Summary:

Yesterday's sports car, today's treasure

Faults:

Driver's seat has mild wear and tear.

Shifter boot is badly worn.

ECS was malfunctioning when bought, resulting in TOUR/SPORT light flashing and non-functioning ECS.

Clutch is almost gone.

Random stain on dashboard.

Defroster vents are warped and cracked.

Right power window wasn't functioning when car was bought.

General Comments:

Awesome styling.

Firm Sport suspension option is excellent for tight cornering.

Flip-up headlights are stylish and give the car a sporty look.

Acceleration is over the top compared with my last car.

Despite thinning clutch, the 5-speed tranny is still in showroom condition, allowing for fast and precise shifting.

Despite the car not being the R/T TT, it's still faster than most cars on the road.

Unique styling earns looks from everyone.

The Dodge Stealth, being already rare, is even rarer due to the teal/bluish color it's got. Less than 100 Stealths were painted with this color, I believe.

Never, never, NEVER will I forget such an awesome car.

My name is Drake Javener and I have a 1991 Stealth R/T non-turbo with that paint color, and have had same problems other than the ECS problem.

Summary:

Dependable, long lasting, daily driver

Faults:

Normal wear and tear parts have been replaced such as the alternator, starter, radiator, ball joints, front wheel bearings, steering rack, ECU computer rebuild, and tranny rebuild at 185k miles. All to be expected at such a high mileage.

Heater core and A/C are still running strong.

General Comments:

This has been my longest lasting, most durable vehicle to date. Those that complain about the reliability aren't following maintenance schedules. One person claims that the belt snapping at 72k miles was a bad thing. Well you are supposed to change it every 60k miles! If you maintain it, it will last very long. I've got 272k miles to date on the original engine! The SOHC will never die.

Everything replaced was to be expected for the miles and all of these things were replaced after 175k miles. The tranny needed to be rebuilt because of the syncros going out, but they did last a long time. This car has been in seven accidents (no joke and not my fault) and still looks good. It has even bounced back from being declared totaled in 2003.

I know this car can last past 300K, but the rocker panels are now starting to rust because I live in salty road Michigan, so I might hit 300k and sell it to buy a newer one or a 3000GT.

I agree. Look, cars are meant to be driven AND maintained. If you maintain it, it will theoretically last forever, right?! My '91 Stealth, which I bought brand new, I have still with me because I love the car!

I had the engine & tranny replaced, but after 19 years it is expected, AND because there are no cars like this around anymore, a purist and a car enthusiast will keep it around.

Plus $2,000 here and $3,500 there is better than $30,000 to $40,000 for a rolling computer that won't give you as much fun or stories! Especially if you're attached to the car.

A machine will last only as long as you maintain it! Long live the Stealth, and those who are passionate about cars! Be well my friends!

Rims started to go bad at 45k because I didn't care of them. Tires, breaks and oil changes, regular maintenance.

General Comments:

1991 Dodge Stealth R/T. Great car, owned it since 1996.

Not many problems, just a few as listed above.

Very fast car, handles great around turns, and can pick up speed quickly, EX. I was driving back from work and this guy in a mitsibushi eclipse cut me off. We were at the light and he wanted to race, At the light I ripped it (floored it) and I left him so bad its not even funny.

Looks great, but is very expensive on parts, Gas is pretty good.

Interior is amazing, All the information you need is there and it comes with a very unique feature, Climate Control, allows you to set to a certan temperatue and will turn off automatically when it has reached that temperature.

Right now the car is not running, It has very little kilometers, It's not running because I haven't driven it for a few months, Now it needs a little tune up to run again. It will start, but is very ruff.

Needs a new battery and a tune up.
