Dodge Spirit R/T

1991 Dodge Spirit R/T Turbo 4dr Sedan
This year I used this car for business travel about 125 miles/day about 4 days each week. Car performed very well in all types of weather including snow and ice. I had winter tires on it. It would do 30-31 mpg at 75 mph all day long. Very quick and good handling, never boring to drive. It is possibly the best all around car I have ever owned. I would buy another with no hesitation if I could find a nice one. One shows up on eBay from time to time. I keep watching.
The high performance DOHC 4 cylinder was great. No mechanical problems ever. Worst that happened was I wore out two timing belts at about 45,000 miles on each. No engine damage, just a one day fix. Dodge really built a great one that year. Mine was white, production was 400 +/-. MPG readout great
An extra turbo boost guage was an option. I bought it but did not get it installed. A sunroof would have been nice, don't think it was offered.
