1988 Plymouth Reliant LE
Engine: 2.5 inline four. Transmission: 3-speed automatic.
I owned this car back in 2007. I was working on the Arrow, so I needed another car. I ended up finding this car for sale just down the street I lived on. I got it for five hundred bucks. It was a lot better than most of the other vehicles I was finding around the same price range, which mostly consisted of rusty Geo Metros.
I actualy liked the car(I dodn't get the reputation many people have given these old K cars). I did have a problem with a sensor, but that was a very easy fix. I bought a new sensor for $25, took the distributor cap off, unpluged and lifted out old sensor, pluged in and placed new sensor, and put distributor cap back on. No more problems!
I wasn't much for the auto transmition, but it was good for around the city.
When we moved, I had to choose between the Reliant or the Arrow(couldn't take both). I chose to keep the Arrow and gave the Reliant to my Aunt(she helped us move and was needing a car). She had a cooling system problem(though it still ran fine in spite of this?) and sold it to a friend. He fixed it up and then resold it. He told me it was still running like a top! Infact, I still see it driving around.
