1992 Dodge Spirit ES 4dr Sedan


Review

I got this car a little over a year and a half ago, and It had just over 100,000 miles on it. I've put on about 20,000 miles since then, and I haven't had any major issues. Of course, since it is not 10 years old, a lot of the parts are giving out because of age, but other than that, it runs great. I have a V6 Automatic, so I don't have the best gas mileage. If I wasn't looking for a car with better gas mileage, I would continue to drive this car 'til it gave out (which I'm sure it could go another 5-6 years easily.) It is true, TAKE CARE of your car and it will take care of you! Since I've done that, the problems have been minimal! Love my dodge!


Best Features

My car was loaded with tape player, power windows/locks, keyless entry, cruise control, after market CD player, and so much more. Great features for its year. 20 years old and still kicking butt!


Worst Features

I wish I had the 4 cyl, but there is power behind my little Spirit. Occasionally it has issues turning over the first time (only when it is 85 degrees or hotter out) but that is to be expected with its age. It has never failed to start.

Review

Drove the hell out of this car (I got it when I was 16, now I'm 23). Gone 120 on the highway, hill hopping, off roading, trash can bowling, and even hit a deer going at a decent speed. Took out a mailbox going 45 and only left a small indent in the bummer. Spend my late teens burning out a lot. The tranny has held together like a champ, I do rust through tail pipes once every 1.5 years though. You do have to watch the oil closely this thing Burns oil like it is gas. Got it at 150,000 miles and drove for another 60k. This glorious dump just keeps running. If you are looking for a cheap beater get a v6 model with low miles and then get on down the road, you won't regret it.


Best Features

Windshield washer squirter started to aim to the right. I use it to squirt girls/pedestrians with washer fluid while I'm driving. Got a guy on a bike for about 10 secs one time just driving beside him.


Worst Features

10 gallon jugs of oil for the trunk so you are always prepared. Maybe supersized washer fluid tank so i can get in a squirt gun battle with a group of kids from my car.

Review

I bought this car with about 110,000 on it. Now it has 260,000 and still getting around 25mpg, and about 28mpg after a tune up. I have not touched this motor other then regular tune ups and I broke the timing belt at 204000 and replaced it. I have put a power steering pump, fuel pump and starter on this car. I change oil about every 5000 and it does not affect it. It have the 3.0 v6. I work construction and this is my work car so it really gets abused but I can not complain one bit. I had a plan of retiring it when it hit 1/4 million miles, but I figured lets go for 300000. I put snows on it in the winter and it gets around great. I have hit a couple deer with it ect. what a car.


Best Features

Ice cold air, great mileage and plenty of power, can still roast the tires.


Worst Features

Better headlights

1992 Dodge Spirit LE 4dr Sedan


Review

Everything is great except for a few fix-ups and one more serious fix. I really do love this car though. It's great but in saying that I also have to say that before I owned it, it was maticulously taken care of and maintained by the one previous owner.


Best Features

The air conditioning, good gas mileage, comfortability and durability.


Worst Features

The only troubles I've had was I had to replace the muffler at one point and I had to replace the head just recently because of a crack. I did it for relatively cheap and it was definetly worth it Now it's running better than ever before.

Review

I have had this car since 94,000 miles - it has caused me minor problems, nothing out of ordinary from an old and aged car... very reliable, been through a lot. When I'm in the spirit, all is well. I've found when I take care of the spirit, the spirit takes care of me. It really has been reliable, but you should stay on top of it's normal maintenance.


Best Features

The Spirit of the spirit is undeniably magnificent.


Worst Features

I've blown the speakers, but that's probably just my fault... I would say this ticking sound under the hood (hopefully not a bomb - mechanic said it's just age... i hope he's right)
