Bought car new in 2002. Now has 365,000km on a
never serviced engine except regular oil changes and one set of platinum spark plugs. But, the engine fault light kept coming on. Noticed that it
did so after a rain or during damp weather. Argued with the dealer who replaced all sensors,
on-board computer, new wiring harness after telling me not to tell him how to do his job. Took Chrysler to court, won the suit, got all my money
back that wasn't covered under the warranty and
took car to independent mechanic who replaced the gasket between the gas tank and the car body and have had no problems since then. He said he had done so with many Dodge/Chryslers.
Lots of trunk room - comfortable seats - good vision - handles very well with low center of gravity.
Satisfactory gas consumption given the
amount of mileage on motor.
If everything else
on the car was as good and as reliable as the
motor, the vehicle would last for another 350k
Do not like chrome wheels - forever topping up
air pressure. Better quality upper/lower ball
joints would be a significant improvement.
