1st new car, worst car I ever owned
By sharky65 on


2003 Dodge Stratus SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


This car was built cheaply. Here is all the things that have gone wrong with it in the 8 years and 89,000 miles.
year 2 new brakes and rotors
year 3 drivers side window came off the track $300
year 4 new brakes and rotors, gas gauge stopped working causing $300 bill to replace gas pump, heater fan will only work on high
year 5 engine blew up, I had oil change every 3 months, it was under warranty
year 6 new brakes and rotors, all windows rattle inside doors
year 7 transmission had to be rebuilt
year 8 rear strut mounts totally disintergrated because they were made out of cheap aluminum, new brakes and rotors

I can finally get rid of it this year. My wife and I alternate buying cars.

Mopar really went cheap with this car. Maybe they should get out of the car making business.
