This is a low quality, cheaply manufactured lemon
Shaky and loud clanking engine idle.
Electrical problems from day 2.
My parents came home with this car for me right before I moved to CA. They were afraid that my older Ford Escort wouldn't make the 2k trip.
After having it for 2 days, the radio completely died. It now blinks on and off, but doesn't function at all.
After the first couple of weeks I would have to boost the car every morning before work, because the battery was dead. I took it to the Dodge dealership, who had it for a week, and they said they had no idea what was the problem. They even went so far to say that "it appears to have fixed itself." Wrong.
I have had continuous problems with this car including:
- Loud engine.
- Rough idle, to the point of having to shift into neutral at stop lights.
- Loud clanking engine sounds when I first start it up.
- It's occasionally dead when I try to start it, even though I've had the battery replaced. I now carry a battery pack booster.
- Not so good mpg. Perhaps 25 mpg.
I should have kept my old car. Never had any problems with it. But I do know that my next car (I'll be trading very soon) is not going to be an American one!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
