1997 Dodge Stratus 184,000 mi,
Windshield washer will only dribble fluid.
I have had a few dodge stratus' and all have had clogged windshield wiper fluid lines! I never fixed them because it wasn't worth the cost since I could just stop at a gas station and clean them myself but can be a hassle sometimes when taking trips... With collecting bugs on windows and having to pull over and clean them.... Dodge has had several repeating problems on these cars that should have recalls but don't! Transmission and head gaskets on base models, a/c and heater blower switch goes out every few mths, odometer shortage issues, brake problems, ect are common among all models! Buyer beware! I love these cars, but have to realize what is being purchased and do your research! These are great cars when you find one that is in great shape and make sure it's a v6! They r less prone to problems but still get them checked out thoroughly by a good mechanic before handing over your $$$!!!
