problem #1

Oct 082001

Stratus 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,706 miles
I had my brakes replaced at 23000 miles and every 3 months since. They are only wearing on the driver's side the worst but wear on both sides. The dealer stated it was because they were metallic. The brakes are extremely noisy with squealing and grinding sounds. I have had them replaced and have spend over 3000 dollar since I have owned the car and I am the original owner. Also the left child lock is not working and therefore causes the door to only be opened from the outside. The handle when pulled from the inside has no resistance and this has been checked and everything is in tact. The problem has not been solved or fixed and I cannot afford the replacement part for the child lock.
