This is a 2.5 turbo automatic convertible. It takes turns like it's on rails. It has power off the line and on the highway. It really handle well, and idle smoothly. These 2.5 liter engines are just about bulletproof. Automatic shifting is smooth. Just love the car. Seats are real comfortable. Just a great car and cheap to maintain. The most fun you can have driving and very dependable.

This is my second 1991 ES Convt Turbo. I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find another. Very, very hard to find. This one had only 80K (Carfax certified) The Paint was very good except the trunk area. Not one ding on the car. The top is in VGC and the interior looks great. The car runs and drives excellent and everything works except A/C which was converted to 134a & just needs a compressor. Driving impression: The Turbo really sends this car flying and yet the engine at normal operating speeds is quite quiet & smooth, even at a stop light. This is the best car experience for $2,000 you can get. VG Reliability. It will blow the doors of any 90's Miata, etc.

Like most dodges, the engine was great,
but the body was crap. It started to
fall apart as soon as I got it. Clear
coat coming off, liners coming down.
BUT, the engine ran and ran. It saved
us so much money to drive it into the
ground. Hard city driving and long
family visit roadtrips. Overall I
definitely got my money out of it.

I bought the car with 46K and now it's
at 110k. It's traveled from Seattle to
Wisconsin and now to Florida to live.
This car has been a great companion.
I've used it for my paper route as well
as personal use and all my kids learned
to drive in it. I've had to replace
the radiator, brakes (2 times) and have
the a/c fixed and of course new tires.
But its been a great car.
