    The Red Green Show used to be the highlight of my Saturday night if that gives you any indication of my social life. As everyone says, they were what they were and they did what they did — not the least of which was saving Chrysler Corporation for the time being. That car was a real blast to drive, especially in winter as it would run rings around most other cars because they were RWD. Although the K-platform had been designed during , the failing company could not afford by this point to put them into production.

    Gas Mileage of Plymouth Reliant

    This car was unstoppable in the snow I only got the car stuck once by driving into a snow drift in my backyard. The sending unit did not work after this for some reason, but we got it going again. I eventually tore the CV joint out of it and it had to go to the junkyard or else I would probably still have it to drive around in. The Reliant is a cheap, solid, reliable car. It averages 26mpg city and 32mpg highway.

    It has the comfort of a larger car, and the price of an economy car. Maintenance is cheap and parts are reasonable and plentiful. The engine is a tad doggish from a stop, but gives good acceleration and reasonable power for a 4 cylinder.

    Transmission shifts smoothly, but winds up quick and only has 3 gears. Interior is very spacious, with front bucket seats, center console, and a large rear bench, it seats 5 comfortably. Recliners on the front seats and good padding make for a comfortable ride.

    Extra options are nice touches such as cruise, tilt steering, and air conditioning. Lack of power windows or even availability is a down point, but is livable. So far nothing has gone wrong with this car.

    There's a slight noise while turning right, but that may be a later problem. So far, so good. Though the accceleration leaves something to be desired, it does make it's way to top speed without embarrassment.

    This car is seriously not quick and seriously does handle like its on a rail, due to the weight reduction. Plexiglass side and back windows, no back seat, light weight trunk, lightened support beams in truck and rear quarters , and last, but not least 15" aluminum wheels. Boat trick at least 7 times. This is where you see how far you can drive your car down a boat landing before it stalls out, do not try this at home.

    During this 3 month period of hell, I drove the car daily to work and back, with out one malfunction. It sounds like you ruined a pretty good car there. But, at least you acknowledge your actions led to its demise, unlike so many reviews here where people beat the heck out of their cars and then malign them when they naturally succumb to the abuse.

    I really miss simple, inexpensive and well built cars like this. Now even the least expensive cars are a second mortgage and they self destruct after , miles. Nope, not the Iron Duke in this car. The Iron Duke was an iron head, iron block hence the nickname 2. The Reliant's engine was an iron block, aluminum head 2. Had to replace the brakes, drive shaft, and water pump. That's it, and I drive this car pretty hard sometimes! This car is so very under-rated!

    People used to scoff at me for driving a K car, once I let them drive it: The bench seat is very comfortable, especially for long drives. She corners on a dime, and had a nice accelerating sound. One Unstoppable Vehicle Faults: Power steering pump blew my fault , exhaust fell off again my fault.
