i need an answer asap. i need to know the reliability of these vehicles also.
I agree the 3.8 is a very good motor. Its been in production since the 60's, I believe. The Imp with the 3.8 is the most reliable of the listed cars.Never go Chrysler. I think those Stratus' have the battery located in the left front tire. Such a pain in the butt to test or replace one.
I'm a diehard GM guy but I would never recommend buying a GM with a 3.4L because of the terrible lower intake manifold gaskets. The Rendevous only comes with a 3.4L so stay away from that.
Highly recommend a 3.8L Impala. One of the most dependable engines out there. Every manufacture and car has its problems but these are reliable.
