Review

I am a proud owner of a 1991 Daytona
Es. The car is moderately well loaded.
I accumulate mileage quickly, and my
daytona has had very few problems. It
is a high mileage vehicle (160k) but is
still running strong. I did however
replace the transmission not that long
ago, due to some internal bearing noise
(previous owner didn't fill up trans
lube) and the only other beef I have is
the fact that it blows some blue smoke
dude to worn valve seals (very common
on 3L)


Best Features

I love the sleek body style! The v-6 makes it pretty quick, and the gas mileage is incredible at 28 mpg mostly city driving (this is coming from a man who likes to put his foot into it)


Worst Features

I'm a little dissapointed with the valve seals going bad and the amount of oil it leaks

Review

Fairly reliable, sporty looks, good
handling, looks great with ES ground
effects, looks stupid without them! I
retired this car at 175K, since I now
have a wife and baby daughter, and the
backseat (what backseat?) is too small,
and the car sits too low to the ground
for my wife. Otherwise, it still runs great!
Although My ES doesn't have the
Overdrive Automatic(a historical trouble
spot), the 3 speed auto transmission did
die at 120K. I have the same trans in a
'96 Voyager and, at 107K, it's starting
to hiccup in the same manner. just be
sure you expect a trans problem. I
haven't had any problems with the 2.5L 4
cyl, except for injector/throttle
cleaning and an EGR valve.


Best Features

handling, gas mileage, style, easy to maintain and repair. Cheap to repair. Really good crash test rating (but it would be sad to wreck it) The 2.5L auto is strong enough in this size car, and fairly quick, given that it is a 4cyl.


Worst Features

the car isn't made anymore, but I hear chrysler still can't make a transmission last over 120K.... That is sad.

When i bought the car some sensors were
not working and the car was in not so
good shape, i spend no more than like i
would say $200 on sensors and
performance parts, and well the car
runs great and is a fast sports care i
would recommend this car to anyone it
has its quriks like most cars, but i
love it its reilable and starts up
everyday!

Review

MY neighbor owns a 91 daytona and the
car has nickel and dimed him to death
alot of the problems start with the
poorly designed 3 litre v6 just about
everything in the world that could go
wrong with the car has. I would steer
clear of this vehicle if at all
possible. But the vehicles
dependability & performance depend on
the maintance recieved. Helpful hint be
careful when buying this model of car.

Review

Bought as a cheap backup car, but it
shocks me. 200,000 hard miles and
still drives like new. All options
still work perfectly, ice cold air,
solid criuse-control, very comfortable
interior, not a single rattle in the
body! simple 2.5L, 5-speed
surprisingly quick, handles great. Had
to replace radiator and o2 sensor but
that's it! Very reliable! I'd drive
it anywhere. Was a
temporary backup, but now I drive it
all the time!


Best Features

Styling, in and out, reliability, inexpensive to maintain, 5-speed, parts easy to find, tight body and engine, even after 200,000 miles! Gets a good 30mpg or more.


Worst Features

Nothing.
