This is a great car, but if you have the Power Limited Light on, don't ignore it. Turn the key On-off On-off On without starting and watch the number of times it flashes before each pause--you'll get a code like Flash Flash pause Flash Flash Flash pause Flash (x5) Flash (x5). This indicates your code is 2355. 23 stands for the problem that needs to be fixed (change air inlet temperature sensor) and 55 stands for the end of transmission. If your code is longer, perhaps 233555 it indicates you also have problem #35 (radiator fan relay circuit). Check the Mopar site for information on what these codes mean -- it will extend the life of your vehicle.

Sorry the reviewer had a bad experience, but I couldn't disagree more. I currently own a '84 Turbo Z that is still going strong. The only real problem with this car is the fact that the head gasket needs to be replaced about every 60 to 80 thousand miles. Put in the Mopar Performance gasket, and that eliminates that problem. I test drove a Camaro of the same year, and the Daytona won hands down. Sounds to me that the dealer's service department was clueless. Couldn't correct door hinges??

I bought a demo Daytona with 15k miles on it. I drove it for several years after. I had it over in Germany on the autobahn when I was in the Army and boy was that fun. Car drove excellent and I did not have any major problems out of the car. Turbo did glow excessively red hot like it was going to melt, took it in to the dealer they found nothing wrong assumed it was normal. I drove the car several years and traded it in in 1994 for a Mustang GT.
The car was beautiful and the interior was very nice. My only regret now was I wished I still had the car now. It'll be a collector item soon.
