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.

Not a familiy car

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.

Dodge Stratus — Needed new sruts. But it's pretty good now. It's fun to drive and it gets me where i want to go. With gas at $1.60, it takes about $20 to fill up. Performance is pretty good so far. My lights sometimes suck.
