Reliability has been great by A happy Dad in Louisiana on 06/02/2004. Trim: 1998 Plymouth Breeze, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Good solid ride for a small car. Back seat folds down so you can carry long stuff. This car now has 105k on it and has been very reliable. The head gasket has been a problem on many. This car went 100k with NO repair trouble other than maint items. The head gasket cost only $600. Not bad for 100k of super reliable - always starts - never stopped on us service.
Cons: The 2.0 liter 4 cyl is lacking in power. The 2.4 liter has much better acceleration. I wouldn't get the 2.0 liter in hill country. Its only OK in the flat land were we live. The original head gasket is a problem, but the replacement is different and solves the problem for good so it is not an ongoing, repeating thing. Also get a good battery - it's not easy to change.
Overall review: I got this for my daughter in 2000. She has been on several long trips with it. I don't worry about her getting broken down on the road side. Feels solid on the freeway, fun to drive and reliable as any foriegn car. It was great buy.
