I believe the V8s in old Dodge vehicles are unbeatable
Brake pads, brake pads, and more brake pads.
This Dodge just keeps going and going.
It does not handle like a modern car, and it also feels very light, and seems to slide across pot holes, but no matter where I steer it, it will go, unlike the much heavier Crown Vic I had a few years ago, that was just dreadful when under pressure.
It is not a big car compared to the modern bloated fish tanks out nowadays. In fact the back seat has very little legroom; most of its size is in the long hood, which really does not need to be so long, considering the engine only takes up 3/4 of it.
But the only reason I keep it, is it is completely reliable and has never left me stranded. The only thing is, what it does not cost to get fixed at a garage, it makes up for it at the gas station. I always know before any journey that I am going to get to my destination without breaking down, unlike a lot of the premium imported brands, new or old. The only downside is the cost of gasoline today, but still, it is a free world, and I choose to keep the old Diplomat for as long as I can.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
