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.

Pros

Cons

Its A Car And Id Like To Call Myself A Mopar Fan. — Amazing grocery getter with a kick only when in stick how ever. I owned an 02 stratus as a automatic and hated it. its eliable and as for most manual cars has decent gas milage i beleave the sticker sais 28 highway miles but that also depends on how you drive. its got a little over steer but in my mind its perfect for brakes work amazing there about to work better as i change um soon acceleration=the bomb as long as you can drive stick. realy roomy interior like race car look to the body. its maintenance cost is like any other "sports" car can be expensive if mis used. absolutly fun for drag racing hooks up right no matter the conditions.

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.
