1990 Dodge Monaco ES 4dr Sedan


When I got my red 1990 Monaco ES, it was
a fabulous sedan. Everything was
powered, including both front seats and
the antenna. The MSRP was high at over
$20k, but slow sales led to hefty
rebates and discounts, which made the
car a steal at under $16k. This car is
really a Renault sedan, and was the last
Renault in the states as part of
chrysler's obligation to Renault when it
purchase AMC. Parts are a bit pricy, but
fortunately few have been needed. With
proper care, this car carried on though
many a MI winter without a hitch, and it
took many cross country trips in the
heat of summer with no disappointments.

Best Features

This car has a lot of cool features, including subtle but sophisticated mechanical touches. The best thing about it is the premium stereo, which is the best factory stereo I ever heard. It's the only car I've had in the last 30 years that I haven't changed the stereo in.

Worst Features

This car needs a more reliable water pump. I've replaced it twice. Also, it really should have airbags instead of motorized shoulder belts. Finally, there seems to be an electrical glitch that affects the front running lights, but not the headlights or turn signals. It's annoying.
