| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus SE|
| ||General comments:||Like I said, I must have a bad one. I can't bring myself to complain about the cup holders because it is such minor issue compared to everything else, if that was my biggest worry, I would be a happy person. Going to try and sell it and buy a used Celica maybe or something else more reliable. (Funny, the reason we bought a new car is because we didn't want to have to worry about reliability!)|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Here we go.... Front end issues. I have had the car in the shop more than 6 times in the past 37000 miles or 1 year and 8 months. Front end problems, everything from steering linkage to struts, to it mysteriously loosing all of its powersteering fluid (at 34000). I have just reached the 37000 mile point, yes just outside the bumper-to-bumper warranty and it is falling apart again. The brake rotors have warped and the auto-lock @ 15 mph has quit. I hate to say it, because I really like what Dodge is doing with cars as far as aesthetics. But this car has been the biggest peice of junk for me. I have read the other posts and others don't seem to be having the problems I am. I am happy for them. I am in the process of trying to get rid of this car right now, before it starts getting REALLY expensive.|
