Good car

I liked the comfort of the seats,and the quality of the entire car.The gas mileage was o.k..Went through alot of brakes and front rotors.Transmission problems around 75000 miles but it was covered under warranty.Car has over 215,000 miles on it now and am still driving it back and forth to work.

It served me well

Engine didn't seem like it could handle the size of the car. Always started until I took it to a tire shop for a timing belt repair. Lot's of time made noise when it started! Ran Lucas in it after the engine developed a knock at 80000 miles after taking it to a discount retailer and they left a quart and a half of oil out. Made it 206000 miles in spite of all and would probably still be running today if I had taken it to somewhere more reputable for the timing belt. Some of the quirks that it had would have been better addressed by a dealer.

Wish I'd of been the first owner not the second and final unless probated.

I liked everything, most reliable vehicle. Never failed to start and perform, the gas milage, the 4 cylinder engine with unbelievable power, has the DOHC engine. Low maintenance, have driven it for just over 10 years, has 165,*** miles. 2 times pads and shoes, once rotors, tires, tune ups, oil changes and one timing belt change. Roomy, lots of cargo space. Organized cup holders, comfortable seating in a mid size sedan. Nice suspension. Reliable, never failed to start, remarkable really! Same exhaust from the engine to the tail pipe. If they made cars to the same standard today buying new might be more advantageous, I would not of traded it for a new one knowing what I do today with this car. Would like another just like it. Bought it used in 2003 for just under $4,000. Best $$ ever spent on a vehicle. I can't say enough about this vehicle, Dodge did this one right.

Very good.

Good reliable car, great gas mileage. Good leg room inside for a family of long legged people, good head room. Easy access to radio and AC/heat controls for both front seat passengers. Deep trunk, easily accessible. But the battery is very inconvenient to replace.
