    Reliable Car To Zip Around Town — I used to own a 2003 Stratus, now I own a 1998 Stratus. My 03 had a v6 and my 98 has a 4 cylinder. The 1998 gets better gas mileage, it's still comfortable up front and back...there's plenty of foot room in the back seat, which is nice. The driver's side has an adjustment on the seat where it can make the chair go up or down which I thought was nice. The controls on the panel on the stereo & the AC are easy to see and easy to control. The cup holders on both the 03 and the 98 are the same. They suck. You can only fit like a soda can in them. The paint chips and fades. Also, I've never experienced this with my 03, but only with my 98...the ignition fuse is faulty. This is a widespread problem among Stratuses. My tranny on my 98 would have to be "special ordered"...pricey fix. Stratus is a nice car...it's fast, it zips me around curves easily, gets really good gas mileage, my tank is still sitting just below full tank after running errands around town and driving 10 miles coming home.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas mileage, excellent handling, and high rpms.

    Cons: Ignition fuse, paint

    Just A Dd Driver Till I Can Afford An ///m Car — [Performance] -140 bhp @ 5200 -160 lb-ft @ 4000 [Build Quality] -Its pretty rigid which gives it the ability to tackle tight corners [Appearance] -Not the best but it really doesn't affect the speed. [Fun Factor] -For a 4 door car with a 4-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission, its pretty darn fun. lol [Modifications] -Stock....not for long

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Low stance = good handling, has AC, You have fun driving it like you stole it. 37 MPG

    Cons: Automatic, drum brakes (rear), FWD

    Pros: stuff

    Cons: stuff

    Pros: Luxury and spacious interior
    The Feel of an American car
    A powerful V6 2.5 L engine

    Cons: The mileage but its really not a problem coz petrol is really cheap in Saudi Arabia

    2.4l Fun Little 4-cylinder — The car looks great and feels good to sit in, but the 150hp engine takes away from its appeal. The overall design of the car flows beautifully, but the raised rear deck takes away some of the rear view. 115,000+ miles and she's still going strong :-)

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Power
