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

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.

but it was terrible from day 1. Stay
away from this car. The hatchback
wouldn't even stay up because the
hydrolic arms were cheap.
