1998 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan


I bought a '98 Stratus ES for $6,000 in 2002 @ 79K miles. I drive about 18K miles/year. In 2003 I spent about $1,000 for fixing tie rods and stabilizer links and brakes and rotors. In the summer of 2004, I spent $3600 for fixing valves of three cylinders and changing the head gasket, distributor, timing belt, rotor, water pump etc etc etc..Now it is January of 2005 and the car's engine shakes and check engine light is on. The delearship thinks it is either two of the fuel injectors or valves again. Either way it will cost about $1,500. I am completely broke and frustrated, and in credit card debt.

Best Features

Exterior. It looks nice and I was fooled by the good looks.

Worst Features

Engine. I heard Chrysler and Dodge cars have Mitsubishi engines inside and often it causes problem for some reason.
