1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue 5.2 from North America
Old square wind catcher, but more reliable than a Casio watch
Many, many miles of trouble free driving.
Well, I do not know where to start. I picked up this antiquated Chrysler for 300 bucks last fall, because my 02 Impala died a quick death when the oil level went a little low.
I do a lot of driving to and from work, and was badly in need to get something as a stop gap, till I picked up something reliable, and preferably no more than 5 years old, and relatively cheap.
Well I'll be damned; this Fifth Ave is the most reliable car I have ever driven, and that includes Japanese and German also. I have not got round to changing the oil and filter yet, which I know is badly needed, but it doesn't use any, no matter how hard I drive this thing.
Sure, it is a bit of a hog on gas, especially around town, but out on the open road, it is more economical than the 3800 Impala, and a damn sight quieter.
My advice to anyone looking for an old school, cheap and reliable, A to Z ride; find one like this, and you will be onto a winner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You haven't got around to changing the oil yet... Well alrighty then.
19,000 miles without an oil change? No wonder your '02 Impala gave up the ghost!
You haven't gotten around to changing the oil in a year, and you drive your car a lot for work?? Didn't you learn your lesson with your last car?
