When I began looking for a new car, I took an immediate interest in the Dodge Stealths for sale in my area, having always thought them a superbly stylish car. The one I found was very high-mileage, but because of that it was very cheap. I figured I would have to do a ton of repairs to it, because I had read some very negative things about the reliability of the Stealth. Thankfully, this one never read those comments, it has worked wonderfully since the day I purchased it. The previous owner was a Stealth nut and took good care of it. He told me beforehand that the clutch was wearing and would need to be replaced soon, as well as the tie rods. Previous owners care is very important when buying a used car, and I was fortunate enough to get my car from a good owner.
A word on performance: this car isn't the fastest thing off the ling, make no mistake. My ES model has beaten some Camaros, Firebirds, and Mustangs that wanted a little run. However, the newer Camaros and Firebird Formulas will beat it, and don't even think of going toe-to-toe with a Vette or something stupid. For those not interesting in blazing stoplight-to-stoplight performance though, it's a treat. It will readily accelerate in any gear, and has passing power even at 100mph. The handling is exceptionally responsive, and it sticks to the road extremely well. And on top of that, the Stealth looks great while doing it.
Fuel efficiency is not too bad. I am getting much better mileage than the car is rated for, about 24 mpg city and 28 highway. It's a bit down from the 35-40 of my previously-owned CRX, but that's to be expected.
The Stealth is comfortable for driver and passenger, but don't expect to fit two people, or even one large person, in the back seats. They're for looks mostly, and occasionally some luggage. Also, there is enough head room for even tall people. I'm 6'1" and have no problem getting in and out of the car.
I would recommend looking into a Stealth for anyone who's thinking about getting a similar era Camaro or the like. It's a more unique car with great looks and decent performance. If you can get a well-maintained one, it's great drive, and in my opinion a great buy.
