Stratus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
Air conditioner blower fan switch only works on high speed, air conditioner does not cool when this has happened. Has been replaced 3 times and the problem continues--this creates a problem in the summer since I live in Texas and the summers are very hot down here. Also drivers side door panel has jammed sever times when it is opened, plastic clips holding door were coming off, this causes the door to jam on several occasions.

Driver's door jammed when it is opened, would open approx. 1 inch. Door panel was coming loose. Plastic clips holding panel were coming off. Panel would shift, and cause jamming problem. Would need to kick from inside to open door. Had taken vehicle to dealership, and was informed not a safety issue.
