Summary:

Great Ride

Faults:

I wrecked it. Other than that, it's great.

General Comments:

This car is very quick, a real upgrade from my previous ride, a 1986 Honda Accord.

I don't feel that the car handles all that great. It sticks to the road, but at low speeds the steering wheel feels stiff.

It's tough: I hit a ditch at around 45 miles per hour- I came out with a grass stain and my car was back less than a month later.

The car is still a blast to drive! I can't think of a car I've driven that is this much fun.

Although it's 2003, the car still looks great, really sporty.

I bought a 91 Plymouth Laser, a sister car to the Mitsubishi Eclipse and the Eagle Talon to save money. more bang for the buck, sort of speaking. originally, I thought it was a blast and a real beauty to say the least! then came reality - buying new tires at $200 each. of course, it took curves very well, but took its toll on the wallet. At 15,000 miles it stopped dead when the timing chain went and it took its toll on the engine for repair. later it kept popping out of gear and my friend had the same problem with hers too. sure it moves and handles quite well and the stereo system was a blast, but it has its problems and soon was traded in for a more practical machine.

Summary:

Dream car!

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with it other than it needing spark plugs and an air filter.

General Comments:

I love this car! It is so fun to drive and handles like a dream.

Wonderful on gas! 400+ miles to the gallon.

Very quick and I always get looks while driving it.

Summary:

It is reliable with a lot of power

Faults:

My alternator went out, but that's no big deal. My brakes went bad a couple of months ago. And the biggest thing was my transmission. I have had to have it serviced about 7 times since it was rebuilt the first time.

General Comments:

My car handles great even without lowering it and all of the atermarket parts.

I like the power, it has beat quite a few cars around where I live.

I just wish that someone would make more aftermarket parts for it.

Previous carChevrolet Corsica

Summary:

A car well worth buying!

Faults:

Timing belt broke at 161000 KM. As well as the timing cover was cracked.

Transmission slips.

Passenger side wqindow comes out of its track when opened.

Power steering lines rusted through and leaked.

Catalytic converter went at 159000 KM.

Hydraulic trunk supports stopped working, so I had to use vice grips to hold up the trunk.

General Comments:

I find that this car inside is very small. When I get 4 people into the car we have no room at all.

This car also has bad blind spots.

Despite the small area inside and the blind spots this car is fast. It only has a 1.8 SOHC 92 HP engine, but it is quick with the exhaust and performance filter I put on.

It also is good at cornering, I take take corners quick and she holds great!

Summary:

An Overall Alright Car..

Faults:

Power steering lines rusted though and made fluid leak all over the place.

Timing Belt went at 160,000 kilometers.

Timing cover had to be replaced, (expensive for a stupid piece of plastic from a dealer)

Idle is off and needs to be re adjusted.

General Comments:

Overall I like this car, I put in my custom stereo and it sounds great! I have 4 subwoofers (2 8 inch and 2 10 inch) a 160 watt CD player and a 1000 watt amplifier, as well as 2 6X9 Speakers.

This car I bought off of my fathers friend for $500 and replaced the timing belt myself and the timing cover, and I am currently fixing the power steering lines.

If you notice it says down below that the kilometers from when I got it until now are the same... this is due to the fact that it currently sits in my driveway. I am only 17 and insurance in canada for young males is KILLER! I'm talking $3800 a year! so until I get a full time job, there it sits...

You're getting hosed on insurance. That is unheard of here in the states. I pay $90 bucks a month and I am a 17 year old male.
