Awesome — it was my favorite car.it always ran well, only ever needed to replace the water pump once and the ignition keying once. was cheap and reliable, if i ever get the chance I'd buy it again. I need more words.

Eh, Not The Greatest Ever. — The Stratus handles pretty well and has a good amount of power behind it (so I think) it would be nice if it held up a little better. The body on mine is decent but everything started going bad all at once it seems like (A/C went out completely and now it won't start.)

Drive it off a cliff and collect your losses

Cons

Dodge

Pos — In the two years I owned this car it was in the shop about every third day. Its major faults were the wheel barrings, brakes, and transmission. To make it better my insurance co called it a sports sedan. This 1 car made me never want to buy another Dodge again.

Handling, craftsmanship (or lack thereof), seats, everything else.

Worst Car I've Ever Owned — Hated the car. The seats had absolutely no bolster whatsoever, so every turn you could feel yourself slipping out of the seat. The entire care felt like it was built by minimum-wage workers who cared nothing for craftsmanship. The handling was horrible, and just overall wasn't real pleased with my dabble in American cars.

Good gas milage. Hugs to road nicely

Slugish on the acceleration up to 4000 rpm. not intended for multiple tall or big people

25

2000 Stratus — its only a 4-cyl so its kinda slugish on the start line.. Slight rust and paint bubbling problems. other than that car is nice. Would recommend for an adults to and from work car. Very fun to drive.

Sounds and looks good

Cons

Gas mileage

35

Average — Quality of the car...some scratches, but overall looks good. Performance is about average, about 20 MPG, to be expected from the type of car it is(2.5L V6). I pay for insurance, my parents paid $2500 for it, used from my aunt, with about 94,000 miles(about 100,000 miles currently, owned for almost 2 years). Fun to drive at times, when gas is cheaper. Has needed quite a few repairs(2 new rear tires, new spark plugs, battery, fuel injector, had a corroded diode replaced) The rims were pretty bad but it has driven good for awhile now with no problems at all.

2000 Dodge Stratus Se — well if it is the 4 cylinder the gas milage sucks but very nice driving car if its a first. Its almost guranteed to rust out at the rocker pannels and hood. Head gaskets are known to go but mine has not and does not leak
