1981 Plymouth HorizonReview

An Inexpensive But Dependable Basic Automobile With Super High Fuel Economy. — The TC3 variant hatchback is by far the sportiest looking. Performance is a bit lackluster with the auto trans. But pair the VW sourced 1.7 L motor with the 4 speed manual trans, and she wakes up a bit. Simple to repair and VERY low maintenance. Pretty sparse interior, a basic commuter in every sense, but this car sips fuel at a Hybrid's rate and gets close to 50 MPG!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Useful hatch, low cost of ownership & 50 mpg

Cons: Plain Interior
