"Good hobby car. Strong performance w/Northstar V8 but you'll pay for it in mileage (12-14 mpg). Parts are expensive and difficult to find. Many plastic components that you would not expect on such a high-priced car when new...and some are beginning to suffer from age."
"I have a love hate relationship with my car. Its a Blast to drive, but hate to have to repair it. Parts are hard to come by and repairs are expensive if you are not a weekend mechanic. Resale is currently very low, so if you got a few extra dollars and you want to turn heads this is the car for you. Good investment if you stick it in the garage and just take it out on nice summer days, Allantes will start to increase in value as they gain collector status. Find one serviced by Dealers to minimize any mechanical concerns. many cars oparating well with over 200K miles."
"I would challenge anyone to find a car that's more fun than a 1993 Northstar Allante. It has everything you could ask for for a two seat weekend cruiser. If you are into burning rubber and going around corners at 80 mph, go buy a vette as this is not the car for you. If you are looking for, comfort, style, power when you need it, a real trunk, and prestige for small dollars compared to new, then you simply cannot beat this car."
