I love this car. It drives nicely, runs smooth and has had little if any repairs. I purchased car with 40K miles and I've put 100K on it with no problems. Gets about 35mpg highway with 50/50 oil, and 22 combo in town/hwy. I switched to a 50/50 blend slowly, and wow!!! I think I could race a corvette if I had the mind to. Anyway, great car
this is my 2nd acclaim - my current is the 6 cyl - SO MUCH BETTER than the 1st - 4 cyl with almost 95,000 miles i am averaging 20 mpg - power, this engine has power and a smooth trans - rides smooth and looks GREAT inside and out the heat is HOT, the air is COLD - typical Chrysler product i am hoping that with routine maintenance, i can get the odometer to 150,000 - worry free miles -
We had our '92 Acclaim for 7 years and put 182k miles on it. The interior and body were very solid. Nothing ever broke or fell off. The engine was problem-free until 160k miles, when it blew the head gasket, typical of the 2.5L 4cyl. We NEVER had any issues with the 3-spd automatic. It was exceptionally plush and roomy for it's small size. The driving dynamics weren't so great (harsh ride, terrible brakes, gutless power), but it was such a dependable and inexpensive car to own. When you own a car for so long and like it as much as we did, it becomes a familiar friend. I miss that car so much!
Super reliable, roomy, comfortable, and the lowest parts costs of any car I've owned since.
Ok so I don't how you other guys are driving your cars but my '92 Plymouth Acclaim (with 2.5L inline 4) averages nearly 35 mpg on the highway even during winter. It has about two hundred and sixty thousand kilometers on it and its still running strong
A lot of mecanics don't like these cars just because they are MOPAR and are cheep to fix, they say they have electrical problims but it is easy to fix. It is mostly the wire close to the battery that burns into that causes the backup lights ceiling light, a/c / heater fan, and the back glass defogger to not work but it is easy to replace. Some say the transmissions are poor but they just don't know how to work on this. It is simply a $120 dollar fix of the two fromt axles with u joints replace those every 100,000 miles the car will run forever. I hope this helps a Plymouth owner with these problems oh and if it sputters and doesn't want to start buy a new distributor. I figured this out and I'm only 21 years old.
The smooth ride, cheep to fix, and durable motor. I drive mine to Florida and back to West Virginia four times a year. This car is dependable.
