What a piece of absolute garbage!!!
By Jessi on


2005 Dodge Stratus SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Well, my husband already had the car when we got married in 09-06.It was under factory until 36,000 Miles. At about 38,000 Miles, the crank seal went out because of play in the crank. It was $400 to fix the seal, and $2000 if we wanted to fix the crank. Since we didn't fix the crank, the seal went out like 2 days later and we have to put like 5 quarts of oil in it a week because it just pours out. Also, around the same time, the transmission has begun to jerk when it's put into gear. We took good care of the car (oil changes, scheduled maintenance, etc.) and it is still falling apart at 38,000 Miles. It's such a freaking piece of crap. We're stuck with it though because we still owe $10, 000 on it.

It's pretty to look at.

Fix the trash powertrain.
