Review of the 1998 Plymouth Breeze

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Extremely spacious entry-level car. Impressive driveability and handling.

  • Cons

    The 2.0-liter engine and the automatic transmission spell doom for those who must merge onto fast-moving freeways during their daily commute, so opt for the 2.4-liter.

  • What's New for 1998

    Availability of a 2.4-liter engine brings150 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque, and that's just what the Breeze needs to live up to its name. Both engines can meet California emissions regulations, and new engine mounts help make them quieter. An Expresso package adds some aesthetic changes, a power sunroof is now optional and there are six new colors to choose from.

1998 2.4l plymouth breeze

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Breeze 4dr Sedan

I have owned my 98 Breeze with 227k for a year, purchasing it for $1200. I have encountered some issues, such as a bad master cylinder, a broken power steering hose, and common maintenance, 2 wheel bearings and control arms. The only major issue is the transmission. On summer days after 30 min. of highway driving the car will lurch, rev to 3500 rpm, and go into limp mode. That being said, the car has been reliable and gets me where I need to go with good mpg(25-27) The handling is good, especially in the winter, and it cruises well down the freeway. The interior suffers from small cup holders and poor insulating, leading to a noisy ride. Overall, the Plymouth Breeze is a solid, reliable car.




Great car..

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Breeze Expresso 4dr Sedan

I bought this car 3 months ago for $1600 from someone who purchased it from an auction. When i bought it, it had 120,000 miles on it..My mother has the same year explorer with 180,000..So pretty good. This car has been great. When i first purchased it, we changed the oil, and a couple of belts that looked worn. Replaced a bulb, and recently we replaced a hose. (All very cheap parts.) The car is very comfortable on the inside, great for road trips, gets good gas mileage. Mine is purple, and the clear coat is chipping everywhere, but THANKFULLY my brother works in a body shop and it is getting painted this weekend. All in all, I'm glad to have this as my first car..and its made in AMERICA.




Better than my $5k dodge...

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Breeze Expresso 4dr Sedan

i bought this car after my 5 thousad dollar 2000 dodge intrepid died, the motor blew. i found this car through a co-worker who sold it to me for $500, almost 4 years ago. ive never had a problem with the motor or transmission. ive never had any issues, besides regular wear issues. i had to put around 550 dollars into it for inspection purposes. but after that nothing else. just drove it 650 miles (first road trip) and it didnt skip a beat. i averaged 20 mpg, which for a 4 cylinder i think is high. considering the weight of the car, i assume. good car to me. has 146,000 miles on it now.




Never a problem

Terrible, first car nightmare

Vehicle: 1998 Plymouth Breeze 4dr Sedan

My mom bought a car for my sister and I for our first car. she ended up giving me this piece of crap because it's racking up the repairs. I can't rely on it to be good for a couple months without a major repair and I don't do anything other than drive to work everyday.Having no heat every freaking winter in Minnesota sucks terribly, head gaskets, radiators, etc always goes out annually.AC also went out, blowers went out, trunk latch stopped working randomly, brakes squeak even after being in shop, horn had to be unplugged because it goes off when I hit the gas, can't replace without doing whole steering column.Very hard to merge in fast traffic with this engine.Piece of crap

I have only had my car a year and a half and have already put more in to the car than I got it for. I got my car for $1700 and now I've put almost $3000 in it. I had the car for 4 months before it started causing me problems. I started college 2 months ago and my car has been in the shop 5 time since then. I love the car but its problems are too much for a Freshman in college. If you think about getting this car for you high schooler do it but once they get in college start looking for a new car. I think the car would be great if it was built better.
