1993 Dodge Spirit ES 4dr Sedan
'93 Spirit, 2.5L, Gold Package. Excellent value and performance. Purchased new and after 191K miles car is reliable. Maintenance cost/mile less than 4 cents. Routinely serviced, particularly transmission. No problems. Don't recommend the 3.0L engine - had that on a '88 Ply mini van and had engine and trany issues. Same trany on the spirit and no problems. Offers 6 seat belts and more leg room than some larger more expensive cars. Biggest expense was a brake proportioning valve failure. Engine, AC, trany, power steering pump fine. Replaced alternator and water pump twice. 2.5L has a timing belt which had to be replaced 3xs per mfg recommendation. Power okay.
Roomy interior, dependable, good fuel economy highest 32 mpg. 6 seat belts in split bench, visibility, trunk space, okay handling.
That Chrysler remake this car with a 2.4l World Engine. It has offered reliable basic transportation for our family for nearly 17 years.
