1992 Plymouth Laser RS 2.0 Non Turbor from North America
A run for fun vehicle
Had to put a rebuilt 2.0 engine in this vehicle.
The transmission slips.
All the audio speakers are busted.
Seats have started to wear.
The temperature is running high even after changing the water pump.
Will replace temperature sensor.
This car is very quick and handles well on the road. However the blind spots are a major concern. So I'll be adding blind spot mirrors. I also on a 1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse car. The Eclipse has a 1.8 engine in it. The reason for purchasing the Laser is the joy of driving the Eclipse. The 2.0 engine in the Laser really rocks and puts a smile on face. I have heard Honda and other talk negative about these cars. But when the rubber meets the vehicles hold their own. If someone purchases the Laser and put the time in for the repairs. They will enjoy the benefits of driving this car. In my case I paid $700 & $800 for two vehicles. Some would say they where not worth it. I say drive them and then you tell me. If you can't afford a muscle car then purchase any these models.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have enjoyed my Plymouth Laser RS, but I have had problems with the alternator. And, I have had engine problems as far as the belts whining. Other than that, this car is a fast vehicle. I enjoy it very much.

I bought my 1992 Plymouth Laser RS AWD turbo in 1999. It had just over 100000 miles. Soon as I drove it, I knew it was the car for me. I paid $3700 in 1999, out the door. It's now May 2, 2008 and I am still pleased with the car. I look at newer cars but haven't found anything better than 24 MPG, high performance and great handling. Of course I've put $$$ into it over the years. In 2006 at approximately 168,000, I put in a rebuilt long block and transmission; total cost something over 3K, well worth the $$$. Until something better comes along, I'll be sticking with my Laser. BTW, I believe the timing belt should be replaced every 60,000 miles. Check owners manual.
