I would never buy a Dodge again!

2005 Dodge Stratus SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
When I purchased this car in Dec 2005 and it still had miles left on the original warranty, I was happy. But I wasn't thinking that I needed to get it in for servce right away and within a few months I had to replace the transmission. Now the Shock Mounts/struts holding the rear shocks in place have broken and I need to replace them. I have so many problems with this car ever since I bought it - and the dealership I took it to for service just expects me to accept the broken mounts due to "salt and corrosion" as normal -even though the car is only about 5 years from the manufacture date- That I should have no problem with having to pay $550.00 for this repair. I'll never buy a Dodge again!!!
Transmissions that don't fail from early on - and more reliable suspension. Would appreciate a car that doesn't cost a fortune and ALSO doesn't have expected major repair and maintenance costs
