1991 Dodge Stealth Hatchback 2dr Coupe


Review

Purchased in 2000 with 125k miles. Currently have 272k miles! The SOHC engine is indestructible. 25 MPG every fillup. The tranny will need new syncros every 125k miles or so, but still drivable. Items replaced are: Syncros, radiator, alternator, starter, power steering rack, water pump seal, noisy lifters, and lower ball joints. Though the list seems long, they all occurred between 180k - 250k miles so it's to be expected. Fix it yourself because it very easy to work on. Regular maintenance includes the timing belt every 60K but you can go 120k on the belt with the SOHC engine without issues. Clutch also lasts about 120k miles. Paid $4k, and put about $4k in parts during 8yrs of ownership.


Best Features

Torque and looks. Fairly reliable. Will last forever if maintained.


Worst Features

Tranny synchros have always been the weakest link, though they will not cause you to be stranded.

Review

I love this care to death. trust me. but for it being a 1991 the reliability isn't too good. I have a lot of electronic problems. It's a fast car and it's easy to modify. But it has a lot of electronic parties.


Best Features

3.0 v6 and the slick body.


Worst Features

Plastic regulator parts need to go and it needs a more powerful alternator.

Review

Bought this car from Kuni Lexus in Colorado in August 1995 with 60,000 mi. Absolutely wonderful car to drive until 100,000 mi. Exhaust started smoking, wouldn't pass emissions. Needed new engine. Paid over $3,000 for rebuild, lasted 2 yrs before it started smoking again. Had electrical problems when a short occured in the wiring bundle. The car would shut off in the middle of the road. Car lasted until 151,000 miles.


Best Features

The handling was superb. Loved driving the car before the problems started.


Worst Features

Don't buy one with high miles. Dealers say engine reliablity goes at 100k. Improve engine reliability. Donated car to American Cancer Society, figured it smoked so badly that it needed a new home!
