Overall, I Love My Daytona And Would Not Trade Her For Anything! — I've owned this car for 12 yrs. I'll admit, it's cost me a lot to keep her running but part of this was because the previous owners ran her hard and did not take care of her as I do. I just had her repainted, and some interior work done. She performs so well I want to keep her a long, long time. It's been worth holding on to this car but parts are getting increasingly hard to locate.

Pros

there's no reason to drive this car; it's probably in the junkyard

Cons

electrical problems-typical dodge

Fun For The Little While It Lasted — Unimpressive, not the best 4-speed manual. Had issues going into gears, no power, just blah. Looked really cool though, put some nice rims on it and it actually looked cool-eh? Was good on gas. Certainly fun customizing the interior. Showed it's age too soon. Had many electrical problems.

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

Daytona Kicks Ass — 0-60 was awsome quick steering for a 2.2 it has a lot of power. the car is good on gas and it beats the hell out of the spirit any day. the car is the best fore cylinder car for that year of doge.

A Suprising Fun Car To Drive.. — I love the fact that this particular model is rare enough that you never see another one on the road. It has a very quick throttle response,brake and excellent in cornering. I would love to see if it really does 130 mph.

Pros

Doesn't look too, front seats are pretty comfortable. Easy to install custom electronics in car.

Cons

Weak engine, back seat room was terrible.

Nice Outside, Engine Disappoints. — It was a great first car for me for the $1000 I paid but would of liked more out of it. The trans went bad and he gauges were beginning to go bad. Gas wasn't too bad would of liked better. Car was quite strong though, I got hit twice and you could barely tell, they sure don't build cars as strong anymore. Performace wise it sucked. Absolutely sucked.
