It has had regular maintenance and at 77,000 had all fluids changed - transmission - brake, etc.It has been a very reliable car. It has a few small dents on the roof from small tree branches hitting it.
I drove my Spirit 100K in a little
over three years. Very dependable and
reasonably thrifty. V6 was peppy but
limited by transmission and suspension.
Interior was OK, seats left much to be
desired for both comfort and support.
Needs cam belts every 60 K or so and
water pumps about the same time -
water pump is cam belt driven.
Had the famous Chrysler paint flakin
problem when driven to Goodwill.
Bought this car out of the showroom as
one of the last Spirits built.
3.0 L V-6 has gobs of torque and
launches of the line like a 5.0
Mustang, but runs out of steam early.
Gas mileage is great (25 mpg avg) for a
Comfortable,reliable and absolutely no
rust!!!! Not bad for an 8 year old car.
Had this car brand new and 10 years going strong. Extremely reliable and great ride. Gone to trade in several times and could not justify because of its excellent performance and smooth ride. Built solid. Gonna drive it till it dies. Saving to give to son because of its features.
