Previous carDodge Dynasty

Summary:

You can't beat a good Dodge, and the Dynasty is a good one

Faults:

I've had to put two transmissions in the car since we bought it in '97, and the seats haven't withstood the test of time very well.

This car's front end needs to be aligned more than most front wheel drive cars should.

General Comments:

Dodge is usually known for using very good transmissions in their cars and trucks. Be ready to shell out a couple of bucks here and there to keep this model Dynasty's working smoothly.

Very smooth ride, but its not the best car in the world for taking curves at high speeds.

My Dynasty's motor (3.3l V6) is still extremely strong after all this time.

This car delivers plenty of power, and being FWD most of it makes it to the ground. This car will move, and given the chance.. It'll move you.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Good car - great car :)

Faults:

Well, the transmission went out 1 month after I bought it. $1,400 dollars later I was on the road again.

The main serpentine belt broke shortly after that and was replaced without incident.

The oil pressure sensor went out and was replaced.

The hub assemblies all the way around the car have been replaced and packed with new bearings.

A new windshield was installed in July 2001 (car ahead of me sent a rock flying and my windshield caught it).

The clock display on the radio has gone out, but the radio still works.

General Comments:

I am very meticulous about my car and keep it clean and waxed. I also keep the inside exceptionally clean and the interior is as good as new.

I run Prolong in the gas tank and in the crankcase. I also run transmission treatment stuff in the transmission casing. I also keep my engine very clean, using Armor All on all the hoses to keep them supple.

This car is in great shape and still gets 27 MPG when on the freeway with the V6.

It has a lot of miles, but has never let me down. It starts well, drives well, acts well and looks well. I would love to have another one of these cars if one became available for a good price.

I originally paid $4,995 for it back in November 1999 and could still get $3,200 for it now.

The Die-Nasty is a perfect car for a young driver. It's easy to drive, easy to insure, and a stealth speeder. It has a reputation as a old-persons vehicle, and hence police will not give it a second glance. Back in my younger days, while all of my friends were getting monstrous speeding tickets and paying a fortune for insurance, the die-nasty kept me out of trouble and kept money in my pocket. It is a real shame that they aren't produced anymore, as I owned two and both went to over 400,000 km before they finally died. Highly recommended.

My Die-nasty aka Bedrock. 1992 - 2005. Where can I start? I got it back in 2001 for $900 and it was my first car. Very deceptive to others when doing a little street racing on my way home from a night out partying. Roomy like a New Yorker and quick acceleration like a go-kart. I wish I had something positive to say about the die-nasty, but it was getting behind times. Everything broke down on me and proved to be too costly to repair. Perfect College car, however. Moved everything from my dorm room into my car all the way home in one trip. I just lost mine in a car accident. He was only 13. R.I.P.
