1989 Dodge Daytona Base 2.5L 4 cylinder from North America
Sporty cheap and reliable
Had to replace the dash lights.
Will need rear shocks soon.
Left side speakers are currently out.
Paint is flaking off on the rear of the car.
Small amount of rust on passenger door.
This is my second Dodge Daytona. It almost drives as good as the first (new in 1988). Comfortable interior. Drives very well for 14 years old. Great on gas! Pickup seems to have dropped on it, but once it's up to speed, will run all day there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Update on this 1989 Dodge Daytona.
Current mileage: 127,000.
I was wrong about the left side speakers, problem was the radio.
Replaced the suspension wear items (Shocks/Struts), brakes, and fuel system (yes, the WHOLE system).
Overall, I can't complain. The car has never left me stranded and continues to be fun. Probably going to start restoring it in the summer of 2005. Needs some body work, 16 years in New England will rust the best of cars.
