Bought new approximately 2.5 years ago. Just hit 50k miles. Bought because it was a better value than it's competition (sonata, altima) at the time. Final year before the 2001 redesign and Dodge was offering free upgrades like the power package (power seat, windows, mirrors, etc.) and a free engine upgrade from the 2.0 to the 2.4 liter 4cyl.
Had a couple power window motors and a computer module for the tranny go out, but under warranty so no prob.
