I Love My New-to-me New Yorker
By arune on
1994 Chrysler New Yorker 4dr Sedan
I spend a lot of time in my vehicles and want comfort for long days.
The NYer has the most comfortable drivers seat ever!
While I love and have mostly driving European cars, I am a bit old for getting in and out of MGBs, Fiats and Alfas.
The bouncing is not a joy and performance is not - at my age - all that important (but this car has a lot).
i bought this car with 240,000 km on the clock, which sounds like a lot but averages out to less than 10K be year.
Well maintained, the few minor blemishes were easy to fix - a broken power antenna, replacing the broken front marker lights, and such.
Aluminum rims for $60 ea.
Where to start.
The external looks, the European style cab, a wonderful heater, good get up and go, comfort for all on board, and at a purchase pirce of $1200, no payments and cheap insurance.
The computer is nice to have - especially with the km left in the tank ( 250+ km one way with no service stations!). Smoothest ride ever, and a huge trunk.
Did I mention the comfort?
The only think I miss is some storage inside the cabin.
Yes, one can use the trunk, but in northern Canada one carries a lot of safety and emergency stuff and in the worst case scenerio, the trunk is not where you want that to be.
I am tiniting the windows to protect the stuff now stashed on the back floor.
All that room and no storage save the glove compartment and door pockets.
Road noise is a bit higher than anticipated.
Those are minor!
