Summary:

Great car for anyone looking for comfort, reliability, performance, and style!

Faults:

Replaced alternator and radiator after an accident.

Replaced all brakes.

Power windows and locks have become a bit quirky.

Sometimes the transmission won't shift right when it's cold.

Shocks are terrible.

General Comments:

I love this car.

I always get compliments for how comfortable it is.

It takes plus fuel and gets about 19 mpg mixed.

The shocks make it feel like a roller coaster ride.

For a boat of a car like this, it is surprisingly fast. I burn people off the line almost every time.

It is very roomy, even with 6 people in the car.

Summary:

Absolutely Phenomenal American Automobile

Faults:

At the time of purchase the car had a "miss" that turned out to be a valve problem.

At 140,000 miles the transmission failed and was replaced with a factory re-manufactured unit.

141,500 miles must of ran the window up and down too many times, now the passenger front window drive cable/belt is broke, common problem in the Chrysler window lift system. Pricey repair estimated at $400.00.

142,000 miles the water pump failed and the bolt broke off in the block. Darn it anyway, but common they say. did not replace the bolt, the car is fine with out it.

158,000 miles the air conditioner condenser popped a small hole and leaked all the freon out. Needs a condenser still. Not using air for now anyway.

At 156,000 miles the entire rear brake system needed replaced, probably from my neglect of good maintenance practices and hard driving.

At 160,000 miles the transmission had a "hard part" failure that may have been a weak link in the re-man trans. not a big deal to me it was still covered by the excellent factory reman warranty.

General Comments:

This car has been the finest automobile I have ever owned. I have many cars, new and used this has the best quality of a car I have owned. Paint, interior and power train have met my expectations for a high quality car that has class. This car makes a statement when seen, and when carrying new passengers. Definitely a vehicle that can make an astounding impression to anyone. The engine responds very good. The air suspension is wonderful and has been no trouble at all.

Summary:

A comfortable, attractive highway cruiser

Faults:

Rear master cylinder needed to be replaced.

Its previous owners replaced the transmission in 1994.

General Comments:

Driving experience: The Fifth is a very comfortable highway cruiser; it's quiet and swallows up road irregularities easily. The car does not like curves and the suspension does get upset by large humps in the road. Most definitely a cruiser and not a handler.

Ergonomics/Features: Switches are largely easy to reach, however there are nits to pick. The radio hides behind the column shift lever. The power window and lock switches are the same shape and close enough together to create confusion. On the plus side, the power seat controls are easy to reach and use, and provide eight way adjustments and a two position memory feature that also saves the position of the interior and exterior mirrors. The mirror control is fairly easy to use, but less so than on later model Chrysler products.

This car is pretty standard, but the content level is high: Full power seats/windows/mirrors; automatic headlamps with time delay feature; load levelling rear suspension; storage consoles under the dash and above the rear view mirror, and tons of trunk room.

Summary:

A classy looking highway cruiser

Faults:

Just had the battery replaced and a tire plugged, but that's it.

The vinyl roof is deteriorating and the dash is raised from the cowling; both most likely due to sun damage. I don't think previous owner ever garaged it.

Driver's side door panel loosening; will need to address.

General Comments:

A great highway cruiser. Comfortable; easy to sit in for long trips. Automatic headlights and autodimming rear view mirror are nice touches.

Cheapo replacement tires on the car at purchase plus ride-biased suspension make cornering interesting. You guide it more than steer it.

Trunk is deep but a little shallow. Lid opens well out of the way and is nicely counterbalanced. Back seat room exceptional.
