My Baby — This is a comfy car to drive. Working on fixing it up. Hopefully make it go a little faster. More style too. I got the car from my grand father. It is an '01 with less than 90K miles on it.

White Dodge — The luck comes out of hood, Impressive for a showcase and tourist to travel throughout for thousand of miles, from places to places while it travel, it will get us over there less than a second or even a minute.

Pros

Fun to drive

Cons

The hardest car to mod

25

Very Dependable — Fun to drive. Makes you feel better when you can mod a car when it's not a very mainstream. Not very expensive to own, right now it gets horrible gas milege. In the process of getting the car to look perfect.

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

Reliable "first Car" — I liked this car initially because of how it looked, it runs good, and has always been reliable for me. I didn't like that I had to fix so many things over the period of owning it, such as fixing the A/C, buying new tires, and replacing the brakes, but I guess that goes for a lot of cars. Overall, it has been a good car to me. I would like to keep it, because it was my first car ever, but I need a car with more space and 4 doors.

My Dodge Stratus - "bullet" — Loved this car, it was Great on gas and it was bright red! Moon roof, leather seats and a nice sound system. I got it up to about 125mph but I'm sure it could go faster. I've never gone that fast before, nor do I really want to again.

Pros

Unique styling interior and exterior, decent city-mpg, premium sound system maintains quality, large trunk area, collapsible rear seats, nice set of options (sunroof, spoiler, etc), rear cup holders, lockable glove box, padded center console arm rest, strong rear bumper   

Cons

Limited selection of aftermarket parts, coupe dashboards very fragile, difficult and expensive to tint rear window, difficult to remove dashboard or other interior parts, front bumper too low

45

Unique Alternative To An Eclipse Or Sebring Without Compromising Engine, Handling, Or Design. — The 3.0 liter V6 Stratus coupe has a Mistubishi engine and shares a platform with the Eclipse. It has a decent acceleration but I would recommend a manual transmission if possible. The Stratus has a unique interior and exterior styling which makes it stand out against similar competing models but also make sit difficult to find many aftermarket or replacement parts. The two-door has a large trunk space and a comfortable amount of rear-passenger leg room. Bucket seats make the Stratus feel lower than other two-door cars and the fabric is easy to clean and very durable.

cheap

Cons

not too exciting

Cheap Economical Everyday Driver — Its cheap, but has enough power to drive normally. Parts are inexpensive and gas mileage is decent with 28 or so. Its fairly reliable for a dodge and isnt too bad to drive. the suspension is too loose and steering is just OK.

Don't Knock It Till You Try It. — This car took me by surprise the first day I test drove it. Compared to my old charger, it was PEPPY! This car has above and beyond my expectation for a Stratus R/T and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
