2000 Dodge Stratus ProblemsWater Leak Due to Plugged AC Drain
A plugged AC evaporator drain tube can cause a water leak inside the car; usually near the front passenger's feet.
Spark plug tube seals fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.
When a no start condition is caused by a faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensor, related fault codes stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) should not be trusted. Our technicians tell us that under certain conditions a fault code can be stored for the "good" sensor. Care should be taken to properly diagnose this condition.

The information on how to secure a car seat properly using tether anchors using step by step, illustrated procedures is missing.

Owners were sent an addendum to the owners manual that addresses tether strap installation.
Dodge is recalling 2000 Chrysler Cirrus, Dodge Stratus, and Plymouth Breeze models because the stand-off bracket could separate from the block and cause damage to the right-side brakes. This can cause a half-system brake loss. Dealers will add a brake line bracket to the right front brake tube.
