1989 Chrysler TC by Maserati 2.2 16V turbo from North America
When I drive it I smile
Engine problems in 1999.
Transmission replaced while under warranty.
Currently restoring. Replacing anything that requires maintenance.
The worst thing is the antilock brake system. Hard to find and nasty to replace. Labor to replace in the 2015 market was almost $1000. There are articles on replacing the ABS with standard power brakes, but this must be disclosed to insurance companies, which might make it harder to insure.
In 1989 this car performed extremely well relative to other available cars. 0-60 in 6.9 seconds. The Maserati interior is beautiful. Came with removable hard top with opera glass windows and a soft top.
With the stock Maserati engine and Getrag transmission, it was deceptively quick. With an upgraded computer, custom exhaust and bigger turbo, it will give many 2015 cars that are considered fast, i.e. Mustang GT or Cadillac CTS-V, a run for their money.
The seats are like sitting in a La-Z-Boy chair. This car is unique and unlike any other car. One must drive one (with the performance engine and manual transmission to really appreciate it). The other engines can be modified fairly easily to perform quite well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
