    Built For Speed — The 4spd transmission is not as fun to drive as the 5spd manual but it still does the job. the car is very quick on acceleration and handles well at high speeds. The Venom chip makes it difficult for regular driving, just tapping the gas, the car wants to go.

    Pros: fast 0-60

    Cons: 4spd auto w/sportshift, brakes are weak

    Unique Alternative To An Eclipse Or Sebring Without Compromising Engine, Handling, Or Design. — The 3.0 liter V6 Stratus coupe has a Mistubishi engine and shares a platform with the Eclipse. It has a decent acceleration but I would recommend a manual transmission if possible. The Stratus has a unique interior and exterior styling which makes it stand out against similar competing models but also make sit difficult to find many aftermarket or replacement parts. The two-door has a large trunk space and a comfortable amount of rear-passenger leg room. Bucket seats make the Stratus feel lower than other two-door cars and the fabric is easy to clean and very durable.

    Pros: Unique styling interior and exterior, decent city-mpg, premium sound system maintains quality, large trunk area, collapsible rear seats, nice set of options (sunroof, spoiler, etc), rear cup holders, lockable glove box, padded center console arm rest, strong rear bumper   

    Cons: Limited selection of aftermarket parts, coupe dashboards very fragile, difficult and expensive to tint rear window, difficult to remove dashboard or other interior parts, front bumper too low

    Sleeper Sedan But Poor Quality — This car could smoke people with 2.7 V6 (200 HP, 200 ft-lb). Good enough handling. Expensive to own because of multiple quality/ reliability issues.

    Pros: Quick, inexpensive

    Cons: Reliability, quality.  Cost of ownership

    Great Car Needs A Bigger Engine — the car as far as space is great, lots of leg room, handles great, its a good solid feel. the only downfall is that its a little slugish.All of the four cylinders need to have a 3.0 v6 put in then you would have an all around great car.

    Owner for 2 years, 6 months

    Miles Driven per Year:40,000

    Pros: spacious,looks nice, great seating, interior is stylish.

    Cons: slugish needs more power.

    An Affordable, Fun To Drive Car..... —

    I've done just a little bit of work since I was here last. It's lowered, solid motor mounts, etc.(See Modifications) The cost of ownership on this car is er, less than stellar, but it dust have 100 miles short of 180 on the original drivetrain minus the clutch, so I guess it's doing alright. Great performance for what it is, even if it is a little heavy. The quality of the product, even newer ones, isn't that great. The dash is cracking horribly, which is something that plagued almost all of these cars, including the 3G Mitsu Eclipse, which the car is based off of. The outside, IMO, is sexy as hell, I mean, it's almost a viper mini me. The interior looks good, it's just it's lacking the quality. I've put a ton of work in this thing since I've bought it, some necessary, and some not necessary, but overall, it's not a cheap car to own. This car, is a blast to drive, if you've got a decent paying job, you'll be able to afford to keep driving this car. I mean, I've beat the crap out of it for almost two years....yet, it always seems to want more.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun, Descently Fast. It gets alot of attention.

    Cons: Cracked Dash..Corrosion hera and there.
