1990 Plymouth Acclaim 4dr Sedan


Review

My parents bought this car back in
1992 and it has been wonderful.
Although the paint has basically
scaled away on the roof and the hood,
the car still runs great. The
acceleration on it isn't great now,
but then again its a 15 year old 4-
cylinder economy car. The car's
wonderful on long car trips, as it has
plenty of room. I chose to drive this
car instead of a 2000 PT Cruiser; that
car was a piece of junk.


Best Features

The interior is very roomy. The car isn't very fancy, but its reliable and there's only a very, very slim chance that anyone would ever consider breaking into it.


Worst Features

The air conditioning, while very cold, has a tendency to always blow on your feet. Don't drive barefoot or in sandals, basically.

1990 Plymouth Acclaim LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I love this car! I've owned it for 10
years with no major repairs. Yes, the
paint peeled horribly but I had it
repainted and it looks like new. This
car is very comfortable and roomy for a
small car. It knocks a little upon
start-up but it has done this since I
bought the car. It burns a little oil
but not so much that I must add oil
between oil changes. For a 14 year old
car, it still gets 30 mpg on the
highway. It has lots of get-up-and-
go. I have taken care of this car and
it has taken care of me.


Best Features

Huge back seat area! Lots of room in the car for 4 adults to ride comfortably.


Worst Features

I wish Plymouth was still producing this car. There is nothing about this car that I feel needs improvement. It isn't fancy but it is reliable.

1990 Plymouth Acclaim LE 4dr Sedan


Review

We could always count on this car with
very little time in the shop. Plenty
of room throughout the car. Great for
shopping or traveling and with 23mph
city and 28 highway not too expensive
to use. Yes the valves tap but they've
been tapping for 60 thousand miles with
no problem. My wife loves it and had
it repainted last year. The original
paint job was coming off but with the
new color it's almost like new.


Best Features

The roooooom! Lots of trunk space, enough back seat for 3 with leg room for 4! Front has room for 3 as well but not for very long distances. It's extremely comfortable for 4.


Worst Features

Keep making cars like this! There's nothing out there like it! That's why we're buying a 95 Acclaim. Not as a replacement!

Review

I bought this car and this car has
started to fall apart. This has begin a
money pit and an eye sore. I have the
lights held in place with a toothbrush
it burns oil like a WWII tank and it
puts out a blue smoke screen when i hit
the gas. THe speakers stopped working
not long after purchase and now the
seats have all ripped. Also the timing
belt ripped like a paper bag on the
highway. I am afraid to drive it in
towns since i fear the smoke will harm
small children or animals.


Best Features

It used to work now it starts sometimes. At times i can get to work.


Worst Features

Fix the reliabilty issues please.
