1998 Dodge Stratus Overview

The 1998 Dodge Stratus keeps the tradition of being Dodge's mid-line family sedan. With two available trims, the base and the ES, the 1998 Dodge Stratus gives both affordability and comfort, depending on what you're looking for. With a 2.0 I4, a 2.4 I4 or a 2.5-liter V6 available depending on the trim level, the 1998 Dodge Stratus can get you around town within the speed limit with reasonable efficiency. Gas mileage is rather good, anywhere from 19/28 if you have the 4-speed automatic to 27/37 from the manual. Optional ABS, child-door locks, power locks, and driver and passenger airbags keep the occupants of the car safe.

In addition to being safe, there are a number of standard features and options available to make sure that everyone in the car remains comfortable. First and foremost among these is the large amount of passenger room that the 1998 Dodge Stratus boasts. Other features are air conditioning, power windows, leather seats, a power sunroof, and a CD player, just to name a few. The 1998 Dodge Stratus is a car that lets you drive around happy while you're going to work or getting your groceries (which can fit easily in the 15.7 cubic feet of storage space).

Owners of the 1998 Dodge Stratus almost unanimously had something to complain about, and also almost always appreciated the roominess of the car. Head gaskets, transmissions, and other random parts of the 1998 Stratus fail. This is a practical car for daily driving if you don't mind having to put some money into repairs now and then.
