2000 Dodge Stratus Overview

For 2000, the base model of the Dodge Stratus was renamed the SE, and this change in name brought forth some changes in the mid-sized sedan. The 2.4-liter engine has been removed as an option in 2000, with the 2.0-liter and 2.5 coming standard in the SE and ES, respectively. Gas mileage of the 2000 Stratus varies from 19 city miles-36 highway miles, depending on which trim you have. While the 2000 Dodge Stratus is certainly not known as an acceleration or speed powerhorse, either engine produces enough horsepower to get you and your family wherever it is that you need to go.

Comforts in the 2000 Dodge Stratus are abundant. Air conditioning, a CD changer, leather seats, and a moonroof are all available. Safety has not been forgotten either, with available 4 wheel anti-lock brakes, power locks, an anti-theft system, and passenger and driver airbags. With all of the safety and features crammed into the 2000 Dodge Stratus, there is still plenty of room in both the trunk and the passenger compartment for whatever you might want to reasonably carry, be it groceries or children.

The overwhelming complaint in the 2000 Dodge Stratus was that the cup holders are too small and that they are too far away. While this was common in all years, the sheer number of these comments was astounding. Overall, there were few consistent problems in owner reviews. Transmissions and brakes were brought up numerous times, but not nearly as often as years before. Owners of the 2000 Dodge Stratus seem to think that this is a good little car, perfect for day-to-day family driving.
