1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Review
"snow White" Grabs Attention Wherever I Drive From Young And Old Persons Alike. — I purchased this car ("Snow White") in April 2009 with 35,000 original miles on it, from the second owner. It is an original Portland car. All accessories work on this car, includiing the factory sunroof (put in for Chrysler by American Sunroof Corp prior to original purchase). It is white with a white vinyl roof over the back 1/3 of the roof, and has plush red velour interior (I call it my Reno Red Bordello interior). It is a very comfortable, floater of a car to drive, with great power(V-8). I have driven to Reno, San Francisco, Boise, Idaho (where I kept it at about 80-90mph for several hours, without any problems) and Salt Lake City, Utah this past Memorial Day weekend with 5 of us and our luggage!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: It is so smooth to drive.
Cons: Gas mileage.

The Fifth Avenue...room For All
The acceleration of this car is nothing spectacular, but it did feel powerful and wouldn't ever bog down due to the large V8 under the hood. This car is big so handling isn't great, but has a smooth r... Read More
I Wouldn't Trade Her For Anything In The World

Great Car For Everybody
I like the ride of this car. You can drive all day long and you won't get tired, unlike most other cars that make me tires after a couple of hours. I take it for long distance trips everywhere I go. Read More
