"There is not a whole lot you can say about a car that strands your daughter on the highway when coming home for spring break except for this don't ever buy this car ever period. Well one other thing it kind of reminds me of 2.5L 4 cylinder with the continuously leaking rear main oil seal. But the 2.7L V6 is worse. Dodge should have recalled both of these motors but they didn't."

Pros: "Great value, fun to drive"

Cons: "road noise, gas mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Car has been good transportation overall. It has the 2.7L Flex Fuel V6. Good acceleration, but thirsty on gas. Gets roughly 20mpg combined. Lots of winding, twisty rural roads where I live, and the car handles great. I can take curves much faster in this car with confidence than in my previous sedan. The suspension is firm, but not overly so. It drives great on the highway, with a comfortable and controlled ride. The interior is nothing great, but not bad either. Decent amount of trunk space. There is a fair amount of road noise in this car, and you can hear the engine whine through the speakers when you accelerate. Kind of annoying, but got used to it after a while. I know there are noise suppression filters you can easily wire into the radio to address this issue, but I didn't get around to doing it. Got a great deal on it when it had just 28K miles, and have put 60K trouble free miles on it since. This is my first Dodge, and have been happy overall with this card."

"One bad point with this vehicle is acceleration, it has a fairly small engine and it is 3000lbs so you aren't going to be racing in this car... It is very nice and comfortable. would make a good car for a small family."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"I bought this car used in 2008. I drove it hard for 6 years. It has had some repairs, mostly electrical. It gets pretty decent mileage for its size. It is pretty roomy and nice to have the option of putting seats down to transport longer items. However, when they get up in miles, the timing belt has a tendency to snap and destroy the engine. This has not happened in my case, but I know of two others it happened to recently."
