1997 Dodge Stratus LE from North America
Dear Dodge, thanks for making a piece of crap
I had to replace the radiator at 72000.
I have had to replace the same wheel cylinder four times.
Anything that could go wrong with the brakes has gone wrong with the brakes, and I have bought more brakes than any one person should.
The heater stopped working around 75000.
The ball joints went bad around 78000.
I could try to list everything that's gone wrong with this car, but this car has nickel and dimed me more than I expected.
Save yourself a lot of time, money, and frustration and don't buy a Dodge Status.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

All I can say is that you should stay clear of Chrysler/Dodge products since this manufacturer has systematic quality issues. They make some pretty good SUVs/pick-ups that have a heavy duty design and will last long. Besides that, Chrysler hasn't produced a decent car for decades. They don't seem to have the determination, money or technology to produce cars that last as long as the competition. I've been offered second hand Dodge vehicles for rock bottom trade in prices, and still I've declined. All I can say, they are all bad and you should stay away from second hand Chrysler/Dodges even at rock bottom prices.
