Transmission cooling problem around
60000 miles, most of the a/c has been
replaced (half in extended warranty),
a/c still doesn't work. lots of brake
replacements, lots of headlight
replacements. Think Dodge supplement
their income with selling necc. parts.
Funny rattle in steering took a while
Currently at 125,000. Suprised I had
to replace rear engine mount and outer
tie-rod ends. But car is still going
strong. I've had it since 1998 (&
50000 miles), with really no major
problems since then, plenty of minor.
Definately had to be a home-mechanic
with this car. Selling garage had to
put new shocks on at 50000 miles.
Like everone said, great car to drive,
real personality to it. Great car to
maintain if you enjoy lying on your
back under the engine every couple of
a/c, transmission, just quality of the
parts used. Doesn't touch any Japanese
car for reliability. I heard the new
Dodge's were a lot better, but I'm
going to need some convincing.
