1992 Plymouth Sundance 4 cylinder
The car was bought used at an auction and ran great for a few years, minus being slow on hills, but in the past few years has been nothing but a headache. I've had to change the head gaskets twice, multiple oil leaks, tons of changes in relays and wiring, radiator leaks, and so many problems with windshield wiper systems.
The car has never had much ability at climbing hills, but now I can barely make it up a hill, and for such a small engine gas mileage in town is atrocious. I am so glad I am getting rid of this car in a few days; it's just not reliable enough for driving a lot.
The few great things about the car are it is very comfortable and has amazing trunk space for such a small car, and the paint held up well; even after all this time, very few rust spots.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The four cylinder 2.2/2.5 has been known as a reliable motor with either automatic or straight drive. The main flaw with that engine is the aluminum head. My father and I both had Dodges with the 2.5 and they went over 250,000 miles. It was never a powerhouse, but my dad's Dodge Lancer did well in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Chrysler electrical has always been a nightmare. We both got 25 MPG in both the Lancer and Caravan. It is a simple and reliable motor that helped Chrysler out of bankruptcy in the 80s.
