"This was my first car, I got it from my grandmother. It is a good little thing I love the gas mileage! But as they age some problems surface, the radio quit about 10,000 miles ago, the AC has quit a few times but was easy and CHEAP to fix. It has been reliable, but because I do a lot of highway driving it is beginning to show its age, all in all it has been a good little car over the years!"
Pros: "handles great, great price, great gas mileage,"
Cons: "no cup holders"

"Bought this car for $5k in 2000. Been driving it ever since.
All of the standard issues happened around 100k mark. New steering pump, new radiator pump, new brakes. Transmission rebuilt around 150k, as well as a catalytic converter replaced. Small electrical issues here and there with connectors rusting up, requiring cleaning. All 4 speakers had to be replaced one by one. Leaks about 1L of oil between scheduled changes (out of 4.5L total 10w30), which is nothing for an American car over 20 years old.
Very roomy. Easy to get out of passenger side if parked too close to obstacles. Lots of cargo space.
The only part that has developed rust is the exhaust pipe. The rest of the body is completely rust free. Good quality metal. 1.6 tons of it ensure SUV-like gas consumption, which is the main negative.
The weight results in a lot of momentum. It's a sedan that drives (and brakes) like a tank. ABS will be kicking in quite often if you're not gentle with the pedal.
Will own it for as long as it serves me. Will hate to see it go."
"Bought this car at a car auction for $500.00,best money spent,same engine and transmission!!!!One head gasket,2 sets of tires,complete brake service,and fuel pump,but hey what more can you ask for?Paint still great,.213,000 miles and still rollin."
"i love The plymouth acclaim 1992 i own one its a good little car, a 4 cylinder good gas mileage quality. the only thing i dont like about the car is the windows are not power and the locks. its a good car that runs good and very dependable for high gases situation for those who are low on budgets."
