This car sticks to the road like glue, handles like a dream. The PRV V-6 is a tad underpowered compared to todays sport cars BUT the overall driving experience is still one that gets to me even after all these year of owning one. My car has been totally reliable with only normal maintenance. I feel the power the DeLorean produces is quite adequate for my needs and I have never been in a situation where I wished the car had more. Parts are more available than most 20 year old cars that are no longer in production. Defective components have been identified LONG ago and our DeLorean vendors now offer upgraded technology on most faulty parts. The Delorean automobile has a HUGE loyal following that give the owner a remarkable database to search through for help. Don't buy a DeLorean if you have no money to maintain it. Other than that I think that a DeLorean is a great car for anyone with a passion for the unique and those that don't mind getting a lot of attention. My wife will not drive my car because of the attention it generates so, if you are a wallflower than this is not the car for you. My DeLorean was, at one time, my ONLY car, my daily driver so I feel that it is that reliable.
