Stratus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,582 miles
Have had this 2000 Dodge Stratus which daughter has driven for 5 years now it is on it's fourth transmission since purchasing and numerous other repairs, all soft plugs replaced, originals were made from pot metal, replaced with brass. Numerous alignment problems. But just last month daughter was driving and noticed a severe scrapping noise all of a sudden, she thought it might be brakes wearing out. Upon inspection it was the lower control arm rubbing against the inside of the front passenger side wheel. Lower ball joint had given away and the entire control arm was now resting inside of the wheel. 2000 & 2001 Dodge Stratus unsafe at any speed.
