| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus|
| ||General comments:||I love the way the car looks and drives. I love the way you sit low to the ground, can open the aftermarket moonroof i had put in and drive like a bat outta hell with the 2.4L 4cyl. engine. It is too bad that the problems it has are so pricey. This car is FAST!!! Corners like no other in its class and it looks good with a body kit, wing, custom paint and dual exhaust. K&N air filer are good for horsepower, along with Split Fire 4's, reprogrammed computer, aftermarket starter, plugwires and high octane gas. Looks much better with 18" rims and low profile tires, eibach lowering springs help with cars handeling. Sound system thumps but rear deck speakers blow to easy with the dealership amp. Car is running great at 150000mi and should continue to do so for another 150000 if i only make a few minor upgrades. Im going to soon repaint the car and redo the tranny. After I have some more $ saved up im going to install a viper engine, tranny and engine $21,000! but will be awesome. :o)|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Engine blew a head gasket at 78000mi for no aparent reason. had to pay to have it replaced, cost was about 2,500. I have also replaced the exhaust at about 80,000mi, and the brakes a few times but not as much as everyone else seems to, done all recalls at no cost, cup holders, can be knocked into neutral very easily when driving, clear coat on doors and quarter panels is bubbling and peeling off, Chrysler will not cover this, so im going to have to pay for a new paint job soon, though it has never broke down other than the spun bearing and Car now has 150,000mi. Tranny still going strong but needing a new gasket between it and the engine. I might possibly try to change it to a clutchless manual shift transmission.|
