I bought this car with 15,000 miles from the Avis rental. It has been SO reliable. Too bad they are no longer made. I have to purchase newer car since this has 126,000 miles with minimal repair over its lifetime. Time for an upgrade and I am sad to see it go. It was driven across country twice and from NE to Florida five times...
very comfortable seats; good handling with the front wheel drive, hatchback when needed, 4 door sedan most of the time
My Duster now has 120,000 miles and still runs strong. The V6 is pretty quick. Interior is nice with woodgrain dash. Replaced the transmission at 85,000, but besides that no major problems. Very reliable and gets great gas mileage.
I bought my 2.2 liter 4-door hatchback
from a rental car agency in 1995 with
35k on the odometer. Plain Jane and
reliable as the day is long. I now
have 162K miles on it with no major
mechanical problems. It refuses to
quit. Paint is peeling and hubcap
fell off when I got new tires, but
mechanically this thing always starts
and always gets me to my destination.
I'm 6'4" 220 lbs and I fit very
comfortably in it, which is one reason
I bought it. I love it and I hope to
get at least 200K miles out of it.
Handles great in the snow and gets
about 26 mpg on the highway, not bad
for an old beast.
Comfortable and roomy for big guys.
Engine is piece of cake to work on.
Oil change is a breeze. Doesn't
quit. No one wants to steal it or
break into it. Durable and handles
pretty well. Absolutely a great,
I bought this car with 8,000 miles on
it back in 1995. Had it until fall 2003
when the head gasket failed and the
head got cracked. Had 120,000 miles on
it at the time. Not worth the 700-1000
to fix it. Replaced the automatic
transmission (a common complaint witht
the 94 Duster) at 30,000 miles,
replaced the rack and pinion system at
40,000 miles, air conditioner failed at
around 70,000 miles. Despite all the
repairs it was always a fun little car
to drive, great cornering, and great
power with the V-6.
I bought this car new in 1994. I had no
problems with this car until last
summer I had to replace the
tranmission. It drive nice it handles
very well on ice and snow. the oil has
been changed every 3,000 mies and tuned
up. It has all road miles. The interior
is very nice. It has cruise tilt radio
w/cassette air conditioning automatic
on floor.the exterior is nice except
for a few door dings.
