My Grandmother bought the car and eventually it was passed down to me. At first I thought of it as a student car I could run into the ground, after many months of it surviving my abuse I found out about the rarity of this car. I have since then rebuilt it and wow, does it ever run well. The interior is very comfortable (might as well have lay-z-boys for seats) and the exterior offers a certain unique quality not found in cars today. I cannot wait until they declare this car a classic (read on it, it will happen) for that will be the time that I will laugh at the ones who called it the "granny car".

As the title states, I feel the Premier was never fully appreciated by most owners, or dealers. My 91 ES was a bit of a contradiction...great handling, great ride, tons of room & comfort inside, but at the same time, if I didn't have any mechanical ability, cost of ownership would have been sky-high!! If you're looking for an unusual Euro-sedan, the Premier (in ES or ES Limited form) is a great choice....HOWEVER, if you want a reliable, easy to repair vehicle that darn near any mechanic can work on, look someplace else!! Chrysler dealers aren't any help either..they'd just as soon forget they sold the darn things as look at them, so beware....

ScraI got the car for a birthday
present on my 16th birthday. The
problems with the car began on day 1.
Aside from the constant overheating
problems it had (which after 2
thermostats still occured), the
alternator went 3 times, the battery 3
times, the wiper motor went, the
windows didn't crank anymore, the backs
of the seats were falling apart, the
rims were defective (causing many flat
tires), it was nearly impossible to
work on due to the fact that nothing
was accessible. Don't even think of
buying this car.

good car, plagued by electrical
problems that escape dealership service
department; but are simple repairs to a
man that understands electrical issues
like moisture intrusion. Connections
are 99% of the problems I have had, and
have never required the hundreds or
thousands of dollars to replace parts
as suggested by the dealer, clean and
dry connections with die electric
grease, made all the difference in each
case - engine, speddo sensor, fuel tank

A real sleeper . . . 3.0L French built
PRV motor used in many high end and
exotic european cars (Peugeot 505,
Renault Alpine). Well designed, roomy
interior, great seats, huge trunk.
Body designed by legendary Italian
designer Giugiaro. Corners like a 3-
series, models with 4-wheel disc stop
on a dime. Around 25 mpg average. 0-
60 in 9.5, top speed 126mph. All this
for typically less than $2,000.
