Don't Bother Buying One — I only keep the car because I can fix it myself. I keep it running with minimum maintenance, having security in mind. It almost looks like this car was designed so you need to the dealership now and then for maintenance that does not occur with other cars/manufacturers. If you can fix cars, want a powerful engine, don't mind fuel mileage and want a cheap car, this one is for you. Otherwise, don't buy this.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Powerful engine
Spacious trunk,
Smooth ride

Cons: Unrelieable engine.
Every now and then, something is failing.
Parts are often badly located.
Painful and costly maintenance.
Bad handling.
Even if the car is big, it doesn't have space overhead if you're above 5' 8'. Seats are small for me (5' 8")

Dodge's Are Decent. — The perofrmance is good, brakes need replaced every once in a while. The build quality is excellent, deals with door slamming all the time. The appearance is extremely aeordynamic without looking like a car tree huggers would drive. The cost is reasonable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power window, power locks and decent engine

Cons: The weather stripping on the windshield is coming off.

Outstanding Value For A Dependable, Reliable, Economical Sedan Offering Great Interior Space — Base model w/2.0L 5-speed. Extremely dependable and reliable. Great fuel economy of 35.5 comined city/hwy, mostly hwy. Great useable interior and trunk space. Above average factory stereo. Sharp, sporty-looking sedan. Great factory original Michelin tires contribute to a great smooth ride and lasted 85,000 miles. Car still going strong at 160K miles.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Peppy engine with 5-spped offering great fuel economy for size of car

Cons: Original brakes could have been better, yet diddn't wear prematurely

Poop — It breaks weekly, I'm always putting money into it, the gas does not seem to last very long, it used to be a roadtripping machine, now it is deemed undrivable for one week due to the fact the back windshield broke and i have no side mirror cuz they are not very sturdy.

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

Pros: its indestructible

Cons: it always has something wrong with it

No — The dodge stratus looks like any other simple car but you would be surprised by how low the mpg is. it only gets low 20 in mpg. The acceleration is ok but the brakes kind of suck and the car needs fixing up a lot. it rattles while speeding up and no solution to that problem can be found

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: the color haha

Cons: mpg

Fun, Attractive Car... — Very nice car to drive, feels like driving a cloud. Very smooth acceleration. Takes corners at high speeds with NO loss of grip. Handles like a smaller car than it is. Runs amazing, sounds mean and accelerates great for being just a 4cyl. Build could be a little sturdier, I think my car (an older Taurus) is actually built more solid, of course most older cars are. Nice looking car, easy on the eyes and definitely has a "cool factor" to it. Cost of ownership to my knowledge is fairly low...gets good gas mileage and the only problem I've seen it have since she got it cost me a buck to fix (roll of electrical tape). Overall a fun car that has plenty of years left in it.

Pros: Runs like a dream, handles great

Cons: Just seems a little bit lower quality than something older

My Dodge Stratus.... — Like the gas mileage.. 28-30 (25 with a lead foot) but needs bigger engine and i'm desperate for horsepower/torque 4 cylinder just isn't cutting it for me.. It's okay to drive around, but i am wanting something way more sporty. Despite high gas prices, I'd kill for an SUV right now

Pros: MPG, turning circle

Cons: acceleration, transmission, ride, comfort, styling, interior quality, lack of  features, ease of acess, engine

Epic — Handles and runs pretty quick for a 4 door sedan. Alot of suspension issues, have replaced all ball joints/control arms except one... and that one needs to be replace too now.
