1997 Plymouth Breeze 2.0 from North America
The worst experience of my life!
Had a blown head gasket @ 26000 miles, again @ 40000 miles and once again @ 63000 miles. Replaced each time by a Chrysler dealership. The third and last time, the dealer replaced, they opted not to replace the "O" rings, so within 45 days of getting the car back, I had oil running through my radiator and filled in my plugs to the top. Therefore, my piece of junk had to go back for new "O" rings at my cost of $500 plus.
How about not having a working horn since about 20000 miles or so?
Front tie-rod ends a problem?? Yes!!!
I took the car to a mechanic because my air-conditioning wasn't working, he said he had never seen a air-conditioning compressor unit "fall-apart" like mine did.
I will never again in my natural life, or any life here after, purchase, rent or ride casually in a Chrysler-Dodge-Plymouth built vehicle (oh, I mean death-trap).
I will never recommend to my worst enemy to purchase Chrysler-Dodge-Plymouth.
I am purchasing a new car next week, made by a real car maker!!!
Chrysler-Dodge-Plymouth can kiss my.. goodbye!!!.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I had a Breeze with the exact same head gasket/engine oil-coolant mixing problem. After replacing the engine @60k miles out of my own pocket, the whole incident occurred again @ around 75k miles. I didn't bother fixing a thing, I just prayed the dealership wouldn't notice when I used it as a trade in for a new car. (they didn't notice!) A mechanic told me that this motor had design flaws which made this problem quite frequent.
