Dodge used cars like the Viper was introduced to the North American public back in 1989. The Chrysler Motor Corporation unveiled the pro-type at the Detroit Motor show with such huge success, that the company decide to go ahead with the brand. The first Dodge Viper came on the scene of American streets in 1991 and has been a fixture on the roads ever since. I decided to research Dodge Vipers that were from 1991 to the early 2000s. This actually is one of my most favourite sports cars because of the mean looking design and the power it posses.
Dodge Viper used cars:
If there is any weakness to the Viper it has to be its interior design, its very plain. The leather seats and steering wheel look great and when you sit in one, you know this car can move. My issues are with the engine instruments and the center console, it lacks in sports car design. Its not like a Corvette at night time, where you feel youre in a fighter jet all lit up. The Viper from these years comes standard with AM/FM stereo, Air/Heating, and CD player depending on year.

I could only find two fuel economy statistics for the Dodge Viper. The first one goes back to 1994 and had a fuel rating of, 17.6-litre, per 100km, for city driving and 9.7-litre, per 100km, for highway driving. The second fuel statistic comes from the year 2002 and this had a fuel rating of, 20.9-litre, per 100km for city driving and 10.5-litre, per 100km, for highway driving. So after looking at these fuel ratings youre not exactly driving a hybrid, so expect to pay a lot at the gas pump.
The Vipers engine sizes vary depending on the year. The first version in 1991 had a V10, V8, 400 horsepower engine, with 450 pounds, per feet, of torque. Then in 1996 they increased the horsepower to 420, with 480 pounds, per feet, of torque. In 1997 it increased the engine up to 30 horsepower, giving it 450 and had 490 pounds, per feet, of torque.
Lets talk about the pros and cons of buying a used Dodge Viper:
1-There are issues with the clutch wearing down to easy.
2-There are problems with resting your hand on the six-speed shifter, it tends to screw up the transmission and leads to problems staying in gear.
3-There are no crash test results from two leading automotive organization who handle these tests.
Even though Dodge used cars like the Viper are expensive, if you have the money and you want a fast, mean sports car, the Viper is for you.
