1996 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan

Review

This vehicle is by far the worst that I've owned. From the undersized rotors that need to be replaced annually, to the leaky engine, this car never ceases to need service. The 4-cylinder engine is notorious for head gasket failures as I've had to have the dealer-replaced head gasket replaced yet again. Also, the oil galley plug, also originally replaced by the dealer, leaked again. I've also had to replace the rear motor mount since the oil ate away at the rubber parts. I also have to contend with yearly rotor and brake replacement. Not only was the car poor to begin with, but each of items replaced by the dealer failed again. This vehicle is terrible!

Favorite Features

Head room. Decent power.

Suggested Improvements

How about an engine that retains its various fluids for longer than a year? What dunderhead designed a car that needs to have its rotors and brakes replaced yearly? The folks at Dodge should hang their heads in shame over this real piece of junk.
