1988 Dodge Aries LE 2.2L from North America
Awesome closet classic
Other than the body rot, not. Much!
Overall, great buy. My stepson picked it up for $500. It's used in every sense of the word. It fired right up and shifts and runs great. How many 30+ untouched originals can do that?
Simulates faux wood grain dash trim. AM/FM radio. Velour seats. Crank windows, manual seats. It screams economy.
As I stated to my stepson: "Right here is automotive history. Saved Chrysler, brought them back from the brink. Economy for $5,000 brand new. You won't win any races with it, but it will start every day and run despite your best efforts. Mid-high 20s for MPG, cheap parts, easy to fix. Can't go wrong for a first car!"
Paid $500, spent $200 in parts. Gas tank with pump, valve cover gasket, complete tune up, outer tie rods. Had it fixed up in a week. Replaced driver's side floor pan with an old stop sign I had laying around. No trouble codes and the lighter still works LOL!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How do you "review" a car that has had ZERO miles driven since purchase?

Or comment on a car you never drove, ridden in or owned. Or any other personal connection. Just a google search. The guy just got it and his enthusiasm is still fresh enough to add a comment. I only rode in this model when new. A basic, practical car and was roomy front and back. Easy to get in and out of for a taller person. Not a lot to add, but some actual experience.
