1985 Dodge Aries 4 door 2.2 electronic carburetor
Cheap commuter vehicle, an American Lada
Front shock absorbers worn out, normal wear, but they are McPherson type, so pretty expensive to change.
Electronic carburetor system is really complicated. Prefer -87 or newer with fuel injection. I had to replace it with an older type (1981-83).
Car is like a bulky Toyota with lower quality.
Sort of funny, small "big" car.
Power brake booster failed.
I did not like the front wheel drive and jumpy ride, that's why sold it.
Nowadays parts are quite hard to get. See also allpar.com.
After all, it's not so economical with the automatic transmission, despite its low weight and small size.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The Dodge Aries was one of the fastest, most fuel efficient family vehicles available in the 1980's...Its God's gift to Drivers! It also saved Chrysler from bankruptcy. For more info call me
