1991 Dodge Spirit 2.5 from North America
Good, cheap reliable car
Front passenger power window no longer works.
Power locks don't work properly.
Sometimes, while driving, there is a slight hitching. The car doesn't quit, it's just obnoxious, and mechanics seem puzzled as to what's causing it.
This car has great pick-up, especially since it has over 360 000 kilometers on the original motor and transmission.
It's also great on gas, easy on oil, and parts are resonably priced.
The car is very roomy and reasonably comfy.
It has no problem turning over during the winter months (even in minus 25 degree Celsius weather!).
On the downside, the paint on the roof tends to peel a fair bit.
The engine is quite loud.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 91 Spirit, and when I read your review, it was like ready about my own car! (Although, mine now has about 450 000 km). As for the problem you're having, I had the same one. I changed the air filter and put some combustion chamber conditioner through it, and it never did it again.
