Summary:

Best bang for the buck I've spent!

Faults:

When I got the car everything had been replaced on it except for the radiator, and the engine. I have the car's history, and nothing wore out before its time, but at 259,000 miles my engine has blown.

My seats are worn badly.

My radiator now has a small leak, but it is fine for now.

General Comments:

This car is great for comfort. Very spacious.

However, the Dynasty doesn't handle the greatest.

Ran like a Singer sewing machine with 255,000 miles on it.

My family owns 2 almost identical gold Dynasty's; we love them so much.

A great car for a young driver!!!

Previous carIsuzu Trooper

Summary:

My personal favorite of all my cars (well, almost)

Faults:

Considering the mileage on the car, there has been little to go wrong with it:

1. Transmission - 90,000 miles (typical Dodge tranny problem)

2. Light Wiring Harness - 162,000 miles - Lights went out and burned up the wiring, typical and no biggie to fix.

3. Axle bushings - 130,000 miles- had one go out and replaced them all as a precaution.

4. Muffler - has two of these, the first one included the pipe all the way back to the catalytic converter. typical maintenance stuff.

5. Serpentine Belt - 87,000 miles - had to drive two miles into town without belt on and it still runs as good as the day I got it.

General Comments:

I take impeccable care of my vehicles. This vehicle is a prime example of what a vehicle can be if you take good care of it and maintain it. It has been driven almost everyday since November 1999 and it has never failed on the road once (except for flat tires or blowouts). This car has been all over my state and in other states by me, because I was in a band that travelled n the road in a few states. I have never been more satisfied with a car than I have with the Dynasty. I currently have a 1990 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE Minivan, a 1985 EL Camino (All original), and the Dynasty. I choose the Dynasty more than the others when I need to 'get somewhere fast'. I know that I there is an emergency and I need to get in and go, the Dynasty is going to be there for me. Dodge built a great car with this model and was a great pre-cursor to the Intrepid. You cannot really tell that this car is 10 years old and has 165,000 miles on it. It looks brand new inside and out; even in the engine bay. Clean enough to eat off of. I like the Dynasty really the best, but I also have that El Camino and it is my favorite too. For the 'get up and go' factor, the Dynasty wins out over all, hands down. Truly one of the best the Dodge ever made.

Summary:

A very underrated automobile

Faults:

Oil leaks a small amount from the valve covers.

This car is very comfortable, reliable, and has plenty of power.

This Dynasty beat a 1996 Grand Prix with a bigger motor and only 45,000 miles in a drag race.

This car has a great amount of trunk space.

Summary:

Very affordable luxury sports sedan

Faults:

Ignition switch @ 130K.

Battery, Firestone tire @ 130.5K.

Cylinder head & 2 push rods & 131.5K (from over-revving).

Power steering pulley & serpentine belt @ 133K (my fault, I hit a curb).

Engine control computer @ 136K.

General Comments:

This car has given me a few maintenance problems.

However, it performs like a sports car half its size.

It's great on gas for a full size sedan.

And it's as comfy and luxurious as a Caddy.
