1997 Plymouth Breeze 2.0


I love it


I bought the car with 40,000 miles on it in 2-01-00 and the dealership replaced the head gasket (recall).

My water pump locked up at 151,000 miles and took the timing belt along with 2 intake valves in Oct 2008.

Map sensor went on Aug 12,2009.

Car seen 3 brake jobs.

Replaced the CV joints at 130000.

Just replaced the struts at 164000 miles.

Thermostat 2 times.

Other than these few things, the car has been problem free, I love it. I would buy another one.

General Comments:

The car could have had more power, but gets great gas mileage.

There's a lot of room inside, from the drivers seat you can see everything inside the car.

Love the car, wish it was "younger" ie; less mileage


Replaced the alternator a few thousand miles ago.

When we got it, the digital odometer would not come on until it had run about 20-30 miles, and = the headlights had to be on.

Hit a hidden pothole about 3 weeks ago, and it has been turning on every time since.

Other than regular maintenance, nothing else has gone wrong with it.

General Comments:

We were told it was a previous rental car. The nephews obtained it in CA, and we got it from them. It was a pigsty of the worst order, and has some body damage that just makes you wonder how it got that way. Interior was filthy... but everything was salvageable. They did do maintenance regularly. On a hot day, you could get mildly stoned.

To read the reviews on this car, it sounds like, even tho ours has been driven hard and abused, it still runs like a champ. Started last winter on the coldest of days. Gets 32-33 Mi per gallon consistently.

After reading the reviews, it sounds like I may have one of the few on the planet that are worth a darn.

General Comments:

I had a 97 Breeze and I loved that car. It was great, I never had any problems. Everything always worked, and it always started up on me.

I would race this car with friends, take it through fields, and I've hit a couple things with it also, and it's always had no problems.

It was a beast. I wish I could find another car just like it!

General Comments:

This car is a blast to drive through the twisty mountain roads we have here. The suspension/steering systems engineers need to be highly praised. Still on 14 inch wheels!

It is seriously underpowered especially at higher altitudes but returns up to 34 mpg.

It was purchased for $600. With about $500 in parts and my labor it is reliable so far.

It is roomy and actually pretty fun to drive.

The rear seat folds down and in go the skis bikes whatever.

Going to 16 inch wheels tires soon. Will race SCCA!

Almost 300,000 ks and still going strong!


I got the car with warped routers so it squeaked when it braked and a shot left tire bearing. so that in total cost me $357.

3 days ago I had to replace both lower ball joints which in the Breeze means replacing the control arm as well it cost me $1,000.

General Comments:

I bought the car for $2,100.

I've put 48,000km on it in less than a year I'm just now starting to get all the maitenance work done on it.

I drove this car all over Ontario and never once did it let me down.

Id buy another one of these in a heart beat.
