| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus|
| ||General comments:||The 97 and prior Stratus has had problem with a defective head gasket failing well before expected which has caused catastropic engine failures. D|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Head gasket failure due to faulty design in 95-97 modle year. (Corrected in 98s on)Causes oil leak and overheat problems. Rides too low. You MUST GO SLOWLY UP ANY DRIVEWAY CURB. I took one a little too fast and cracked the exhaust manifold. Very noisey at highway speed. Front cup holders as mentioned in above reviews. I always catch my pant cuff on that silly lever that adjusts driverseat height on the left side of the seat, when I try to exit the car-very frustrating! Poor gas mileage. Had a computer problem causing stalling, the first 10K. I think this was just a freak thing-haven't heard of this elswhere.|
