| ||General comments:||Since my last review (approx. 6 months) I've had to replace my brake pads and rotors at 30,000 miles. I don't have a problem with this. The problem I have is that the Stratus has special brake pads that only Dodge can replace ($250 for the pads only). These pads are so hard that every time you have to replace the pads, you also have to replace the rotors because they are so worn down. The dealership failed to mention this. Also, the other day I started my car and it took forever to turn over. Once it did, the engine started bucking when RPM's reached 2,000. Anyway, they replaced the cam sensor (whatever that is) and it's working fine now, but I will be so glad to get rid of this car. Hopefully I'll be rid of it in a few weeks. I hate to say it but I'm going Japanese with a Nissan Pathfinder.|
