Up in smoke
By vanishpoint on
1997 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan
Bought new in 1996 and we loved driving
it. Great interior. Liked everything
about it. Then the problems started.
Water pump & head gasket (at only 50,000
miles!). Yesterday the fiancee and I
met with the florist for wedding
flowers; someone asked if that was our
silver car with the steam coming out.
Yep. Except it was smoke. Two firetrucks
later and a completely burned out front
end, we're waiting on the insurance.
Still, it looks great from behind and
the interior remains beautiful -- at
least the firewall works.
The interior. VERY comfortable seats
with nice adjustment range. Sweet trunk
space. Nice feel on the road.
Add fire extinguisher as standard
equipment. Seriously, though, fix
everything under the hood.
