| ||Model of the car:||Stratus|
| ||General comments:||I'm happy with my car. If I would have had to pay for that new engine, I guarantee I'd had it and be cussing up a storm. So, it's for you to decide if it's really the car I like or the warranty. It is almost guaranteed that the head gasket will need to be replaced and you will have to take that into consideration. I would not have bought the car without the warranty because at the time I knew that Stratus had the rep for bad head gaskets. I only knew of the problem because of great web sites like these!|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Of course the head gasket. Replaced at 60,000 miles. Good thing I bought an extended warranty. The head gasket, head, and block were all damaged because of the faulty gasket. The warranty covered over 3500.00 all I paid was 100.00 deductable. So I am not so scarred over the experience, I pretty much got a new motor for free! Cup holders can sometimes be inconvienent, but at least there are two.|
