Regular Car Reviews: 1980 Dodge Aspen
“Aspen and Volaré were introduced in 1975, but they should have been
delayed a full six months. The company was hungry for cash, and this time
Chrysler didn't honor the normal cycle of designing, testing, and building
an automobile. The customers who bought Aspens and Volarés in 1975 were
actually acting as Chrysler's development engineers. When these cars first
came out, they were still in the development phase.
“Looking back over the past twenty years or so, I can't think of any
cars that cased more disappointment among customers than the Aspen and the
Volaré. … But the Aspen and the Volaré simply weren't well-made. The
engines would stall when you stepped on the gas. The brakes would fail. The
hoods would fly open. Customers complained, and more than three and a half
million cars were brought back to the dealers for free repairs – free to
the customer, that is. Chrysler had to foot the bill.” ---Lee Iacocca,
