My head gasket blew around 45,000 miles.
Air conditioner went out twice- once prior to the warranty expiring and once after, with a oil leak in cooling system.
Transmission went out around 50,000.
Problems with wheel bearings (replaced).
There was a continuous leak from underneath the floor-boards behind the driver's seat and the front passenger seat. The carpet under the mats would be soaked after a rain or when traveling through a puddle.
Sensor in the engine went out.
Brakes and rotors replaced 3 times.
Interior electrical problems (i.e..radio, power locks, fuse box).
Driver seat jiggles.
I enjoy the size and style of the vehicle. I am a tall person, and have never felt cramped up.
I have never been left stranded or felt the car was about to quit on me.
However, I don't have any piece of mind that this vehicle is reliable. I have had so many problems with it from almost the time I drove it off the lot. Thankfully, I purchased an extended warranty when I bought the vehicle new, and it paid for itself on numerous occasions, because within the first 5 years I was constantly at the repair shop.
I am now in the 6th year, and am holding my breath, because my warranty has expired, and so far I have not had any serious problems. But I know it's only a matter of time...
I bought this vehicle because my father worked for Chrysler, and therefore I could get an exceptional deal. Next time, I will spend an extra buck and get a better car.
