problem #2

Nov 082008

Stratus R/T 2.7L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,149 miles

My right front end was making a whole lot of noise. I took it to Firestone and they said it was the upper and lower ball joint. I fixed it for like $700 and now, just this past winter it started back up again. Now they are busted once again but this time I am fixing it myself. I can't afford $700 every year to fix that crap. I wish I never bought this car, which has no warranty at all!

problem #1

Sep 102007

(reported on)

Stratus SXT 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,433 miles

Broken lower ball joints on both sides is unheardable. 1 broken lower ball joint is rare. No one can figure out how I have this problem and dodge is playint dumb. They had better fix it. I'm sick of the stupid problems that made me hate this car.
