problem #2

  • 80,000 miles
The contact owns a 2004 Dodge Stratus. While driving 10 mph, she attempted to make a right turn, felt a bump and loud noises under the hood. She immediately drove the vehicle to a local mechanic. The mechanic stated that the failure was a result of the upper aluminum strut mounts and needed to be replaced immediately. The dealer stated that the parts would not be available until 08/14/08. The vehicle is parked and has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 80,000.

Click sound in left front area when accelerating (fwd and reverse) and breaking. Seems to be a common problem with Stratus R/T and the similar Mitsubishi eclipse. Similar complaints and discussion can be found here. www.eclipseforums.org/fortopic8583-0-asc-0.html.
