1994 Dodge Spirit 4dr Sedan


The spirit is a generally reliable car,
with good V6 power, decent interior
comfort, and a smooth ride. The only
problem I have with it is the 4 speed
automatic. The unit in mine died two
weeks after purchase, throwing itself
into safety mode in which it will only
go forward in second gear. Even after
a $1200 rebuild and about 18 months, it
still doesn't feel like it works
correctly, occasionally searching for
gears while attempting to downshift or
slamming itself into first gear.

Best Features

V6 Power- Large engine for a smaller mid-sized car; Fuel economy around 30 good on long trips; Aluminum wheels are unique; Heated mirrors;

Worst Features

Transmission needs to be recalled; Paint is peeling; Passenger window won't stay on track; Speedometer won't work at all sometimes; The fuel gauge is freaking huge; Automatic seatbelt chokes some passengers;
