I just found a 89 Raider with little under 140k miles on it. It's got a V6, not sure on liter sizes, but it's manual 5 speed, and I am gonna pay $1200. I have seen all but positive reviews, just wondering if I got a good deal on it? Body is in good shape, interior isn't bad.

Email is f_blank4@hotmail.com, thanks.

I am about to buy a 1988 Dodge Raider with 120k miles, the body is really perfect, it has a 2 years old fresh paint, it has a manual transmission and the only problem there is that it drank oil and I've got to change the gas tank... I really feel like buying it, should I?? It's only $1200 and it comes with winter tires.

I am about to buy a 1989 Raider V6 auto with 150k, nice body and interior. The price is $1400. I think this is fair. The owner says he has owned three of them, and the same engine Dodge uses in their mini vans will go into these. I hope to enjoy this vehicle for many years to come. Thanks.

I have a 1987 Dodge Raider, and I love it, but I cannot get it to go into Over Drive. When I get up to 45 mph, it will not shift up to another gear. It is an automatic. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

The reason the Dodge Raiders drink oil is because of head gaskets.

I'm thinking of buying a 89 Raider on Monday morning. Leaks a little oil and transmission fluid. And so far that's the only thing I've found. I have a mechanic checking it tomorrow. Tires are in fair condition with a little dry rot. Outside is amazing condition! Inside is good condition. My question is, for 230k miles, is 2,900 a fair price? You can email me at erica.sasser@yahoo.com. Thank you!!

Is $2900 for a 1989 Raider with 230K miles a "fair price"?

It's a great price! For the seller, that is.

Not you.

I have a 89 Raider V6 3.0L. Paid $100 for it a couple of months ago. At that time it only needed a fuel pump.

Now I have a problem; when I first start it, the RPM at 1-1/2, it runs for a few minutes, then the RPM drops to 0 and it stops running. Does anybody know anything about this? I had it looked at and the person looking at it gave me 3 opinions, and I don't want to buy anything until I know I need it. But he suggested it could be a heater coil, radiator, or brain box?

Any help would be appreciated.

I was wondering if you could tell me how you found a gas tank for your Raider? I need one and I'm having difficulty finding one. Could you email me at bustedstar@gmail.com

Just wondering if you ever found a replacement fuel tank for your Raider?
