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


When I bought this car, I would have
said it was a 10. It had looks, smooth
ride, low noise, roomy interior, and
power. About 8 months and only 5,000
miles later, it developed a vibration
and growling noise. After five visits
to the dealer (who really didn't want
to work on it) and a letter to Chrysler
(who said if I didn't like the dealer,
take it somewhere else), the possible
cause was the transmission. With some
research I found out that this
troublesome transmission was the same
one used in prior years only to be
renamed. Would I buy this car again
even though it has looks, comfort,
power, etc..? NO! Maybe I just got
the lemon of the bunch.
