| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus |
| ||General comments:||The car is sleek, roomy, and a treat with routine maintenance FOR 15,000 MILES!! The car encountered transmission problems at 18,000 miles. It's on its third fuel filter at 36,000 miles (3 years of driving for pleasure, rare daily uses commuting), it requires great effort to start from cold (excessive cold crank time). Most of these problems stem from high sensitivity to fuel mixture and various malfunction fuel system components. A decent lease car, but not one to keep past the warranty.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Excessive repair time and some money (thank the extended warranty) for fuel system repairs like filter(s) and a fuel pump. Excessive cold cranking problems began at 36,000 mi, requiring aformention fuel system adjustments and replacement of the crank sensor.|
| ||Previous car:||Ford Contour - way too small and engine is severly underpowered. Pontiac Grand Am|
