"All this car needs is a caliper on the driver side, a wheel bearing on the passenger side, and the window power lock needs to be fixed too. Also, the front left fender is a little bent, rusted, and the paint is chipped from the tire falling off due to a michanical issue. Otherwise, this car is in good condition and drives well."

Pros: "27 mpg, nice handling and ride quality"

Cons: "water pump and battery locations are dumb."

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

"Purchased with 99K miles. The only repairs needed were a front wheel bearing and a battery. BUT replacing the battery is a challenge. The battery is under the car in front of the left front wheel. jack up the car remove the wheel remove the cover panel, remove hold in bracket and slide out the battery. Reverse the procedure to install. The only other potential problem is the water pump. It is inside the front cover of the motor. If the seal on the pump leaks, your coolant goes into the engine oil. If you check your oil frequently and detect a problem, the repair is costly. Should you find out the hard way about a pump failure, JUNK THE CAR."

"I would purchase another but was gifted another vehicle. This vehicle handles beautifully and with 4 studded tires, I did not find a place it would not go on snow and ice."

"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."
