2006 Dodge Stratus

In its final year of production, the Dodge Stratus midsize sedan got a revised R/T trim with a 2.7-liter, 200-hp V6 powertrain. New standard features include a prominent rear spoiler, 17-inch wheels, and more leather in the interior. The 2006 Stratus comes in two trims: SXT and R/T.

Gas mileage comes out to around 22 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway. Both trims have 4 doors and seat 5. When comparing the two trims, keep in mind that the R/T offers more standard features as well as an optional sunroof.

Overall, the Dodge Stratus earns brownie points for low price and a spacious trunk. Unfortunately, the '06 Stratus falls short in just about every other department. Pick up a 2006 Dodge Stratus if you're on a budget, but don't expect to get much more than you pay for.
