Traded in a 99 Breeze with 83,000 miles
for this Stratus 4 cylinder ES used with
19,000 on it.So far its been a Great
car. Some minor adjustments like noisy
wiper blades and excessive wind noise

It sounds to me like your transmission has failed. I have a 2003 Dodge Stratus SXT and I had to replace the transmission at 180,000 miles. Apparently these cars are notorious for their transmission is...
