General Comments:

I have found the Chrysler Laser XT a very nice comfortable car to drive. The interior is of a high standard.

It handles extremely well for a right hand drive converted car, that has been here in Australia and its harsh climate since 1990.

It turns heads everywhere it goes. People just don't know what it is, and come over and have a good look and ask plenty of questions.

Only problem would be getting parts for it here in Australia, as I believe it is the only one, so no one supplies spares, as no one knows what it is.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
