Pros: "Fantastic gas mileage, tough engine, low price"

Cons: "Old sensors, unreliable overdrive"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought it at 19 for $500, it had 135,017 miles on it. I had no money at the time and couldn't afford to fix any of the problems it had, I drove it on 3 cylinders for 6 months until I could finally afford to do repairs. Once that was solved (needed a tune up) the car ran great and averaged 33 MPG (2.0L SOHC engine, same as the one used in the Dodge Neon) I did have issues with old sensors needing to be replaced, the overdrive didn't work (still shifted fine on gears 1-4) and the car would need a quart of oil every month, but I could easily count on it to make the 50 mile round trip to work everyday for 3 years. Over that 3 years, I put $3,000 in new parts and service to make it work, and I drove the car 36,500 miles before I finally retired the car (engine was still running). So that translates to ownership costs (not counting oil, tires, battery or coolant which every car goes through) of less than $1 for every 10 miles of driving. Very reliable, in fact, I wish I could find another one."

"Think it still has alot of miles left in it. Definitely would need tires and alignment with a good tune up and you would have a nice little car. Interior only needs a good detailing and would look almost new inside."

"I purchased my '97 Plymouth Breeze from a private dealer 4 years ago and the car has been very reliable, reasonable to fix, and comfortable to drive. It is coming time for me to move on from this car, but I am very pleased with my decision to purchase this car and would again if I had to do it over again."

Cons: "Gas Mileage, Trunk Space, Ergonomics"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I've had the one Im reviewing for 1 year and besides normal maintenance and repairs, it's been a great car. The car has been dependable and gets my family anywhere. I've had three of them and they've all done well. I even sold one to a family member who still drives it today. Handling is secure. The ride can be jittery. Gas mileage is so-so. Power is sufficient as long as you don't get the base 2.0L engine with the automatic. You can usually pick up a low mileage model fairly cheap. It reminds me of my 1990 Accord I had before. Spirited performance, reliable, cheap to repair (for the D.I.Y.), and large interior.I would recommend this car to people who need a nice daily driver or for a teenager learning how to drive."
