1987 Dodge Daytona Base 2.5L from North America
A worthy used car
Replaced camshaft and timing belt ($500) to eliminate engine noise/wear.
Valve cover gaskets tend to leak, camshafts wear, engine life expectancy is < 160,000 miles.
Electrical problems are common with these cars, a work connection on the dash headlight switch caused my pop-up lights to not work.
I wouldn't have bought one new, but this is my second Daytona and they are fantastic as a (cheap) used car.
The car is geared aggressively, generally low-maintenance, and very good on gas.
It has the most comfortable seats of any car I've ever been in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
