Great Car For The Money — Bought this car in 2007 and have only had to replace front brake disks and hub bearing, tires and oil. Of course the regular maintenance stuff too. Love it. It's been coast to coast and daily driver in Colorado. No major issues.

Well Made — I like the overall appearance of the car and its reliability, handling and fuel economy. Wish it had a little more get up and go but most definetly happy with it. Not the sports car I am used to driving

Dodge Stratus - The Cloud — For a first car owner the Dodge Stratus is a wonderful car. It provides excellant safety, great stock sound system, along with a nice performance. As for gas, it is one of the best in town. A twelve(12) gallon and awesome gas mileage is all for the Stratus!

I Absolutely Love My Car. — Beautiful, clean lines; easy-to-care-for engine; working cruise control. After two other cars with broken cruise control, this baby is a dream for me.

Reliable And Good On Your Pocket — I like about this car that it is great on gas, it is a very reliable vehicle, and very comfortable, and is a very safe car to drive. Is not a hard card to maintain and is great as a family car.

2006 Stratus Sxt — I really like this car a lot. It is very spacious for a car of this type. I didn't have many problems with it, the transmission went out in 2010, but other than that I always felt it was reliable & got good gas mileage.

Pros

Very roomy and handles great.

Cons

Every 1,000 miles or so something breaks since 75,000 miles. Odd things, not usual wear and tear.

Never Again — Great car at first but once I hit 75,000 miles (with following the maintenance schedule) it's just been one problem after another. A/C compressor, cat, idler pulley, cooling fan, fuel rail, etc. I went to the junk yard for a few parts and found a WELL extensive list of dodge stratus' they stopped making them in 2006 and I hardly see them on the road...that's because they are all in the junkyard. Not to mention all of the cosmetic rust (probably bad paint job)

Good sound, fun to drive.

Cons

Gear changes not very smooth

Stratus — Good looking car, definitly a good fast exccellerator. Unfortunately sometimes the gears do not shift very smoothly (it is an automatic and sometimes stutters) but definitly a good fun drive. Has a very good sound system (ofcourse you can hook up your own, but the bass is great automatically.) I would recommend the dodge stratus.

Great Vehicle, Hands Down. — I like the sleak design. It's nice and roomie on the inside without having a huge/heavy car to drag around and deplete ur gas mileage. It also has it's good days where it gets up and going when it needs to. Great fuel efficiency for it's year. Love the engine, I beat it the hell up daily and only changed the oil once in the past year(when it was changed it wasn't even that dark and it was regular oil, not synthetic).
