2002 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


This car is the least reliable of any I have owned. At less than 40,000 miles a rear wheel bearing had to be replaced. At 69500 miles the transmission suddenly failed with no prior warning, leaving me and my family stranded 300 miles from home. I had to leave the car at a dealership 300 miles from home for two weeks to get it repaired. The Chrysler dealership- rebuilt tranny failed within one mile of leaving the dealership. Now the check engine light comes on once every couple of weeks, each time for a different problem. Responses to my complaints to Daimler-Chrysler indicate that they are unconcerned.

Best Features

Fuel economy, if trips to the service department are discounted.

Worst Features

A reliable transmission and drive train is required. Customer satisfaction is not a priority with Daimler-Chrysler. Follow their advice, find a better car and buy it. It won't be hard to do.
