1992 Dodge Stealth R/T DOHC non turbo
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.
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.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
