1998 Dodge Stratus 2.2 Liter from North America
This car is OK until 150,000 Miles
Head gasket went at 90,000 miles - fixed by warranty.
Front brakes went bad at 105,000.
Power break Master Cylinder went at 110,000.
Timing belt broke at 155,000.
Rear drum brake rubber seals went bad and cylinder ruptured at about 156,000.
Both front bearings went bad at around 157,000.
Fuel Pump failed at 160,000.
Maybe I forgot one or two more things after 150,000.
Last Year this car cost me 1700$ to fix between 150,000 and 160,000 miles. And I did the brakes myself. So that is bad.
It is spacious, the engine goes up to 120 mph max speed, not too many problems until the 150's. It went 15000 miles without an oil change back at 90,000 miles and the engine seems fine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
