1989 Chrysler Daytona Review
Great First Car, Great Memories — This was my very first car, bought it with an entire paycheck. It was in pretty good shape for being 16 years old when i bought it, It feels so personal, it is owner/driver oriented, but the driver's seat was too low for my taste, had to push my head up to see. It went from 0 to 60 uphill in 10 seconds, fast Little car. the engine developed a tick tick sound that got louder and louder as it was running and would only go away if you sped up. In the end i got my hands on a 2004 chevy cavalier and my dad sold this daytona when i wasnt home. i was really sad and i still love to look at videos on it. It is still my dream car.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Spacious, looks, powerful, speed up quickly, good gas mileage, reliable,
Cons: Engine developed a tick tick that would only go away if you sped up, need to keep up on paint as it deteriorates, interior upholstery falls off, 80's look doesnt blend in well

Great Bang For The Buck!
I love this car. What other car can boast power everything, including seats, a turbocharged 2.5L engine, and 4 wheel vented discs. All under 1G. It's not the cheapest on gas, but it's a lot of fun do ... Read More
