1992 Dodge Colt 200 GT 1.5L from North America
It's been a reliable vehicle for city driving for nearly 20 years
* Battery needed replacement 3 times.
* Spark plugs have been replaced about 3 times.
* Alternator needed replacement.
* Distributor unit may need replacement soon.
* O2 sensor may need replacement.
* Oil pan gasket needs replacement due to oil leaks.
It has been reliable and dependable.
It never had air conditioning nor electric windows, so it can get uncomfortable during the summer time.
It is a basic car, nothing fancy.
It is relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain.
Parts are getting harder to come by, but are relatively cheap due to their availability from 3rd party sources.
I might be able to keep driving it for another 70 to 100,000 kilometers (40- to 60,000 miles). Possibly a bit more.
Overall, it did the job it was supposed to & met the expectations when I bought it.
It never me down except when the alternator needed replacement.
Best to keep a portable battery booster & set of basic tools handy with a car of this age.
Downsides - burns a lot of oil & carbon emissions are relatively high for vehicles from this year and compared with new car models. Oil leaks may be common.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
