| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus |
| ||General comments:||While this is a great looking car, it is far from dependable. If you are interested in buying a Dodge Stratus, change your mind NOW or plan on buying a frequent maintenance plan with your local maintenance shop.|
At 34,500 miles, our head gasket blew. Now, at 104,000, our head gasket has blown again. The fuel pump left us stranded with a 2 year old last summer. The arm rod (cv or u-joint thing) needs to be replaced - costly. Our complete AC system had to be replaced last summer - $2000. The rear wheel assembly needs to be replaced. The dealer informed ne yesterday that to fix everything that is wrong with it would cost about $2500. I owe about that on it and they say it is only worth about $2500. This car is a piece of junk.
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Too costly to keep up. The car looses its value rapidly. We owe more that what the car is worth. It seems that something is always going wrong with it. Dodge really needs to do something about the head gasket problem. My uncle has bought 3 Stratus' and all three blew head gaskets and one had to have its transmission replaced. I will NEVER buy a Dodge product again.|
| ||Previous car:||1988 Nissan Sentra - great car - I sold it to buy the Stratus at 147,000( I never had to do anything to it except brakes and tires) - wish I still had it.
