Summary:

Do not buy this car!

Faults:

This car has spent more time in the repair shop than it has in my carport.

Newest major problem is the transmission.

General Comments:

Buying this car is the worst mistake I have ever made. I'm a single mom of two and now the car sits in my carport collecting dust because I can't afford to fix it.

I wish I had found this website before I bought it.

The dealership is terrible for not fixing things and the help line for this company certainly offered no help whatsoever. I was told there were no major problems with the transmissions in these cars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Dear All.

Since the 30th of dec. 2003 I own a Chrysler Stratus 2.5 V6 24V LX from 1995. It is now the 6th of Feb. 2004 and in total I drove 4 days with it. Al other times it was in the shop.

The problem was the transmission. Sometimes when I was driving at 50 Mph it by it self shifted back to the first gear resulting in a lot of RPM's because of the 50 mph.

Today I will get my car and the shop repaired it in guarantee.

All other features of this car are great. I love it, but I hope never to have this problem again.

Success to all other owners.

Take care, Dennis from Belgium.

Summary:

Don't wash your car, it might break down

Faults:

The transmission went out at 93,000.

Power steering pump is leaking at 95,200.

Check engine light goes on and off a lot.

General Comments:

This is a very nice car, it drives very well.

I would recommend this car, except it has lots of minor problems.

There is lots of head room and lots of leg room.

The interior is very nice and comfortable.

Also there is lots of trunk space and lots of room in the back for more people.

Runs very good and starts good in the winter, but it's light so it doesn't go through snow too well.

Otherwise I am very happy with my car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
