1998 Dodge Stratus Sedan FWDReview
Julian writes:

Amazing — Welcome to the Stratus!! Designed by Chrysler, this car features the cab forward design based in the 1987 Lamborghini Portofino, a 4-door sedan. This car, along with its bigger cousins like the dodge Intrepid, Chrsyler Concorde, Chrysler LHS, Chrysler Cirrus, Plymouth Breeze, were very succesful in the market, yet they encountered some problems. For example, the 2.4L engine suffered premature head gasket failure and many other reliability problems that hindered the sales of the vehicle. In addition, any simple repair seems to be a nightmare due to the lack of space and placement of basic parts, like the battery. However, Chrsyler impressed the public with this car as it has a cavernous trunk and a spacious back seat. Acceleration seems to be good, but could be improved with a bigger and more powerful V6 and th ability to have a manual transmission. Car has standard arbags, a/c, power windows/mirrors/locks and it's a car that would last for years

Pros: extremely good looks, cold-ice a/c, variety of standard equipment, space in the trunk, enormous back seat, quietness in the cabin, superior audio system, powerful I-4, but most important, MADE IN AMERICA.

Cons: gas guzzler, repairs are hard, visibility in the rear, no standard CD player, no manual transmission
