1995 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan

Review

This was the first year for the Chrysler made 2.4L engine and the head gaskets had to be replaced every 20 - 30K miles. Don't check the oil and you lose the engine. Head gaskets were scarce in '99 and my engine burned out at 90K miles and had to be replaced with a used one which was almost impossible to find. It took over a month to find a good replacement engine. It just had it's second head gasket replaced approx. 50K mi. The dealer didn't even question the request; in and out in 8 hrs. and $800; thank you very much!

Favorite Features

Like the cab forward design.

Suggested Improvements

Better engine head gasket seal design. If this was corrected later I don't know about it.
