Big luxurious 1980's style American boulevadier. Quiet and comfortable on smooth roads, rough pavement causes abrupt and harsh ride. Poor handling, and lots of super floaty motions on quickly undulating freeways. Spacious, first class looking, fully equipped interior Impressively roomy rear seat legroom. Disappointingly, the first class interior styling is betrayed by average contstruction and assembly. Rattles in doors and dash occasionally sour the luxury ambiance. Powerful but boomy 10 speaker Infinity Ultimate Sound system. Overall a nice blast from the past available for bargain prices. Imperials do not stand up well to abuse or neglect, watch out for well maintained examples.
This was a Cancer Donated car from a
junk yard so I was taking my
Only have had to make normal repairs
motor replacement,etc)for a car this
old and with this "many" miles! Only
negative mechanical comment...rear
automatic leveling system, doesn't
last. 2nd Chrysler same problem. Know
someone with same car,same problem.
Solution;replacing rear spirngs and
putting in air shocks. Friend said this
solved problem...no difference in
ride.Other wise...Mechanicly.."A VERY
DEPENDABLE CAR!". Even started
everyday this past winter in -10deg
weather,10 days in a row, "NO"
With the exception of a leaky valve
in the air conditioning piping, I have
experienced no trouble with my Imperial.
The 3.8 V6 accelerates more than
adequatly for it's size, coupled with
near seamless shifts from the transaxle.
The ride quality is excellent and the
appearance of the car is classy yet
This car is one of the best autos that I
have ever owned. Probably if it had
been promoted more it would be with us
today. It has a quiet elegance that
says quality luxury car but is not
ostentacious. When I give folks a lift,
I always get "What kind of a car is
this?" They don't believe that it is as
old as it is. It is comfortable, quiet,
peppy, and filled with useful features
that easy to use and understand.
