I Still Like It. — It is a k car. But with a few upgrades and a little time a person can see it's a direct dessendant of the srt-4. It does have it's squeaks, rattles, leaks from being abused before I owned. The 170,000+ 2.5l motor and the 555 5 speed gearbox still respond very well. The exterior is in terrible condition; however all the rust has been found and elimenated. Overall I am pleased with Sleepy Jean and am happy with the power to cost ratio.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a true sleeper, capabale of keeping up with any of the ricers around town.

Cons: It"s kinda ugly.

Fits 5 Passengers — Excellent on Gas, it gets about 30 miles to the gallon, but overall an excellent car for being over ten years old, it's not really made for racing or for trying to out run the cops but i like it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great on gas

Cons: 0 to 60

The A To B Car. Gets You From A To B. — performance- acceleration was labored because it had a bad transmission. braking was adequate, as well as handleling. it was a dodge from the late 80s. dodges from this period were notorious for transmission problems. one of the most expensive types of repairs. it looked terrible. horrible flat black repaint job. didnt cost much to own. was good on gas. when i had it gass was about 150 a gallon. not what you would call fun to drive though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it gets you where you need to go

Cons: my windows wouldnt roll down

A Great Car All Around If You Just Want Basic Transport — its a bit of a lame grocery getter, but i like it none the less. the car is over 22 years old, and as far as i'm aware, we've never had a mechanical problem with it. it has no rust either. i hope to drive it as my daily driver for years to come.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent Visibility, gas efficient (in the summer anyway), reliable, basic, cheap, american, tan color hides dirt quite well

Cons: auto transmission has trouble grabbing gears at times, terrible acceleration, its a little ugly, has trouble driving on hills sometimes, my motor mounts are going
