1998 Dodge Stratus 2.4L from North America
The driver's seat bolts do not hold the seat in position.
The 2 front doors do not open and close properly.
It leaks oil and engine coolant - needs new head gasket.
The lights did not work properly and I had to take this car back 4 times to the Dodge dealer before they could figure out what was wrong with them.
We bought this car for my son who is a new driver because it was listed as a safe vehicle in Consumer Reports. I will never buy a Dodge vehicle again due to substandard service and this being a very poorly made automotive product.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I'm sure you got a good deal on this car, but if you bought it to be a safe car for your son that's a new driver, you're wrong, the Stratus is rated poorly. If you wanted something safe for your son, get a Ford Taurus; trust me, they're rated good, and it saved a relative's life. Check out http://www.iihs.org/.
