Summary:

For the money I paid, the car has been well worth it

Faults:

My only complaint would be the style of the car. Not the cutest, but, hey what do you want for 500? That and the seats could be a little more comfortable. Long drives can be a pain.

General Comments:

I bought this car for 500 dollars with 110,000 on it. We replaced both axle bearings when we bought the car. Replaced brake pads and emergency brak pad. Did a quick tune up on the car, bought new tires and replaced the clutch. Total cost roughly 1000 bucks (mind you we did all the labor).

Since then I have put 7,000 on the car and we're still doing fine.

Small hole in exhaust system, but no leaks (yet). The is a considerable amount of rust on the roof, but we are sanding the car down, and repainting this weekend, so that should be good as new.

Gas mileage is great. 30 mpg. Takes 25 dollars to fill this baby up. Lasts for about 2 weeks depending on how I drive..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

A Go-Cart with a windshield!

Faults:

The shift knob kept falling off when I tried to shift.

One of the tires developed a leak and would not hold pressure at all.

The Fuel tank breather valve is jammed open, so when I fill the tank all the way gas squirts out the top and leaks as I drive down the road. So long as I only put five gallons in at a time this isn't a problem.

General Comments:

This car is about as basic as they come. No radio, a/c, cigarette lighter, or cruise control.

While the four speed transmission is a little awkward at high speed, it does shift easily and silently.

The tiny engine sounds like a sewing machine, but it runs smoothly throughout the rpm range.

The car does not like to turn quickly, such as an emergency turn, due to the narrow tires. Wider tires would make all the difference.

The Brakes in this car are amazing. It will go from full speed to zero in no time at all, with very little skidding.

All in all, it's a great little runner.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I think this car is OK, but mine has no radio or anything like that at all if any body knows where I can find a CD player for a 1992 Dodge Colt hatchback then please e-mail at iluvjess16@sbcglobal.net.

I have just purchased a 90 colt 100e base model. it has a 5 speed, you sure you don't have a 5 speed too??

This is the writer of the post for this a four speed. The five speed transmission was one of the options available when the car was new. Mine is the most basic version of the car available in 1992.
