Pros

Very fun, when it's in a stick.  Large trunk.  Attractive. comfortabe and accomodating to passengers

Cons

although it has a big trunk, the trunk lid could be bigger.  cup holders aren't the most ergenomic, for a manual configuration.  small mirors.

I Wish They Still Made A Car Like This. — i bought this car with only 48000 miles on it for only $8K and i love it. it is more fun to drive than any other car i've ever driven thanks, in part to the 5-speed manual tranny. It's also a really nice car in it's own right; with leather seats and a 4 disc CD changer. It is based a a 4 door sedan so there is acctually alot of room in the back seat, unlike other sport, compact coupes. In addition is also has a very large trunk, even in comparison to some full sized sedans, like my step dads infiniti M45.

SPORTY looks, ride was awesome, perfect handling, fun car to drive, Infinity surround sound system was the best, leather was strong and soft, plenty of power, interior design was my favorite of all my vehicles. lots of options for the money

Cons

trunk springs went out prematurely,

Amazing Sports Car At A Fraction Of The Cost — I loved everything about my baby! AND I BABYED it! 5 speed had lots of power, and driving it was so much fun I would go driving around for no reason. The Infinity sound system was the best factory system I have ever heard, my 99 Malibu only came close to it. The interior was very nicely done, sporty yet very functional, and I personally loved the little digital compass and clock in backlit orange in the center stack, gave it a lux feeling. Sunroof was a must in the car, and for the size of the car it was pretty roomy. Overall I would buy another 2002 model in a minute! great car and definitely fun as can be to drive!

Dodge Stratus - 2002 - R/t Coupe — I love my car. I bought this when I had no other options and it was a great deal. I have enjoyed my time with it. It is fast off the line, handles great at high speed and stop quickly.

My Rt — Absolutely love this vehicle. Wish I was able to drive it longer, but I need to purchase a family vehicle. I love that it is a 2-door car, but a 4-door will be much easier for a family.

quick, tight suspension, short throw between gears

Cons

heavy car, hard to find parts for it

Fun Car To Drive — accelerates fast, hugs the road on turns, the 3.0L V6 puts out enough power to run through all the gears quick.

reliable, roomy, good gas mileage

engine light always on!!! oh well.
Not unique - a lot of other dodge stratuses are on the road, and I'd love to have a car that fits my personality better.

It Drives, That's All I Need. — I got this car from my parents for my 18th birthday. They got a really great deal, which is good for me since I have to pay for half of it. They got it at auction with electrical problems and rock bottom price, then my stepdad got it fixed. It is very reliable and drives pretty good now that it's fixed. There are a lot of cosmetic problems (scratches, front bumper, etc.) that are the fault of the previous owner, but besides that, I think it's a pretty good-looking car, just not very unique.
