Despite its high-tech sports car status, the Dodge Daytona, being America's first turbocharged, front-drive sports car, had some initial design shortcomings. The most common problem faced is engine failure, which can have severe consequences. Daytona drivers report various warning signs such as strange engine noises, rough performance, stalling, misfiring, overheating, loss of power during acceleration, increased oil consumption, and the illumination of the Check Engine Light. Immediate inspection of the spark plug, air filter, oil filter, oil pump, engine mount, and drive belt is recommended. The second common issue is braking failure, a critical safety concern. With increasing mileage, louder braking noises, reduced brake performance, vibrating brake pedals, and scored marks on the rotors may be observed. It's crucial to keep the brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, and brake rotors in optimal condition. While routine maintenance is often overlooked, it's actually a key factor in extending the Daytona's lifespan. Regular checks and maintenance of parts like the windshield wiper, fog light, headlight, cabin air filter, seat belt, and antenna, which are crucial for safe and comfortable driving, are highly recommended.
