1990 Dodge Dynasty LE 3.3 V6
A practical daily driver that stands out from the crowd
This was a very comfortable car to cruise in. The ride was exceptionally soft and cosseting, and the V6 engine was very refined and quiet. However, at motorway speeds the wind noise became a bit intrusive.
It was reasonably quick, and fairly economical for what is a large car in the UK. I managed a average of 26mpg.
I'd describe the handling as safe and predictable. It held the road well, but there was a fair bit of body roll, and the steering wasn't terribly communicative. That said, it was designed as a comfortable family car and wasn't intended to be sporty.
Whilst it was quite a large car by European standards it wasn't excessively big. It fitted OK into UK-sized parking spaces and didn't feel unwieldy in town.
The Dynasty makes a great daily driver for the American car fan, being not only a head turner, but economical too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
