I've noticed a trend here...Dodge makes crap no matter if it's the first year or the last of the particular model. Hence the reason I have never owned and never will own a Dodge. I don't care how cool some of their cars look. Related Dodge crap story. A buddy of mine was going to buy a Sebring convertible (and not the first year of production either). It was used but only 6 months old with nearly no miles. The dealership let him have it for the weekend and he decided to take it on a 180 mile trip. He went to wash it and he said it litterally was raining inside the car. Then he started to drive for the trip, it broke down half way. He had it towed back and told the dealer "forget it". My brother-in-law bought a new Neon in 2000. At 17000 miles the transmission went. At 19000 miles rear main seal. At 22000 miles it got t-boned and was totalled. He said it was a blessing from god to get rid of that pile of crap. I have owned a few Fords and many GM's I never in my life had any large problems with any of them until they were really old and/or had a lot of miles. My 68 Mustang had 112000 miles when I got it and it had been in 4 accidents and one wrote it off (that was when I got it, writen off). I put it back on the road in 9 months and drove it trouble free for 2 more years. It was a great car.
