1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0 from North America


I absolutely got a great deal when I bought this one!


Throttle Position Sensor malfunctioned at about 110,000 miles.

Transmission starting to go, needs a re-build.

General Comments:

I love this car! I bought it with semi-high mileage and haven't had any real problems with it, other than expected maintenance and wear.

It has 123,000 miles on it and I'm just now having to sink some real money into it.

The body is still great, it still runs great.

It's the perfect amount of space for myself, 2 sons and my very tall boyfriend.

1999 Plymouth Breeze Expresso 2.0 from North America


Not so good


December of 2005, 4 months after buying this car, I had a rear main seal leak.

January of 2006, the front right tie rod was replaced.

In February of 2007, I had to replace my transmission speed sensor.

March of 2007, I replaced my left front tie rod.

May of 2007, both front wheel bearings.

As of right now, July 2007, I have no power steering because the pump went out.

My rotors are warped, and my brake pedal and steering wheel shake when I brake, and squeak when I am driving slowly.

I believe I have a leak in my exhaust because my car is getting louder.

My car, when driving down the straight highway at a set speed (say 70), it feels like I'm taking my foot off the gas pedal when I'm really not. It feels like it's missing and kind of jerks forward...

General Comments:

Other than all of that... a pretty good car.

1999 Plymouth Breeze Expresso 2.4L I4 DOHC from North America


Safe, reliable, cheap


Door locks seize up periodically and need to be oiled or else they can't be opened from the outside. After 2 years the driver's side door lock seized completely and even the dealer could not fix it.

A sensor in the transmission has failed twice, preventing the car from shifting. It's a cheap fix, but annoying.

The electrical system malfunctioned and the cause has not yet been determined. This is after 140,000 miles though, so I cut the car a little slack.

General Comments:

I have had almost no serious problems with this car. It has been incredibly reliable for the last 5 years. It is getting old now and little problems keep popping up, little engine hiccups, etc. but that is to be expected after all the miles I have put on it.

The ride in this car is very smooth. The interior is quite roomy, even for 4 people. I drove from upstate New York straight down to Florida with 3 passengers (4 total people) plus all of our luggage, and the trip was quite easy.

Handling is great. The car feels very nimble, especially for a mid-sized. Indeed, I prefer the handling on this car to that of many smaller cars that I have driven.

Gas mileage is great. I average around 28mpg, even with city driving, which is better than I was told I would get.

The acceleration has never been that great, and it has gotten a bit worse each year. Passing on a two lane road is always interesting.

The speaker system in this car is actually very good. The bass is powerful and the sound is crisp. I have made no upgrades to the system.

Overall I can't say enough about this car. It has been more reliable than I could have dreamed. It survived 4 winters in the Adirondack mountains with hardly a complaint, several cross country trips, and it is only recently (120,000+ miles) that problems have started appearing. Its certainly not flashy or all that powerful, but it's a sure bet.

1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.4 4 cylinder from North America


This car is attractive, roomy, comfortable, reliable, and economically friendly


The speed sensor was replaced at around 26,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car is a very reliable, comfortable, practical vehicle. The interior of the car is engineered to fit around the driver and includes extremely comfortable bucket seats. The middle console is very useful and pleasing to the eye.

The 2.4L 4 cylinder engine has enough punch to put your head in the headrest, and has tight, responsive steering. This car is economically friendly because of its 25/30 mpg (city/hwy).

This car is an overall wonderful vehicle to own, a delight to drive, and a pleasure to write about.

I agree.

I own Plymouth Breeze myself.

It is my first car.

It is has stylish curves that make it attractive.

The Breeze is very easy to drive and handle.

It also offers good visibility.

Plymouth did a great job making the Breeze.

The Breeze is a gem because it is the last plymouth car model ever made.

I love my 1999 Plyouth Breeze.

I will drive it until the end of time.
