1996 bDodge Stratus. I shouldn't have ever bought that car, but I had just moved back home and was starting school in 4 days. In the first month, I went through a head gasket, all the speakers, 3 heater cores, a wheel bearing, lower control arm, radiator, tires, etc. I could go on for ever.

BTW, I still have the god damned thing...any takers???

That isn't even the end of it. One day, I was driving to work and the battery light came. No biggy, I though...alternator belt must have broke. When I get to work, I open the hood and the belt is fine. Great, I need an alternator. WRONG. There'a tiny aluminum bracket that holds the alternator bracket to the motor. The engineers at Chrylser decided to combine this peice with the timing cover and sandwich it with the motor mount. So I had to remove all kinds of crap to replace this part.

I just bought a new car (THANK GOD...a 1997 Thunderbird V8), and the dodge sits at the shop waiting for a new home...
