1987 Dodge Colt DL 1.5 2BBL from North America
Good Daily Commuter
Nothing major so far.
The only thing I have had to replace is a broken shift cable for the automatic shifter.
I brought this car because it was small and seemed like it would be a good run around car. So far it has performed well without any major problems, knock on wood! The only draw back is with the car being carburated, so you get some serious lack on acceleration during the initial take off. Once you get moving past 35 miles per hour the car is actually pretty peppy for only having a 68HP engine in it, but the gas mileage is not all that I expected, but I also blame this on the carburetor too. The engine mounts appear to be worn so the car vibrates until it is warmed up, but I can live with that. The interior and exterior was taken very good care of and is in great condition and the car rides pretty well for such a small compact car. The only draw back is it does not handle bumpy roads well.
Overall for $950.00 the car appears to be a good deal, but I am currently looking to sell it to buy something with more room. This car is a excellent car for a student or someone who is looking for a compact car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
