"This car is like a one man car show. The Prowler is hardly ever seen on the road these days. People always want to ask questions about the car every time you stop to fill up with gas. Miles and Miles of smiles."
Cons: "rough ride not a lot of room for luggage or storage"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have had many sports cars and beauty for automobiles that this car demanded more looks than any I have ever had gives all the fun of having a motorcycle but not the worry of people not seeing you. Cannot imagine ever selling this car though someday my grandchildren will be very happy and probably make a nice profit. The car should have a great collectibility"
"I love the style and look of the Prowler.It rides like a sport car not a Buick.It was made in the U.S.A on a assembly line,with the Viper.You could not build a hotrod on your own for the price.I am happy with the horse power.Most of the high end cars today have 6 and 4 cylinder motors in them so whats the big deal. You can,t have every thing on any car! This Car will still look great 100 years from now.You will never see another car company build a hotrod. I would recommend a Prowler to anyone,I have had 2 corvettes and this car handles better,looks better,and holds its value better. Semper-Fi."
"Let's face it, most people love the way this car looks. I have many vehicles...classics, luxury and modern sports cars, but this car gets more attention than any of them! Most people don't even know what it is! They cant figure out if it's new, old or a hand built custom. If you don't like attention...this is NOT the car for you. Everywhere you go, every stop you make, you WILL be questioned. It appeals to everyone from 5 to 95 years old.
Unfortunately, this car does NOT drive and perform as good as it looks. It's underpowered, rough, shaky and cheap feeling when driving. If the roads aren't glass smooth, plan on getting irritated with the ride long before you have to stop and take a leak. You will however, have to stop often 'cause it only holds a little more than ten gallons of gas and the fuel gauge is unpredictable at best. It was obviously designed as a local cruiser. You will have enough room in the trunk for some detailing supplies and a jacket....THAT's IT! EVERYONE is shocked at the lack of space available in this car. The exhaust system fails to make a sound that stirs your soul. The sound it does make is almost embarrassing! A combination of a two stroke golf cart and a Buick with a hole in the muffler! It's screaming "I SHOULD'VE HAD A V8!".
Handling is pretty good when the roads get twisty, but again...only if the roads are PERFECT.
It probably sounds like I'm dogging this car. However, it has such a quirky personality, it grows on you. You feel proud to own such a unique and rare car. It feels as though you are driving a 70 year old classic but when you look in the rear view mirror you are comforted by the presence of an on-board computer and thermometer. Steering wheel mounted radio controls, climate control, and the CD changer also soothes the aches and pains of the poor build quality. I'm always thinking...why did they build this thing! But my next thought is always....I'm glad they did!!"
"This thing is bumpy, no storage, not worth 30k. A Mercedes or BMW is where you should put your money. You pay 30k, trade in value 22 ? You do the math. But if you hold on to it for maybe 20 years, when it become "HISTORIC", it may be worth something (I hope !!)"
"Beautiful Car along with Great Value compare to car at the same price range. Gets all kind of attention everywhere you go. If you do not want to be notice from the crowd; then this is not the car for you."
