This DSM, like all, need lots of attention. The car can be troublesome when puting upgrades in, bolt on or otherwise. You will always want to have patience with this car. The only other problem is that the backseat isn't very useable. Other than that, The Plymouth Laser is a fun car to drive and one that you will get noticed in.
I purchased my '90 Plymouth Laser RS Turbo this last spring - being this is my third DSM vehicle and my first turbo machine. Unit was well taken care of outside of a few dings here and there. I really love these vehicles due to the classis "1G" styling of the 'pop-up' headlights, radical cockpit interior, low riding seats which are tons confortable to sit in - even on long distances. Also, quite impressed, even with a turbo motor, achieving 28mpg on an average city/freeway run. Overall, best vehicles that could ever be on the road.
I loved this car! The performance was a HUGE difference from my old car ('84 bmw 318i). I spent more money in those 3 months on this Laser than I had spent on my BMW (which runs very poorly) in a year, including gas. In the 3 months I had the car I replaced the battery twice, the alternator twice, P/S pump, and all the P/S lines. The car had already had a lot of work right before I got it too, new clutch, new cv boots, new front axles, complete AC system replaced, and some other stuff. I had just replaced the timing belt and the car was running GREAT! it had more power than ever, got great gas mileage, and sounded smooth...for two days.
