1992 Dodge Stealth ES 3.0 DOHC


Unique well-built car that handles great and has amazing power at higher speeds

General Comments:

This car came out when I was in high school and was popular along with Supra, RX-7 and 300zx. I absolutely loved the 3000GT/Stealth shape, and am one of the very few that actually like the spoiler on the Stealth. I also thought the widebody shape gave the car a more muscular presence than the other 3.

I couldn't convince my parents to let me buy it back then, however I was lucky enough to find a totally unmolested Stealth ES a few miles from my house in Southern California from the ORIGINAL OWNER WITH ONLY 99000 MILES!!!

Everything still works in this car, and driving this car has been better than I could ever imagine. The handling is amazing, even with everything still stock on the car. Performance is good off the line, however it's excellent at higher speeds, especially with the fact that the redline starts at 7000 RPM.

I was wondering when I bought the car, whether not having a turbo would be disappointing... IT'S NOT!! This is an awesome car if you get the ES, RT or TT.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Amazing car, expensive, and a pain in the ass to work on


Bought with bad driver's side window motor. After a couple of months, the passenger side went bad.

Leaks clutch fluid.

Harmonic balancer is shot; cost 300.

ECS doesn't work, because the struts aren't in the best shape.

Leaks gas.

General Comments:

First off, let me say good luck trying to find parts for this car. That is the one thing I do not like about it. No stores ever have parts for these cars... understandable though, as it was only made for 6 years.

The window motors aren't terrible; they get old and break; some before others.

As far as my clutch fluid leaking, I'm not sure where that's coming from. Planning on putting in a new slave cylinder.

Harmonic balancer is 300 from a parts store with a discount.

Struts are ridiculous. No parts stores sell the ones with ECS; you have to get those through the Dodge dealership for the amazing price of $430 each!! I went with the used ones from a junk yard for 135 each...

Other than that, the car is amazing. I live in Michigan, and the car handles great in the winter. Any car will; you just need to know how to drive it.

The car is fast and handles great... gas mileage is OK; about 20-21 on the highway... I expected more... The other downfall is having to burn premium, which is now 3.40 a gallon... basically I'm paying as much as I should for having a full size truck.

Also, the engineering into this car is ridiculous. To change your spark plugs, you need to remove the intake manifold... Ridiculous! And you have about 2-3 inches between your belts and the side wall of the car.

Fast and reliable, but not a winter car


Replaced one CV joint at 100,000.

Main computer corroded at 138,000.

General Comments:

Superb car. I hesitated for years about getting a Stealth or 3000GT, but the car has performed perfectly.

Just recently the main computer corroded, but I got it rebuilt for $150.00, and a CV joint needed replacing, which was $60.00 plus labor.

It's a very fast comfortable car. If you are looking to get one, go for the DOHC engine because the SOHC engine is about 100 HP less and is a real junk motor.

The only problem is these cars use and need premium fuel. If you think you can buy one and run it on mid-grade, you need to get another car because all you will do is ruin the motor and get bad fuel economy. I get between 24 and 28 mpg using premium.

You also have to respect these cars because they can be a handful in the wet, and impossible to drive in the snow because of the 8 inch wide tires. These are not winter cars, and even in the wet if you give the car too much gas it will over-steer and put you in a situation that's hard to correct. I would not recommend a Stealth or Mitsubishi 3000gt for a 1st car or young teenager.
