1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z 2.2L turbo from North America
Sweetest 80's sports car ever!
CV axle blew at 99k miles, and brake lines blew out at 103k miles.
Brake lines blew out due to rust. It was a Pennsylvania car all its life. Road salt caused bad undercarriage rust.
First got this car when I was 16, and had it until I turned 20. Absolutely loved it to death; the only reason I sold it was because I joined the military, and my dad didn't want to take care of it while I was gone.
Mine had the Super 60 package, so performance computer, camshaft, injectors, and manual boost controller. Super fast, super reliable, and super comfortable. I've never driven a car that had a more comfortable driver seat.
Mine was a loaded model with leather, sunroof, 12-button navigator, and other goodies. Mustangs and Camaros were always embarrassed to find out they were beat by a 135ci 4-cylinder Dodge.
I would highly recommend any Daytona to anyone who wants a cheap, reliable, and fun to drive car. I own an '88 Daytona Shelby Z now at my current assignment, and it's even more of a blast to drive!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
