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.

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.

Sporty — We like the sports car feels in a family sedan. This car has alot of style for the low cost. It is extremely fun to drive Having owned several cars this has been vary comfortable and affordable. I would recommend owning this vehicle.

Pros

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.

Pros

reliable, roomy, good gas mileage

Cons

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.

Pros

Cool mature vehicle, perfect for families that like to drive the speed limit, or sometimes not at all.

Cons

Wasn't "fast", not alot of aftermarket options, so you basically have to stick with whatever it came with.  The car started falling apart after only 3 years!

Its A Roomy 4 Door, 4 Cylinder Car That Runs Smoother Than Dodge's Current 4 Door, 4 Cylinder Car. — This was my first official car. The 2002 Dodge Stratus SE had alot of room for 5 people to sit comfortably. Under the hood was a 2.4 4 cylinder engine with less electronic control than the newer Dodge Avenger, which left the ride in the driver's hands. After a few short years and most maintenance being met on time, the car slowly started to die. Beginning with a problem with the spark plugs, to needing a brand new brake drum replacement, to the fuel injection giving out while trying to shift out of park or neutral. The Dodge Stratus SE gave all it could during our 3 year companionship.
