1990 Dodge Dynasty from North America
It was as if God himself had put her together
The car belonged to my parents before I owned it. they had to replace the transmission at 100,000 miles. That cost about 2000 us dollars.
The radiator cracked at 120K miles, and that cost me a paltry 100 us dollars.
Other than that, the only thing the car required was its regular oil changes.
My only regret in life is that I totaled this car. My dynasty was a true luxury car in that is was richly appointed with comfortable seats, power everything, and a ride as smooth as glass.
When you combined that smooth as glass ride with a surprisingly powerful engine, you wound up with some pretty impressive performance. while the average sports car could beat my dynasty to 60 mph, my dynasty could catch up to them at around 80mph, beat them to 100 mph, and thanks to the luxury suspension, I could usually hold higher speeds then the sports cars in turns and on rough surfaces.
Another neat thing, in comparison to sports cars, was that inspite of the fact that I was roaring around all over the county at speeds in excess of 120 MPH, I was never pulled over. Whenever cops see a dynasty, they automatically assume "Little old lady" and go hunting for someone else to pull over. I swear I drove through a school zone at 7:30 in the morning doing 50, and the local sheriff just flashed his lights at me and let me go about my business. When I got my Honda civic, I couldn't so much as smile at a cop without them pulling me over.
The only problem I ever noted involved the cars' long wheelbase. The car would scrape whenever going over certain railroad tracks or high peaked intersections.
I totaled my dynasty the very first time I drove on snow. I overshot a turn and went into a tree line at approximately 35 mph. The car did a good job of absorbing the impact and I walked away from the accident without so much as a scratch. I've had three cars since then, and I still miss my Dynasty. She was simply the best car that I have ever seen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
