I own five of these cars; from the base model to the twin turbo from each year so I feel I'm well qualified to make an accurate judgment of this car; to start this car is highly underrated and I wish they would get more recognition for the Design and engineering. Car is fairly comfortable driving long distance. My six speed turbo was great on gas for a sports car and went 450 miles if not more on a full 17 gallon tank. Oh man does this car sound good with an after market sound system with little or no effort although the head units angle does create a problem with a flip up screen if installed so using and double din unit is better.
The dash layout is very user friendly and bright at night; many gages and warning lights to look at. the all wheel drive is the best and cant be beat even when driving in the winter with 255/45/18" tires only Subaru comes close if not better and it's loaded with ever feature of a new car.
More head room, more adjustment of steering column for bigger people, bigger turbos but not bad, more after market part support though this is not an improvement, power window switch needs to be moved away from drivers left leg. all models should have come with adjustable seat high.
I Love this car, even before I bought
it, all the girls come up to me and ask
me what car it is, and i tell them its
a Dodge Stealth!! And on the highway
its realy fun, because you have so much
power you can pass anyone (exept the
cops.) This car is a realy fun car to
drive! Its good looking, fast, and a
chick-magnet!! Trust me ;)
- The sweet engin tone
- The super cool exterior
- And The Elegant Interion (exept for
the rear seats)
non improvments that I can think of,
this car is perfect!
Awsome car! AWD provides great traction. I've dumped the clutch at 5000
in sleet and took off like a dry summer day! comfortable, fast after the initial
turbo lag. By third gear you'r easily breaking the law! Tires aren't cheap and
don't last long in these sizes. 20-25k a set. Problems I've had: Those
chrome wheels are peeling! Failed water pump, alternator, ticking lifters! I've
heard this is a common problem. I was able to have them replaced under
warranty, but they've recently started again after 69k mi.. Right speaker is
going bad radio full of little glitches. Wind comes through the sun roof no
matter how tightly closed at 135 mph!
Acceleration! Handling! Body design! AWD!
Can't improve it, don't make it any more. I'd have suggested redesigning the
lifters and lowering the price! in '96 fully loaded, they were going for $46K+!!
Then sales dropped so they quit making it...Hmmm! Duh.
