Very Enjoyable Vehicle To Drive But Getting More And More Rare :( — i got a 1987 dodge raider silver. (no pics) it is a 3L with about 200 horses under the hood. i find that the acceleration is very good in mine. it is extremely fun to drive on or off road. it is one of the very few 4x4s i know of that will leave a 25ft long strip of burnt rubber on the ashphalt when it is 4 wheel drive!!! i think that the braking could be better but it is satisfactional. the handling is great i find. (if you want it to be!) it has NEVER squeaked or rattled and the only repair it has needed is for the exaust to be welded back on after my friend took it off a jump without my permission. i actually find that it is a very appealing car on the out side and inside. i find the gas mileage pretty good 500km to the tank. maintenance is very low in cost. i love all the little gadgets and buttons on the inside. its almost a luxury car! overall i absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it! oh yeah! i almost forgot! i pulled a great big 2500 gmc sierra 4x4 out of a bog with it. that just prove that they are small but very mighty!!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

great 4 wheel drive, starts every time, loads of bottom end torque

Cons

lots of rust, tends to bog out when I put my foot down, but its not a race car and I respect this fact

A Work In Progress — overall I just love the style, great looking truck and will be very capeable off road with a body lift, 32s, and some frame work. I got this truck for very little money so i can justify putting some into it. very excited new owner of a beat up dodge raider.

Overall Fun Vehicle — We really enjoyed our Raider, but had to give it up when our son came along. Not very easy to put a child in a car seat in the rear. Gas mileage was good for a 4wd, handling was good, service was good, would have kept it longer but family comes first.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Would have been fun to take it off road.

Cons

Unless you find a really good one in good condition, don't buy it.

Fun, Fun, Fun. — I loved this truck. Made of steel. But, brakes went to hell after having it for like a month or two. Almost crashed in it a few times. Was hella fun to drive with the windows rolled down and my regular ass boombox blaring music for me. Appearance was crappy but, kind of big. Maintenance, for what? It was a beater truck till I got my Toyota.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
