1995 Dodge Spirit 3.0 V6 from North America
Most reliable car I've owned
Replaced ball joints at 75,000 miles.
Radiator at 85,000.
Fuel pump relay at 120,000 miles.
Driveshafts at 125,000 miles.
Everything else has been normal wear items like brakes, belts, hoses, etc.
Original stainless exhaust still in tact.
Not a real refined car, but has only let me down once when the fuel pump relay quit working. Good mileage for a 6 cyl. (26-32 mpg)
Car is easy on tires and batteries. 84,000 miles from last set of tires, replaced original battery last winter!!
Headlights are not the best, A/C is losing capacity.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

If that is the most reliable car you have owned then hopefully one day you will have the money for a real car. and with only 135K on it those problems you stated mean the car is actually horribly unreliable.

You are actually very lucky I have the same car and had to start making those repairs at around 35,000 miles. This car has been the worst thing that I ever bought. The air conditioner stopped working the first year, and requires being fixed every 3 months if I want to use it.

I have a 1992 Dodge Spirit and can't get the fuel system working on it again. It appeared that the fuel pump went out. My first thought was that the fuel pump relay went out, however I couldn't find reference to it in either manual that I purchased. Plus a local auto parts store told me that the relay was most likely part of the fuel pump assembly. After replacing the fuel pump because it appeared to be not working, I was surprised when it still wouldn't work. No one seems to know where the fuel pump relay is located! I've called auto parts stores, dealerships, and local repair shops. The only relays that I can find on the entire car are located by the battery. Does anyone know anything about the fuel pump relay for this car? Please e-mail any advice to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
