1990 Plymouth Laser Hatchback RS Turbo 2dr Hatchback


Review

I purchased this 90 Plymouth RS Turbo from a local dealership at a decent price with 161k on the clock. Had a new motor/turbo (A Big 16G) installed. Did a full belt replacement on this vehicle, tuneup, new tires and this thing is definitely a "Road Rocket" as was mentioned in a MOPAR review when these vehicles came out in the summer of 1989. Take it on a trip and it just flies down the freeway with superb handling and agility. Fuel economy ranges from the mid to high 20mpg range- as long as I didn't get carried away on the throttle. This is my 3rd DSM and love every one of them.


Best Features

The ergonomic feel of the cockpit - the seats are so confortable to be in and love the way you drive and ride low in these things. Rear wiper comes in totally handy-being as big as it is.


Worst Features

As an old vehicle, I can't ask for improvements from the factory. But, when they were built in the early 90's, maybe larger wiperblades be in store so the entire windshield was wiped instead of leaving a good 6 inches from the window top.

Review

I purchased my '90 Plymouth Laser RS Turbo this last spring - being this is my third DSM vehicle and my first turbo machine. Unit was well taken care of outside of a few dings here and there. I really love these vehicles due to the classis "1G" styling of the 'pop-up' headlights, radical cockpit interior, low riding seats which are tons confortable to sit in - even on long distances. Also, quite impressed, even with a turbo motor, achieving 28mpg on an average city/freeway run. Overall, best vehicles that could ever be on the road.

Review

This DSM, like all, need lots of
attention. The car can be troublesome
when puting upgrades in, bolt on or
otherwise. You will always want to
have patience with this car. The only
other problem is that the backseat
isn't very useable. Other than that,
The Plymouth Laser is a fun car to
drive and one that you will get
noticed in.


Best Features

The front interior is comfortable. The insurment cluster looks good. Ample trunk space for a weeks worth of backpacking gear for two people. Lastly there is a lot of things you can do with it (any type of interior/exterior/engine upgrades).


Worst Features

The Laser can take any first generation upgrades for a Talon or Eclipse too so there are plenty to work with. I suggest a new exhaust for added performance. Other than that, get professional help for any other major upgrades.
