Love the car, and it will love you back
The only things I found on this car, was the alternator. When I replaced it, nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing went wrong.
This car drove me anywhere, it was good, economic, and very reliable. It just depends how well you take care of it like ALL other vehicles. Before I bought it, I wanted a Honda, Nissan, or any other good Japanese make.
The reason I had to do away with my Stratus was because this stupid lady wrecked it in her big mumbo jumbo truck. This car would have lasted even more, it was at 255 miles with no problems, not to mention it had a previous owner before me. I did also get the steering hose replaced, it does have that recall, but other than that, well worth it.
Further to be honest, I went car hunting and I saw American made, as Japanese, there was some really really crapped up Nissans, and Hondas, Why? Because the stupid owners failed to take care of them, but yet, are good to blame the makers of the vehicle quick, when many of the reasons are they drive and drive and then ask why it breaks down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
