This Car Was Good Back In It's Day — the car was good back in it's day but that time is long gone I can still use the car it's very useful for short commutes or quick errands but I'm looking to replace because I can't rely on it any more.

Pros: gets pretty good fuel economy but could be way better if maintained

Cons: if you need a reliable car this car isn't for you as it's broken down a few times while driving

A Real Keeper. Too Bad They Don't Still Make Them. — Good size, good power, excellent fuel economy, sharp-looking, easy to handle, great winter car, comfortable for long trips, quiet interior, many bells and whistles, economical to maintain, fun in the long run to drive! What else can I say about the 1989 Plymouth Acclaim except that it's awesome!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent on gas without sacrificing power

Cons: Can't think of anything, though I've heard the tranny goes at about 200,000 kms

Crappy — its white, 4 door, ff, 2.5 4 banger, loaded to the gills with stickers that try and make it look like its worth driving. it burns oil, has an exhaust leak, brakes blow, tires are pretty bald, and has a tape player. do i care?? nope. except the tape player part, i dont own any tapes

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: none

Cons: everything

Plymouth Acclaim 1 — It was a granny car, what else to say, It was squre and not stylish but it got you where you wanted to go. Once I got it up to 90 and scared myself!!!! It sure would peel out though!!

Pros: it drove

Nice When It Worked — This was my Mom's car and ran quite good up until 105K miles when the head gasket went and the master cylinder on the rear brakes. The ride was very nice, it serviced us for many a family vacation. With the right tires it was awesome in the snow. It had been serviced regularly.

Pros: nice smooth ride, pretty peppy, good family car

Cons: not a long term high mileage car

They Don't Make Them Now. By Jesse

I bought this car for my elderly mom since I was working at a Chrysler dealership and got all the discounts. She drove very seldom so the car has under 40k miles. I maintained the car as directed by C... Read More

Hot Ride By Shane

This car gets me to work everyday. It handles well for what its is. This car makes handles well in the snow and is hard to dent when you do run into things. One day I aspire to use this car in the 24 ... Read More

Great For A Daily Driver By raffobaghdo

It needs a gas leak repair and front struts. Bought it for 400. It is a really sporty 4dr sedan. Gets 30 mpg most of the time well not now since there is a gas leak. I really like it Read More

Decent Everyday Car, However The 4 Speed Transaxle Leaves A Lot To Be Desired. By Danny

The car gets good gas mileage for size, engine and transmission. I don't think I'd recommend pushing hard on corners with stock - factory setup. There is reasonable front and rear leg room and trunk... Read More
