2005 Dodge Stratus SXT FAILED at 80K mil
By Dodge Customer on

Vehicle

2005 Dodge Stratus SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

The timing belt failed at 80K on my 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT 2.4 liter which caused 2 engine valves to be bent and the first time my service manual said anything about the timing belt is to change it at 90K miles. It did not say anything about inspecting or anything else concerning the timing belt before then.So now I'm stuck with a $1650 engine repair when this could have been avoided if Dodge at least suggested inspection of the timing belt at 60K or 70K miles.Not happy!
