| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus|
| ||General comments:||I bought this car cause I was looking for a cheap mid sized vehicle. What I got surpassed my expectations and has been above and beyond reliablity. I mantain my cars very well. First off I only had one problem, A common problem in a stratus is the head gasket, that needed to be replaced with the new and improved head gasket at 45,000 miles. Because I have done my regular maintnace such as oil changes, raditor flushes, transmission oil changes, tune-up, and etc.. as the manufacture suggests I have had absolutly no other problems. 5 years and only $650 spent in repairs (not counting normal maintance) is very good. I have enjoyed this car very much and Now just bought a 2002 Dodge stratus. When reading some of the reviews please keep in mind some of these reviews are bad for instance one guy says his head gasket went and refused to fix it because of the cost and wonders why his Stratus is junk. This car is extremely reliable if maintained as suggested by the manufacture.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||original head gasket tends to go around 50,000 miles, But replaced with a new and Improved one that should last a long time. I wish there were a little more plastic on the body.|
| ||Previous car:||Grand Am, Grand prix, and Malibu|
