Cheap Best Car I Have Ever Owned
Right off the bat I had to replace the brain and battery. Very cheap. Easy to find parts for this car. I have had to replace the battery again. It tends to eat batteries. I put on a new set of tires within the first 4 months.
I have put 50,000 miles on this car in 3 years and it WILL NOT DIE!! I laugh everytime I think of it. I have owned several ford vans, mercedes, toyota, etc. This is by far the ugliest car I have ever owned; but, I can't sell it. And, who would buy it?? it is so old now and so ugly and I have abused it so bad and it just keeps on going. My initial cost for the car 3 years ago was $850.00 plus the minor costs as I mentioned above, approximately $450.00 including the new tires. This has been the best $1300.00 I have ever spent. I have been looking for another car to buy, but I will keep this one as my dependable back up. It handles the road real good still and loves to get out on the open highway; doesn't care too much for in town driving, but tolerates it in hopes for that next long haul drive on the highway. If you buy one of these cars... GET THE V6 engine not the 4 cylinder. There appears to be quite a difference. Also, I heard that the Dodge spirit or Dodge intrepid is the same exact car. Good Luck with your Acclaim.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
