my stepbrother has owned a 98 for about a year and is constantly bringing it to me asking me to fix this and that, the things rides like a hotwheels on concrete, you can feel every bump in the road,
and when you hit the throttle first of all, it feels like your going no where and second the pathetic, noisy 4 cyl can wake the dead! I hate dodge! Ford all the way!

I bought this 15 year old car for $1500. It had 180K on it but still runs smoothly. It handles great and should last anyone a long time so long as they keep up the maintenance and do repairs as needed. Before when I thought of the brand "Dodge", the first thing that came to mind was gas guzzling trucks. To my surprise this car gets pretty good gas mileage. I've had it over a month now and I love it. My goal is to get it to last me through this winter with out having any major problems.

I bought my car in 2006 with 80k on it.
Needed to immediately replace water pump and deal with leaking oil pan.
It is now 2013, so it's been a fairly okay car for me to get it over 150,000 miles.
I need to 'junk' the car now, because it's no good.
I live in PA and the bottom of the car is completely rusted out, rocker panels are covered up with rivits and tin.
I've tried to frequently wash the car to avoid this, but it was inevitable. My frame is 'soft' and won't pass another inspection.
I would have liked to of got more than 150k out of the car, but it's not going to happen.
