I love my 02 Dodge Stratus. It has alot of miles but it keeps on going. At least, it did until today. The left front steering knuckle and lower tie rod completely separated. I have looked on the internet and have found recalls for just this problem. How can I verify the recall notices and if I can't get verification of recall notices, how much will it cost me for repairs?
My 2002 stratus is great, but lately as I'm driving it loses power, my RPM needle goes down and then the engine shuts off, it's not the fuel pump, so sometimes this happens not very often.
