| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus|
| ||General comments:||Typical Chrysler product: If you regularly maintain (!), and baby (!) the car it will last. You drive the doors off it, and it's gonna see the inside of a shop more than the road. Being an soon to be ex-Chrysler employee-I have heard a zillion complaints about Chrysler over the years, and yes, to be honest most of their complaints are justified. The major problem with Chrysler is the fact that they have introduced far too many model changes over the years, and logistically they cannot keep pace-and so, the quality of the parts, service and reliability have suffered. The designers at Ford and GM and the Imports are now poised to regain their marketshare from disgruntled former Chrysler customers. It's a hard lesson for them to learn, but in the long run their quality will improve to woo back customers.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Poor paint quality, and yes the 604 41TE transmission is weak due to the fact the friction modifier additive in the transmission wears out over time. Proper transmission oil changes are a must!|
| ||Previous car:||None|
