Gorgeous Fast Car, But Dodge Build Quality . . .

by
Feb 27, 2007 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Gorgeous "Look at Me" Styling, American Muscle Car Rumble, Future Collectibility, Stability at High Speed
Cons: Dodge Build Quality, Expensive Replacement Parts/Modifications/Maintenance, Poor Ergonomics
The Bottom Line: The car is a fantastic toy, but just a toy . . . won't coddle/comfort you, won't take you through rain/snow, but it is ultra fast/fun/sexy.

I purchased my 1999 Dodge Viper GTS (Red/Silver Stripes) in 2007 for two very silly reasons: 1) I had been dreaming about one since I was 12 years old in 1992 when the first versions were actually released for production, 2) I wanted a car that would be ... read more

The 1999 Viper GTS (A review by someone who has actually owned this car.)

by
Sep 4, 2001 - Updated Sep 16, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Sexy, Screamingly fast, Very exclusive, more reliable than you think
Cons: A/C not the best, no "gadgets", always have to answer endless questions
The Bottom Line: If you have another car as a daily driver and don't mind all the attention you get, this is a very fast and fun car to own.

Let me start with a little bit of my automobile history. I was the proud owner of a brand new solid black 1999 Dodge Viper GTS back in November of 1999. I kept the car for 14 months before I sold it. I had previously owned a 1997 Corvette. Before that, I ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Attention!, Performance, Handling, Bang for Buck
Cons: Attention!, Lack of ABS, Expensive

OK I own one of these cars, actually the ACR model. Basically this car has absolutely none of the features you would expect on a "modern" sports car like the Porche or Corvette. No ABS (this is a bad thing), no traction control, no active ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Speed Handling. The looks you get.
Cons: Not very comfy

Unfortunatley I can not afford a Viper without taking a ridiculously large loan from the bank which I dont intend to do any time soon. This is your definite pimp car if you ask me. You can take this car to the most elegant restraunts without a hitch. ... read more

Pros: Power, Looks, Price
Cons: Gas, Insurance

This is a great car, it combines beauty and power and so much more. Driving this car is like being re-born into Hulk Hogan's body. It's 450hp of true American beast. I love the looks of this car and it always turns heads around town. If ... read more

THe Dodge Viper... Ohh how sweet... The car boats a 8.0 liter V10 engine that pumps out 450 hp for a top speed of 199 mph. Trust me, its the top speed :) The car red lines at 6900 rpm, which is just right for me. The car rides so smooth because of ... read more

Pros: handling, high quality, high performance, performance wheels, power mirrors, and satin-finish aluminum interior trim
Cons: expensive, limited cargo room, poor gas mileage, and high insurance

The Dodge Viper is in a class all by itself. With its Michelin MXX3 performance tires, standard power mirrors and satin-finish aluminum interior trim it is a must have vehicle for anyone willing to part with over 76,000 dollars. The Dodge Viper comes in ... read more

I owned two Corvettes prior to purchasing a Viper GTS/ACR in September 1999. The Corvette is a superb sports car, but it does not come close to comparing to the Viper in terms of acceleration or handling. In fact, nothing on the low side of $150,000 ... read more

Pros: PERFORMANCE !!!!!!!

The Dodge Viper is an astounding feat of engineering prowess. It's all-aluminum V-10 engine is a marvel in itself. This red powerhouse delivers 455 horsepower and 490 ft/lbs of torque. That matched with 17 inch wheels all around allows the Viper to ... read more
