| ||Model of the car:||SE Stratus|
| ||General comments:||this car has given me total grief since day one! at only 15,000 miles, i needed a new steering column. at 20,000 miles i needed a new steering fluid holder thing. still, every two weeks i must put a new bottle of steering fluid in or i sound like i am scraping metal to metal every time i turn the freaking wheel. it has a very rough idle and sounds like a stupid diesel when it's in park! sure, it looks great and sporty, but looks aren't everything when you are spending this much money. to add to my grief, the brake light bulbs constantly blow out. this is the loudest and junkiest piece of SH*T i have every driven in my life! you could floor the gas pedal and only creep across the road. the paint is already fading away and no longer has a glossy shine. the seats don't hold up well to pressure, the fabric is already tearing apart. the dash scratches too easily. i wiped down my car with armor all and to my surprise, some of the god foresaken dash rubbed away! the dodge finance people hassle me every other day if i am even one week late on a payment. i can not wait to trade it in on another car. this car is nothing but trouble and the stratus line needs to be put to rest in car heaven (or maybe hell, for the trouble it put me through). sometimes, i have fantasies of driving it into a tree and putting it out of it's misery!|
