Pros

Runs like a dream, handles great

Cons

Just seems a little bit lower quality than something older

Fun, Attractive Car... — Very nice car to drive, feels like driving a cloud. Very smooth acceleration. Takes corners at high speeds with NO loss of grip. Handles like a smaller car than it is. Runs amazing, sounds mean and accelerates great for being just a 4cyl. Build could be a little sturdier, I think my car (an older Taurus) is actually built more solid, of course most older cars are. Nice looking car, easy on the eyes and definitely has a "cool factor" to it. Cost of ownership to my knowledge is fairly low...gets good gas mileage and the only problem I've seen it have since she got it cost me a buck to fix (roll of electrical tape). Overall a fun car that has plenty of years left in it.

Pros

Powerful engine
Spacious trunk,
Smooth ride

Cons

Unrelieable engine.
Every now and then, something is failing.
Parts are often badly located.
Painful and costly maintenance.
Bad handling.
Even if the car is big, it doesn't have space overhead if you're above 5' 8'. Seats are small for me (5' 8")

Don't Bother Buying One — I only keep the car because I can fix it myself. I keep it running with minimum maintenance, having security in mind. It almost looks like this car was designed so you need to the dealership now and then for maintenance that does not occur with other cars/manufacturers. If you can fix cars, want a powerful engine, don't mind fuel mileage and want a cheap car, this one is for you. Otherwise, don't buy this.

Pros

its indestructible

Cons

it always has something wrong with it

25

Poop — It breaks weekly, I'm always putting money into it, the gas does not seem to last very long, it used to be a roadtripping machine, now it is deemed undrivable for one week due to the fact the back windshield broke and i have no side mirror cuz they are not very sturdy.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Dodge Stratus.... — Like the gas mileage.. 28-30 (25 with a lead foot) but needs bigger engine and i'm desperate for horsepower/torque 4 cylinder just isn't cutting it for me.. It's okay to drive around, but i am wanting something way more sporty. Despite high gas prices, I'd kill for an SUV right now

Pros

Power window, power locks and decent engine

Cons

The weather stripping on the windshield is coming off.

Dodge's Are Decent. — The perofrmance is good, brakes need replaced every once in a while. The build quality is excellent, deals with door slamming all the time. The appearance is extremely aeordynamic without looking like a car tree huggers would drive. The cost is reasonable.

Outstanding Value For A Dependable, Reliable, Economical Sedan Offering Great Interior Space — Base model w/2.0L 5-speed. Extremely dependable and reliable. Great fuel economy of 35.5 comined city/hwy, mostly hwy. Great useable interior and trunk space. Above average factory stereo. Sharp, sporty-looking sedan. Great factory original Michelin tires contribute to a great smooth ride and lasted 85,000 miles. Car still going strong at 160K miles.

Pros

Great gas mileage, very reliable, fairly easy to work on

Cons

It is a Dodge so it does have a transmission made by Chrysler which you can never trust. Battery is located in the wheel well which means you have to take the tire off to remove the battery.

Great Car — I currently own a white '99 Dodge Stratus with the 2.4L DOHC 4 cylinder engine. This is the second '99 stratus I've owner (I still have the original for a parts car). The 2.4 engine is the only Mopar motor I'd ever recommend to someone looking to buy a Dodge or Chrysler. This motor produces about 150hp, which really gets up and goes since its such a light car, and gets excellent gas mileage. The previous Stratus I drove has about 170k and still runs like it just drove off the lot but has a rear main seal leak which is something that just eventually goes out in any car. The only thing I've even had to replace in that car was the started and I got a used one from the junk yard for $13 and it still works to this day. If you are looking for reliability and a cheap economical car I'd highly recommend getting a Stratus...just make sure you get one with the 2.4L because the 2.0L 4 cylinder and 2.5L v6 are both junk!!!
