1988 Dodge Raider
Piece of crap!!!!
The carburator went out, cost was $1000.00.
Starter went out twice. The starter was repaired at a Dodge dealership and went out after driving the car 2 miles and stopping at a grocery store. I then had my car towed back to the same dealership who were going to charge me for another starter!!!!
I have never had so many problems with any car I have ever owned. I met another lady who owned the same make and model and she told me her carb went out also and as soon as she got it fixed, she traded it. I can assure you, that will be my next move.
I now understand why there were not too many of these cars made. It is very difficult to obtain parts, and when you do, they cost an arm and a leg. I now be gun shy to even venture towards another Dodge vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The Dodge Raider was not made by Chrysler corporation but by Mitsubishi Motors of Japan. It is the same vheicle as the Mitsubishi Montero. That could be the reason you had problems finding parts for the car. Import parts are always more expensive than than domestic ones. You will find that problem on all Toyota's, Honda's, Nissans and so on and so forth. Chrysler's other cars such as the Neon, Intrepid, Shadow, Minivans and so on and so forth, you will find the parts for those inexpensive and plentiful. Research your car before you blame the company to find out if it is actually their car or not. Thank you.
