Newest Car I Have Owned Lol — I have owned it for almost 4 years- it has driven me crazy many times and has cost a lot of money in repairs- but I enjoy driving it- a good handling car that is just what I need right now

I Miss My Car. — I loved my car. It had minor stuff that needed to be done. Transmission liked to shift itself every now and then. This car got around KC and yes it was fun to drive. I miss it so much lol...

I Wish I Had The $$$ To Fix This Car Up. — I loved the styling and layout of this vehicle. The performance was great, great handling and acceleration. This car was a blast to drive. I bought it used with 20,000 miles on it and I finally wore it out when the odometer hit 190,000.00 I wish I could have afforded to rebuild the engine and transmission and restore the interior and the exterior. If I could have fixed it up I would still be driving it today.

Roomy.

Many technical issues.

A Bit Dated, But Fun To Run Around In. — Acceleration has improved since I put a new engine in, but braking and handling are below par. It has needed multiple repairs, but granted, it is getting old. I like the styling both of the exterior and interior, but it's not my favorite.

Pros

Roomy, comfortable interior.  Powerful V6 motor return decent gas mileage, fully loaded and worth it.

Cons

Electrical nightmares aplenty.

Electrical Nightmare, But Otherwise A Decent Car. — Dodge had a great idea with this car; cab forward design, 212 hp 3.5 Liter SOHC V6. But this car is an electrical nightmare. The gas gauge doesn't give a reading half of the time, ignition switch needs to be replaced (gauges sometimes do not go on after started, causing car to die out. Airbag light comes on for no friggin reason. ABS and traction control sometimes disable themselves. The positives are; very roomy interior, decent acceleration and gas mileage for a car this size, lots of bells and whistles with the ES package (leather interior, automatic climate controls (although these are problematic; had to replace mine), excellent infinity sound system straight from factory, comfortable to drive, and onboard computer that calculates gas mileage, outside temp, digital compass. Hasn't cost me much to maintain considering the build quality. Upper and lower intake manifold gaskets were pretty easy to replace and only 7 dollars for Fel Pro replacements. Did plugs and wires, and the car drives MUCH better now. The previous owner neglected maintenance on this car so I had to make it right. Only paid $500 for the car with 151,200 miles on it, so I can't complain
