the 1995+ eclipse/talon/sebring/avenger was the 2.0L 140hp "A588" DOHC 16V Chrysler-made engine. The 2.5L SOHC 24V V6 "6G73" was a Mitsubishi engine.

I am not sure on the Cirrus / Stratus, but if it was a 2.4L 4 cyl, it was Chrysler built. Mitsubishi also has a 2.4L 16V 4 cylinder, but it was never used in the chrysler built cars. The 3.0L 12V minivan engine chrysler used was built by mitsubishi.
