problem #1

Sep 072005

Stratus 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 137,000 miles
Where the hood fastened there was a lever in the outer skin of the hood where it was not molded properly. They did not have enough metal to mold it properly. The paint rusted through where it could cause the latch to come undone and the hood file up. Noticed this on all 2000 models, and on consumer's vehicle on September 7, 2005.
