1994 Dodge Spirit 4dr Sedan

Review

The spirit is a generally reliable car, with good V6 power, decent interior comfort, and a smooth ride. The only problem I have with it is the 4 speed automatic. The unit in mine died two weeks after purchase, throwing itself into safety mode in which it will only go forward in second gear. Even after a $1200 rebuild and about 18 months, it still doesn't feel like it works correctly, occasionally searching for gears while attempting to downshift or slamming itself into first gear.

Best Features

V6 Power- Large engine for a smaller mid-sized car; Fuel economy around 30 good on long trips; Aluminum wheels are unique; Heated mirrors;

Worst Features

Transmission needs to be recalled; Paint is peeling; Passenger window won't stay on track; Speedometer won't work at all sometimes; The fuel gauge is freaking huge; Automatic seatbelt chokes some passengers;
