1991 Dodge Spirit Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

I got my Dodge Spirit around 2003-04. It had the 2.5L engine which had decent pickup and was fairly good on gas. The seat had good back support and the interior was easy to navigate. The car was easy to drive and was absolutely superior on snow and ice to any comparable car that I have ever driven. I believe this is due to the weight and shape. I never had a problem with the car until I decided to race it super hard one night, allowing the RPMs to be very high for an extended period of time. This blew the cylnder head. If I had not done that, I would probably still be driving it today. I thoroughly enjoyed owning this car. I blew it up with about 130k miles.


Worst Features

One more gear for the automatic transmission.

Review

The drive and appearance of this vehicle are unremarkable. It may leak oil on your driveway but you will not kill this car. Despite being able to find parts in salvage yards the only known cause of death I can attest to has been by demolition derby. The best part is she won.

Review

I bought this car in 1991 and have
driven it for over 12 years. Repairs
have been been minor and very few.
Maintenance is easy to do myself and
the parts are standard and not
expensive. This is without a doubt the
most reliable car I have ever owned,
and has certainly been a good value. I
keep thinking that I will trade it in
when it dies but it just keeps on
running great. I can still do 75 mph
on the highway and it still gets 24 mpg
driving around town.


Best Features

Low cost of ownership. Very comfortable seating with lots of rear seat leg room. Reliable basic transportation.


Worst Features

None

Review

When I bought this vehicle it had 84k
miles on it and now it has almost
170k. It has lasted me through college
and is still going and I have never had
any major problems. It is starting to
show it's age, paint is starting to
peel in places, but it's never let me
down and actually handles great in the
snow. The 2.5 Liter engine is very
good quality but I can't speak for the
others.

Review

We bought the car as a demo car, back a
long time ago. 10 years later, the car
still runs great. Its not perfect,
we've had a few things go wrong over
the years. But what do you expect for
an inexpensive basic car? The number
of things to go wrong has been I think
below average for a car with 200,000
miles on it.


Best Features

Reliable


Worst Features

Factory batter cables lousy, buy good ones. Factory ignition coil lousy, buy a "performance" ignition coil.
